Comoros crash jet black boxes recovered
MORONI (Reuters) - Deep-water recovery specialists on Friday retrieved the black boxes of a Yemeni jet that plunged into the Indian Ocean off the Comoros archipelago in June.
"The flight data recorders of the Yemenia Airbus A310-300 has been recovered and brought on board the (recovery) vessel EDT ARES," chief investigator Mohamed Ali Abdou told Reuters.
Only one person out of 153 on board, survived the crash which happened as the aircraft attempted to land in bad weather on the final leg of a trip from France to the Comoros.
The black boxes should shed light on the cause of the crash which officials say remains unknown.
