Black box of ill-fated Egyptair found
The cockpit voice recorder of the EgyptAir flight that crashed in the Mediterranean Sea has been found by air crash investigators.
The black box from the ill-fated EgyptAir flight MS804 which crashed and killed all 66 people on board has been pulled from the sea.
Egypt’s civil aviation ministry said part of the recorder was found on the seabed in pieces, which were brought out of the water in stages. The ministry added that investigators were in possession of the “memory unit, which is the most important part”.
The flight recorder was retrieved by the John Lethbridge, a research vessel equipped with an underwater robot that joined the search at the weekend. It provided the first images of the wreckage of the Airbus 320 on Wednesday.
