Cuba plane crash: Black box found

MNA International Desk: A black box from a Boeing passenger jet that crashed in Cuba, killing 110 people and wounding three others, has been found and is in “good condition,” Cuban Transport Minister Adel Yzquierdo said Saturday.

“We should receive the other one in the next few hours,” he told state media.

The two black boxes — the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder — will be key in determining what caused the crash of the plane, a 39-year-old Boeing 737-200 that plummeted to the ground on Friday just after take-off on a domestic run to the east of Cuba.

The disaster is the worst of its kind the island nation has suffered in nearly 30 years. Yzquierdo said the recovered black box had been handed to investigators.
