    In an interview with state-controlled NTV, Natalya Trukhacheva, identified as the wife of co-pilot Sergei Trukachev, said her daughter "called him up before he flew out. He complained before the flight that the technical condition of the aircraft left much to be desired."

    If true, this might alleviate fears of terrorism but isolate the Russian airline industry from the rest of the world
