BEA Says Data From Air France 447 Recorders Is Readable

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).

In the framework of the safety investigation directed by the BEA, all of this data will now be subjected to detailed in-depth analysis. This work will take several weeks, after which a further interim report will be written and then published during the summer.
