@Kulverstukas - you're right. If I squint I can see. The CVR does not look badly damaged - certainly less so than the FDR.

I'm wondering where the recorders are being analysed, and to repeat my...

Presumably the area is dangerous for helicopters / low-flying aircraft, if hostile groups are on the ground with access to manpads. This must make the search for airframe wreckage more complicated,...

If a bomb of any kind was involved, I imagine autopsies would show this to be the case. However, have autopsies been done?

Twentyyears, you're right. FR24 does indeed show that 35 was being used for departures, and continued to be used for that after 320 aborted the landing.

By 'optimum', what I meant was that 05 was...

The FR24 playback suggests that no flights landed on 05 (or 35) for half an hour or so after the THY's incident. This included the flight immediately following the A320. Presumably the A320 left...

RTD1, I posted this twice, hours ago. I certainly think it's significant.

Clearly, also, someone on this investigation is leaking like a sieve.
