China says black box from crashed plane ‘highly likely’ to be cockpit recorder


Wuzhou (Reuters) – China’s aviation authority said on Wednesday the black box retrieved from the site of the China Eastern Airlines plane crash is “highly likely” to be a cockpit voice recorder.

The data storage units in the black box are relatively complete despite some damage, Zhu Tao, an official with the Civil Aviation Administration of China, told a media briefing.

The black box is being sent to Beijing, Zhu said.
