LATEST PICS: Black box found for Airblue crash

Investigators at the Airblue crash site in Pakistan have discovered the flight’s data recorder; with hopes that the ‘black box’ will provide clues to Pakistan’s worst-ever air disaster. The Airbus A321 crashed last week shortly before a scheduled landing at Islamabad airport, killing all 152 people on board. The recorder has been sent overseas for analysis, according to a report by the AFP news agency.
