BANGKOK, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — The search operation on the site of Russia’s Sukhoi Superjet 100 crash in Indonesia has been completed, although no parametric flight data recorder was found, Madja Daryatmo, the head of the Indonesian National Search and Rescue Agency, said on Monday.
“We failed to find anything important during three days added to the search operation, although we expanded the search area,” he said.
The operation to evacuate bodies of the plane crash victims was completed on May 18. On Sunday Indonesia’s police informed that it had identified 45 crash victims.
