In the late hours of July 2nd, a Russian Tu-154 airliner of the Bashkirian Airlines collided with the DHL's Boeing-757 cargo aircraft at an 11,000-meter altitude near the Bodensee.
There were 12 crewmen and 57 passengers /52 children and 5 adults accompanying them in a vacation/ on-board the Tu-154. The Boeing was piloted by two crewmen alone. No one survived.
