Why because he attended an open court case?
They searched the pilots house today, it was all over the news.

Malaysia is now describing him as a political fanatic of sorts. MALAYSIA said that.

Here it is ... a week later ... and Malaysia is just now getting around to searching the homes of the pilot and co-pilot. And Malaysia still hasn't let Interpol in. Malaysia is dragging its feet. And I believe it's probably for $$$ and reputation reasons. They don't want the loss of business for their airlines.

They are dragging their feet over pride. The government owns almost half the airline and a plane disappearing is a huge embarassment.

EXACTLY. That's EXACTLY what I'm saying. It's a huge embarrassment for the gov't and it would be a huge hit financially if it gets out that Muslim fanatics hijacked a plane. People around the world would then decide not to fly the airlines because of fanatical Muslim pilots and because the Malaysian gov't can't keep the airlines safe.

Of course they're going to paint him in a bad light. Then they can say "It's not our fault!" Unless it can be proved that it was a mechanical failure then there is your scapegoat.

I do agree with with you on this, I was watching the news tonight and thought why the # are they only just getting around to searching the pilots home now.

If it was a mechanical problem it would hit harder. How do you think it would look if the governnment can't maintain the aircraft properly?

So of COURSE it was hijacked. That looks better for them in the long run.

Apparently they took the plane up to 45,000 feet, then went into a steep dive, that's what I read on a website so it seems they tracked it a bit further than what's being alluded to.

Ahhh .. okay .... you think they'd blame the pilot/co-pilot to hide mechanical problems?

See ... i'd think they'd go the other way. Mechanical problems can be fixed and they randomly happen. The airlines has a good mechanical/crash record. But radical Islam is everywhere. Not being able to trust pilots can't be fixed but a mechanical problem can be.

Either way ... I think the stalling by Malaysia is for financial and reputation reasons. They want to control the info coming out They are either trying to cover a mechanical problem like you said, or they are trying to cover a radical Islamic pilot problem. I'm going with the radical Islamic pilot/copilot problem (or other hijacker) because multiple sources outside Malaysia say the transponder was turned off.

Either way .... Pick one or the other ... but Malaysia is dragging it's feet. It took 'em a week to search the pilot and copilots houses? That should have been done the day after the plane went missing .. not a week later.

all i can think of is that movie where they have a device that can pull a plane into the future to unload the people before it crashes...

Another very real possibility along with it landing on an aircraft carrier

A hijacker would want to turn off the transponder straight away anyway, not just for tracking but because if you squawk certain frequencies it means you've been hijacked eg 7700.


The Times of India


Mike Glynn, a committee member of the Australian and International Pilots Association, said he considers pilot suicide to be the most likely explanation for the disappearance, as was suspected in a SilkAir crash during a flight from Singapore to Jakarta in 1997 and an EgyptAir flight from Los Angeles to Cairo in 1999.

"A pilot rather than a hijacker is more likely to be able to switch off the communications equipment,'' Glynn said. "The last thing that I, as a pilot, want is suspicion to fall on the crew, but it's happened twice before.''

Glynn said a pilot may have sought to fly the plane into the Indian Ocean to reduce the chances of recovering data recorders, and to conceal the cause of the disaster.

Experts said that if the plane crashed into the ocean, some debris should be floating even if most of the jet is submerged. Past experience shows that finding the wreckage can take weeks or even longer, especially if the location of the plane is in doubt.

The first thing the 9/11 hijackers did was turn off the planes transponders..

Who says the hijacker needs to be actually on board.
It's possible

Iridium Communication system.

fly by wire?

Fly-by-wire (FBW) is a system that replaces the conventional manual flight controls of an aircraft with an electronic interface. The movements of flight controls are converted to electronic signals transmitted by wires (hence the fly-by-wire term), and flight control computers determine how to move the actuators at each control surface to provide the ordered response. The fly-by-wire system also allows automatic signals sent by the aircraft's computers to perform functions without the pilot's input, as in systems that automatically help stabilize the aircraft.[1]

No the plane has been taken,

If it were Iran why not just buy one no need to hijack it.

If it is a terrorist group then they have it and why Malaysian air? Lax security and Muslim Pilots.

why with Chinese and not Americans? China is not afraid of them but if they can put enough fear in China then they could convert a lot of Chinese to Islam and make parters to the Islamic cause.

Attended target? either a Chinese target or a western EU target possibly the Vatican.

The Plane could have made it to Iran

The plan to monitor aircraft won't be implanted until next year, and it's not trillions they've spent on developing it's $200 million.

You do realise that there are some companies that not only transport money but also have contracts with security at airpirts dont you. Pmsl.
Talk about dangling the carrot.
There was also something I read about Ukraine sending its gold to the US for safe keeping......and an airliner does a disappearing act?

that you know about.
To think that any of us are privy to what is developed ?
We only know what they allow us to know.

The pilots would notice if the plane was going off course, so for them to have let that happen then they'd have to be in on it but that just makes flying it remotely (even though you can't) stupid because why not just get the pilots to fly it if they're in on it.

Well the main benefit of this tech is to help ATC know where aircraft are and track them better, it wouldn't make sense to develop the tech and not use it in the commercial sector.

And it's not the govt putting up the iridium satellites it's Motorola.

What was the point of including the part about fly by wire? Instead of having wires connecting to the control surfaces from the cockpit they send an electrical signal to make it easier on the pilot.
