Authorities were racing the clock Tuesday to find the "black box" of missing Flight MH370 before its signal goes silent, as Malaysia admitted it got the last words from the cockpit of the doomed plane wrong.

Australian vessel Ocean Shield, fitted with a US-supplied black box detector known as a "towed pinger locator" left Perth on Monday but is expected to take up to three days to reach the search zone in the remote southern Indian Ocean.

A black box signal usually lasts only about 30 days and fears are mounting that time will run out, after the Malaysian Airlines plane carrying 239 people veered off course and vanished on March 8th.
