France to help with 737 Max crash probe

France’s Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety of France (BEA) said on Thursday it had received the two black boxes of the crashed Ethiopian Airlines plane to investigate the cause of the fatal incident.

“Ethiopian accident investigation team has arrived at BEA with CVR and FDR today. Coordination meetings are in progress,” the investigative bureau wrote in Twitter, referring to cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, known as black boxes, from the crashed aircraft.

It added that “technical work will start tomorrow” to try to read data from the flight and cockpit voice recorders.

A Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane of Ethiopian Airlines crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa last Sunday, killing all 157 people on board.
