RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 47

One interest of note is that if the new proposed possible track is correct, then the a/c must have flown for at least 1000kms through the coverage area of the Australian JORN radar system. Makes one wonder if it was turned on? Presumably the Australian authorities will have noted this and checked. T...

RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 40

On the balance of probabilities, we can assume the plane flew until the fuel was exhausted and surely nobody would hi-jack a flight with barely just enough fuel to reach their target destination (yes I know about ET961 but they were drunk and mentally fragile). As for pilot suicide, why fly for 8 ho...

RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 26

The current assumption seems to be that the plane was flying for seven hours until 8:10am. Is this based solely on the reception by Inmarsat satellite of the ACARS ping which carries no data? The position information calculated from the satellite data seems to be based on the angle between the satel...

The excellent summary prepared by rcair1 (Post 77 from thread 23) which is reproduced at the head of this thread makes it clear to me that we have no definitive proof that the aircraft continued flying after disappearing from the radar around 1:30am on the 8th. March. "There are some reports ..........
