A team from the National Transportation Safety Board arrived Sunday on the scene of a deadly plane crash at San Francisco International Airport to begin a formal investigation into why the Boeing 777 plane from South Korea crash-landed into the runway, killing two and injuring dozens.

NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman told Fox News the agency is assessing the damage and has recovered the black box recordings from the plane’s cockpit.

“The cockpit data recording gives a sense of the conversations, the workload and what was going on between pilots not just in the moments of the crash but in the minutes and hours before,” Hersman said. “If the data’s good, it will help guide our investigation.”

Asiana Airlines Flight 214 slammed into the runway on Saturday morning, breaking off its tail and catching fire before slumping to a stop that allowed some passengers to flee down emergency slides into thick smoke and a trail of debris. Firefighters doused the flames that burned through the fuselage with foam and water, and police officers on the ground threw utility knives up to crew members so they could cut the seat belts of those who remained trapped as rescue crews removed the injured.
