That's what's there.

Out of curiosity: what are you using to sync up the tomnod maps with Lat/Lon coordinates? I did not see any indication of coordinates and the map numbers don't seem to have any (obvious) relationship.


replace "challenge" in the URL with "api" and it will give you the lat/lon

It's incredible the things the Chinese can do with stolen technology.

Oh...cool! Thanks for the tip.

Did you discover this on your own or is there some documentation somewhere?

It may not be all that deep there, and something fairly big and white would show up to a pretty good depth - depending on sea state. .

Gyrfalcon: lindalouwho: Old Man Winter: China just wants attention.

Most of the people on that plane are, alive or dead, Chinese.

At this point, they're mostly dead.


Nah, if they jumped up in the air the moment the plane hit, they could make it.  They could be holding on to seat cushions that also serve as a life preserver, I saw the video.

DontMakeMeComeBackThere: China planted some debris, took a lousy spy sat. picture of just so they can see how hig-res of an image the U.S. can produce.  They just want info on our spying capabilities.


...or it could be the pain killers talking


Yeah. . . You seen the high res goggle earth imagery or USGS hi res imagery? It feels like you can look through the Window of a house, and you could if the angle was shallow enough.

No one has any questions about how good of images US spy satellites can take.

Someone at airliners.net posted that fun factoid, so I can't take credit for it.  Just spreading the word.

Pick13: China should know where the plane is because, they shot it down.


There was a guy who committed a murder a while ago. His wife 'disappeared' and they suspected her body was dumped in a certain area. He led the group that 'discovered' her remains. Yes, some people really are that stupid. He's rotting in jail right now. So the saying is true, "who smelled it dealt it."

LasersHurt: guywhore: ISO15693: guywhore: What part of a 777 would produce a piece of wreckage 79x72?

A part with both a body section and a wing section.

The sections are square in shape. That plane can't produce a 79'x72' square piece of wreckage

Where the hell do you get the idea that they are "square"? Because two dimensions were given?


Because CONSPIRACY!

grumpfuff: MyRandomName: They tracked their missile to where it also disappeared?

Yes, China shot down a plane that was about 2/3rds full of their own citizens.

It's not like the Chinese Government has ever shown any restraint in killing their own citizens before. :)

Just out of curiousity, are you active at the airliners.net forum where this lost flight is being discussed?

Nevermind, saw you grabbed that info from the forums - for sure much more adult discourse and discussion than here on Fark. I shouldn't be surprised though.

I'll just come back later then when they're all dead so I can go through their clothes and look for loose change.

Looking at the report on CNN, thus was found about 140 miles from where the plane disappeared. Now, where is this in relation to the oil platform where someone said they saw a plane in flames. That being said, I hope they get some answers soon, for the families sake.

Fair enough, but it's not like China really had anything to gain by shooting the plane down. That's more along the lines of what I meant.

Hey!  The Michael Schenker Group had some great rock albums in the 1980's.
They were good for me, maybe you just need better taste in music.

Flint Ironstag: Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Last line of article: "What is a transponder?"

Maybe you should have looked that up before you started writing an article about a missing airplane, CNN.

That's a link to a page that explains what a transponder is....


Yes, I know.

gweilo8888: lifeboat: guywhore: What part of a 777 would produce a piece of wreckage 79x72?

The tail wingspan is about 71', so it's possible that's what they're looking at - tail wingspan and rear fuselage.

Realistically, I think not. While the size is feasible, a part of that size still being floating well over 24 hours later when they made the satellite pass is not. And while the sea in that area is quite shallow, it's not shallow enough to see man-made objects sitting on the bottom with standard photography.


As I recall from high school physics, objects submerged in water appear larger than they are, like a magnifying glass.

skinink: I'm just waiting for the news that one of the people on the plane was traveling using the stolen passport of Amelia Earhart.


WTF does she have to do with any of this?

Everyone knows she was killed by the Nazis after her father gave her a drum kit for her birthday.

Since it was a CNN report, I find it very suspicious that they didn't mention how many times the speed of light the plane was doing.  That could cause it to get blow'd up.  Get blow'd up real good.

That's not really calling it a bust, they're just saying they can't confirm it is.

Granted, that's assuming Google Translate translated it accurately, which I do have my doubts about sometimes.

Square?

Do you people even read the articles. Yes square.


a square has four equal sides guywhore so by definition 79' by 72' is NOT square
