Guess what - this zone is basically in the Diamantina Deep, the deepest part of the Indian ocean. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

No. Even 0.1KM resolution is obviously not enough from orbit.

Yeah. So three weeks ago the pilot of MH70 decided to suicide himself to get vengeance against the Malay authorities and provide for his next of kin. First he took the flight above 45K feet to knock out the other passengers. Then he directed the plane around various waypoints south to -48.806863,87.963865 , riding the plane all the way before the fuel gave out. All to get an insurance payout. Because the payout would happen before they ever found the CVR and data recorders were ever retrieved from the bottom of the Southern Ocean. Two years from now we will get some idea. I won't be here.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Wait an airliner went missing in two thousand and farking fourteen?


There are great big areas not covered by radar. Sure, planes can still communicate location data outside of active radar range, but that's pretty much voluntary because no one is watching. Planes can still get GPS data but the satellites only send, and the plane has to broadcast that positional data to someone, else it goes down with the ship.

Neal Stephenson wrote a neat book that involves this big hole in air traffic tracking:

Grahor: Oh gods, make it stop. The plane have fallen into the ocean somewhere. Ocean is deep. Nothing will ever be found. Can we stop now?


If the plane smashed into a gabillion pieces on hitting the water it's pretty likely some of those pieces are bouyant. They will turn up somewhere eventually.

I was shocked when that show was canceled. Funny. But I heard it had too many sight gags and not enough spoken humor. You had to watch the glowing screen with lazer focus or miss most of the humor. Americans are too distracted for that.

zerkalo: First he took the flight above 45K feet to knock out the other passengers.


I'd be careful about that. According to some friends who have actually operated primary radars for the military, the error bar on that altitude measurement is HUGE. He could have gone to 45k, but he also might never have been above 25k. At the angle of intercept, there's no way to be sure. The next step in a contested area would have been to get AWACS coverage or a physical intercept to determine it precisely and all you need for that is a good heading, not an altitude.

Also, according to another buddy who flies these things, you'd be in a dead stall with serious chance of losing the engines at that altitude in a 777. Flying on afterwards would be a real trick. Also, if you wanted to knock everyone out, you'd just turn off the cabin pressure - no need for a violent maneuver at all.

Presumably, a Global Hawk can fly under the clouds.

Though I don't know how drones fly in rough weather. If they ground them, if they can penetrate storms, etc.

You know what it takes to find missing airliners? It takes brass balls to find missing airliners. Go and do likewise, gents. The plane is out there, you pick it up it's yours. You don't, I got no sympathy for you.

The "waypoint" bullshiat was just some crap the Malaysian government and a bunch of retard reporters looking for any possible story made up two weeks ago.

Without some sort of evidence or confirmation from someone who doesn't have their head up their ass, its no more credible than anything else we've heard.
