The Friday February 16, 1996 edition of "The Financial Post" (Canadian
business newspaper) reports on page 2 that the flight recorder of the 757
has been located.  "Search teams picked up a signal yesterday [Thursday]
from the flight data recorder on a Boeing 757 airliner that crashed in the
Atlantic last week...".

The flight recorder was detected by using "sophisticated U.S. Navy
equipment" which detected the black box's electronic alert signal.

The report goes on to mention that the actual recovery of the black box
could take several days.
