I wonder how many of the passengers no longer need their wheelchairs.
 
2014-03-12 07:13:20 AM
The Malaysian air force can't even keep track of their own statements, how can one expect them to keep track of an entire plane.
 
2014-03-12 07:14:01 AM
So you're saying the plane is now in the 1970s?
 
2014-03-12 07:16:35 AM
Any of the passengers named WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALT?
 
2014-03-12 07:17:33 AM
It sounds more and more like the people responsible for managing aircraft and airspace in that part of the world really don't pay much attention to their jobs. You can easily lose an entire airplane if you take your eyes off of it for long enough.
 
2014-03-12 07:19:24 AM
boss, boss! it's the plane!!!
 
2014-03-12 07:19:27 AM
Don't tell me what I can't do!
 
2014-03-12 07:20:29 AM
I'm betting on a Payne Stewart type of deal, but the switched-off transponder pokes a hole in that.

Kidnapped by Dr. Doom, maybe.

I always wanted to make motel with monthly rates and nice kitchenettes and name it "Live Together, Dine Alone"
 
2014-03-12 07:21:13 AM
Anyone of the passengers an obese man who won the lottery?
 
2014-03-12 07:23:15 AM
Has anyone checked if it landed in 1941?
 
2014-03-12 07:23:58 AM
The malaysian people I have seen speaking on tv seem incompetent and borderline retarded.

1. Locate jet near Iran abandoned.
2. Local crew to fly jet back to the US (LALB, SF)
3. Detonate Iran's nuke over LALB or SF.
4. Don't need no stinkin' ICBM.
 
2014-03-12 07:26:37 AM
So basically it makes sense to everyone who's paid attention and it's clearly not crashed in purgatory, but for years and years now we're going to hear from people who watched a few minutes about it then rushed to the internet to say the writers made it all up, and they knew it was purgatory all along?

I've been thinking since day one that this event is due to nothing other than Malaysian incompetence.

Incompetence.

Because a random widebody entering US airspace without a filed flight plan would never be suspicious!

2014-03-12 07:29:34 AM
at first I was thinking shot down because of the sudden disappearance, but because of what radar is like in that area, and it can take quite a while between updates, is it possible to have rerouted the jet and landed it quickly somewhere?
 
2014-03-12 07:29:42 AM
Langoliers!
 
2014-03-12 07:30:19 AM
Yet another plane mysteriously disappears into the South China Sea Triangle.
 
2014-03-12 07:31:02 AM
So, why are there bears involved again?

NPR interviewed someone with the last name of Walt yesterday about the story. That's all I could think of throughout the interview.

They should re-issue this series with updates!

The longer this goes on, the more I'm convinced this is the flight crew:

This is the actual plane from the TV show Lost. It's the rare reality/ fiction convergence.
 
2014-03-12 07:37:48 AM
You know, I don't know why exactly, but I suspect somehow this is the fault of one Justin Bieber.

Confabulat: Langoliers!


And that's why I always insist on making sure Bronson Pinschot and/or Dean Stockwell are not on a flight I'm taking.

And Iran has no aircraft already, but apparently does have a nuclear bomb.

tirob: Yet another plane mysteriously disappears into the South China Sea Triangle.


Back before that whole other uninverse stuff became "cool" again, I remember reading a pulpy novel about some ancient city in the jungles of south east asia, a bermuda triangle like region around it, and weird creatures within that behaved suspiciously like Hellraiser stuck on fast forward.

Yup

"The 777 is a modern aircraft with an excellent safety record, as does Malaysia Airlines."

This is a modern newspaper with a very poor record of proofreading, as does Anchorage Daily News.

I love Lost, and was mostly satisfied with the ending, but really that whole "flash-sideways" purgatory world was a horrible idea and they never should've done it... Of course it was going to confuse people... Plus, it's just stupid! I mean, sure I can buy a magical teleporting, time-travelling island, but the idea of an afterlife?? Come on, don't strain my credulity!

Maybe not a US city but how about if they wanted to prove they cannot be stopped?  What if they landed the plane, disembarked all passengers and are just waiting for a US aircraft carrier to enter the vicinity?  They could kamikaze a US aircraft carrier, sans passengers (just to prove they are "compassionate") and take out one of our ships.

Against whom do you retaliate?  They are like ghosts and can strike with impunity.

Alternate nightmare version: they keep the passengers, enter American airspace, dare a fighter to strike by putting a child's voice on the airwaves, begging the Americans to not kill them and them, blammo!

Either way, it's a lose-lose situation.
 
2014-03-12 08:00:40 AM
Vietnamese military authorities said they were searching for the plane on land sea.

I read this in the old-timey gangster voice. "We're searching for the plane on land, see? Nyyaaaaaaaah"

/I know it's from an old movie or something but I only know it from Bugs Bunny cartoons
 
2014-03-12 08:01:05 AM
dnrtf but I read bout crowds throwing water bottles at airline staff due to frustration. That wouldn't work out so well in the states.

Then why not just use an airliner from their own country.

Settle the fark down.

"could lead to rapid decompression and loss of structural integrity of the airplane." Sounds nasty.

I was thinking this as well. Also thinking the transponder issue could be related. Maybe there was a malfunction caused by the depressurization that caused the electrical system to go dead or something along those lines. Any idea how well Boeing tested the system for such an event?
