Agarista: RandomRandom: The plane was probably found by analyzing US and Australian signals intelligence. They don't want the world to know how they know, so they tasked some satellites to find the wreckage.

Satellite photos released, search aircraft dispatched, plane found without revealing intelligence gathering capabilities.

except the search aircraft say they can't see well due to weather conditions


Weather often delays a good plan.  They'll keep flying until they 'find' it.

Wife asked where it might be. I told her most likely intact, since if it crashed, debris would be all over. I told her I thought if it ran out of fuel the result would be tyhe same, since if a jet landed in the water, passengers would flee like rats from a ship.
Insofar as family members grandstanding for the press, and saying the government is hiding the truth, yeah, what's the point in that?
I remember when I was little, 35-40 years ago, seems like gossly overloaded ferries were going down left and right. If the government can't manage that, what makes you think they'd care about a jet?
Seems like overall, their #1 commodity is people, and as you know, you gotta keep Vaal happy.

It fascinates me how people get on the major news networks to declare that they KNOW exactly what happened...and then completely contradict themselves.

"The only way that this could have happened--the absolute only way--is for a deliberate action by the pilot." Five seconds later: "But there's always that ten--twenty percent chance of something else."

I just listened to some supposed expert state that if the navigation system was disabled, there's no way the aircraft could have flown to where they now believe it crashed. Because there is no way you can program a head in and altitude manually. And god forbid there actually have been a mistake on whoever put in the heading. Nope, impossible! It just has to be a terrorist act! Or...pilot suicide. But we just KNOW, damnit!

So if this isn't it, then do they assume the plane didn't go south? Which means...Kazakhstan is back on the table?

The alleged debris in those photos look just like the rest of the ocean to me. Then again I could never see the sailboat either.

More like the Coral Sea has apparently made the Tasman Sea its biatch.

I'd bet on the Tasman to pour cold water on the Coral any day, but the water in that part of Australia is the Pacific Ocean. I'm about to go swimming in it.


Swimming in the winter? U mad?

CNN needs better looking women on its reporting if its just going to provide crappy reporting. I mean at least Fox has pretty women delivering derp.

The chick on MSNBC actually looks happy to finally be doing news again though. Suck it Scarborough.

Daedalus27: There is a lot of floating debris out there in the ocean.  It is a dumping ground.  So don't get your hopes up that any particular piece of debris is the flight.  Chances are some debris will wash ashore in Western Australia in a few months or years and that will confirm that it went into the water somewhere between Australia and South Africa.

Not sure if I'm having a humor fail or you didn't get my reference, but if it's 24m, it could be that the ship whose front fell off drifted back into the environment.

The one that died of old age when the company that does seismic testing was making sure there wasn't any seismic testing happening down there while the whale died of old age? (Wouldn't want a whale dying of old age to bugger the results, right?)

I actually said the plane was down under.  Of course I hit the submit button before I could finish my sentence with water, but that doesn't matter, what matters is that I was irrefutably correct, like always.

Mr_Crink: So famed aeronautical engineer Courtney Love's theory was right after all? They found Oil and Plane?


Yeah...looking at this new "awesome amazing best lead we have" satellite image, it looks like Courtney Love wasn't all that out of line with her image.  If any of you actually browsed TOMNOD to help with the search, it was extremely tedious and everything started to look the same after a bit.  ANYTHING that looked remotely different from the endless waves & clouds was to be tagged in the system and submitted for review.  Her only real mistake was going public with hers before it could be reviewed & verified as something of interest.

Pretty much unrecognizable.

I really did try to find a hidden gem in there. I have a band and we enjoy a Neil cover tune. There isn't even anything that can be reworked.

markie_farkie: Maybe it's time to re-think the whole "Pilot and/or crew able to turn off location-tracking signal generating devices" thing..

Seriously... Had every plane been configured since 9/11 with imbedded satellite uplink geolocation stuff, this would have been a non-issue to locate.  The engines are doing it now... Why is is so hard to add on a simple GPS chip that virtually every smartphone has on it and encode that data with the other telemetry that's being sent up already?


Why is the answer to every single disaster that the world is not surveilled enough?
