I just found a feature on the Tomrad where you can download results up in the top right corner, it then takes you to google earth and plots all the findings thus far.
If you zoom in on an area, clicking on one of the markers brings up a picture of the tile of interest, its number, etc.
Not good if true;
...It would support the Westward turn and then Thailand saying it wasn't detected by it's Northern radar.
Pardon me for being dense this morning, good Dr'...but, what do you mean by 'not good if true'?
Stop press Courtney love has found it.
Sorry just wanted to lighten it a little
Wouldn't that be hilarious if that is it? Not hilarious in the fact the plane crashed but imagine the headlines if Courtney Love upstages sophisticated equipment from all the nations tech?edit on 18-3-2014 by UnBreakable because: (no reason given)

I and others after posted this same picture long ago through this thread. Funny people are actually looking at it more now because she has posted it. If you look closely though you will recognize it from before. It was written off then and now its turned into a joke.
I myself still think that picture didnt really get the credit it deserved in its original post. This is the one the Dutch freighter was suppose to go look at. People tracking the freighter said it never really went to the coordinates. Just sailed on by.
Morning WanDash, I mean if it went that way there is nothing but sea and it likely ran out of fuel there. Very sad but that's what I think happened tbh.
Looking at possible landing sites in indian ocean and the simulators for landing in some areas in indian ocean i thought id have a look. I came across this in the Seychelles. It looks like a 777-200 to me. This may be a popular route for this plane but just thought id add it in. You can even see the maintenance so its just landed or ready for take off. any thoughts?
Last time I used Google Earth, there was a time slider where I could look at various images over time, but none of them were very recent. The tomnod images are recent, that's why you see people talking about and posting images from tomnod.
Am I right in think g google earth doesn't have updated satellite imagery ?
Can you get latest satellite imagery for it though ?
(*or at least have a separate "unidentified official" verification on from a reputable source) - 1:07 - ACARS last transmission (thru VHF) which apparently includes notation of a WP change having been entered into system since last scheduled report at 12:37 - 1:11 - INMARSAT ping would have been received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) - 1:19 - 'Alright, Good Night' at handover (supposedly by co-pilot) - 1:22 - Transmitter goes off (note: those previous two might be reversed, we have multiple sources seemingly confirming both possibilities. One happened at 1:19, one at 1:22 though. I'm putting them in this order mainly because...) - 1:22 - Plane goes out of range/black from Thailand Radar (likely from the transponder going black and not the plane going out of range) - 1:28 - Unidentified plane shows up on Thailand Radar roughly off the Kota Bharu, Malaysia coast (at Malaysia/Thailand border) and this apparently shows plane crossing the Peninsula to the Straights of Malacca (unknown endtime for this path) - somewhere between 1:15-1:30 - Vietnam sees plane turn around. From roughly 1:30-forward, Vietnam is "frantically" trying to contact the plane (note: they have not told us a specific time of turn or if they know this because of a Military or ATC radar hit, but they told Malaysia they 'watched plane turn around' sometime shortly after contact was lost) - 1:37 - ACARS misses scheduled transmission - 1:30-1:45 - at minimum 11 eye witness reports from around and past the Kota Bharu, Malaysia/Thailand border areas (including one saying 'plane descending fast' like one of the later radar hits indicates) - 2:11 - INMARSAT ping would have been received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) - between 1:30-2:40 - Malaysian Military and Civilian radar picks up an "unidentified" plane flying over peninsula (Daud says "this was corroborated by civilian radar" in the march 9th press conferences). Those include a couple radar hits we have specifically been told about* (and who knows how many that haven't been provided/leaked): ... VAMPI ... GIVAL ... IGREX (note: we are not sure of the timing of the radar hits, and there is very contradictory evidence here. The most recent seemingly-official time is 2:15 for the last hit. Which hit that was, we don't know for sure) post 2:15/or/2:40 apparent absolute complete blackout of plane (except...) - 3:11 - INMARSAT ping received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) - 4:11 - INMARSAT ping received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) - 5:11 - INMARSAT ping received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) - 6:11 - INMARSAT ping received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) - 7:11 - INMARSAT ping received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) near 40 Degree line - 7:24 - Statement released by Malaysian Officials saying contact lost at 2:40 and SAR efforts are underway - 8:11 - INMARSAT ping received, as apparently Boeing's AHM report attempted to automatically transmit (thru Satellite) (thru Satellite) on 40 Degree line
