MOSCOW, July 4 /TASS/. Experts of the Inter-State Aviation Committee have started decoding the flight recorders of a crashed Il-76 plane owned by the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations (a day earlier than initially planned), the Inter-State Aviation Committee reported on its website on Monday.
"The committee experts are decoding the data and analyzing the crew’s negotiations and parametric information," the report said.
The magnetic tape of the Mars cockpit voice recorder is in satisfactory condition, the Inter-State Aviation Committee said. "The data has been successfully copied from the flight recorders. The preliminary analysis has revealed that it contains information about the air incident," the Inter-State Aviation Committee said.
A commission investigating the air crash is working at the crash site. It is collecting and processing radiological, meteorological and satellite information, the Inter-State Aviation Committee said.
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.
