For far less money than has been spent looking for aircraft lost at sea we could easily install ejectable GPS beacons & "black boxes".
The copilot's cell phone connecting to a cell tower in Penang, Malaysia gives lots of credibility to the low altitude reported in that area & the southern arc path proposed by Inmarsat's analysis of engine pings to the satellite & the military primary radar returns. Pings detected by the Towed Pinger Locator & Oil sheen found on the surface may be a clue. But it is still a long-shot to ever find this aircraft.
I wonder how much money the US is wasting on this.

Sources close to investigation claim missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370 may have landed, not crashed
THE search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane may return to the possibility that the jet landed somewhere, according to latest media reports.
The New Strait Times quoted sources close to the investigation saying that the failure to turn up any debris at the current southern Indian Ocean search site was causing a rethink among investigators.
The sources said that they were considering revisiting the scenario that the plane had landed at an unknown location.
Which would explain the ringing phones.
It doesn't seem to explain the pings that were heard? Theoretically --after a number of experts seemed to have 'verified' that the the pings were authentic---authentically from a black box---it is strange that there can be a 360degree turn to 'landed somewhere else.'
-Blue Fin is said to have been searching a plateau area--4,000 feet down--there are drop offs to6,000 or 9,000. I could understand that the black box was heard --on its last hours of power---but that the plane may well be deeper and that will require additional equipment. Hopefully some useful pictures of this area of the bottom of the Indian Ocean have been added to the files.
I heard that something and/or a few items washed up today or was it yesterday (?), and I wonder if it will help anything in this search really ?
Six plus weeks and no evidence of a crash has manifested.
Every seat cushion is a flotation device, we have no floating seat cushions.
Fuel, oil and hydraulic fluid float on the surface of seawater, we have none of that.
Some dead bodies float, we don't have that.
Emergency rafts and emergency escape tubes from planes float, we don't have that.
Some luggage would float, we don't have that.
As a matter of fact, there is nothing that provides evidence that this plane actually crashed, NOTHING.
It is either a grand mystery for the ages or a well orchestrated hijacking of a plane.
I suspect it is the latter.
How does one get an [MENTION=48651]AlicaReik[/MENTION] spam blocker, I wonder?
Regardless it has been over two months now. Time to stop wasting tax payer money on it.
I didn't catch all of this--but at some point---the cyclone/hurricane Jillian struck in this area---debris could have been carried away? The remains of the plane possibly filled with water and sunk to a depth that has yet been discovered. I am going with that.
