Tunis — The two black boxes of the Libyan military aircraft that crashed on Friday in a farmland in Grombalia, Nabeul, have been found, the Transport Ministry announced on Saturday.
Civil Aviation Director-General Kamel Ben Miled said on Friday an investigation commission made up of 10 Tunisian and Libyan experts in airplane accidents were tasked with finding the black box.
All eleven people on board of the Libyan military plane - type Antonov 26 - were killed.
The plane took off from the military airport of Miitiga at 23:51 p.m. on a routine flight to carry patients.
The commander of the Libyan aircraft had contacted the control tower of the Tunis Carthage airport at 1:14 a.m. to signal an outbreak of fire in its engine.
Air controllers had guided him to ease its landing but contact was interrupted between the commander and the control tower at 1:16 a.m. after a call for help was issued twice.
