The director of the BEA, RÃ©mi Jouty, has excelled in press conference that a team of specialists from the office he managed to retrieve a file with audio of the first found, black box while I was severely damaged, and has warned that analyze in detail can take days and compare it with data from the plane that contains the second black boxwhich has not yet been located, it could be extended for weeks.
The researchers of the French Office of investigations and analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) do not yet have an explanation for the decline that took place during the final eight minutes before crashing against the ground of Germanwings aircraft on Tuesday in the South of France.
Jouty has ruled out that the plane exploded in flight and said that it flew until it crashed in a mountainous region of the French Alps.
he didn’t specify if the pilots spoke in English or German and also provide details about the collected audio, but it said that understand from takeoff in Barcelona, Spain, until the plane crashed in the southeast of France.
also refused to refer to the possible causes of the accident of the Germanwings Airbus A320 while he was covering the route Barcelona-Dusseldorf. “We have obtained a file with audio data that is usable but it is too soon to draw the minor conclusion about what happened,” said Jouty. “We now have to learn to understand and interpret the sounds and voices,” added.

The expert denied that the second black box of the plane that would contain the flight parameters has been found already, but “reasonably optimistic” about the resolution of the case was because “we have an exploitable audio file”.
