Egyptian servicemen have determined the area where flight recorders of the crashed EgyptAir plane are located, according to Sputnik news.

Egyptian servicemen, currently looking for the wreckage of the EgyptAir plane that crashed earlier this week have preliminarily determined the area where the plane’s flight recorders are located, local media reported.

"This zone is located 3-4 nautical miles away from the site of the crash… finding the flight recorders is a primary task," a source told the Ahram newspaper.

On Thursday, the EgyptAir Airbus A320 plane, carrying a total of 66 people, disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace. The plane was headed from Paris to Cairo.

EgyptAir has said via Twitter that the Egyptian Armed Forces have discovered the wreckage and personal items from flight MS804 295 kilometers (183 miles) from the coast of Alexandria.
