Transcript for 'Clock Is Ticking' in Search for Malaysian Airlane, Black Box
This is still very much a mystery. Robin? It is. For more, aviation consultant Steven ganyard joins us. No emergency transmission before the plane disappeared. What does that tell you? I can't begin to guess what happened. It was probably something catastrophic that happened immediately. Or there was a problem in the cockpit that the crew was so absorbed with that before it ended up in a catastrophe that they were not able or didn't have time to make communications. Let me ask you this. In a time when technology is so advanced, why is it that the black box information is only available on the plane and not transmitted, say, back to air traffic control? That is a good question. That is being asked more and more after the air France disaster. In the past, a question of not enough money or satellite coverage. I think you're right. In this day and age, we should not lose an airplane like this and have it go missing for days on end the. The hope was that by now something would have been spotted. You're right. I'm a bit concerned about the coordination of the rescue effort itself. There are a lot of nations involved. Seems that everybody is putting airplanes and ships out there. Doesn't seem like the Malaysian government is putting things together the way it should be. We have 30 days, that pinger -- it's sending out a signal that says, I'm here, come find me. The clock is ticking. 30 days to go or we lose that pinger. The clock is ticking. Steve, thank you very much.
