Jet's Black Box Found

PETROPAVLOVSK-KCHATSKY, Far East () -- Searchers found the flight-data recorder in the wreckage of an Il-76 cargo jet that crashed this month in Russia's Far East with 21 people believed on board.


The black box was found under 3 1/2 meters of snow and soil, about 150 meters from cockpit fragments found earlier on the slopes of the volcano where the plane crashed April 5, Interfax reported Friday. The cause of the crash has not been determined.
