Black box of ill-fated EgyptAir Flight MS804 repaired



Black box of ill-fated EgyptAir Flight MS804 repaired

Hope has been raised in an attempt to ascertain the actual cause of the crash of the ill-fated EgyptAir Flight MS804 which plunged into the Mediterranean Sea killing all aboard as one of the two black boxes has been repaired.

Two weeks after the crash of the airliner which was en route from Paris to Cairo before it plunged into the sea, the flight data recorder, along with a second so-called black box containing sound recordings from the cockpit, were found.

When found, the two black boxes were broken into several parts and reportedly suffered serious damage.

The devices were later taken to the France’s BEA air safety agency for repairs and work has reportedly been concluded.

The black box recorder “has been successfully repaired … by the French accident investigation agency laboratory”, Egypt’s investigation commission said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Tests have been carried out … and we can be sure the flight parameters were properly recorded,” the investigators added.

“Work to repair the second black box will commence tomorrow.”
