I get the impression that this was not the third fatal crash in one year, but the third crash in two years. An An-28 crashed on 3 April 2008 killing 19, and another on 15 Oct 2009 without fatalities, according to Aviation Safety Network.

Either way, makes you think this airline could be one to avoid.

I stand corrected, it is indeed 2 years, bad enough as it is.....

Press in Holland reports the crash occurred through engine fire resulting in "explosion" , no sources given. The bodies have been recovered now.
