EgyptAir plane’s voice recorder found

The cockpit voice recorder from the EgyptAir plane that crashed last month has been found in the Mediterranean, Egyptian investigators say.

A vessel with an underwater robot has been searching an area north of the Egyptian coast. Earlier, it found and photographed wreckage in the sea.

Flight MS804 from Paris to Cairo crashed with 66 people on board.

It is not yet known what caused the plane to go down.

The plane’s manufacturer, Airbus, previously said that finding the “black box” flight recorders was crucial to finding out what happened when radar lost track of MS804.

The cockpit voice recorder should allow investigators to hear what the pilot and co-pilot were saying to each other, plus any alarms in the background.

If the flight data recorder is found, it will show what the plane’s computers were recording at the time.
