    Default Conspiracy theories

    Missing flight MH370, They say now that it is not where they been looking for the last two months, and where they heard the pings coming from (I bet the pings they were chasing was from a great white shark with a tracking device)

    I am really beginning to believe now that the press is feeding us rubbish, and that there is definitely a conspiracy to it.................whats your views

    No theory, would like to know what our cost is for running around chasing this thing. Who do we send the invoice to? I know we share some global responsibility but nobody goes missing in the water around Liechtenstein.

    How much if that is fixed costs though? I think if you had family members who were on the flight the cost would not be a consideration

    Of course I agree, its a statement nobody would argue against.

    So the cost is now $2bn (our bill is $1bn), they still think its somewhere near Australia, its one year on, do we stop looking?

    Nope. Took em 2 years for the other one. By that stage they tone it down a lot though.

    I do wonder if they will ever know what happened.

    They're not the ones funding it so they don't give a sh!t about costs.

    What the real cost out of pocket cost?
    Apart from fuel, any military used costs nothing as they get paid regardless of what they are doing so is not a real cost.

    How many none government have to be paid?

    Malaysia should get the invoice.

    Just wish they would find it, I have a friend who was on the flight. I have no idea where it is I still think the us might have it somewhere, might have landed and taken off again from Diego Garcia.

    I think that most of the search stuff is government (different countries not just us), and hence fixed cost. There are international treaties that define the responsibilities etc for these sort of things.

    This whole incident was botched from the start. I remember hearing one thing and then later that day or the next morning, it would change. Authorities withholding information.

    I'd throw out a reward for finding the plane and let people and private companies go bananas. We might actually get somewhere then.

    They knew where the air france plane was. They are looking for a needle in a haystack with this one.

    I don't agree but I'm probably the exception.

    Personally, would rather see the $$ spent trying to save lives.

    For this to be correct you have to assume everything you get from any news service comes directly from the authorities.

    Is there no chance the news "reports" rubbish based on whispers because they want to be the first with a story?

    Any of you Alex Jones fanboys have any evidence of these conspiracies?

    You could argue if they find it, and then work out what happened, anything done to help prevent that in the future is saving lives. But you do have a point.

    Never believe anything you see or hear in media, anything to get a story and sell papers

    No problem with that if there's a decent prospect of recovery. I don't have an issue so much with following the leads to date, but it seems to be moving into Hail Mary territory now.

    Related to the recent budget:

    THE search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 could end up costing Australia up to $89.9 million — and officials are budgeting for the hunt to last a long time.
    As the search in the southern Indian Ocean continues, Federal Budget papers reveal further funding of up to $60 million will be provided to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau over two years.
    The Joint Agency Coordination Centre, which was established on March 30 to oversee the search for the missing plane, will cost $2 million over two years.
    The Department of Defence will receive a cash boost of $27.9 million over two years for the cost of its role in the search for the plane.
    The actual cost of the search for the plane will depend on how long the hunt takes and how much money is contributed by other countries.
    Air France took 2 years and was proven to be instrument problems and pilot error. If this crash was caused by a rogue pilot, not any mechanical problem, then we may never know what happened to the flight, even if they find the wreck, the cockpit voice recorder I think is on a 2 hour loop, so if the plane flew for more than 2 hours, any audio from the time of the flight moving off course would likely have been overwritten.
