Could be a gesture to the grieving families? Why would the PM wade into this now?

An Australian air force search plane has spotted two objects in the Indian Ocean while searching for missing flight MH370. Flight Lieutenant Captain Josh Williams, Royal Australia Air Force said: “It’s been the first time we’ve actually certified that we’ve seen something and got photographs, using our camera operator up the front, of anything in the area.”

Yeah... this could be another dead end.

"However he could not verify that these are objects rated to the missing MH370. "All we provide is the possibility that they are [MH370 debris], as well as a location, a time and we mark those objects, that's all we can provide. The analysis will be left to the photographers once we land, as well as HMAS Success, once she steams into the area and hopefully retrieves some of these objects."

Thanks for the heads up —

More than likely debris from the 777 has been found and one would expect the notification to be made in this way with the families first.

Would be nice if they told the families something. Cruel to leave them in the dark for so long.

I’m sure certain individuals, agencies and governments knew what happened to the plane long before now, but they were too busy protecting and advancing some sort of agenda.

I dunno. Every little factoid and rumor has been leaked and then spread about at light speed. I am going to predict this will be same stuff, different pile. I hope I am wrong.

Thanks for the thread.

Considering the source...I may just call BS=CNN.

Call me a cynic, but I see anything out of those characters and I immediately go looking for confirmation.

...nope, nada, zilch.

...d’ya suppose somebody woke up after a long weekend partying and remembered he was supposed to send something to his editor???

According to what Israeli Intelligence said, they will be surprised, too. They said that this missing aircraft had “Iran’s fingerprints all over it”.

I hope these families finally get some kind of real news, though it’s going to devastate them. Not knowing anything has to be horrifying!

I’ll be watching this thread for more news. :)

Why would they fly the families to see the debris? I my loved one was on that plane the last thing I would want to see was the wreckage of the plane.

The following SMS message has been sent to relatives: “Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia’s Prime Minister, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean.”

It is never good form or public relations to gather people publicly and say basically nothing. They have nothing to offer publicly. Turd-world idiots.

Flying the plane to Pakistan and landing the plane in Pakistan completely unnoticed by anyone anywhere is simply unbelievable.

Well ... we’ll see ... I’ve got it on now. I heard one of the reporters say that they’ve called the families together so that they get “this news” from the Malaysian government, instead of seeing it “on the news”.

If it’s that early in the process, I’m guessing that they families are going to be told ONLY sparse details of whatever the news is. We may not hear really that much - except - “We ‘may’ have found something.

It’s starting now.
