In a press release, the MND said military investigators recovered the black box from the site of the crash at around 10:40 a.m. today and were transporting it to the Taiwan Transportation Safety Board (TTSB), which is responsible for interpreting the device's data.
A 49-person investigation team had been dispatched at 6:40 a.m. to the crash site, which is located near the Tonghou River in Wulai District, on the border between New Taipei and Yilan County, according to Maj. Gen. Huang Kuo-ming.
The investigators successfully extricated the flight data recorder from the wreckage at 10:40 a.m., and reported that the device's exterior was still intact, Huang said.
TTSB Managing Director Kuan Wen-lin estimated that any recovered flight data could be interpreted within one to three days, depending on its condition. ■
