    A military transport plane carrying air force cadets has crashed and burst into flames near a highway in northeastern Ukraine, killing at least 22 people on board

    A military transport plane carrying air force cadets has crashed and burst into flames near a highway in northeastern Ukraine, killing at least 22 people on board


    The Antonov An-26 aircraft crashed while trying to land during a training exercise.

    At least two more people were critically injured.

    Video posted by the Interior Ministry on Facebook showed the plane in flames lying near a road and smoke billowing upwards in the night sky.

    One pilot had reported failure in the left engine of the twin-engined plane but experts say this would not have been a critical situation for an experienced pilot.
