Malaysia Airlines says passengers on missing Beijing-bound flight are of 13 different nationalities

And by now, they're each in an equal amount of pieces.

LessO2: RINO: In all seriousness though, what are the odds it was a hijacking? Isn't China having issues with Uighar(sp?) seperatists?

Hard to say right now.  Though with the Boeing 777 having such a good safety record (SFO was a pilot eff-up), I wouldn't rule out a suicidal pilot (look up Egypt Air 990 for one example).


I hope it wasn't a suicidal pilot. Someone posted a website here on FARK a few years ago that had last moment cock pit recordings before crash. I believe that one was on there. That website was really sad to click through. For some reason, I couldn't help myself though. I can't remember what the site was.

Oldiron_79: ummhima2: recent update airline website

"next of kin being notified"

It spun in, there where no survivors.


The update also refers to passengers and crew in the past tense.

[img2u.info image 850x564]

So few details.... did they lose contact in the first hour? The third? It might have crashed in the ocean, it might have crashed in the mountains. That was a long flight.


Loved the book, horrible tv movie. :(

peachy92: TheKnownUniverse: I feel bad that the first thought that crossed my mind was "Can't wait for the Mayday/ACI ep!"

Glad to see I wasn't the only one to think that.

Yes, I'm a Mayday junkie, too.  But, it also calms my fear of flight.

/hoping for the best but bracing for the worst.


I also like documentaries about serial killers. I wonder if it's related. Morbid curiosity of morbid incidents...

Oh no. I hope no Americans were on board. God Bless.

Just watched that the other day.  Somehow it strikes me as one of the creepier episodes...

Because it just ends, there's no resolution or anything. It just... ends, and they're still in the air.

Sorry, my google-fu has failed me tonight - mind filling me in on the reference fellow farkers? Curious minds and all that...

/also, hope the flight emergency landed somewhere... that has no contact with emergency responders?
//... yeah they're probably an impact crater now, sad :-/


It's a Twilight Zone episode -- no, not that one with William Shatner, this one with John Anderson.

Cheryl Ladd was so hot in that film. And an interesting premise. I'd love to see a big budget remake of it. Without the stupid robot.

They're interested alright, but they have no jurisdiction. They just get to read the final reports.
 
2014-03-07 09:04:01 PM  

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?


They are contacting next of kin of crew and passengers.

I'm hoping for a crash and not anything else.

Sad part is two infants are among the lost.
 
2014-03-07 09:04:33 PM  
I'm trying to follow this between work and I really hope they will say there was some sort of miscommunication and everyone is fine, but that is looking unlikely. I wish for search and rescue to go as smoothly as possible and for strength for the families.

Yes, and there are American markings all over that airplane....

germ78: I wonder if the NTSB will get involved since it's a Boeing plane, or is this technically "out of their jurisdiction"?


They can be invited to participate in the investigation by Malaysia's equivalent (and Vietnam's, since it is apparently their airspace), but they can't demand it.

germ78: I wonder if the NTSB will get involved since it's a Boeing plane, or is this technically "out of their jurisdiction"?


Generally it gets investigated by a combination of:
1) country of origin
2) country of destination.
3) country of incident
4) home country of airline
5) home country of airframe
6) home country of engines

Often, many of those are duplicates, but in this case, it would end up being a big multinational investigation.

germ78: I wonder if the NTSB will get involved since it's a Boeing plane, or is this technically "out of their jurisdiction"?


IIRC, the fact it's a Boeing-made plane and many countries (I'm guessing Vietnam and Kuala Lumpur included) probably don't have the resources to fully investigate.  So, I would imagine someone will ask for the NTSB's help.

The NTSB are often invited to take part in investigations in countries around the world. Sometimes it's a tiny third world country with no major crash investigation experience, sometimes it's just to help liaise with the American manufacturer.

I guess you're not to familiar with geography. But I invite you to look up Asia on a map, and reassess that bet. Off the coast of Vietnam is quite a bit away from Best Korea.
