There is hope that the black box of the MiG-29 fighter jet that fell into the Black Sea near Shabla will be found, the Minister of Defense Georgi Panayotov says.

On June 9, Major Valentin Terziev died during a training flight that involved shooting at air targets during the night. According to the minister, the investigation may be completed by mid-July, even if the black box of the plane was not found, based on what has already been established, the verification of documents, records of conversations during the exercise. So far there has been no leading version about the cause of the incident.
