((Explosives experts have been called in and officials are now questioning airport and airline employees .
ON CAM AT KREMLIN The odds of two jets crashing at the same time are extremely small, leading many here in Russia to believe these crashes were caused by terrorists. But so far, Russia's intelligence agency says it hasn't found any evidence of terrorism at the crash sites.
They are also looking at other possibilities - technical failures, the use of poor quality fuel, and pilot error. Weather conditions are also being considered.
Yet Russian aviation experts say that given the good condition of the planes and the simultaneous timing of the crashes, it's hard to find any cause other than terrorism.

(Nat: Recovery Site)


One of the planes that went down was a small Russian jet flying from Moscow to Vologograd, which crashed in a field about 100 miles south of Moscow.
A second, larger Russian jet, was traveling from Moscow to the southern resort city of Sochi. Officials say that plane issued some kind of distress signal and may have warned of a hijacking on board.

(Nat: DOMODEDOVO AIRPORT) Airline security had already been high because officials feared Chechen rebels might attack before the republic chooses a new governor on Sunday--though the chechens have denied responsibility.
At this early stage of the investigation, much of the information about what could have happened to the two planes is contraditory or unclear. that means it could be some time before officials can say whether this was terrorism--or an incredible case of bad luck . BK, CBS News, Moscow.))
