Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Recommended Posts

Here is a timeline of events in the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner which vanished from radar screens on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early on Saturday:

SATURDAY, MARCH 8

- Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 Flight departs at 12:21 a.m. (7.21 p.m. ET Friday), and is due to land in Beijing at 6:30 a.m. (2230 GMT) the same day. On board the Boeing 777-200ER are 227 passengers and 12 crew.

- Airline loses contact with plane between 1-2 hours after takeoff. No distress signal and weather is clear at the time.

- Missing plane last has contact with air traffic controllers 120 nautical miles off the east coast of the Malaysian town of Kota Bharu.

- Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam says plane failed to check in as scheduled at 1721 GMT while flying over sea between Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh City.

- Flight tracking website flightaware.com shows plane flew northeast over Malaysia after takeoff and climbed to altitude of 35,000 feet. The flight vanished from website's tracking records a minute later while still climbing.

- Malaysia search ships see no sign of wreckage in area where flights last made contact. Vietnam says giant oil slick and column of smoke seen in its waters.

- Two men from Austria and Italy, listed among the passengers on a missing Malaysia Airlines flight, are not in fact on board. They say their passports were stolen.

SUNDAY, MARCH 9

- Malaysia Airlines says fears worst and is working with U.S. company that specializes in disaster recovery.

- Radar indicates flight may have turned back from its scheduled route to Beijing before disappearing.

- Malaysian rescue teams expand their search to the country's western coast.

- Interpol says at least two passports recorded as lost or stolen in its database were used by passengers, and it is "examining additional suspect passports".

- Malaysia's state news agency quotes Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as saying the passengers using the stolen European passports were of Asian appearance.

- Investigators narrow focus of inquiries on possibility plane disintegrated in mid-flight, a source who is involved in the investigations in Malaysia tells Reuters.

MONDAY, MARCH 10

- The United States review of American spy satellite imagery shows no signs of mid-air explosion.

- As dozens of ships and aircraft from seven countries scour the seas around Malaysia and south of Vietnam, questions mounted over whether a bomb or hijacking could have brought down the Boeing airliner.

- Hijacking could not be ruled out, said the head of Malaysia's Civil Aviation Authority, Azharuddin Abdul Rahmanthe, adding the missing jet was an "unprecedented aviation mystery".

- The disappearance of the Malaysian airliner could dent the national carrier's plan to return to profit by end-2014, equity analysts said. Shares in MAS hit a record low on Monday.

I don't get why some analysts are relating this case to the one of Air France 447 in 2009. Everything about MH370 is much more strange and suspicious.

Because they were both airplanes that went missing

Forget LOST. It's Aliens. It's totally plausible.

You have two illegal passengers using stolen passports.

The plane supposedly tried to turn back to Kuala Lumpur.

A plane simply does not vanish in the sky at 35,000 feet altitude.

No physical elements of the plane spotted other than oil slicks of the coast of Thailand.

Family members got no reception when trying to contract those on the plane (and possibly vice versa).

So, the illegals must have been aliens, who boarded the plane, either took over or revealed themselves and beamed everything to the mothership (possibly orbiting Earth, possibly cloaked). Now the plane is being deconstructed and reversed engineered whilst the passengers are getting anal probed. ;)

ORLY??? :D

Now seriously: 447 "disappeared" in the midst of severe storm area, in the middle of the Atlantic. The very early signs indicated and air crash. MH370 barely have early signs at all.

So far the Navys and Air Forces of Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, China, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Philippines are involved.

Interpol has quashed the idea of the two Iranians as terrorists...confirmed as illegal asylum seekers.

The search area has now been extended to over the Alderman Sea on the western side of the peninsula on the theory 370 diverted way off course.

^^ You forgot The Philippines. One of the first nations to put their hands up and participate, despite having no passengers of their own on board.

It's a joke, a plausible joke! :P

The Straits of Malacca is where the search focus is now after the Malaysian air force searched it's radar tracking history and noticed and unusual flight movement on Saturday, confirmed this morning. The reason why it wasn't noticed was no airline flight on a regular track would perform a manouvre with informing control...It has also reopened the possibility of foul play.

But if the two Iranians were headed for Europe, one to join his mother in Frankfurt -- why would they go from Doha...to Kuala Lumpur; on the Beijing and then to Europe? Kinda roundabout and quite expensive in terms of airfare. Why couldn't at least the younger one try directly for EUrope from Doha? Why, so he could buy the stolen passport in KL??

