Scomparso Sukhoi SuperJet-100 - 44 passeggeri a bordo

Russia’s latest civil airliner carrying 44 passengers has disappeared from the radars during a demonstrative flight in the Indonesian capital. Hijacking and a high-altitude crash into a mountain have not been ruled out.

The aircraft did not return to the airport at the scheduled time following takeoff. By that time, the fuel should have been totally spent.

Shortly before going off the radar, the crew of the aircraft had asked for permission to descend, Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency quotes an Indonesian aviation official as saying.

It got permission to descend from an altitude of 10,000 feet down to 6,000, moving downwards in a rightward direction. According to the official, there is a 6,200 foot-high mountain in the area where the plane went missing.

However, Indonesian aviation authorities haven’t ruled out that the aircraft was hijacked.

There were 44 people onboard, including 8 Russians and 36 citizens from other countries – mostly representatives from major airline companies.

The aircraft was operated by a Russian crew.

Recent messages on Twitter posted by blogger and traveler Sergey Dolya give the names of the crew members. The plane was operated by senior test-pilot Aleksandr Yablontsev and co-pilot Aleksandr Kochetkov.

RIA Novosti also released the names of six other Russian nationals. Aero navigator Oleg Shvetsov, flight engineer Aleksey Kirkin, leading test flight engineer Dennis Rakhmanov, test flight deputy head Nikolay Martyshenko, “Sukhoi” company Sales Director Evgeny Grebenshchikov, and contract manager Kristina Kurzhukova were all reportedly on board.

The latest reports suggest none of those onboard can be reached by telephone.

The Russian aircraft arrived in Indonesia on May 9 – the fourth stop on its Asian demonstrative tour, which includes six countries in total. The plane had previously visited Myanmar, Pakistan and Kazakhstan. After Jakarta it was supposed to go to two more Asian countries – Laos and Vietnam.

The aircraft has already made two half-hour long demonstrative flights in Jakarta. The first time it took to the skies, flight attendants from the Sky Aviation airliner, representatives from “VEB-Leasing” company, and others from a Russian insurance agency were on board. During its second flight, the aircraft took the potential buyers– representatives from Indonesia’s Batavia, Pelita, Air Aviastar, and Sriwijaya Air.

We will bring you more details as soon as the information comes in.

come si sospettava l'aereo è caduto sul fianco del vulcano.

 

:(

 

Oltre all'ovvia tragicità umana della cosa, sono dispiaciuto perchè questa temo sia una mazzata per l'immagine della Sukhoy/alenia nel campo dei liner...

Io sono sempre stato un sostenitore di questo Liner che si apprestava a combattere il duopolio mondiale Airbus/boeing. (c'è una discussione apposita per questo comunque).

 

Attendiamo notizie per capire le cause. Si parla di dirottamento (????? addirittura)

Beh, dirottamento non credo... Di solito il dirottamento viene attuato quando c'è da colpire lo Stato, il Governo. I Terroristi non si svegliano una mattina, e pensano al fatto di dirottare un Sukhoi. Penso che ci debba essere un piano montato sopra per agire con un dirottamento. Certo, in effetti, sul Sukhoi c'erano giornalisti, personaggi di vita politica e chi più ne ha più ne metta, ma comunque non penso che sia stato un dirottamento. Le cause sono ancora incerte, non penso che mai si potrà dare una risposta definitiva. :o

Le scatole nere sono state recuperate, quindi sulle cause del disastro sapremo qualcosa a breve, o almeno spero vista la tendenza russa a insabbiare tutto.

Sicuramente si cercherà di dare la colpa al pilota o a un errore umano, visto che la pubblicità negativa in caso di guasto meccanico sarebbe una mazzata per sukhoi.

Spero che comunque si riuscirà a "spillare" qualche informazione ai Russi. Poi si sa che nasceranno i soliti misteri, fino ad arrivare a quell'idiozia di Voyager. Nonostante tutto, proclamare tutto come un guasto della Sukhoi, non penso che la possa mandare in crisi... diciamola tutta: la Sukhoi presenta Jet militari sempre più belli e potenti, basti pensare ai famosi Sukhoi SU 35 e SU 27. Non c'è proprio storia!

E' come se un giorno ci dovesse essere un guasto in uno dei tantissimi F18 Raptor... non penso che per un guasto, la Boeing fallirebbe... questi produttori fallirebbero per molto altro! <_<
