If it ran out of fuel then it would eventually stall. With no one to try to recover it would be easy for it to go into a dive.

What do you mean with no one to try to recover?

If the aircraft suffered a cockpit fire, which has happened before on aircraft built around the same time, it almost certainly would have incapacitated the crew and they wouldn't have been able to do anything.

Ok, but would it keep on flying until fuel ran out in such a scenario?

It was alluding to that once the fuel was gone, it stalled and fell versus a glide down. Basically what Zaph indicated.

The talk on the news is back to someone flying or setting a course for the plane's path. The turn, crossing Malaysia, turn up the straights and then southern turn.

edit:

This is said to be US intelligence. So now they come out with this? I figure the intelligence agency knew where it basically went. Now that debris has surfaced, we get this. Odd.

Autopilot. If they set a heading while trying to deal with the fire, which was in the cockpit oxygen system in the one that was destroyed, it would keep going on that heading until it lost power and crashed. It's the same thing that happened with Payne Stewarts Lear, and the one that crashed off the Bahamas recently. The pilots were incapacitated and autopilot kept it going until they ran out of fuel.

What about the turns? Do you think those were set?

WIRED had an article that theorized the plane was headed back to an field with a 13k runway and flat ground. But the planed passed quite a bit east before going up the straight.

With one part and that piece of a suitcase already having washed up, I'd say it's quite likely there will be other items...


What are the chances that after 18 months, a part of the plane and a suitcase from that plane both wash up on the same remote island?

While one hand distracts you over here, over there the other hand....


very likely...THINK about it, how many pieces of luggage were on that plane, about 200 (I don't remember the exact count) passengars so 400 if each had two bags checked in.....and they are in the tide stream......rub two brain cells together and think...and no, it is not a remote island

If it's not from a 777, it's from a 777 class aircraft. A component that size came from a big aircraft. By process of elimination it has to be from a Triple.


What is a Triple? and if it has been addressed I apologize now for what I will find in the next few pages.

Seems only one single 6 ft. piece of wing flap was found. I don't know if it was moved to that grassy part it is lying on in the pics, but it sure doesn't look like it washed up there.


Of course it was moved. The beach cleaner that found it Johnny Begue was out searching the beach for a stone to use as a cooking mortar. He discovered the flaperon in the surf (half in the sand - half in the water). He got his colleagues to help him carry the flaperon to the place where it was photographed.

YESSS, i've got it. Someone blew the plane to bits and kept it in storage. Waited 12/18 months. Then put it all on a big boat and sailed to the Islands. Then chucked it all overboard whilst super gluing barnacles and shells on , yes thats it.

wrong, a suitcase was also found on the same island

It would have taken a little bit for the crew to be overcome. They could have had enough time to set up for that field first and then it kept going.

777, three sevens, Triple Seven or just Triple for short.

Autopilot.


I understand that, my point was wouldn't a cabin fire spread and/or destroy vital systems?

But I see it is obviously possible for a plane to keep flying in such a scenario.




Payne Stewarts Lear


Off topic but that's the one fighter jets did scramble for and were escorting it in 20 mins, right?

Yes. It was escorted most of its flight, up until impact. They handed off to different F-16 flights as it went across country.

I was not aware of that. Doesn't change my point though.

Thank You Zaph. I was thinking that it meant a triple carb set up:-) I am stuck to the ground with rubber between me and earth at all times. Very interesting thread to read through and a S&F to the op is in order.

Knowing full well I really shouldn't ask. . . oh please do enlighten us as to all of the facts which "do not add up." I'll be right back, clearly gonna need some popcorn. And PLEASE REMEMBER that "not having all of the facts" IS NOT the same thing as "facts not adding up." Similarly, "not believing certain facts" IS NOT the same thing as "certain facts not adding up."



The hundreds of facts why the entire MH370 issue clearly doesn't add up are in the hundreds of posts on ATS that already cover them, so when you get your popcorn, re-read them. And no, we obviously do not have all of the facts, or it certainly would have been solved long ago.

On top of this list would be the technology that the U.S. and Russia have in orbit around this planet, many of which are so secret, they do not show up in any discussion. There is just no way an aircraft that large can get away from such devices, so it holds that there are some people, other than those present on that aircraft, that know exactly where that plane went down, and perhaps a lot more on the story of why and how it got there. Why that was not revealed is the supreme crux of the entire issue, and is in definition, a conspiracy.
