    IIRC, a US TV network show on MH370 had an expert guest view that it was in Boeing's interest that the plane was not found. Because if it was found and they are able to determine that there was no foul play by pilots/crew/passengers and that the plane had malfunctioned, then terrifying law suits against Boeing may ensue. Also affects their future sales of new planes with the 787 Dreamliner having widely reported problems.
    I am shocked that the Chinese are using a handheld device from a rubber dinghy compared to the high-tech towed devices by the ang-mohs.

    The top or bottom is "the high tech device"?

    The bottom one should float better in event of mishap.

    Chuang Tse Tung 庄则栋 was table tennis world champion in 1961 (19 years old) , 1963 and 1965 using a simple no frills made -in-China low tech bat against European top players using the most expensive high tech bats of that era.

    There may be a good reason why PRC Navy reports direct to Beijing first. If they had reported to the OZ led team, it may be buried under layers of bureaucracy, considered spurious and never seen the light of day. But when reported to Beijing first and Xinhua announced to the whole world, then it cannot be dismissed and ignored.

    Anyway, on TV news the others don't look happy that PRC Navy detected 37.5Hz pulse.
    It may or may not be the plane's black box pinger. Wait + see.

    It's the packaging... I don't see that much difference except one is handheld... for all you know, the American one is also made in China..

    Do you dare to carry high tech equipment (supposely very big?) in that kind of small rubber boat?

    Bro the towed array of the HMAS Ocean Shield isn't much bigger..
    The array itself is small, that yellow delta shaped object is not the array itself.

    Why not ? One might be surprised the made in China version might cost 1/100 of the US's version and work as well too.

    I have complete trust in the Chinese equipment. The problem is the conditions in the South Indian Ocean is very rough not conducive to rubber dinghy operations.

    Hiaz, already reported many times. That video was taken in the Atlantic Ocean, 60 to 80 miles off the western coast of Portugal onboard the LPG/C tanker, MV Venere (IMO 9298040) by Ivan Zakryzhevskiy on the 19 January 2013 (original video here).

    Real-time meteorological data within the particular areas of Search and Locate / Search and Recovery (SAL / SAR) operations that I'm receiving now indicated fair weather conditions with slight sea state, 48 hours forecast looking very pleasant as well.

    Why do they use handheld device from a rubber dinghy ?
    The big ship engine produce lots of noise and make it difficult to hear the weak signal from black box.

    The others are also using handheld device from a rubber dingy, the "high tech" equipment is the unmanned submarine that will go down to confirm the signal once the surface vessel detected the signal.

    BTW, those "rubber dingy" are actually Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat (RHIB). They can withstand rough waves very well.

    Massive Budget Cuts Would Redefine U.S. Military

    Now can cut costs - buy hand held microphone on a steel pole to replace Poseidon P8.

    Looking at their working mentality, they don't give a hoot about upkeeping.

    Look at legoland, malls and other major landmarks.........

    Brother, walking in the tunnel to spot defaults is call civil participation and inclusiveness.

    When something wrong happens everyone will be out in the tunnel looking for trouble spots.
