Plane crash in Moscow
A recording captured from a vehicle traveling on the highway near the international airport Vnukovo shows the time when part of the stricken airliner yesterday in Russia hits the asphalt.

Four people died after a Tupolev-204 from Czech Republic left the runway after making an emergency landing and caught fire. The device, which only carrying eight crew members flying Red Wings Russian airline, broke into three and a party came up the highway located about 300 meters.

In the video, posted on YouTube, shows how part of the plane falls along the road and an object that appears to be a wheel hits a vehicle that continues to circulate despite the blow. The car carrying the camera passes over various fragments before stopping in the right shoulder.

A pilot's fault?
The Moscow prosecutor's office is investigating the causes of the accident. The most likely scenario is that it was due to pilot error, according to sources yesterday said the Ministry of Emergency Situations. The spokesman for the press service of the Government, Natalya Timakova, reported yesterday that the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the creation of a special commission to clarify the incident.

Vnukovo Airport is one of the three major airports in the Russian capital and is located about 28 kilometers from the city. In 2011, more than eight million passengers passed through the airport, which hosts both domestic and international flights.
