The main black box from the Russian military plane crash has been recovered from the Black Sea. All TU-154 planes have reportedly been grounded until the cause of the Christmas Day crash has been confirmed.

Russia's Defence Ministry told news agencies on Tuesday that the main black box from a Russian military plane that crashed into the Black Sea on Sunday has been found.

"The main black box was found at 5:42 a.m. Moscow time (0242 UTC) 1,600 meters (5,249 feet) from the shore at a depth of 17 meters," agencies quoted the ministry as saying, adding that the device would be flown to Moscow for evaluation.

It was not immediately clear whether the box had suffered any damage when the TU-154 crashed.
Investigators have so far said pilot error or a technical fault were likely to have caused the military aircraft to crashRussia to consider pilot, technical errors in plane crash into the sea. Although terrorism had not been completely ruled out, Russia's federal security service said in a statement that there were "no signs or facts pointing to a possible act of terror [that] have been received at this time."

Citing a law enforcement source, the Interfax news agency also reported that a second flight recorder had been found in the wreckage but not yet raised to the surface.
