    Malaysia airlines plane may have crashed 239 people on board #17

    Breaking news

    Malaysia Airlines says it has lost contact with a plane travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board.

    The airline said in a statement that flight MH370 disappeared at 02:40 local time on Saturday (18:40 GMT on Friday).

    I'm praying the plane is found and people on the plane survive.

    The moderators have been wading in a pool of alerts this morning - and most are coming from this forum. I wanted to review some of the issues that happened yesterday because if the issues continue, some of our members are going to find themselves on the outside looking in.

    - Discuss the topic and not each other. If you have a problem with a fellow poster, alert via the little red triangle in the upper corner of the post and the mods will review privately

    - Limit the one liners. A little humor while waiting is okay, but when it goes on and on then it falls into being "off topic" which is a forum violation. And make sure you're not poking fun at this tragedy. Not funny.

    - The political comments need to go in the Political Pavilion. Also, while it's a good thing to be proud of your own country, it's not good to make fun of other countries. Websleuths is an international community and we think each person is just as important as the next. We are proud to have all of you as members.

    If you have any questions, don't be afraid to privately contact the moderator of your choice. First you might want to review our Rules forum. Your answer can probably be found there --->The Rules - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    THE captain of the Australian Navy vessel leading the on-water hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight has revealed the pieces of debris being sought are so small they cannot be picked on the ship’s radar.

    the video posted in the last thread of a supposed SAR ship in the indian ocean was not accurate. it was taken in the northern atlantic mid-january 2013. even global news here in canada fell for it and has been broadcasting it all day. why they didn't properly vet it is beyond me. it was so easy to do! -- smh

    here is the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aow2ErSP3dQ

    where the vessel is currently: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/det.../vessel:VENERE

    Worth reading - very interesting!

    http://m.smh.com.au/world/search-for...327-zqnme.html


    Beijing: The frantic hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been, in one way, a nearly miraculous display of international collaboration: Twenty-six nations, many of them rivals, have opened up their territorial waters and airspace or have contributed closely held technology and surveillance data to a search that has riveted the world.

    That extraordinary cooperation has been instrumental in narrowing the search to a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean this week. But the effort has also underscored the limits of trust among powers like China, Malaysia, the United States, India and Thailand, all of which bring their own, often competing, strategic interests to bear.

    A THAI satellite has reportedly detected at least 300 objects near the search area for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

    Excellent article about the search area:

    http://www.foreignpolicy.com/article...k_indian_ocean

    Storms are the rule rather than the exception in this part of the world, plagued by the Roaring Forties -- the never-ending winds that howl around 40 degrees latitude south. The weather, combined with the fact that this zone, just north of Antarctica, is the only place where water can flow around the globe without hitting land, means that the waves are among the highest in the world. (Surfing is inadvisable.) That these are some of the deepest parts of the Indian Ocean, with a rugged and volcanic ocean floor, decreases the likelihood that the black boxes would be retrievable. All of which adds up to an almost impossible race against time: Those black boxes have limited battery life and will likely stop transmitting around April 7.

    Bringing this post over from previous thread...

    I have absolutely no idea why I’m under that impression though, and at this point, it’s completely possible that I dreamed that up.

    Mr Hussein Malaysia’s Defence and acting Transport Minister Mr Hussein said he presumed that any debris from the missing plane would be brought to Australia and he suggested that it would fall to Australia as well to investigate.

    However under ICAO laws, if the plane crashed in international waters, the investigation is the responsibility of the country of the carrier

    The search was called off later in the day due to poor weather.

    "All planes are returning to Perth and ships are leaving search area," the Australian Maritime Safety Authority tweeted.

    However, HMAS Success captain Alison Norris says the ship is continuing to search for any debris.

    She says although weather conditions are poor, she has not received any instructions to withdraw from the search.

    "I don't know, and I have not been advised of the search being called off, and I am continuing to conduct the search pattern in the search area as directed by AMSA," she said.

    It is not known when the full search will resume.

    Also...

    Bad weather has halted the southern Indian Ocean search for a potential debris field from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370

    AMSA had predicted bad weather in the search area this afternoon, with low visibility and turbulent winds, and the search has now been suspended.

    "All planes are returning to Perth and ships are leaving search area," AMSA tweeted.

    However, HMAS Success captain Alison Norris says the ship is continuing to search for any debris
