There is talk of Hijacking and Foul play. If such a thing did occur and lets keep this on the human level, then searchers should be drawing radial circle from where plane was last radar plotted by Malaysia and looking at all known and potential places it could land based on its fuel capacity.


It is my understanding we DON'T have any such data where it was last plotted, otherwise we would already look at that location.

What happened is that the transponder was turned off and that NO RADAR tracked the plane but that the engine data transmitter sent information to a satellite afterwards....and then (going from that) they concluded the plane flew another three or four hours, based on the last known direction when they still tracked it (where they saw it made a turn). But I don't think we have a definite point of where the plane disappeared from radar.

That's still unofficial hearsay.

Yep i kno, the trick is to find an area of choice and zoom in till you find the correct amount of area required then just click on a plane to show its details, and like i said earlier, click the "view from cockpit live video" that would be so revealing from the flight if it worked...

Is it common for pilots to have a flight simulator in their house? How much do they cost? Could a pilot for Malaysia Airlines typically afford one? Have they checked the one found in his home for which programs he ran?

I went to Flightradar, my god, look at all those planes in the US alone. Makes me queasy

I found this video earlier tonight, posted it elsewhere... its interesting

This is what the flight radar currently looks like in that area (open in new tab to view the full size). Really shows the scope of how many planes there are to track and how MH370 could try and hide in the traffic.



As for whether flight simulators are common for pilots, they are common for anyone who enjoys flying. Even users on this site have flight simulators at home.

I don't know whether its been authenticated that twenty of people on flight were involved in cloaking research. So if it was a Hijacking to get hold of these people then what would the be worth be in $$$ of these people to rogue governments who seek to buy one or more on the black market?


Mabey Spectre or Chaos are behind this

And embarrassing at times. Some of the things one hears on the frequency are amusing.


That actually reminds me of that cop we heard on the police scanner (during the manhunt for boston bombing suspects after MIT shooting) saying something amusing during a sweep. I forget the dude's name or what he said exactly but it was pretty funny. Ill-timed though lol.

EDIT: Dude's name was Kevin Brennan, he said "They call me Kevin In-and-out-real-quick Brennan"

Doesn't work, went to Flights History, found MH307, says that flight was cancelled. Clicked on it and of course nothing happened.

Well a semi-basic computer could run a basic version of MS flight simulator.

Sometimes humor is a great stress reliever. Especially when ish hits the fan

What if this was always a suicide mission? A test run on a lower tier airline to test the skill (learned by simulator) of either hacking the airplane or hijacking the airplane? And practicing dodging radar or other means of detection.

Just to see if it could be done and to perfect the plan for a bigger next time.

It would go toward explaining the waypoints and the altitude fluctuations ..just practicing to test the learning prep..for next time

Pretty sure you mean this:

boaby_phet's post on the story about the Chinese University detecting the small seizmic event around the time and place of the disappearance is interesting although it looks as if the plane flew on after the loss of contact.

If it didn't fly on however, then the small seizmic event detected could be a laser pulse from space designed to knock out an aircraft or something similiar. Maybe it was a 'miss' or a target practice?

This area is not known for having seizmic events and so it is extremely unusual - which is why they mentioned it.

It could be part of the jigsaw puzzle.

Entirely possible.

Does anyone think that there is a reasonable possibility that this jet will never be found?

Or only found by chance in the distant future, in the vein of the StarDust/Stendec Lancastrian that crashed after the war but was only found in 2000 in the Andes?

Long time lurker… this event has motivated me to jump into the conversation and share an odd thing that happened this past Saturday. I fly over 100,000 miles a year have done so for the past three, I've seen standby upgrade lists change order but nothing like this past Saturday. I was flying out of San Diego for Atlanta, the first class upgrade list was long as usual maybe 40+. I was hovering anywhere from 4-6 with 3 seats unclaimed.

As the gate agent called for first class boarding… she started calling out names including mine to come to the gate desk. The agent proceed to tell us a large group over 10 people. That a group of 8 already upgraded to first class, hasn't checked in, so if we would wait till 30 minutes prior to boarding we would get their seats. The agent had a perplexed look as if I have no idea where they are. Well no one showed up and we got our upgrades.

I thought nothing about this other than it was really odd, and the others that were upgraded with me thought the same. If I knew then what I know now about the mystery of flight Flight 370, and the large group of employees from Freescale Semiconductor, I would have freaked out.

I'm sure it was a coincidence, but I thought it was worth sharing. I've seen maybe two to four seats become available due to a late arriving flight but this was an early flight and eight first class seats??? odd.

Thank you for trying i wonder if it has been pulled or just usual behavior for this senario

Yep, I remembered just before and edited lol I had an image for burgers and remembered In-and-Out (yay schematic memory skillz!) and then it came back, added and edit. Cheers for that.

I wonder actually, bringing this back on topic, are there any feeds that we can connect to from civilian/non-military sources involved in the search? That would be interesting.
