The crash was caught on video as the plane failed moments after taking off from the airport in Naryan-Mar.

It rolled before diving towards the ground.

'Two people were killed and others are in hospital. 

'The tragedy occurred during takeoff.'

Later reports said four had died.

Two women and a five year old child were among the dead, according to reports.

The plane had been in service since the end of 2016. 

The main cause of the emergency was a technical malfunction that occurred during the initial climbing.

The plane appeared to spiral downwards.

Pictures from the ground show damage to the cabin with a detached wing. 

The crew 'could not cope' with the emergency', it was reported. 

The 40 year old pilot was experienced in Arctic aviation.

Seems like icing on the wings could be to blame. Hope it was properly de-iced. Wonder what the technical malfunction was. RIP

Very sad & it's even sadder this time of the year with Christmas so close. May the deceased "Rest in Peace".
