The Boeing 737 crashed near Kazan, Russia en route to the airport, killing all 50 people aboard. The plane belonged to Tatarstan Airlines and crashed Sunday night.

RT reports that the cause of the crash is unknown, but given the extreme angle that the plane crashes at, virtually a nose dive, it seems probable that it was not pilot error and likely a major malfunction.
