Moscow - All 71 people aboard a Saratov Airlines flight died when the plane crashed southeast of Moscow on Sunday, Russian state news agency Tass reported.

Those on board included 65 passengers and six crew members, the Russian news agency Interfax said. Three children -- ages 5, 13 and 17 -- were among the passengers, state news agency RIA reported.

The Antonov-148 aircraft disappeared from the radar shortly after takeoff from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport and crashed soon afterward, Tass reported. It was headed to the Russian city of Orsk, near the border with Kazakhstan.
