Emergency workers carry a stretcher with a body near the wreckage of a Tu-134 plane, belonging to the RusAir airline, near the city of Petrozavodsk Tuesday, June 21, 2011. A Russian airliner crashed in heavy fog and burst into flames just short of a runway in northwestern Russia, killing 44 people, officials said. Eight people survived, dragged from the burning wreckage by locals. The RusAir Tu-134 plane had taken off from Moscow and was moments from landing at the Petrozavodsk airport when it slammed into a nearby highway just before midnight Monday, Emergencies Ministry spokeswoman Oksana Semyonova told The Associated Press.
