Malaysian Airlines Flight 370’s Black Boxes Need To Be Found ASAP! Hear Why Time Is Running Out On Solving This Mystery Plane Crash!

It has been 17 days since Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur, never to be seen again.

Officials announced yesterday that the plane is believed to have crashed in the Indian Ocean with all 239 souls onboard lost.

But the question still remains: what happened that caused this aircraft to crash??

Investigators are still trying to solve the mystery but they’re running out of time to get to the ever-important black box!

If they don’t find the plane soon, they may NEVER find it, as the battery-powered ping from the emergency recording device is fading fast!

By law, the box must emit its signal for at least 30 days. Experts say they can continue making noise for another 15 days beyond that, depending upon the battery strength at the time of the crash.

But will crews be able to locate these black boxes (which are actually red cylinders) in time??

John Goglia, a former member of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, explained how the clock is ticking on this mission, saying:

"We've got to get lucky. It's a race to get to the area in time to catch the black box pinger while it's still working.”

The plane’s last location has been pinpointed, according to a British satellite company, and several countries have reported finding debris in the same area. Now, experts will determine where the airliner might be at the bottom of the ocean by examining weather patterns and currents.

And then, crews will just have to wait and listen…

We certainly hope the search for the plane and the truth ends soon.

    "Officals announced yesterday that the plane is believed to have crashed in the Indian Ocean" No one in their right mind is believing that. The news will never tell us the truth.

    It doesn't matter? Don't you think CNN is talking enough about nothing? The plane is gone, everyone on board is dead and they knew it could happen when they boarded, end of story. Everyone on board, is dead. It would be nice to maybe find out what exactly happened, but what is needed might not ever be found. There is a good chance it won't.

    CNN should shut up and get back to us when they actually find something. I was bored with this story 1 week after and wasn't really interested to begin with.

    With all the technology available today (especially with satellite communications and data storage) why the hell isn't there an "off site" or "cloud" solution in addition to the black box?

    Re: idontgetit
    Why not fit a break away EPIRB in the tail section that automaticly activates once submerged, at least that way a refined search zone would be achievable?

    Remember the Air France plane that dropped into the ocean between Brazil and France a few years ago? They found its black box two years later.
