After the Foundation of the crash of the Russian Airbus 321 on the North of the Sinai Peninsula was officially recognized as a terrorist attack, investigators focused on establishing the circumstances of the tragedy.
They will probably be installed, where was located the explosive device and the identity of all involved to the explosion.
Surveying the wreckage of a passenger plane Airbus 321, crashed in Egypt, experts of FSB have found the fuselage hole with a diameter of approximately a meter, the edges of which were curved outward. Professionals concluded that she could produce the result of the introduction of the drug high explosive brisance, manufactured in factory conditions - for example, TNT, or plastic explosives.
By using spectral analysis of the wreckage revealed traces of explosive drug, allowing irrevocably approved version of the explosion on Board an explosive device. What explosives were involved in the attack is not yet established.
Familiar with the course of investigation the informant said that the blast happened in the baggage compartment of the plane, which is located under the passenger cabin, and, apparently, in the cabin. The center of the explosion, according to the experts, was located in the end of the cabin - where are the tail frames, reports M24. The bomb could be placed under the passenger seat by the window.
Aboard the plane an explosive device could bring someone from the staff team of the airport of Sharm El-Sheikh, reports "Kommersant". For example, cleaners or salon workers carrying food and baggage. The bomb could have clockwork - but in the case of a delayed flight, at the airports of Egypt is not unique, it could be included even in an empty plane. In that case, if the explosive device would be located in the unpressurized compartment, to activate it could be a special meter that registers the pressure drops.
The specific construction of the bomb mounting is very difficult to detect its remains are required to survey a huge area. In detail unpleasant events more likely will help to understand not aviation experts, and investigators. To achieve the desired result, they will need to examine the preserved part of the plane and elements of explosive devices, and to interrogate members of the terrorist attack.
Note, earlier it was reported that an explosive device could be present in one of the suitcases in the baggage compartment in the tail of the plane. However, the nature of destruction is not affected - and in fact, and in another case of fracture of the liner would occur according to the same scheme.
The triggering of explosive devices has led to the destruction of the frame and depressurization of the cabin, which had the character of an explosive. Aboard people were killed virtually instantly from the sudden pressure drop. First from the side fell off the tail, then separated the other components of the system - the debris were found on the ground a length of 13 km and a width of more than 5 km.
Remember, the head of FSB Alexander Bortnikov officially approved that the wreck of the passenger liner Airbus A321 in Egypt happened the result of the operation on Board an improvised explosive device. The Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that all involved in this terrorist act must be found and eliminated.
The collapse of the A321 to the North of the Sinai Peninsula was the main disaster in the history of Russian aviation. 31 October after 20 minutes after takeoff a passenger liner, carrying out flight from Sharm El Sheikh to St. Petersburg, disappeared from radar screens. All on Board - 217 passengers and 7 crew members were killed.
