With the info that the CVR is damaged and the fact that it takes such a long time to extract data from the FDR, it must be time to ditch the steam age use of "black boxes" and get all civil aircraft into the 21st century. Direct telemetry systems are readily available and linked to GPS would provide instantaneous data on any situation. With all digital systems in any aircraft built in the last 30 years, it is time the airframe manufacturers and airlines got their act together.
