Iran transfers recorders of shot-down aircraft to BEA

Posted 21 July 2020 · Add Comment

Iran has transferred the recorders of the shot-down 737-800 over Tehran in January to French accident analysis bureau BEA.


Iran’s Civil Aviation Organisation said the recorders were retrieved immediately after the crash and delivered to its offices, where they have been “kept in a safe place” for the last six months with appropriate security measures.


This week, an Iranian team arrived at BEA’s facility in Paris where the recorders were put under guard by the French police under a co-ordination plan with the Iranian embassy.


The French and Iranian authorities signed a technical co-operation agreement on the issue on 4 July and BAE said that preliminary discussions are taking place between the various stakeholders.
