  Iran Says It Is Willing to Share Jet's Black Boxes, Denies Hostile Act Iranian investigators said they would be willing to hand over the black boxes in a Ukrainian airliner crash to another country for analysis, as Tehran attempted to dispel claims by Western officials that the Boeing 737-800 was downed by missiles. Iran also invited investigators from Boeing Co., the U.S., Ukraine, France and Canada to probe the causes of the crash, which killed all 176 on board.The Iranian investigation team said Friday it would first seek to analyze the black boxes, including the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder, in Iran.
