PERTH, Australia — Official says search ship has detected signals consistent with transmissions from black boxes.





Two more signals detected in MH370 search /


Two more acoustic signals have been picked up by an Australian navy ship in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.

Officials have described the development as "very encouraging".

British Navy ship HMS Echo is now in the area where two Chinese vessels detected a lead in the hunt for the missing Malaysian airliner.

Retired Australian Air Chief Marshall Angus Houston has stressed the two electronic pulses that a Chinese ship reported on Friday and Saturday had not been verified as connected to the missing jet.

Now the British navy's HMS Echo, which is fitted with sophisticated sound locating equipment, is in the area and will shortly commence its search.

"I (have) made clear, that these signals and the objects could not be verified as connected to the missing aircraft ... that remains the case," says Mr Houston.





However, sceptism is swirling over the method used by the Chinese crew to detect the "pings".

Aviation analyst Geoffrey Thomas says; "It was done by holding a hand held hydrophone off a dinghy in the ocean outside the search zone."

"It's very unlikely it picked it up but it's technically possible according to the manufacturer of the hydrophone."

New reports claim Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may have taken a different route to try and avoid radar detcetion.

After reviewing radar track data from neighboring countries, officials have concluded that the passenger jet curved north of Indonesia before turning south toward the southern Indian Ocean, a senior Malaysian government source told CNN.

They also report that investigators haven't said who they think might have flown the plane off course or why, and that mechanical problems haven't been ruled out.

CNN aviation analyst Miles O'Brien says that an experienced pilot who had flown in the region would know where radar coverage begins and ends and where radio communication handoffs occur.

After weeks of fruitless looking, the multinational search team is racing against time to find the sound-emitting beacons and cockpit voice recorders that could help unravel the mystery of the plane. The beacons in the black boxes emit "pings" so they can be more easily found, but the batteries only last for about a month.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, and investigators believe it veered way off course and came down somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean, though they have not been able to explain why it did so.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
