Tu-154 Plane Wreckage Handed Over To Government Commission

A source in the State Civil Aviation Service has said that all the discovered fragments of the wreckage of the TU-154 plane, which crashed yesterday, will be delivered to Sochi for inspection by a government commission. Its members are expected to arrive in the Black Sea city this evening. Ten ships are currently involved in the search for fragments of the plane: five from Sochi, two high-speed launches, two Emergencies Ministry vessels and a warship. This morning the 14th body was discovered and delivered to Sochi, in accordance with an already established procedure. The commission will already be able to see part of the nose section, documents and a letter belonging to the co-pilot and a fragments of the interior. The source explained that the black boxes had most likely sunk along with the rest of the plane. "It will be practically impossible to find them at a depth of 1-2km," he said. The Rostov regional prosecutor has opened a criminal case into the loss of the airliner and the passengers and has confiscated tapes between the ground-crew and pilots. The source said that then main versions behind the loss of the plane are: a terrorist attack; a mechanical failure; or that the plane was hit by an out-of-control Ukrainian missile fired during a training exercise.
