PARIS (Reuters) - France’s air accident investigation agency on Thursday released a picture of the doomed Ethiopian Airlines jet’s flight data recorder, which appeared to show the crash-proof housing protecting the critical recording chip intact.

The recorder - one of two ‘black boxes’ whose data investigators will analyse to determine what caused Sunday’s crash - appears damaged at one side.

Investigators will also analyse the cockpit voice recorder from the Boeing 737 MAX 8 which should have picked up the conversations between the pilots and between the pilots and air traffic controllers.
