Skip to comments.Malaysian Airlines MH370: Huge 50 foot waves cripple salvage op -- plane may never be found

The search consists of a 65-man vessel Seabed Constructor equipped geared to scouring the depths of the Indian Ocean for any sight of plane debris from the MH370 aircraft.
But, four years after the plane went missing, the latest searches through the Indian Ocean has revealed nothing -- after 16,000sq km of the planned 25,000sq km area was combed through.
The search location was pinpointed by an Australian Oceanographer as the most likely spot the plane would be.
The Malaysian government paid Ocean Infinity $20 million for 5,000 square km of a successful search, $30 million for 15,000 square km, $50 million for 25, 000 square km and $70 million if the plane debris is recovered further out from the specified area.

It's always been obvious that the trigger-happy Chinese shot it down because of the regime's illegal claims in the South China Sea, then covered it up with alacrity, probably executing the nitwit who pulled the trigger.
“It’s always been obvious that the trigger-happy Chinese shot it down -———————”
It has? That’s news to me.
It’ll be found someday...maybe not anytime soon.Twenty years from now some new device making very detailed mapping of the ocean floor might be developed,eventually resulting in its discovery.
The pilot (capt) took this aircraft down
It's certainly happened before.
making very detailed mapping of the ocean floor = making very detailed mapping of the ocean floor possible
Future technology is difficult to predict, but it would provide some closure for the affected families and I hope you are correct.
It is also possible that the plane broke apart so severely as to be indiscernible from other debris that litters the ocean floor. The one thing I have never understood fully is with all the surface radar and satellites watching the world we inhabit how or why was the aircraft’s location when it disappeared not better known. Perhaps I am naive’ to think that the skies are watched so thoroughly, but it seems that even one country would have some incidental data that would provide a better clue as to the location. One would have to guess that the aircraft was not on it’s assigned course given the lack of evidence that was found by the search raising even more questions about what happened to it.
Sure looks that way.
But then there were the two Muslims traveling with stolen passports. And a co-pilot who had a history of being lax with cockpit security.
After the incident, they searched the captain’s home and found Flight Simulator software with a course towards the Indian Ocean saved. That’s pretty much a smoking gun in my book.
Remember the a/c climbed to 38K ft for a short period of time after the transponders were turned off. The capt then donned his mask, disabled the cabin pressurization and did not deploy the oxygen masks. This is where he killed the passengers and crew.
He was brilliant at leaving no trace.
The sheer disappearance does not jibe with any conspiracy theories, group or individual.
Something weird happened to this thing due to nature and nature did the perfect job hiding it.
I don't know if this really applies to the point you've made,however:
I subscribe to a website called "flightradar24".It costs about $10 a year and with it you can track just about every commercial flight on earth...in real time.One thing that I've noticed is that on a flight from,say,JFK to Tokyo the site seems to lose track of the aircraft for a while as it passes over northern Canada and Alaska.suggesting that to me,at least, radar tracking doesn't exist *everywhere* in the world.
It seems to me that a remote part of the earth like the expanse of the Indian Ocean between Australia and southern African just might be such an area.
The Egyptian plane suicided into the Atlantic had a number Egyptian military officers on board.
I wonder if there was someone onboard MH370 who was a target.
If a "successful search" finds nothing, what does an unsuccessful search find?
Re: “The seabed of the search areas is hilly and uneven.”
Obviously, that would make identifying debris much more difficult.
Areas like that also have frequent landslides, which could conceal large pieces of debris.
The good news - probably none of that seafloor has been surveyed before, so there will be a significant addition to scientific knowledge, even if they can’t find the plane.
It’s a big planet. Surface radar requires a surface. Satellites don’t generally pay attention to the middle of nowhere unless there’s reason to believe there’s something interesting there.
Have they checked Oak Island yet? Perhaps the Lagina brothers should be consulted.
Google "Southern Ocean" and get back to us.
