Myan­mar ship re­cov­ers black box:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A Myan­mar ship has re­trieved the black box of a plane that crashed into the An­daman Sea with 122 peo­ple on board, the army said Sun­day, rais­ing hopes of dis­cov­er­ing the cause of the tragedy.

The mil­i­tary air­craft plunged into the sea dur­ing a rou­tine flight from the south­ern city of Myeik to Yan­gon on June 7.

Most of its pas­sen­gers were the wives and chil­dren of ser­vice­men.

Navy ves­sels and fish­ing trawlers have so far re­cov­ered 92 bod­ies plus some pieces of plane de­bris from off the coast of the south­ern town of Dawei.

Last week a fish­ing boat snagged a piece of the Shaanxi Y8’s tail.
