Ukrainian 737 crashes in Iran

An air crash investigation expert has said that the analysis of the black boxes is unlikely to show anything particularly interesting.
Black box analysis results from Iranian air crash likely to be 'anticlimactic,' says expert

He said it would likely just show everything going normally and then the data will just stop. There may be a few seconds of the aftermath.
Poole said the flight data recorder is likely to show the plane flying along normally right up until the missile struck. At best, he said, the cockpit recorder might have captured a few words from the flight crew.

"I think you'll hear a normally functioning airplane and crew speaking and data will just stop," said Poole. "You might hear a few seconds of the aftermath."
The expert in question is a former Canadian Transportation Safety Board investigator who specialised in flight recorders for more than 30 years. He set up Canada's black box analysis lab and now sets up black box analysis facilities around the world. I'm going to guess that he knows what he's talking about in this field.
Mike Poole, a former Transportation Safety Board investigator, has been specializing in flight recorders for more than 30 years. He built Canada's black box analysis lab and now sets up recorder analysis facilities around the world. He said the results of the black box analysis, when they come, could be disappointing.

"It'll be entirely anticlimactic," said Poole, CEO of Plane Sciences Inc. "The likelihood they're going to bear fruit is pretty small or zero."
