Iran, Jan 10 (Canadian-Media): The two flight recorders recovered from Flight PS752 crash site could provide some crucial clues around the cause of the crash of Ukraine International Airlines Wednesday shortly after takeoff from Tehran killing all the 176 passengers on board, media reports said.

"The flight recorders are very, very good at telling you exactly what happened," said Mike Poole, a former investigator with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada and an expert on flight recorders.
"If you're shot down, the signature is typically a perfectly functioning airplane and perfectly normal operations that all of a sudden stops," Poole said. "That doesn't necessarily [mean] it was shot down, but it says whatever happened was instantaneous."
Although both recorders were said to be damaged, Iranian state television said it was possible to examine these by downloading their memories.
While speaking to the reporters yesterday Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the families of the victims and all Canadians and I want answers and added, "That means closure, transparency, accountability and justice. And this government will not rest until we get that."
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky issued a plea yesterday to his Iranian counterpart to ensure that Canadian aviation safety officials are included in the investigation as the Transportation Safety Board of Canada announced late yesterday that Canadian investigators would at least be granted access to the crash site.
