Part of the problem is the Australian government is pretty much expected to pay for this search, even though only six Australians were aboard.
It's one thing for us to be geographically responsible for a huge area of ocean when lives can actually be saved.
But in this case...
I actually hope the government will decide to have one last look, giving this is the ATSB asking. But I wouldn't want to be the politician making the call to spend even more money on it.
Does CNN know this?
CNN should pay for it...
Get Discovery Channel and National Geographic to help sponsor the search, and use the footage for a series.
What did Trump know and when did he know it? < /S >
BTW, with all of the searching done over the past year, has anyone cataloged what other things they have found? Got to think they've found other ships, planes, and other surprises during this extensive search.
All caused by a muslim.
Well, it is such a strange case, and with terrorism such a concern, it might help everyone’s safety if we could ever find out just what did happen.
It would be a great display of Australia’s technical expertise if a new search were successful that was based on this new analysis.
The IC has known all along where the plane was.
Planes are literally loaded with small transponders that are tracked by the NRO satellites.
Even the engines connect every few minutes to their manufacturers....and that is just cheap commercially available equipment. You can buy a tiny module made to place on a circuit board to monitor your own gear via sat, wherever it is on the planet.
The really good stuff is built into the actual integrated circuits on boards.... hard to spot, hard to detect, hard to even believe for the layman.
People have no idea...
I confess that I skimmed but not study the article, and was left with no clue where or why the plane disappeared
Maybe there’s a readers’ digest version available somewhere
Weren’t a lot of the passengers Chinese? China should make a contribution to the recovery effort.
Illinois nazis did it.
“They found 12 objects in those images that they deemed man-made and 28 that they regard as possibly man-made. “
Which amounts to making the location “virtually certain” to be where the plane went down. Who’s kidding whom? Such flimsy basis makes NOTHING “virtually certain” other than someone wants some governments to give them millions to prove this “virtual certainty”.
If this was hours after the flight disappeared, I’d say O.K. It’s too late. The ONLY VIRTUAL CERTAINTY today is that everyone on board the plane is dead, and now may they rest in peace, and may we all rest in the peace of that.
This is a quibble, but they say “virtually” not “nearly”. Virtual is used so imprecisely it has lost all meaning. But “getting closer” describes the situation.
Part of the problem is that a lot of crap is just floating around down in that region. No beach to wash up on.
The plan and passengers are in Iran.
Call CNN - they’ll send out their garbage experts...
