    Preliminary data from the black box recorders of the Russian A321 passenger plane that crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula revealed that the pilots did not mention any technical problems with the plane prior to the tragedy, media reported on Wednesday citing a source close to the investigation.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On October 31, an Airbus A321 operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia, crashed while flying from Sharm El-Sheikh to St. Petersburg. All 224 people on board were killed in what has become the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian history.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, "the crew may have had little or no time to react" to the onboard developments, the analysis revealed.

    Preparation of a report based on the flight data recorders recovered from the crashed Russian Kogalymavia A321 will take from between one and four weeks, spokesman for the Egyptian government Hossam Kawish said Tuesday.
