CCTV footage captures moment Russia plane crashed killing 50 people

The moment a plane crashed in Russia killing all 50 people on board has been caught on CCTV.

The footage was taken by a Kazan Airport security camera, and appears to show the moment the plane nosedives and crashes, before exploding on impact.

The Tatarstan Airlines plane was flying in from Moscow on Sunday when it crashed in the city of Kazan while making its second attempt to land, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Kazan is the capital of the Tatarstan republic, about 450 miles east of Moscow.

An investigation is under way into the cause of the crash, although the airline said it was in good technical condition.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that a British woman was killed in the crash.

Donna Bull, 53, who taught at Bellerbys College in Cambridge, had been travelling to Kazan for the start of a 10-day marketing trip.

Ms Bull's partner, Robert Crome, told the BBC: "Donna was a wonderful mother to George and Kate - kind, thoughtful and caring to her family and her many friends.

"She was also a dedicated and hard-working professional, as a teacher and educationalist, so her students will all miss her greatly. Words are inadequate to express our grief and loss."
