They did not pick one single little fragment of the plane, and the images are not precise enough. So the mystery is still unsolved.

Malaysia Flight 370 Sent Final 'Partial Ping' That Could Aid Investigation

The Cause of the Partial Ping Could Have Several Possible Explanations, but Human Interaction Has Been Ruled Out


Quote:


Investigators revealed that eight minutes after the last complete transmission from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, there was a "partial ping" from the missing aircraft that could help investigators unravel what happened to the missing jet before it stopped flying.

The final partial transmission from the missing Boeing , which disappeared from civilian radar on March 8, "originates with the aircraft for reasons not understood," said Chris McLaughlin, senior vice president of Inmarsat PLC, which operates the satellite.

The company is investigating the partial ping—or digital handshake between the jet and the satellite—as "a failed login" to its satellite network or as "potential attempt by the system [aboard the aircraft] to reset itself," Mr. McLaughlin said.

The partial ping could have several possible explanations, he added, but that human interaction with the satellite communications system had been ruled out.

"We're not looking at this [partial ping] as someone trying to turn on the system and communicate," he said.

The partial ping is the latest in a series of clues that have presented new questions for investigators as they try to piece together what happened to the missing aircraft and the 239 people aboard.

A statement released earlier Tuesday by Malaysian authorities indicated the U.K. Air Accidents Investigation Branch determined there was "evidence of a partial handshake between the aircraft and ground station" that followed the last complete ping eight minutes earlier.

Investigators said "at this time this transmission isn't understood and is subject to further ongoing work," but didn't elaborate.

Mr. McLaughlin in an interview said Inmarsat's engineers and investigators were trying to understand the conditions that could cause a final incomplete ping, but added that this "does not affect the plot for the probable end location of the flight" in the southern Indian Ocean.

After the jet disappeared from radar, it linked up roughly once every hour for six hours with a satellite operated by Inmarsat. By analyzing specific features of these digital handshakes between the jet and the satellite, Inmarsat officials were able to plot a direction and general course for Flight 370.

At a news conference on Tuesday, Malaysia's defense minister and acting transportation minister Hishammuddin Hussein revealed the incomplete, or "partial handshake" between the aircraft and Inmarsat's system.

By the time the next regularly scheduled ping was supposed to occur, nearly an hour later, "the aircraft no longer was able to communicate" and presumably had gone down, the minister said.

By computing the plane's estimated speed, fuel consumption and other factors, investigators are trying to project the most likely point at which it hit the water.

Deciphering the reasons behind the partial handshake, according to people familiar with the technical details, could be an important step toward understanding what aircraft systems were doing shortly before impact.

To better understand Inmarsat's data and analysis, Malaysian authorities on Tuesday said they had set up "an international working group, comprising agencies with expertise in satellite communications and aircraft performance."

Malaysia's biggest tragedy in terms of death toll and international coverage for as long as 19 days now.

However, political scientists say Malaysia will be facing disastrous political and diplomatic tragedy. The mystery remained unresolved as not a single debris is found and proven yet.

Latest from the MH370 press conference: New satellite images show 122 objects possibly linked to Malaysian plane

Quote:


Malaysia says a satellite has captured images of 122 objects in the Indian Ocean that might be from the missing plane.

Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says the objects were seen close to where three other satellites previously detected objects. He said Wednesday the sightings together are "the most credible lead that we have." Hishammuddin said the images were taken Sunday and were relayed by French-based Airbus Defense and Space. Hishammuddin says the objects ranged in length from one meter (yard) to 23 meters (25 yards).

Various floating objects have been spotted by planes and satellites, but none has been retrieved or identified.

Just like the Air France 447 incident, the MH370 tragedy again highlights the need to shift to a GPS-based tracking system..........as radar-based technologies are insufficient.............especially in areas with lack of radar stations.

Also, is needed that GPS tracking system can't be disconnected from the cabin by the pilot.... It could be in the engines, like that pings that these send, or in another place where is not accessible to switch it off during a flight.

Satellite Spots New Objects as Weather Slows Flight 370 Search


Quote:
As search efforts for the Malaysia Airlines plane missing in the southern Indian Ocean were scaled back today due to bad weather, new satellite images have emerged showing about 300 new objects floating nearby, officials said.

Anond Snidvongs, director of Thailand's space technology development agency, said Thursday the images showed "300 objects of various sizes" in the southern Indian Ocean about 1,675 miles southwest of Perth.

Missing Malaysia Airlines Plane: What We Know Now

He says the images were taken by the Thaichote satellite on Monday, took two days to process and were relayed to Malaysian authorities on Wednesday.

Anond says the objects were about 125 miles from the area where a French satellite on Sunday spotted 122 objects.

It remains uncertain whether the objects are from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Aircraft were slated to scour the region today, but they were later pulled away due to heavy rains and strong winds. Despite the poor weather, ships remained in the area.

Crews are searching two search zones covering roughly 30,000 square miles, trying to find clues into the plane's March 8 disappearance. So far, no objects connected to the missing plane have been recovered.

