It has been announced that in July of this year, Australia will give up the search for the wreckage.

Australia and Malaysia have concluded search efforts. China, who contributed mainly hot air, not funds, made no offiial statement despite most passengers being Chinese.

Hmm, makes you wonder.

Maybe it helped to keep the passengers quiet but I'd prefer a pilot to pay attention to his throttle settings and engine temperatures, not some silly beads.

Patrick Smith, from Ask The Pilot, was rather critical of this.

He makes a good point. Essentially being told to pray means the pilots can do nothing to save the plane and your life along with it. as it was, losing an engine mid-flight is serious, but usually not fatal. This was a contained failure (for an uncontained failure, see the BA 777 in Vegas last year), meaning the engine failed, but its failure did not damage other flight systems, notably not the other engine.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

A good friend of mine in the business has provided a pretty well-balanced synopsis so far;
LDougWicker
FoolsGold has pending comment at that site admitting that it is indeed very rare for a catastrophic incident to occur at flight altitudes, but not impossible. FG points out that uncommanded activation of the thrust reversers would put the plane in a full 90 degree nose down dive and would be an event which accounts for the other known items of: No transponder, No ACARS, No radio chatter, No debris field and No "ping" or activation from an ELT. No glide angle at all. No maneuvering. No ability to move control surfaces at all much less to effect sufficient control surface movement to effect a recovery or even alter the full nose down dive angle.
In effect, the airliner "cratered" with crew unable to do anything about it or even to restore partial electronics or partial hydraulics.

That is why there is no glide and no debris field.

What sayeth the experts?
Well, FoolsGold is an unmitigated idiot and always has been and always will be.

Anyway man made debris from French satellite imagery of a few years ago coincides with reverse drift analysis and the 'new' search area will be just a bit north of the old search area determined by when fuel exhaustion would have taken place assuming ACARS satellite link pinging indicated plane was intact but crew incapable of command input into control system.

Could have been hypoxia, could have been desperate exit from cockpit to avoid fire but such an intense fire would have burned thru so many control circuits as to be likely to cause spurious inputs into control functions. Most likely some catastrophic hypoxia not resulting from failure of structural integrity.

Anyway I am glad that the location has been reliably determined and I hope Malaysia pays for recovery but that Australia performs it.

I am surprized at the lack of public outcry about the discovery. No one is actually doing any further searching. Strange.
I'm tired of all the UFO nonsense but would like to see if there are indications of what actually happened.

They issued the final report.

Doppler shift and satellite motion involve assumptions but fuel tank exhaustion affects direction of final minutes of flight so you have circle of probable error that is atleast 200 miles in diameter. The Russians sabotaged the search by wasting battery time while search vessels were hearing equipment aboard a Russian vessel.
