Instruments Found at Crash

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Search teams have found some cockpit instruments in the wreckage of a Russian passenger jet that slammed into a cliff atop a dormant Indonesian volcano.

National Transportation Safety Commission chief Tatang Kurniadi said they have found the emergency locator transmitter but not the voice-and-data recorder. The black box data could help explain what caused the deadly crash.

Joint teams of Indonesian and Russian experts continued to comb through debris at the bottom of a 500-meter ravine on Tuesday afternoon.

The Sukhoi Superjet is Russia's first passenger jet model since the fall of the Soviet Union. It was being demonstrated to potential buyers when it slammed into a cliff last week.
