    Kind of crazy to think in this day and age an entire jet could go missing with 230+ people on board.

    My dick is the Bermuda Triangle. That's where the plane went.

    Stolen passports are probably irrelevant. I bet it's similar to what happened in that Air France a couple years ago and pilot incompetence is somewhat to blame for everything

    It's pretty crazy to think a 777 can just disappear...I'm not one for conspiracy theories but this is starting to raise a few conspiracy type questions

    Seriously, I read one expert who said the black box has a "pinger" that can be detected hundreds of miles away.

    One article had an expert who believes the plane may have "disintegrated" at 33,000 feet due to mechanical failure. They also said US spy satellites show no explosion in the area the plane should've been.

    Really, dude? The signal is located through sonar. That means they have to send ships and be in the right area to pick up on it. Radio transmission is mostly blocked through water, otherwise they'd know exactly where the plane was! Derp.

    The transmission signals for roughly 30 days (in the case of Air France 447) and it wasn't until almost 2 years later and underwater cameras/bots and luck that they found the box.

    That expert could use a lesson in radio wave penetration through mediums like water.

    Is there no feasible way these black boxes can shoot out a GPS signal underwater?

    The quote said that water wasn't much of an issue, did mention that trenches were another story.

    Edit - found the quote

    "Shooting out" a GPS signal would imply the ability to receive a signal from multiple orbiting satellites - itself a rather significant problem when the thing trying to get a signal is under potentially thousands of feet of water.

    Let alone the technical hurdles required to get a signal back to the surface for interception by search and rescue missions.
