7.09.2011 (in english)

The Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash occurred on Wednesday, 7 September 2011 at 16:02 local time, when a Yak-Service Yakovlev Yak-42 passenger aircraft, carrying the professional ice hockey team and coaching staff of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), crashed near Yaroslavl, Russia. The team was on its way to Minsk, Belarus, in order to start the 2011–12 KHL season. All players from the main roster plus four from the farm team were on board the aircraft, which struck a tower mast, caught fire and crashed shortly after take-off, 2.5 km (1.6 mi) from Tunoshna Airport. Preliminary reports say that all but two people (one player and one crew member) who were on board are confirmed dead.
René Fasel, president of the International Ice Hockey Federation, called the crash "the darkest day in the history of our sport."

I still can't believe my ears. R.I.P. (rest in peace)
