Here's what witnesses told Russian media after Wednesday's plane crash

Several residents who lived near the crash site have been speaking to Russian media about what they saw.

One man told RIA Novosti he heard two bangs in the sky before the plane started to fall. A woman from the village of Kuzhenkino in the Tver region told RIA Novosti that around 7 p.m. on Wednesday, she heard the sound of an airplane near her house, which is located 300 meters (984 feet) from the place where the tail part of the Embraer is now lying 

Then came something like a bang, like a shot. Then suddenly an explosion, I look up and heard a sound above me - it was like pops, like several explosions,” she said. “The plane started to swerve. Then a plume of smoke emerged and the plane began to descend, to dive."

Lyudmila Osypova, another Kuzhenkino resident, said she did not see the moment the plane hit the ground, but saw the black cloud of smoke after being told of the incident by her neighbor.

Osypova said her neighbor called the ordeal "terrifying."

"There was a loud bang, then she (Osypova's neighbor) turned her head to look and the whole plane was in sparkles of fire, it was all lit up. Said they saw it caught fire and began to fall,” Osypova said her neighbor recounted.
