Black boxes are orange for easier discovery in the wreckage, and are called “black” due to the ugly, dark, black times they become of interest to us. I suppose we should be grateful the “Russian” Ukrainians are volunteering it so nicely in a photo op…never mind the clowns shot down a civilian airliner with the neat-o toys Russia gave them!! What the “F” good does it do anyone, when we ALREADY KNOW why the plane went down?!? How about just admitting how wrong you were in shooting blindly at a jet, and returning the bodies to their respective families!!! Oh, I guess that would not be politically expedient…besides Putin told you to blame the Ukrainian government!
