EgyptAir Flight 804 Data Recorders Found

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. 

Egyptair Flight MS804 crashed while en route from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to Cairo. The Airbus A320 plane disappeared from radar over the Mediterranean Sea while approximately 175 miles away from Egypt’s coast.
