MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) Flight data and voice recorders of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft that crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa last week have been sent to Paris for decryption, the Ethiopian Airlines said on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Ethiopian authorities asked the Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA), the French aviation safety watchdog, for assistance in analyzing the black boxes of the jet. Earlier that day, the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation (BFU) said it would not be involved in the analysis of the plane's flight data recorder due to the lack of software for it.

"An Ethiopian delegation led by Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) has flown the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) to Paris, France for investigation," the company wrote on Twitter.

The Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 MAX 8 of the Ethiopian Airlines crashed early on Sunday. All 157 people from over 30 countries who were on board were killed. The causes of the accident are yet unknown. According to the airline, the plane was well-maintained.
