An Airbus A321 (EI-ETJ), operated by Metrojet, was destroyed in an accident in central Sinai, Egypt. There were no survivors. The plane took off from the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh at 05:49 h local time to St. Petersburg in Russia performing flight 7K9268 and disappeared from radar screens 23 minutes after takeoff. Flight tracking website Flightradar24 shows the aircraft climbing to 30875 feet, after which it shows erratic altitudes and speed indications. Last altitude recorded was 27925 feet at a speed of 62 knots.A local affiliate of the extremist Islamic State group claimed it "brought down" the aircraft. While the investigation into what caused the plane crash is ongoing, the plane "may well have been brought down by an explosive device," the spokesman for the office of the British prime minister said.

Египет/ Синай/ 50 км ЮВ от Хасна
Российский пассажирский самолет А-321 (EI-ETJ) компании "Когалымавиа"(Метроджет), летевший из Шарм эль-Шейха в Санкт-Петербург выполнявший рейс 7K9268, упал утром 31-го октября 2015 г. в Египте. Самолет упал в местности в ста километрах от Эль-Ариша. Египетские специалисты получили первые данные с бортовых самописцев самолета А321. Согласно им, экипаж лайнера не запрашивал у авиадиспетчеров аварийную посадку.

Все 224 человека на борту погибли. Все граждане РФ.
31.10.2016 - МАК: „В настоящее время в соответствии с международными правилами расследования авиационных происшествий (Приложение 13 ИКАО) расследование проводится властями Арабской Республики Египет при участии специалистов Межгосударственного авиационного комитета, Франции, Германии, Ирландии, США.
К данному моменту комиссия по расследованию собрала и проанализировала информацию об экипаже, об эксплуатации ВС, о работе авиационной техники в последнем и предыдущих полетах. Со стороны участников расследования Египетским властям была передана вся необходимая информация о летной деятельности экипажа и авиакомпании, техническом состоянии воздушного судна, конструкции самолета и двигателей. В ходе полевого этапа расследования была составлена схема разброса элементов конструкции на местности (кроки). В течение 2015 года в Египте, в России, в Германии и во Франции были проведены исследования фрагментов воздушного судна, а также бортового оборудования, имеющего энергонезависимую память. В сентябре 2016 в Каире с участием специалистов МАК, Франции, Германии, Ирландии, США была выполнена "выкладка" фрагментов конструкции воздушного судна и двигателей.
В результате проведенных работ была определена зона начала разрушения самолета в воздухе и установлен факт высокоэнергетического динамического воздействия на обшивку самолета по направлению "изнутри-наружу" и "взрывной декомпрессии" в полете. Анализ результатов проведенных работ продолжается. Отобраны фрагменты конструкции воздушного судна для дальнейших исследований. Комиссия по расследованию Арабской Республики Египет продолжает работу.”

 

 

Начална страница - на българскиКатастрофата на руския А-321 в Египет
31.10.2015/ 04:12 UTC

Египет/ Синай/ 50 км ЮИ от Хасна

Самолет А-321 (EI-ETJ) на руската авиокомпания Метроджет изпълняващ полет 7K9268 от Шарм ел Шейх за Санкт Петербург в Русия се е разбил 23 минути след излитането си. Мястото накатастрофата е на около 50 км ЮИ от гр. Хасна. На борда е имало 224 души. Няма оцелели.

Изхождайки от данните на бордовите самописци, анализа на отломките и събраната информация за самолета, екипажа и пътниците дава възможност на разследващите да заключат, че катастрофата е в резултат на високоенергетично и динамическо въздействие върху обшивката на самолета „отвътре-навън” довело да разкъсването ѝ с последвала декомпресия на борда. Екипажът не е имал време или физическа възможност да съобщи за извънредна ситуация на борда и да поиска принудително кацане. Иначе казано, имало е взрив на борда.

Отговорност за катастрофата е поела въоръжена ислямистка групировка действаща на п-в Синай близка до „Даеш”.

Разбираемо е нежеланието на египетските власти, да се докаже, че катастрофата е резултат на терористичен акт, но в някои медии изтече информация, че са извършени арести на лица заподозрени в позготовката и извършването на деянието. Разследването продължава.
