Transportation and Secret Police

Moving on to the international beat.  Word is in of an airline crash in Russia.
A Boeing 737 jetliner crashed and burst into flames Sunday night while trying to land at the airport in the Russian city of Kazan, killing all 50 people aboard in the latest in a string of deadly crashes across the country.

The Tatarstan Airlines plane was trying to make a second landing attempt when it touched the surface of the runway near the control tower, and was "destroyed and caught fire," said Sergei Izvolky, the spokesman for the Russian aviation agency.
Hmmm.  Touched the surface and caught fire.  Destroyed.
The ministry released a list of the dead, which included Irek Minnikhanov, the son of Tatarstan's governor, and Alexander Antonov, who headed the Tatarstan branch of the Federal Security Service, the main successor agency to the Soviet-era KGB.
Why do I have some questions swirling around?  Those in the FSB don't die in their sleep, not in Russia.

Just food for idle speculation on this Sunday.
