So is the Bluefin ROV thing on a cable or actually remote operated vehicle?

It's autonomous. The only time the cables are attached are for launch and recovery.

There are other things it could be, but the location matching up to the Inmarsat flight paths, plus the frequency being within range of the recorders, there being two pings right next to each other, and them ending within the right time frame to be the recorders all mean that there's a very good chance they are on top of the wreckage.


Okay.

If they are close then why has nothing been seen?

Not any sign of wreckage nothing in the ocean other than a few pings but no physical evidence.

I know they're searching a big area but they are using multiple airplanes and ships but nothing has been found?!?

Sounds odd.

Because even with hearing the pings, you're still talking about an area larger than Chicago (roughly 234 square miles), holding pieces of a plane that when intact was 209 feet long, by 199 feet wide. Now you're talking about small pieces, and very small pieces in that area. Any floating debris has been floating in currents for over a month, including through storms, massive swells, and all kinds of other weather related phenomenon.

Okay.

It's a large area but why is there no debris?

Shouldn't something have washed up on a coastline somewhere in thirty plus days? Give me a break. The thing never crashed.

Of course, because every square mile of Australia is inhabited with a huge population.

I believe it uses a fiber optic cable but I could be wrong.

It's autonomous. It follows a programmed search path.

I stand corrected so is it programmed to search a specific area? Interesting.

It doesn't posses an intelligence of it's own don't tell me it does.

Edit - you answered my question.

Of course not. They haven't moved that far yet. They're reaching the point where it can see and dodge terrain, but that's about the extent of it.

Look at more then one current map. The debris might be circling the Indian Ocean or passning south a OZ on the circumpolar.

They are doing a wide area scan. That's what the Bluefin 21 is. It's a modular design, that is currently carrying a sidescan and bottom search sonar system. If it finds debris they can mount high resolution cameras and take pictures of what the sonar saw.


Good to know. I haven't been back to the original thread in a while, so, where do they think they have found plane? A longitude and latitude or Google Earth coordinates would be good ;-)

The second set of pings, that were detected by the Australian ship. I don't have exact coordinates, but at least one deep sea salvage person thinks they're on top of it.

Ahhh, the reason I asked was because the last predicted location indicated they would have had to "glide" for about 1000 miles since the fuel would have run out (both trip and insurance fuel). But I expect that in the "official" story that eventually comes out, the plane had an extra 2 hours of fuel on board for some unknown reason.

They had a little extra fuel, but under autopilot it wouldn't have been able to glide.

You're assuming the thing was on autopilot.

You know what happened?

Even if it wasn't, the chances of gliding 1,000 miles are remote at best.

if MAS is really wanting to locate this plane then why hasn't the cargo manifest, plane gross weight and fuel load been published?

Because they don't normally divulge those until the reports are written.
