Armenian airliner that crashed into the Black Sea off Russia's coast early last month disintegrated after hitting the water
An Armenian airliner that crashed into the Black Sea off Russia's coast early last month disintegrated after hitting the water, the Transportation Ministry said Monday. The Airbus came down in stormy weather on May 3 with the loss of all 113 passengers and crew. "The flight recorders from the Armavia Airlines A-320 have shown that the plane did not disintegrate in the air," a ministry's statement said. "The engines were operating until the plane hit the water." "The plane had enough fuel to complete the flight safely and the autopilot was off in the last minute," the ministry said. The emergency commission has started decoding and analyzing flight data recorders, which include modeling the flight on an A-320 trainer. The commission will conclude on the reasons behind the crash and make flight safety recommendations, the ministry said.
