1. Extracting the black box’s data
According to KNKT’s head of investigation, Ony Soerjo Wibowo, the team will immediately extract the raw data contained in the black box for further analysis. The KNKT will work in conjunction with teams from the United States’ National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), Boeing, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and General Electric (GE).
