BANGKOK, May 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Flight recorders of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100), which crashed in Indonesia on May 9, have been located.
“The Indonesian National Search and Rescue Agency reported that flight data recorders had been located but not retrieved so far,” Russian embassy press secretary Dmitry Solodov told Itar-Tass.
He said the works would resume at dawn. It is dark on Mount Salak now and the fog is thick, so it would be impossible to do anything right now, the diplomat said.
The flight data recorders were seen on the bottom of a gorge about 500 meters deep, by the cliff the Russian jetliner had hit. The plane’s undercarriage and engine were found in the same gorge earlier.
About 70 rescuers of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry, who came to Indonesia on Saturday aboard two ministry planes, are working jointly with Indonesian colleagues. The planes also transported two light helicopters, Bo-105 and BK-117.
Indonesian authorities formed a commission for the investigating the crash on May 12. The National Transportation Safety Committee is holding the investigation.
The SSJ100 crashed during a show flight on May 9. It had 45 people aboard, among them eight citizens of Russia. Plane fragments were found in the Mount Salak area near Jakarta, at the altitude of 1,500 meters.
