Investigators have downloaded information from the two flight recorders retrieved from the Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A320 which crashed in Karachi.

French investigation authority BEA states that – at the request of the Pakistani inquiry team – it has “successfully” obtained information from the cockpit-voice and flight-data recorders.

“Analysis of data is in progress and will continue this week,” it adds.

The inquiry team has yet to release any detailed information about the circumstances of the 22 May accident.

But there is evidence that the twinjet touched down with its landing-gear either retracted or partially deployed, and attempted a go-around before losing power and crashing in a built-up area short of the runway.
