The Egyptian government claims that rescuers found the wreckage of the aircraft 804 EgyptAir Flight that crashed in the Mediterranean sea.
Pictures of the wreckage was provided by the Egyptian investigation Committee and civil aviation Ministry on Wednesday. The wreckage was found in several places. The Ministry did not specify the size or location of the found wreckage.
The Airbus A320, which was carrying 66 people crashed into the Mediterranean sea on may 19, during a flight from Paris to Cairo. Since then, the authorities are in the search for the wreckage and black box data of the aircraft, which could reveal evidence about what caused the accident.
Two weeks ago, French Navy ship has detected underwater signal from one of the so-called black boxes of EgyptAir Flight 804, according to investigators. Specialized equipment on Board a French ship La Place picked up a signal from the seabed in the Mediterranean, said the Investigative Committee in a statement.
After they find the black boxes, they will be shipped to Egypt, said the official representative of the Ministry of civil aviation CNN. This is standard procedure, the official said, similar to what happened in November with the recorder from Metrojet Flight 9268, which crashed in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
Flight data recorder gathers 25 hours of technical data from airplane sensors, recording several thousand different pieces of information. Among the items the researchers could reveal information about the provisions of air speed, height above sea level operating characteristics of the engine and the wing of the aircraft.
