UPDATED. A Russian airliner with 46 people on board disappeared from radar screens and crasched on Wednesday as it was participating in an air show south of Jakarta, Indonesia. A search team has found parts of the aircraft.

The plane, a Suchoj Superjet 100, is the first Russian-built aircraft after the Soviet-era. A competitor to Canada’s Bombardier and Brazil’s Embraer, made its first flight in 2008 and carries between 78 and 98 passengers.

A sales team from Suchoj is believed to have been killed in the crash.
