Should the search for Air France Flight 447's flight data recorder in the middle of the Atlantic serve as a wake-up call for doing away with the so-called black box in favor of real-time data streaming?

Earlier today, Clive Irving, Condé Nast Traveler's senior consulting editor and aviation expert, appeared on CNN's American Morning to challenge the makers of flight recording technologies to adapt theirs to communications satellites already used for data streaming. Read the transcript from today's interview, then follow Clive's reporting on the investigation of the Flight 447 crash in The Daily Beast blog.
