" Flight GE 222, which took off from Kaohsiung Wednesday evening, crashed into residential buildings in Xixi Village of Penghu, Taiwan's western island, after a failed emergency landing at Magong airport, causing 48 deaths."
Taipei, July 28 - Taiwan has finished decoding the data from the two black boxes of its ill-fated plane that crashed last week, the island's aviation council said Monday.

The council will release the information of one of the black boxes as soon as the data is confirmed, Xinhua quoted council chief Wang Hsing-chung as saying.

Recordings of conversations in the TransAsia GE 222 plane's cockpit cannot be made public for legal reasons, and the council is considering publishing a summary of transcripts of the conversation.

An initial formal report on the accident will be presented to the International Civil Aviation Organisation in 28 days.

Data and figures will be delivered in 3-4 months followed by a complete report in one year, Wang said.
