Both Flight Data And Cockpit Voice Recorders Will Yield Data
From The Flight
BEA Safety Investigators say they were able to download data
from both the Flight Data and Cockpit Voice recorders from Air
France Flight 447 over the weekend.
The operations to open, extract, clean and dry the memory cards
from the flight recorders were filmed and recorded in their
entirety in the presence of two German investigators from BFU, an
American investigator from NTSB, two British investigators from
AAIB and two Brazilian investigators from CENIPA, as well as an
officer from the French judicial police and a court expert.
The downloads reportedly yielded all of the data from the Flight
Data recorder (FDR), as well as the entire recording of the last
two hours of the flight from the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR).
