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??
