Egyptair Cockpit Voice Recorder Memory Chips Are Intact: Investigators

EgyptAir Flight 804: Authorities open manslaughter investigation 1:11

CAIRO, Egypt - Memory chips inside the Cockpit Voice Recorder of Egyptair flight MS804 are intact and the device can be analyzed for clues as to what caused the crash, investigators said Saturday.

“Test results were satisfactory,” Egypt’s Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said in a statement.

The CVR is the second of two black boxes recovered from the wreckage of the Airbus A320, which crashed into the Mediterranean in May killing all 66 people on board.

The pilots made no distress call, and no terror group has claimed responsibility.

Earlier this week, the plane's Flight Data Recorder revealed that the plane’s sensors reported smoke in the lavatory and onboard equipment.

Ministry of Civil Aviation experts will carry out further analysis of both devices, the statement said.
