    Depends on whether they can recover the flight recorder, which maybe many fathoms deep. Otherwise...it's like you say.

    Went to the last Inmarsat launch. It was via a Russian Proton rocket. Three more to go for complete world coverage of fast high capacity broadband anywhere. Satellite built by Boeing to Inmarsat design. Funny that Inmarsat and British Air accident investigation branch were the only organisations that had to technlogy to estimate where the missing aircraft went down. Where was that technological wonder, the Argie rocket - still in the Brocks firework factory perhaps? Can Think enlighten us? (He is now frantically Googling! )

    Risking conspiracy theories or not;
    A question absolutely begs to be answered and that question being left untouched by the Malaysian government makes it seem it is being deliberately avoided.

    Why was a plane going to China from Malaysia found 1,500 miles west of Perth?

    It can't hurt to ask a few questions.

    Mention was made of a politically dissatisfied pilot, no?

    Was it also mentioned that same pilot built his own flight simulator?

    Were all communications almost completely severed, AND the plane went in the opposite direction of where it was supposed to?

    Have attempts to cover up suicide flights by a government ever been made before?

    Really all you can do now is wait, and Wait and WAIT. It took 2 years to find AF 447s' black box...

    INMARSAT - British
    Majority air/sea cover - USA and Australian.

    Proof of Soft Power.

    Other countries soon welcome these 'Anglo' countries at certain times I see.

    Just to make another point, the UK, USA and Australia are heavily immigrant influenced countries, made up from so many cultures.

    Just want to put that out there.

    I have never seen an indigenous troll on this website...

    They say, they have now found even more bits and pieces,

    like you say, they now need to find the plane for final proof, so the relatives can mourn in peace.

    1./ Why was it picked up on radar going across Malaysia and nothing was done??

    2./ NSA can spy on everyone's emails, but have no idea where a giant airplane is?

    3./ Why have a transponder that can be turned off?

    China satellites spot 2-3 pieces of debris.

    French satellites spot 120 pieces of debris.

    Thai satellites spot 300 pieces of debris.

    Lots and lots of boats, and lots and lots of planes.

    And still, not one piece of all this spotted debris has been pulled from the ocean. ???
