FACT: contrary to what has been reported by some here, AF447 wreckage was found only after 5 days, and was near to the last known position; thus, we are now currently still inside the timeframe for this accident, and the amount of time taken to find MH370 cannot be considered to be "unprecedented" or otherwise exceptional
Actually not a fact. The wreckage was spotted after TWO days but it took another 3 days to get vessels to the scene.

But if someone suggested 4 days after AF447 had disappeared, that it stalled at cruise altitude and was maintained in a stalled state by intentional control input until impact with the sea, this would have been dismissed as ludicrous.
That very scenario was correctly identified on this very Board.
