Well, there seem to be conflicting dates for the article I posted. The page says 3/26, but comments are from January, which leads me to believe this is old news. So, I'll remove the link. FYI, the article was about a fully clothed man who washed up on a beach in Phuket.

Just posted in the 300 page thread, Onehuman, was this what you were looking for, its all I could find, we did discuss the body wearing a life jacket that was found in the ocean near Malacca Strait, but the press said it was a maritime accident, although I could find no reference to recent accidents with loss of life.

This is all I could find, its slightly graphic (i.e. dead body) no other reference can be found :-( Not by me anyway

The MNDF spokesperson major Hussein Ali reported that they are now looking into this "unknown" object that had washed up onto Baarah Island. He did not give details.

While some of the islanders speculate this unknown object to be a sea mine, others imagine it as another form of an explosive.

This object is to small to be a sea mine, would it be related to the mystery of MH370? my guess is yes.
This object really looks like a fire extinguisher from a plane, Cargo area.

the plane spots something the boats go there 2/3 days later and debris has moved on.

why are they not using hover craft or better still FLYING BOATS?

A flying boat is a plane that flies and can also go like a boat.look in google images.

invented last century.

also you can refuel them from any sea going ship.

so they can over large distances and go immediately to any debris.they can spot debris and land right next to it in the water.

at the moment you have the absurd situation a plane spots something but can't identify it or bring it on board.

by the the time the boats/ships gets there it has has drifted away.


what do you think and how can we inform the search people about this?

The seas in that area would be WAY too rough to land one of those, let alone have it sit there through large swells. We would be dealing with multiple sunken flying boats if this was tried. They are made for mostly calm waters.

And a hovercraft would have the same ability as a normal boat to get there, so why use a hovercraft?

DistantThunder
Halon extinguishers were phased out 10-15 years ago


gemineye
They're still in use on aircraft.

US Navy ships used them in machinery rooms as well...

Reason being that many Navy ships were experiencing fires resulting in injuries and deaths on a regular basis.

They have probably switched over to water spray and/or Pentafluoroethane HFC 125, HFC-227ea, etc. because of the risks though.

Thanks civpop, I just responded to you on the other page. That is the sailor they were looking for.

I asked for help trying to locate the link again on another site and went to bed after searching through a lot of pages on the big thread. Someone did send it to me through the night.

I am not posting the picture out of respect.
If you notice, this article was posted on 3-16

Also, not trying to take away from this thread. People asked to see this.

Snippet:

Unidentified corpses in Meghna



Several dead bodies were floating in the Meghna river at island Upazila Hatia in Noakhali, local people say.

Looks like a mine to me. Living where I do coastal southern Virginia surrounded by military we have on occasion had weird stuff wash up on our beaches. Mortars and mines being some of them.

You could have posted the picture as it doesn't show a body. Just an unidentified lump and two dogs standing near it. Authorities didn't find any bodies. If there was one you'd think a better picture could be obtained than that one.

I'd just throw out that a B-52 and B-1 have crashed in the area in years past (a b-52 crash in '91, and a B-1 in '01) - if it is, indeed, part of an a/c fire suppression system, one of those could conceivably be the source.

The timing would be quite a coincidence, however ...

Looks pretty small for a mine though, and the similar looking satellite tanks are also sizable and it's pristine. It does looks exactly like the extinguisher however. Good find OP


Here's a comparison with tanks in situ,

People have been tweeting the "aircraft fire suppression bottle" link to all of the major news networks the past few hours.
Twitter search

I haven't seen it reported by any outlets outside the Maldives yet, but it would be nice if any of the MSM organizations would at least show the story/pics to one of their experts.

i am afraid your talking nonsense.have you seen SAILBOATS and Yachts being navigated in the aussie races through high winds/waves and your telling me a powered flying boat is going to be overwhelmed by a crummy wave or sea swell?

i think you better go to wikipedia and get some FRESH info about flying boats.

they really are tough and you can't sink them easily as you claim.

how many flying boats have sunk?

tell us.

It was mostly spotted by a satellite and then they would fly to that area to find it but without success.
Last weekend they indeed spotted debris with a plane and boats were on their way to pick it up in a matter of hours.
But after that there has been no news about it anymore, so what they had spotted was not from flight 370.

If there is anything to learn from this, it is to develop a drone with the capability to fly for a few days which has the needed equipment on board to locate debris.
Now they first have to fly to this remote place and can only search for about two hours and then they have to return to Perth.

Nice find, that should help clarify what people are looking at a little better.
Is there a map or anything of this location or where it was found? Im still curious of its relation to where those bodies were found.

To the person that responded to my post, I apologize for not remembering name, just dont want to start another response,:
I know I could have posted the picture, but on the off chance it may be related to MH-370, I wanted to show my respects.

According to the article, it seems a few bodies were popping up. That has to be a bit unusual. Also if you read it, it says the police had no information. That doesnt mean it didnt happen.


Police and coastguards, however, claimed their ignorance about the corpses. Locals said they saw the bodies floating in the river since Friday afternoon. They said dogs mutilated the corpses letting stink spread in the area. But Hatia Police Station OC Syed Md Fazle Rabbi and Hatia Coast Guard Commander Hamidur Rahman said they had had no information about the corpses. The Hatia Upazila General Secretary of Workers Party, Anwar Hossain, said they saw dogs mutilating one body on the bank of the Meghna in Badsha Mia on Sunday morning. He said another corpse was seen in the river in the same village at noon.



Local people had seen another body at Chairman Ghat on Saturday noon. Madhya Char Amanullah Government Primary School teacher Bidhan Chandra Das said they saw three bodies floating in the river on Saturday noon. On information, students of the school and local people rushed to the river to see the corpses


That is three days of spotting with a lot of witness. Just makes me wonder.
Again, Source

And this one. Hinted by a post below


This looks like the nearest candidate to this:

Murgatroid

Note the sand-caked prongs. They look more flat than round, like the flat prongs with bolt holes on that tank.

I've looked around to see if there is a similar make of naval mine, but I have not found any with a closer resemblance than that tank.

Missing MH370: Bodies found near Bay of Bengal not from MAS flight, says Bangladesh official

But of course, it would help if they are indeed identified.

Edit.




Mar 14 (Agencies): The death toll from Tuesday's ferry capsize in the river Meghna rose to 112 after rescuers recovered more bodies Wednesday, officials said.

The Dhaka-bound MV Shariatpur-1 with nearly 300 passengers on board sank in the river after it was hit by an oil-laden cargo vessel around 2:30am Tuesday in Gojaria upazila of Munshiganj district.

"Many bodies are still there inside the ferry. But, we are not sure about the number. We have so far rescued 112 bodies," Munshiganj's additional district magistrate Mahfuzul Haque told the news agency.

I see that, the sealing band around the circumference is very telling, with one of the 'sensor pickups' (whatever) just off the band matches very well with the in situ picture when you reorientate it.

Here is a Boeing schematic drawing in profile,

This is a fire extinguisher fitted to Boeing aircraft.

You can blatantly see the strap marks. The ports. etc etc.

What is quite amazing is, no one has mentioned the dark discoloration around the bottom of the bottle. (I.e Fire)

And also no one has mentioned the missing red sticker service tag.
