And 'consistent' lets not forget consistent. Positive, most promising lead and consistent.......consistently for the past 3 days and possibly the week ahead.

I wish we had a system to know exactly where the plane is.

This is the most promising lead, since the promising one last week.

I'm afraid we might only know when either a life-jacket or safety card washes up on a beach in Western Australia or some other far off coast.

And it continues: The signals being emitted are consistent with that of an FDR. Are the signals conclusive as coming from a FDR? This has become a joke.

I don't understand what you want from them. Apparently the frequency and pulse interval are about right for the specs of the device. If that's what you know, then the right thing to say is exactly what they are saying - consistency.

As they get more data, the confidence level will go up. Perhaps those involved already have some confidence that this is it, but obviously not to the point they're going to make a definite statement.

Patience.

Well, I am kind of curious what the Discovery Channel is going to show 2nite at 8pm EST tonite - Flight 370 The Missing Links.

The Foremost Thinkers in Aviation and Security Explore Key Questions in FLIGHT 370: THE MISSING LINKS, April 16


The mystery of flight MH370 has garnered worldwide attention and generated widespread speculation about how the events unfolded. Now, FLIGHT 370: THE MISSING LINKS looks to industry experts to account for just how it is possible to lose track of an airliner. Premiering Wednesday, April 16 at 8 p.m.ET/ 9 p.m. PT, the one-hour Discovery special examines evidence reflecting the global frailties of aviation, and reveals potential solutions to prevent the disappearance of an aircraft from ever happening again.

Tracking satellite industry experts: FLIGHT 370: THE MISSING LINKS premieres April 16 on Discovery

In an age when people can use apps to locate handheld devices, the special also looks at how a state-of-the-art airliner and its 239 passengers and crew can simply vanish. Questions about flight safety have once again taken centre stage since flight MH370 went off the grid on March 8, 2014. In an attempt to answer some of these questions, FLIGHT 370: THE MISSING LINKS addresses seven missing links: airport security, air traffic control, on-board communication systems, mechanical failure, tracking - both radar and satellite, international cooperation, and the black box.

Well, until the world actually sees physical evidence of any part of the plane = this plane is still missing IMO.

Yes and the finding of any wreckage could take a very long time - months or more as the "black box" batteries for any tracing will be expired by now.

So true! Especially when you have technology (BB) from the early 60s being deployed in a 21st century aircraft. All the best with the underwater search, and I do believe that the Search and Recovery costs have now exceeded $ 250 million USD dollars; I don't know how all the countries involved are sharing the costs? Use this event for training purposes? I'm sure Malaysia Airlines does not have that amount of money on hand to reimburse all parties involved. But, I must commend Air France for doing whatever it took to recover AF 447 for the victims families/relatives. Hope this can be the same for MAS 370. Regards, T7

Everyone keeps comparing similarities between MH370 and AF447 but I see several differences.

Firstly it was quite clear where AF447 went down when it vanished off the radar and when the search began, in LESS then a week floating wreckage was found, including the tail which in most crashes at sea is always found first floating on the surface and relatively intact. When you find that much, it gives you a fairly good idea where the plane went down. You're in the ballpark. The reason it took them so long to find the BB and sunk wreckage of AF447 was because of the inhospitable sea floor, terrain and depth.

In the case of MH370, everyone knows exactly when and where it officially 'vanished' i.e. went dark but they searched and searched and found nothing, then according to some data, they looked elsewhere and again found nothing, then expanded it to an 'arc' and again found nothing and finally down south they continue to find nothing, no floating wreckage, not a trace.

The only similarities between this case and AF447 is the time its taking locating the BB and in the case of AF447, they pretty much knew where to look as the floating wreckage acted as a sort of 'marker' for where the rest of the plane might be. In this case, there is not even a trace of any floating wreckage and everything is now based on assumptions, surmises and could be's and should be's.

Yep, AF 447 was found within a week. But, it should not take up to a week to find a plane that goes down in our day of cutting edge technology.

It's just an exceptional tragedy that quite very possibly, may never be solved.

I think you might be on the same page with Richard Quest; he's also been doubting the latest underwater searches will yield anything about MAS 370. Just praying and hoping that they do eventually find the wreckage so that the families and loved ones of the passengers will finally get much deserved closure.

I'm hoping that the search teams are reasonably confident of the general location in which they are targeting their searches - because to the casual observer it almost seems like looking for that proverbial "needle in a hackstack" opportunity ... maybe they should contract Titanic's director James Cameron on an expedition ...

Today's news: The search teams are going to narrow their search and then asses what needs to be done. A complete waste of time.

Hi Moin, I am going to assume you meant = assess, and not referring to the search parties for being 'rear-ends' for wasting time again. Cheers! T7

Now they think it might have landed somewhere else possibly on dry land, I'm starting to think the authorities have no idea when it went. Or they are deliberately providing miss-information to the media outlets because they do know who took it and where it is so as to put the culprits responsible off guard. I do hope that it's intact somewhere, but if it is intact I fear for the passengers safety.
Sources close to investigation claim missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370 may have landed, not crashed | News.com.au

It's amazing in the 21st century how it is possible to simply loose a large aircraft. If the plane was landed in which countries would it be possible to hide it?
I would have thought there was some US military satellite system in place whose sole purpose was to monitor aircraft in the skies.
