MOSCOW, May 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The operative staff has no information about possible whereabouts of flight data recorders of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100), which crashed in Indonesia on May 9, the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) told Itar-Tass.
“Flight data recorders have not been found, and the operative staff is unaware of their possible whereabouts,” it said. “We may presume that the recorders may be found in the gorge, but no one has actually seen them.”
Russian embassy press secretary Dmitry Solodov told Itar-Tass a short time ago that the Indonesian National Search and Rescue Agency reported the flight data recorders had been located but not retrieved so far.
In his words, 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.
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.
