A plane crash is the worst nightmare of aviation stakeholders – airlines and passengers alike. It was a sad Saturday for the aviation industry as a Russian airliner crashed in central Sinai killing all 224 people on board as Egyptian officials have revealed. 214 of the passengers were Russian and three Ukrainian, 138 of them women and 17 children aged between 2 and 17. Most were tourists. There were seven crew members on board.
A passenger list released showed that 10 of those on board were under the age of 10, with one only 10 months old.
The Airbus A-321 had just left the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, bound for the Russian city of St Petersburg.

Wreckage of the crash was found in the Hasana area and bodies removed, along with the plane’s “black box”. An official described a “tragic scene” with bodies of victims still strapped to seats.
While Russian strongman and President, Vladimir Putin declared Sunday a day of mourning, he has immediately ordered an official investigation into the crash, and for rescue teams to be sent to the crash site.
Egyptian officials investigating the scene said there were no survivors.
Aviation official Ayman al-Mukadem said the pilot had reported technical difficulties before the plane went missing, the Associated Press reported.
Local weather observations in the vicinity of the rescue scene suggest relatively benign conditions.
