networkn: So is it that the thing spotted off Australia turned out to be nothing?



They haven't found that yet.

I hear Aussies are having a bit of a laugh over the "wreckage floating south of Aussie" - some questioning if it might be New Zealand.

Only since this thread is in the off-topic forum already....

I'm not surprised... Given that New Zealand is East of Australia, this a pretty clear indication of the quality of Australian's geographic knowledge. tongue-out

Just watched an episode of Air Crash Investigation. The US military assisted by sharing data from a system called Passive Radar which apparently tracks every military and civilian plane in the world. I've never heard of such a system but I wonder what it says about this flight?

joker97: Vanished


Yes, but where?

No one seems to have a very good idea of where it vanished and if this secret US thing tracks aircraft all the time, where do they say it is/was?

I think some people know more than has been released to the media. But I think it will br a relatively straight forward explaination as to what has happened, especially has the pilots have now been cleared. That is if we will ever find out, as it is possible it will never be found. I think the tracking requirements are woefully inadequate, especially due to the high cost involved in searching. I wonder who is paying for  that

Looks like it's been found.

China has satellite images of floating object, 72 feet by 43 feet, in the southern search area for Flight 370, Malaysian official says.

I agree, it will be a very straightforward explanation. The pilots cannot be "cleared" until flight recording devices have been recovered and analysed.

Hang on a sec. Only if they find the black box. Let's hope they do.

Personally I think there is plenty of evidence that supports the pilot(s) being responsible.
