Following Turkey’s aggression in which it downed a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 bomber jet over Syrian territory on 24 November which killed one pilot and a rescue marine, Russian forces recovered the black box of the jet shortly after the fatal attack.

The Russian Defense Ministry has just provided a press conference stating its findings through a broadcast stream on Russia Today.

The chips of the black box are badly damaged, but the information and flight tracking from the microchips are still recoverable. The speakers stated it will still take some time to obtain all the information, but ensured the findings will be released as it comes.

Experts from China, the United Kingdom and the United States will assist in decoding. This is a difficult task as 13 out of 16 chips are destroyed with the other 3 damaged, but 1 most likely still readable.

“The readout of data from memory blocks is impossible at this point due to internal damages. The commission is studying the possibility of using the assistance of Russian specialized scientific institutions, which possess capability of reading data directly from the microchip,” said Lt. Gen. Sergei Bainetov, head of the Defense Ministry’s flight safety department.

International observers praised the transparency of Interstate Aviation Committee investigation into the destroyed bomber jet.
