MOSCOW, May 9 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s plane Sukhoi Superjet 100 disappeared from radars during its demonstration flight in Jakarta, Indonesia, a source in the Russian United Aircraft Building Corporation told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The plane disappeared from radars’ screens during its second demonstration flight on this day,” the source said.
There were 36 foreign passengers and a crew of eight Russian citizens.
The plane started its roadshow “Welcome Asia!” in the countries of Central and Southeast Asia. It has already made demonstration flights in Kazakhstan, Pakistan and Myanmar. It should fly to Laos and Vietnam.
Russia creates a crisis group to clear up the situation with the Sukhoi Superjet 100 that disappeared from radars during its demonstration flight in Jakarta, press officer of the Russian embassy in Indonesia, Dmitry Solodov, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The local authorities and officials of the diplomatic mission keep a close watch on how the situation develops. The crisis group tries to clear up the circumstances and reasons of what had happened,” he said.
