The apparent 'door'was no such thing( pretty sad considering it was portrayed as a definite door), and is actually most likely a random bit of a ladder. As for the rubbish collector. We will probably never know.

Apparently the latest report may be bogus with people taking in shoes and all sorts of other items in the hope they'll get on the news. The local police are not amused.

I reckon the opposite is true.
You'd expect to find parts wash up at a similar time and a similar place, if they were all subjected to similar currents.
Particularly if modelling suggests that this is the location where parts should wash up...

That goes without saying. Particularly when experts have said the currents in the Indian Ocean and items that float may have passed near the island (as you've already clarified) several times already.

Yes some may wash up but reunion is a tiny speck in a vast sea. They will be seperated by hundreds of miles a big whack of time and there wont be many left floating after 16 months. The chances of them landing close together in both distance and time is slim at best and next to impossible at worst. Not impossible but highly unlikely.

Well it's official. The wing piece is from MH370. A lucky find considering it's a tiny spec in an ocean.

I heard today that it was planted by the US gubberment. And it's definitely true. The interwebnet said so.

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
Reporting more on my aviation experiences...

I was up in Corryong, Northeast Victoria during the Melbourne Cup weekend.

A "normal" day over the Upper Murray is one full of planes travelling up-and-down the Melbourne-Sydney flight path.

Usually in a more-or-less straight line, but there's always a few that will deviate off this path en route to their destinations. Some of the Melbourne-bound flights will leave the main flight path over Corryong, turning south towards the Victorian High Country and Gippsland, before recurving west and later descending into Tullamarine (or Avalon, Essendon, Moorabbin, etc - or else continuing on towards places in that general direction such as Johannesburg).

Likewise, some Sydney-bound flights may curve north or northeast away from the mean flight path over the Lake Burrinjuck/Wee Jasper region to the Yass/Gunning/Crookwell area north of Canberra, and then recurve east/northeast and begin their descent into Kingsford-Smith (or Bankstown, or one of Sydney's other airports - or else onto other places that utilise that route, such as Newcastle, Nadi in Fiji, or Los Angeles).

Sunday November 1st was normal for the most part, until mid-afternoon. I was with my family in the scenic Nariel Valley. It was right underneath the Melbourne-Sydney flight path, but without Internet access I couldn't keep track of the flights - or the weather!

A cold front and low pressure trough were ripping across Victoria and New South Wales, slamming into tropical air pumped south from Queensland. Aided by highly unstable conditions and very strong wind sheer, heavy showers and violent thunderstorms erupted along and ahead of the trough, with reports of damaging/destructive winds (including possible tornadoes), along with large hail, heavy rainfall and flash flooding.

A few locally thundery showers popped up around the Upper Murray throughout the day, none severe, only dropping brief shots of heavy rain. The weather started deteriorating ahead of the main potentially tornadic storm front after 3:30pm, following an oppressively sultry afternoon with hot sunshine, blustery northerlies, and insane wind sheer overhead!

Before that, I noticed something very unusual in the skies above the Upper Murray at around 3pm. Planes travelling in both directions along the Melbourne-Sydney flight path were travelling south-to-north directly over the Nariel Valley, before recurving above Corryong northeast towards Canberra or Sydney, or north-to-south after flying in the usual southwesterly direction above Canberra and the NSW Snowy Mountains towards Melbourne). I didn't know it at the time but clearly this abnormal activity was a sign of what was heading our way!

Once out of the Nariel Valley on my way back to Corryong around 3:30pm, I regained Internet access and monitored this unusual flight behaviour - as well as the impending storm front. At this point cloud was rapidly increasing from the west, and it was getting very dark towards Albury/Wodonga, with convection exploding well ahead of the main storm, sparking off yet more locally heavy showers and violent thunderstorms (like spotfires from embers blown ahead of a bushfire). The main storm didn't strike the town until after 6:30pm, but the weather turned angry around 5pm, with fast-moving, potentially severe thunderstorms developing at random, unleashing dangerous lightning strikes and heavy rainfall.

But anyway, aside from the planes in the Melbourne-Sydney flight path scrambling to escape the oncoming storm front, I also noted aircraft travelling between Melbourne and Southeast Queensland (Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast), something I've never noticed over the Upper Murray before! The usual Melbourne-Brisbane flight path lies around 130km to the west!

Many of the flights heading northbound from Melbourne were travelling over Gippsland and the Victorian High Country, then recurving north above Northeast Victoria, the Upper Murray, NSW Snowy Mountains, and Canberra, then northwards to the NSW Central Tablelands before northeastwards to their destinations in Southeast Queensland.

The Melbourne-bound flights, however, were for the most part travelling down to the Parkes/Dubbo area, then southwards towards Wagga Wagga, Albury/Wodonga, Northeast Victoria, the Victorian High Country, and Gippsland before onto Melbourne.

I also observed on plane flying directly overhead from Melbourne to Canberra around 4:30pm. While planes flying from Melbourne to the Capital are frequent over the Upper Murray and NSW Snowy Mountains, I rarely see them during their descent. They seldom fly within sight of Corryong (or even directly above town); usually they're further north behind Mount Mittamatite and over Tintaldra and Tooma.

A very interesting day weatherwise and aviation-wise! smile

Not surprised at all to read this. It would not surprise me at all if it was retaliation for the shooting down of and then subsequent cover up of the Malysian Airlines flight. We live in a crazt world.
