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

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?

Blackstone and the Company are parties to a shareholders' agreement under which Blackstone, among other things, has the right to designate two directors to our board of directors. Accordingly, Blackstone may be deemed an “affiliate” of the Company, as that term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 12b-2. We note that Blackstone's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K reproduced the following disclosure by Travelport Limited (“Travelport”), a Blackstone portfolio company, in connection with Travelport's activities during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014.
“As part of our global business in the travel industry, we provide certain passenger travel-related GDS and airline IT services to Iran Air. We also provide certain airline IT services to Iran Air Tours. All of these services are either exempt from applicable sanctions prohibitions pursuant to a statutory exemption permitting transactions ordinarily incident to travel or, to the extent not otherwise exempt, specifically licensed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control. Subject to any changes in the exempt/licensed status of such activities, we intend to continue these business activities, which are directly related to and promote the arrangement of travel for individuals.”
No information was provided with respect to the gross revenues and net profits attributable to Travelport or Blackstone regarding Travelport's activities described above. 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.
