Go to the back of the aircraft when none of the FA's are looking and rip up the flooring. You should fine a box somewhere down below with load of wires comming out of it. It won't be black, bright red maybe? But that's what your looking for.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Go to I know he had one or two in his garage last week. If they're gone he can get more.
A disclaimer though, nothing he sells is operational, and some cannot be exported.

There's one up for sale at ebay at the moment!

Just go to and type "747 flight recorder" in the search field.

Don't know if it's legal to have this in your home though and what would you do with it anyway?

Best regards,
