Indonesia Rescuers Reach Crashed Russia-Made Plane; No Survivors

Indonesian rescuers reached a Russian-made Sukhoi SuperJet 100 that crashed on a remote mountainside yesterday during a promotional flight. There were no signs of survivors among the 45 people onboard.

Authorities will start airlifting the crash victims back to Halim Perdana airport this afternoon, once a helicopter landing site is cleared, Gagah Prakoso, a spokesman for the National Search and Rescue Agency, said at the airport today. About 600 people, including military and police, have been deployed in the search since late yesterday, he said.
