Further information

The arrival time of this event is an estimate only. The delivery of the flight recorders were reported in many UK Commercially-controlled media outlets. The following is from the Guardian:

The black boxes from flight MH17 have made a long journey from eastern Ukraine to a building set in woodland just outside Farnborough airport in Hampshire, the headquarters of the UK's Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB).

There, experts from the AAIB – considered one of the world's pre-eminent specialists in air crash analysis – will download the data from the two instruments, the voice data recorder and the flight data recorder. This process will not take long.

A spokesman for the Department for Transport, of which the AAIB has been a part since 2002, said: "They're confident that, depending on the level of damage, they will be able to retrieve the information within 24 hours and they'll feed it back into the investigation. We're not able to go into detail about anything else." [1]
