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.

What an incredibly terrible off season for hockey. Lokomotiv is my second favorite KHL team :( this crap has to end. Can't this bad steak go plague bowling or cricket or something.

God look at how that thing went down on its side... Gary Bettman with a stinger missile I bet...

R.i.p everyone in the crash. Best of luck to your families, you hockey club and your fans.

Google news searched for "Александр Васюнов" (Alexander Vasyunov).

Can't believe this. He was a nice kid, so excited when he came to Low Hell in 2008...

When you have burns on over half of your body, the outcome is pretty grim.
