Russian plane crash in Sinai: Flight recorders reveal ‘unusual sounds’ moment before jet disappeared

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”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, something altered the plane's flight characteristics, but did not produce an explosive sound which would have been captured on the recorder before the sounds "uncharacteristic of a standard flight."

Recall that the altitude data provided by flightradar24.com showed a sudden climb preceding the dive. This and the recorded sounds would suggest that the tail of the aircraft started to separate, starting at the bottom of the fuselage. This would lower the angle of attack of the horizontal stabilizers, which in turn would cause the aircraft to climb. The added turbulence from the out-of-alignment empennage would account for the sound.
