(Newser) – This time, it's not a satellite image: An Australian civilian search aircraft has spotted debris that could be from the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, reports Australia's News Network. "Yesterday one of our civilian search aircraft got visuals on a number of objects in a fairly small area in the overall Australian search zone," said Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. The plane spotted "a number of small objects, fairly close together within the Australian search zone, including a wooden pallet." The sighting follows two possible satellite images of the downed jet this week—one from China and one from Australia.

Local pallet guys get $3 to $5 each. They drive around all day and then sell anywhere from 30 to 50 of them to the pallet yard. Not bad income for just driving around.

OK enough's enough, wake me when you find the flight data recorder.

Give it up. Spend U.S. money elsewhere or, better yet, not at all. If the plane crashed, those people are long dead. If it didn't crash, we're wasting time searching the ocean.
