Bodies of 4 Victims of Tu-154 Plane Crash Found Off Sochi : Russian MoD

The bodies of four victims of Russia’s Tu-154 aircraft crash were discovered by rescue workers near Russia's Black Sea resort city of Sochi, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Earlier in the day, a Russian Defense Ministry Tu-154 plane heading from Moscow to Syria with 92 people on board disappeared from radar shortly after refueling and take-off from the Russian southern city of Adler, near Sochi.

Fragments of the plane were discovered 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) from the sea shore of Sochi at a depth of 50-70 meters (164-184 feet).

Most of the passengers were members of the famous army choir of the Russian armed forces, the Alexandrov Ensemble, who were travelling from Moscow to Hmeymim airbase in Syria to take part in a New Year concert.
