I did read last week they were estranged/separated. Perhaps she told him she was filing for divorce.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

Over the past week, four satellites have reported sighting a debris field:
1. Photos taken on 16th March by an Australian satellite and released by an American company showed two large objects about 2,500 km southwest of Perth, Australia.
2. Photos taken on 18th March by a Chinese satellite showed one large object (22.5 m x 13 m) about 120 km from the Australian debris.
3. Photos taken on 23rd March by a French satellite showed 122 objects up to 22.9 m long at a place about 120 km from the Australian debris.
4. Photos taken on 24th March by a Thai satellite showed up to 300 objects up to 15.8 m long at a site about 200 km south of the French debris.

During a search like this, there will be a tendency for each satellite control team to try to confirm the other teams’ observations first, before looking at new patches of the ocean. One hopes that all these teams are not simply chasing down the debris field that was sighted first, but are looking elsewhere, too. Many commentators have said that debris tends to collect here in the south Indian Ocean. Perhaps we should be asking why there have not been more satellite reports of debris.

In due course, some of this debris will be picked up. Assuming it is from MH370, the underwater recovery phase will begin. Even if some pieces were picked up and positively identified today, time has run out for the ELTs (Emergency Location Transmitters). It has been more than 20 days since they were activated; 15 or fewer days remain before the batteries die. There is no prospect that an underwater listening device will pick up the signal. The current location(s) of the debris field(s) are now so far from their locations when the satellite images were made, and they in turn are so far from the original ditching site, that a lengthy search pattern will have to be used.

The reality is that the ocean floor is going to have to be searched visually or, at the very least, with underwater radar. The travel speed of these devices is miniscule compared to the size of the search area. By way of comparison, consider the length of time it took to find the remains of the “Titanic” and remember that she sank only 16 km from the ship “Carpathia”, whose position was known with much greater precision than the point of impact of MH370.

The cost in time and money of finding MH370 on the ocean floor may be too much to pay. It may be that the authorities will have to make a tough decision: not to search for the wreckage.


I Don't believe they will find the remains of this plane for a few years.

I heard on the news that the Pilot had a girlfriend as well as his estranged wife, and both of them left him. So because this fuck up can't keep it in his pants and handle his screw up, he takes down a plane full of innocent people.

Well we don't know that yet, I doubt they ever well, perhaps of the can get the FDR they will have a better understanding of why the plane ditched but not the reason for the route change it made.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

The UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) is part of the Department for Transport and is responsible for the investigation of civil aircraft accidents and serious incidents within the UK and its overseas territories.


Updated statement on Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 issued
26/03/14

In accordance with the protocols detailed in ICAO Annex 13 concerning aircraft accident investigation, the UK, as the State of manufacture of the engines, appointed an Accredited Representative from the AAIB, supported by advisors from the AAIB, Rolls-Royce and Inmarsat, to join an International team of investigators participating in the Malaysian-led investigation into the loss of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The AAIB continue to maintain a presence in Kuala Lumpur working with investigators from other states as part of a large international effort supporting the Malaysian authorities. It is not appropriate for the AAIB to comment further on the investigation.

I see the lawyers have started to sniff around now, they're looking to hold either Boeing or Malaysian airways (or both) as responsible.

Not to make light of the situation, but I can hardly wait until this is solved because it means an awesome episode of Mayday!!

Yeah, I know. Going to Hell in a handbasket.

They definitely need to get their ducks in a row before reporting anymore nonsense.

"Credible lead" moves search to new area

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: A new credible lead to where debris may be located has moved the search for missing MH370 to a new area, 1,850 kilomeres west of Perth.
Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) in a statement said search will shift to an area 1,100 kilometres to the north east based on updated advice provided by the international investigation team in Malaysia.

"The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), Australia’s investigation agency, has examined this advice and determined that this is the most credible lead to where debris may be located."

The new search area is approximately 319,000 square kilometres.

The new information is based on continuing analysis of radar data between the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca before radar contact was lost.

It indicated that the aircraft was travelling faster than previously estimated, resulting in increased fuel usage and reducing the possible distance the aircraft travelled south into the Indian Ocean.

ATSB advises the potential flight path may be the subject of further refinement as the international investigative team supporting the search continues their analysis.

The Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation is re-tasking satellites to image the new area.

Weather conditions have improved in the area and ten aircraft are tasked for today’s search.

They include two Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) P3 Orions, a Japanese Coast Guard jet, a Japanese P3 Orion, a Republic of Korea P3 Orion, a Republic of Korea C130 Hercules, a Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) P3 Orion, a Chinese military Ilyushin IL-76, a United States Navy P8 Poseidon aircraft, and one civil jet acting as a communications relay.

A further RAAF P3 Orion has been placed on standby at Pearce to investigate any reported sightings.

There are now six vessels relocating to the new search area including HMAS Success and five Chinese ships.

AMSA and the ATSB will hold a press conference

The press conference is scheduled for 14:30 AEDT if i'm correct
