SYDNEY—The search for Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU 0.00% Flight 370 might be delayed up to six weeks by negotiations with civilian contractors that have equipment that can scan deep trenches in the southern Indian Ocean, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

Think of all the logistic maneuvers that can be accomplished during this long, long “search”.

Yeah, um... six weeks really matters little at this point. All that's left is solving the mystery, and that could be years away, if ever.

The MSM just needs some big headlines that aren't associated with this White House's massive failures and lies and crimes.

My company manufactures sensors used in undersea mapping for the oil industry. We just received an unexpectedly large, rush order for these devices. We think there may be a connection.

Could be. Could be something else.

Sounds like your company should ramp up production ASAP.

Officials on Friday predicted the search may take up to 12 months...

What a Relief, dudes!!!! For a minute there, I was totally a-scared that I might not know exactly what happened by 5/1/15.

I’m still intrigued by the little bit of news that slipped out yesterday, which said that the supposed cockpit voice recording provided by Malaysia had been altered - in four different places.

Malaysia, I think, knows perfectly well what happened to this plane. The only question is why they want to hide it. Now, of course, they’re in so deep in lies that they can’t possibly backtrack. But why they did so in the first place is more than a little puzzling.

Think I heard something like that as well.

For the past couple of decades or more, I've learned to be wary of initial news reports. Sometimes, it's best to wait a while and see what happens before jumping too quickly on the bandwagon.

Big meeting next week:

Next week, international aviation experts and investigators are planning to meet privately in Canberra in an attempt to further refine estimates of where the plane likely crashed, according to a person familiar with the investigation. The experts, including a panel of air-crash investigators and officials from Boeing Co. and satellite operator Inmarsat PLC, will collectively examine closely guarded military radar data to see whether any new conclusions can be drawn, the person said.

According to the maps released Thursday, investigators calculated the probable area where the plane ran out of fuel based on speeds ranging from about 323 knots to 350 knots. Depending on altitude, that difference could amount to as much as a 716-nautical-mile gap between the “highest-probability area” for wreckage, versus the “lowest” and “mid-probability” areas.

We build to order, but the orders are impressive.

I think you have the names wrong. Try thinking China, USA and Russia telling Malaysia what to say and when to say it.

No, I think if you look at it, you’ll see that Malaysia started to mislead from the very beginning. Starting with their failure to respond to messages from Vietnam about 20 minutes after the plane was supposedly handed off saying that it had never entered their airspace and there was no radar trace of it.
