Second path could be Cocos(Keeling) Islands...it was mentioned previously in thread...do we know if they checked that area?

Well that path would make sense why India saying they wouldve seen it..they just need to get military radar from those other countries to see if they have any record of unidentified aircraft flying..

Lets assume that the last signal detected by the satellite is in fact true and the plane did continue on in the air, it is far more likely that it ended up in the south, west of Australia than it is for the plane to have been in the north. I find it very difficult to stomach that the plane evade radar contact by India, China, Pakistan and/or Bangladesh for the duration. Its not as if any of these nations are on any special war footing and would be highly alert--- but these countries boast pretty decent air defense capabilities.

Simplest explanation now is that the plane is sitting deep in the Indian Ocean west of Australia. For what purpose it was diverted is up for speculation. Simplest explanation is that the air crew was complicit. If the plane is in the south, in the ocean, it does not fit the profile of a terrorist/hijacking scenario well due to the lack of an apparent end game.

That being said one possible scenario that would make sense is where the plane was hijacked, flown south and the hijackers planes fell apart due to an accident. Possible that the plane depressurized due to flying outside of its specs and it continued flying unabated south, until it ran out of fuel and crashed. Even this scenario has far less moving parts than any suggestion that it flew north evading radar of several civilian and military organizations.

It looks like Australia had plans to amp up their surveillance for the Cocos Islands and were buying better planes to do so...again, leading me to think something would show up on their radar...


I think the problem, and may be for a reason,is that were not being given definite locations...Is it really possible for the ping to show up in 2 diff locations?

CNN is reporting the ACARS system was turned off before the statement "All right, good night" was transmitted to the tower.

They are suggesting this points to the idea that the event began before the person was heard talking to air traffic controllers.

The only other island in the indian ocean that is the next closest is French Southern Antartic Islands...which seems unlikely...

Whoever was flying / controlling it took known flight paths and looks to all intents like it was attempting evasion of sat recognition, perhaps they considered if they flew certain paths and in certain zones it would be less likely to patch the data together for a cohesive picture until after they landed.

Indeed it has taken a week so far for VERIFICATION of the sat pings and possibly more information is known though as yet unreleased.

If it was sabotaged / hijacked chances are it was pre planned and was going SOMEWHERE, somewhere pre planned, rather than flying aimlessly around oceans.

It had around 8 hours fuel so at the last known ping, unless it had refueled it would have been running on low and whoever was flying it must have known it's fuel capacity and the corresponding flying range and would have accounted for this.

It sounds very much like it wasn't a random /suicide thing therefore flying over oceans low on fuel seems unlikely, otherwise it would just as well have been flown into the sea within the first hour of flying when it was on radar.

It sounds like purposeful hijacking with a destination, that the plane perhaps reached, safely.

At this point I am calling BS on all the constant changing of info. Misdirection to the extreme imho. Go back to the beginning…. tweets of an emergency landing in China…. It started there…. Think that's what we should be looking at…

All the rest is just cover for whatever sick, twisted, machiavellian machinations the current govts. of this planet subscribe to in the name of world security. There are negotiations going on right now and we are not privy to them. Just my two cents….

They said this morning they were scheduled to do another at 530 pm but don't know who or which time zone that was supposed to be and doesn't look like one happened :-(

Other than the various 'pings' detected emanating from various equipment on board the plane, is there any possible contact by radar after around 1:30? I'm seriously asking this as there has been so much information out there, I've lost track of that part of the narrative.

Can't find the paper they are referring to the Beijing times but have just seen this?..




With conspiracy theories abounding -- and with family members desperately clinging on to hope of their loved ones' existence -- many users of China's online social networks shared a news report of a woman who said she had received a missed call from her father, who was on board the plane. The unnamed woman "said she had gotten a missed call from her father onboard, and the number said 'powered off' later when she called back," the Beijing Times reported.
Missed call from her father

Maybe I'm tired but a search for the article and I couldn't find it.

The flight commenced at 00:40 and the last known sat ping was 08:11, all local time Malaysia.

I just wanted to add that a panel of pilots said they would not have know how to turn that off, which makes me wonder.

From the mouth of the Chinese government, via a commentary, 3 unidentified sources reported that the craft headed westbound. They base this on military satellite data which indicates the plane was flying the normal corridors to the Middle East/Europe.

The commentary also mentions how "silent" the West is on the whole issue compared to their normal reactions, i.e., Lockerbie.

Actually, quite an interesting read, especially with their references to "deep throat", but consider the source:

news.xinhuanet.com...

So, does China really care or are they trying to deflect?

Yes, I have that part of it down pat. I was asking if there was any confirmed radar contact with the plane outside of the ~01:30 between Malaysia and Vietnam? I'm willing to accept the ~02:40 contact around the Strait of Malacca as being the plane- though I have not seen this confirmed with certainty.

Outside of these two events, was there radar contact between 02:40 and 08:11? Even speculated radar contacts?

If I read this correctly, the aircraft sends out a periodic signal without interrogation from the satellite. It is a one way communication if I read correctly.

That was my impression too.

Same here. There has been no real new news on this. Ever.

USS Ponce
www.ponce.navy.mil...




The Navy is about to take a big step for military-kind; this summer they will add the first ship-mounted laser to their fleet. The USS Ponce will be equipped with the phaser-like laser weapon, and yes, it’s exactly as cool – and as deadly – as it sounds. So how much of this new device reflects the fictional laser weapons of science fiction lore?

I wonder if there were any similar U.S. Navy ships in the area where MH370 disappeared on March 08, 2014. There has to be a prototype.

Think my pervious post was red herring, unknowingly, apologies.

I did a search , here is a screen shot, and it only brings up a page called godlike productions?.

But if you click on that the post is no longer available.
