Investigators have recovered the flight data recorder of EgyptAir Flight MS804, one day after the recovery of the plane’s cockpit voice recorder, the BBC reports. The recovery of the two recorders could provide investigators insights into what caused the plane to crash on May 19. Thus far no potential causes of the crash have been ruled out, including terrorism. 

According to CBS News, the investigative committee said that the data from the flight recorder will be downloaded from the recorders and analyzed once it arrives in Alexandria. Investigators in Cairo have already started analyzing data from the cockpit voice recorder.
