Listening to the flight data recorders from the black box revealed that two unauthorized passengers were present in the cockpit – the pilot’s 12-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son.

On this day 75 people were killed in the crash of the Russian aircraft operated by Aeroflot in southern Siberia. The Airbus A310 aircraft flew on the Moscow – Hong Kong line. Listening to the flight data recorders from the black box revealed that two unauthorized passengers were present in the cockpit – the pilot’s 12-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son. The son was sitting in the copilot’s seat and accidentally turned off the autopilot. The plane began to lose altitude and crashed into a hill in the Siberian wilderness. No one survived. Unlike the Russian airplanes with which the crew was more familiar, the Europe’s Airbus had no audible alarm warning about the autopilot’s partial disconnection, and the crew could not react in time to correct the plane.
