Russian experts have returned to their operations base in Indonesia after examining the site of last week’s deadly crash of a Sukhoi Superjet.

All 45 people on board were killed when it crashed into a mountain. Their remains are still being removed from the remote location.

Radio contact with the aircraft was lost during a promotional sales flight after it dropped to 6,000 ft near Indonesia’s dormant Mount Salak volcano.

Victims included Indonesian reporters and businessmen, Russian embassy officials, a French citizen and an American.

The cockpit voice recorder has been found but weeks may be needed to analyse its contents. The search for the flight data recorder continues.
