EgyptAir Flight 804 Voice Recorder, Flight Data Recorder Recovered

Devices Reportedly Damaged But Data May Be Recoverable

ANN Realtime Update 06.17.16 1410 EDT

Egyptair Flight 804 Flight Data Recorder Recovered

Both the Flight Data Recorder and Cockpit Voice Recorder from EgyptAir Flight 804 have been recovered and handed over to Egyptian Authorities.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the FDR was brought up from the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea Friday morning. Both were at a depth of over 9,000 feet, according to Egyptian officials.

Accident investigators will begin to attempt to extract information from the two devices "immediately" if they are in good condition. The CVR, recovered Thursday, was expected to be in a lab Friday. An Egyptian official said in a statement that the "analysis of the data may take several weeks."

Original Story

Egypt says that the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) from EgyptAir Flight 804, which went down May 19 in the Mediterranean Sea, has been recovered.

All 66 people on board the flight were fatally injured when the accident occurred.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Egyptian officials said in a statement that the device was badly damaged when the airplane went down, but the memory unit which contains two hours of cockpit conversation has been recovered.

The CVR was located and recovered by the Deep Ocean Search Ltd. vessel John Lethbridge a day after a large portion of the wreckage was first located at the bottom of the Mediterranean.

The airplane reportedly transmitted multiple fault messages before contact with the A320 was lost, according to the report. The telemetry indicated possible smoke in the cockpit of the airplane. That may have come from an electronic equipment bay underneath the cockpit of the airplane, but there has been no confirmation of that scenario.

Egyptian accident investigators will try to extract the data from the CVR with the help of the French accident investigation agency BEA and the NTSB, both of which have much more experience in conducting such investigations.

The Flight Data Recorder has not yet been recovered, according to the report.
