FDR/CVR Mini-documentary

Sun Aug 02, 2009 12:08 pm

Hey guys, thought some of you might be interested in seeing this...even though it is in russian.
It is a video about a Russian maufacturer of Flight Recorders from a popular Russian tv show "Aviators", and testing them against the elements. In the end...they run drop one out of a helicopter at 1000ft and then run the same one over with a T-90 tank...that weighs 40tons.
Shows all 3 types.
Magnetic wire
Magnetic tape
New type: Solid data module.


P.s. judging from the cost of a FDR, I wonder what this shows budget is  Smile
