Investigators are examining flight recorders and other evidence to try to determine the cause of a plane crash in Moscow that left four people dead
Remarkable footage of a Moscow plane crash that killed four people has emerged.
The footage, which is shot from a car, shows how close one motorist came to disaster as the plane overshot the runway and broke into pieces.
The camera catches the moment the plane hits a Moscow motorway, showing a wheel from the aircraft slamming into the side of a car as debris is strewn across the road.
At least four Russians died when the passenger airliner crashed as the pilots made a second attempt at landing.
Investigators are now examining flight recorders to try to determine the cause of the crash.
The Tu-204 jet belonging to Russian airline Red Wings and was carrying eight people, all of them crew members, when it careered off the runway while landing at Moscow's Vnukovo Airport.
It ploughed partly into an adjacent road, broke into pieces and caught fire.
The four survivors were said to be in a critical or serious condition in Moscow hospitals.
Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for Russia's main investigative agency, was quoted by Russian news agencies today as saying the data recorders were being examined, along with fuel samples.
In addition, he said flight documents for the plane have been taken from the airline for examination.
