MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. Coordination of the final report on the air crash in Vnukovo that killed Total CEO Cristophe de Margerie will be completed soon, the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) said on Monday.
"After all members of the commission sign the report, it will sent to the countries that participated in the investigation," the IAC said.
All sub-commissions and working groups have completed their work, and all necessary information about the crash was collected and analyzed, IAC said. The investigation commission almost finished works on establishing the reasons, circumstances and factors of the air crash, and on developing measures to prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future.
"The commission worked together with a representative of the French Bureau d'Enquetes et d'Analyses pour la securite de l'aviation civile [authority responsible for safety investigations into accidents or incidents in civil aviation] - as the country that designed, manufactured, registered and operated the aircraft; and Dutch Safety Board — as the country that developed the extended system of controlling and managing surface movement [A-SMGCS]," IAC said.
On the night from October 20 to October 21, a Falcon business jet of the French oil corporation Total staked a snowplow during takeoff from Vnukovo, caught fire and crashed on the runway, killing the corporation’s CEO Christophe de Margerie and the three-strong crew of the jet. Russian authorities instituted a criminal case on charges of encroachment on the regulations for safe air traffic and safe aircraft operations.
