    If it was highjacked, then it would have been figured in the plan of course, that a time must pass by before it would be safe to resume the plan to the next level. So it is that we should be alert until this thing is resolved somehow better or minimized to a level that allows everyone to breathe easier about it not being highjacked. So far that hasn't happened, so let's be on alert for a good while longer is what I think, and it could be what is needed as the investigation continues.

    New York pilot claims to have found images of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 | News.com.au

    A PILOT in New York claims he has found an image of the wreckage of MH370 online.

    Michael Hoebel, 60, said he had found an image of what appeared to be the plane in one piece in the Gulf of Thailand — the exact place where the missing Malaysia Airlines plane made its last communication with air traffic control before falling silent in the early hours of March 8.

    The Boeing 777 vanished from radar an hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Why that happened is still a mystery.

    Using the online satellite imagery website TomNod, Hoebel said he was shocked to find the plane resting in what appeared to be an unbroken state.

    “I was taken aback because I couldn’t believe I would find this,” he told a local TV news channel.

    Certainly looks like the plane.

    the only thing that has washed ashore is a boeing fire suppressor tank

    but that was about 1500 miles in another direction

    then they are looking in now

    Cool find, unless the water is super clear, it would be hard to think one could see a plane on the bottom of the Gulf when it is 45m-80m deep IMO.

    light penetrates to about a 100 meters

    so 45 meters maybe

    would like to see on a map where he says this is located

    So the light might bounce off the white wreckage? The Gulf is also known for being fairly dirty and polluted.

    It really does look like the outline of the plane though.

    Should the plane be found would CNN fall silent entirely?

    maybe but it is a very limited article and single picture

    could be an airplane or it could simply be waves reflecting light

    in a random pattern which we interpret as a plane shape

    it would interesting to see where this spot is

    compared to the other landing site in Malaysia

    which the plane flew over
