NEW YORK (AP) - Federal investigators have downloaded the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder of the plane that skidded off the runway in a snowstorm at LaGuardia Airport.

The recorders from Delta Air Lines flight 1086 were brought to the National Transportation Safety Board’s lab in Washington, D.C. after Thursday’s accident.

The accident caused only minor injuries to six passengers but the plane came perilously close to landing in Flushing Bay.

The NTSB says it plans to begin interviewing the flight’s crew Saturday.

The MD-88 plane is an older model with a digital flight data recorder. That means it will take investigators take longer to process the information than it would with a newer, digital recorder.

The NTSB is expected to release some of the details from the recorders on Monday.
