Hopes that the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was found were crushed when the search agency said that the latest signal probably wasn't from the plane. The signal detected was decided to be very unlikely to be related to the aircraft black boxes. The Australian chief search coordinator said that there has been no breakthrough in the search from the plane. Malaysian government officials discovered new information about the flight that leads aviation analysts to believe that someone in the cockpit was directing the plane away from land. Australian officials say that the signal detected was not consistent with those produced by the planes and was most likely created by something manmade. The search party has narrowed down the search area for the plane to about a few hundred square miles in the Indian Ocean.
I think that the disappearance of the airline is tragic and very odd. It baffles me that an entire jet full of people can vanish without a trace. I think the signals detected could potentially be a start in finding the location of the plane and giving peace of mind to the families of those on board. I can only hope that the search is successful soon before the pinger batteries die and there is no more signal emitted by the flight recorders locator.
