I was highly skeptical when I heard the directed deployment of the Ocean Shield with the underwater search tech onboard, before they had found even a single piece of wreckage.
It will look very suspicious if the Ocean Shield just sails to it's first destination, drops the ping locator, and immediately finds the wreckage. If that happens I would have to, at the very least, start to entertain the idea that maybe Australia shot the plane down before it was able to enter their airspace.
It's going to be interesting to see what happens over the next day or two, especially with this so-called big upcoming announcement they are going to make Friday.
"Investigations may go on and on and on. We have to clear every little thing," Khalid said. "At the end of the investigations, we may not even know the real cause. We may not even know the reason for this incident."
What about these dozens of other planes that went missing? Do you think they made all these up?
I think it's possible that there is really no MH370 aircraft that's missing.
I read it, and I don't doubt for a second that many corporate executives would profit on any opportunity that presents itself if they can, such as a missing plane. However, they don't generally either kidnap or kill planeloads of passengers or try to fabricate a missing plane with over 200 people on board, because it would be far too easy to expose the hoax. The media has been interviewing family members of the missing passengers and crew for example, do you really think all that could be hoaxed?
This is a huge con job. Here is the article. I suggest people read about the International Air Transport Association and Tony Tyler and his connection with Montreal, Canada. Canada is where the FLYHT company is located which manufactures the new satellite data systems.
ALPA said if the goal is to better track airplanes, the answer is a beefed-up, satellite-based navigation system called NextGen. Read more here: www.adn.com.../99/171//#storylink=cpy
The Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is the name given to a new National Airspace System due for implementation across the United States in stages between 2012 and 2025. NextGen proposes to transform America’s air traffic control system from a ground-based system to a satellite-based system. GPS technology will be used to shorten routes, save time and fuel, reduce traffic delays, increase capacity, and permit controllers to monitor and manage aircraft with greater safety margins. Planes will be able to fly closer together, take more direct routes and avoid delays caused by airport “stacking” as planes wait for an open runway. To implement this the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will undertake a wide-ranging transformation of the entire United States air transportation system. This transformation has the aim of reducing gridlock, both in the sky and at the airports. In 2003, the U.S. Congress established the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) to plan and coordinate the development of the Next Generation Air Transportation System.
The FAA is pursuing a NextGen implementation plan and has established a NextGen Advisory Committee to aid in that implementation. In 2009, the advisory committee began a collaboration with the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) Task Force, a joint government and industry group, to participate in the effort. Besides the FAA, the RTCA Task Force membership includes the Air Line Pilots Association, Air Transport Association of America, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, The Boeing Company, Department of Defense, GARMIN International, Honeywell International, Rockwell Collins, Stanford University, Lockheed Martin, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Harris Corporation, NASA, National Business Aviation Association, and Raytheon.
What big announcement? I didn't hear about it!
What big announcement? I didn't hear about it!
I am not sure what it is. I have my assumptions considering the Malaysian PM was in Australia, but at this point all I can give you is a best guess.
CNN is reporting that another Australian ship, the Echo is going to be conducting what Aussie Officials stated as a "specific search". So maybe the announcement/press conference has something to do with that...
Are there any realy sensertive fault lines under the sea around that region?
What if we get a realy Poweful Earthquake or possibly Volcano kicked off by a nuke buried within the downed aircraft, not just the catastrophic event it could create but if it was blamed on someone...
Just a thought.
MH370 Malaysia Airlines: Anwar Ibrahim says government purposefully concealing information
Malaysia’s sophisticated radar system would have immediately detected Flight MH370 as it crossed the country’s mainland after changing course and should have alerted the air force, Anwar Ibrahim, the opposition leader, has claimed
In an interview with The Telegraph, he said that he had personally authorised the installation of “one of the most sophisticated radar” systems in the world, based near the South China Sea and covering Malaysia’s mainland and east and west coastlines, when he was the country’s finance minister in 1994.
It was “not only unacceptable but not possible, not feasible” that the plane had not been sighted by the Marconi radar system immediately after it changed course. The radar, he said, would have instantly detected the Boeing 777 as it travelled east to west across “at least four” Malaysian provinces.
Mr Anwar said it was “baffling” that the country’s air force had “remained silent”, and claimed that it “should take three minutes under SOP (standard operating procedure) for the air force planes to go. And there was no response.”
He added: “We don’t have the sophistication of the United States or Britain but still we have the capacity to protect our borders.”
It was “clearly baffling”, he said, to suggest that radar operators had been unable to observe the plane’s progress.
Never under estimate the extremes greedy people will go to in order to accomplish their goals. Connecting the dots from article to article...
" Planes will be able to fly closer together, take more direct routes and avoid delays caused by airport “stacking” as planes wait for an open runway."
One of the more bizarre coincidences in the mystery of missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 is the fact CNN airline and aviation correspondent Richard Quest met with the co-pilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid, weeks before the plane’s disappearance. It was part of a taping Quest was doing in February for CNN Business Traveler, and it hasn’t aired yet on CNN. Hamid, a 27-year-old first officer, was taking part in a training session, flying from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur.
As most of the passengers on the missing flight are Chinese nationals, Beijing has been anxious to locate MH370. In this light, Beijing sent a request to New Delhi to allow its four warships enter the Andaman Sea and conduct search operations there- which was declined. The Times of India quoted an unnamed official reflecting Indian concerns that “The A&N command is our military outpost in the region, which overlooks the Malacca Strait and dominates the Six-Degree Channel. We don’t want Chinese warships sniffing around in the area on the pretext of hunting for the missing jetliner or anti-piracy patrols”. Moreover, Indian forces have already deployed assets to locate the missing plane and are coordinating with the international group.
