Properly boozed up so. On the plus side, prison in Norway is less unpleasant than most places.

Well, given that we now know the aircraft turned around, skirted around radar, and flew 7 hours into the Indian Ocean, it's not unreasonable to assume that this was a deliberate act.

No, it is not nearly as bad as that.
A definite ULB signal was received. This means the search area can be narrowed very considerably within the radius of ULB audibility. No, it's not the size of...

Yes, there is a general trend towards continual data monitoring. We are increasingly being monitored everywhere now and there is no reason to suppose aviation to be any different. This is not driven...

More than likely.
The best thing Abbot did was to appoint Angus Houston and he should now shut up and let him give out the facts as he has been doing, calmly, clearly and unambiguously.

I think if you let data leak out via private press conferences that way you are almost guaranteeing that people will fill the void with conspiracy theories.

No-one had seen an incident like this before and the Malaysians were clearly not prepared for it. I think seeing the haphazard way that information has come out, it is fair to say that the...

A pilot with marriage problems and strong views on politics, well blow me down.
But a pilot who murders his passengers and hides the plane where it can't be found? Is that likely?

I disagree.
They just had a plane and 239 people disappear on their watch. Despite the fact that no physical evidence has been found, the Malaysian President said the plane is destroyed and all the...

It's not difficult, it is impossible. We haven't been given the data.

Is it just me, or do people here seem to overestimate the capabilities of modern technology, satellites, submarines and vastly underestimate the size of the Indian Ocean?

Oh I think everyone appreciates their work. What is frustrating is that the details of their analysis has not been made public. I don't blame Inmarsat for this, it is down to the Malaysia transport...

Doppler is no use in this case.
For a start Sputnik was moving about 7km/sec relative the ground and because it was in low-earth orbit the motion relative to a ground observer was very high.
