Divers have found one of the black boxes of the Russian Tu-154 military transport plane that crashed off the coast of Sochi on Sunday. More victims’ bodies have also been recovered in the ongoing search operation.

“During search operations, one of the black boxes was found under the aircraft’s cabin. It will be taken out of the water soon,” the military source said, adding that two more flight recorders located in the tail section of the plane are yet to be located.

Three more bodies were discovered at the crash site overnight, as well as multiple pieces of the aircraft.

The Russian Defense Ministry’s Tu-154 plane crashed into the Black Sea minutes after takeoff from Sochi’s airport, killing 92 people on board. The plane was en route to Latakia, Syria, transporting 64 members of the world-famous Alexandrov Ensemble army choir, humanitarian workers and several media crews to take part in Christmas and New Year’s celebrations.

The head of the choir, conductor and composer Valery Khalilov, as well as revered Russian humanitarian and charity activist Elizaveta Glinka (popularly known as Dr. Liza) were among the victims of the crash.
