Update: Sukhoi Superjet 100 crash at Indonesia one of two black boxes found

    On the 16th of May,Indonesian special forces have found as we can see from the video above what appears to be part of one of the planes black boxes called CVR(cockpit voice recorder).This device records all sounds that can be heard in a cockpit combing discussions between the pilots,providing valuable information to the investigators.The other one called FDR(flight data recorder) that records all flight parameters is yet to be found.The first box was found near the tail of the plane,approximately 100 meters away.Rescue teams will continue to search for the other box,but it will be 2-3 weeks at least before the CVR will reveal any crucial information to the Russian and Indonesian investigators.
