Investigators said on Thursday that the cockpit voice recorder from the Air Algerie flight that crashed last month in northern Mali, killing all 116 passengers and crew, is unintelligible. The McDonnell Douglas MD-83 aircraft, en route to Algiers, smashed into the ground on July 24th, south of the Malian town of Gossi and near the border with Burkina Faso. Remi Jouty, president of France’s BEA air accident investigator, told a news conference that the team has been unable to extract information from one of the two “black boxes” found at the crash site. The 18-year-old aircraft’s voice recorder used magnetic audio tape–a system replaced in more recent aircraft by digital technology.
