Air India Voice Recorder Recovered

Maybe now there will be some answers: Investigators have recovered the cockpit voice recorder from the Air India flight that killed 158 people. The evidence will help attempt to determine what caused the Boeing 737-800 to overshoot its runway in southern India before plunging over a cliff. Only eight survived the crash, with one man reportedly losing 16 relatives in the accident. According to survivors, it felt like a tire burst upon landing, followed by the plane catching fire and splitting in two. The crash is India’s deadliest since November 1996 when a midair collision killed 349 people.
