Wreckage of Sukoi Superjet found

Authorities announced this morning that the wreckage of the Sukoi Superjet lost in Indonesia has been found. A rescue team found no survivors at the crash site.

A helicopter spotted debris on the side of the dormant Mount Salak volcano. Photographs from the site seem to indicate that the aircraft impacted the top of an almost vertical wall of rock.

The Superjet 100, with a capacity of 68-103 passengers, is already in service with Russia’s Aeroflot and Armenian carrier Armavia. The aircraft was in the middle of a six-nation Asian sales tour when it was lost.
