Interesting...if something had? hit it? hard enough to knock it off course and knock out all power, and it had fell out the sky like an intact but powerless stone, could it have lost its transponder signal and in effect shown the result on radar we all understand.

Its interesting how far west in the Malacca Straight they are looking..

What do they suspect


The fact that they are looking in the Andaman Sea means they have information they aren't telling us.

www.hindustantimes.com...#
Azharuddin said the search includes northern parts of the Malacca Strait, on the opposite side of the Malay Peninsula and far west of the plane's last known location. Azharuddin would not explain why crews were searching there, saying, "There are some things that I can tell you and some things that I can't."

You can turn the transponder off from the cockpit I was told. Just flip one of the switches.

Sounds like a lot of information being kept from the public. Chances are some people, governments, airlines, agencies know more than they are saying.

There are a few things that don't add up about that flight.

www.ibtimes.co.uk...


According to China.org.cn, 19 families have signed a joint statement saying that their family members' cell phones connected, but the calls hung up. The relatives have asked Malaysia Airlines to reveal any information they might be hiding, seeking an explanation for the eerie phone connections. The relatives have complained that the Malaysina Airlines is not responding as actively as it should.

Angry family members also threw water bottles at an MAS spokesman and threatened to protest in front of the Malaysian embassy in China if the airlines did not "disclose" the "truth".

BEIJING (AP) — China's state media says Vietnamese authorities have detected signals from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.
The Xinhua News Agency, citing a local Vietnamese media report, says a Vietnamese search and rescue official reported that the signals have been detected from the plane from about 220 kilometers (120 miles) southwest of Vietnam's southernmost coastal province of Ca Mau.
Malaysia Airlines says its Boeing 777-200 carrying 239 people lost contact over the South China Sea early Saturday morning on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Is there any known device that can block radar?
How often does radar measure the altitude of an airplane, every 5 seconds? minute?

yes they were flying in the direction of Iran. Maybe they suspect they are not professional pilots and crashed there anyways.

the further away the radar, 2000 feet is low enough.

I hate to say, but I believe there is foul play involved.

There are far too many oddities here.

I would say until tpb reveal the evidance? that the plane crashed, then in my oppinion it falls into yet again another 911 mystery of an event/un-event etc iff one can allow themselves to explore a little - if 911 can be so cleverly created and again the mainstream falling for the whats infront of our eyes must be true?.
Techno is becoming more and more advanced that somethings are becoming more and more un-believable and reality slipping into fantasy.

So they had enough fuel to fly around Vietnam, dodging the Philippines, the ships that are patrolling the Spratly Islands, and up into China, with no one noticing them, even though they had planned to fly directly over Vietnam. It's not exactly like that added an extra hundred miles to the route. Fuel would have been a concern.
I guess I'll have to do the work of obtaining the distances. However it's clear you have not looked at a map as to where Beijing is in relation to the reported landing site. I'll see what I come up with


I'll also add, there's no reason to believe that if the scenario is as I suggested, they still could have taken the route over Vietnam escorted by Chinese military if the Vietnamese allowed that to happen. Just saying.


In order to do that you will need to know exactly where all radar sources were at the time the plane disappeared. That would include any military planes and ships that could have possibly detected the plane. This information would have been needed in order for anyone on board the plane to formulate a flight plan that would be undetected. You can not just subtract the distance of the supposed landing site (according to you) from the distance to Beijing. You will have to find a route that is undetected by radar, not necessarily a straight line route. I suspect this is what Zaphod has been trying to tell you.
You have to realize, no one was looking for the flight at the time so why would they have to circumvent any radar in international airspace? I drew a path that is clearly in international waters. The distance to the landing site is shorter than the trip to Beijing. Fuel wouldn't be an issue.

A fisherman did report a low flying jet ? Not sure how credible or if it was dismissed .



The authorities in Kelantan, north peninsula Malaysia, have their hands full after receiving at least two reports from the public that they saw an aircraft flying low on the same day Malaysian Airlines MH370 vanished. In his report, the owner of a fishing boat claimed that he saw an airplane flying low while he was at sea with a friend about 14.4km from Kuala Besar in Pantai Cahaya Bulan here at 1:30am on Saturday. Azid Ibrahim, 66, said the aircraft was heading towards international waters. According to him, the plane was flying so low that he could see the lights “as big as coconuts”. He said he saw the aircraft with his friend Pak De while five other anglers were asleep in the boat. In a report which appeared on a local English news portal, a man in Ketereh, 30km south of Kota Baru, claimed that he saw “bright white lights” which he believed to be that of an aircraft descending at high speed at 1:45am the same day the jetliner went missing. Businessman Alif Fathi Abdul Hadi, 29, said he was in the compound of his home when he saw the aircraft flying low, heading for Bachok and descending fast. He said he only found out about the missing jetplane the next day and decided to lodge a report at the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency office in Tok Bali late Sunday evening.

Here is a video on live tv of one of the phones ringing.



Chinese media reports that a number of families have been able to ring mobile phones of their missing loved ones but no one answers.

Are they searching land too? Could this plane have crashed clise enough to shore to have it wash ashore quickly, localizing a debris field? Could the crash site, if there is indeed one, be entirely on land? Or a inland body of water?

Would it give credence to wreckage not being underwater?

Confused about this ACARS thing...

"There were no signals from ACARS from the time the aircraft disappeared," a source involved in the investigations said.

source: my.news.yahoo.com...

The only way there wouldn't be automated messages was if the plane broke apart severing it's transmitting capabilities?
