Everyone's been silent on the actual accident, and the focus over the past few days have been political grilling/flaming... One (former) Air Safety Directorate Officer has been rumoured to have asked legal protection (in exchange for testifying).
As to this pinger pickup, the official word is that we have to wait for further details. I do hope that there'll be enough pressure to keep the investigation open instead of everyone hiding behind "confidentiality" that is used as an excuse to keep it buried somewhere...
I am extremely curious as to what caused the accident and also how it happened since none of the pieces found so far made sense, the conspiracies are too easy to fabricate...
I hope they can retrieve it in good time.
When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
