Data Extracted From Blackbox Of Crashed Russia Jet: Aviation Minister

Cairo (AFP) - Investigators have extracted the data from one black box of the Russian airliner that crashed in Egypt and experts will now analyse it, the civil aviation minister said Wednesday.

"The data from the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) has been extracted and validated. It will now be subject to detailed analysis by the investigators," Mohamed Hossam Kamal said.

"The other black box -- the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) -- has been partially damaged and a lot of work is required in order to extract the data from it," he said, without elaborating.

Experts began examining the black boxes on Tuesday, and say their investigation could last several weeks or even months.

On Saturday, the Airbus A321 Saint Petersburg-bound plane operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia crashed in the restive Sinai Peninsula, 23 minutes after taking off from the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

All 224 people on board, mostly Russian tourists, were killed in one of the deadliest air disasters involving Airbus.
