Data files retrieved from one of the doomed EgyptAir MS804 black boxes were sent back to Egypt from France on Tuesday for study, the Egyptian investigation committee announced.

The data files will be decoded and validated at the laboratories of the central department for aircraft accidents at the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the investigation committee added.  

The committee also revealed that the repair process of the other cockpit voice recorder had started and that it would continue until the recorder's electronic board was fixed.

The committee added in its statement that it held a meeting between its members and the French and American representatives to evaluate the work that has been accomplished to date.

The black boxes from EgyptAir flight MS804, which crashed last month, were found at the bottom of the Mediterranean and were sent to France for repair on Monday due to damage.
