Russia: Investigators examining plane`s black box
Moscow: Russian air accident investigators say they are examining flight recorder boxes from a plane that crashed this week, killing 43 people and devastating a top ice hockey team.
The Interstate Aviation Committee said on its website on Friday that the magnetic tapes holding the flight information were still wet and that work on deciphering them would begin after they had dried out.
Investigators have not yet been able to pinpoint what caused the Yak-42 jet to crash on Wednesday into the banks of the Volga River shortly after takeoff from Yaroslavl, 150 miles (240 kilometres) northeast of Moscow.
The crash killed 36 hockey players, coaches and staff of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team, that included former NHL players.
Aviation authorities say they will inspect all Yak-42 jets currently in service in Russia.
