YEKATERINBURG, June 10 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Interstate Aviation Committee (MAK) received the official resolutions from France and Great Britain that are related with the crash of an airplane ATR-72 in Tyumen over a year ago. Over 30 people were killed in this aircrash.
The specialists of the committee are examining the remarking conclusions of their French and British partners, chairman of the MAK committee for the investigation of air crashes Alexei Morozov told Itar-Tass on Monday. After that a final report will be made and will be submitted to the investigating bodies.
“I cannot name the subject of the remarks. They are purely official and are not subject to disclosure,” Morozov noted.
In early March MAK submitted the conclusions of the committee over the crash of the airplane ATR-72 to French developers of the airplane and the owners of the aircraft in the Bermudas, the British overseas territory.
“After we studied the remarks of foreign specialists, scientific grounds for the crash of the airplane will be submitted to the detectives,” Morozov explained.
On April 2, 2012, the airplane ATR-72-200 of the air company UTair, which was en route from Tyumen to Surgut, fell down after the takeoff 40 kilometres away from the airport. The airplane was carrying 43 people, including 39 passengers and four crewmembers. 31 people died in the air crash.
