The What’s Inside Channel Cuts Open a Black Box Flight Recorder After Dropping It From a Helicopter

The father and son team of Dan and Lincoln from the What’s Inside? channel cut open a black box flight recorder after dropping it from a helicopter. It took quite a bit of cutting with a power saw to get through the box, which only suffered some minor scuffs from its 500-foot fall onto jagged volcanic rock.

We CUT a Black Box in Half!!! This thing is pretty much indestructible, but, we DID IT!!

This black box should hold up in 1800 Degree Fahrenheit temperatures and up to 3400 g force!?!?!? Still amazed we could get through it.
