LONDON, July 24. /ITAR-TASS/. British air accident experts said on Thursday they are starting to examine data from the cockpit voice recorder of the Malaysian Boeing 777 airliner that crashed in south-eastern Ukraine.
Experts of the Farnborough-based UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said the data retrieved from the voice recorder could shed more light on what had happened to the aircraft.
Information from the flight data recorder has already been downloaded, an AAIB spokesman said, adding that data from the two black boxes will be combined. The Dutch Safety Board, which is now leading the investigation, said the analysis could take several weeks.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed on July 17 near the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, killing all the 298 people on board. Donetsk militia on Tuesday handed over both flight recorders to Malaysian experts who confirmed that their memory modules were intact. The black boxes were later sent to Farnborough, south-west of London, which has one of the two labs in Europe that can extract data from flight recorders. The lab is closed to press.
A representative of the Russian Interstate Aviation Committee will also take part in the investigation in Farnborough, the committee said earlier.
