The flight recorders of the A321 aircraft which crashed on the Sinai Peninsula are in good condition, Russian Emergency Situations Minister Vladimir Puchkov told Interfax on Oct. 2.
"They (the boxes) are in good condition," said Puchkov after he and Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency chief Alexander Neradko inspected the black boxes of the A321 aircraft which crashed in Egypt.
The minister also held a working meeting with the Egyptian transport minister.
"At the meeting (the ministers) discussed organizational issues concerning the joint work in the second stage of the search operation. In particular, a transport corridor was organized from the emergency zone, where the disaster happened, to the Cairo airport to deliver the victims' personal effects," the minister said.
The meeting also focused on helping the staff of the Inter-State Aviation Committee, who are investigating the crash, he said.
