Crude Google translate,

Rescuers can not begin to extinguish a private plane that crashed in "Vnukovo". SOS signal from the ship, entered when the plane was still in the air. Pilots reported the fire engine and fuselage damage.

After a few minutes the plane sat rigidly. Because of the impact he had buckled the chassis and it overturned. Almost immediately he was completely in flames. Rescuers can not begin to extinguish the fire for fear of explosion of the fuel tanks. According to preliminary data, killing all four people on board.

A private plane crashed on the night of Tuesday, October 21, at Moscow's Vnukovo. Killing three crew members and passengers aboard, reports "Interfax" referring to a source at the airport.

Dassault Falcon 50 plane crashed during takeoff. It clarifies the RIA Novosti news agency, the plane flying from Vnukovo-3 in Paris.

Cause of the crash, as a source told "Interfax", was a collision with a snowblower. Source Tass said that the crash occurred in heavy fog. At the same time Lifenews argues that the cause of the accident was a fire in one of the engines.

None of the passengers and crew survived. Airport due to PE closed: on the runway are the wreckage, which was burnt down. Now working at the scene rescue services.

Dassault Falcon 50 - reactive three-motor plane business class long range. He is able to take on board up to nine passengers. The plane was made of the French Dassault Aviation Corporation from 1976 to 2008.

Initial reports are confusing but they say it's a Falcon 50 with 3 crew members and one passenger and they are all dead.

There was heavy fog and the airplane would have hit either a snowplow of a Follow Me car on takeoff.

RT is saying that it was a Falcon 50, but showing a Falcon 900.

It appears that they hit a snowplow on takeoff, managed to get airborne and then crashed while attempting to land.

But then again, it is "appears", so take nothing as firm.

I hope this wasn't a case of foreign language ATC vs. english-only proficient pilots. If LVP was enforced and controllers were talking to ground movement in a different language, SA could be greatly & negatively influenced. Crew might not even know what was/still is/will be on the runway!

Yes this shouldn't have happened, but i stand wishing that we all can one day just speak one language so that all can be understood. Until then, gear up techies! TCAS for ground movement too? If there was such a thing.

Took off from RW06 in a fog.
Hit the snow removal truck.
The reason still unclear, there is no info at the moment, stop the speculations.

It appears that the Falcon involved is 50EX F-GLSA operated by Unijet.
