Russian Flight Attendant Falls Just Short of the Finish Line

A body of a man in a flight uniform shirt, reportedly a member of the crew, lies at the crash site of Russian Tupolev Tu-154 plane near the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, about 400 miles (640 kilometers) east of Kiev, Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2006. A Russian passenger jet crashed Tuesday into a Ukrainian field during a severe thunderstorm, killing all 170 people aboard. The plane was flying to St. Petersburg from the Russian Black Sea resort of Anapa _ a holiday destination popular with families, flying over Ukraine when it ran into trouble.