Search crews are racing to find the plane's black boxes, whose battery-powered "pinger" could stop sending signals within weeks.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was carrying 239 people when it went missing more than two weeks ago.

Relatives of the plane's passengers remain devastated by the situation. Malaysia officials met with relatives for three hours Wednesday, with another meeting occurring Thursday, officials said in a press release.

"Malaysia is working hard to try and make the briefings to the Chines relatives in Beijing more productive," Malaysia officials said in the statement. "Malaysian officials met with His Excellency Huang Huikang, China’s Ambassador to Malaysia, to request the Government of China to engage and clarify the actual situation to the affected families in particular and the Chinese public in general."

Malindo Air Plane Catches Fire





Quote:
PETALING JAYA: A victorious night could have turned tragic for Terengganu's football team when their Malindo Air flight had to turn back because the ATR 72-600 plane’s turboprop engine caught fire.

Terengganu midfielder Faiz Subri posted a picture of the burning engine and said the plane turned back and landed in Subang Airport.

Everyone on board the 7.30am flight was safe.

The table-topping side were due to return to Kuala Terengganu on Wednesday after beating ATM FA 3-0 at the Selayang Stadium on Tuesday.

According to Terengganu FA staff, the players posted pictures of the incident on their social media pages.

According to a statement on the Terengganu FA's website, the team took a replacement flight back to Kuala Terengganu at 10am.
Another incident from malaysia, hmm.. But Thanks God, All safe.

Indian air force plane crashes, killing 5 on board

Quote:



An Indian air force cargo plane inducted into service three years ago crashed during a training mission Friday, killing all five crew members in the latest in a series of accidents that have hit the Indian armed forces.

The C-130J Hercules plane went down 115 kilometers (72 miles) west of Gwalior air base in central India and the cause wasn't immediately known, Group Capt. Gerard Galway said.

Air force, police and fire brigade teams reached the site of the crash near Karauli village in Madhya Pradesh state. The aircraft's black box was recovered and investigative efforts will now focus on what led to the crash, officials said.

India's air force chief, Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, said the plane had been used in difficult situations during the past three years, such as to rescue people from devastating floods in the Himalayan foothills and landing in harsh terrain on the India-China border.

He appeared to discount the possibility of pilot error.

"Needless to say, the best pilots have been chosen to fly these aircraft," Raha said.

India bought six C-130J aircraft from U.S.-based Lockheed-Martin at a cost of $1.1 billion three years ago.

Navy chief Adm. D.K. Joshi resigned last month to take responsibility for accidents in that service branch. Days later, a gas leak on a destroyer being built at a Mumbai dockyard killed a navy commander and sickened two workers.

Last August, another Russian-made diesel-powered submarine caught fire after an explosion and sank at port in Mumbai, killing all 18 sailors on board.

In December, the INS Talwar, a Russian-built stealth frigate, slammed into a trawler off India's west coast, sinking the boat and tossing 27 fishermen into the sea. All of the fishermen were rescued.

Another navy frigate ran aground near the Mumbai naval base in January, damaging some equipment. And the INS Airavat, an amphibious warfare vessel, ran aground earlier last month.

India also sent two C-130J planes to participate in the search for a Malaysia Airlines plane lost in the southern Indian Ocean. It was not immediately clear if the plane that crashed Friday had been involved in the search.

Sameer Patil, a security expert with the Indian Council on Global Relations, a Mumbai-based think tank, said Friday's crash would be a major setback for the Indian air force.

"After years of delay, the fleet is undergoing expansion in critical airlift capabilities. Hence, a loss such as this is particularly worrisome," Patil said.

India has become the world's biggest arms importer as it pushes to modernize its military and replace its obsolete Soviet-era weapons.

The purchases were also spurred by crashes of almost 55 percent of its front-line MiG fleet acquired from the former Soviet Union.

With national elections starting in less than two weeks, opponents were quick to attack the government for the accidents, saying it had to investigate if there was any negligence involved.

"This is absolutely a shocking incident," said Prakash Javadekar, spokesman of the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party.

"The Hercules is such a sturdy aircraft it doesn't meet with such kind of accidents. The government needs to own responsibility for this state of affairs," he told reporters.

Now here is smthg interesting to me,..
http://www.youtube.com/embed/Eb-7RLcU2CI( listen closely at the counter 2:53)
The guy says, the Pilot can turn OFF the CVR and FDR both by simply pulling a circuit breaker.
And, that simply means,.. if it was an intended hijack and then the crash happened, finding of the Black Box would also be a no help.



New data search report - stuff not realted to MH370
Village fisherman still thinks it as Hijack and not crash,..

Pilots have the ability to switch off power in case there is an electrical emergency (eg. short-circuit), in which case they need to take action to stop a fire from arising or spreading. Hence, the circuit breakers are key. But these are not easy buttons to spot from the untrained eye. Even for hijackers with air training, they probably won't be able to find what they are looking for unless they are trained on that particular aircraft type.
