"‘Black box’ Of Crashed Plane Will Be Analysed In Nigeria"

Nigerian rescue workers gather around the wreckage of an Associated Airlines plane.
The ‘Black-box’ of the crashed Associated Aviation Ltd., aircraft would be analysed in Nigeria.
This is according to the Accident Investigation  Bureau (AIB) who stated this on Friday.
Spokesman for the AIB said the ‘black box’ would be analysed at its Abuja office.
The Embraer-120 aircraft, with registration number 5N-BJY, was operated by Associated Airlines and was on a private charter flight from Lagos to Akure.
It crashed shortly after take-off at the local wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos.
Oketunbi said; “AIB will analyse the black box at its newly constructed accident investigation bureau office in Abuja.

“Though, the laboratory is yet to be inaugurated, we will take the black box there for analysis to ascertain the causes of Thursday’s accident and how we can prevent a future occurrence.
“However, if we encounter any challenges while doing that, we may contact our foreign partners for assistance,” he said.
The black box usually contains the conversation between pilots and control tower at the airport prior to any accident.
The black boxes of previous crashes were sent abroad for analyses, and delayed the release of the bureau’s reports on its findings.
