try fect taa daa: The names of the pilot and first officer have been released. The pilot is Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, a Malaysian aged 53.

It's been 12 hours since it disappeared. Hard to believe they haven't found a floating debris field, assuming it was a plummet and not a soft water landing. I know that it took a good day to day-and-a-half to find that Air France ocean wreck a few years ago, but they were hundreds of miles out in the ocean when they went down.

peachy92:
As for this crash, I'm thinking failed repair from a wing strike 2 years ago.  Similar to JAL 123 - failed repair on a bulkhead.

/I really do watch Mayday too much.


Unlikely though. The MAS plane only had wingtip damage, and even if there was a failure, it's unlikely to be so sudden that they couldn't even make a mayday call. My money is on a cargo door not being secured properly.

Coconut Meat: Someone didn't put their phone in airplane mode...

In all seriousness, this is terrible to hear. I don't want to speculate on what might have occurred. I just want to say that this is eerily similar to Air France 447.


Someone forgot to leave the plane on airplane mode.
 
2014-03-08 06:07:22 AM  
Actually most everything said was up in comments about 8 hours ago

They have not found the aircraft because it happened at about 1:40am local time in the middle of the dark dark night

The report of the vietnemese government finding the plane or signal has been denied by the viet government 6 hours ago please check time stamp on your references

Farking Canuck: gblive: Interesting Airbus rant considering that this plane was a Boeing 777-200.

He's just a whack-job who attacks Airbus any chance he gets ... even when it is a Boeing jet in trouble.

I think he's just jealous that Screamliner is a far funnier nick-name than his old, tired Scarebus one.

2014-03-08 08:35:17 AM  

ndeans: try fect taa daa: thanks.  a lil pissed that the best i can get at the moment is a guardian blog...  appreciate it but video would be something...  cutting the cable cord soon.

You really think the MSM here give a flying fark about 4 most likely "brown Americans" on a Malaysian flight from Kuala Lampur to Beijing? They will tomorrow when they have definite news about it, but they aren't going to wake up a staff of people and break their pre-recorded drivel for the late night programming for a flight halfway across the world.

For one, it's the weekend. All the real anchors and such are out partying and resting from a hard week of Primary coverage and prep for upcoming primaries.

Secondly, Spring Break is gearing up. Hell, IT IS Spring Break in Texas and I'm sure other states as well. They have to get mobile stations set up to show all the T&A of drunk young college kids. Because sex sells a whole hell of a lot better than a bunch of dead foreigners on the other side of the globe, especially since most of the people on that plane are from countries that the viewers of the news don't give a damn about.

If that were a plane full of mostly Americans, then it would be a story that the news editors and producers would get excited about and rush to cover. But, it isn't and they'll let the international and local boys do the leg work and feed B-Roll with the AP and Reuters bylines and call it a day.


Sad but soooooooooo true.
 
2014-03-08 08:38:58 AM  
From BBC site:

"No wreckage has been reported by the airline, but Vietnamese planes reported seeing oil slicks in the sea.
The Vietnamese government said two slicks, about 15km (9 miles) long, were consistent with those that could be left by an airliner and had been detected off southern Vietnam."

The Italian reported on board was NOT on the flight, but had a stolen passport.  Also potentially relevant if foul play.

Austrian also NOT on board, stolen passport.  (German news source)  TWO people traveling on stolen passports?  Ok, now I'm highly suspicious of foul play.
 
2014-03-08 09:11:22 AM  
Have we still not located it? In this day and age, and with modern day technology, I'm surprised it takes this long to locate a missing airplane, even if it went down in the water.

Technology or not, the ocean is vast and ships tend to not move quickly.  Search planes are great during the day, not so much at night.

That said, I am kind of surprised too.

Google's attempt at translation from a Chinese news source:

In addition, the U.S. Embassy said the 2:43 U.S. military bases stationed in Thailand U-Tapao SOS signal was listening to some of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 emergency call, said the aircraft cabin facing disintegration driver call, they want a forced landing . U.S. troops are currently stationed in Thailand, Malaysia has been providing this signal.

Wing tip damage, over a year ago, probably not related to this. It takes a LOT to pull a 777 out of the air, broken wing tip not going to do it. If the damage from that incident was great enough to cause a complete/near complete structural failure in the wing, I can't believe they would have missed it/put it back in service. I also can't see it holding up for over a year and hundreds of flight hours before failing.

if you'd like to see how much those wings will take,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rak2HldVp9M

That is a sturdy air-frame, and well overpowered. Sudden and catastrophic is the only failure I can see happening, especially without them getting off a mayday.

Having done some search and rescue I can tell you that you would be really surprised how hard it is to locate something at sea.  From the air it's a little easier, but from the surface it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.  And anything that's submerged may as well have never existed without some serious technology being employed.

2014-03-08 10:16:42 AM  
It was either mechanical or terrorism.  Latest reports have stated that there were people on board with stolen passports.  Which may hint towards the terrorist side of things. I don't know. Something fishy going on is all I got.
