New MH370 satellite data calculations narrow hunt to remote stretch of ocean off Australia
The Daily Mail Online ^ | March 19, 2014 | Daily Mail Reporter

Search area cut to the size of Arizona

Investigators have halved the scope of the search for missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 to an area roughly the size of Arizona, off the coast of Australia, it was reported late Wednesday.

Hourly satellite pings from the aircraft, refined by U.S. and British aviation officials, provided far more information than expected as to where a wreck may be found, allowing the search to be drastically narrowed to two possible flight paths.

Both of the routes head toward the South Pole and end in the Indian Ocean, some 1429 miles from Perth, ABC News reported. The calculations have now been handed over to Australian officials and the county's search and rescue crews are combing the area.....

I thought I read on Free Republic that this guy Diego Garcia (from Argentina) knew where the aeroplane was?!

I say look in the Dimantina Trench. If you want to commit suicide over the Indian Ocean and not want to be found ditch the plane there.

Or Rescue teams are headed in the opposite direction and need a little more time to achieve surprise.

There is a plane circling my house or this general area every few minutes. Maybe it got as far as Florida?

Actually I am around 90% certain it is a Specter Gun Ship as they have a distinctive sound.

If there was mechanical difficulty - why would they head there?

If there was a hijacking - why would they head there?

Why would a guy on top of his game just throw it all away???

He may have needed time to consider whether to land the plane on the surface and let it sink in the deep waters, or to take a nosedive from 35,000 feet and 500 mph.

It would be at more than 500 mph.

Perhaps suicide, but why go through all the trouble? Think of all the potential points of failure: you might not be able to hijack the plane, you hijack the plane but the pilot lies about your heading and you’re not over the Indian Ocean, who will hold the passengers at bay while you attack the pilot - you’ll need an accomplice who also wants to die in the southern ocean, etc etc.

A plan to commit suicide by hijacking a plane and then crashing it into the southern Indian Ocean... kinda far fetched, imo.

If it was a hijacking there almost certainly was more than one person. Which brings us back to mechanical failure.

This just doesn’t add up.

Maybe we can drop Zero off there so he can personally hunt for it.

It all depends on what Zullo & Arpaio have, O might have to pull another “bin Laden” out of the hat so he’s just getting prepared.

PzFeed Top News ‏@PzFeed 43s BREAKING NEWS: Australia satellite imagery spots objects that look like aircraft parts. 4 aircrafts and Navy ships en route to check it out. This wont mean anything til they go check it out, so many false leads, but I trust Australia so at least they are trying to help

Just reported on CBS local news that the Australian PM reported that “two objects may have found on satellite imagery.”

Hourly satellite pings from the aircraft, refined by U.S. and British aviation officials, provided far more information than expected

It's not surprising that the area could be narrowed. One would think the pings were within the service window of two, if not three, of the Inmarsat satellites allowing triangulation. I was thinking they were holding back this info because the area related to Pakistan or Iran.

If the 2 Ukrainians and 1 Russian on board are responsible for this, they succeeded at keeping Putin's invasion of Crimea 2nd billing in the news.. Perhaps their mission was to take this thing to the most remote, deepest waters to prolong search, THUS KEEPING IT IN THE NEWS. Putin would sponsor something like this, given that he knows how knee-jerk our news media is.

Seems like the aircraft was blown out of the sky because that crash signal was never sent from the aircraft!

If the Ukrainians/Russkis didn't do this, the Iranians did! I don't think either pilot was willfully involved in this.

One object is 24 meters, that’s 72 feet! Wing or stabilizer.

My theory has been that the Captain had a plan to fly the plane into a building. He lost his nerve while flying south with a plane of corpses, took off his own oxygen mask and let the plane continue south until it ran out of fuel. I wonder if wings completely void of fuel could float the plane?

And elsewhere Perth law enforcement officials are notified that an aircraft salvage yard has been the scene of theft lately along with several trucks and trailers.

All kidding aside of course it has to be plastered all over the media the plane is somewhere else, cause its known already exactly where it is, how its hidden, what the facilities are and local forces.

Cannot have another possible screw up such as the ill fated rescue mission of the Iran hostages many years ago. Those Iranians have seen Argo, seen Zero Dark Thirty.

Have to make sure any living passengers are safely away from the aircraft so it can be targeted and removed from the equation of ever being used as a WMD.

They were all already dead. It's just the direction the winds and the circumstances pushed the ghost plane.

If there was a hijacking - why would they head there?

It wasn't a hijacking

Thanks Uncle Chip.

Also in the keywords, topics about a radar “hit” of a plane, southern Indian Ocean, same arc. I’d point out that a crashed airliner will mostly not just hang around barely submerged, and that the ocean is miles deep, but I don’t think that’s necessary.
