The passenger jet went down in a steep dive and exploded in a giant fireball on the tarmac in a chilling video broadcast on Monday by Russian television stations.
An inquiry into a helicopter crash in Russia has revealed that the accident which killed all the three aboard occurred because a drunk passenger was allowed to fly the chopper by its drunk pilot.
The Tu-134 slammed into a highway just minutes before it was to land at the Petrozavodsk airport.
The `blonde`s error` has been
identified as the cause of the crash of Yakovlev Yak-42 jet
plane last week.
The Kremlin said Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has been put in charge of the airline overhaul.
The crash that killed 43 people was one of the worst aviation disasters ever in sports.
Aviation authorities say they will inspect all Yak-42 jets currently in service in Russia.
Russian authorities Wednesday said
pilot error could be the cause for the air crash in Karelia
region even as the death toll climbed to 45 after a 9-year-old
boy succumbed to injuries.
