  • Navy official: Pings not thought to be from Flight 370's black boxes

    (CNN) -- The four acoustic pings at the center of the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 for the past seven weeks are no longer believed to have come from the plane's black boxes, a U.S. Navy official told CNN. The acknowledgment came Wednesday as searchers wrapped up the first phase of their effort, having scanned 329 square miles of southern Indian Ocean floor without finding any wreckage from the Boeing 777-200.
  • Malaysia Airlines Flight 370:Doubts Raised Over Some Pings Thought to Be From Plane

    Searchers Focus on April 5 Signals as Confidence Fades Over April 8 Detections Searchers preparing to resume the underwater hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 increasingly suspect that some of the electronic signals detected last month didn't come from the jetliner's black-box flight recorders, a senior Australian naval officer said. The doubts—based on further acoustic analysis of the transmissions by Australian authorities over recent weeks—represent another potential setback in the two-month-old operation. An initial underwater search in the southern Indian Ocean has already failed to find any sign of the missing plane, while a costly air-and-ship search of the ocean's...

    Hey guys, earlier today I went to read my "pings" and I don't see any of the content of the comments, only the name of the thread and the respondent. Did something change? :( I like clicking and reading the responses and not necessarily going through the whole thread.

    Over the past few weeks I've been compiling various ping lists via requests on some of my Freep posts. This is the first viewing offered. It's sparse; I'm sure there's plenty more Freep ping lists out there. And it's not viewed by millions. But I will put the URL in my sig line when I post on FreeRepublic and I'm a frequent poster. I will also be designing a big banner on my sidebar for folks who read my regular Blog posts. Might get some attention. There's instructions on the post how to add your ping list to this Blog...

  • Air France Flight 447: FAB SAR Missions End – French Navy Captures Signal

    The Brazilian Navy and Air Force have announced the termination of the SAR mission for Air France Flight 447. All hope for solving the mystery of Flight 447 now rests on finding the “black boxes”. Very few noticed the Le Figaro article late Thursday night which stated: According to several sources contacted Thursday, French forces have captured a signal, “they revolve around the past few days to locate it,” said a military source. “The question now is rather whether the issuer is still attached to the black box view of the circumstances of the accident,” says a close source. As...

    In the 'pings' set in some comments, besides the expected member names, I have seen the word 'All'. Does that 'ping' the message to everyone who already left a comment on that thread? How about those who comment after? And are there other 'special' words, besides 'All'? Thanks.

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...
