Search crews have found one of two black boxes from the Amazon Air plane.

The black box that has been found is the cockpit voice recorder (CVR.)

“It should have all the conversations, whether the pilots were talking together or it was the control tower guiding them in discussing the weather issues.” said Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne.
