.. yeah , yeah , I know , I know . They are actually painted orange ..

.. but they are tough little buggers . Yes , they are critical to any air crash investigation ..

.. one box is the cockpit voice recorder . It is simple , it records the voices [and the reactions] of the members of the flight crew for a certain period of time ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the other box is far more sophisticated . This bugger is the flight data recorder . So , what does it do ? It gathers data from sensors throughout the aircraft [the fuselage , the wings , the cockpit , etc] . Those readings give you a sense of what is going on in the aircraft ‘ s operation t a certain point in time [over a certain period of time] ..

.. that will give you an idea of what is happening . It may well give you a clue as to why something happened , and what might be the cause ..
