The point is, if you don't agree to the article tell them instead of accusing me.

Ok, reading through the thread I get the general consensus that this is COUbull#GH. BUT....big but, what if they're right?
You all do realize that coming forth with this information shows that all of our original speculations about a 'stolen' plane is possible. Then it opens a BIG can of worms. Huge. Back to the families...plane lands and passengers are/were safe. There's that plus, "what's in store for the stolen plane?" We've come full circle.

So what is the general consensus re: the real truth? Plane shot down and the Malaysian Gov is resorting to ATS conspiracy threads as a stall tactic?

Or...

The pilot stole the plane to be used for nefarious attacks when the fruit is ripe?

If the pilot did indeed have a deleted flight path to Gilligan's island somewhere in the Indian ocean, then there should be proof of this, yes? So the Malaysian gov can't just shoot from the hip and spout things that can't be backed up.

What say you?

This is the aeronautical version of suspecting the husband when a woman is murdered. Any more evidence other than this theory??

Wow, without even looking at an atlas eh?

So tell us, after landing on say, the Seychelles what would the hijackers do?

Get into a waiting submarine?

The islands you list are a 'dead end'. That's why we "ignore" them.

The reason the only island mentioned is Diego Garcia is because the entire island of Diego Garcia is a naval base.

Those people who continue to de-rail these threads by bringing up Diego Garcia would have you believe that the United States is responsible for murdering the passengers in a plot to capture an aircraft for the electronic components on board.

Cold blooded, pre-meditated murder of babies and grandmothers is not something a sane person would accuse Obama of doing.

In the 14 minutes between the two transponders 'ceasing to operate' there would have been plenty of opportunity for the pilots to hit the MAYDAY button or contact ATC by radio.


There is no such thing as a "Mayday button." To declare a May1day requires tuning a radio to 121.5 (VHF) or 243 (UHF) and transmitting a call. There are certain discrete transponder codes that can be dialed in using 4 different knobs on the transponder. But there is not a button to push to declare an emergency.

You fly 777s do you?

No, I didn't think so.

There is a MAYDAY control knob/button built into the radio.

A voice message can then be transmitted.

Actually, I have flown the trip 7, along with every other Boeing Part 25 aircraft (except the 720) and am familiar with the avionics suites, including the new Rockwell Collins systems on the 777 and just certified on the 787. As the Forensics Director of an accident investigation firm, I have to be familiar with the aircraft types that might be involved in accidents we get called on to investigate by ALPA or IATA, etc. Having such a button would make no sense. The purpose of an emergency call, whether Mayday or PAN, is to get help. In fact, MAYDAY is a corruption of the French, "m'aidez" which means "help me." A button initiated notification would carry no information about the nature of the emergency. It could mean, "I'm about to run out of fuel and I need a vector to the nearest airport," or, "I have a pax with a heart attack. I need an ambulance when I land.", or, "I just had an uncontained failure on number 3 and have no hydraulics so I'm diverting to __________________." Of course, just pushing a button conveys none of that info, and you don't get the vector, or the ambulance, or the foamed runway you need. Buttons get pushed but people die anyway. And this points out what I consider to be one of the greatest hazards to safety today. Reliance on technology has caused a relaxation in the stressed need for basic airmanship.

I've been searching unsuccessfully for the radio control panel illustration which someone posted a couple weeks ago with a control marked 'MAYDAY'.

Since I am unable to prove my point at this time I concede and apologize if I am mistaken.

That plane has 2 jump seats in the cockpit for deadhead pilots & they may not show up on the plane manifest.

Have never heard that discussed at all.

On international flights, everyone must be listed. Malaysia Airlines is an ICAO council member so they are bound by this rule.

Today's news of a an Al Qaeda threat in Uganda and England based on a new concealable bomb design lends support to the theory hijackers used explosives to gain entry to the cockpit.

The shoebomber had previously testified that he provided a Malaysian Al Qaeda cell with an example of his device for the express purpose of blowing the cockpit door.

Could such an explosion have brought about the cascade of events leading to the loss of MH370?

Is this new onboard explosive device we are being warned about a development of the MH370 investigation?
