The black boxes' locator beacons, known as pingers, emit signals for 30 days after the crash. After this time has passed, it could become impossible to locate the black box flight recorders and discover what happened to the Airbus A330 which crashed approximately four hours after taking off from Rio en route for Paris.
Searchers have been combing an area with a radius of 50 miles in the hope of detecting signals from the boxes that can be heard only up to about two miles.
