I still read the news on this topic every day, hoping something will have surfaced (literally or figuratively)...

 Australian authorities say they're not certain when a new search area for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 will be announced, clarifying earlier statements suggesting it would be made public Wednesday.

Martin Dolan, the commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, or ATSB, said Tuesday that the analysis of the relevant data will be completed this week, but that "before we release, we have to talk with the Malaysians who are responsible for the overall investigation."

The ATSB, the agency leading the underwater search for the plane, had said Sunday that the new search area would be announced Wednesday.

"We are waiting for the Malaysians to get back to us on that," Dolan said Tuesday. "I suspect we will know when within the next 24 hours."

Actually they would not have to be in range of a cell phone tower with GPS Chipsets in them.  That is how some of the mapping models work.  GPS Chips work to the GPS satellite.  Tower only needed for phone/data.

 

Actually they would, if you wanted someone else to know your location.

 

What you are taking about is finding your location by tracking the location of various satellites. You track the satellites, they don't track you. If you actually wanted your location to be picked up by someone remotely, you would need some way to transmit that location information out. Either via cell towers (with/without data) or by transmitting something strong enough to be picked up via satellite.

Obviously it was. Why wouldn't it be?

After the claims it was flown around land masses to avoid radars I guess they wanted to clarify. (Not that such a path couldn't have been programmed in.)

It wouldn't need to be programmed in, it would be just as easy to use the FCU, or the Boeing equivalent, to manually adjust the autopilot. Commercial aircraft are never flown manually at high altitudes. Too unstable.

I Noticed a couple of things,

 

1, this thread hasn't been updated in a while

 

and

 

2. I recall something on BBC news (but didn't get a change to stop and watch the article) Today, there was some sort of story regarding the flight.

Has it been located?

 

edit nevermind

found an article on the website

I heard that the alien is attempting to suppress the plane's memory unsuccessfully.  That's why we didn't get the plane back yet.

While we're on about updates, a report has been published, apparently one of the black box's batteries were dead due to an error in maintenance records.

 

But apparently the cockpit voice recorder's battery was fine and would have been picked up if they were in the right search area.
