The second black box from the crashed EgyptAir Flight 804 flight has been found in the Mediterranean Sea.
A statement reported that the John Lethbridge, a ship under contract with the Egyptian government, found the second black box, the aircraft’s memory unit. No details were given on the condition of the unit. Finding the second black box is an important development in the investigation as to why EgyptAir Airbus A320 crashed and disappeared en route from Paris to Cairo. All 66 people on board were killed. The EgyptAir Airbus A320 disappeared between the Greek Island of Crete and Egypt on May 19.
The discovery of the second black box occurs after the discovery of flight wreckage and the cockpit voice recorder. Investigators have already begun examining the cockpit voice recorder which was found on Thursday.
The investigative committee revealed both boxes will be analyzed in order to discover the possible cause of the crash. Both France and the United States have offered to support the technical analysis.
