The second flight data recorder of the crashed EgyptAir plane has been found and recovered from the Mediterranean. 

The Egyptian investigation committee said the vessel searching for the wreckage pulled the recorder from the Mediterranean Sea, a day after recovering the cockpit voice recorder. The two were tucked into the plane's tail.

The EgyptAir Airbus A320 was flying to Cairo from Paris when it crashed on May 19 between the Greek island of Crete and the Egyptian coast, killing all 66 people on board.
