Source claims terror attack not considered as key cause of Tu-154 crash

A terrorist attack is not considered as a key theory of the Tu-154 plane crash near the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, a source in Russian security services said on Sunday.

"The Tu-154 took off from the Chkalovsky airfield where the passengers and their luggage were thoroughly checked," the source said. "It was planned to make a stopover in Mozdok for refueling but due to unfavorable weather conditions it was finally made in Adler. So, no one knew beforehand that the plane will make a stopover in Sochi."

The source said that upon arrival to Sochi, the plane was taken under enhanced guard. "Only two border and one customs officers got inside the plane and the navigator pilot got out of the plane to control the fueling process.

No meals were delivered aboard. Fueling was carried out by regular personnel," he added.

Thus, according to the source, there is no evidence of a possible terrorist attack and neither the investigators nor security service consider this theory as the key one."
