BEA Recovers AF447 Cockpit Voice Recorder

Device, Along With FDR, May Provide Clues To The Cause Of The Accident

The French agency charged with investigating aviation accidents has recovered the Cockpit Voice Recorder from Air France Flight 447, which went down in the Atlantic Ocean on June 1 2009. The find follows the recovery of the data module for the Flight Data Recorder earlier Monday.

The Bureau d’Enquêtes et d’Analyses (BEA) investigation team localized and identified the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) at 2150 UTC on Monday, May 2, 2011. It was raised and lifted on board the Ile de Sein by the Remora 6000 ROV at 0240 UTC Tuesday morning.

It is still not known if the data contained in either unit will be usable after spending nearly two years under nearly 13,000 feet of water. Officials hope that the data contained on the FDR as well as an analysis of the voice recordings will provide insight as to the cause of the accident, which killed all 228 people on board the aircraft.
