BANGKOK, May 18 (Itar-Tass) — Russian and Indonesian experts will start deciphering data from the speech recorder of the Sukhoi Superjet 100, which crashed in Indonesia on May 9, on Friday, a representative of the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee said.
“The data deciphering equipment was supplied from Russia yesterday,” he said. “We will be working together with Russian experts and a translator.” The speech recorder’s data is vital for the investigation, he said.
“We cannot guarantee that the work will be done rapidly. Everything will depend on the quality of the data. It took us from five to six hours to decipher a 30-minute recording after a plane crash in Medan in 2005,” he said.
The parametric data recorder of the SSJ100 has not been found so far. The Indonesian media said that the deciphering of speech recorder data might take longer if the parametric data recorder was not found.
Russia’s aircraft crashed during a show flight in Indonesia on May 9. It fell down in an area difficult of access not far from Jakarta, at the altitude of 1.7 kilometers. All the 45 people aboard, including 35 Indonesians, eight Russians, a citizen of France and a citizen of the United States, died in the crash. Fifteen crash victims have been identified by now.
