Interesting.

This would be about 285nmi southwest of where the ADS-B (transponder) data was lost.  Hypoxia or foul play are really the only things I could think of at this point.  If it's foul play, are we even sure we're looking for a crash?

Have they tried checking Skull Island or Monster Island?

Isn't Pulau Perak that dish with the cubed cheese in the creamed spinach?   Or is it the one with the chickpeas?

Ok then, where do you land and then hide a large jetliner?  You can't exactly use a makeshift jungle runway.

You can if you only use it once.

I'm kinda disappointed that in this day and age finding a crashed airplane is so difficult. When are we going to have Spock just use the ship's sensors to scan for debris?

Good question.  It was loaded with enough fuel to get to Beijing, that gives it the range to get as far as Africa or the middle east.  If it had descended to avoid radar, that limits the range considerably.  Of course if that were the case, it should have surfaced by now with a demand for ransom or whatever the motivation were.  Hypoxia is a possibility but an explosive decompression bad enough that they weren't able to get the oxygen masks on should be bad enough to destroy the plane, yet there is no wreckage to be found.  Really, I'm not seeing any likely scenario here.  This has got to be one of the weirdest aviation incidents I've ever seen.

They landed on The Island after some dick forgot to key in the numbers.

Actually they are, they've got US Navy plane doing just that. Its not perfect, but they're doing what they can.

I don't know why you people automatically jump to ridiculous conclusions like aliens.  More likely scenario is gremlins.

This is a plot by the Obama administration to make us have individual trackers placed under our skin. In a few days Obama will go on national television saying he signed an executive order forcing mandatory tracking devices be installed.

Hell-of-a-good mystery story. Some of the theories are hilarious. Feel bad for the people involved.

As some one who booked a flight from the UK to Sydney on Air Malaysia a few hours before this all went down (pun intended) I am not getting a kick.

I'm starting to think this plane will land in Beijing one month from the day it was originally supposed to land. Everyone on board will be saying "what are you talking about, where have we been. We were in a six hour flight."
It's hard to believe with all the technology both on the ground and in the plane they can't find a thing. Not to mention if they now think it went down in the malacca straits that no one on the water saw anything. It's my understanding that that is a highly traveled water way.

How far was the plane from the nearest radar station? That would indicate how low the plane could descend before it vanished from radar screens, what with the curvature of the planet, atmospheric effects and all. I'm wondering if there was a catastrophic electrical failure of some kind that brought the plane down and kept the crew from sending any kind of alert to the ground stations.
 
2014-03-11 10:03:36 AM
Of course it's aliens. This is almost exactly the plot of the first two episodes of The Event.

You don't fly 250 miles after a catastrophic failure.  Yet the transponder was off.  That does seem to strongly suggest that somebody turned it off.  I have absolutely no reason to believe that plane has in fact crashed, where is the wreckage?  Nor do I have any reason to believe it's on the ground somewhere, why hasn't it turned up yet?  Where are the hijacker's demands?  Nothing about this makes one lick of sense.

Michael Savage wrote a novel called "A Time For War" recently.  In the novel, the Chinese had a portable, non-explosive EMP device that would do exactly what you're talking about.

I fully expect that since I have mentioned Michael Savage, I will be forthwith vilified on this here public forum.

If the plane made it to the Malacca straits in such a manner that nobody noticed immediately (i.e. before days of radar analysis) then it's also possible that it went even further.

I'm wondering if Malaysia's ability to track planes without depending on transponders is not all that great and they don't want to admit it.

2 people claim to have seen it after it lost contact. I read this in the DM.

It would be Vietnam airspace by that point, no?

I see headlines on Drudge talking about it being way off course last time on radar, And that the search is on land now.  No matter the reason for the disappearance, it is going to end up being a strange story.

Total loss of power. Pilot pulls a Scully and belly lands it and it sinks intact.

They'll find it in the Gobi Desert in a few years, just like Close Encounters...

Looks like I was correct in my assessment yesterday that the plane was hijacked and flown to some remote tropical island.

Or in this case a lair ...

No. The Bermuda Triangle has been out of work since the recession began, and there's no Walmart nearby.

I don't know much about aircraft but it does seem possible that for whatever reason they went off course,lost contact, made an emergency landing, and are *gasp* in an area without cell reception.
