Re: No Soft Ditching

It wasn't luck that the last ping was during the descent. The last ping was emitted as the system was rebooting. The theory is that when the fuel ran out it interrupted the power supply (as the engines generate the power). The plane then began its nosedive. The change in attitude moved the fuel, so at least one of the engines restarted enough to generate power, and the system began its reboot process.
