The underwater locator beacons (ULBs, or "pingers") on the CVR and DFDR only transmit for about 30 days, so unless they get the wreckage pinpointed and recovered pretty soon the transmissions will cease, making retrieval all the more difficult and maybe even impossible....


(The pingers are the small silver cylinder-shaped things on the end of each recorder).

I hope that you are right for the families especially and to get to the bottom of this mystery. Can't wait for Mandala499 to get back to us with all the facts I just hope that the truth will come out and not some bogus report.

Barbados, CWC soon, can't wait

Everyone's been silent on the actual accident, and the focus over the past few days have been political grilling/flaming... One (former) Air Safety Directorate Officer has been rumoured to have asked legal protection (in exchange for testifying).

As to this pinger pickup, the official word is that we have to wait for further details. I do hope that there'll be enough pressure to keep the investigation open instead of everyone hiding behind "confidentiality" that is used as an excuse to keep it buried somewhere...

I am extremely curious as to what caused the accident and also how it happened since none of the pieces found so far made sense, the conspiracies are too easy to fabricate...

I hope they can retrieve it in good time.


When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
