    So, there is already a system available! People are expendable (or so the bean counters think) to keep expenses down, until the yucky hits the fan as we have seen on numerous occasions. This airline seems to have the right idea.

      I advocated this concept soon after AF447 was lost and the ensuing prolonged period in locating the CVR and FDR.

      Real time flight data capture being held for ever for safety and future research purposes is completely do-able then and now as the Infomation Technology and Information Systems are very robust and affordable.

      It will not completely avert future disasters but it will certainly provide opportunities to try to prevent or minimise them.
