Another day, another Ukraine conspiracy disproved by fact. Despite the Ukraine government's insistence that the Malaysian Airlines black-boxes had been taken (and possibly manipulated), the investigators from The Dutch Safety Board have issued a statement confirming, "no evidence or indications of manipulation of the recorder was found."
Here's what they saod a week ago...
- *UKRAINE'S HROISMAN SAYS BLACK BOXES MAY HAVE BEEN REMOVED
- *UKRAINE GOVT DOESN'T HAVE BLACK BOXES, LYSENKO SAYS
- *UKRAINE SAYS REMOVAL OF BLACK BOXES FROM COUNTRY IS ILLEGAL
And now we find out...
Data Flight Data Recorder MH17 downloaded
Following yesterday’s press release, the international investigation team led by the Dutch Safety Board, continued the work on the Cockpit Voice Recorder and the Flight Data Recorder today. The work took place at the Farnborough headquarters of the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) in the United Kingdom. The international investigation team has conducted a thorough examination of the Flight Data Recorder. The Flight Data Recorder was slightly damaged but the memory module was intact. Furthermore, no evidence or indications of manipulation of the recorder was found. Following the examination, the data was successfully downloaded and the Flight Data Recorder contained valid data of the flight. The data from both recorders will be further analysed and combined.
A thorough analysis of the information obtained will take time and the results will be included in the investigation.
