Iran has disclosed part of the data from the black boxes of the downed Boeing 737-800 of the company “International airlines of Ukraine”. This was reported on Sunday, August 23, by the Associated Press.
Ukrainian and American experts, as well as specialists from France, Canada, Sweden and the United Kingdom, took part in the work on restoring information from flight recorders.
The head of the civil aviation Organization of Iran, Turaja Dehkani zangene, said that the time of the transcribed records was only 19 seconds. He suggested that the first missile that hit the plane had disrupted the voice recording system. Zangeneh also noted that all the information received by Tehran will be included in the final report on the investigation of the disaster.
On July 12, the civil aviation Organization of Iran explained in an updated report on the Ukrainian Boeing that the air defense complex was moved shortly before the incident-this led to a ” change in the geographical position and direction of the complex.” In addition, there was no data exchange between the air defense complex and the center, so the operator identified the aircraft as an enemy target and launched the first missile at the aircraft, and then the second.
On June 26, it was reported that Iran sent to France a flight recorder from the downed Ukrainian Boeing 737-800. The military Prosecutor of Tehran, Gholam Abbas torki, said that the black box from the plane was seriously damaged.
