An aeroplane with 28 people on board crashed into the sea on Tuesday, July 26, off Russia's far eastern Kamchatka peninsula as it was preparing to land.



The plane, an Antonov An-26 twin-engined turboprop, was en route from regional capital Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Palana, a village in northern Kamchatka, when it lost contact with air traffic control, Russia's emergencies ministry said.



There were 22 passengers and six crew on board, the ministry said.



Village mayor Olga Mokhireva was among the passengers, the TASS agency quoted local authorities as saying.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
