A corporate jet carrying a crew of three but no passengers crashed while taking off from Moscow's Vnukovo airport, injuring two people, Russian aviation officials and the plane's owner said. The plane, a twin-engine Challenger 850, crashed Tuesday after a fire broke out on board as it took off in a snowstorm on a flight to Berlin, Transport Ministry spokesman Timur Khikmatov said. The plane's operator, Moscow-based Fort Aero, said there were three crew members on board, and that two were hospitalized. A Fort Aero spokeswoman, who declined to give her name, would not reveal the nationality of the crew members. Airport spokesman Konstantin Konanykhin said two of the crewmen suffered minor burns and bruises and that all three were hospitalized.
