Antonov 22 crashes in Moscow

December 31 - Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the aircrew that died earlier this week following the crash of an Antonov-22 in western Russia.

The military cargo plane crashed during a training exercise with the loss of 12 crew.

Russia media reports suggest that the ageing Soviet-era turboprop may have suffered an electrical failure.

Russia has grounded all its other An-22s although it is believed that the crashed plane is one of only five An-22 cargo planes still in service with the Russian military.

The An-22 can carry 60 tonnes of cargo and 300 soldiers with infantry weapons or 151 paratroopers.
