    Loss of control in IMC?
    Stall?
    Unreliable airspeed?
    AF-447?
    Colgan 3407?
    All of the above?

    The crash was caught on a surveillance camera. Not very good footage due to the distance, but it still shows the impact and explosion.

    Half way through the video is a zoomed in version of the crash.

    In flight break up around 6000 ft seems to be a part of the slightly factual rumor mill...

    Along with engine fires and heroic efforts to guide the plane away from people on the ground, of course.

    The Russian Emergencies Ministry says it is verifying reports that the An-148 has crashed outside Moscow.

    The aircraft departed from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport and was heading for Orsk, a city lying close to the Russia-Kazakhstan border.
