Hope so too, the truth needs to be found out.

Heard some type of storm was a concern the last few days for this time period.

Search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 suspended after confirmation it went down in Indian Ocean via News.com.au

"THE Australian Maritime Safety Authority has suspended the air and sea search for MH370 today due to bad weather.

“Due to rough seas, HMAS Success departed the search area early this morning and is now in transit south of the search area until seas abate. A sea state ranging between 7 to 8 is forecast today with waves up to two metres and an associated swell of up to four metres,” it said in an update.

“The area is also forecast to experience strong gale force winds of up to 80km/h, periods of heavy rain, and low cloud with a ceiling between 200 and 500 feet.”

AMSA said conducting the search in such conditions would be hazardous and pose a risk to crews.

“AMSA has consulted with the Bureau of Meteorology and weather conditions are expected to improve in the search area in the evening and over the next few days. Search operations are expected to resume tomorrow, if weather conditions permit.”

Any country's submarine anywhere near this area would have certainly heard pings from the black box of a downed commercial jet, and presumably would have reported it.

How can you be so sure? How loud is the ping? What are the ocean conditions like?

Is the Britis satalitte company who used this new never before used configuration happen to be located on Diego Garcia which also just happens to be a CIA base?

They are not in Diego Garcia but are instead located in the United Kingdom. And before you ask, the satellite that they used is not located in Diego Garcia either.

Thanks for the information. It was suggested on another thread that the satalitte belonged to the US Is that true? A British company using an American satalitte?

The latest from General McInerny, for those of us who wanted to hear from him.

Seems the plots thickens! Only 7 minutes of your time, and hopefully will answer some of the General’s detractors on the thread.

You do realize the General had sources to back up his claims but due to possible military actions ongoing unbeknownst to him, he could not reveal much. Or maybe his whole presence and theory was meant to distract those that may have the plane.

What is interesting is what this might reveal about the present state of mind of some of our military leaders, who could be deliberately leaking to General McInerny important info, and who do not want to draw unwanted attention to themselves.

It will be interesting to see how all this plays out. The date, May 2nd, that McInerny mentioned in the video I posted gives me pause.

The possibility that the Pakis have something in the works should be taken seriously.

John Bolton brought up a good point, do we really trust what the Malaysians are saying now? They could be practicing damage control.

Interesting thing is you bring up Boeing and General McInerny. I heard him speaking, I think it was on Hannity a couple of days after the plane was lost, and he said he had multiple trusted sources independent of each other. He let it slip that insiders at Boeing were some of them, and then said he couldn't say more. I know everything looks southern route, crashed off Australia, but I don't think Mcinerny is crazy or would risk his reputation so something is still very strange.

Watch the video I posted a few posts back, then get back to us with your take on it.

I think we should take him more seriously than some of the posters here. While it is possible that he is being fed “disinfo”, I would think his years of experience, not to mention his trusted sources, would mitigate in his favor.

And, in case you have trouble with the link working, I found it here - maybe a dozen headlines down from the top at the moment, so if the below doesn’t work, go to the top and work your way down till you find it.

Some really interesting stuff in a relatively short video.

I watched the video, and it brought up a point I had thought of but didn’t mention. The fact that we really aren’t sending the amount of assets to the area that you would think we should. I would want to find that black box before the Chinese! He mentions the plane with the extended flying time and SARS capability that is now at work in the middle east, and the LEO satellites that should have picked up a plane headed south over the Indian ocean.

He makes a compelling case and does not seem crazy or like he’s being manipulated. Everybody should watch the video, no matter where the plane is.

If they ever find the black box it was probably planted here.

I'd be curious - who or what was on that plane.

I listened to him and at one point he cites Inmarsat data to back up one of his points.

So is he saying that Inmarsat is lying??? or just lying when they disagree with him???

If the plane at 8:11 was along that Inmarsat Arc of the Last Ping, then how is it possible for it to be in Pakistan???

At no time has he ever said that the plane was seen by witnesses or tracked there by technological know how — we’re just supposed to believe it’s there because the Pakistanis are Muslims and bad people.

