MOSCOW, May 22 (Itar-Tass) — A Russian emergencies ministry’s plane will take the remains of Russians who died in the Sukhoi Superjet 100 crash in Indonesia to Moscow on May 24, a spokesman for the Russian ministry of industry and trade said on Tuesday.
“At 10:00 a.m. local time on May 23, remains of the crash victims will be officially handed over to relatives and representatives from the Russian and the U.S. embassies at Jakarta’s Halim airport. Death certificates from the hospital, certificates of embalming, identification and examination protocols of the eight dead Russians have already been handed over to the Russian diplomatic mission,” the spokesman said.
According to the spokesman, the Russian embassy in Jakarta will soon issue death certificates and accompanying documents. “It is expected that a RA-76840 place of the Russian emergencies ministry with the remains of the Russian citizens will take off from Jakarta on May 24,” the spokesman added.
The Russian Sukhoi Suprejet 100, a regional 100-seat aircraft designed and manufactured by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft with the assistance of Alenia Aermacchi, crashed in Indonesia during a show flight on May 9. It hit a rock slope of Mount Salak on Indonesia’s Java island. All the 45 people who were onboard the plane, including eight Russians, 35 Indonesians, a French citizen and one American, died.
The decoding of the jet’s cockpit voice recorder revealed no signs of failure of the avionic systems. The land crash warning system T2CAS was operational during the flight and provided the crew with the information about a dangerous approach to the ground.
