Dutch Give Up on El Al Recorder

Download PDF for this date

The Dutch Aviation Board has abandoned hope of retrieving the cockpit voice recorder of an El Al 747 plane that crashed in Amsterdam three months ago.

The government agency had offered 10,000 guilders ($5,400) for information leading to retrieval of the recorder in the Oct. 4 crash of the Israeli jumbo jet, which slammed into a housing project.
