Indonesia blames pilot error for deadly Sukhoi crash

Sukhoi crash

A KNKT statment said that all the warning systems were working well, and that a "Landing Gear Not Down" alert was sent out seven seconds before the crash, indicating it was less than 800 feet from the ground without its wheels lowered.

Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Mikhail Yurievich Galuzin welcomed the findings and said Russia had cooperated in the "objective and balanced" investigation.

Indonesia last month deemed the Superjet 100 technically fit for its skies, and the jet has already been certified as airworthy in Europe.
