EgyptAir black boxEgyptian investigators have confirmed that crashed EgyptAir flight might have experienced fire on board. Data from the black box of the crashed flight has confirmed signs of smoke inside the flight.



The EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo has disappeared into the Mediterranean Sea with 66 passengers on board on 19th May 2016.



The automated electronic messages, which have been retrieved from the recorder of the plane, have showed signs that smoke detectors in the toilet and the avionics went off just before the disappearance.



Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee in Egypt has stated, “Preliminary information shows that the entire flight is recorded on the FDR since its takeoff from Charles de Gaulle airport until the recording stopped at an altitude of 37,000 feet where the accident occurred.”



The statement has also informed, “Recorded data is showing consistency with SCARS messages of lavatory and avionics smoke.”



The second black box from the cockpit is still getting repaired in the laboratory of Paris’s BEA aircraft accident investigation agency.



According to the investigation team, the front section of the flight’s wreckage has showed signs of high temperature damage and soot. No one from the Airbus A320 made any call before the flight crashed. The main reason of the crash is still being speculated.
