They had a much better idea of where the Titanic was than where this airliner is.

Exactly. And despite the fact that Titanic was also a much larger and more intact vessel than an airliner that shattered into tiny fragments, it still took decades to find Titanic.

The Malaysian flight? Be careful to not get caught up in the official story.

Hooey , I must have been watching FOX.
Seriously, I said someday. And I think they will, it may be a while but seems to me the industry has a vested interest in solving the mystery regardless of the cause.

Like the guy in Dirty Harry who was staring down the barrel when Eastwood utters those famous words " do ya feel lucky punk ? "
Moments later the guy answers.... " I got's ta know"

The biggest reason it took so long is the technology wasn't available.

I love the story behind the finding of the Titanic.

A Hollywood movie has more truth in it than anything Ancient Aliens ever showed.

Title is a whole lotta' misinformation.

-They were lithium ion batteries, not lithium polymer batteries.
-It was about 450lbs, not 5,400lbs.

450lbs of lithium is still a giant flameball.

I was going to say Ancient Aliens is more interesting, but then I realized that Hollywood movies have half naked women in them, so scratch that.
