Three dead as airliner makes emergency landing in Ukraine

Three people died when an Antonov AN-24 plane of Ukraine's domestic airlines made an emergency landing Wednesday at the eastern city of Donetsk, police said.

"Three deaths have been tallied," a local police source said, adding that the airliner carrying 36 passengers had wound up in a field 700 metres (yards) from the airport runway.


Ministry spokesman Volodymyr Ovsianik told AFP the number of crew members was unclear.

The Yuzhne Avialinii plane, on a domestic flight from Odessa in the south, overturned in the accident, Ovsianik said.

The Antonov AN-24 is a two-engined 50-capacity propellor plane dating from the Soviet period, with more than 1,000 built between 1959 and 1979.
