I've always been fascinated with this mystery and new details have come to light:

A new search is under way and will be a special on Discovery Channel. It must be like looking for a needle in a haystack though it is a good hypothesis.

I hope they find it. Mysteries are great, but it's time to find out what really happened!

Yeah, me too. But even with today's technology, it's a bit of a long shot. There is a lot of ocean out there, as well as hundreds of uninhabited islands and atolls.

Very true. For how far we've come it would still be easy to be "lost at sea" even today. At least with our technology now, we may have a real, if not remote, shot at finding something.

More possible evidence. Wish the remains that were found hadn't been lost.

That plane has to be somewhere.

I think some diligent searching will find it . . .

If the search area can be narrowed down, they might actually have a chance to find it.
