Debris of plane crash from a Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 is seen on the slope of Salak Mountain Western Java province on Thursday, May 9.

Indonesian soldiers consult a map before climbing Salak Mount to find the crash site of Russian-made plane Sukhoi Superjet 100, in Cipelang, Bogor, Indonesia, on May 10. Rescuers on 10 May found bodies near the wreckage of a Russian passenger plane that crashed into an Indonesian mountain with 47 people on board. 'Rescue workers have reached the crash site and found the wreckage and bodies of victims,' said Gagah Prakoso, a spokesman for the National Search and Rescue Agency. Air Vice Marshal Daryatmo, the national search-and-rescue chief, said the bodies would be airlifted on Friday because the terrain made it difficult to transport them by land. The Sukhoi Superjet-100 appeared to have crashed into Mount Salak at a high speed from 6,000 feet and disintegrated, Prakoso said.

Indonesian soldiers, part of a rescue team, take a break as they search for the wreckage of a Russian Sukhoi aircraft near Bogor May 10. A rescue team found no survivors but several bodies on Thursday when it arrived at the wreckage of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger plane that crashed into Mount Salak during an exhibition flight with 45 people on board.
