    " So what do we know about the missing flight?

    Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, also marketed as China Southern Airlines flight 748, went missing over the South China Sea on Saturday morning local time.
    The Boeing 777-200ER was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers and 12 crew members.
    The flight departed at 00:41 MST on the 8th of March and air traffic control lost contact at 01:30 MST as it flew over the Gulf of Thailand. It was cruising at 35,000 feet and the skies were clear.
    No distress signal was deployed."

    Frequently asked questions

    Last update 05 June 2014

    How do you know MH370 is in the southern Indian Ocean?

    All the evidence—based on independent analysis of satellite, radar and aircraft performance data from many international experts—indicates the aircraft entered the sea close to a long but narrow arc in the southern Indian Ocean. This arc has been the focus of the search efforts since late March. All future search operations will continue to take place in localised areas of the arc.

    Why is the seventh satellite ‘handshake’ or arc so important?

    The seventh handshake was the last communications MH370 had with the satellite. The signal was a logon request from the aircraft. This is consistent with the satellite communication equipment on the aircraft powering up following a power interruption. The interruption in electrical supply is highly likely to have been caused by fuel exhaustion. In other words, we are confident the seventh handshake represents the area where the aircraft ran out of fuel before entering the ocean.

    Has the search been suspended?

    No. The ATSB is leading the continuing underwater search for MH370.

    The current phase of the search operation involves three major stages:
    •reviewing all existing information and analysis to define a search zone of up to 60,000 square kilometres along the arc in the southern Indian Ocean
    •conducting a bathymetric survey to map the sea floor in the defined search area (underway)
    •contracting the specialist services required for a comprehensive search of the sea floor in that area (search to begin in August 2014).

    How long will the current underwater search take?

    It is expected that the underwater search of a defined 60,000 square kilometre zone will take up to 12 months to complete, although this will depend on such factors as weather conditions.

    Who is analysing the satellite communications data?

    This work is being performed both independently and collaboratively by an international satellite communications group formed early in this search—this comprises staff from technical organisations and accident investigation agencies in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. This group is continuing to review and refine the satellite, radar and aircraft performance data to determine the most probable area where the aircraft entered the water.

    NZ man loses contract after MH370 email

    Following the publication of his email, name and place of work, the rig operator, Idemitsu, and McKay's contractor and rig owner, Songa Offshore, were inundated with inquiries that blocked their communications, McKay said.

    "This became intolerable for them and I was removed from the rig and not invited back."

    McKay said he was paid up until the end of his hitch, or work period, but released from the rig five days early.

    MH370 Families Seek $5 Million for Reward and Investigation

    Family members of Flight 370 passengers said Sunday that they are seeking to raise $5 million for a reward and private investigation leading to discovery of what happened to the missing jet and the 239 people on board.

    The Reward MH370 project aims “to encourage a whistle blower to come forward” with information about the jet’s fate, a statement issued by five family members said.

    Project leader Ethan Hunt said the effort was being launched Sunday on the fund-raising website **************, three months after the Boeing 777 disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing...

    MH370 families seek $5 million for investigation, 'whistle blower' reward

    By Faith Karimi and Saima Mohsin, CNN

    updated 8:06 AM EDT, Sun June 8, 2014

    (CNN) -- Three months to the day after a Malaysian jetliner vanished, relatives of those aboard are set to launch an effort Sunday to raise $5 million for investigations and a "whistle blower" reward.

    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared on March 8 with 239 people aboard.

    A multinational effort to scour the choppy waters of the southern Indian Ocean has turned up no signs of the jetliner.

    After weeks of grueling underwater searches, authorities said the four acoustic pings used to narrow down the location are no longer believed to be from the plane's onboard data or cockpit voice recorders. The underwater search was postponed in late May.

    But relatives demanded answers, prompting the Reward MH370 fundraiser. It is expected to launch on the crowdsourcing website Indiegogo...

    No. They have said time and again that it was a deliberate act. Not malfunction. Not fire.

    The team investigating MH370's disappearance believed no malfunction or fire was capable of causing the aircraft's unusual flight, it reported today.

    "Nor would the disabling of the aircraft's communication system cause MH370 to veer wildly off course on a seven hour silent flight into the sea," the English daily said.

    "On the weekend the families of the MH370 crew came together to salute and mourn their loved ones at a special tribute dinner in Kuala Lumpur organised by the National Union of Flight Attendants.

    The 10 crew members on board were hailed as the Heroes of Flight MH370.

    Monday marks 94 days since the Boeing 777-200, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, diverted radically from its flight path ….."

    Missing Malaysia plane: MH370 search zone could change, as delegation heads to Canberra, Beijing

    June 09, 2014 8:46PM

    THE search for missing Flight MH370 could take a turn with a new location, as Malaysia plans to send a team to Australia to finalise the next search phase.

    Malaysia Deputy Communications Minister Jailani Johari confirmed today that teams from Australia and Malaysia are still in the process of exchanging notes with Inmarsat on satellite data, and a Malaysian delegation will be coming to Australia on Tuesday.

    He said the meeting in Canberra would ensure all parties involved in the search “were on the same page”.

    The delegation will then be heading to Beijing to update Chinese authorities about the search.

    Malaysia, Aust to share MH370 search costs

    June 09, 2014 8:58PM


    MALAYSIA and Australia will share the cost of the next phase of the search for a Malaysian Airlines plane that went missing more than three months ago, a senior official says.

    "Costs will be shared 50-50 between Malaysia and Australia," deputy defence minister Abdul Rahim Bakri said, adding that there were no figures yet for how much they would have to spend.

    The Wall Street Journal says that the place where MH370 turned south may be revised a bit, and the article explains how the US, Australia, Boeing, and experts from other countries are trying to figure out where to search next.

    Sounds as though the search could go further south and west.

    MH370 families will meet with Prime Minister Najib Razak

    June 09, 2014

    MALAYSIAN leaders, including the Prime Minister, have promised to meet with grieving families of the passengers on board MH370.

    The pledge comes as Malaysian officials travel to Canberra on Tuesday to meet with

    Government officials and hear the results of detailed analysis of the search area and satellite analysis.

    Mr Jailani told a press briefing in Kuala Lumpur on Monday that the meeting with the Prime

    Minister and the families will be “arranged in due time”.

    “We give our full assurance to the next of kins, wherever they may be, that we remain fully

    committed in our search for their loved ones,” Mr Jailani said.

    “We will continue with the search operations until we have fully covered the search area. We will strive to explore all possible options in finding MH370.”

    There is a video done by some family members holding up written cards
    that offer a reward to a whistleblower ... "Reward MH370"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8smuq4qWbc

    The committee is made up of 7 people
    - 2 fundraisers
    - 5 family representatives.

    I noticed these families represented:
    France - Wattrelo
    India - Sharseth
    Australia - Weeks
    USA - Sarah Bajc for partner Philip Wood

    I think the 5th family member is from India also.
