    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.
