Moscow, Sat, 05 Mar 2011 ANI

Moscow, Mar 5(ANI): At least six people were killed when an Antonov An-148 plane crashed during a test flight in Russia on Saturday.


Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry spokesperson Darya Korovina said that the plane caused no casualties or damage on the ground.


The aircraft, which belonged to Russia's Voronezh Aircraft Production Association, was being tested prior to delivery to Burma.


According to RIA Novosti news agency, at least two of those on board were Burmese nationals.


The An-148 has a maximum of range of 2,100-4,400 kilometers and is able to carry 68-99 passengers, depending on the configuration.


The main advantages of the plane include high fuel-efficiency and ability to operate from unpaved, snowy and poorly-equipped airports due to the plane's high-wing monoplane scheme which protects the engines from foreign objects. (ANI)
