Malaysia Airlines 'loses contact with plane' (and search effort updates)

^ Maybe the pilots saw a chance to get rich, or they were over-powered, and others stole the plane.

 

steal a 777? for what? to serve as a prop in a rich gangster garden? :laugh:

 

an 777 isn't a small airplane; it requires tremendous amounts of fuel, it's loud and it's damn big. It can pass unnoticed for too long.

 

Also selling to whom?

- drug cartels or warlords? good luck trying to bring the airplane in one piece to them, not forgetting the amount of fuel it had if hijacked. Also they would had a hard time getting the plane to land or take off.

- the black market for parts? any airline would be in major trouble if found buying parts in black market, since the parts are traceable.

 

 

so yeah, that theory is not only flawed but if it happened then it had to be someone incredible dumb to do that. :rofl:

^ Many guests on the News shows consider the exact same 'theory'.

 

And it is far from the first time planes have been hijacked.

Let's be honest though: we are really talking about editorial channels masquerading as news channels.  :laugh:

Here is my problem

 

2 (or more) people stolen passports... in separate incidences... in different places, difference years. BOUGHT their tickets at the SAME TIME, or even maybe know each other... then this plane vanishes.

 

And now, everyone are saying that kind of probability is very usual? They are definitely no longer considered terrorists...?

 

HUH?

 

That baffles me. I know chances like that can't be that high, people.

To sell it? that's dumb, sorry. To hijack for terrorists purposes? yeah it could but how an hijack could make an 777 disappear (not being able to find it)?

I think the latest news already proved that it disappeared (NOT being able to find it) SUCCESSFULLY

disappeared != hijacked and fly to elsewhere.

And, you know where this plane is right now? How can you be sure it's not hijacked?

 

The last time, report say it flew over an island, way off course.

 

Doesn't that tell you maybe it's hihjacked?

The article he linked to was in fact 2 days old.

The link wasn't there when he posted first, and it links to Yahoo Singapore which isn't US news ;)

^ It has happened before, in 2003.

 

Try reading.

Yes with a plane from the 1970s. You could probably botch together a repair job and get that thing flying. There's almost no fancy electronics in that.

A 11 year old 777? That plane has pretty advanced technology and a lot of parts will be proprietary from Boeing. Therefore if something important breaks then it's pretty much scrap the plane and move on.

The 777 also holds something like 60,000 gallons of jet fuel, which isn't cheap. And you can't exactly get 60,000 gallons of jet fuel sent to your hidden in the jungle airport without someone asking questions.

look, an 777 has several sensors and alarms; how could an hijack turned off all of those? just curious.

 

not to mention how could someone even enter the cabin because if i recall, because of 9/11 several measures where made to prevent unauthorized personal to enter the cabin. so unless it had a catastrophic failure (or it was attacked, missile maybe?) because not even one distress signal was made, i don't see how that could happen.

I don't know, but I think Terrorist will find ways that you'd be surprised, cuz they are good at it.

 

 

Impossible for average human beings, doesn't make it impossible for terrorists with a lot of training and skills.

 

I DON'T think you can ever underestimate what terrorists out there can do, that you yourself or myself have NO idea of doing.

To me, mechanical seem to be the LEAST likely possibility, due to the lack of communication the plane, we now know the plane did not explode at the point it turned around.

 

 

Plenty of time to be able to communicate, but they didn't.

I vote worm hole.

I pretty much kept thinking of the episode of the twilight zone titled "The Odyssey of Flight 33". Another episode called "The Arrival" also rings a bell for what is being said here  :laugh:

Malaysia Airlines Plane Search Continues As Air Force Chief Denies Media Report

Malaysia's air force chief has denied saying military radar tracked a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner over the Strait of Malacca, adding to the mystery surrounding the fate of flight MH370, which vanished on Saturday with 239 people aboard.

 

A massive air and sea search now in its fifth day has failed to find any trace of the Boeing 777, and the last 24 hours have seen conflicting statements and reports over what may have happened after it lost contact with air traffic controllers.

 

Malaysia's Berita Harian newspaper on Tuesday quoted Air Force chief Rodzali Daud as saying the plane was last detected by military radar at the northern end of the Strait of Malacca at 2.40 a.m. on Saturday, hundreds of kilometres off course.

 

"I wish to state that I did not make any such statements," Rodzali said in a statement on Wednesday. The air force chief said he had merely repeated that military radar tracking suggested the plane might have turned back.

 

A senior military officer who had been briefed on the investigation told Reuters on Tuesday that the aircraft had made a detour to the west after communications with civilian authorities ended.

"It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the officer said.

 

Malaysian authorities have said previously that flight MH370 disappeared around 1.30 a.m., roughly midway between Malaysia's east coast town of Kota Bharu and southern Vietnam, about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing.

 

The Strait of Malacca, one of the world's busiest shipping channels, runs along Malaysia's west coast, while Kota Bharu is on the northeast coast.

After the comments from the officer, a non-military source familiar with the investigations said the reported detour was one of several theories and was being checked.

If the plane had made such a detour it would undermine the theory that it suffered a sudden, catastrophic mechanical failure, as it would mean it flew at least 500 km (350 miles) after its last contact with air traffic control.

 

A spokesman for the Malaysian prime minister's office said on Wednesday he had not been informed by the military of evidence showing the plane had recrossed the Malay Peninsula to reach the Malacca Strait.

"The people I checked with were not aware of that," spokesman Tengku Sariffuddin Tengku Ahmad told Reuters.

I'm sorry but this is turning into giant cluster**** 

 


Weird, works for me. Here's another one:

 

 

I posted a SS of that movie few pages back. Still have a DVD copy

It really is. Vietnamese officials (as well as others) said on saturday that they were surprised about how tightlipped their malaysian partners were.

Apparently if Malaysia found something, they wouldn't tell the other parties involved in the search....they'd tell the media. So Vietnam, for example, would learn more from what the media was reporting than from their own ####ing search partner.

Then you throw in the constant backpedaling and the hidden information that keeps popping up. "Oh our military radar spotted the plane here, but we didn't want to tell anybody until 3 days later"

And then many members of the Malaysia airlines support team that they sent to Beijing to console relatives didn't speak any mandarin and barely spoke English.

Jesus ####ing christ get your act together and realize all the countries are in this together.

in 2011, the co pilot let a couple of chicks in the cockpit,and was smoking cigarettes

Roos told CNN on Wednesday that she and a friend were waiting for a flight in 2011 when Hamid and another pilot asked them if they wanted to sit in the cockpit during the flight. Roos and her friend agreed and went to their assigned seats when they boarded. Later they were escorted to the cockpit, she said, and they were there for the rest of the flight.

Such a practice would be illegal on U.S. carriers, but not necessarily so on international ones, CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest said.

Try reading.

 

They concluded that the 727, which was parked for a year, and was undergoing maintenance, had crashed.  The reported sighting of it was a different plane in Guam.  How's about you try reading, especially about topics you know absolutely nothing about.  IE.  Planes.
