Mr_Juche: Nope. It is the third, I believe. BA at Heathrow, Asiana at San Francisco, and (hopefully not) this one. &&& is a pretty good, safe aircraft.
qorkfiend: DoctorCal: Sum Ting Wong wanted for questioning.We should get Ho Lee Fuk in here as well.
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.
ummhima2: http://my.news.yahoo.com/mas-ceo-no-sign-technical-failure-mh370-0508 0 0634.htmlummmmm who thinks dropping off radar and losing all contact is not some form of technical failure accidental or intentional
RepoManTSM: The co-pilot was only 27 if that means anything.
shower_in_my_socks: No, but ALMOST. So let's just think about that.
the_sidewinder: shower_in_my_socks: I'm sorry but we just had a 3.2 earthquake in LA so all of this missing airplane talk will have to be put on hold.Did a chair get knocked over?
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.
DoctorCal: Sum Ting Wong wanted for questioning.
shower_in_my_socks: ransack.: shower_in_my_socks: RepoManTSM: The co-pilot was only 27 if that means anything.Well...Who's that top center?Brian Jones from The Rolling Stones. Also died at 27. Drowned in his swimming pool.
cameroncrazy1984: grumpfuff: I was referencing Tommorrow Never Dies, which is what I thought cameron was hinting at.That is exactly what I was hinting at.
Grainy eyewitness picture of the plane just seconds before voice contact was lost...
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.
Farking Canuck: walktoanarcade: Heh. "may" Ok, that's it, I'm putting you on ignore to reserve my responses and attention to those who aren't negative by default as you are. Doesn't take much to get put on ignore by you. Just point out that your posts are nonsensical and/or uninformed and boom ... down comes the ban hammer.
duckpoopy: I am a stupid LIAR who spreads false reports.
ummhima2: CraicBaby: 8 inches: Anyone notice the names of the pilot and co-pilot?Why yes, that is racist speculation.You do know that Malaysia has a significant Muslim population, right?why does that matter china isnt
ummhima2: /banner ad at the top of my page is for ...... malysia airline flights//drew did you hear that people consider fark a reliable news source
cameroncrazy1984: Mrtraveler01: CNNI is interviewing someone from Malaysia Airlines saying that the last point of contact was over the South China Sea.Oh damn, we really should be looking for a stealth boat then.
zerkalo: I pray it wasn't uigher separatists as that would be a major escalation in tactics
gblive: Interesting Airbus rant considering that this plane was a Boeing 777-200.
WTFDYW: LoneDoggie: WTFDYW: WTFDYW: TommyDeuce: TommyDeuce: WTFDYW: 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.It was a play - and I'm totally blanking on the namehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Victor_RomeoGot itThat's not it.What I am talking about had a compilation of links to cockpit recorders. There was no intro. just a website.http://www.planecrashinfo.com/lastwords.htmHard to read a lot of those.BINGO
Kensey: Russ1642: Kensey: katerbug72: 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 CanadaI watched it on Netflix today Some pretty interesting crashes. The Gimli glider was cool as hell.Although it's not strictly relevant here, my favorite tale of harrowing aerial struggle is Pardo's Push.You can just imagine the kind of thoughts going through a pilot's mind at a time like that... to come up with a long-shot like that, that actually worked, is amazing.I liked the one where the captain was blown out the windscreen and they managed to hold onto his feet for the rest of the flight. That guy flew like Mitt's dog for quite a while.Oh my word..."His clothes were ripped from his body by the slipstream, the police said."Am I a bad person for laughing just a tiny bit?
duckpoopy: 9:30am - (UNOFFICIAL) Flight MH370 has resurfaced and landed safely in Nanming, China. Early reports say that the aircraft had experienced a cockpit electronics malfunction.As of this moment, the flight crew and all 239 passengers onboard are believed to be unharmed as some of the crew has already informed their families of their safety.More updates to come.
germ78: I wonder if the NTSB will get involved since it's a Boeing plane, or is this technically "out of their jurisdiction"?
mark12A: So technically those aren't Chinese territorial waters. They belong to VietnamYes, and there are American markings all over that airplane....
duckpoopy: That's it - I am never farking flying again. How much is a cruise to Europe?
ummhima2: recent update airline website"next of kin being notified"
cameroncrazy1984: Oldiron_79: LessO2: They said the plane "departed" at 12:41 a.m., which means they pulled the jet bridge back and the plane pushed from the gate then.No idea how long the taxi was to the runway, but I'm guessing pushback, tug detaching, taxi, then wheels-up...that would take 15 minutes at a non-busy time. If they flew a direct path to PEK, Google-fu estimates they went down somewhere over or near Vietnam.Maybe the Vietnamese shot it down. Does anyone really want to go to war with them if they did?There are probably some 70 year old men that wouldn't mind avenging some buddies' deaths.
Russ1642: My money is on them getting off course and flying into N Korean airspace where they were promptly blown to bits.
macross87: What can you make of this?
Russ1642: Phony_Soldier: Just finished watching the Nova program on the Tenor Reef incident. My thoughts and prayers are with them.Pavorotti
some_beer_drinker: shastacola: 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?Someone on CNN says the plane would have run out of gas by now.well, i guess that's it then. where will they bury the survivors?
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?
Farking Canuck: Besides, that flight tracking data the GWSuperfan posted suggested that things went bad shortly after takeoff.
Phony_Soldier: Just finished watching the Nova program on the Tenor Reef incident. My thoughts and prayers are with them.
GWSuperfan: Here's the last flightracker data: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/MAS370/history/20140307/1635Z/WMKK / ZBAA/tracklog
LessO2: Mr_Juche: Nope. It is the third, I believe. BA at Heathrow, Asiana at San Francisco, and (hopefully not) this one. &&& is a pretty good, safe aircraft.I like flying the ### better, myself.
MFAWG: 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.What if they end up on planet Cameltoe from Star Trek TNG? That would be kinda OK.
