Flight Recorders found on Antonov 22 crash site
Burning remains of the Russian Air Force An-22 transport plane that went down Tuesday night have been spotted from the air in the Tula Region south of Moscow.
The Russian Air Force Commander-in-Chief has ordered suspension of flights by the An-22 and Tu-95 MS military aircraft due to yesterdayâ€™s crash of an An-22 military cargo plane in the Tula Region and the need to investigate the cause and circumstances of the accident.
The Tu-95 MS strategic bombers have been grounded for the reason that they are powered by the same engines as the An-22 cargo planes.
According to a spokesman for the Air Force, all possible leads on the crash are now being followed up.
