Repaired black box confirms smoke aboard EgyptAir before crash



Repaired black box confirms smoke aboard EgyptAir before crash
Investigators have confirmed that the data from one of the repaired black boxes recovered from the ill fated EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo showed that smoke alarms sounded on board the plane before it crashed into the Mediterranean Sea.
The Egyptian-led investigative committee also informed that soot was found on the wreckage of the plane after the crash which claimed the lives of 66 people on board flight on the 19th of May.
“Recorded data is showing a consistency with ACARS messages of lavatory smoke and avionics smoke,” the committee said on Wednesday.
It could be recalled that after the plane went down, investigators had previously announced that the plane’s automated Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) sent signals indicating smoke alarms on board the flight.
“Parts of the front section of the aircraft showed signs of high temperature damage and soot,” the committee statement added.
