A Russian passenger plane carrying 71 people disappeared off the radar then crashed according to developing reports.

The AN-148 aircraft vanished from radars shortly after takeoff from Domodedovo Airport in Moscow then crashed in near Argunovo village in the Moscow region in Russia leaving no survivors. 

The Emergencies Ministry scrambled crews to the crash site, but according to reports, emergency services could only get there by foot.

The passenger plane, which was on a domestic flight, was operated by Saratov airlines, and had 65 passengers on board, along with six crew members.

According to Skynews: The Flight Radar said it took off at 11.22am (local time) and five minutes later it was tracked descending at 3300 ft per minute before the signal was lost.

Witnesses in the village told local media they saw a burning plane falling from the sky.

It is not immediately clear what caused the crash, with weather conditions and pilot error said to be among the possible reasons.

The Russian-made AN-148 was seven-years-old and was bought by the airline one year ago.
