What I love about this is that not 1 but 2 pilots have now thrown their tuppence worth in the ring about how they find this all to be suspect yet so many people are banging on about how the OS makes sense...
Sounds like a desperation story...
I don't buy it
I don't think so, sometimes an accident is just an accident, and that's very well what this may be, we just don't know the Why's yet...

I have to agree with you on this one. MAYBE the whole thing is just one big accident and chain of unfortunate circumstances but I've never bought into that many coincidences happening. As far as I'm concerned, there's just far too many unanswered questions for this to resolved by an 'official news release' stating that the plane has crashed into the ocean and NO ONE survived either. No distress calls and a few pieces of wreckage that may or may not be the actual plane. I suspect that this enigma may never be completely answered if everyone accepts the official story as 'the whole truth'. We've just got to keep on asking questions and doing some digging. My final thoughts are a true prayer for all of the people who were aboard this flight. I'm truly sorry that the family, friends and acquaintances of those on this flight have had to deal with so many unanswered questions for far too long!

Basically though, who knows? That is what the black box is for. I only hope they can locate it - does anyone know the depth pressures they can withstand?
They can transmit up to a depth of 14,000-20,,000 feet, depending on the model.
So what is the official explanation of why they haven't received a signal from the black box? There is supposed to be at least a few on the airplane and also tracking devices that give off signals on every life boat on the plane.

The Freescale connection wasn't mentioned on any mainstream news here in North America either. CNN has had 24/7 coverage of the missing plane and interviewed about a zillion experts over the last two+ weeks. Not one person mentioned a possible motive for the hijack theory or that US base Diego Garcia is right there yet have not been forthcoming with any satellite info that might shed some light. This entire event stinks and I'm glad the families are not taking it sitting down.
This is it! Oh, wait, not really - a history of Flight 370 object spotting
For instance, images taken by a Thai satellite and released Thursday showed about 300 objects ranging in size from 6 feet (2 meters) to 50 feet (15 meters).
One object was "a gray or green circular object," and the other was "an orange rectangular object,"according to AMSA.
"The gray/green is the color of the inside of the aircraft," she said. "A great number of pieces of metal and other things in the aircraft are of gray/green color, everything from the metal in the fuselage and pieces of the mechanical parts..."
Orange and bright yellow "are the color of the emergency escape slides, the life rafts inside the plane,"
Malaysia Airlines has one of the most safest airports in the world and have a good safety record for 20 years or so
I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack....

It's not different. When they published it they left of the flight number. The only difference is they identified the flight by flight number.
