The World

A Soviet airliner crashed on a flight from Soviet Central Asia earlier this month, apparently killing all aboard, an official newspaper said. A brief report in the Uzbekistan Communist Party newspaper said the plane went down July 10 on a flight from Karshi to Leningrad. In keeping with Soviet practice, no other details were given. The Soviet airline Aeroflot uses the three-engine Tupolev 154, which carries up to 150 passengers.
