Skip to comments.Finding lost Malaysia plane may be impossible: US official
Posted on 03/30/2014 11:08:33 PM PDT by conservative98
A US Navy official warned Sunday that finding the missing Malaysian jet may be impossible, as efforts to locate the plane intensified ahead of the expected failure of its black-box homing beacons.
It all depends on how effective we are at reducing that search area, Capt. Mark Matthews told reporters at Australias Stirling Naval Base near Perth.
Right now, the search area is basically the size of the Indian Ocean, which would take an untenable amount of time to search.
Its not over until CNN’s rating go back down.
With all of the gadgetry on that plane - and they still haven’t a clue
You know it’s impossible to find if you know that you are looking where it isn’t.
It’s impossible to find until Hussein’s IRANIAN hijackers finish loading it with radioactive material and crash it into NYC or Tel Aviv.
At that point, it becomes very easy to find b/c it just crashed on everybody’s head.
Hand us the murderer. Tell us the truth. Give us our relatives back, read one banner carried by the protesters.
The crowd of about 250 burst into applause when one woman denounced the government-owned Malaysia Airlines as criminal suspects.
For the next three weeks the lower east coast has no satellite in the air.
Everyone take care. Something is up.
Does Iran really have the technology to fish the plane out of 15,000 feet of water and make it flyable again? /s
The US steps in to make sure we are attacked

WTF? You mean *our* lower east coast? Thought you meant Israeli. Can you elaborate, or do you have a link for more info? Maybe I’m just out of touch but I haven’t seen a peep about this. Thanks!
Maybe there's a connection.
Really? And what of the pax?
I do think they know something - and brought all of their ambassadors home for a reason other than a pay dispute.
Told the pope he cannot visit next month after all.
See ... “Malaysia says theres sealed evidence on MH370 that cannot be made public” ... in the list ... :-) ...
Thank you for the many links.
It started from last Monday and runs through now. I think these are all the Freeper postings since then. I guess this story will finally die off in a short while.
What are our reconnaissance satellites doing up there? You would think they were up to the task of spotting Flight 370 and tracking it right to that airfield in Iran where it landed.
Oh sorry. I missed it.
Anything on land is findable but this plane is under water — a lot of it.
If it was in some mullah’s driveway in Pakistan the moment those engines were turned on they would “ping” and Inmarsat would paint them and find them. If they moved Inmarsat would know it. Big Mac’s groupies don’t think about that.
They need to assume a criminal mind not a suicidal one. I’m betting he may have tried a survivable crash closer to Indonesia perhaps just south of West Java.
They are assuming a 460 flight path — but they also need to develop a 400 one and perhaps a 350 one.
They also need to put a reward out on the plane so enterprising Indonesian fishermen will join in the search.
Israel didn’t shut them down ... read this ...
The Foreign Ministry’s workers union has called for a general strike Sunday as part of an ongoing labor dispute. All 103 of Israel’s embassies, consulates, and diplomatic delegations across the world will be closed, including the ministry’s headquarters in Jerusalem.
In addition to increasing pressure on the Finance Ministry, the workers union decided to escalate their struggle and have instructed the ministry’s employees to leave their workplaces and announce a general strike Sunday afternoon.
The workers will shut down the entire Foreign Ministry, as well as Israeli missions and embassies around the world, for the first time since the establishment of the State of Israel in an open-ended strike which could paralyze Israel’s diplomatic services.
While I am glad you post that list you do know that those articles are all also here too under Keyword:”mh370”.
I’ll include that link, too ... thanks ... :-)
Bottom line Their Dead Jim...
I know that is the published version.
Well, all I know is what I read in the papers.
September 30, 1923
It isn’t over because it isn’t where they are looking and they probably have a good idea where it is.
Good McInerney didn’t apologize.
Do you have the link where just after it disappeared Iran claimed we had kidnapped the plane?
Then a bit later Israeli specialists, three of them, suggested Iran had taken it.
I only started listing the links last Monday ...
Or maybe I read too much Victor Ostrovsky.
Since the “gadgets” were all turned off, it becomes a HUGE OCEAN, itsie-bitsie, teeny-weeny plane search. And the search area is full of man made garbage that looks like pieces of an aircraft from search aircraft and satellite imagery.
This is WORSE than a needle in a haystack search.
It wasn’t at all unusual in prior centuries for some 25 percent or so of ships to disappear without a trace. I wonder how many airliners have just disappeared without a trace?
Until it crosses the Israeli border at 550 MPH and the Iranian nuke detonates 10,000 feet above Tel Aviv, that is...
Thank you, gleeaikin, for the ping.
That's the real story even if they do find the plane at this point. They can lose a huge plane on a scheduled flight with hundreds of people on it, but are capable of reading every post you make, every phone call you take...they'll be watching you.
The U.S. Navy could have dropped sonobuoys from P-8's or the Australians from P-3's a week ago over the target areas for thousands of miles and picked up signals from those Dukane ULB's (pingers), or a single SURTASS ship could have patrolled the area and easily have picked up the signals from the CVR or DFDR.
I knew they would give it a few weeks and than state they will never find FLT370 publicly, because secretly they know exactly where that 777 is.
Apparently, they never went up. It was a lie.
