Someone commented as follows re the "Crikey" article quoted above:

"TomTom December 26, 2016 at 8:33 am
Imagine what publicity and what kind of a search of beaches would ensue from announcement of $100 reward for any aircraft debris found?"

Out of all the garbage that has been written about this tragedy, occasionally a bit of common sense is spoken and this suggestion is one example. A hundred bucks is a powerful amount of money in many parts of the world.

Every square inch of piece is as important as any.
Quest must continue , a trait that separates the modern from the primates .

Here's more on this topic:

The debris was found by the son of a former international cricketer.

I'm curious, because I haven't seen anything on it. The searchers are looking in a particular area in the ocean for the plane. Debris has washed up on shores of beaches in two places (mentioned here in article). Are they reverse searching? I mean, logic would say start at the beach and work your way backwards (perhaps there are more pieces just off shore from those beaches.) I don't mean to sound ignorant, I just don't know what happens to the search when they find a piece on the beach (wouldn't the likelihood of just 1 piece reaching that beach area be remote?)...

The Australia TSB is searching on the basis of Burst Timing Offset and Frequency raw data from the Inmarsat and aircraft handshake, which is +/-10km inaccurate, not designed for location, and jitters. The ATSB and IG have spent a great deal of effort trying to narrow down the raw data into possible north-south flight path arcs. So no need to reverse track from beach debris. The searchers believe the main wreckage is located somewhere along what they call the 7th arc, but without the benefit of accurate latitude. It is a monstrously large area to search in a deep ocean.

There has been substantial "reverse engineering" going on, but on the biggest scale to trace back to a starting point. The goal, of course, is to find the primary wreckage site. Scientists have been performing drift analysis and they are suggesting that the crash location may be slightly north of the primary search zone. Your point about possibly finding pieces throughout the drift zone is well founded. It is just that there has to be a primary wreckage site that will have the majority of the aircraft. And, it is usually assumed that the primary wreckage site will give the best chance of solving what exactly happened.

Let it rest.
