Not so fast my friend...from the article.

"The find - which comes more than three weeks after search teams found the tail section of the aircraft -- does not include the "memory unit" which holds the recorded data that could eventually help investigators determine the cause of the crash."

I saw that too and my heart sank. If it took them this long to find a bright orange box that size, imagine how long it will take to find the CSMU which is abotu 1/8th the size?

Hey, when they first "broke" the news, CNN was calling it the "fight recorder."

Now let's remember history, for those that forget history are likely to suffer from their memory lapse.

The recorder memory unit is now in the hands of the same goofballs that recovered the FDR and CVR from the crash of the A320 in Basel in 1988.

The same goofballs that were videoed taking a FDR from the crash sight with clear dents in the outer box, then presenting an FDR that had an undamaged case to the court deciding guilt.

Air France and Airbus were litigants in that case. The government goofballs protected them in the court case from the 1988 case.

Any chance that these same French goofballs will act any differently in 2011???

Expect nothing that shows that either Air Frog or Scarebus are at fault for faulty guidance or construction. The dead pilots are an easy way to evade culpability.

In their defense, they are taking a lot of precautions to ensure the integrity of the data. The NTSB has been present for all parts of the data uploading.

It looks like the data is good -- there will be some interesting news in the coming weeks.
