Russian news sources say 14 people were dead at the site, including 6 children, and another died in hospital. There are five in critical condition in hospital.

As we always say we should not prejudge but I sincerely hope this is not another instance of failure to select take-off flap. Description of accident has a lot of similarity to a couple which have featured on Air-crash Investigations. ( Please don’t shoot me for speculating!)

 Cold I believe. Could easily be icing.   At a lot of those places you would need to de ice before taking off. Sometimes hard to organise or they don't want to pay for it. .Nev
