MOSCOW, July 4 /TASS/. Experts will start decoding the black boxes (flight recorders) of the Il-76 plane owned by the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations on Tuesday, July 5, a source at the Inter-State Aviation Committee told TASS.
"The flight recorders, which have been delivered to the Inter-State Aviation Committee, are in satisfactory condition. The laboratory is preparing for the work," the source said that the decoding would start on July 5.
"It is still unknown whether the quality of information on the flight recorders is good or not," the source said noting the black boxes had not yet been unsealed.
An Il-76 plane of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations crashed in the Irkutsk region on July 1 while extinguishing the forest fires, which were threatening the populated localities. All the ten crewmen died in the crash.
