Russia Claims Flight Recorders Show Crashed Russian Jet Not Struck from Outside
Analysis of the black box of the Russian plane that crashed in Egypt has revealed that the plane was not struck from the outside and the pilot did not make a distress call before it disappeared from radar.
Quoting a source in the committee analyzing the flight recorders, news agency Reuters reported this on Monday.
 
The comments by the source were based on the preliminary examination of the black boxes recovered from the Airbus A321 which crashed in the Sinai Peninsula on Saturday killing all 224 people on board. However the source reportedly did not elaborate further on the issue.
 
However a source within the civil aviation department claimed that the Russian and French experts had not yet finished examining the black boxes.  
 
It is most likely that the Russian plane had broke up in mid-air, said Russian officials however claiming that it was too early to say what caused it to crash. The Russian airliner was carrying holidaymakers from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg.
 
The grieving Russians left piles of flowers upon the arrival, on board a Russian government plane, of the first bodies recovered from the wreckage to St Petersburg's Pulkovo Airport. The bodies were kept at the St Petersburg morgue, to be identified.
 
The special plane carried 144 bodies and a second government plane was due to leave Cairo on Monday evening, said Russian news agencies.
 
Russian President Vladimir Putin termed the crash as a great tragedy on Monday after he had declared Sunday a national day of mourning
 
"Without any doubt everything should be done so that an objective picture of what happened is created. So that we know what happened," Putin said in comments cited by ITAR-TASS.
 
Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said no theory could yet be ruled out when asked if a terrorist attack could be to blame for the crash.
 
On Saturday, claim for the crash was made and Egyptian militant group affiliated with Islamic State and it claimed that the Russian plane was brought down "in response to Russian air strikes that killed hundreds of Muslims on Syrian land".
However this claim was dismissed to be inaccurate by Russia's transport minister.
 
Only a "technical or physical action" could have caused the aircraft to break up in the air, said Alexander Smirnov, deputy general director of airline Kogalymavia, which operated the plane under the brand name Metrojet.
 
"The plane was in excellent condition. We rule out a technical fault and any mistake by the crew," Smirnov told a news conference in Moscow. A Russian inspection of the plane’s fuel found that it met requirements and there are growing evidences that the plane and its crew had passed the necessary safety and medical tests.
 
While a previous tail strike had been fully repaired both engines were inspected in Moscow on Oct. 26 and no problems were found and would not have affected safety, the airline has said. The aircraft is registered in Ireland and had received a certificate of airworthiness earlier this year from regulators in Ireland.
 
Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, launched air raids against opposition groups in Syria including Islamic State on September 30.
