TOKYO, May 10 (Itar-Tass) — The Indonesian authorities believe all passengers were killed in the crash of a Russian Sukhoi Superjet-100 aircraft, a representative of the national search-and-rescue agency (SAR), Gagah Prakoso, said at a news conference on Thursday.
According to him, no people or dead bodies have been spotted at the site of the crash, however chances to find survivors are small. He said, judging by the wreckage, the impact had been very strong. Participants in the news conference also reported that there had been 47 people on board the plane.
The plane fell off the radar 21 minutes after it took off from Jakarta for a demonstration flight on Wednesday. Its wreckage was spotted on Thursday by a rescue helicopter on a steep cliff of Mount Salak some 64 kilometers south of the Indonesian capital.
