    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. :yow: 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

    Members can create topic specific threads for in depth discussion, new developments in the case or as the need arises. New threads will go under mod review and a decision will be made whether to approve and open the thread for posting. Most threads are approved immediately.

    Yes; military radar. The search areas do not look that far from Australia. What if this was similar to 9/11 & the intended target was Australia? This is assuming MH370 had more fuel to get there. When would they have noticed it?

    How horrible!

    Thanks

    http://www.news.com.au/travel/trave...e-has-been-found/story-fnizu68q-1226885865464

    It is estimated it will take sonar-equipped Bluefin-21 six week to two months to scan the entire search area.

    Hopefully, they will find something sooner..these searches have been going 24 hours..I applaud all the women and men on board those Ships for their hard work and dedication.

    ..the key breakthrough in locating the missing aircraft was made during the analysis of MH370’s flight path.

    “Somewhere out of some place, fantastic pieces of intelligence were put together to really narrow it down to a small, small area,” he said.

    “And that’s how these guys have been able to find it so quickly.

    “The Ocean Shield was out there a couple of days and they got a hit. That has been a tremendous success and miraculous. People were searching for a miracle. This was one.”

    What happened to the Chinese ship that detected the first ping? I haven't heard anything about it since then.

    Weren't the Chinese pings in another area? I presume they were a false alarm/red herring.

    It turned out to be a False alarm
    They sent the British ship HMS Echo to the area the Chinese were searching but the sound did not come from MH370's flight recorder locator beacon

    We did post about it on an earlier Thread..

    Trying to find an MSM link for you..:findinglink:

    UPDATE
    Sorry haven't found the msm link that said the Chinese pulse signal heard last weekend was a false alarm

    Not following
    Who is saying they found the plane?

    The Australian ship Ocean Shield has narrowed down the search area with the towed pinger locator and now they are searching that underwater area with the Bluefin-21

    No. I think they just have a high degree of confidence (based on Inmarsat data, likely flight path, and black box pings, plus info that perhaps only military is privy to) that they're in the right area, and a reasonably small area at that. Small is relative, though, and the submersibles move slowly, which is why they keep warning people it will be time-consuming. But they are investing that time based on, again, a high degree of confidence based on an aggregate of data that's been collected over the last few weeks.

    EDIT: I should also mention that on other forums I'm on, the loss of the black box signal is considered a good thing--the batteries were supposed to run out right about when they did, which is more proof they're in the right area.

    The black boxes in airliners have a sonar pinger that sends out a Ping every second. The batteries that power this device are designed to last about a month. A ship sent to the area where the missing 777 is believed to to be heard a pinger for a while, but it has now gone silent. Presumably because the battery power has run out. The pinger data doesn't tell us precisely where the aircraft is, but leaves us with a much smaller area to search.

    The searchers are now using a remote controlled submarine to search the ocean floor using an active sonar system. This should be able to find the wreckage, but it is a slow process that may take weeks or even months.

    The last report I read said the missing airliner was somewhere in a 100 square km region. Has that figure been revised?

    I heard mentioned on CNN ( Wolf Blitzer) that something like a bread basket was found (floating I think) and was being analyzed. Anyone else hear anything on this?
