Recorders from crashed Air France jet readable

Recorders from crashed Air France jet readable

French investigators say that flight recorders from an Air France jet found in Atlantic depths nearly two years after it crashed are readable.
The French air accident investigation agency BEA said Monday that international investigators downloaded the material from the "black box" voice and data recorders over the weekend.
It says all data and recordings from both black boxes was retrievable.
The BEA says investigators will now analyze the material, which will take several weeks.
All 228 people aboard Air France Flight 447 were killed when it crashed in the Atlantic June 1, 2009, en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. The cause of the crash is unclear.
