Hunt for black box of ill fated EgyptAir A320 Flight intensifies
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has revealed that a submarine has been deployed to hunt for the black box flight recorders of the EgyptAir plane that crashed in some of the deepest waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
According to Sisi, the underwater equipment from Egypt’s offshore oil industry was being brought in to help the search.
“They have a submarine that can reach 3,000 metres under water,” he said in a televised speech. “It moved today in the direction of the plane crash site because we are working hard to salvage the black boxes.”
In the last three days, ships scouting the northern part of Alexandria have found body parts, personal belongings and debris of the ill fated Flight A320 which has 69 passenger on board.
The search for the black box has intensified as rescue officials are trying to locate the recorders which could shed more light on the remote and immediate cause of the crash which occurred last Thursday.
