Zulu01, fair enough, and thanks for that. I was unfamiliar with that operation. I wanted to assay the conspiracy theorists amongst us that seem to think retrievals at that depth are easy and guaranteed.

"...however the flight data recorder was never found."
from the dreaded Wiki about the SAA, because an operation at that depth is always touch and go. As doubledolphins said, the data may also be degraded.
