Russia plane crash video: A Russian military transport aircraft with three people onboard crashed on Tuesday. According to reports, the prototype Ilyushin Il-112V was on test flight when it crashed. A video of the horrific crash is being circulated widely on social media.
The mobile video shows the aircraft flying at low altitude with at least one of the engines on fire. With one of the wings on fire, the plane tries to make a go around and it suddenly takes sharp turn. The aircraft then suddenly nosedives to the ground resulting in a huge blast.
Thick black smokes could be seen rising from the crash site in the video.
According to reports, Ilyushin Il-112V is being developed by United Aircraft Corporation. The company plans to replace the ageing Antonov An-26 with Il-112V.
