The governor of Kharkov region Alexey Kucher told on Saturday, September 26, that the managing pilot of the crashed An-26 talked to the pilot and they discussed the possibility of landing.
“The guys were in touch a minute before the crash. At 20:44 the guys were still in touch, and literally within a minute – everything … the plane crashed …”, – he said on the website of the regional state administration.
The governor also reported on the seizure of “black boxes”, but so far, said Kucher, they have not deciphered. The study of onboard recorders will start soon.
