Investigators have begun studying the cockpit voice recorder of an Ethiopian Airways plane that crashed last week, a spokesman for France’s BEA air accident investigation agency said on Saturday, ONA reports citing Reuters.

Downloading the data was expected to take four to five hours, the spokesman said. The BEA also issued a photo showing the cockpit voice recorder dented but intact.

Once successfully recovered, the data should help provide answers to why the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft hurtled into the ground minutes after take off last Sunday from Addis Ababa, killing 157 people.
