You might check those miles again.

Big mistake on my part. I hope the search teams didn’t use my calculations. Should be 93.16 nautical miles. Multiplied instead of divided.

FReegards,

p.s. You are the only one to catch my error. Hat tip in your general direction.

Maybe so, but the General said we have satellites called “L.E.O.’S AND THE GLOBAL HAWK THAT CAN GIVE CONTINUOUS VIDEO COVERAGE" of a possible crash Location”

Does anyone know what “2m a second” is as a rate of speed?

Just ask Google: in mph: 4.47387; in miles per day: 107.372942.

This area, known as the “roaring forties” due to its latitude of 40 degrees, has a long reach for wind to travel completely around the globe with no continental land masses to interfere. Consequently the sea is tumultuous with high waves of 40 feet or more as the norm.

Operative word CAN. It doesn’t mean they did. They need to have a reason to pay attention to a given area, the middle of the southern Indian Ocean is generally not on the pay attention list. You can’t rewrite history, if they weren’t taking pictures of the area at the time the plane went down then no footage exists. This is the big difference between the real world and CSI world, in the real world you have to tell the satellite operator you want footage of an area and time BEFORE the satellite is there at that time, in 42 minute solution world the satellites always just HAPPEN to have recorded what our startlingly good looking investigator need to break the case.
