I'm le tired of this.

This is gonna suck if it turns out they've just been tracking some packing plastic that fell off a container ship.

How many pallets are in the ocean at any given time?

Just let it go, cause man, it's gone.

I think they thought this would all blow over and dragged their feet trying to save face. The whole thing has been a comedy of errors.

I am sick and f*cking tired of this flight charade. Somebody out there knows something.
I blame Obama, the alien nations and GMO foods.

This has probably been asked by someone in another thread, but couldn't they have an automated mayday in case the plane impacts something or even loses altitude very rapidly?

Well, not the 30 or so we have at work. But other than that, maybe.

If only the people on that flight hadn't been vaccinated then it wouldn't be lost.

Thanks Monsanto!

This reminds me.  Why hasn't anyone asked what TimeCube guy's opinion is?  Clearly the reason we can't find it is because we have been educated stupid, and not because oceans are giant and planes are small and planes tend to turn into many smaller parts when they hit the ocean.

What happened is known by me. The French lack accuracy. I cannot use the ability of me to have interference in the affairs which are international but shake the head of me at these searchings.

Lots of people in several countries know "something".
A fish does not poop in that area w/o multiple paranoid military observers.

Your fantastic scenario needs to include all those puds refusing to reveal how they were all flummoxed by a civilian pilot.

My theory is that the pilot got distracted by his Bluetoothing Mobobobo and asphyxiated the plane during the Choking Game part.

I'm sick of the MSM toying with us on this whole story.

As far as I'm concerned, if its not on BoeingGhazi.com then it probably didn't happen.

  But then I figured you'd know that by the handle and the fact you've been here for a couple of years.

So now every piece of junk spotted in the ocean is potentially from flight 370?

I love how it's always buried in the end of stories that the previously spotted objections are unlikely to be from a plane because they are so large.

New aircraft certified after a certain date, lets say 2001 and beyond, have ELT that operate on 406 MHz.  They are water activated and programmable for certain country and aircraft serial number data.  Each of the emergency slides on the aircraft may also have a smaller ELT because they can double as life rafts, and you can have a personal ELT but airlines do not have them on their life vests.  When an ELT goes off it talks to a satellite network and the coast guard or local equivalent know about it.  It sucks when your ELT goes off by accident because they will still show up even if it locates you in a hangar.  If the aircraft was grandfathered in to a specific certification you can get a waiver on current certification requirements.  This is done so rule changes tomorrow will not impact aircraft built 40 years ago.  That being said the airline can always make it a requirement to have one, and the airlines insurance company can do that too.  If they hit the water and sank then the ELT will not have much opportunity to do anything.

ELTs can be disruptive too because the strongest signal wins.  The aircraft ELT can be broadcasting but if all your people are on the life raft and it floats away, the life raft ELT signal will be blocked by the stronger aircraft ELT, and the rescuers will be looking for the aircraft and not the life raft.  There are discussions on being able to remotely deactivate an ELT signal for this scenario but there are trade-offs to that approach.

Plus what if all those microchip guys had these?

Of course they have that, but they also have a giant switch that says at the first sign of trouble push this button to turn off all tracking and go bareback, as appears to be the current case.