Malaysia has been criticized for not being open enough to admit they made an error in not admitting 370 did turn west, wasting global efforts to find the plane...in the wrong place.

Malaysia is known for it's immense and sometimes misplaced pride. It also takes pride in it's military and for such a failure to take place has deeply embarrassed the nation that has taken decades to shake off it's former colonial 2nd world status.

Search for plane expands as third possible sighting adds to confusion
Officials suggest missing Malaysia Airlines flight may have been spotted on military radar 200 miles north-west of Penang

The international hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 expanded to cover 27,000 square nautical miles on Wednesday as a third potential last sighting added to the confusion over its movements.

India became the 12th country to say it would join the search, indicating how far north the operation had been extended.

The plane was heading north-east to Beijing when it took off from Malaysia in the early hours of Saturday morning. Officials have said it may have turned around and headed back to Kuala Lumpur when it was lost.

On Wednesday, in a new twist to the mystery, officials suggested the plane may have been detected on military radar at 2.15am on Saturday, 200 miles north-west of Penang – a point which is not only west of the Malay peninsula, but so far north that it would be beyond the coast of Thailand. It was the third possible final time and location officials have given.

"We are not saying this is MH370. It's an unidentified plot," said air force chief Rodzali Daud at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysian authorities are facing growing criticism about muddled and sometimes contradictory briefings.

China's foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters: "Right now there is a lot of information, and it's pretty chaotic, so up to this point we too have had difficulty confirming whether [detection over the strait of Malacca] is accurate or not."

Vietnamese officials had said they were calling off their air search and scaling back their sea search pending further information from Malaysia, but have since announced they will resume a full-scale search.

Malaysia's transport minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, told reporters: "With each day that passes, I fear search and rescue becomes just search – but we will never give up hope."

He insisted that authorities had been consistent and transparent, adding: "It is only confusion if you want it to be seen to be confusion."

He told reporters: "We have nothing to hide."

Five days after Beijing-bound MH370 disappeared not long after taking off from Kuala Lumpur at 12.41am on Saturday, questions regarding its final moments have if anything multiplied.

The last certain contact with the plane was at around 1.30am, when it was flying over the South China Sea, between Malaysia and Vietnam. Subsequent readings come from military radars which can detect civilian planes but do not communicate with them, meaning that they cannot identify a particular flight. It is not clear if these radar readings were cross-checked with other information.

On Tuesday it was reported that the Malaysian air force chief said the plane had been detected at 2.40am close to Pulau Perak, an island in the strait of Malacca – meaning it had not only turned back but flown right across the peninsula. Rodzali Daud subsequently denied making that comment, but it is not clear if the authorities are discounting the possible presence of MH370 over the strait or simply cannot confirm it.

Experts stress it is far too early to be certain what happened. If both the military radar spots are correct, then they could be consistent with the plane turning back and attempting to navigate back to Kuala Lumpur along the west coast of the peninsula.

Hm. Interesting post. I hope that's not the case. This is not the time for pride.

Just FYI, Malaysia has never been a second world country. For a definition, check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_World

Didn't crash, wasn't hijacked, not terrorism or theft. That leaves aliens and a space/time/continuium portal. I'm leaning towards aliens.

Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth

Malaysia Airlines MH370: China in new 'debris' clue

Chinese officials suggest the images may show pieces of wreckage

Satellite images of possible debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been released on a Chinese government website.

The three images show what appear to be a large, floating object in the South China Sea. Previous sightings of possible debris have proved fruitless.

The China-bound plane went missing on Friday with 239 people on board.

It vanished about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur as it flew south of Vietnam's Ca Mau peninsula.

No distress signal or message were sent.

The three images are:

_73545575_303251.png
_73545577_303253.png

The images - only published on Wednesday - were released on the website of China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence.

Map co-ordinates alongside them place the object - or objects - in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam.

I was being kind...It was a third world and almost became a second world if it wasn't for Commonwealth forces successfully fighting off communist insurgents...now it's a developing nation.

None that I could expect. Of all the ships and planes that went through the Bermuda Triangle recently, as well as the Dragon's triangle, no life-threatening incident occurred by then. But international authorities will slam a ban against transit to those paranormally-active areas

It's in the SEA (South East Asia). Y don't they look there???

Because if it is aliens we will never know. The entire world will prepare a cover-up story and disperse the passengers (If they are alive) in insane asylums to keep them quiet. :P:lol:
