A Russian passenger plane crashed near Moscow soon after takeoff Sunday, killing all 71 people on board, and investigators said they were looking at all possible causes.Temperatures were around minus-5 degrees Celsius with periodic snowfall when the short-haul, twin-engine Antonov AN-148 operated by Saratov Airlines took off for the city of Orsk in Orenburg region, 1,500 kilometers southeast of Moscow. Fragments from plane were found in the Ramenskoye area, about 40 kilometers from the airport. State news agency TASS said the plane, which had been flying since 2010, had been out of service for two years because of a shortage of parts.In March 2016, a Boeing 737-800 flown by FlyDubai crashed while landing at Rostov-on-Don, killing all 62 people aboard.
