Crashed Russian plane used to be on the Almería route

The plane that crashed in Moscow on Saturday, killing five people, was used last summer on the Moscow – Almería route.

If you’ve flown Almería – Moscow, you’ve been on this plane

Operated by Russian travel company Red Wings, the Russian built Tupolev 204-100V, registration number RA64047, was used during the summer months to bring up to 200 Russian tourists at a time to Almería airport, according to La Voz de Almeria.  When the summer season ended, the plane was rerouted onto a Moscow – Prague route. It crashed and exploded last Saturday after skidding off the runway at Moscows Vnukovo airport.

A video of the crash, obtained via CNN, is here.
