One of Russia’s richest women killed in German plane crash

Russia's S7 Airlines identified one of the victims as its co-owner Natalia Fileva. The three police officers in the police vehicle suffered serious injuries, DPA reported.

The small six-seater plane they were in crashed into an asparagus field south of the German city of Frankfurt around 3:30 p.m. local time (1330 UTC).

Fileva, whose husband is S7 CEO Vladislav Filev, was listed in 2018 by Forbes magazine as the fourth richest woman in Russian Federation with an estimated fortune of $600 million.

A statement said that the plane was travelling from France to Egelsbach when it went down in a field on the afternoon on March 31.

According to state-owned publication Russia Beyond, she and her husband Vladislav Filev have owned the company since the 1990s.

With a base at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, S7 is part of the Oneworld alliance and flies to 150 destinations in 35 countries, using 56 Airbus planes and 23 aircraft from Boeing.

Natalia Fileva, a co-owner of private Russian airline S7, died in the accident, the company said in a statement. It is an irreparable loss.

In a further tragedy, an emergency carrying two police officers was on the way to the crash scene when it collided with another vehicle.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the flight, which originated in Cannes, France, to crash.

The dpa news agency, citing police, reported that two people died Sunday and three others were seriously hurt when a police vehicle that was responding to the plane crash with flashing lights and sirens was struck head-on by another vehicle several kilometres (miles) from the crash site.

"After impact, the aircraft was completely burnt out", the police statement said, adding that the passengers will probably only be positively identified in the coming week.
