Germanwings A320 Crash – Hollande Says FDR Memory Card “Missing” | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Germanwings A320 Crash – Hollande Says FDR Memory Card “Missing”

In searching for information on this vital piece of evidence, I have come across two distinctly different official stories.

In one line of narrative, the FDR has not yet been found as of yesterday according to an article from this aviation site.

“The BEA has yet to hold a follow-up briefing on the investigation and it fell to the European Cockpit Association to remind the world that investigators have yet to find the aircraft’s flight data recorder, analysis of which could prove vital to confirming the facts.”

The other story is much more troubling… and that is… the FDR was found very early on according to someone who would have knowledge of the investigation (the President of France) but… THE MEMORY CARD HAD BEEN TAKEN.

“Confusion surrounded the fate of the second black box. French President Francois Hollande said the casing of the flight data recorder had been found in the scattered debris, but was missing the memory card that captures 25 hours’ worth of information on the position and condition of almost every major part in a plane. Jouty refused to confirm the discovery” Associated Press, March 25 updated March 26

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WE are clearly not getting the real story about the crash of the Germanwings A320. There were initial reports that the Digital Flight Recorder had been located about the same time as the cockpit voice recorder. Then Hollande denied those reports. Then they claimed to have found the outer casing only. Now the story is that the Digital Flight Recorder had been foumd, but the memory card had popped out. Here is why this latest story is a lie.

The above is a diagram of a modern Digital Flight Recorder. It does not have a memory card like you would find in your camera or smart device, for the simple reason such cards could be dislodged in a crash. As you can see, there are multiple memory chips attached directly to circuit cards in a stack inside an armored casing. The memory system makes multiple copies of all data to preserve vital information even if one of two chips are destroyed by the impact. If the memory is no longer inside the recovered Digital Flight Recorder it is because someone intentionally removed it.
