The mystery has deepened over the exact contents of the cargo on-board Flight MH370 when it disappeared eight weeks ago.

It has now emerged the Malaysia Airlines plane was loaded with items which have not been made clear on the publicly-released manifest.

It is known the aircraft was carrying 4.566 tonnes of mangosteens, an exotic fruit.

It also had a separate consignment which contained 200kg of lithium batteries. The company that manufactured the batteries has not even been named.

However, the separate consignment totalled 2.453 tonnes. And it has not been revealed what made up the rest of that weight.


Cargo Being Kept Secret On Missing Flight MH370

So it seems that missing flight MH370 had some secret cargo on board. The authorities are being very secretive about what the plane was carrying. Why would this be? I cannot think of anything the plane could be carrying that they would need to keep secret. But something of that kind of weight I am guessing gold?

239 suicases at an average of around 100kgs each ?

Don't see too much here yet but not over 2 tonnes of luggage.

Loads of good threads on this but I doubt we will ever know,But I believe a lot more is known than is revealed.

This isn't true. They detailed the cargo on NBC Nightly News last night.

Commercial flights routinely carry mail, and various cargo that needs to be moved from place to place. It's actually cheaper to send it commercial than it is to ship it other ways.

A US technology company which had 20 senior staff on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems in the days before the Boeing 777 went missing.


Some part of said "gadget" maybe?

The defense side of Freescale is in Austin Texas. The Asian division deals with cell phones, and mall kiosks. The employees on board were efficiency experts travelling to various plants to make them run smoother, and increase production at them.

I don't know, i would not write off anything at this point.



“Four days after the missing flight MH370 a patent is approved by the Patent Office, four of the five Patent holders are Chinese employees of Freescale Semiconductor of Austin TX.

“Patent is divided up on 20 per cent increments to five holders.

“Peidong Wang, Suzhou, China, (20 per cent); Zhijun Chen, Suzhou, China, (20 per cent); Zhihong Cheng, Suzhou, China, (20 per cent); Li Ying, Suzhou, China, (20 per cent); Freescale Semiconductor (20 per cent).

“If a patent holder dies, then the remaining holders equally share the dividends of the deceased if not disputed in a will.

“If four of the five dies, then the remaining one Patent holder gets 100 per cent of the wealth of the patent.

“That remaining live Patent holder is Freescale Semiconductor.”

It adds: “Here is your motive for the missing Beijing plane. As all four Chinese members of the Patent were passengers on the missing plane.

“Patent holders can alter the proceeds legally by passing wealth to their heirs. “However, they cannot do so until the Patent is approved. So when the plane went missing, the patent had not been approved.”

My apologies it's been a long day
Still I stick with what I said we will never find the whole truth but IMO planes don't disapear in the 21st century ,so something political is stopping the truth coming out ,I also bow to Zaps superior knowledge in this field,I have my own theories .

From what I have been told by people that hold patents, with a very few rare exceptions, if you file a patent while working for the company, the company takes charge of the patent, and they get the proceeds from it, because you developed the patent while working for them.

The balance of the cargo going to China was supposedly radio accessories and chargers - but I'm going with live flu samples including H7N9, H5N1 and assorted other nasty stuff. In my version of the story, the lithium batteries were compromised and burst into flames. The ensuing fire breached the container holding the flu samples; the viruses got into the passengers' air supply. The effects of high altitude caused the viruses to merge and recombine rapidly, creating a super-deadly strain, and the passengers quickly succumbed. I haven't determined if the pilots were infected and the plane crashed accidentally, or if it was destroyed purposefully from the ground to prevent the new strain from getting loose in the world.


"The balance three house AWB, amounting to 2,232kg, were declared as radio accessories and chargers.”




PS. My heart goes out to the surviving families. I don't mean to be disrespectful.

Oh dear..the pieces may be falling into place.

20 high level Freescale Semiconductor employees on board the flight.

Newly patented electronic warfare and military radar evasion technology.

A couple of tonnes of unlisted cargo.

It's possible this could have been a real world technology demonstration of this new technology for 'private' clients benefit.

What better 'sales pitch' for this device is there, than to show it only has to be loaded onto the aircraft, not hardwired even, to make a commercial jet, including every electronic device onboard, simply vanish from all radar - including military radar?

If so, it's not good news for the passengers...they'll most likely never been heard from again...if this is a demo, worth untold billions, i'd hazard a guess the 20 employees are probably busy working for one or more of the 'private buyers' right now.

I still think there is the possibility that one of the persons on the plane was not he or she claim to be.

Whatever became of the 2 people using stolen passports and the guy who paid for them with cash?

Secondly, why does it seem to be that only China is capable of "locating" the aircraft (twice now) when no other nation can? The first release by china was dismissed and US military made the comment the Chinese information was a red herring. No reason / info was given to make the claim and I have not heard anything else on that specific matter.

Then we have the Chinese vessel who first located the pings. Those pings were tracked yet when foreign vessels get close the signal is lost and nothing is located. How hard would it be to rig something to ping in the same manner as the jets black box? Surely the black boxes transmit on the same frequency, so why not remove one from a operational jet, drop it in the water, ping it to make it look legit only to puIl before an exact fix can be obtained by foreign nations? I found it interesting that the box operated longer than it normally would and only died off when vessels started coming into the area.

The scenario we have now are the nations who have the equipment / resources stating they are scaling back the operation and that the plane may never be located.

Add to that all of the other strange circumstances.....

This is also not the first time Malaysia Air has had incidents with illegal / undeclared cargo. The following occurred in 2011 and was brought about by a Chinese firm causing the damage, which Chinese courts ordered the company to pay 65m in compensation.

Apparently a highly corrosive cargo was on board and leaked, causing the jet to be written off.

The recorder pingers are not unique. There are several other things out there that ping on the same frequency.

Pursuant to Section 13(r) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, we are required to include certain disclosures in our periodic filings if we or any of our affiliates engaged in certain transactions with Iran or with persons or entities designated under certain executive orders during the period covered by the periodic filing.

Travelport is a portfolio company of Blackstone and may be deemed to be an affiliate of Blackstone. Because of the broad definition of “affiliate” in Exchange Act Rule 12b-2, Travelport, through Blackstone's ownership of Freescale GP and Freescale LP, could potentially be deemed to be an affiliate of ours. Other than as described above, we have no knowledge of the activities of Travelport with respect to the transactions with Iran, and we have not independently verified or participated in the preparation of the disclosure described above.

That's what I've intuitively felt since first reading a signal had been detected.
