The search party has recovered second body from the crashed Atlas Air Boeing 767 cargo aircraft, which downed on February 23, 2019. Additionally, the United States authorities are looking for missing Boeing 767-300 freighter flight recorders, also known as black boxes, deemed “critical” for the investigation.
A second body was recovered on February 24, 2019, according to the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office. The search party composed of the Baytown police, Houston police and Texas Department of Public Safety are still actively trying to recover the body of the third victim.
The search effort is complicated by the fact, that boxes are believed to buried so deep into a mud, that the effectiveness of their pingers is “reduced”. “It is a painstaking process, but is a priority for NTSB”, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) chairman Robert L. Sumwalt told reporters on February 24, 2019.
