Voice recorder still has to be fully investigated
As an investigation committee looks into the black box recorders from crashed EgyptAir MS804, it has been revealed that the flight-deck voice recorder indicates an attempt to put out a fire on board.
The A320 crashed into the Mediterranean shortly before it was due to land in Cairo from Paris on May 19, killing all 66 people on board. The cause of the crash is still unknown.
Earlier analysis of the flight data recorder showed there had been smoke in the lavatory and in the avionics bay, while wreckage from the front of the plane shows signs of high temperature damage.
The voice recorder, which captures pilot conversations, cockpit alarms and clues such as engine noise, still has to be fully investigated and may indicate that a fire engulfed the plane in its final moments.
Meanwhile, a search vessel has recovered all of the bodies that had been mapped on the sea floor. The ship is now returning to the site to look for more bodies.
