Started to build a new website, about crashes.
I published a big collection of the black boxes decodings, where are recordings of peoples' last minutes of life http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

If you are interested, you can find it here http://www.airplanes.english4ever.com/rec.html

..... Dunno. Sounds a bit grim.

Not quite sure I'd be interested, bro, but thanks anyway...

I think he meant "transcripts", not "recordings". Big difference. IIRC it is against the laws to publish such recordings. Therefore I checked the site, and I found only transcripts which are pretty much relieved from the grim details.

Similar transcripts are openly available from many aviation accident investigation authorities, e.g., NTSB, http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/major.asp

Reading those reports are quite heavy, but if you have some aviation background, they are very interesting. It's not the screaming which is the grim part - but the knowledge how a combination of techincal faults and human errors lead to disaster. With todays several lines of defences againt such errors, sometimes it looks like a huge conspiracy of several factors which eventually lead to the disaster.

The "countdown to disaster" on Discovery channel is a popularized way to present the findings of the aviation accident reports. They aren't too bad, but a little bit too dramatized. I rather read the original reports http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Under the photo of the aircraft, it says 'Flight Recordins'. Under that it says 'Click here for voice recordings'.

And that is what you get.
