CLARENCE, N.Y. (AP) - Investigators have recovered the two "black boxes" from the burned-out wreckage of a plane that crashed near Buffalo and killed 50 people.

Spokesman Keith Holloway of the National Transportation Safety Board said Friday that the flight data and cockpit voice recorders have already been sent to Washington for examination.

Contintental Connection Flight 3407 crashed into a house late Thursday as it approached the Buffalo airport.

An NTSB team is trying to determine what caused the 74-seat plane to drop out of the sky without warning.
