The second black box will be analysed by the French Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) in Paris, Xinhua news agency reported citing French news channel BFMTV.

BEA managed to extract useful data from the first black box — the cockpit voice recorder — retrieved last week. After analysis of the recording, it was thought the co-pilot deliberately crashed the aircraft.

The Airbus A320, operated by Lufthansa’s budget airline Germanwings, crashed while flying from Barcelona in Spain to Duesseldorf in Germany, killing all 144 passengers and six crew members on board. IANS
