Can anyone explain to me as to why we HAVE NOT YET SOLVED the mystery of Malaysian Airways Flight 370???

It's been like what? 9 months since the incident........and still no wreckage found?

The incident also highlights the weakness and shortcomings of radar-based systems (which is why we need GPS-based tracking ASAP............like what Inmarsat offers)

An Embraer EMB-500 crashed into a house just outside of Washington DC, killing six people including a mother and her two young children who were in the house. The neighborhood where the plane crash took place is next to Montgomery County Airpark which is a small airport servicing general aviation aircraft. The airport has an uncontrolled runway, which means that, as opposed to larger airports, there is no air traffic control tower directing final approaches. The pilot involved in the crash was also involved in an airplane crash roughly four years ago in which the pilot escaped with only minor injuries.

I have a co-worker who lives about 1,000 ft from the crash site. There were three homes involved in this tragic incident. The first home was clipped by the aircraft creating a large hole in the first home. Then most of fuselage, striking the front of the second home, landed up against the second home. Both rear stabilizers ended in the front porch. The third home, where the three family members perished, was hit by a section of wing which detached from the fuselage. This section of wing had aviation fuel, hence the massive fire at the third house. The fire department investigators determined that the three fatalities on the ground was due to smoke inhalation.

It is a routine flight, yes, but it does not mean that the information will come out as instantly as most of us want. The time right now in Singapore is 12:04pm, in Surabaya, 11:04am. So, if the plane "lost contact" at around 6:20am local time, it would have meant something horribly wrong happened mid-flight, not during departure or arrival.

By now it definitely crashed. The best case scenario would be a controlled ditching but the distress signal from the rafts would be by now discovered and announced...

Awful year for aviation.

This is a incredible sad end to a very safe year in aviation with a very low number of crashes with mainline commercial aircraft. But that doesn't change the fact that this is a very bleak year for Malaysian aviation, even if this is a flight from AirAsia's Indonesian registered subsidiary Indonesia AirAsia.
