71 killed in plane crash outside Moscow

(AP) – Emergency teams are combing snowy fields outside Moscow for debris of the Russian airliner and remains of 71 people who were killed in the crash.

The An-148 twin-engine regional jet bound for Orsk in southern Urals went down minutes after taking off from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport Sunday.

Still the crash re-ignited questions about the An-148, since the model’s safety record is spotty, with one previous crash and several major incidents in which pilots struggled to land safely.
