The latest update involving the Black Boxes is as follows:

The Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) has been retrieved, however investigators say they have not been able to retrieve the contents of the recorder as of yet.  I’m not sure if this is because of any damage or if the process simply takes time.  Investigators remain optimistic that they will be able to resolve the issue with the CVR and will extract the recordings shortly.

The Flight Data Recorder (FDR) has been retrieved, however it appears to be extensively damaged and the memory card that is normally in the recorder is missing and the belief is that it was dislodged due to the impact.

Other than the update on the ‘Black Boxes’ there has not been much else that has come from the investigators who are now scouring the scene.

I’ll continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
