I just red somewhere that the last "ping" was the only one recorded by
Inmarsat system, Pings up to that point were presumed to occur due to
known reporting intervals. So there is no "track".
The Inmarsat data is a red herring. The plane could have ditched into
the water 85 minutes after the "incident:, at location near last radar
contact and floated with Inmarsat operating on service battery for hours.
The ELT's used in this aircraft have been implicated in two fires due to
shorted lithium battery wires. There was an AD/Recall issued. No
reports whatsoever about the ELT being activated, so if it burned......
Good only for 48 hours or so anyway if looking in the wrong place.
Maybe there is a market for Orbcomm asset tracking transmitters mounted
way up in an inaccessible location of the tail with own back up battery
