CANBERRA, Australia (AP) Investigators searching for the missing Malaysian jet have ruled out an area where acoustic signals were detected as the final resting place of the plane after an unmanned submersible found no trace of it, the Australian agency coordinating the hunt said Thursday.
The U.S. Navy's Bluefin 21 had finished its final underwater mission in the southern Indian Ocean on Wednesday after scouring 850 square kilometers (330 square miles), the Joint Agency Coordination Center said.
"The area can now be discounted as the final resting place" of the missing plane, the center said in a statement.
The underwater search for the airliner, which vanished March 8 with 239 people on board en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, will be suspended for a couple months until while new, more powerful sonar equipment is brought in to search a much wider area of 56,000 square kilometers (21,600 sq. miles), based on analysis of satellite data of the plane's most likely course, the center said.
That analysis has led authorities to believe that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 diverted sharply from its flight path and flew south to the Indian Ocean. But not a single piece of the missing Boeing 777 has been found in one of aviation's most baffling mysteries.
The news comes after the U.S. Navy on Thursday dismissed an American expert's reported comments that acoustic "pings" heard in April did not come from the jet's black boxes.

And then they found nothing. Yet.
Must be that black hole thing.
I’m not saying it was the same thing as The Manhattan Project, with sailors (reportedly) melting and merging into the decks of their ship, but you sure do have to wonder.
Art Bell fans know what I’m talking about. Still classified.
They had guys melted into the deck of the ship in the movie “The Philadelphia Experiment”.
They’ll find it after they abandon their erroneous assumptions — like that the plane was flying itself — on autopilot — and then ran out of fuel — and then crashed into the choppy waters a thousand miles from a port.
The possibility that it really happened is both horrible and fascinating. The part that gets me most is imagining what those guys must have been thinking or heaving forbid feeling, when the molecules of their bodies just sort of ‘Jambaylayaed’ with the molecules of the steel deck or the mast, or the unraveled hoses made of canvass. If it happened, I hope they quickly lost all physical and mental awareness. We won’t even dip out toe into the deep questions of ‘time transference’.
You mean this:
The Philadelphia Experiment
The story is thought to be a hoax. The U.S. Navy maintains that no such experiment was ever conducted, and details of the story contradict well-established facts about the Eldridge itself, as well as commonly accepted physics.
Not Manhattan project, that was da bomb! The Philadelphia experiment...
There were 2, not 1, likely courses. Plenty of areas from Bangladesh to Pakistan, for an aircraft to disappear. Plus routes that would have the aircraft appear to air defense ... and thus shoot down possibilities.
Burma, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Red China, Nepal ... plenty of routes by which to attempt to fly undetected, plenty of mountains thru which to pass ... or fail.
Until some wreckage is found, I’m believing the plane was stolen and by sophisticated means.
Perhaps they’ll find wreckage. If and when they do, OK.
YOU ARE COMPLETELY CORRECT! How could I forget that phrase, ‘The Philadelphia experiment’? That had nothing to do with Disco Music in the 70’s, I’ll tell you that.
I still think it will be used as a giant M180 cratering charge to take out the Three Gorges Dam, in support of the Uyghars.
