Subject: Malaysian Flight 370 missing

Written By: MaxwellSmart on 03/11/14 at 12:09 pm

http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/10/world/asia/malaysia-airlines-knowns-unknowns/

A commercial jet airliner has been missing for over 72 hours.  I'm perplexed.  None of the theories of why make much sense.

It's a Boeing 777 that departed from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Saturday, March 8th just after noon local time.  It was destined for Beijing.  No sign of it since.

If it crashed, it would have sent out distress reports.  If it was hijacked, the hijackers would have made demands right away.  Maybe hijackers overpowered the crew and crashed it into the ocean.  They're searching an area bigger than the size of Pennsylvania and haven't found any debris or oil on the water that would indicate a crash.  Maybe extraterrestrials abducted it.  Who knows?  I hope the figure it out in the next day or two.  Scant hope for survivors, though.

It's a sad story.  How can a plane just vanish like that.  If it crashed, there would be the signal from the black boxes but there is nothing.

The Black Box should emit signals up to 30 days, but nothing is being picked up.

I'm thinking maybe the pilots set the wrong altitude course and the plane glided gracefully into the ocean the way an Olympic diver makes no wake.  If the plane didn't break up on impact and just immersed and sank there would be much debris....

That doesn't make sense.  A dozen things would have to go wrong simultaneously and a dozen other things would have to be ignored.  Each theory crumbles like that.

But I do think it was a perfect storm of errors in the Twilight Zone, whether or not hijackers were involved.

This indeed odd.

I don't think it is a terrorist incident, because nobody has come forward to claim "credit".  (I'm kinda surprised nobody has claimed credit anyway).

I am leaning towards a mid-air fuel tank explosion.  But the last time that sort of thing happened, radar still showed the bigger pieces as they descended.

If the pilots decided to do a suicide run, that still does not explain the sudden absence from radar.

But given the totality of the info I'm calling it an explosion at this point.

True, true.  But if the box is underwater you have to at least be "listening" fairly close.

I just read an article that says Malaysian military radar picked up the airplane hundreds of kilometers from where it was supposed to be, far west of where everybody has been looking.  So now the search area is expanded way out there too.

The "military radar" story sounds a little fishy to me.  When you see what the path of the aircraft would have been to get where it was spotted, there would be all sorts of radar tracking 'pings' along the way.

Wherever it is, it's probably not where people have been looking, but it's a big ocean, and it's a big countryside.

It's a fascinating problem.  Because the world's covered in big oceans and a big countrysides, it's expensive to fit every commercial aircraft with gear that automatically phones home with telemetry during every phase of a flight.  Unless proven otherwise, the most likely hypothesis is some sort of accident, not malice.

If it was a sudden explosion wouldn't the aircraft automatically send a signal to a satellite or a radar station or something?

Yeah, we tend to overlook how HUGE the oceans and the wilderness areas are.  There are a million places something the size of a 777 could get lost in that part of the world.  It's just weird because it seems like everything is being watched everywhere all the time.  They can see a mouse whack off from outer space, but they can't find an airliner!

Nope.  The plane doesn't necessarily have two-way satellite communications, and even if it did, how would it know it exploded? 

There are devices that will reliably go off after a sufficiently strong impact, but that doesn't mean anyone is around to hear them.  Radio doesn't work underwater.  Even sonar's range is limited.  The sonar pings have to come from something that's basically part of the black box, and that puts some pretty big limits on battery life and range.

Going with the satellite idea, even that's not foolproof.  Put yourself in the position of the CPU on an airplane that's just blown up.  All you know is that you're no longer receiving sensor data from the parts of the plane that aren't there anymore.  "OK, that's weird", you think, "I don't know what's wrong, but let's tell someone about it."  So you yell for help through the satellite radio, whose antenna is, after the explosion, in the belly of a shark, while you, despite being installed only a few feet away from the antenna, tumble silently through the air at 35000 feet.  You must scream, but you have no mouth.

Maybe the pilots dove for the deck to hide amongst the radar clutter and snuck the plane to an unmarked landing strip in the middle of the jungle before running out of gas.  Maybe they blew up at altitude and didn't have anything left with which to communicate as they fell into the drink or the ground.  Maybe they got confused and their last thought was "What's a mountain goat doing way up here in this cloud bank?" and they also managed to hit hard enough that the emergency beacon failed on impact.  We don't yet have enough information to reliably guess.  It's an interesting problem.

LATEST:

Military radar-tracking evidence suggests a Malaysia Airlines jetliner missing for nearly a week was deliberately flown across the Malay peninsula towards the Andaman Islands, sources familiar with the investigation have said.

Two sources said an unidentified aircraft that investigators believe was Flight MH370 was following a route between navigational waypoints - indicating it was being flown by someone with aviation training - when it was last plotted on military radar off the country's northwest coast.

