why is it even possible to turn off the planes tracking device?

My question in all of this is why disappear a whole plane full of passengers instead of dealing with these few employees in a more discrete manner?
'


you're right...that why this is not true, and just somebody's imagination.

If a transponder malfunctions it can cause problems for ATC by sort of acting like a jammer and therefore would need to be turned off, and also planes turn off their transponders when they're on the ground as 100 planes on the ground all squawking would cause massive radio frequency noise.

Pretty much everything electrical on a plane has to have a circuit breaker or be able to be turned off, or you could sit there watching your transponder malfunctioning and sparking just waiting to catch fire but not being able to turn it off.

Basically pilots are trusted not to steal the plane. It's that simple, and the hundreds of thousands of passengers everyday must trust these pilots otherwise they wouldn't get on board.

Is it a simply switch to turn it off?
You think it would be a key code or a key lock switch or something...

It's as simple as turning a knob to standby mode, that'll make it stop transmitting it's flight ID and altitude.

This doesn't turn the plane into a stealth jet or anything radar can still track it assuming your in radar range.

something about this just does not jell....

they should have a secret back up one.. that is off unless someone turns it on.. you know like at a bank they have that secret button they push if its being robbed.. something like that.. hide the button to turn it on like somewhere in the back of the plane like in a place they keep papper cups or something...

They do have a backup one, so in case the first one catches of fire they can turn that off and the second one comes on automatically, but there's a knob in the cockpit of the 777 that will turn both of them off.

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.


I must have missed tge evidence where it can be undisputed that the pilots and passengers actually got on the aircraft.

Has someone seen any footage or visible evidence that shows any of them boarding.

Check my oyher thread.

Sure they could do your paper cup thing but then whose going to turn it on if the cockpits been compromised, they wouldn't exactly be able to go and leave to get a cup?

No thanks, i prefer to stay on the aviation board where things are (semi) sane.

And yes there is footage, but you also would need to let people know that your not flying with passengers as it effects the centre of gravity if they're expecting a fully loaded jet and then no ones on board.

It seems your jumping into these theories without actually knowing the logistics behind them.

Good luck solving the mysteries

Who said hijackers had to actually be on board?
possibility?

Seems to be, but you don't wNt a faulty transponder stuffing up the air traffic going into a major hub or something like that, IMO it's a lot riskier.

well what i was talking about was that the transmitter would be in the belly of the plane and the hidden button would be in the little food service part of the plane and the flight attendant could push it..
Or the button could be hidden in one of the bathrooms..
like a key pad hidden behind a mirror.

You asked a genuine question and the answer is No, planes can't get taken over by the iridium satellites.

You wouldn't need to do that and have it as a transponder but it would be a good idea to have a panic button, although the aviation industry is huge and you can install a secret button and tell every hostess about it in the world and not expect it to get out and once it's out there always going to be a way to disable it.

So the answer would be no.

Radio jamming is not the same as remote control and, in fact, one might tend to exclude the other.

the military undoubtedly possess tech that even you, Phage, are entirely unaware of.
