Sorry to be THAT guy but say the plane was flown to Baikonur as a few (tin foil hats) propose. Couldn't I simply take off a part here or there, say a flaperon, and fly it to the Indian Ocean, drop it in the water and hope it washes up somewhere some 18 months later?
I think it is time to stop with this BS
. Not only it is disrespectful to the entire people who have the dedicated hours and hours to find the aircraft, but to those who lost their life and their families. To still keep coming up with this type of idiotic, nonsensical ideas, so as just to post something on a.net is just really demeaning, at this stage. Please let´s stop with these tin foil hat B movie type delusions.

The french prosecutor was a bit reserved. But they certainly will need further analysis to get out all conceivable information from that flaperon. It is the first clue in over a year.
I suppose that the available evidence was handed to the Malaysians and they decided it was enough to make their announcement in the way they did. The French on the other need to meet, by law, certain criteria in order to be able to say the same. I´m pretty sure this is what happened.

Will it? Call me pessimistic but even if they find the aircraft it seems almost hopeless the truth will be found. Doesn’t the CVR only record for 2 hours? In that case it would have looped over the initial change in course that happened 7 hours prior to the crash. We will never know what was said or done in the cockpit initially. This just frustrates me. How hard is it to make a device record more than 2 hours? Flash memory is super cheap, and a few GBs can hold hours and hours of voice recording. My phone can record longer for crying out loud. I think the whole truth will never be found. At most, the FDR will be found showing exactly where it flew but it won’t tell us why. To the families of the victims this won’t be very good closure.
I think they both now can record more than 2 hrs. Or is it only the FDR?

That answer doesn't help.
'Right' from a pilot or passenger's perspective or 'right' when looking at the aircraft front on?
Kindly use the terminology 'starboard' or 'port' to clear this up.

Are there really people on an aviation enthusiast forum who are confused about which wing a part is from when told it came from the right wing?
A.net, which I love, has to be one of those places where somebody genuinely tries to help someone by giving an educated answer to a question and you can just count to three, and voila! Somebody will swoop in to DEMAND that that helpful answer, written without any self interest but only to happily share info and one´s knowledge has to be put down and RUDELY CORRECTED because some obscure terminology is not used. Even though EVERYBODY, plus the canary, understood the original answer... *sigh* So sad...Just because the keyboard is there, does not mean it HAS TO BE
|Quoting sovietjet (Reply 59):|
Even if it shows systems getting turned off deliberately it doesn't tell us more than that.
But then again, once that is found out, is there really much more to know? If that is the case it would be obvious that the plane´s systems were not at fault and that there is nothing to correct, so I don´t think that once after finding out if the systems were turned off deliberately, there is much more value in the rest of the info. Not in this case. If it is there then wonderful. But I am not sure it is at all that valuable.
