‘Black box’ of crashed Mirage warplane retrieved
A submersible operated by an underwater research vessel on Tuesday retrieved the ‘black box’ of a Mirage 2000-5 fighter plane that crashed in the sea nine nautical miles northeast of the central Aegean island of Skyros nearly two weeks ago.
The armored-plated data recording device will be shipped to the aircraft’s manufacturer in France.
According to press reports, the crucial flight recorder was located at a depth of 800 meters. The rest of the aircraft was completely destroyed, according to reports.
