This is the second recent crash of this aircraft. On 10 August 2014 one broke up and burst into flames on takeoff in Tehran, also with 48 passengers on board - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonov_An-140 . Always sad to hear about the loss of life of so many. May they rest in peace.

Er, Jim. Today is August 10, 2014...

 

Curiously, that news article referred to this turboprop aircraft as a "jet." This Ukrainian designed turboprop is assembled in Iran by HESA (Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Company). Three of the reported "engine failure" accidents were determined to be caused by a defective fuel control unit.

 

In any event, my sincere condolences and prayers are extended to all of those who lost loved ones in this tragedy.

Thanks Bill.
