Skip to comments.Navy official: Pings not thought to be from Flight 370's black boxes
Posted on 05/28/2014 7:43:21 PM PDT by BenLurkin
The four acoustic pings at the center of the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 for the past seven weeks are no longer believed to have come from the plane's black boxes, a U.S. Navy official told CNN.
The acknowledgment came Wednesday as searchers wrapped up the first phase of their effort, having scanned 329 square miles of southern Indian Ocean floor without finding any wreckage from the Boeing 777-200.
Authorities now almost universally believe the pings did not come from the onboard data or cockpit voice recorders, but instead came from some other man-made source unrelated to the jetliner that disappeared on March 8, according to Michael Dean, the Navy's deputy director of ocean engineering.

That plane and the one from 2006 (that the media lost interest in about 10 minutes after it happened!) were hi-jacked and are in the ME somewhere, being retro-fitted for a literal, ‘Hell On Earth’ here in the USA at a future date.
Prepare appropriately, as in kiss your loved ones goodbye and prepare to meet your Maker.
There is no doubt in my military mind that 9/11 is going to be repeated. And repeated. And repeated.
And we will never learn until America is a Third-World hellhole and a constant Ground Zero.
Other than that, Life Is Good! *SMIRK*
“some other man-made source “
It wasn’t my IPhone.
many types of equipment.
and start to oscillate.
Let the Israelis deal with it now.
A wayward piece of equipment of a nearby CNN camera crew would still be "related" to the jetliner...
So then will they go back and spend the next year searching the very same waters where they now know those pings didn’t come from???
The pings are coming from a pirate ship sunk in the 18th Century. CNN is on the case.
...And other Navy sources disagreed with his assessment. Let’s send them all to their rooms and not let them out until they come to some agreement.
I am still very concerned this plane has not been found.
In other words they do not have a clue where that plane is.
Or they do know, but they don’t want anyone to find out.
The “information” we have on MH370 is fraught with lies, lies, and more lies.
That’s true for a lot of news stories. It’s just more obvious here.
Pass the tin foil will ya?
With each passing day, it seems less and less likely that the plane actually crashed in the water. Like you say, something would have been found. There is no precedent for anything close to this timescale passing on a plane of this size without some trace.
Now, its not the first time a jet has vanished. There was that unexpected takeoff from an airport in Angola that was never found, but that plane had no passengers. This one was full of them.
I get that the CNN coverage was ridiculous and there isn’t a whole lot of new information, but people seem to have totally forgotten about the story which is arguably I’d say still the biggest story out there, globally speaking. Russian incursions and incompetence at the VA are important, but this is the biggest conundrum in the history of aviation. Very frustrating to have no information at this point, even more so for the family members.
Lets say that “whatever” happened and somehow the pilot (or autopilot) brought this 777 down in a perfect landing on the sea somewhere...just like Sculley did in the Hudson. Well then the people would get out...and while I’m skeptical as the seat cushions really being effective life preservers...you know damned well some folks would grab their bags (bags float)...makes no sense. People don’t just die and leave no traces. Not 200+.
So even if it crashed hard (or was shot down), or landed softly...there would be some evidence on the surface.
...fairly easily identifiable evidence...if you are looking in the right place.
I've flown across the big pond at least 50 times. Every seat cushion on that plane is an easily detachable flotation device......
And not one of them found anywhere floating in the water.....
It does make a person wonder if they wanted to kill everyone or if they wanted the plane.
still..how is it that the debris did not float? I think they landed someplace and have these poor people hostage.
Yes they do; nothing came off the U.S. Airways plane that landed in the Hudson.
Judging by your handle, you would know — what’s the likelihood of spotting debris? Didn’t it go down in open sea? The ocean is an awful big place.
Its probably in Iran or Pakistan being retrofitted as a flying bomb.
It is right where our navy put it.
I think I need more tinfoil.
I seem to remember reading a few years ago that our Navy had “wired” a microphone grid spanning all the Oceans so we could track Soviet subs. This network should nave heard the plane impact the Ocean where ever it came down and any pings from it as well.
I know it sounds crazy, but so did the Glomar Explorer . . .
This network should have heard something and triangulated the sound to a specific location.
Sculley...an actual hero pilot...landed his plane in a virtual Mill-pond with rescue vessels all around.
Note: the Hudson is a river...slow moving at that...it’s not an ocean.
Truth is...you do the same that Sculley did and you do it 100 miles away from the coast of Belize...and all those “wing walkers” go into the water. Between the drownings and the sharks you probably lose 40-50% of your passengers.
Yep...much more important than my previous post...and lets remember - a 777 is a MUCH larger airplane.
You do understand that everyone onboard except the pilot were asphyxiated within the first 20 minutes of the hijacking, don’t you???
After hitting the water there would have been no departure from the plane.
Top men are on it. Top men.
Pings from another man-made source...like the CIA? Talk about engineered misdirection...I’m betting that plane is thousands of miles from where they are looking.
