Both cockpit voice and flight data recorders have been found on the site of the Mi-8 helicopter’s crash in the Komi Republic
Both cockpit voice and flight data recorders have been found on the site of the Mi-8 helicopter’s crash in the Komi Republic, an aide to the republic’s prosecutor, Yuri Knyazev said, adding that the flight data recorder was spotted and picked up earlier on Monday. The container with taped verbal exchanges among crew members and air traffic control services was found on Sunday. “The latter has been brought to Vuktyl airport, where a government commission and a team of investigators are proceeding with their inquiries,” Yuri Knyazev said. “The voice recorder was damaged. It lacked a fragment of a reel. It lay separately and specialists are now to decide whether the recorded messages can be interpreted. The other black box – the flight data recorder – is absolutely intact,” the prosecutor said. The investigators are in the process of gathering the necessary information for a subsequent aviation and technical inquiry. “The area where the helicopter’s debris lie is being mapped. Technical documents and flight records have been collected and the air traffic controller and other witnesses are being questioned,” Knyazev said. “The investigation is probing into all possible versions. As usual, three main scenarios are considered – the human factor, the aircraft’s condition and weather conditions.” In the meantime in Ukhta, where the bodies of the bodies had been delivered, forensic examinations have been ordered for identifying the victims. The Mi-8 helicopter that carried a group of Severgazprom specialists to a gas pipeline ecological control checkpoint went missing over a mountainous area on March 21. The helicopter’s debris and the bodies of six victims were found on Friday, March 23 after prolonged air reconnaissance. The helicopter’s fuselage had fallen apart and its fragments were scattered over an area of 150 meters. The Vuktyl prosecutor’s office has opened a criminal case under the Criminal Code’s article “violation of traffic safety in running railway, air and water transport.”
