    I can understand Iran not wanting to send the Black box to Boeing (unless it contained a Semtex surprise) but I thought being a Ukraine Airline there would be no issue, especially since Zelensky and Captain Chaos are buddies.

    • 10 Swedes
    • Four Afghans
    • Three Germans
    • Three British people

    It's important that we realise that this has nothing to do with the 737 MAX issue, it has nothing to do with the current US Iran conflict ( We hope ), it appears to be a malfunction..... Not sure that works, but let's give it a go.

    The aircraft was operated by a Ukranian company.

    Sad for all involved.

    More information on the news this morning. It was a near new 737-800 (not MAX), and the wording is beginning to suggest that it may not have been an accident - Iran has withdrawn a statement that there was no suggestion of terrorism.

    I wonder if it could have been a trigger happy air defence unit expecting US reprisals for the missiles launched only hours earlier?

    Oh John, you are a cynic.

    Getting the DFDR to the manufacturer would have little bearing on the outcome. Most investigative authorities have systems to access, retrieve and decode the data.

    Sort of like the car manufacturer insisting only they know how to service your car, when we know better...
