Re: The future of the 'black box'?

I think we should just make planes that never crash, eliminating the need for 'black boxes' entirely.

Apparently they've picked it up twice. Would they be able to triangulate from that? It wouldn't be directional so you'd have the same north/south corridor conundrum from the initial satellite data.
