Flight MH370: Chinese and Australian ships draw blank (objects recovered not related to MH370)
BBC ^ | 29 Mar 14 | BBC

Posted on 03/29/2014 10:52:44 AM PDT by xzins

A Chinese and an Australian ship have failed to identify remains from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight after their first day in a new search area.

The two ships retrieved objects from the Indian Ocean but none was confirmed to be from missing flight MH370, Australia's maritime authority said.

Chinese aircraft also flew over the area, north-east of the previous zone, and have spotted more objects.

The airliner disappeared on 8 March with 239 people on board.

Chinese patrol ship Haixun 01 and Australia's HMAS Success "reported they have retrieved a number of objects from the ocean but so far no objects confirmed to be related to MH370 have been recovered",

snip

Eight aircraft also took part in the operation. One Chinese plane reported spotting spotted three orange, white and red objects floating in the sea.

Some of the objects seen in the area have been very small, and officials cautioned that they may be sea junk.

Amsa said that "at least one distinctive fishing object has been identified".

Everyday CNN reports on “Objects” recovered from the Indian Ocean..they should go to Santa Monica Pier that place has “objects” every single day..either they have no idea where this plane is or they are giving these families the runaround..last night I heard that guy Hussein say that there is always a slight hope the passengers are alive..why even say that, to torture the families some more? Unless he has actual proof they are alive he shouldn’t even be saying that

And tomorrow, they’ll spot some more trash. And it will be the most “credible” evidence yet. And they’ll move the search area to a new spot 500 miles from the last spot. And they’ll find nothing.

My theory is that the closer you can get your search area to a populated land mass the more likely you’ll find debris you can announce as another “sighting of debris”.

I put in my two sense and decided because of the mass of it that it was debris from a tsunami. Which one?? Probably the really big one a few years back Indonesia??). I think as the ocean floor churned and released a whole bunch of cr**.

And CNN actually shows the trash being picked up by a net and they have to “Examine” it..seriously, if they spot something and it needs to be examined its NOT from the plane..doesn’t take a genius to figure out if a piece of the wreckage has been spotted or not

LOL!

Frankly, I’m still of the opinion that it’s in Pakistan; the last verified contact with the plane was when it turned northwest, and the rest of these are either “possible” or even “faint possible” contacts or projections of its location on the base of such possible contacts.

The fact that the Malaysian government recently mentioned that there is a chance the passengers may still be alive makes me think this search is all a giant red herring.

Hank Whitmore was great on Greta last night. He basically said, since we have no real data to justify searching in the south Indian Ocean anyway, let’s just move the search area off the coast of Kuala Lumpur and we can search right on the beach. Save everybody a lot of aggravation.

I suggest they head northwest and keep sailing until they run into a place that looks like Pakistan. Hunt around in the tribal areas. Look for an airport with a big hangar and armed guards around it. Or go look next to the Military Officers training school. That might prove successful again too. Bring a lunch as it might take a while.

Nothing like watching a bobber jiggle, pop down and up then slowly move off while disappearing...then after setting the hook the line breaks or pole or reel seizes up. Oh stories of attempts to net follow if one gets that far. - love it.

What makes me wonder about that is that both Pak and Iran have airlines with jet airliners. Pakistan International Airlines has it’s own 777s. Iran Air doesn’t, but has plenty of airliners both Boeing and Airbus. If they wanted to use one to attack something, they always had one available.

Since a 777 costs 250-300 million, it’s always possible they needed to replace a broken jet.

OTOH, any fleet in the world with 777s can now use one of them for any nefarious purpose so long as they destroy it in the process.
