The 'Black Box' flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder from the fatal Metroliner aircraft accident near Lockhart River on Cape York Peninsula, Queensland are arriving at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau headquarters at 15 Mort St in Canberra at 7 pm today, Monday 9 May 2005.

The ATSB will provide the opportunity for a photo shoot (only) of the recorders arrival.

Channel 9 and The Australian Newspaper have agreed to film/photograph the recorders on a pool basis and make it available to all media outlets. Please note, due to space and security requirements this will be a strictly controlled shoot and limited to the two nominated photographers.

Accordingly you should make arrangements with those media organisations to obtain your copy.
