Both the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder have been recovered. The data recorder showed the plane approached an abnormally steep angle after it took off yesterday.

The recorder showed erratic elevator motion on each of the eight flights after that, including yesterday morning's flight from Lynchburg to Charlotte. Roanoke native Toby Witkege (WIT-kedge) and his girlfriend had driven to Charlotte so he could catch a flight, and saw the plane take off at an abnormally steep angle.
