Astana. January 13. KazTAG - More than a year may be needed for detailed investigation of Fokker-100 crash in the suburbs of Almaty, said Roman Sklyar, Vice Prime Minister of Kazakhstan.
"Despite intensive regime of work, the world practice shows that investigation of such incidents may take several months, sometimes more than a year," he said at the press-conference.
He added the international aviation committee "is taking active part in investigation of this accident".
"A group of specialists arrived and works in the commission. A working group consisting of the best specialists was formed in the interstate aviation committee which will provide scientific-technical assistance to the investigation," he added.
He said one of the work directions of the international aviation committee is in analysis of previous accidents with the aircrafts of Fokker-100 type.
"Some of these aviation accidents require special attention and analysis. We see many similarities in the dynamics of flight and situation in the accidents in France in 2007, in Yugoslavia in 1997.
