The flight data recorder stopped recording the climb on 9,400 meters

The commission looking into the A321 crash in Egypt has done preliminary analysis of copied and deciphered data from the plane's flight data recorder (FDR) and the cockpit voice recorder (CVR), the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) said.

"The flight data recorder stopped recording the climb on level 308 (9,400 meters). Until then the flight was normal and there was no record of failure of the plane's systems or units. The cockpit voice recorder data was preliminary listened to," the report said.

IAC specialists carry on their work on the A321 EI-ETJ crash site together with the Egyptian investigative commission and representatives of France, Germany and Ireland.

"Collection and examination of plane frame wreckage continue on the crash site. Plane debris has been found on a stretch of over 13 kilometers. The investigative commission continues its work in accordance with the standards and recommended practice of the ICAO," the IAC said.

Kogalymavia's A321 en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg crashed in the morning of October 31 in the north of the Sinai Peninsula near the town of al-Arish. All the 224 people onboard died in the crash.
