PARIS, October 21. /TASS/. All data on Monday's crash of the Falcon 50 business jet at Vnukovo airport in Moscow, which killed the CEO of the French oil corporation Total, Christophe de Margerie, will be reported by the Russian side only, a spokesman for the French bureau for investigation of air accidents said on Tuesday.
"All the data on the air accident at Vnukovo will be reported by the Interstate Aviation committee that is currently doing the investigation," he told TASS.
He recalled the bureau that crashed had provided two technical experts. Escorting them was a representative of Dassault Aviation, the company that manufactured the engines.
As stipulated by international rules, the bureau is participating in the investigation as a representative of the country where the jet that crashed had been registered. Also proceeding from international norms, the manufacturer company (Dassault Aviation) and the operator company (Unijet) have been summoned to assist the investigators, the spokesman for the French bureau said.
The four-seat Falcon 50 business jet bound for Paris crashed at the moment of takeoff at Vnukovo-3 business aviation hub on the night from October 20 to October 21. Its undercarriage staked a snowplowing car that happened to be on the runway.
The jet crashed onto the runway, killing Christophe de Margerie, the only passenger aboard, a flight attendant and two pilots.
