BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – One day after an Airbus A300-600F UPS cargo plane crashed on its approach to the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is continuing its second day of investigating the crash scene.

The NTSB was able to locate the black box aboard the plane Thursday, something that could give investigators insight into what transpired in the final moments of UPS Flight 1354.

On Thursday afternoon, the NTSB will hold another press briefing on the investigation.

CBS42 will stream the press conference live on CBS42 and on CBS42.com.

The live stream will be available to view online at 4 p.m. Those who wish to view the press conference can do so by clicking here.
