The Russian Emergency Ministry checked two Boeing-373 aircraft of the Transaero airlines
The Russian Emergency Ministry checked two Boeing-373 aircraft of the Transaero airlines that fly from Moscow to London and said the radioactive background did not exceed the norm. Transaero itself requested the Emergency ministry to check the planes despite an all clear check of one of the jets carried out by police at Heathrow airport in London. “There is one other Russian plane, that we know, that we think we would be interested in”, British Home Secretary John Reid said, evidently referring to the second Transaero Boeing. The Russian Emergencies ministry said “a radioactive examination of two aircraft has been carried out. The check did not expose any excess in the radiation background”. The checks became necessary after British police launched a probe into the death of former Russian spy and defector Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned by radioactive polonium 210. British Airlines said “very low traces” of a radioactive substance had been found on two planes that had flown between Moscow and London, and a third is still in Moscow. British health authorities allowed British Airlines to return one of the checked planes back to service, as the health risk was minimal. The check of the second aircraft continues.
