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

    Officially, the search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 ended this week.

    Key points:
    • In 2014, Chinese ship Haixun 01 picked up two signals similar to those sent by black box
    • Seabed Constructor is searching a patch of ocean where signal was detected
    • Ocean Infinity is trying to close off as much of the northern search area as possible


    But unofficially, the company leading the search continues to scan the ocean floor, and before leaving the Indian Ocean is searching a whole new area, if only for a few days.

    Dr Chon said the team had concluded that MH370 deviated from its path and that the plane’s change in direction over the Indian Ocean was made under manual control.

    “We can confirm the turn-back,” Dr Chon said.

    “We have carried out simulator sessions to determine how the aircraft turned back and we can confirm that the turn-back was made, not under autopilot, but was made under manual control.

    “(It) was not because of anomalies in the mechanical system.”

    Investigators have not been able to establish if the aircraft was flown by anyone other than the pilot.

    “We can also not exclude the possibility that there’s unlawful interference by a third party,” Dr Chon said.

    Thanks for the new thread and thank you to everyone who keeps us up to date.

    I'm still hopeful (but doubtful) they'll find MH370 one day, but I can't imagine we'll ever find out "the truth" of what happened, too much evidence will have been destroyed over time. I suppose if they found a third body and a weapon in the cockpit they could deduce there was a hijacking, but beyond that sort of scenario I don't think we'll ever know what went on that day.

    I will never understand why a more proactive approach was never taken to track the plane when contact was lost.

    Today I watched a doco on the death of golfer Payne Stewart and others due to incapacitation when their Lear Jet lost cabin pressurization in 1999.
    Within 15 minutes of no response from the plane a US Air Force F16 was in the air tracking the plane with 4 others following until it crashed after running out of fuel.

    Brought over from end of last thread.
    From your link =
    'Dr Jamieson said the potential discoveries of five deeps and the expedition’s ocean floor mapping would provide scientific innovation in almost every area of biological, geological and oceanographic study. The expedition will cover 74,000km in 11 months, starting this month in the Atlantic Ocean.'

    This sounds exciting, but I wish they would have started in the Indian Ocean.

    A US judge has dismissed nationwide litigation over the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in which victims' families sought to hold the carrier, its insurer Allianz and Boeing liable for the still-unexplained disaster.

    US District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson in Washington ruled on Wednesday night that the wrongful death and product liability litigation, encompassing 40 lawsuits, did not belong in the United States. She said the case belonged in Malaysia.

    No surprise there. I don't know why they would even think the US legal system would have jurisdiction over a case halfway around the world. Let the Malaysian courts take care of it.

    MH370 investigation: Malaysia could launch NEW SEARCH for missing Malaysia Airlines plane

    MALAYSIA could launch a new search for MH370 after families of the victims announced they have new evidence to present to the government.

    However, the country’s prime minister said they would consider resuming the search if new clues come to light.

    Six months later, the relatives are saying they will “hand over newly recovered debris” to the government.

    If the new evidence is consider sufficient, it could result in a third major search for MH370.

    Thanks for posting the articles. I had seen 2 about the families finding 5 or 6 pieces but they didn't say what. I got a new phone and tablet, had the articles on my old tablet which I ended up wiping without getting my stuff off of it. Chrome didn't back up my open tabs so I lost them.

    Praying they get another search expedition in the near future. I think the searchers were probably close to where the plane is.

    Malaysia’s new government, which took power in May, has said the search could be resumed but only if new and compelling evidencecomes to light.
    Mr Loke said the government will “immediately verify the items” ranging from almost 60 centimetres (two feet) in length to palm-sized.
    “We will need some credible leads before we reopen the search,” he told reporters.
    T. Mohan, one of the experts who took part in the investigation, told AFP that one of the items “is a floor panel of a Boeing aircraft.” The disappearance of MH370 triggered the largest hunt in aviation history. However searchers scouring a 120,000-square kilometre area of Indian Ocean have failed to locate the missing plane.

    New debris from MH370 found on Madagascar proves conclusively that the Boeing 777 broke apart on impact.
    Wreck hunter Blaine Gibson and some relatives of those lost in the MH370 disappearance handed over five pieces of debris yesterday to Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke.
    The pieces had been collected over the past year.
    “The debris proves two things. MH370 crashed violently and it almost certainly is in the Southern Indian Ocean,” Mr Gibson said.

    These new items were found between December 2016 and August 2018 according to your link.

    On the roundabout again???

    MH370 debris PLANTED? Shock claims new ‘wreckage’ LOOTED from MH17 crash site
    And one amateur sleuth has claimed the new objects were sensationally “stolen” from MH17.
    "But I have found a lot of problems in matching the pieces to MH370.
    “Several pieces including the flaperon don’t match MH370’s maintenance records and several items screwed into the piece did not match the missing B777s.
    “A tail piece found off Africa actually was a missing tail logo piece of Mh17, that crashed over Ukraine.
    “Just to top it off MH17s right flaperon hasn’t been found and in my opinion I believe it’s highly likely that pieces looted at MH17's crash site were dumped off the coast of
    Africa so that the government can come up with a falsified conclusion.”
