Investigators are analyzing the contents of the crashed Tu-154’s black box, which reportedly includes a recording of the cockpit in the crew’s final moments. A source close to the investigation told Life News of the exact final words uttered there.

TrendsRussia’s Tu-154 plane crash

In the final recording of the cockpit before the crash the pilot can be heard yelling “the flaps, damn it!” followed by “Commander, we’re going down!” according to Life News, citing its source. 

That has not however been officially confirmed.

All the Russian Defense Ministry has said so far is that the data obtained from the flight recorder allows the causes of the plane crash to be narrowed down.

Earlier, Russian Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov said that the recovered black box measured the technical parameters of the plane and did not contain voice recordings.

Tu-154’s main flight data recorder was salvaged 17 meters below the surface of the Black Sea earlier on Tuesday, and its contents are now being decoded at the Ministry of Defense’s Air Force Research Center on the outskirts of Moscow.

I wonder what's going to come out of this? Not capable of voice recordings? I thought they were all voice capable.

Maybe one collects flight data and the other voice data.

The article contradicts it's self.

"In the final recording of the cockpit before the crash the pilot can be heard yelling “the flaps, damn it!” followed by “Commander, we’re going down!” according to Life News, citing its source. "

Then it says.....

"Earlier, Russian Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov said that the recovered black box measured the technical parameters of the plane and did not contain voice recordings."

Which one is it?

Flight recorder

A flight recorder, commonly known as a black box, although it is now orange-coloured, is an electronic recording device placed in an aircraft for the purpose of facilitating the investigation of aviation accidents and incidents.

The flight data recorder (FDR) is a device that preserves the recent history of the flight through the recording of dozens of parameters collected several times per second. The cockpit voice recorder (CVR) preserves the recent history of the sounds in the cockpit including the conversation of the pilots. The two recorders give an accurate testimony, narrating the aircraft's flight history, to assist in any later investigation.

The FDR and CVR may be combined in a single unit. The two recorders are required by international regulation, overseen by the International Civil Aviation Organization, to be capable of surviving the conditions likely to be encountered in a severe aircraft accident. For this reason, they are typically specified to withstand an impact of 3400 g and temperatures of over 1,000 °C (1,830 °F) as required by EUROCAE ED-112. They have been required in commercial aircraft in the US since 1967.

Apparently they have three different kinds, flight, voice and a combo pack.

^^^ Pretty much covers it. Personally never seen a "combo" box. The only thing I could add is that when they mention the CVR recording recent history, they mean the last 30min of cockpit sounds and conversation.

are flight data recorders shielded from emp? because that flash in the vid could have been emp missile and fried the electronics and shut down the engines, killed the radios (no distress call), and made flaps drop. but the black box not getting fried too, makes that theory not fit.

i remember something about a guy playing with an emp cannon shutting down a buch of cars on a freeway years ago but i cant find a link to the story, 

a lone wolf with such a device? idk?

or maybe the cia signal was sending it commands? or launch codes?

Remember a couple of years ago the Sukhoi-24 disabled the USS Donald Cook and then a couple of weeks later they did it again to another battle cruiser and the Yanks high tailed out?

I do.

Awesome that we go to China to get info, lol!

That's the nice thing about the gobal community we "live" in.  China has always been spot-on with some info.
