The black box of the Bhoja Air plane which crashed last month, killing all 127 people on board, has returned to Pakistan from the US after being decoded, Express News reported on Friday.
A team, under Senior Investigation Officer Mujahid Islam, has begun transcribing the conversation held between the pilot and the co-pilot of the Boeing 737-200 aircraft before it crashed.
The statements of Mukhtar, an on-duty worker at the Radar at the time of the crash, have also been recorded.
Initial investigations had revealed that the plane was at a height of 2,000 feet instead of 2,800 feet at the time of landing.
It is being investigated why Mukhtar did not inform the pilot regarding the plane’s height and its change in direction, and why did he not transfer the information to the Air Traffic Control tower.
The Bhoja Air flight from Karachi had burst into flames after coming down in fields near a village on the outskirts of Islamabad as it tried to land in rain and hail at the city’s international airport on April 20, 2012.
