Skip to comments.Searchers dismiss possibility wreckage in Bay of Bengal is from MH370
Posted on 04/29/2014 7:07:35 PM PDT by Uncle Chip
A private company said it had found what it believes is wreckage of a plane in the Bay of Bengal that should be investigated as potential debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, but the possibility was dismissed by search coordinators.
The Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) managing the multinational search for the missing plane said it continued to believe that the plane came down in the southern Indian Ocean off Australia.
The Bay of Bengal is located between India and Myanmar, thousands of miles from the current search area. The wreckage was reported by Australian geophysical survey company GeoResonance....
The company said it had passed on the information to Malaysian Airlines and the Malaysian and Chinese embassies in Australia on March 31, and to the JACC on April 4.
"The company and its directors are surprised by the lack of response from the various authorities," GeoResonance said.
"This may be due to a lack of understanding of the company's technological capabilities, or the JACC is extremely busy, or the belief that the current search in the Southern Indian Ocean is the only plausible location of the wreckage."
The Australian-led search team said it was relying on information from satellite and other data to determine the missing aircraft's location and the location in the GeoResonance report was not within that search arc.
"The joint international team is satisfied that the final resting place of the missing aircraft is in the southerly portion of the search arc," it said.

Yep....they didn’t think of it, so they don’t want to be embarrassed by outsiders.
My first thought too. I would imagine someone will have to send something there anyway, as the families will demand it.
In fairness, that was the point “null and void” made in post #2.
NIH = Not Invented Here
...which I simply expanded on, so as to explain.
Apparently the Malaysians are still considering it.
Since it is already pinpointed then how hard can it be for the Malaysians to hire a contractor to send a UAV down there to check it out???
Bay of Bengal is where India has Space Launch site, Missile and Anti-Ballastic Missile Interceptor test site.
Parts more likely from these tests
Only way to know for sure is to take a little look-see.
Its also the general location where a Muslim woman reported seeing what appeared to be a downed aircraft the night of the disappearance. At the time she was on a flight back to Malaysia and didn’t know about the missing plane.
Testimony of mulsim women is inadmissible under sharia...
Wasn’t that report from a woman looking out the window at over 30,000 ft and seeing the crashed plane? Sounds plausible
Let’s see if the Malaysians are willing to pay for a little look see.
> A private company said it had found what it believes is wreckage of a plane in the Bay of Bengal that should be investigated as potential debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, but the possibility was dismissed by search coordinators.
IOW, ignored by the 100 percent unsuccessful search team.
At this point, what would be prudent to consider is....
Why would the ‘team’ NOT want to find the plane ?
Was there something in the cargo hold that all nations wanted destroyed ?
Was there something in the cargo hold that all nations wanted, and are secretly trying to find ?
What was in the cargo hold of that ship that had the two Navy Seals who supposedly died of a drug overdose ?
Was it on board the MH370 flight ?
‘They’ have been trying to direct the search from that area ever since it came out that that was the last direction shown on radar - first to the east, then when folks started looking toward the Bay of Bengal, new ‘evidence’ appeared showing it way to the south.
I think that woman saw that at about 2:00 in the afternoon which would have been 6 hours after the plane ran out of fuel and set down.
And at 30,000ft planes flying at 10,000ft often appear to be floating in the waters below.
But it’s still worth a look see —
c’mon Malaysia — pout up or shut up.

I don't see how they can avoid it politically.
Anonymous government source leaked photo . . . . more at 11:00 on CNN the Most Busted News Source.
I think what JACC are saying is that they trust the INMARSAT data and analyses.
And this sighting in the Bay of Bengal is not within the parameters of the INMARSAT 811 Arc and therefore not worth going after.
But no one is stopping the Malaysians — go for it.
Just yesterday the former PM was mocking the Inmarsat analyses and the south Indian Ocean search.
Well here is their opportunity — have at it

Look again - it should be pretty close to the first arc they put out before they got on message.
CNN desperately looking for another ship to report a whale fart in the Southern Indian Ocean.
Here an article about the lady who spotted it from a plane.
A ‘Joint Commission’ has spoken!
Brother, does you believe?
Meaning what??? that it flew in circles for 5 hours from 3:11 until 8:11 in the morning
The key arc is the 811 one and that is nowhere near the Bay of Bengal.
Gee, at this point they’ve looked in pretty much every place on Earth within a two thousand mile radius except Pakistan...
Oh, never mind.
Angus Houston, head of the search effort off Australia’s west coast, said on Wednesday that he was confident crews were already searching in the right place, but that Malaysia should investigate the GeoResonance report. He said he only discovered this week that the Bay of Bengal information had earlier been passed directly to Malaysia.
Now Malaysia is really on the spot — Angus Houston saying that Malaysia should go ahead and investigate
So I guess you missed this March 18 article:
Pakistan, India and Taliban deny knowledge of MH370
Aviation officials in Pakistan, India and Central Asia as well as Taliban militants said they knew nothing about the whereabouts of a missing Malaysian jetliner after the search for Flight MH370 extended into their territory.
Malaysia said it had sent diplomatic notes to all countries along an arc of northern and southern search corridors including India and Pakistan, requesting radar and satellite information as well as land, sea and air search operations.
Indian defence officials rejected the possibility of a plane flying for hours above the country undetected.
The idea that the plane flew through Indian airspace for several hours without anyone noticing is bizarre, a defence ministry official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
These are wild reports, without any basis, he said, adding a pilot would have to know the precise location of all Indian radars and surveillance systems to be able to get around them.
Pakistani officials said they had detected nothing suspicious in the skies after the plane vanished.
We have checked the radar recording for the period but found no clue about the ill-fated flight, the Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement.
Central Asian countries Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, at the northern end of the search arc, said no unidentified planes had entered their air space on March 8.
Even if all on-board equipment is switched off, it is impossible to fly through in a silent mode, the Kazakh Civil Aviation Committee said in a statement sent to Reuters.
There are also military bodies monitoring the countrys air space.
Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban in Afghanistan, who are seeking to oust foreign troops and set up an Islamic state, said the missing plane had nothing to do with them.
It happened outside Afghanistan and you can see that even countries with very advanced equipment and facilities cannot figure out where it went, he said. So we also do not have any information as it is an external issue.
Having lived, studied, and worked there, I’d have to answer you by expressing my impression that the word of Pakistani and/or Indian officials is worth about as much as a bucket of warm spit.
So then how do you feel about the word of Australian/US/British officials whose analyses concur with that warm spit???
When they find the airplane, I’ll let you know.
8:30 am I believe. So the real question is why is everyone in authority so adamant about not looking anywhere, but thousands of miles away from a possible siting? This would also fit with the fishermen comment about seeing a large plane pass low over them the night of the disappearance and the last known radar hit.
Who doesn’t want the plane found and why not?
It was 2:30 PM not 8:30 per the DM:
Re your other question, the ball is now in the Malaysians’ court:
Angus Houston, head of the search effort off Australias west coast, said on Wednesday that he was confident crews were already searching in the right place, but that Malaysia should investigate the GeoResonance report.
