Jet crashes at Moscow airport, no passengers aboard

A jet carrying three crew members but no passengers crashed at Moscow's Vnukovo airport on Tuesday, emergency and aviation officials said. An aviation official said the crew survived.

The plane crashed upon takeoff in a snowstorm on a flight from Moscow to Berlin, an Emergency Situations Ministry spokeswoman said. She said it was an Airbus A-310, but a spokesman for Russia's Air Navigation Service, Andrei Pryanishnikov, said it was a smaller, American-made plane possibly a corporate jet, reports AP.

He said all three people on board survived.

The plane overturned while taking off and caught fire, air traffic controller Konstantin Fyodorov said on state-run television.

The Basmanny Court of Moscow arrested Michael Calvey, the founder of Baring Vostok investment fund, on allegations of embezzling 2.5 billion rubles from Vostochny Bank. Calvey will be held in custody until April 13
