Russian Missing Plane Found in Indonesian Mountains
The place of the plane's crush with some small fragments

The wreckage of Russia’s missing Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) has been found at Mount Salak, Indonesia. According to the first photos of the wreck place, the jet crashed to a vertical slope of the mountain.

      On Wednesday, the jet disappeared from radar screens while making a demonstration flight near Jakarta, with 48 people on board. 8 of them were Russian constructors and engineers, the others were foreign specialists and press. 

      The radio contact with the jet was lost shortly after the pilots had requested permission to descend from 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) to 6,000 feet (1,800 meters), according to air traffic controllers.

      A search operation is underway. Indonesian specialists are now waiting for better weather conditions to start the rescue operation in full. Now it is too cloudy in the mountain's area, and it also was cloudy during the crush. 

      The SSJ 100 arrived in Jakarta as part of a demonstration tour of six Asian countries. Previously, it had visited Myanmar, Pakistan and Kazakhstan, and was also going to visit Laos and Vietnam after Indonesia.
