    They called off the search. Poor families, waiting all that time for nothing.

    Wild conspiracy theories about Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have now spread to the search ship tasked with finding it.

    Key points:
    ? Ocean Infinity signed a deal with the Malaysian Government to search 25,000
    square kilometres over 90 days
    ? Seabed Constructor went dark on tracking websites
    ? Some suggest search ship retrieved chest from sea floor
    ? For nearly a week some aviation buffs and MH370 followers have been
    debating online whether the missing plane has in fact been secretly found and
    ? if not ? why the ship's Automatic Identification System (AIS) was abruptly
    turned off for several days, preventing online observers from tracking its
    movements.

    The ship, Seabed Constructor, suddenly went "dark" on tracking websites not long after it had completed a curious circle, several kilometres wide, prompting many on Twitter to question what was inside the circle on the sea floor.

    The ship then headed south-west in a straight line, and a few kilometres later turned its AIS off.

    "I'm sticking with my theory that the big circle is a piece of debris, and the line south was to locate the plane. When they think they found it they turned off AIS as protocol," one tweet said.

    "This. Is. Strange. I have never seen a ship do this. Maybe there's an AUV lost down there?!?" said another.


    Seabed Constructor has spent two weeks scouring the ocean floor in the southern Indian Ocean for the fuselage or debris from MH370.

    Its operator Ocean Infinity ? a Texas-based company ? has signed a deal with the Malaysian Government to search a 25,000-square-kilometre area over 90 days, and will receive payment of between $US20 million and $US70 million only if it finds the missing plane.

    Speculations ship made secret detour to chest
    The decision to switch off the AIS prompted some to speculate that the ship had made a secret detour to a nearby shipwreck to retrieve a chest known to be on the sea floor.

    The shipwreck was discovered in 2015 during the previous Australian-led search for MH370, in waters south-west of the current search zone.

    The ship itself has all but dissolved over time, leaving only the metal frame and piles of nuts and bolts.

    But Paul Kennedy, chief executive of Fugro ? the company that carried out the first undersea search ? confirmed in 2016 that a large chest was the only thing left intact.

    What we know about MH370

    Mystery still surrounds the case of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 with investigators still to determine how the plane ended up in the Indian Ocean.
    "It's a big chest, it's about three metres long, maybe one-and-a-half metres wide. And it's still closed," he told a conference in Perth.

    "The whole ship has deteriorated. But there's a big chest in about 4,000 metres of water."

    The ship's identity has not been confirmed, so it is impossible to know what, if anything, is in the chest.

    Aviation buff, John Zwicker, tweeted the chest "may be a box of old socks".

    Mr Kennedy said the WA Maritime Museum had no records of a ship that matched the wreck found.

    But the anchor had "ceased manufacture" about 1820, meaning the vessel could be almost 200 years old.

    Others have speculated that it could be a Peruvian-built transport ship, the S.V. Inca, which disappeared on its way to Australia in 1911.

    Either way, Twitter has run hot with speculation that Ocean Infinity indeed took a deliberate detour to the wreck, presumably to retrieve the chest and any booty it might contain.

    "Tomorrow I'll confirm the GPS I have for #Constructor down to the wreck and back. I've already confirmed it with my source. It happened. It isn't a big deal from my point of view," said Mike Chillit, a long-time MH370 follower.

    He questioned whether Australians had a right to share the spoils of any bounty brought up from the deep.


    Others are sceptical, given the strict 90-day deadline Ocean Infinity has to find MH370 if it wants to receive any payment.

    "I don't see the point of OI going to have a look at the shipwreck now. They have a 90-day window, Malaysian 'observers' on board and a target: #MH370. They can look at it after the search if interested," aviation buff Juan Valcarcel said.

    Seabed Constructor to dock in WA
    Ocean Infinity has repeatedly declined media requests for interview, so it may never reveal why it turned its AIS system off, or whether it used the three to four "silent" days to visit the shipwreck.

    The data behind the MH370 search

    The data gathered during the Australian Government-led search for flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean.
    The AIS was turned on only after the Seabed Constructor was apparently on its way to Fremantle in WA. It is due in port within the next 48 hours.

    A spokesman for the company has told the ABC that the stop is "a quick turnaround of the vessel and then continuing with the search".

    Aviation experts say even with the AIS turned off, the ship is still visible on marine radar systems, but not on live website tracking apps.

    The Malaysian Government last night said the search has so far covered 7,500 of the 25,000-square-kilometre priority area.

    So far two "points of interest" have been identified, but "upon further investigation, these POI's were classified as geological".

    The four-year hunt for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has ended with the latest, privately funded search coming to a close.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-44285241

    US-based Ocean Infinity had been using a deep-sea vessel to survey a vast area of the southern Indian Ocean.

    But it found nothing and Malaysia's government says it has no plans to begin any new searches.

    The plane disappeared on 8 March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

    Official search efforts ended last year and there are still fierce debates about what happened to the flight.

