On Wednesday May 9, 2012 a Russian Superjet 100 aircraft went missing on Wednesday about 40 miles south of Jakarta during an exhibition flight with 45 people on board.

At dawn on Thursday a rescue helicopter spotted debris on the side of the dormant Mount Salak volcano.

When a rescue team arrived at the wreckage they have not found any survivors.

A picture taken from the helicopter appeared to show that the plane hit the top of an almost vertical wall of rock.

RUETERS reported that Sukhoi’s chief civil test pilot, Alexander Yablontsev, and his co-pilot, Alexander Kochetkov, flew the plane.

35 people on board the plane were potential buyers and journalists.

The others were Russians, all from Sukhoi companies, an American consultant with a local airline and a Frenchman with aircraft engine-maker Snecma.

They are still investigating the reason of the disaster.

I’m sad and sorry for the victims, their friends and families and their friends.

They must be very sad.

On Monday a Boeing 737 plane crash landed in San Andres Island, Colombia.

1 person died and 6 were seriously injured.

The plane crashed in a thunderstorm at 1:49 am.

It slided on the runway and broke apart.

The report says that the pilot’s name is Wilson Gutierrez.

He is a great pilot because he can stop the plane from hitting the airport.

If the plane hit the airport, more people will be killed.

It will then be a bigger disaster.

People don’t know if the aeroplane was hit by a lightning or a gust of wind.

And firefighters had stopped the beginning of fire on a wing.

It is the opposite when everybody in the Pakistani plane crash were killed.
