Search Continues For EgyptAir Black Box

The damaged flight data recorder from doomed EgyptAir flight 990 is the centre of attention as air safety investigators try to piece together what caused the plane to crash, killing all 217 people on board.

Meanwhile a US Navy robot and the recovery ship the USS Grapple continue to scour the bed of a section of the Atlantic Ocean in search of the airliners flight cockpit voice recorder. The flight data recorder was recovered on Tuesday and the US Air Safety Board have said they are beginning to recover information about the final flight.

When this information is gleaned it will be added to radar tracks of the flight and hepefully paint a reasonably accurate picture of the planes last minutes.

The search for the planes black box is continuing 250 feet (76 meters) below relatively calm seas but as yet there is no sign of it.

"We're going to be there as long as it takes," said Lt. Cmdr. Joe Navaratil, a Navy spokesman.