    Grace Nathan, whose mother was on MH370, said she was opposed to ending the hunt.

    "People might think: 'Why are these people still harping on about this, it's been four years'. It's important for people to remember that MH370 is not history," she told the Guardian newspaper.

    8 March 2014: Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 departs for Beijing. The plane loses contact less than an hour after take-off, with no distress signal or message sent. Initial search efforts focus on the South China Sea

    15 March 2015: After evidence emerges that the plane was diverted to the south, the focus switches to the Indian Ocean

    July 2015: Large piece of debris washes ashore on Reunion, an island in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar

    January 2017: The governments of Australia, Malaysia and China announce they are suspending the official search after failing to find anything in the area thought to be the plane's final resting place

    January 2018: Amid pressure from relatives, Malaysia signs a deal with a private company to resume the hunt. Ocean Infinity agree to work unpaid but would have received a reward of up to $70m if it had found the wreckage

    May 2018: Deteriorating weather makes operating in the area impossible, bringing the hunt to an end. Malaysia says it has no plans to restart it

    There is still no answer. Finding the plane, or at least more bits of its wreckage, could prove key but investigators have very limited information about the plane's last hours.

    Experts still cannot come to a definitive conclusion as to whether MH370 remained under the pilot's command, or crashed out of control into the sea.

    One widely explored theory is that the plane's pilot deliberately brought it down.

    But Australian investigators have rejected this, saying he was unconscious during the final moments.

    Technical failure remains another possibility but in the absence of an official explanation conspiracy theories have abounded.

    What happens next?
    Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke says a full report into the plane's disappearance will be published in the future but has not given a date.

    Australia, Malaysia and China have agreed that an official search would resume only if credible evidence emerged on the plane's location.

    Although the Malaysian government says it will not extend the private search, Anwar Ibrahim, who is widely tipped as next prime minister, told The Australian newspaper there was "further digging" to be done.

    In the long-term, a project to map the ocean floor may also offer answers.

    MH370 report: Queensland woman furious at 48-hour notice to attend briefing in Malaysia



    A Queensland woman has been left fuming after being given only 48 hours notice to attend a government briefing in Kuala Lumpur on the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

    Danica Weeks's husband Paul was among the 239 people aboard the Boeing 777 when it vanished between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing in March 2014.

    The Malaysian Government is today releasing its final report on its investigation into the missing plane, but with two days' notice to travel 6000 kilometres, the Sunshine Coast mum said it was impossible for her to attend.

    "I couldn't turn myself around in 48 hours to get there," Ms Weeks said.

    "I wanted to be there, to be briefed on the report, I've been waiting to see what is in it."

    Ms Weeks said if she had been given more notice of the briefing and that the flights would be paid for, she would have made sure she was there.

    She is angry she will miss out on her opportunity to ask questions of the government as to what happened.

    "We miss out on the one-to-one question time," she said.

    Travel confusion 'a slap in the face'

    A representative from a Malaysian support group phoned Ms Weeks early last week and advised there would be a briefing today, but that the families would need to get there at their own expense.

    Ms Weeks ruled that out, but was then advised on Thursday that "they were going to pay for our flights."

    She was also concerned whether any of the Australian families would make the briefing in time.

    "They would be in the same boat as me, with not enough time to organise getting there," she said.


    "I'm very angry, that this offer came with only 48 hours to get over there.

    "I would have jumped at the chance to ask questions about where my husband is, what happened.

    "It is a slap in the face again that we couldn't be there to get the briefing."

    Ms Weeks said her children desperately needed answers she was unable to give.

    "We need to know, we can't just lose a Boeing," she said.

    "This is ludicrous that this can be unsolved.

    "I hoped to have answers."


    Ms Weeks waved goodbye to husband Paul as he boarded the flight from Perth to Beijing via Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014.

    It has become the biggest aviation mystery involving a Boeing 777.

    A privately funded search for the missing plane was called off in May.

    Ms Weeks and the other families had been waiting for this Malaysian Government report which they hope will shed light on what happened.

    But Ms Weeks is not getting her hopes up.

    "Once bitten, twice shy, I'm worried they are not going to give much information," she said.

    She will have to wait until the media briefing from the Malaysian Government to find out what happened.

    "My next step is speaking with the Deputy Prime Minister [Michael McCormack] to ask, 'now that this report is out, where do we go from here?'

    "Our loved ones are on that plane, we want answers. Something happened."

    Ms Weeks's theory remains something happened to the plane and it had nothing to do with the pilot.

    "I believe something happened with the plane and the pilot tried to turn around.

    "The plane might have been on autopilot for seven hours before it dropped in the ocean.

    "That's my theory, but it is still just such a mystery. I hope one day we will have the answers."

    Fury over plan to make movie linking MH370 to organ harvesting conspiracy

    A FORMER network executive who claims she has ?proof? backing up her gruesome MH370 theory is raising funds for a movie.

