Investigators to check IAC theory on Moscow region air crash causes - Russian Investigative Committee

MOSCOW. Feb 13 (Interfax) - Investigators probing the crash of an Antonov An-148 plane in the Moscow region will check data from the Interstate Aviation Committee (IOC) about a link between the accident and airspeed misreadings, Investigative Committee spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko said.

"The investigators will analyze these data in combination with other materials relating to the criminal inquiry led by the Investigative Committee's main directorate on serious cases," Petrenko told Interfax on Tuesday.

"The investigators will check IOC specialists' theory alongside others," she said.
