Dana Crash: Black Box Report Ready In 2013 – Ministry / Lagos Crash: More Bodies Recovered From Dana Air / If The "black Box" Survives Every Plane Crash, Why Not Make The Entire Plane A B (1) (2) (3) (4)
|Black Box [NOT] Recovered??? by Josh316(m): 9:02pm On Jun 04, 2012|
I was happy with initial reports that the black box of the MD-83 Plane operated by Dana Air which crashed yesterday in Lagos killing over 153 people had been recovered. But my initial joy and enthusiasm was destroyed when i saw pictures of the supposed black box. To Inform you a bit, the term black box is a 'misnomer' because its colour is actually Red/amber and is an amour encasing of the Digital/Analogue flight recorder and Voice recorder. Now the box is built to withstand very high degrees of temperature (?2500 deg Celsius) and a very hard impact. however, the picture of the 'black' box said to have been recovered looks more like a battery or some other equipment on a plane but not a black box. I guess the clueless operatives thought since the box was black in colour, it therefore should be the 'black box' .
Here are the pictures for you to compare and comment
The first pic is a prototype 'black box'
the next two show what our rescue operatives found
