CRASHED EGYPTIAN FLIGHT DATA FILES SENT BACK TO EGYPT: INVESTIGATION COMMITTEE

CAIRO, – The data files from the crashed EgyptAir flight MS804 were sent back to Egypt on Tuesday, after one of the flight data recorder was fixed in France, the Egyptian investigation committee said in a statement.

The data files from the flight data recorder (FDR), have been transferred to Cairo, to extract and analyse the information, at the Central Department for Aviation Accidents of the Ministry of Civil Aviation of Egypt, according to the statement.

The process may take several days to ensure the accuracy of information, it added.

EgyptAir flight MS804 spiralled down into the Mediterranean Sea on May 19, on its way from Paris to Cairo, killing all 66 people on board.

Earlier this month, the investigation committee said, the hired vessel, Lethbridge John, found the crashed jet’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR), but it was damaged.

The recorders arrived in Paris from Cairo on Monday, to remove salt deposits. Earlier on Tuesday, the committee announced that the flight data recorder had been “successfully repaired.”
