MH 370 Search Zone Moved

Brooke talks to aviation experts about the northern shift of the MH 370 search zone, as a new theory emerges that the plane couldn't have flown as far south as authorities had been searching for more than a week.

    I would like to ask if the maintenance records and history of 370 has been seized by inspecters, it looks to me that there was alot of cutting corners and pencil whiping of the avionic systems of the aircraft....thanx

    This is getting very monotonous. I feel for the families but there are only so many ways to say the same thing! This is like watching the same episode of the same show for coming up on a month!

    I would hope this can be answered for me or even read on air. Ok so the Plane takes off for its destination but makes a turn and heads in another direction. Ok so right there it is to me that the plane is being directed by someone other then the pilots. My point is why is everyone hooked on the suggestion that there was a fire or malfunction of the plane? Can't figure that out. If it is in the ocean it either ran out of fuel or crased on purpouse.My thought is someone took over the plane and thats why it turned around and then the pilots tried to over come the hijackers and there was a struggle which would explain why they going from 280000 feet then down then back up etc... Just a thought. Oh and it is totally un excusable that it has taken over 3 weeks to find a 200 foot plane. If I had a family member on that plane, I would be so mad and angry that with our tecnology that we can't find it. REALLY?????

    As for objects found. All it takes is a piece of clothing or even a medical prescription bottle with a passengers name on it, to be proof enough the plane went down....so even objects at first glance look that like debris/junk....should be scooped up and looked at.

    Dear Don,
    I know the families appreciate your coverage and everyone wants an answer to the mystery, however I wonder at what point does the risk to the lives of those searching become a greater concern than recovery of debris? I feel sorry for those families who lost their loved ones while I also feel fear of the loss of life possible in conducting this search.

    Don, the NBC news just reported that the debris pulled out was determined to be nothing but trash.

    I too feel sympathy for Malaysian Authorities and all the searchers involved. Everyone is doing their best to solve this and NO-ONE has the answer or they would be glad to let us know!!! Of course it is tragic for families – we all know we would be devastated if it was someone we loved onboard. BUT to be so silly about shouting for answers is just ridiculous. I remember hearing of a disturbed Mum who kept insisting her 7 year old daughter is ill. Whenever Mum left her anyone the girl perked up and showed no sign of illness but it was put on immediately Mum returned. When the hospital investigated the pain they could find nothing wrong. The Mum kept insisting 'operate' I want to know what is wrong. The doctor said 'we don't operate if we do not know the problem,'. It is so ridiculous to shriek at the Airlines to 'give us the answer'. Where is quiet dignity in the middle of crisis? The media of course loves it – and I think is hyping it. Another reason is that the Chinese do not trust their authorities and some countries have more confidence that their professionals are telling the truth as far as they know it.

    Why does everyone assume it crashed in the Ocean...... If it was hi-jacked it could be anywhere...... The other countries are more concerned about the incident except for Malaysian government.......They tell the families they are lost ....did they see the plane go down......I just do not think it is the ocean........The debris they keep pulling out of the ocean is probally from all these typhoons they have over there,.... you know when complete islands are washed away ....where else could it go ,but float in the ocean.........

    If the plane flew faster then it would have flown further not shorter as has been reported. We know the time of flight from the ping data and Range = velocity x time therefore increased velocity results in increased range

    I would like to know, why! it has never been mentioned to search elsewhere than just in the Indian ocean .
    What about on land or nearby small Islands , like the cocos Island (kneeling sands ) and nearby Islands .Maybe it has been condone .
    Just wondering . GAJRODEO54

    Have anyone looked into the Domino-effect?
    First incident= plane turns-autopilot on until last ping-then
    Second incident=first incident reflects a new unknown incident-which could imply change of direction or/and crash before using all fuel.

    WHAT IF THE PLANE FLEW INTO A CAVE OR IS SITTING IN BETWEEN MOUNTAINS!!!!!!!!!!! HAVE THEY CHECKED THE MOUNTAINSIDES OF SURROUNDING REGIONS AND ANY CAVES NEARBY????. IF THERE WERE ALOT OF PEOPLE IN WATER THERE WOULD BE A SCHOOL OF SHARKS LOOKING TO EAT IN THOSE AREAS. GOD BLESS THOSE PEOPLE I THINK THEY ARE ALIVE SOMEWHERE.

    I HATE THE IDEA OF HARMING THE SEA ANIMALS BUT IF THEY CATCH A WHALE OR A SHARK AND PUT A TRACKING DEVICE ON THEM DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD ROAM WHERE THEY SMELL PEOPLE IF THERE ARE ANY OUT THERE?? AND CAN THOSE BATTERIES BE USED TO POWER A GENERATOR SOMEWHERE ON LAND FOR LIGHT OR WHATEVER.. ANOTHER THOUGHT CAN THEY BE USED TO POWER UP ANOTHER FORM OF TRANSPORTATION UNDERWATER LIKE A SUB OR SOMETHING.

    No MAY-DAY call. if the electronics were all out due to a fire for example why could the pilot not make a cell phone call on the cell phone he made a call on for 2 minutes right before the aircraft took off?

    A stupid question here.

    If the pilots of MH 370 suddenly stopped operating the Boeing 777 and the auto pilot was disengaged; what would the 777 be expected to do?

    is it possible for an aircraft to bodily sink intact and reach a depth where any remaining buoyancy upon reaching a dense layer of seawater to achieve neutral buoyancy? Thus remaining at that depth in suspension and essentially flying underwater, causing the black box signals to shift with its drift? far out there but...??

    Ashleigh,
    Why does the flight crew have access to turn a transponder off?? Does not make sense.

    It has been stated that there is about 3 meters / 10 feet of muck at the bottom of that part of the Indian ocean and that there are “mountains” there. So I’m wondering if the plane sunk to a point on one of those mountain sides and caused a huge muck slide, with the plane sliding down to the bottom of a valley and getting completely covered with muck. I haven’t heard anyone discuss this possibility? Anyone?
