The renewed search, by the Seabed Constructor, has begun.
i like the way the ship is half cruise liner at the front and half workship at the back
Reports coming from Australia suggest that the search of the first high priority area has already been completed with no apparent sign of remains of the aircraft in the initial data. This appears to be the region ‘East1’ highlighted on the map on the previous page. The other extended areas, either side of the seventh arc, remain to be searched, probably starting with West1 first. CSIRO have cautioned that the data gathered thus far needs a thorough analysis to fully rule out the area concerned.
Erm, the search ship disappeared for 3 days now....spooky!!
"Neither the Malaysian government nor Ocean Infinity has explained the outage, or where the ship travelled in those three days."
MH370: search ship disappears for three days
Ohhhh, the tinfoil hatters are going to be all over this...
Story in the Chinese press that they now think it was suicide by one of the pilots, think they actually picked it up from overseas: MH370 experts think they’ve finally solved the mystery of the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight
That was quick of them.
That has been the simplest solution, consistent with the evidence, since about week 2 or 3 of the investigation, over 4 years ago.
I can understand why the Malaysian government would be reluctant to come to this conclusion but why the Chinese? Was the pilot Chinese Malay or is there some other reason?
Think my "they" is causing confusion, meant investigators not Chinese authorities or anyone, read the story on what passes for an independent news site here.
The most likely explanation for this probably goes something like this.
Crewman A: The transponder is off!
Crewman B: What how?
Crewman A: Shit! I wonder if I leaned on the button when I nodded off couple of days ago
Crewman B: Quick switch it on and deny everything
Captain: The logs say the transponder was off anyone got any ideas?
A & B: No Sir not us.
The plane flew into a worm hole, reappearence is pending. One thory i herd.
The new Malaysian government has brought the current private search to an end and may well not resume it next year (when weather would favour the next search season). Ocean Infinity searched an additional seafloor area of some 112000 sq km, almost doubling the seabed searched since the original detailed survey. Statement by Ocean Infinity here.
Maybe the Bermuda Triangle moved, I mean have we heard of any mysterious plane or boat disappearances off the Florida coast recently, I haven't, for years. I think we should rescind the name 'Bermuda Triangle'. Although we're not sure where exactly the new one needs to be located, where MH370 went off comms, or where the Immarsat pings ended which still doesn't explain how it got there. Much to consider.
Final report stating not suicide - so what now....?
Flight MH370 report: 'unlawful interference by third party' not ruled out
The role of the pilot was dismissed by the report. Kok said his investigators looked meticulously into the background and found nothing to raise suspicion. “We have examined the pilot and the first officer and we are quite satisfied with their background, with their training, with their mental health,” he said. “We are not of the opinion that it could have been an event committed by the pilot.”
It’s a Malaysian government report “not the final report” - the chief Malaysian investigator said: “In conclusion, the team is unable to determine the real cause for the disappearance of MH370”.
They emphasise only that it was under manual control and deliberately flown out over the Indian Ocean. They essentially hint that they can’t resolve anything further without (eg) the ATSB finding substantial portions of debris, bodies and/or flight recorders: “The answer can only be conclusive if the wreckage is found ... as far as our team is concerned, we have done our job ... We do not deal with search. Search is not our area. You have to ask the people responsible for the search. I can only answer your question relating to the investigation”.
Well yeah, bit of a dust of, but they have said they have disproved the suicide theories. When they mention it was under manual control when it turned, I had read, (a few weeks after the event), they could tell that that command in the cockpit was carried out by a laptop being plugged in to the port in-between the pilot and co-pilot....
You’ll be posting the link to an official source stating that then? Not one use of the word ‘laptop’ in the report.
They haven’t actually disproved anything about any of the pilots’ intents. That would require the CVR/FDR/QAR (or witnesses). They’ve simply hypothesised.
I didn't mention it was in 'that' report....I said I remember reading that a few weeks after the event...can't be digging around t'internet for it now, but I might try and retrieve it later...depends how well the search goes...
The French air transport gendarmerie (SR-GTA) are reopening the investigation.
The depressurisation theory would be my favoured guess, but still doesnt explain veering off course.
All speculation of course. It is very worrying how an airliner can just go missing in this day and age.
