  2. Encontrada mais uma parte, a 15 milhas do local onde o flaperon foi achado. Possivelmente uma porta. Excerto relevante: A second object – possibly a door – believed to be part of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370 has been found washed up on the Indian Ocean island of Réunion. The object, a metal sheet featuring Chinese symbols, was discovered by a passerby in Saint Denis, 15 miles (25km) from Saint-André, where the first piece of debris was found. Authorities immediately cordoned off the perimeter and the object was taken away for further analysis.

  4. A coordenação das buscas passará agora a cargo de um time liderado pelo ex-chefe da defesa da Austrália, Angus Houston, e ficará baseado em Perth. Creio que até que os destroços sejam encontrados, a Malásia deixará de ser a protagonista, haja vista a notável incompetência demonstrada -- mesmo considerando as dificuldades. Um imenso vexame internacional, e mostra que construir arranha-céus e atrair eventos esportivos como corridas de Formula 1 não bastam para fazer com que um país se torne desenvolvido, nem provam que o sejam. ============ Flight MH370: former Australian defence chief to co-ordinate search Angus Houston will head a joint agency coordination centre in Perth to oversee efforts to find debris from Malaysia Airlines flight Oliver Milman theguardian.com, Sunday 30 March 2014 03.28 BST Former Australian defence force chief Angus Houston will co-ordinate international efforts to find the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, ahead of a fresh attempt to locate the aircraft’s debris. Tony Abbott said Houston, a retired Air Chief Marshal, will head a new joint agency coordination centre, based in Perth, which will oversee the efforts to find the plane. The agency will help co-ordinate Australian and international efforts to locate the flight, which went missing more than three weeks ago, carrying 239 passengers and crew. While Malaysia is officially responsible for the recovery of the flight, which departed Kuala Lumpur bound for China on 8 March, the proximity of the search area to Australia means operations will be overseen from Perth. The prime minister said Houston was an “individual of enormous experience and great skill” who would lead an agency that provide a single contact point for families to get relevant information on the search. “This multi-country search is a powerful example of international cooperation at a time of adversity,” Abbott said. “Military air crew from Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea and the United States are searching for possible debris from MH370. “They have been conducting these searches over a very large area in challenging conditions, far from the Western Australian coast and in variable weather.” Abbott confirmed that passenger family members heading to Australia will not have to pay a visa fee. The search for the remains of the plane has shifted to a different part of the southern Indian ocean, after fresh analysis of satellite data. Objects already retrieved from the ocean by a Chinese ship off Western Australia are not part of the missing plane, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority has confirmed. The objects are likely to be fishing debris or rubbish. The new search area, 1,900km from Perth, will be scoured on Sunday by a total of 10 aircraft, from Australia, Japan, China, Korea, the US and Malaysia. A total of eight ships will also be deployed in the search for the plane amid an unfavourable weather forecast.

  5. Buscando na internet, aparentemente a Inmarsat teria incluindo o efeito Doppler nos seus cálculos, e comparado com a trajetória de outras aeronaves. Nesse caso, e considerando que a fonte não é o governo da Malásia, mas uma empresa na Inglaterra, consigo agora crer que seja mais confiável. Fragmento da notícia logo abaixo (notar que não há nada referente ao MH370 nos press releases): "We looked at the Doppler effect, which is the change in frequency, due to the movement of a satellite in its orbit. What that then gave us was a predicted path for the northerly route and a predicted path the southerly route," explained Chris McLaughlin, senior vice president of external affairs at Inmarsat. This information was relayed to Malaysian officials by 12 March, but Malaysia's government did not publicly acknowledge it until 15 March, according to the Wall Street Journal. Malaysia began to redirect the search effort that day, to focus on the areas the information described. However, some officials involved with the probe warned that the lost days and wasted resources could impede the investigation. Meanwhile, Inmarsat's engineers carried out further analysis of the pings and came up with a much more detailed Doppler effect model for the northern and southern paths. By comparing these models with the trajectory of other aircraft on similar routes, they were able to establish an "extraordinary matching" between Inmarsat's predicted path to the south and the readings from other planes on that route. "By yesterday they were able to definitively say that the plane had undoubtedly taken the southern route," said McLaughlin. These pings from the satellite – along with assumptions about the plane’s speed – helped Australia and the US National Transportation Safety Board to narrow down the search area to just 3 per cent of the southern corridor on 18 March. "We worked out where the last ping was, and we knew that the plane must have run out of fuel before the next automated ping, but we didn't know what speed the aircraft was flying at – we assumed about 450 knots," said McLaughlin. "We can’t know when the fuel actually ran out, we can’t know whether the plane plunged or glided, and we can’t know whether the plane at the end of the time in the air was flying more slowly because it was on fumes." Inmarsat passed the relevant analysis to the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) yesterday. The cause of the crash remains a mystery.

  6. É o mais provável, mas o governo da Malásia está jogando com as probabilidades para ter algo a dizer para as famílias e para o mundo. Das evidências apresentadas na imprensa internacional, nenhuma sugere que qualquer fragmento da aeronave tenha sido encontrado, apenas objetos inespecíficos -- lixo espalhado pelo oceano. Nada mais. A própria Inmarsat nada declarou. Vamos aguardar.
