That suggests to me that there's a pulsing...

But if an aviation ULB can't be distinguished from a similar device attached to an animal, you're depending on the aircraft crashing in an area where there aren't likely to be any tagged animals?

It may be that much is being investigated, but that the public is not being informed, and /or that the western media doesn't know how to dig and probe in the context of an oriental culture.

One sincerely hopes this is the case, but evidence so far suggests such enquiries are being done reluctantly and without enthusiasm.

Several posters have stated that ATC is only available for sectors west and north of KL.

Edited to add: I meant listening in to ATC, not actual control. obviously!

I wonder whose idea it was to look for those pings in the first place? Inmarsat? Boeing? RR? The CIA?

I agree it seems a little serendipitous. However, my own experience of low-flying a/c is that by the time I've heard it and raced outside, I'm looking at a plane moving away from me, with little...

I'm afraid I don't know enough about TCAS to know what will happen if the a/c using it has no working transponder. Certainly, it won't co-ordinate with nearby TCAS systems as a collision advisory. ...

According to Flightradar24 for that time, the only a/c anywhere near Kelantan was a Chinese Eastern Airbus (MU5093) which was at 37,000ft. So unless another plane with no transponder was in the air,...
