WASHINGTON (AP) — Two weeks before she died from brain cancer last October, tiny 10-year-old Gabriella Miller of Leesburg, Va., delivered a message on YouTube to Congress: "Stop talking and start doing."
By Mark Hosenball and Tim Hepher WASHINGTON/PARIS (Reuters) - Communications satellites picked up faint electronic pulses from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it went missing on Saturday, but the signals gave no information about where the stray jet was heading and little else about its fate, two sources close to the investigation said on Thursday. The "pings" indicated that the aircraft's maintenance troubleshooting systems were switched on and ready to communicate with satellites as needed. Boeing Co, which made the missing 777 airliner, and Rolls-Royce, which supplied its Trent engines, declined to comment. Earlier Malaysian officials denied reports that the aircraft had continued to send technical data and said there was no evidence that it flew for hours after losing contact with air traffic controllers early Saturday after taking off from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing.
