INDEPENDENT UK – The disappearance of the Russian airliner which crashed in Sinai on Saturday was preceded by sounds in the cockpit “uncharacteristic of a standard flight”, according to Russian media.

The Interfax news agency quoted officials in Cairo as providing a first insight into audio recordings from the Airbus 321’s “black box” recorders.

They reported that after a period of routine discussions between crew members, “the recordings show sounds uncharacteristic of a standard flight precede the moment of the airliner’s disappearance”.

According to Interfax, the recordings also suggest “there was a sudden emergency situation on board which took the crew by surprise, and the pilots did not have time to send a distress signal”.

Confusion remains over whether the crash of the plane, which broke up in mid-air and sent debris across the remote and conflict-ridden region of Egypt, was caused by an internal fault, explosive device or external action.
