So I go to bed w/ the news China had spotted something, but 8-9 hours later there is confirmation that it ended in the Indian Ocean even though there has been no debris found... Curious...
I think once they realized the plane went back across Malaysia at such low altitudes(12k or below), they finally started to actually check cell phone & WiMax data for the first time in the investigation. They probably were able to see that phones and laptops tried to connect and they walked that trail back across the Malaysian peninsula and added it to the Southern ping data.
Just an idea though I don't know that to be true...
I just don't see how that equates to my suspicions & opinion!
..."Effectually we looked at the doppler effect, which is the change in frequency, due to the movement of a satellite in its orbit. What that then gave us was a predicted path for the northerly route and a predicted path the southerly route," explained Chris McLaughlin, senior vice president of external affairs at Inmarsat.
"What we discovered was a correlation with the southerly route and not with the northern route after the final turn that the aircraft made, so we could be as close to certain as anybody could be in that situation that it went south."
"Where we then went was to work out where the last ping was, knowing that the aircraft still had some fuel, but that it would have run out before the next automated ping. We don't know what speed the aircraft was flying at, but we assumed about 450 knots."...
A Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Incheon Airport in Seoul was forced to make an emergency landing in Hong Kong last night after an electricity generator failed. Flight MH066 took off from the Malaysian capital at 11.37pm on Sunday and landed at Hong Kong airport at 2.53am Monday morning. Hong Kong's Civil Aviation Department confirmed the aircraft had experienced problems with its generator. A statement from Malaysia Airlines said: "Malaysia Airlines confirms that flight MH066 from Kuala Lumpur to Incheon on 23 March 2014 was diverted to Hong Kong due to an inoperative aircraft generator which supplies normal electrical power. "However electrical power continued to be supplied by the auxiliary power unit. The aircraft was then diverted to Hong Kong for rectification and landed uneventfully. "All 271 passengers from MH066 have been transferred on other carriers. "The return flight MH067 from Incheon to Kuala Lumpur is cancelled and passengers have been transferred on other carriers as well as subsequent Malaysia Airlines flight to Kuala Lumpur."
