Accidents and incidents
On September 7, 2011, the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash occurred which killed nearly the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl KHL hockey team. A Yak-Service Yak-42, carrying the team to a game in Minsk, Belarus crashed on take-off from Tunoshna, killing 44 of the 45 occupants. The plane crashed and broke up approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the end of the runway, at the Volga River. The cause was determined to be pilot error, when one of the two pilots incorrectly applied braking during takeoff, attributed to a lack of training in the aircraft.
