    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia's Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) said Friday it had completed the retrieval of data from the "black boxes" of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger plane that crashed on May 5 at the Sheremetyevo airport, the received information is now being analyzed.

    "The chairman of the IAC commission for the investigation of the crash of the RRJ-95B RA-89098 aircraft informs that the IAC Scientific-Technical Center has completed the decoding of data from on-board flight recorders [emergency and operational]. The received information is being analyzed," the committee said in a press release.

    An Aeroflot-operated SSJ100, bound for the northwestern Russian city of Murmansk, caught fire upon making an emergency landing at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport following on-board electronics failure experienced less than 30 minutes after the take-off on May 5.
