Progress so far
The authorities have said that they have made significant progress but that is just enough to retrieve the black box. John Lethbridge a special research vehicle has also been called in for the search but so far the investigators could locate and narrowed down a possible zone of 1 mile. However, according to reports, the zone should be well in meters to effectively find out the black box.

The chances of finding out the box are very bleak once the pinging stops.
