The veracity of the satellite data which led to the current search area must not be doubted or even questioned.
This was made clear to me, on these threads, in no uncertain terms.
Now we have it that the opinion of a German research team is considered a major development when it puts the MH370 crash site some 3,500 km further north.
Can these contradictions be reconciled?
Has there always been a silent belief (by a substantial group) that the satellite data could be false? I wonder ....
For example, combine this new information with the words of Tim Clark, that he doesn't believe that MH370 is where they are looking for it, and it all takes on a new meaning again.
It adds to the mystery, it certainly doesn't make it any clearer.
One also wonders about the barnacles ....
Are they as old as they ought to be?
Can one tell whether they are from tropical or more cooler waters?
What about them anyway? There is no news on them ....
|Quoting Kevil (Reply 103):|
[....] the Vietnamese sent out one flight only (six days after MH370 disappeared) and then were told to stop looking.
This remark is still a little concerning.
I can remember that at the time I myself thought that the authorities were far to eager to stop searching in response to that sighting.
As for the flaperon supposedly drifting from the South China Sea all the way to the Reunion Islands?
It does sound incredibly unlikely.
Then again, whilst the indications are that the flaperon is off 9M-MRO
, there is no absolute confirmation of that yet.
At this stage, literally, it could be anybodies, set adrift from anywhere; perhaps from 3,500 km further north of the current search site, as the German team seems to have worked out. Isn't there an island nearby, somewhere?
One wonders why it should take so long to confirm unequivocal for the part to be off 9M-MRO
People happen to be on holidays..!? Hmm ....
Nachtigall, ick hoer Dir trapsen ..!
