    The ants crawl in and the ants crawl out and you don't know what it's all about...

    A Malaysian official says the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 by a US company will likely end in June.

    Families of passengers on the flight will mark the fourth anniversary of the plane's disappearance on March 8 with renewed hope that the world's biggest aviation mystery will be solved.

    Malaysia signed a "no cure, no fee" deal with Texas-based Ocean Infinity in January to resume the hunt for the plane, a year after the official search in the southern Indian Ocean by Australia, Malaysia and China was called off.

    Family members and relatives of passengers lit candles on a stage on Saturday and observed a minute's silence during the three-hour Day of Remembrance event in Kuala Lumpur. Most are split over whether the search will be fruitful.

    The no find no fee deal is interesting as it's gonna cost the operator a bundle if he doesn't find it.
    an air of confidence around it this time.

    Imagine the lawyers writing that No find, no fee contract and the Malaysians wriggling like worms to dishonour it, even if they find evidence !

    It will most likely be found 50 years from now during some other search or marine expedition that has nothing to do with searching for the plane. Too bad for the families though.

    Wild theory: 'MH370 found, with bullet holes'

    I'd say very wild theory.
    Who'd shoot it down near Mauritius?

    Heard another theory from an ex commercial pilot who's "ïn the know" that it's on a military base in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
    He also stated that the in cockpit controls for the tracking transponder can not be turned off by the pilot and the authorities know where it is.

    Your source has provided false information. Transponders (for secondary radar ID) can be turned off at any time during flight operations although it is rare for this to occur and normally only done upon landing to reduce ATC ground clutter. Aircraft at busy airports like DMK do this regularly.

    Transponders may also be reset to differing 'squawk' codes, eg: 7500 for 'Hijack' or 7700 for 'Emergency'.

    Secondary radar transponders can only be read by 1030 mhz ground radar which is why aircraft can 'disappear' off-screen across the middle of Australia or over large ocean areas. Watch flightradar or similar for examples of this.

    I knew that.

    But someone purporting to be an ex pilot of a 777... you gotta let them go.

    Also that info would have been known and put forward if true.
    Too much BS in this world.

    Edit; my theory is that the pilot flew it south until it ran out of fuel and crashed in the Indian Ocean. Of course the only way to prove any theory is to find it.

    Probably should say.....my info came from the Air Crash Investigation show which went through the disappearance with just what they knew happened and showing that the transponder was turned off and how easy it was for the pilot to do from where he sat.
    I don't know the first thing about how a commercial aircraft works.

    So much for that one...

    Australian officials slam investigator over cover-up claims
    19 March 2018

    The Australian Transport and Safety Bureau (ATSB) has lashed out at a MH370 investigator who claims he's found the high-profile missing plane, riddled with bullet holes.

    Mr McMahon claims that authorities "do not want it found as it's full of bullet holes - finding it will only open another inquiry".

    But his allegations have led to an angry response from the ATSB.

    "Mr McMahon contacted ATSB via Facebook and its general enquiries email in 2016 and 2017 respectively. At no stage did the ATSB suggest his evidence could be missing flight MH370," a spokesperson told Newshub.

    "The images sent to ATSB by Mr McMahon, below, were captured on 6 Nov 2009, over four years before the flight disappeared.

    "Spurious claims such as these must be particularly upsetting for the family and friends of those lost on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370."

    As Malaysia closes the inquiry, France reopens it

    France reopens MH370 investigation amid claims of Malaysian cover-up
    8 August 2018

    FRANCE has reopened its investigation into the fate of missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 after Malaysia’s long-awaited “final report” failed to provide an explanation for the aircraft’s disappearance.

    French newspaper Le Parisien reports that investigators are keen to verify data from Inmarsat — the British operator of a global satellite network — which tracked the aircraft’s pings to the southern Indian Ocean off Western Australia, where it is believed to have crashed.

    In response, relatives of those on board MH370 issued a statement urging the Malaysian government to release all data, including military radar data, for review and analysis by independent experts.

    Now the Gendarmerie of Air Transport (GTA) has launched its own probe into the mysterious disappearance, according to Le Parisien.

    It said the presence of four French victims on board the doomed flight, which vanished on March 8, 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 along with 239 passengers and crew, allowed the GTA to conduct its own investigations.

    I can't believe it's been close to 5 years.

    Apparently an Indonesian fisherman has GPS coordinates of where the plane crashed and claims him and his crew saw the crash. Which is odd given how long it's been now. I only skimmed over the article, but it doesn't seem to question why this guy is coming forward now.

    This is one of the busiest shipping lanes on earth.

    How could hundreds of ships , many loaded with advanced radar and other chunks of technology , have not also witnessed this ?
