Investigators were on their way to France on Monday with the two flight recorders in the Airbus A320 from Pakistani company Pakistan International Airlines which crashed on May 22 in Karachi.

The analysis of the black boxes in Airbus for Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) that crashed on May 22 in a residential area in Karachi begins on Tuesday, June 2 in France, investigators announced on Saturday. The two flight recorders are on their way to France.

The aircraft as the charter of the Bureau of Investigation and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) on behalf of the Pakistani authorities will land on Monday afternoon at Le Bourget airport.

Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A320 from Lahore crashed on May 22 in a residential area near Karachi airport, killing 97 people on board. Two passengers survived and no injuries were reported on the ground. The scene of the accident remains closed.

Just before the accident, the pilots reported engine problems. The analysis of the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder should allow investigators to proceed with the explanation of the causes of the accident, provided the “black boxes” are useful.

According to the first information, the aircraft could have scraped its engines on the runway during an abortive first landing attempt.
