As I was sitting on the runway recently, heading home from a series of customer meetings, a parallel between the airline industry and my own suddenly struck me. I'm not a nervous flyer - but for some reason my thoughts were drawn to the role of the Black Box.

 

For years now, every commercial airline has carried a Black Box, more commonly known as the Flight Data Recorder among those in the industry. Unfortunately, these boxes only tend to be mentioned in those exceptionally rare cases of an airline incident or, worse still, airline catastrophe. It is only then that Black Boxes become headline news and central in pinpointing the circumstances leading up to the incident and diagnosing any faults. I'm told that over the course of a transatlantic flight that a modern aeroplane such as the Boeing 777 can generate as much as 30TB of digital log data, which is later analyzed by flight engineers.
