Chaucer, you can take the 8:18 PM time to the bank.

I then to agree with you. So far, I have found no evidence to the contrary.


--- Quote ---And if the airliner was on the Western Flight Path (basically on a straight line between the Malay and Canby Intersections), it would be almost directly overhead of Tena Bar at 8:11 PM, plus or minus a minute or so.

But this is where you lose me.


--- Quote ---And if you think Cooper could have been a no-pull and landed just upstream (to the South) of Tena Bar and on solid ground

I think this is possible, but I’m open to the possibility he survived but lose the money ala McNally.

Sorry, you lose me again. I just don’t think the WFP is valid in any way.


--- Quote ---then all that is necessary is for the spring flooding to reach his skeletal remains and move them down to where the money was found.  More money was probably scattered along the downstream movement but some got lodged and was covered by sand and found at a later date by an eight-year-old boy.  Everything else went on downstream.

It is as simple as that and doesn't need a miracle or human intervention.

I agree with this.

Now, humor me for a minute. If the 8:18 notation is correct, AND the FBI flight path is correct, then that would put 305 in the immediate vicinity of the Columbia at the time of the reported oscillations/pressure bump, would it not?

Assuming the FBI flight path is accurate, wouldn’t the 8:18 Harrison note also support my notion of a landing along the Columbia between the bridges?

I was musing how it won't be too long until a drone will be able to travel the entire flight path on a single charge, right at tree level, taking video.

Would have been nice to have the technology back in the day. Better than a SR71.

This bad boy claims 55 min flight time

Not clear what speed the max flight time is at, but max speed is 82.8 km/h (51 mph)
so, a ways to go, but eventually.

it has a load capacity of 2.7kg..if you stripped it down with a light camera, you might be able to jury-rig a heavier battery for more range right now.

Snow I saw a cool patent for extending e drone range. Equip them with inductive charging clamps as landing gear “claws”. They descend onto AC power lines and clamp on.  Then they power down and hang on like bats upside down as they recharge their batteries. Would require some clever engineering but certainly doable.

So are you really studying for an FAA commercial drone license? I see you more as an outlaw type. No registration. No license. And an ADS-B transceiver that takes fake position info from your data feed.

damn. CIA figured out they need to focus on China.

How about those "loitering" SAMs from Iran (358's)
"Though a maximum speed or altitude has not been officially released it is thought that the missile is capable of cruising at around 500 KPH (c.300MPH) at an altitude of between 8000-12000 metres (c.26,000ft-39,000ft)."

jayslick141:
Even if this has already been answered I am respectfully asking someone to answer my questions about the flight path. It is indicated that it was tracked and beacon signals were transmitted every minute or whatever the timeframe was. My question is as follows.

If for example flight 305 transmitted a beacon signal at point #1 how far could the plane get if it veered to the west or east and then veer back by the time point 2 beacon signal was transmitted?

I am not saying this actually happened but I want to know how many miles east or west could the plane veer and then veer back by the time the next beacon signal was transmitted?
