Air Algerie Flight AH5017

Black box tape ‘unintelligible’

7 Aug, 2014

French investigators say the cockpit voice recorder from the flight is damaged and unintelligible, and that their team is unable to extract information from one of the two black boxes found in the wreckage.

The device seemed to be recording but we don’t yet know why it did not work, except that this was not a result of the crash itself.
