Black Box Still Key To Unraveling MH370 Mysteries, Says Aviation Expert


An aviation security expert on Friday in London, insisted that the future search mission should still focus on finding the black box of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.

Graham Braithwaite, Aviation Security Expert at Britain’s Cranfield University, said the search for the black box remained the core objective.

He said the data within the black box was key to solving all the mysteries.

“In fact, given that such a long time has passed, precisely locating the black box is already too hard.

“The discovery of the debris at least indicates that the search is in correct direction, and it may also dismiss those wild conspiracy theories,” he said.



Braithwaite suggested that Australia should expand its current search area and called for a concerted effort that involves Malaysia, Britain, China and the International Maritime Satellite Organisation.

The professor acknowledging the huge challenges posed by the ever-changing maritime conditions said that the search in the Indian Ocean had to contend with.

He also said continuing the search for more debris in the environs of Reunion Island still had significant implications for the overall search mission.

Braithwaite said in line with the aviation rule, families of the passengers on board the missing plane all had the right to know the truth about the accident.

He said the aviation industry also needed to know what led to the plane’s crash, so as to be in a better position to prevent similar accidents from happening again.

The battery of flight MH370’s black box, made by the U.S. firm Honeywell Aerospace, was designed to last for 30 days.

The cause of the tragedy may never be solved as long as the black box remains unfound.(Xinhua/NAN)
