Russian crashed plane’s first black box recovered
BBC – The flight data recorder of the Russian military airliner which crashed in the Black Sea on Sunday has been recovered and brought to Moscow.
The Tu-154 jet came down with the loss of all 92 passengers and crew. At least 12 bodies have been recovered so far.
It was carrying artistes due to give a concert for Russian troops in Syria, and journalists and military personnel.
The cause of the disaster is still being investigated but there is no suggestion of a terror attack.
Numerous fragments of the plane have been found, including the plane’s chassis and one of its engines, Russia’s defence ministry said.
