While decoding the EgyptAir plane’s recorder that fell into the Mediterranean sea, experts found out that one of the pilots tried to extinguish the fire a few minutes before the accident.

'Why did the fire start? What was the reason for that? There still is no answer at all. It’s definitely known that another black box, which was located in the tail of the plane, was broken not due to this fire,' media write.

It still is unclear whether the fire caused the plane’s falling into the sea.

On June 29, they reported that the data received from the first black box of the plane confirmed versions on fumigation on the board. It was fixed in the toilet and the avionics compartment. In addition, analysis of the debris showed rapid rise of temperature and soot inside the plane as well as the damages caused by this fact.

According to one of the versions, the liner’s crash could be the result of the crew’s actions that had responded to a false signal about the fumigation.

On May 24, they wrote that the plane’s sensors fixed a sudden change of the window’s temperature in the cockpit a few minutes before the crash over the Mediterranean Sea.

The Airbus A320 that belonged to EgyptAir, disappeared from radar screens when it was flying from Paris to Cairo on May 19. Later, it was revealed that it had fallen into the Mediterranean Sea. There were citizens from 12 countries on its board, a total of 66 people including 56 passengers, 3 security men and 7 members of the crew.

As reported earlier by 1492news.com, EgyptAir: Egyptian Military and Marine Forces have discovered more debris, passengers’ belongings, body parts, luggage, and aircraft seats of flight MS804.
