The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is assisting the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) with the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the tragic accident involving a Boeing 737-400 on 7 March 2007 at Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

As part of this assistance, the ATSB will download and analyse data from both the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and flight data recorder (FDR) recovered from the aircraft. Depending on the extent of damage, this may involve significant time in transferring data to new black box chassis before download and then analysis. If there is useable data, preliminary results are expected early next week.

The recorders are arriving in Canberra today at approximately 12.00 (midday) at the Corporate Air Facilities at Canberra Airport. The recorders will then be transferred to the ATSB headquarters at 15 Mort Street, Canberra.

There will be an opportunity for the media to film the arrival of the recorders at both locations, Corporate Air Facilities, Canberra Airport and subsequently at ATSB headquarters, 15 Mort Street, Canberra.
