Tunis — The two black boxes of the Libyan military airplane that had crashed on Friday in Grombalia (Nabeul), were handed over on Saturday to the Libyan authorities which will take over the analyses of technical data, the Transport Ministry has announced in a communiqué.
Civil Aviation Director-General Kamel Ben Miled told TAP news agency that the Libyan authorities will contact the Russian company which manufactured the plane to enquire about the content of the data recorded in the two black boxes.
He added that the analyses could last one or two weeks and the collected data will be presented to the Tunisian-Libyan investigation commission.
Tunisia and Libya formed an investigation commission made up of 10 Tunisian and Libyan experts in airplane accidents to investigate into the crash which killed 11 persons on board of this plane.
"Diagnoses will be finished off on February 23, after collecting DNA samples from 35 persons among the victims' relatives," said Mr. Ben Miled, adding that these diagnoses will be submitted to the Libyan side.
