Days after the Russian Super jet slammed into the steep side of an Indonesian volcano during a demonstration flight, a “Black Box” was found, which will help authorities to investigate the cause of the crash.
The “black box” is the “voice and data recorder” of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 found by Indonesian special force, near the tail of the wrecked plane on Tuesday. The Associated Press reported that official announcement on the said “black box” will be made today by the National Commission on Safety head, Tatang Kurniadi together with his Russian colleagues.
The new Sukhoi Super jet 100 was carrying potential buyers, journalists and representatives of Indonesian airlines. The plane, which was supposed to be on a 50-minute test flight had dropped off from radar screens 21 minutes later near the Salak mountain range in Bogor, a city in West Java province.
All the 45 people and five crews aboard were dead.
