Director of Search and Rescue, said the country Idonesia Daryatmo for up to 12-5, rescuers have not found the black box of the SSJ-100.

The investigators are anxiously looking for the black box to answer key questions: why an experienced pilot would lower the altitude of 1,800 m to 3,000 m down and then crashed into a high mountain Salak approximately 2,200 m?

Among the conjecture, in addition to the causes of bad weather, pilot error, errors in the stage of flight organization, people are talking much about the intimate atmosphere on the flight performance. During this flight, the pilots often sudden increase height limits and fly close to the current regulations to the flexibility of the aircraft.
