    The Malaysian Airlines 777 that disappeared a couple years ago.
    The Malays agree to pay $75M if they find it, 0.0 if it is not found.
    And with that bet Ocean Infinity is placing it's existence in harm's way.
    I do hope they find it and give me some metal to touch.
    Planes don't keep secrets for long, once you get your hands on em.

    They need to start looking in the deepest trench in the area. That’s where it will be found.

    I would start looking around at Opa Locka. An awful lot of really weird stuff of very questionable provenance seems to end up there...

    Best wishes to them. That’s a lot of water and a lot of variables.

    Opa Locka as envisioned by Glenn Curtiss of airplane fame.

    They are looking for a giant jet, not bath salts and molly.

    An airport just on the north side of Amelia Earhart Park from where she flew from to Puerto Rico on her trip.

    Ya know...there is that chance.
    Aircraft accident investigations are conducted under an international agreement called ICAO Annex 13.

    How this is supposed to happen is this...
    The Malaysians would contact the NTSB, who are entitled to be part of the Investigation as accredited representatives of the US, because the airplane was manufactured here.
    The NTSB would then assign Ocean Infinity status as "technical advisor to the accredited representative".
    So Ocean Infinity, in a roundabout way, represents/works for the US government. Except that this operation seems to be more of a bounty hunting expedition, which isn't really covered under Annex 13. They're really in the wild west in that regard. I bet that contract is hundreds, if not thousands, of pages long. (Or it's scribbled on a cocktail napkin.)
