Search expeditions have found the overwhelming majority of debris of the Tu-154 and Boeing aircraft collided over Germany near the Bodensee. Many people believe that the it is the Swiss Skyguide Air Control Company that was responsible for the tragedy. A spokesman for the Ueberlingen police department told RIA Novosti on the phone that all debris was being transported to a special hangar on the Friedrichshaffen airfield.
The debris will be subsequently examined by a special commission, which includes German, Russian and American experts. The source added that one or both aircraft would be reconstructed if it were necessary for the collision imitation. In compliance with a Russo-American agreement, fragments of the Tu-154 and Boeing aircraft will be either processed or handed over to the Russian or American side respectively.
In the late hours of July 2nd, a Russian Tu-154 airliner of the Bashkirian Airlines collided with the DHL's Boeing-757 cargo aircraft at an 11,000-meter altitude near the Bodensee. The Russian pilots could have escaped the collision if Swiss air controllers had not hampered them. There were 12 crewmen and 57 passengers /52 children and 5 adults accompanying them to Spain for a vacation/ on-board the Tu-154. The Boeing was piloted by two crewmen alone. No one survived.
