Why is the color of the airplane white?

It is orange with white stripes, to easy the recovery process in case of an airplane crash. 'Black box' is actually an electronics term and has nothing to do with color. It is the idea of making electronics (especially avionics) as a self contained, single unit that just gets installed and plugged in. Sockets on the 'box' match terminals of a wiring harness and the 'box' typically lives on a rack or a rail. Faults or modifications to the component are dealt with by exchanging 'boxes' with another in stock, rather than doing the work in the aircraft. This reduces the downtime of the aircraft for maintenance because aircraft don't make money on the ground. Think of it as plug-and-play for aircraft. The 'black box' actually is two 'boxes': the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder. The function of the first is self explanatory, the latter stores telemetric data.

The Flight Data Recorder, aka the "black box", is a device that records the flight data of a plane. The information is inscribed on a small steel wire able to record up to four hours of information; the data is then scanned by lasers and shown on a screen, showing when, how, and why a plane crashed, or what made the plane do certain things. Here's something: when David Ronald Warren created the black box, he originally created it in a black container, but because the boxes blended in with the rest of its surroundings of similar color, he changed the color to orange and red.

No, it is not. Blue is a color or hue, and an airplane is an object.

The color black is often connected to death. When you attend funerals you wear black, hearses are black etc. The black-box is there to tell the story of the now-dead flight crew. Although it isn't always the case that everyone onboard died, the black-box was designed for these situations, and the name just stuck. ==Another possibility... The term "black box" also refers to a stand-alone electronic unit that is removable and replaceable in its entirety without having to cut and splice wires. Black boxes in aviation refer to the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) and the Digital Flight Data Recorder (DFDR) which are stand alone units that are removable for study simply by sliding out of their racks. In these days, however, data from black boxes is usually downloaded by computer hook-ups.

they are orange and white so that they stand out in burned wreckage making them easier to locate.
