Former deputy of The Head of Air Defense doubts that terrorists might be able to forge the flight recorders from ‘Boeing-777’.
The former deputy of the Head of Air Defense forces Lieutenant-General Volodymyr Diakov doubts that terrorists might be able to forge the flight recorders from ‘Boing-777’ that had been shot down by them.
According to UNIAN correspondent he has said about this during a briefing in Kiev.
‘They haven’t returned the flight recorders yet. But I doubt that they’ll be able to damage them in some way’, – Diakov thinks.
‘If one wants to forge something in them – it would be difficult and take a long time. Because one recorder register commands coming when pilots are talking to each other’, – Dyakov said, he also added that pressing of any button or lever is being registered by the second recorder. According to him both flight recorders are joined in time and their decoding takes a large amount of time.
‘If someone would forge something – it wouldn’t join in time and would be discovered’, – the expert assured.
As it was informed earlier on July 17 terrorists supported by Russia had shot down ‘Boeing-777’ of Malaysian airlines that was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The plane was shot down by anti-aircraft missile ‘Buk’. There were 298 people on board including 15 crew members.
