PODCAST: #MH370 Search Technologies

RSS

It's been two weeks since Malaysia Airlines flight 370 went missing on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. In this week’s Check 6 podcast, I sat down with a group of senior Aviation Week editors to talk about the ongoing search for the Boeing 777-200ER. 

 

Bill Sweetman, Jim Mathews and John Croft talk in-depth about the technologies being used in the search and what their limitations are. The discussion also delves into what the aircraft’s “black box” would reveal – and not reveal – if it were recovered. 

 


Check 6 is brought to you every Friday by Aviation Week's editorial team. Recent podcasts are available for download on iTunes.
