MANILA, Philippines — It will take around a month for air crash investigators in the United States to analyze the flight data recorder or “black box” of the ill-fated Philippine Air Force (PAF) C-130 aircraft that crashed in Sulu, an official said Saturday.

“Wala pa sigurong isang buwan ang hihintayin po natin for the black box to be analyzed,” PAF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Maynard Mariano said in a Laging Handa briefing.

Mariano said the plane’s “black box,” is now on its way to the U.S.

“Sa ngayon po, it is too early to say po kung ano po talaga ang nangyari sa insidente (It’s too early to tell what really caused the crash) but we are doing everything po to fast-track the investigation,” he added.

“Ito po ay ia-analyze po doon at maghihintay po tayo ng kaunting panahon bago po ito maibalik po satin,” he said.

(This will be analyzed in the US and we will wait for some time before we receive the results.)

So far, the remains of 20 military personnel who perished in the crash have been identified. Twenty-nine have yet to be identified by authorities.

The C-130 aircraft crashed while after missing the runway while landing in Sulu last July 4.
