BY FLORA LYIMO~ BREAKING NEWS NILIAMKIA THIS MORNING 'ALL ABOARD BOEING 777 HAD BEEN KILLED'' THE PLANE CRASHED IN SOUTHEN INDIAN OCEAN'' SO SO SAD NEWS ' R.I.P. HAPPY PEOPLE!!
Tragic: The moment a relative of passengers aboard Malaysia Airlines MH370 learned the jet ended its journey in the remote Southern Indian Ocean''
A private British satellite company used a wave phenomenon discovered in the nineteenth century to analyse the seven pings its satellite picked up from Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and determine its tragic final destination.
The new findings led Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak to conclude that the Boeing 777, which disappeared more than two weeks ago, crashed thousands of miles away in the southern Indian Ocean, killing everyone on board.
Investigators working on the disappearance of the plane believe that it had been flown on a suicide mission.
Radar pings from MH370, automatically transmitted every hour from the aircraft after the rest of its communications systems had stopped, indicated it continued flying for hours after it disappeared from its flight path from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Heartbreaking: Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak tells the families of passengers of MH370 that the plane crashed into the southern Indian Ocean and all aboard were killed''
Inmasart's crack team used unprecedented analysis to confirm the worst fears of the families of the passengers on board MH370''
From the time the signals took to reach the satellite, belonging to the UK firm Inmarsat, and the angle of elevation, Inmarsat was able to provide two arcs, one north and one south that the aircraft could have taken.
Inmarsat's scientists then interrogated the faint pings using a technique based on the Doppler effect, which describes how a wave changes frequency relative to the movement of an observer, in this case the satellite, a spokesman said.
Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch was also involved in the analysis.
The Doppler effect is why the sound of a police car siren changes as it approaches and then overtakes an observer.
Mr Razak said that British firm Inmarsat had employed 'a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort'.
Chris McLaughlin, Inmarsat's senior vice president, explained how his firm was able to conclude the aircraft definitely flew south, with assistance from Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch'
Inmarsat's satellite technology was crucial to detecting radar pings, and providing the compelling evidence as to the tragic fate of MH370''
Speaking to BBC News today, Chris McLaughlin, Inmarsat's senior vice president, explained how his firm was able to conclude the aircraft definitely flew south.
He said: 'We took Malaysian 777 airline data and modeled that against the northern and southern path and what we discovered was that the path to the south is undoubtedly the one taken.'
Asked why it took so long, he said: 'We have been dealing with a totally new area, we have been trying to help an investigation based on a single signal once and hour from an aircraft that didn't include any GPS data or any time and distance information so this really was a bit of a shot in the dark and it is to the credit of our scientific team that they managed to model this.'
The new data revealed that MH370 flew along the southern corridor where investigators had said the plane could have travelled along, based on pings sent several hours after it disappeared on March 8.
Investigators had drawn up two huge search areas in two large arcs - a northern corridor stretching from Malaysia to Central Asia and a southern corridor extending down towards Antartica.
Still searching: Commanding Officer of HMAS Success, Captain Allison Norris, is guiding the mission to recover wreckage - but adverse weather conditions that may take some time''
HMAS Success will continue to look for objects spotted by an Australian RAAF Orion aircraft Monday, but the search has been suspended for at least 24 hours'
Malaysian Prime Minister Razak last night delivered the chilling news that all on board had been killed, concluding the doomed airliner crashed into the southern Indian Ocean - where search teams are still scouring for any sign of wreckage.
But that search has been held up by adverse weather conditions, which prompted the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) to suspend operations for at least 24 hours, it was announced Tuesday.
The team trying to piece together just what happened to MH370 are convinced that someone on board the plane crashed it to commit suicide.
An unnamed source told the Telegraph: 'This has been a deliberate act by someone on board who had to have had the detailed knowledge to do what was done... Nothing is emerging that points to motive.'
Furthermore, a source told MailOnline that after the last contact with air traffic control, the plane climbed to 43,000 feet for 23 minutes, which would have knocked the passengers out, as oxygen would only have lasted for around 12 minutes at that height.
The investigators believe that an on-board malfunction or fire doesn't explain the way the plane followed known flight corridors after it turned west following the last voice transmission from the cockpit or the disabling of its tr
The grief-stricken family of an Australian couple on board the flight and officials from Malaysian Airlines spoke publicly Tuesday about the tragic loss everyone on MH370.
Jayden Burrows, the son of Brisbane couple Rodney and Mary Burrows, who were on vacation with friends when the flight vanished en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, said he was 'heartbroken'.
'We dearly love and will miss our mum and dad,' Mr Burrows said at a press conference.
Inmarsat was not immediately available for comment, while the AAIB referred any inquiries to the Malaysian authorities, who they referred to as the 'lead investigators'.
Jayden Burrows, the son of Brisbane couple Rodney and Mary, who were on vacation with friends when they boarded flight MH370, says the family is heartbroken by the announcement that all aboard the missing airliner had been killed''
Malaysian Airlines authorities say arrangements will be made to take families of the passengers killed on MH370 to Australia's west coast, where the recovery mission is based
'Our family appreciate all the well wishes and prayers but now we ask for privacy.'
Malaysian Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya meanwhile promised to arrange for families of the passengers killed on the flight to be taken to the recovery site. The will be given $5000 to cover expenses and the Australian Government will waive visa fees.
He described the news as tragic and defended the airline's decision to notify some family members via SMS before the news was broken late Monday.
'Those families have to live on without their loved ones,' Mr Yahya said.
'When Malaysia Airlines received approval from investigating authorities arrangements will be made to bring families to the recovering areas, if they so wish.
'Our sole motivation last night was to ensure the families heard the tragic news before the world did. We used SMS as a last resort.
'Ever since the disappearance our focus has been to comfort and support the families and involved and to support the search effort.'
