'Pings' may NOT have been from MH370 after all: Doubts grow over signals detected during search ...
The Daily Mail Online ^ | May 19, 2014 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 05/20/2014 6:31:56 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

Audio recordings of the 'ping' signals believed to have come from the black box of Flight MH370 will now not be released as doubt grows over whether they are connected with the missing plane.

The Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) headed by Angus Houston told the Herald Sun that the search group's original confidence the four accoustic 'ping' signals were from the plane had waned and the recordings would not be made public.

The decision is a blow to the families of some of the MH370 passengers who issued a plea earlier this month to make the recordings public.

A group of families called Voice370 released a statement saying, 'We implore the Malaysian government to share and release the raw Inmarsat satellite engine ping data for 9MMRO (every ping from Friday, March 7 12:00 until the final signal was received globally) so that it can be subject to broader analysis by relevant experts.

This is a departure from Retired Air Chief Marshall Houston's certainty last month that the ping recordings were potentially from the missing plane....

MH370 was scheduled to land in China.
The only ship that heard the pings off Australia was Chinese.
The recording of the pings will NOT be released.
Look for the MH370 in China.

Don’t think that is true.

There were reoorts of the Aussie ship getting multiple signals.

This plane was remotely hijacked. Boeing has a patent on software to take over command of inflight Boeing aircraft.

I still say they will find it within a few miles of where it was last heard from. I believe the pilot tried to hand fly it at FL450 as a personal challenge. As expected, he lost control and the plane disintegrated.

But the transponder could not be switched off remotely — it had to have been done by the hand of the pilot.

“Boeing has a patent on software to take over command of inflight Boeing aircraft.

Boeing has lots of similar patents but none ever implemented. Companies do that. Remote control has been around for decades.

There are no external connections to the flight management computers. It is physically impossible to remote hijack that plane.

What are you talking about???

If the transponder was turned off by the hand of the pilot then it wasn’t done remotely as you claimed earlier.

Pings NOT from MH370, DUH!

several residents of Kuda Huvadhoo (an island in the Maldives)told Haveeru on Tuesday that they saw a “low flying jumbo jet” at around 6:15am on March 8.

They said that it was a white aircraft, with red stripes across it – which is what the Malaysia Airlines flights typically look like.

Eyewitnesses from the Kuda Huvadhoo concurred that the aeroplane was travelling North to South-East, towards the Southern tip of the Maldives – Addu. They also noted the incredibly loud noise that the flight made when it flew over the island.

“I’ve never seen a jet flying so low over our island before. We’ve seen seaplanes, but I’m sure that this was not one of those. I could even make out the doors on the plane clearly,” said an eyewitness.

“It’s not just me either, several other residents have reported seeing the exact same thing. Some people got out of their houses to see what was causing the tremendous noise too.”

A local aviation expert told Haveeru that it is “likely” for MH370 to have flown over the Maldives. The possibility of any aircraft flying over the island at the reported time is extremely low, the expert added.

The Malay Mail Online reported, “The simulation programmes are based on runways at the Male International Airport in Maldives, an airport owned by the United States (Diego Garcia), and three other runways in India and Sri Lanka....”

No Malaysian military jets were scrambled — and that is part of the scandal rocking Malaysia.

According to an article yesterday the Aussies are searching for the plane without having in their hands the raw data from Inmarsat.

How do they do that???

The media have totally worn me out on the subject of Flt 370. I feel for the people, but it may be years before anything is found, and maybe never.

Meantime, I want some decent coverage on Benghazi, IRS, VA, etc.

I loathe the media and despise most of Congress, the Executive branch and most of the judiciary. It is all about them! We are just dragged along kicking and screaming to cough up the money for them to spend.

This just in — finally:

MH370 raw satellite data to be publicized after months of waiting

http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/20/world/asia/malaysia-missing-plane/index.html

But CNN aviation analyst Jeff Wise said “the box is going to open” when the data gets publicized.

“It could produce more theories. It will probably cancel out a lot of theories,” he said.

Either way, the release will hopefully give “a much better understanding of what’s been going on all this time.”

Who better to do the initial calculations than Inmarsat.
I am surprised however the calculations weren't checked by an outside source, before the Australians committed so much search effort in that area.

Remember us Americans are outsiders in this fiasco.
Flight 370 is not an American owned plane,from an American airline flying American passengers to or from an American city.

We can't expect an American approach to this problem.
And we certainly aren't getting one. -Tom

That theory doesn’t hold up to any logic.

It landed somewhere, had to of.

I think that the only reason the US got involved in this was because of early efforts on the part of the Malaysians to try to blame Boeing for its disappearance.

Also our airlines have hundreds of these Boeing 777s in use, and we would be interested in whether the 777 had some kind of vulnerability. - Tom

Uncle Chip, Thanks for posting link to Four Corners Investigative Documentary Video - Lost Flight MH370. Worth watching.

Interviews include brother-in-law of pilot who speaks on behalf of pilots wife, dismissing marital problems as non-existent - pilot's wife routinely left marital home to stay with sons when pilot was working. At 18:53 mark the BiL is asked if the pilot was having an affair as reported in tabloids.

I don’t understand why a person would be snarky when nobody knows what’s going on, or refuse to think there might be some nefarious reason as to why it’s missing.
