NEW YORK) -- A man claiming to be the friend of two Iranians who used fake passports to board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight told ABC News that the men stayed at his home the night before the flight vanished ....
......Mallaeibeasir identified the men as Pouria Nour Mohammadi and Reza Devalar, both around age 18 or 19 and both from Iran
.......... Mallaeibeasir said that when Pouria and Reza were staying at his house, he heard them briefly talking to an "Ali" on the phone.
"The last night when they were in my home they were talking on the phone for a long time. They were talking in Persian, in their room, and I heard them say 'OK Ali' like that in Persian. I didn't understand because it was like, five seconds. I went into the room to take water from my fridge and I came out and they said, 'Be quiet, we're talking,'" Mallaeibeasir said.
The two men traveled lightly, Mallaebeasier said. Pouria had a mountain climbing-type backpack and a laptop, while Reza carried a suitcase and a laptop, he said. After he dropped them at the airport, Mallaebeasier called the men on their cellphones. Pouria answered but hung up quickly, and Mallaebeasier ended up talking to Reza for about three minutes, he said.
My one issue with the hijacking theory is this - when 911 happened, there were numerous instances where passengers used their own phones to call emergency services, family members, etc. I'd expect the same thing to happen in this case, but we have no reports of any passengers making calls. Unless, of course, the plane was completely out of range the entire time, but I find this doubtful.
I suppose it would depend on the range of the wireless coverage over the sea. But if the plane flew over land, wouldn't the passengers get at least one bar at some point?
For all we know at this point, the plane could have been drifting in and then out and back into a dimensional warp. It is said happened before.
Like a Bermuda Triangle theory?
Highly doubt it...
Why not? It's a possibility, so it should be addressed.
LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado company says about 600,000 people have scanned its satellite images for clues to the fate of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner that disappeared Saturday. DigitalGlobe is calling it a crowdsourcing campaign to help search crews. The company said Tuesday it plans daily updates of the images on the search website, www.tomnod.com.... Users can tag images on the website if they see wreckage, life rafts, oil slicks or other evidence. Shay Har-Noy, DigitalGlobe's senior director for geospatial big data, says the photos had 10 million page views by Tuesday afternoon.
Something's not quite right...
Tomnod is experiencing technical difficulties. We apologize. We're poking our servers with pointy sticks to figure out what's wrong.
KUALA LUMPUR, March 12 — Tempers flared in Beijing today after Malaysia’s ambassador to China Datuk Iskandar Sarudin declined to share information given authorities concerning the lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 carrying 138 Chinese passengers.
After five days of silence, relatives of the passengers aboard the missing jumbo jet finally lost patience after Iskandar refused to disclose what additional details the military had given authorities.
