Flight Recorder Found

Investigators located on Friday the third flight recorder of the Tu-154 jet that crashed at Domodedovo Airport on Dec. 4, killing two and injuring 60 of the 167 people on board, Interfax reported.

The audio recorder was lodged under the plane’s nose, which broke off in the crash, an Investigative Committee spokesman said. The Interstate Aviation Committee began to examine its data Friday, hoping for clues to determine what caused the plane’s three engines to fail, prompting the pilots to make an emergency landing.
