Did the U.S. take over the Malysian Boeing 777?

You can't just take over a plane and fly it, you could possible jam the transponder frequencies, but without installing additional equipment on the plane you won't be able to fly it remotely.

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.


maybe its time to make all planes be flown remotely so they can't be hijacked by being on the plane...
Like drones but people ride in them.

That would actually mAke it easier to hijack the planes. Just look at what happened in Iran and just recently in Crimea, granted they didn't actually hijack per se they spoofed the GPS so the drone thought it was somewhere else.

After 9/11 there were a lot of measures put in place, I'm not so sure how much other countries changed after it.

Sadly with the amount of planes flying it's bound to happen again.

ANY airline can have a pilot snap. There is no way to see it coming. But a problem because someone didn't double check something, or something got pencil whipped is a differeng story.

Because if there is a short you can cut power before a fire starts.

Yeah you just have to look at what happened with that fedex pilot that snapped after his divorce and tried flying the plane into the fedex hub.

That one, EgyptAir, Silk Air, or there was an older one in the US (70-80s), where a guy was fired, used his badge to get past security with a gun, and executed the pilots of the flight the guy that fired him was on.

Yep. For sure. But people around the world will say 'radical Muslim takes out an airplane again'. And they'll say Malaysia didn't screen it's pilots to weed out the radicals. (that may or may not be true). I can see the coming headlines .... and I bet so can the gov't of Malaysia. That's why they are dragging their feet with the investigation - because it's leading to the pilot/copilot and it'll hurt their $$$$ and reputation.

IMHO

I know how the many people talk about Hollywood dropping hints before the 9/11 attack. Well the other week on Person of Interest one of the main characters remotely controlled a trans Atlantic commercial airliner from his NY apartment after the crew had been incapacitated.

not to mention remember back in the 50s the CIA was busted at McGill university in Canada for doing work on replacing peoples personalities with a triggered manufactured personality?

what about just hijacking using the gps system?
trick the plane knowing its on auto at the time in the routine of the flight using inaccurate data

ABC News - Jet made TACTICAL Aviation Maneuvers


U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials are focusing on the possibility that at least one of the Malaysia Airlines pilots is responsible for the disappearance of flight MH 370 after new information revealed the plane performed "tactical evasion maneuvers" after it disappeared from radar, two senior law enforcement officials told ABC News today.

U.S. authorities believe only a person with extensive flight or engineering experience could have executed the maneuvers. They also are suspicious of what appeared to be attempts to evade radar.


They knew to turn off the transponders at just the right moment .. between airspaces.
Tactical maneuvers to avoid radar.
Not just an every day hijacker ... but an experienced pilot.

THE SMOKING GUN - It was the pilot

NY Times - Transponder turned off BEFORE Pilot last spoke to Flight Control

The transponders were turned off. The pilot calmly spoke with flight control afterwards.
Then the plane went into maneuvers that only a trained pilot could make.
The pilot was still in the cabin and at the controls of the plane after the transponders were turned off.
The pilot was calm and behaving normally with the flight control personnel.

It also fits a lot better with a hypoxia event than a hijacking.

Screw explaining the remote controlled part...

I'm still waiting to hear how reliable information, the likes of complicated mathematics and schematics, can somehow be revealed through water-boarding.




What makes you think its that kind of information they are after?

I don't, but apparently you did. That is to say, unless you don't understand the generalized meaning & job duties of the term used in the theory you see as "plausible".

From your original post-
"...water boarding the FreeScale engineers and getting Chinese military secrets."

"...US wants to get the Chinese secrets from the Chinese FreeScale engineers before TSHTF over Ukraine..."

Here's the most important factor in why the pilot did it (according to the Malaysian government).

Right now they have paid $5,000 a pasenger to the families. And they will get that and more back in insurance.

If it turned out to be maintenance related, they could spend millions in settlements, and get a reduced insurance settlement.

Since the pilot has already been convicted in the media they have a fallback in case the ultimate report says something else.

Stop and think for a second. Where has ALL the information come from?

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.

exactly my point.
If the flight was hijacked I'm saying who says the hijacker was actually on board.
read my previous replies.

And by the way...YES IT IS POSSIBLE.
