[time-nuts] Aircraft ping timing

They only got one ping from INMARSAT at 64E above the Indian Ocean.
There was no other ping to triangulate the position.

One ping projects a circle on the Earth. The maximum flying range of the
plane determined the ends of the NE and SE arcs of that circle.

The news only gets stranger as time goes on.

Those who say the missing aircraft should be searched along the two
corridors, what measurement are they relying on? I think it is a one-way
measurement of time-stamped pings, which implies good synchronization of
clocks between a geosynchronous satellite and a moving aircraft. Antonio
