IRKUTSK, July 3. /TASS/. Rescuers have found body fragments of the crew and one flight recorder at the Il-76 crash site in Irkutsk region, the rescuers told TASS on Sunday.
"During the search at the crash site in the Irkutsk region, the rescuers found body fragments of the victims and one of the two flight recorders," the source said.
The search is under way.
"Judging from the scale of crash, all the ten people of the crew have died," the source said.
For the moment rescuers have found four bodies.
Earlier on Sunday, reports said rescuers found the missing fire-fighting Il-76 plane four kilometers south of the Rybny Yan settlement on the slope of a hill.
On July1, the Il-76 plane did not go on the air for a radio contact at a due time. The communication was lost as the plane was at the height of 3,000 meters. The plane was equipped with an airborne spray tank for fighting wildfires in the Irkutsk region. On board the plane was only the crew of 10 people.
