The death toll has risen to five following Saturday’s crash at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport.
The Tupolev-204, operated by low-cost Russian carrier Red Wings, was carrying 8 people – all crew.
The accident happened when the plane skidded off the runway as it tried to land.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has, in the past, blamed poor air safety on the large number of domestic carriers.
Some people are fed up, like Moscow resident Olga who blamed the crash on a general fall in quality and standards in Russia.
“It happens very often, too often. I think that everything is going down in our country, everything is going down, including the aircraft industry,” she said, standing next to the flowers left by the crash site.
Medvedev has ordered a special investigation into the accident and authorities say they are looking into weather conditions, human error and a possible technical fault.
A Tupolev-204 overshot the runway last week at Novosibirsk Airport in Siberia.
There have been problems with this models reverse mechanism, needed to stop the plane when it lands, however none of the incidents has been fatal.
Early speculation in the Russian press has pointed to possible brake failure, however authorities say the recovered black boxes will have to be studied before any conclusions can be made.
Saturday’s crash saw the plane split into three pieces, with the wings torn from the fuselage. Parts of the wreckage caught fire and other parts ended up on the Kiev highway.

Rescue services were quickly on the scene but passersby also tried to help survivors who were badly injured. Two of the wounded are described as being in a critical condition.
Russia’s poor air safety record may come under the spotlight more as the country prepares to host the Winter Olympics in 2014 and football’s World Cup in 2018.
