IRKUTSK, December 28, 19:51 /ITAR-TASS/. Bodies of nine people, who died at the air crash near Irkutsk, have been identified by relatives, the Russian Investigation Committee (SK) reported on Saturday.
The An-12 plane, which transported aviation equipment to Irkutsk from Novosibirsk, crashed on December 26 when it made a landing. Investigators said the plane disappeared from radars one kilometre from the runway. When the plane crashed it touched certain building and was partially destroyed.
“At the moment the bodies of dead people have been identified by relatives, who have been interrogated as victims. Forensic examinations are expected to be conducted,” the SK said.
“Black boxes have been found, examined and submitted to the commission of the Russian Trade and Industry Ministry for further investigation,” the report says.
An investigation group of the Investigative Department for East Siberia continues the investigation of the case, the Russian Investigation Committee said.
The investigation group suppressed flying and technical documents, personal cases and flight books of crewmembers, documents on maintenance of the plane, magnetic records of talks between crewmembers and controllers, as well as medical histories of crewmembers.
Piloting mistake, the failure of the plane and the bad weather conditions are considered key causes of the air crash.
