(Itar-Tass) - Specialists have found on the bottom of the Black Sea the second flight data recorder (black box) from the A-320 airliner of the Armenian Armavia airline that fell into the sea near the resort city of Sochi on May 3. Efforts to lift it from the seabed have proved futile so far due to bad weather, Russian televisions Channel One reported on Wednesday.

The first of the three black boxes of the crashed airbus was lifted from a depth of 500 metres on Monday. It was recovered from under a 5-centimetre layer of sludge, reports Trend.
