We have been payijng attention in this space to the recovery of the black boxes from the doomed Air France Airbus A330 that crashed in the Atlantic two years ago. Why? Airbus supplies most of the jets in US Airways' fleet, including the 330s that take off from PHL to Europe each night, so we think there should be interest on the part of PHL travelers in the safety of the fleet.
The latest development in the ongoijng investigation the mishap is good news. There is a preliminary finding from examining the black boxes, which were recovered just last month from more than two miles under the sea. The finding: No new safety issues about the plane have been raised by what's been learned so far from the boxes, according to this news story.
