Paris1127: raerae1980: Now I have to go watch Mayday: air disasters on youtube.

I love that show... I wish it aired new episodes in the US at the same time they premiere in Canada


I feel bad that the first thought that crossed my mind was "Can't wait for the Mayday/ACI ep!"

I usually binge watch that show on YouTube right before I have to fly. Dunno why, makes flying interesting maybe....

Russ1642: qorkfiend: DoctorCal: Sum Ting Wong wanted for questioning.

We should get Ho Lee Fuk in here as well.

We Tu Lo is on his way in for questioning.


Do you think they can make it in with Wun Wing?

Are there any other possibilities than the plane crashing?  Seems like a hijack would have been radioed in by now.  Have there been other flights that have shown up after being hours late?

Russ1642: My money is on them getting off course and flying into N Korean airspace where they were promptly blown to bits.


Well a straight line doesn't put them within 1000 km of Best Korea. But if they swing out over the East China Sea then they could get significantly closer.

GWSuperfan: Here's the last flightracker data:  http://flightaware.com/live/flight/MAS370/history/20140307/1635Z/WMKK / ZBAA/tracklog


That's weird! It's at 35K ft and suddenly dissapears! There are no mountains that high and you don't see any sudden descent.

Target Builder: Gyrfalcon: Either it's crashed, which is bad; or it's gone through a wormhole in time and will end up in another dimension, which is also bad.

Well, it'll be bad if the Langoliers get to them before the folks from 1000 years into the future get them set up to restart humanity.


I just scrolled down the thread... *shakes tiny fist*

Are you looking at a globe? Planes don't fly in straight lines on most 2D maps.

If I'm reading that right, the last reported contact was at 4.7073, 102.5278... which if Google Maps is right, is still over Malaysia not far from Kuala Lumpur.  I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's not a NK missile.

You'd have to be considerably off course to get to best Korea from Malaysia.

None. It wasn't a military flight.

Explosive decompression would do it. Or just plain explosion. But don't forget ADSB transponders require power and can be turned off. Proper tracking radar as used by ATC would still be able to follow debris falling out of the sky.

Is that next to Baritone Canyon?

Or Tenerife?

Fair enough ... but NK is well east of Beijing and they are approaching from SSW.

Besides, that flight tracking data the GWSuperfan posted suggested that things went bad shortly after takeoff.

This is what I was going to ask ... where is that tracking data coming from? What could interrupt the feed?

TFA has been updated and reports that contact was lost approximately two hours into the flight.

Last contact was about 20 minutes into the flight. Airplane people: Does rate mean air speed? If so that drop in the last few entries...

Yeah ... it looks like it was leveling off at 35,000 ft. The climb rate drops off and the number makes sense.

But that is the last entry.

almejita: Are there any other possibilities than the plane crashing?  Seems like a hijack would have been radioed in by now.  Have there been other flights that have shown up after being hours late?


Perhaps the radio system(s) going down... somehow.  I don't think anything that only affects communications is a serious possibility, but I'm no airplane technician, either... for all I know, this sort of thing happens all the time.


/Good luck.  We're all counting on you.

"Rate" typically refers to ascent rate (positive) or descent rate (negative).

FTFA:   The airline said the plane lost contact with Subang air traffic control at approximately 2:40 a.m.

Most unfortunate name in this situation.
 
2014-03-07 08:32:32 PM  
So... they lost track of it while it was over wilderness and still in Malaysian airspace.

I'm guessing all they'll find is debris.

Not good. Not good at all. Vanished into thin air.

/or a bad landing


Have we ruled out a hijacking yet? Could a hijacker turn off the transponder or something?

No, I think that people will be learning southeast Asian geography this evening.
 
2014-03-07 08:35:27 PM  
Either subby thinks that the 12 crew members aren't people or I may have just figured out what caused the plane to disappear.

/either way, flight took off with 239 people on board
//hopefully all still safe somewhere

"We have no idea where this aircraft is right now."

I can tell you where it isn't if that will narrow the search down.