The last plot on the military radar's tracking suggested the plane was flying toward India's Andaman Islands, a chain of isles between the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal, they said.

Waypoints are geographic locations, worked out by calculating longitude and latitude, that help pilots navigate along established air corridors.

I can see one terrorist angle.  Steal the airplane for a future 9/11 style attack.  That would explain what we see here and why nobody is claiming credit.  However it still leaves problems:


Still... Why no radar tracking?  The errant flight path would have taken them over populated land so they could not simply have "skimmed the sea".

Yeah, as the time goes by, it's getting weirder and weirder.

Idea:  Grab the plane, dive to the deck to avoid radar coverage, land it somewhere long enough that you can refuel it, shoot the passengers, take off again, do something naughty!

Problem with that idea:  ...but n abandoned runway that's big enough that you can take off again is pretty long, and there aren't that many of them.  You have to refuel, take off, fly under the cover of radar to another such runway between satellite overflights. 

Compromise:  Same dumbasses grab a plane, shut down transponders, dive beneath the radar, only to find that they've run out of gas and have to ditch in the water, and the plane sinks intact.  Something like that actually happened to an Ethiopian flight in 1996.

Problem with that idea:  ...but if that happened today instead of 1996, to MH370, I think that the Gs involved in a water landing would have automatically activated emergency beacons. 

Unrelated idea:  Someone else mentioned decompression and crew can't get their masks on in time.  That scenario actually happened to a Greek flight in 2005.

Problem with that idea:  If that happened to MH370, the plane should have remained on the radar.

Compromise:  Maybe the lights go on, pilots don masks too late, lose consciousness while diving for the deck to get more oxygen. 

Problem with that idea:  The plane smashes into the ocean and makes a mess that someone should have seen by now.  Maybe the pilots black out before they dive for the deck, and the dive is shallow enough that some miraculous interaction of trim and ground effect enables the plane to fly by itself at sea level until it runs out of gas.  That also doesn't work, because if the plane is going down slowly enough that everybody dies from lack of oxygen, it would still be on the radar.

Curiouser and curiouser.

I'm still stumped, but I'm increasingly fascinated.

The communications systems of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 were deliberately disabled, Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak has said.

According to satellite and radar evidence, he said, the plane then changed course and could have continued flying for a further seven hours.

He said the "movements are consistent with the deliberate action of someone on the plane".

It didn't occur to me that hijackers would steal the plane to use later because you need, what, a 5,000 foot runway and a control tower for landing and take-off of a 777.  You can't just chug into Bud's Airstrip in East Bumblef*ck undercover of night.  That is, unless the hijackers know something I don't know and there is sure as sh*t a lot of stuff I don't know, so...maybe?

If I may conjecture, a stolen commercial jet liner is a piss-poor tool for terrorists, at least on a second run.  Even if terrorists got that sonofabitch back up into the sky, every air force in the world is looking for it, so the terrorists would find themselves strafed by fighter jets who'd be more than happy to shoot their plane into the drink.

It probably didn't occur to the hijackers either.  As you point out, even if they land it and manage to take off again, they'll be blown out of the sky as soon as they enter any country's airspace.  The funny truth is that despite them getting lucky on 9/11, we've never been dealing with the "A" team of bad guys. 

Boomers/Xers will get my drift - compared to the Russians, the terrists can't really do jack, and never could.  As an Xer, I'm sorry that me, and my fellow Xers (and our parents, the Boomers) took too long to figure this out.  We treated the terrorists as though they were a threat on a par with a superpower.  At the time, we thought they might have been able to get to the level of blowing up a few cities, and the paranoia we had left over from the cold war led us to overreact to a bunch of people who barely had the backing of half a dozen third-world hellholes.

Millennials/Homelanders - I'm not sure if this puts it in perspective, but imagine what the world would look like if "the terrorists" had 10000 nuclear missiles that could be launched with the push of a button.  We grew up with the possibility that every city would be wiped out within 20 minutes, and you didn't.  We overreacted to a bunch of people who got lucky, once, more than a decade ago, and all they managed to do was knock down a couple of buildings.  They did a few billion dollars of damage, which cost us less than Hurricane Katrina did to New Orleans.  They killed as many people as automobile crashes kill every month.  And that's all they did, and it's all that they will ever be able to do.

To prevent this from happening ever again, we spent trillions of dollars spying on our people like the KGB/FSB did/do, built censorship into the Internet like the Chinese have, and hired thousands of goons whose job it will be to fondle your kids every time you fly to Disneyland.

Residents on a remote island in Maldives claim they saw a ‘low-flying jumbo jet’ matching the description of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane in the hours after it disappeared.

Several residents of Kuda Huvadhoo, in Dhaalu Atoll, said they saw a white aircraft with red stripes flying so low over the island the plane’s doors were clearly visible.

Islanders claim they were disturbed by an incredibly loud noise at about 6.15am local time on March 8 and saw a plane travelling from north to south-east, towards Addu – the southern tip of Maldives, it is reported.

