Nothing Found on Black Box Recovered from Afghan Air Crash

The flight data recorder commonly called the black box that had been recovered from the February crash of a 737 in Afghanistan not only had no data from the fatal crash, but was also found to have no data on the previous 25 flight hours the plane was in service.

The black box was sent to the United States for analysis, since there is no facility capable of doing this in Afghanistan. There is no explanation as to why the black box malfunctioned.

A second black box that records the conversation between the pilots and the air traffic controllers has not been found. Both boxes are designed to withstand a crash and transmit signals to enable them to be found.

Twenty four of the 104 passengers aboard the Kam Air flight from Herat to Kabul were foreigners. The plane crashed into a mountain during a blizzard, leaving no survivors.
