PARIS (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) Experts of the French Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) will start on Friday decryption work on flight data and voice recorders of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft that crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa last week, BEA said on Thursday.

"Ethiopian accident investigation team has arrived at @BEA_Aero with CVR [cockpit voice recorder] and FDR [flight data recorder] today at 1 pm / Coordination meetings are in progress / Technical work will start tomorrow," BEA said on Twitter.

On Wednesday, the Ethiopian authorities asked BEA 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 black boxes due to the lack of software for it.

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.

Another Boeing 737 MAX crashed in Indonesia back in October, killing all 189 people on board.
