Two Russian airplanes TU-134 and TU-154 went up in flames in two separate incidents, perceived to be the handiwork of a terrorist group. Initial reports suggest that a terrorist group might have blown up both the Russian aircrafts, based on the identical nature of the explosion.
The tails of both the aircrafts have been blown away in an identical fashion. Investigators are also closely looking at the location used by the terrorist while detonating the aircrafts. The pilots of both the flights sent SOS alarms, before the flights crashed down to the earth. The pilot of the flight Tu-134, which crashed in to the Tula region, had left a message ”Attack on the plane”.
This clearly points to the involvement of a terrorist group. The other Flight TU-154 crashed in Rostov region. Totally 90 people have been killed in this terrorist operation, including the passengers on both the Russian flights. The experts going in to the reasons for the plane crash were initially confused on seeing the undamaged portion of the passenger salon and also the nose portion of the flight. But when they inspected the tail portion of the flight T-154, they saw a torn off section in the tail, where the toilet is located.
Another interesting aspect that was taken note by the investigators is sequence of parts that fell to the ground. In both Tula and Rostov regions, first the tail come down, followed by the fuselage, then the nose part and finally the cockpit. The tail that is located at the back portion of the plane wouldn’t have fallen first, if not for the explosion.
The investigators are also suspecting the usage of 500 grams of trotyl for blowing up both the planes. The experts are also of the firm view that the terrorists, who also blew themselves, might have placed the explosives in the toilets of both the planes.
