BIRMINGHAM-AL -

Investigators recovered the flight recorders from the wreckage of UPS Flight 1354 just before noon Thursday.  The cargo jet crashed at Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport in the early morning hours Wednesday, killing two pilots.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Eric Weiss says the devices were found but declined to elaborate. Investigators had been combing the tail section of the plane, which is where the recorders are usually located.

The two devices could hold key evidence about what happened as the jet was attempting to land.  The plane slammed into a hillside just short of the runway.

A news conference is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.  You can watch it live on abc3340.com and on Focus@4.
