They have not confirmed who was on the plane and who wasn't.

From what Dmitry Chesnokov is speculating, the entire team might not been traveling.

Everyone on Twitter is saying that most of the team was on the plane.Not looking good.

number of survivors brought up to 3...

Hoping for the best...

Russian TV is still saying only 1, I hope the number keeps climbing though.

You're right, again, number back down to 1, who's in critical condition.

Has an image of the wreckage.

Obviously anything can happen in a crash, but it looks like it may have went down on its side...

Apparently from some articles I have been reading, it caught fire shortly after takeoff and then crashed not far from the runway.

I'm not sure what I'm seeing on TV. I see video of lots of rescue personnel speeding to the hospital. I hope it means that there is more than 1 crew member who survived.

I am pretty sure its a well known fact these days, but still if anyone ever mentions about travelling to Russia i always bring it up.

I have a friend who is a comercial airline pilot and she has told me a few stories.

This is so sad.
