Black boxes from crashed Ethiopian plane are in France - BEA

PARIS, March 14 (Reuters) - The black boxes from the crashed Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 arrived in Paris on Thursday but are not yet in the possession of France’s BEA air accident investigation agency, a BEA spokesman said.

The flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder will be handed over to the BEA later in the day. Their data are critical to finding out what caused the brand new aircraft to plunge to the ground shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa on Sunday.
