Pictures of victims of AN-72 crash near Shymkent27 december 2012, 16:19
The AN-72 military plane of the Border Control Service of Kazakhstan National Security Commission crashed at 06:55 p.m. on December 25, 20km from Shymkent airport. The plane had 7 crew members and 20 militarymen onboard, including the acting head of the Border Control Service of Kazakhstan National Security Commission Turganbek Stambekov and his wife Saule.
National mourning was declared by Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev on December 27. Kazakhstan media will not have any entertainment shows or advertisement on this day.
Chairman of Kazakhstan National Security Commission named difficult weather conditions, human factor and technical failures as possible reasons of the aircraft's crash. According to Kazakhstan Defense Ministry, Kazakhstan experts will start decrypting the plane’s black box today, December 27.
According to ex-Minister of Defense of Kazakhstan General Major Amirbek Togusov, the AN-72 military plane had difficulty landing in Shymkent airport that day: it came in for landing several times before the accident, but couldn't land. These problems might be caused by use of outdated navigation equipment amid the extremely poor weather conditions, he said.
The personnel of Kazakhstan National Security Commission has transferred their one-day salary to the families of the militarymen who fell victims of the AN-72 plane tragedy. Deputies of the Majilis (Lower Chamber of Kazakhstan Parliament) have also decided to transfer their one-day salary to the families of the victims.
A special account has been opened for collection of money for the families of the victims.
