British experts to analyze MH17 black boxes

LONDON (AP) - Black boxes from the Malaysia Airlines plane downed in eastern Ukraine will be examined by U.K. air accident investigators, Britain's prime minister said Tuesday.

British experts at the Air Accidents Investigation Branch will retrieve data from the flight recorders for analysis, following a request from the government of the Netherlands, David Cameron said on Twitter.

The experts expect to download all the information within 24 hours of retrieving them, a Department of Transport spokesman said. They will not publish their findings but will pass them on to Dutch authorities, who will then decide what information can be released.

Earlier Tuesday, pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine handed the two black boxes from Flight 17 over to Malaysian investigators in the city of Donetsk. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the handover was part of an agreement he had reached with rebel leader Alexander Borodai.

Najib said the black boxes appeared "to be in good condition."

We are tired of political misinformation.
Let the international license experts control the boxes under Malaysians authorities. They are still having questions or the previos Malaysian plane that according tom many did not dispear ion the Indic Ocean.

British should not be allowed to perform this: they are too biased toward Russia.

TEH BOXES MUST BE INSPECTED NOT BY THE BRITISH OR THE NETHERLANDS, BUT BY INTERNATIONAL LICENSE EXPERTS UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE MALASYANS. WHY THE BRITISH?

The "Black Box" (which incidentially is Orange NOT Black) will only tell them altitude, speed, heading etc. until the time of the explosion and then nothing,Period! They can analyze all they want, they won't find anything there! They need to look for the Separatist's instead who lied about this whole cover-up & mass execution of innocent people!
