Black Boxes On A/c

Mon Jan 21, 2002 11:19 am

When did they start incorporating black boxes into aircraft? Are they used in corp. jets today? I understand they're pretty expensive and are not usually used in light general aviation aircraft, but a C-V isn't exactly light. Thanks.

Corporate jets do have them - Remember Payne Stewart's which crashed a couple years ago? it had recorders.

The only thing you should feel when shooting a terrorist: Recoil.