The alleged sighting – around 2,000 miles away from Kuala Lumpur – came hours after Beijing-bound flight MH370 vanished on the same day with 239 people on board.

Investigators now believe it was deliberately steered off-course after it took off from the Malaysian capital.

Australia is investigating two objects seen on satellite images that could potentially be linked to the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, officials say.

Planes and ships from Australia, New Zealand and the US were heading to the area 2,500km (1,550 miles) south-west of Perth to search for the objects.

The largest appeared to be 24m in size, maritime authorities said, but warned they could be unrelated to the plane.

Australia has been searching in the southern Indian Ocean for the aircraft.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March when it lost contact with air traffic controllers. A total of 239 people were on board.

Twenty-six nations have been involved in a major search for the missing plane, which Malaysia says was intentionally diverted.

Investigators have been scrutinising the backgrounds of both the crew and the passengers, but have so far identified no evidence of terror or other potentially relevant links.

A number of sightings of possible debris have been investigated in the course of the search but so far none have proved to be linked.

"Oh, we found debris" (no bodies, no survivors, mind you)


To be honest, I don't think Malaysia is telling the whole truth and that is what is upsetting the families more.  I will honestly be surprised if they do ever find the plane.

Frankly, I didn't care at all about this flight "mystery" until this morning, when I was flipping channels in search of my 10 am cartoons.
I passed CNN and they were saying how the families of the 200 some-odd victims were notified by TEXT MESSAGE that thier loved ones had perished.

I was done, I went ape sheesh and literally woke my poor father up yelling. I mean I couldn't even fathom it. The people were waiting WEEKS for news and then it comes in the most IMPERSONAL way I've ever heard. I lost it. I mean I think the people at least rated a phone call of condolences. Is this where society has "advanced" to? Texts aren't for death notifications. It's for asking your buddy if they want to see a movie tonight, or go for a burger for lunch. not "Hey your loved one is dead, sorry!"
April 30th makes six years since my mother died. I was called PERSONALLY by a woman named Kathleen from the Medical Center of Southeast Texas and told of my mom's death. I conversed with a real, flesh and blood human who stayed on the line the entire time I went running through my house, crying and screaming.
These poor people didn't have that. I think it is so COLD, so HEARTLESS, and makes no sense. The Asians are very technologically advanced and I don't understand how they couldn't set aside a group of folks to make those calls, rather than typing it in and punching send.
I have lost faith in humanity. I've said it before, but damn it, I mean it this time. I'd have never ruined a bunch of people's hopes, dreams and live via a mass message.
You really dropped the ball Malaysia.

The area where acoustic signals thought linked to the missing Malaysian plane were detected can now be ruled out as the final resting place of flight MH370, Australian officials say.

The Bluefin-21 submersible robot had finished its search of the area and found nothing, they said.

Efforts would now focus on reviewing search data, surveying the sea floor and bringing in specialist equipment.

Flight MH370 went missing on 8 March as it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Using satellite data, officials have concluded that the airliner, which had 239 people on board, ended its journey in the Indian Ocean, north-west of the Australian city of Perth.

No trace of the plane has been found and there is no explanation for its disappearance.

I have heard that from the beginning.  Although, if they did get taken elsewhere, I have a feeling they are not being held hostage.  They were probably killed.  The only way the type of person would hijack a plane would keep hostages is if they wanted something.  We would have heard something by now.

A bank employee has been arrested by police investigating an “inside job” to drain £20,000 from the accounts of four passengers on missing flight MH370 .

The 33-year-old HSBC employee and her husband were held after a manager noticed suspicious activity at a Kuala Lumpur branch.

Sources say £20,000 held by the Malaysia Airlines passengers was moved into an account with the name Ali Faran on July 14 then withdrawn at a local branch.

The bank carried out an internal inquiry before going to police on August 2.

A source said: “Faran is believed to be a foreigner because a passport was used to open an account.

"More individuals are believed to be involved and we are trying to identify them.”

It is believed the bank worker approved the victim’s ATM card renewal application and gave Mr Faran a new card to make withdrawals.

The source added it was “possible” that other MH370 passengers had been affected.

HSBC is thought to have checked the accounts of all its customers on the flight which vanished on March 8.

City police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Tajuddin Md Isa said both the police and the bank involved were conducting investigations on the matter.

He said: “We have identified the suspects involved and are gathering more evidence before we take further action."

Airplane wreckage found off the coast of Africa could belong to missing Flight MH370, it has emerged.

Debris discovered on the coast of the island of Reunion could be that from the airframe of a Boeing 777, like the Malaysia Airlines jetliner which disappeared without trace last year.

The plane was flying from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Beijing, China, when it is thought to have come down in the Indian Ocean in March last year.

There were 239 passengers and crew - most of whom were from China - on board when it disappeared.
