MOSCOW, April 3 (Itar-Tass) — Experts of Russian Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) have got down to the deciphering of the data began of the “black boxes” from the ATR-72 airliner that crashed outside Tyumen on April 2, the IAC said in a statement on Tuesday.
Two flight recorders – the parametrical and sound - were taken to the IAC Scientific and Technical Centre in Moscow late on April 2. Experts have now found that the records of the plane take-off parameters, the work of its systems and radio communication of the crew are safe.
“The recorders’ information is being deciphered and analysed,” the MAC stressed.
The ATR-72 plane of the UTair airline crashed on Monday morning, shortly after takeoff from Tyumen’s Roshchino airport. A total of 32 people were killed in the crash, 12 passengers survived. Spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee (SK) Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass earlier that “malfunction and pilot’s error are considered as priority versions.” Thus, investigators have no reasons so far to believe that weather conditions could have caused the crash.
April 4-6 have been declared days of mourning in Yugra.
