if it is really debris from the plane, that means this stuff has been drifting everywhere for the past 2 weeks and would be far away from the crash site... how will they know where the plane is exactly? is the black box supposed to be broadcasting some sort of signal?

Yea the black box is supposed to broadcast a signal for up to 30 days but the problem is, I think it could only broadcast from an depth of maximum 300m so if it did crash in an ocean, it may be hard to get a signal

"Officials have confirmed that Flight 370 has crashed into the Indian Ocean and there are no survivors among the 239 passengers on board"

?MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived?: Malaysia Airlines text message kills all hope

They're saying it crashed there but they haven't found any evidence yet?

I think that seems like a gross oversight. Any verification? I'm curious as to what the true number is.

This is based on the fact that inmarstat said that new analysis has pointed out that the plane flew along the south corridor.

Quote:
Mr Razak revealed that new analysis of satellite information from Inmarsat, validated by the UK’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch, “have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth”.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 'ended' in southern Indian Ocean, PM says - World - CBC News

People spotted wooden pallets floating where a few metal parts were found and Malaysia Airlines confirmed that 370 was carrying wooden pallets. Although it isnt 100 percent evidence that the wood was from the missing airline, it is probably the best educated guess so far.

yes but now there's new analysis of data saying the plane was there + numerous reports of debris sightings + another sighting today from a plane and they left a smoke marker for the ships to check out, so all points are leading to that's where it crashed

the conspiracy theorists still aren't giving up though you can see them going nuts in comment sections

and a guy was interviewed on the bbc saying there's only 2 possibilities now "hijacking or pilot suicide"

Such a sad day for the families who held out hope for so many days that their loved ones might have survived. CNN showed a woman who lost her son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter.

The only thing that remains unanswered for now is what took the plane down? Was it terrorism, pilot suicide or a serious mechanical failure? Hopefully they recover the flight recorder or recover bigger chunks of the plane to get an idea what exactly happen to this plane before it went down. A lot of speculation is everyone on board were incapacitated hence the reason it just flew for hours to basically nowhere and finally crashed when fuel ran out.

The crappy part is that even if found the CVR won't tell us what happened when it initially disappeared.

I'm still holding out on the plane being down south til they actually pick up solid evidence, right now it seems a bit like a media attention grab since nothing has happened in the last while.

No, they can transmit a LOT farther than that. The signal could be heard for several kilometers through water, and the black box is supposed to withstand depths of 6000m under water.

It's still going to be hard to find, but it's not like a ship has to be directly over it to hear the beacon or if it's a few hundred meters away they'll miss it. Unless the box fell into a canyon with steep sides that block the ultrasonic beacon.

I stand corrected.

If a plane crashes into the water, an underwater locator beacon sends out an ultrasonic pulse that cannot be heard by human ears but can be detected by sonar and acoustic-locating equipment.
There is a submergence sensor on the side of the beacon, and when this sensor touches water the beacon activates.
The beacon then sends out pulses at 37.5 kilohertz (kHz) and can transmit sound as deep as 14,000 feet (4267m).
Once the beacon begins “pinging,” it pings once per second for 30 days. In rare and severe crash instances, the beacon may get snapped off during a high-impact collision.
Search teams must be about 25km in range of the beacon to locate it. Underwater terrain such as deep trenches could also affect how easily the beacon’s signal can be detected.

They're telling us what we already know...plane crashed into the water but no evidence of exactly where. Way to go Sherlocks in Malaysia.

Definitely looks like they are saying "Ok, we can't find it, and its making us look really bad so... we'll tell them it is 'confirmed' that it crashed and maybe everyone will move on"
