The Black Box was sent on Friday. The plane was accidentally shot down in Tehran, killing 176 on board.



Iran had come under attack from the West after it denied its hand in the crash. However, it admitted few days later of shooting down the passenger plane mistaking it to be a cruise missile.



The Boeing 737-800 carrying 176 persons was shot down in January last. The dead included 55 Canadians.



The countries whose citizens were killed have been demanding a thorough probe into the tragedy.
