Emergency service workers investigate the wreckage of the UTair airlines ATR 72 passenger plane that crashed near the Siberian city of Tyumen April 2, 2012. A Russian passenger plane crashed and burst into flames after takeoff in an oil-producing region of Siberia on Monday, killing at least 31 of the 43 people on board, emergency officials said.

 Amazingly, 11 people survived this plane crash in Siberia, though 32 died. 

It reminds me of another plane crash in Kyrgyzstan in which everyone survived, though the plane flipped and caught on fire.
