The retrieved black boxes from the Boeing 737 MAX 8 was sent to France for examination.
“An Ethiopian delegation led by Accident Investigation Bureau(AIB) has flown the Flight Data Recorder(FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder(CVS) to Paris,France for investigation,”the airline wrote on Twitter.
The black boxes from the Ethiopian flight was sent to France,since the East African nation lacks the facility to carry out a detailed investigation of the FDR.
France’s Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety will examine the black boxes.
“This is a new type of aircraft with a new black box,with new software.We cant do it,”Gulf News quoted German BFU spokesperson Germout Freitag as saying.
Many countries including Australia,Singapore,the UK Ireland,France,India,Egypt and the Netherlands have disallowed the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft from operation in its airspace.
