Russians Mourn the Victims Outside the Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, Where the Plane Was Supposed to Land

The final moments of the Russian jet that crashed in the Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 passengers and crew members on board has been revealed.  The Airbus A321 took off from the Egyptian resort town Sharm El Sheikh and the tail blew off only 23 minutes later.

The plane lurched up and down in the air, climbing and falling 3,000 feet rapidly, before it plunged 31,000 feet down and crashed.  Passengers were sucked out of their seats through the hole opened up when the tail blew off.  ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the plane was shot down. However, doubt has been cast as to whether or not the group has the weapons necessary, with some experts claiming a bomb on board is more likely.
