JAKARTA: The National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) said that the result of the Sukhoi crash investigation would be announced in October.
The leader of the KNKT team to probe the crash, Mardjono Siswosuwarno, said as quoted by tempo.co that his team was currently working to match data from the flight recorder and cockpit voice recorder.
On May 9, the Russian-made aircraft smashed into Mt. Salak in Bogor, West Java, while on a demonstration flight, generally known in Indonesia as a “joy flight”.
The plane vanished from radar screens before an Air Force helicopter discovered the wreckage the following morning.
Of the 45 passengers, 35 were Indonesians and eight were Russians. A US citizen and a French national were also on board. There were no survivors.
