A 29-year-old air stewardess was killed when the plane she was working on 'broke up in the sky' just minutes after it took from Moscow.

Flight crew member Anastasia Slavinskaya was on the Antonov An-148 when it came down near the village of Argunovo, south east of the capital.

Her colleague, second pilot Sergey Gambaryan, 34, has also been named as one of the victims killed in the horror crash.

All 71 people on board the plane died and a source from Russia's emergency services said the 65 passengers and six crew members had 'no chance' of survival. 

Shocked witnesses reportedly saw a burning aircraft falling from the sky and wreckage was spread over a large snow-covered field.

Flightradar24 tweeted that the aircraft was descending at 22,000ft per minute and chilling video footage shows debris 25 miles from the airport.