All he says is that because it’s missing it’s in Pakistan and the flight crew did it.

Is that the new rule now — if something is missing it’s in Pakistan.

I’ll let my neighbor know — his bike is missing.

I am now re-watching it again.

General McInerny mentions Immarsat data to support the idea that MH370 could have evaded detection by “shadowing” Singapore’s flight 68, heading north across India, hiding from their sleepy radar overnight crew .

Start watching at about 4:10 minutes, or a bit before, and you will hear him explain this clearly. Maybe re-play it until you understand what he is saying.

Listen, Uncle Chip. I have no agenda here, other than wanting the truth. You are free, at least at the moment, to make up your own mind about who you choose to trust. It is one of the nice privileges we used to enjoy when we were a free country.

I find your comment about your neighbor’s missing bike ridiculous, but discountable , if it is indicative of the way you analyze information.

Shall I put you down in the “if the .gov says it, it must be true” camp. If so, shame on you for being so gullible.

Get your facts straight.

The ".gov" did not find the likely crash site. That was done by those in private industry -- by scientists at Inmarsat and Boeing operating with verifiable data and well-known scientific principles.

It's the General that you blindly trust who has worked for ".gov" all his life. So who is really gullible here.

but an electrical fire that disabled ACARS and the transponder, and generated CO or some other toxic substance before burning out could do it.

How would the fire have known when to go out, such as to leave the plane in the air until 0811+ Kuala Lumpur time?

That's because the plane is on Ile Amsterdam, a bit scrapped up by a rough landing.

I never said I agreed with General McInerny, I said he raised some pretty good points. It's not in this interview but he has said he has sources within Boeing and the US military. He said there are others that he wouldn't reveal at this time.

Another thing I find very strange is the actions of the Chinese. I may be wrong but I never remember China broadcasting people screaming and sobbing and blaming Malaysia for murder while praising communism and socialism. The Chinese tend to keep a lid on such outbursts where they are involved in any way. Of course they hate Malaysia. But it almost seems as if they're exploiting their own citizens for some kind of gain or to hide something.

I actually spoke with a 777 Pilot, who is in no way associated with the search to be clear, that said he spent the afternoon and evening reading everything that has been released and listened to the statement put out. He said unless there is much more information that is being withheld, he's not understanding how they've reached there conclusion.

We'll see what comes out in the next few days.

And, if Gen MCInerny is proved wrong based on his sources, I still give him credit for sticking his neck out based on those he believed. His reputation will be damaged, but if he hadn't of said anything and his theory was correct, it could have been much worse. He took on that burden. Just think of those that knew of 9/11 beforehand. If just one had spoken up...

“how would the fire have known when to go out”

I have no idea. Whatever the facts turn out to be, presuming the plane is in the water, something unusual happened.

Thanks for the information. It was suggested on another thread that the satalitte belonged to the US Is that true? A British company using an American satalitte?

I believe it belongs to the company. But even if it doesn't companies will sell time on their satellites to other companies.

Aircraft don’t have ELT like boats. The ELT will only transmit a signal if its not underwater and it can be picked up on Guard on any radio. You are thinking EPIRB which is satellite based.

Aircraft do have one or more ELT's. Life rafts from airliners also have ELTs. Even if an airliner went in for its one water landing, it would have gotten off several sweeps before it went under and it's ELT would no longer be able to be received.

I've been a member of the Civil Air Patrol, where we were sent out on SAR missions based on satellite reception of aircraft ELT signals.

General aviation may have satellite ELTs but those are not much use under water. Same same for any on a life raft.

Nice of her to give credit where it's due to Dr RJP who created the video after which our resident Document Fraud Examiner named his Vanity Post:

Mal and Val - not Ann and the Old Man. Video

Aha. You’ve been spending time reading about that subset of ‘birtherism’ known as the Worldwide Five-Plus-Decades-Old Mother-of-All-Conspiracies Mal-Val-Unified-Field-Theory haven’t you? I guarantee, the wildest MH370 theory can’t hold a distant candle to Mal-Valism. They’re not even in the same league.

Pity she didn't have the courtesy to name him, or provide a link. So I won't either.
