Breaking News: Damaged flight recorders from the EgyptAir aircraft that crashed last month will be sent to France for repairs, Egyptian investigators say
Egypt officials were unable to extract any data from either of the two recorders and said that they will be sent to France for further testing. It appears the black boxes were severely damaged by saltwater. EgyptAir said in a statement Thursday that the French will “carry out repair and removal of salt accumulations.”
The Airbus A320 was en route from Paris to Cairo when it vanished from radar in the eastern Mediterranean on 19 May. 66 people were aboard when the plane went down.
