Flight Recorders Badly Damaged In Russia Plane Crash

Russia’s airline regulator said on Sunday in Moscow that the flight recorders from a passenger jet which crashed in southern Russia killing all 62 people on board are badly damaged and could take up to a month to decode.

It said the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, operated by Dubai-based budget carrier Flydubai, crashed on its second attempt to land at Russia’s Rostov-on-Don airport in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“Most of those on board were Russian.
“The received recorders are badly damaged mechanically and it can take one month to decode information from the recorders,”it said.

The Russia’s Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) said in a statement that specialists have started the inspection, opening and removing the memory modules from their protective coverings for further work to restore the cable connections and prepare to copy the data.

It said under international aviation rules, the investigation would be led by Russia’s Air Safety Investigation Agency with representatives from the U.S. where the jet was made, and the United Arab Emirates, where the airline is based.

Ghaith al-Ghaith, Flydubai’s CEO, said at a news conference in Dubai on Sunday that the company have high confidence in the Russian authorities who are capable of managing local conditions for flights.

“We fully trust the Russian authorities in this.

The airport was open. It was good enough to operate and good enough to land, as per the authorities,’’he said. (Reuters/NAN)
