Russian plane crashes in Siberia shortly after take-off

A Russian passenger jet, ATR-72 turbo-prop aircraft, carrying at least 40 people has crashed shortly after take-off early Monday morning in Russia's Tyumen region.

The aircraft had just left Tyumen, that's 30 kilometers from the city, when it crashed and burst into flames and broke into pieces upon impact. 

Unconfirmed reports claimed twelve survivors in the tragedy and have sustained serious injuries and burns.

The ATR-72 is a passenger twin-engine turboprop short-haul regional airliner. The airplane is designed for the medium-distance transport of up to 78 passengers in a single-class configuration, and is steered by two pilots.