    Marnie O?Neill@marnieoneill7 news.com.auJULY 31, 20189:29AM

    New findings in report on MH370 mystery

    WHEN former Fox executive Darlene Lieblich Tipton lost her job 46 days after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished with 239 people on board, she was initially greeted with a mixture of sympathy and pity.

    Ms Tipton claimed she had just been sacked as vice president of the network?s standards and practices department for using her work email to organise a fundraiser for families of those on board.

    The truth was far less noble. Ms Tipton had contacted Sarah Bajc, the girlfriend of American MH370 passenger Philip Wood, claiming she and her husband Ken Tipton had proof those on board were ?alive?.

    In a series of increasingly bizarre emails, she claimed Ken had ?visions? of passengers during a stint in hospital for spinal surgery. She promised to reveal the plane?s location and raise millions for Ms Bajc on the condition she agreed to waive all future compensation claims.

    Ms Bajc, an intelligent, rational person who has been interviewed by news.com.au in the past, was shocked by the approaches and alerted Fox, according to pilot and MH370 author Christine Negroni, who documented the bizarre episode in her blog.

    Ms Bajc warned that someone ?posing as a management person working for Fox, or at worst an actual management person at Fox who is capitalizing (sic) on her role with you? had contacted her with the strange claims, Ms Negroni recalled.

    Fox responded by firing Ms Tipton, an Emmy award-winning network veteran of 24 years.

    Undeterred, Ms Tipton went ahead with several online fundraisers, including one called Finding Philip Wood which raised $US100,000 ($A135,000) without the consent of his family or Ms Bajc or any indication as to what the money would be used for.

    Now Ms Tipton is back with another money-making scheme; she?s crowd-funding to make a $US27million ($A36 million) movie claiming MH370 was deliberately disappeared to cover up China?s involvement in organ harvesting.


    Ms Tipton claims the body parts were harvested from members of the Falun Gong group, which is outlawed in China where it?s been labelled a ?cult?, as part of an ?on demand? organ transplant scheme for rich people.

    To make matters worse, she has been using the publicity generated by the Malaysian Government?s final report into the missing plane ? which was released yesterday ? to spruik her movie, titled ?Malaysia 370?.

    And it appears to be working. To date Ms Tipson has raised more than $US760,000 ($A1.02 million) from well-meaning members of the public.


    Darlene and Ken Tipton?s Malaysia 370 website has raised almost $US800,000 from public donations. Picture: SuppliedSource:Supplied


    Darlene and Ken Tipton have told relatives of those lost on MH370 that they know where the plane is and even have mobile phone footage from those on-board. Picture: SuppliedSource:Supplied

    ?Malaysia 370 ... exposes the horrific persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the Chinese government and how it is inextricably tied to the missing aeroplane,? she says of the film?s synopsis.

    ?In China millions of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience have been arrested and sentenced to forced labour camps where tens of thousands have endured tortuous and barbaric harvesting of their organs while fully awake with no anaesthesia.

    ?Their organs are then transplanted into waiting patients, typically foreigners, who have paid high fees.?

    Ms Tipton cites a 2017 Vision Times article quoting exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, claiming ?it backs up the information and cell phone video? from inside the missing plane.

    She has also changed the story of her sacking to suit her new movie-making idea, now insisting Fox sacked her because it was afraid she would ?jeopardise business relations and film financing operations with China?.

    Not only does Ms Tipton repeat her outrageous claims about passengers being alive ? she embellishes them.

    ?Darlene Lieblich Tipton was a vice president at Fox Cable Networks in Los Angeles,? the website states.

    ?During this time, Darlene and a few others were at a private meeting to discuss the contents of a thumb drive. The drive contained detailed information and previously unseen video footage regarding the disappearance of Malaysia Flight #370.

    ?The information and cell phone video, some of which came from inside and outside the plane from March 8-12 of 2014 and some that was taken in a hospital, explained in detail what happened to Malaysia Flight #370, why it happened, and who was responsible.

    ?No one was more shocked than Darlene, and if she hadn?t seen it herself she wouldn?t have believed it,? the website continues.

    ?She insisted that the information and footage should be released to the public as soon as possible, despite overwhelming pressure to keep the information confidential so as not to jeopardise business relations and film financing options with China.

    ?This was unacceptable to Darlene and she secretly made a copy of the thumb drive to be uploaded to YouTube. A few hours before the planned upload to YouTube and just short of 25 years at Fox, Darlene was fired.?

    The new fundraiser has not gone down well with MH370 watchers and investigators, with Ms Tipton coming under fire after spruiking her latest fundraiser on Twitter in the lead-up to the release of Malaysia?s so called final report into the missing aircraft.


    ?If you have relevant information that would help us find #MH370, disclose it,? wrote Dr Victor Iannello, a member of the Independent Group of aviation experts who advised the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) during the first search.

    ?Wait, the plane has not been found yet and no one knows what happened that night to MH370,? said former pilot Edward Baker.

    ?I presume this is a work of fiction? There?s no way of knowing what the passengers and crew did, or did not do.?


    News.com.au has contacted Ms Tipton for comment.
