Aviation Expert Talks Black Boxes, Missing Flight 370
Aviation expert Craig Conroy joined “Fox Report Weekend” for a closer look at an airplane’s black box.
A Chinese ship has reportedly detected what could be a pulse signal from the black box of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
Conroy said a new technology would allow black boxes to live for 90 days, which would take off some of the pressure of finding them right away in the event of a plane crash. He said we will likely see that technology implemented in the next few years.
One viewer asked why authorities can’t have black box data sent into the cloud.
Conroy said that technology has been available for many years, but it would cost about $1 million per day for all flights.
