Black box easy to find

Share this article

WITH the problems of finding the missing Malaysian aircraft, I was wondering why they have had so much trouble finding the black box (which just happens to be orange).

With today’s technology why can’t these boxes be embedded in the wing or roof of the aircraft and jettisoned on impact with self inflating balloons attached by a line carrying transmitters.

That at least would help them find the area to look instead of the thousands of square miles.
