Witnesses saw the plane in the Maldives.
The fact is, that a large amount of Lipos carried in the cargo hold could have literally cut this plane in half in the air, not to mention that is was nearly full of fuel at the time.
Asked whether Australia had picked up any signals consistent with the aircraft on its Jindalee Operational Radar Network, which covers large swathes of the southern Indian Ocean, Leonie Kolmar, a spokeswoman for the Australian Defence Department, said the department “won’t be providing comment” on the military surveillance system.
Even if the aircraft flew within the range of Australia’s JORN radar system, it’s possible that it wouldn’t have been picked up, according to Andrew Davies, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, a government-funded think tank.
The range the radar reaches “depends on the state of the ionosphere,” the atmospheric layer that long-range radar systems use to help detect objects beyond the horizon, he said. The early morning hours when the aircraft may have passed within range “is a difficult time” for such systems, he said. “The atmosphere is starting to warm up and the ionosphere is a bit turbulent.”
In addition, the technology is designed to detect objects moving towards Australia. “Things that are moving towards or away from the radar are much easier to detect than things that are moving sideways” as the Malaysian Air plane appears to have traveled, he said.

So, don't listen to the MSM, because tgey are lying, but they are right that the aircraft performed an impossible climb to an altitude it couldn't reach. Because apparently flying 10,000 feet lower wouldn't kill them.

Lies lies lies lies lies. If you are gonna trust what comes out of mainstream media then straight away your information is wrong. Its even funnier that since this plane has been missing there has pretty much been a media black out of whats been happening in Ukraine.
