    True. Maybe more is going on than the news is told though, I hope. And, all countries still have to ask permission to be there.:banghead:

    According to a google search commercial airliners like the 777 are normally in service 20 years on average. It depends on the number of flight hours. Derryn and other members will be more knowledgable than me though.

    Investigators have cleared all 227 passengers of any role in hijacking or sabotage and of having personal or psychological issues that might have played a role in the plane's disappearance, he said.

    And a senior Malaysian government official told CNN last week that authorities have found nothing about either of the pilots to suggest a possible motive.

    No such comments have been made about the rest of the crew of 12.

    I wish dozens of low-flying planes could just make passes over different parts of the ocean all day...just a wish, not realistic I guess.

    Also, Australia will be liaising heavily with the US .. we are militarily very close.

    We all will have noticed whose vessel the US has loaded its black box locator onto. Our trust levels are high, and I have no doubt that the US will/is helping us with anything we need.

    The biggest issue in terms of age number of "cycles". A cycle is a takoff, cruise, land == 1 cycle.

    Operators who do short segments (fatigue) their aircraft quicker than long haul operators. The pressurizing and depress (expand/constrct) are the real wear and tear!

    MANY are flying a LOT longer than 20 years! There are lots of fatigue tests carriers do that assist in making those decisions - but the biggest deteminant is how much improvement in fuel efficancy does the next generation aircraft offer! In terms of continuing to maintain an older series vs buying the next generation/

    The 777 is the last generation , - it "came out" 20 years ago!

    THE public face of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has made another public relations faux pas, agreeing with a Tweet that described the tragedy as a “blessing in disguise”

    Kuala Lumpur-based journalist Ismail Amsyar tweeted: “MH370 is a blessing in disguise for all of us. I understand now the beauty of unity, the sweetness of having each other..”

    Six minutes later Malaysia’s Defence and Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein shocked followers when he replied: “Right u are:)”

    You know what guys when I was reminded of "this" it struck me like they do this with everything - bombard with a angle, a new one comes, and they never go back and followup with anythng. That is why we all are going nuts.

    I think the MAl know exactly what they doing thro something out when it starts to be followed up on throw something else out they have gotten out of answering anythign they dont want to for a month .

    And its the medias issue - there all so concerned with being first that this stories has more holes with each passing day.

    And heck its working IMO

    sly like a fox

    same thing this AM -- everyone cleared followed by a sound bite clearly saying its active investigation, we are waiting for infomraiton from many countries and internally....

    but the media turns invesitgation still on INTo everyone cleared

    Been looking up commercial airlines and cargo since JerseyGirl noted the "tons of mangosteens". Well, that is a sketchy issue it seems, and the tons are not considered any problem -747's and 777's boast the ability to carry lots. It is big profit to carry the cargo, and boeing even has pdf projections for every year. However, I have found a few articles that suggest cargo is not fully checked, probably too time consumptive.

    Article from 2010:

    http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/20...-unscreened-cargo/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0

    In August last year, something was going on.:

    http://www.aircargonews.net/news/single-view/news/us-orders-airlines-to-double-cargo-screening.html

    and, there are plenty more. Not a good feeling. AND, all this info is available to everyone, iykwim.

    I am actually glad that each countries involvement is being vetted.

    I'm a little nervous that MH370 apparently crashed so relatively close to Aussie shores, and so relatively close to various installations that we have here.

    that that will turn out to be a response to something in the intervening 6 minutes. If not that is repulsive and in any other place would result with that indivdual being removed from command and given to someone who has a authetic interest in what has happened here

    hope it is wrong

    obnoxious

    The Mistress

    Didn't the mistress story get started because someone claimed that the pilot may have received a two minute phone call from a cell phone registered in a the fake name of a female?

    The first I read about it was in the Daily Mail, and knowing them, they had no first hand info and were quoting "sources".

    Is there more information about this that's credible?
