BANGKOK, May 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Rescuers have found a flight recorder from the Russian Sukhoi Superjet that crashed in Indonesia, the head of the Jakarta administration of Indonesia’s national rescue agency said on Tuesday.
The flight recorder was found some 100 meters from the place where a fragment of the plane’s tail section was found.
Russia’s Sukhoi Superjet 100 airliner crashed during a demonstration flight on May 9. According to available information, there were 45 people on board, including eight Russians, as well as citizens of Indonesia, Italy, France and the United States. The crash site was spotted the next day not far from the capital of Indonesia, in rough terrain on a slope of Mount Salak at an altitude of 1.7 kilometres.
On May 12, Russian rescuers joined the rescue operation. Specialists from the Tsentrospas and the Leader rescue centres, as well as emergency and medical-psychological groups arrived in Indonesia by two planes. Apart from that, the same planes brought two light helicopters, the Bo-105 and BK-117.
