About the discovery of the flight recorders, told reporters the head of the civil aviation authority of Colombia Alfredo Bocanegra.
Probably, these “black boxes” will help clarify the causes of the disaster. In the press there was speculation that the plane could fall due to technical reasons – from-for shortages of fuel. Representatives of the administration of the airport in Medellin, which was flying the flight, said that shortly before communication was lost with the ship, its crew reported an emergency “due to a failure in electrical equipment”.
