Both flight data recorders of the crashed Boeing 777 aircraft of Asiana Airlines have been recovered, which authorities say could solve the mystery surrounding the accident involving the South Korean airlines.

Both flight data recorders have been recovered, the National Transportation Safety Board said, from wreckage left by Saturday’s tragedy that left two 16-year-old passengers from China dead.

Survivors and witnesses reported the 7-year-old Boeing 777 appeared to be flying too low as it approached the end of a runway near the San Fransisco bay.

“Stabilised approaches have long been a safety concern for the aviation community,” NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman told CNN, saying they represent a significant threat. “We see a lot of runway crashes.”
