Total (France) Chief Dies in Moscow Air Crash...

The boss of oil giant Total was killed in Moscow last night after his private jet crashed into an airport snowplough driven by a man who was 'drunk'.

Christophe de Margerie died instantly at Vnukovo airport along with three crew on board the Falcon 50 in a sudden crash which appears to be an appalling indictment of Russian safety standards.

The Paris-bound jet burst into flames after clipping the snowplough with its front wheel, causing the jet to roll and strike the ground.

The 'intoxicated' driver of the vehicle survived the collision and searching questions were being asked today about why the plane was given the go-ahead to takeoff while it was still on the runway.

Russia's Life News published dramatic footage of the scene after the crash, showing the still-burning wreckage of the jet surrounded by emergency workers. Vnukovo Airport suspended all flights after the incident.

A criminal investigation has been opened by the Investigative Committee, Russia's equivalent of the FBI.

'It has currently been confirmed that the driver of the snowplough was under the influence of alcohol,' said spokesman Vladimir Markin.

'A decision may be made to suspend a number of the airport's personnel during criminal investigations.'

The driver could face up to seven years in a penal colony, Tatiana Morozova of Moscow Interregional Investigative Department of the Russian Transport Investigative Committee told the Rossiya 24 channel.

Russia's deputy transport minister Valery Okulov - formerly Boris Yeltsin's son…
