Egyptian investigators have announced the flight data recorders from the crashed EgyptAir Flight MS804 have been successfully repaired.

According to, the flight data recorders were sent to experts in Paris to remove salt deposits that developed when the plane sat at the bottom of Mediterranean Sea following the crash on May 19.

Following the successful cleaning process, the recorders will be sent back to a laboratory in the Egyptian capital of Cairo so that experts there will be able to analyze the data. The hope now is that with the recorders functioning properly, investigators will be able to find out the reason why the EgyptAir flight crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last month.

EgyptAir Flight 804 was en route from Paris to Cairo on May 19 with 66 people onboard when the plane was lost from radar. The pilots of the flight made no distress call and no terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the crash.
