b2theory: Has anyone checked if it landed in 1941?


No, it hasn't landed in Birmingham, Alabama.

Looks like a whole lot of left feet are going to start washing up around Vancouver in about six months.

Chris Ween: I wonder how many of the passengers no longer need their wheelchairs.


Sadly, I'm going to guess "all of them."
 
2014-03-12 08:23:07 AM
I am thinking the plane is just paused while they remove all the passengers and replace them with dead bodies.

That's racist.  And oh so true.

SlothB77: This is the actual plane from the TV show Lost. It's the rare reality/ fiction convergence.


It's The Lone Gunmen vs. 9/11 all over again!

This passenger wants a refund. And an aisle seat.

Well, one thing is for sure. No matter how this ends, it will be a better ending than LOST.

Yes I remember. I had the lasagna.
 
2014-03-12 08:42:40 AM
Well they seem to have narrowed it down to - the plane is in Southeast Asia, probably.

Did they have a competent backup crew who could take over?

It's actually beginning to sound a lot more like Air France flight 447, but with completely inept, constantly squabbling search parties.  And it took those guys a month to determine it crashed and two years to recover the black boxes.  So I wouldn't hold your breath.

hammettman: 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.

Those families must be hella frustrated by now.

Actually, no.  Debris from AF447 surfaced within a day or two, exactly where they expected it would be based on the ACARS data.  Yes it did take them 2 years to find the black boxes because they were in about 15,000 feet of water, but floating debris and in fact bodies were recovered within days.

2014-03-12 08:57:49 AM
well, since there are no aliens here, no terrorist has taken real responsibility, Imma say the plane went down in water.  Probably all dead.  There is no great mystery here.
 
2014-03-12 08:58:03 AM

Spanky McStupid: 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.


Well, the U.S. Navy would never take out an airliner that appears to be on an attack vector, so I'm sure that would work.

Every day I've been thinking this is some crazy coverage and stories coming from this jet crash.. I don't remember this level of insanity from US crashes. They just say oh it's gonna take us some time to find it, right? I'm not misremembering the past am I? Because the developments in this story have been telenovela level craziness.

Is this a Sherlock Holmes reference? Because I am watching that scene right now...

I am creeped out.

Love this episode though.. The Woman's character is right out of the real Sherlock Holmes stories.

Crap. Are you guys making Lost references? I saw two episodes from the first season and I knew right away where that's how was headed so I never bothered to watch it.

Can we please make Langoliers references instead?

Take some time to find it usually means, a couple of hours tops with a plane this size.

The only thing in recent memory that compares to it was the air france crash a few years back, and even in that one shiat was turning up a day or so later.
 
2014-03-12 09:16:04 AM
Is there anything really off the table as far as speculation goes now?

My personal theory is they will suddenly show up flying in the same spot in 2029 with no memory of what happened, and then everyone's minds will be blown.

It eventually worked. But, at first it showed me that. It seemed fitting.

I was referring to ocean crashes. Sometimes they take months.

I have found four ships and two oil rigs. No signs of a plane crash.

I try not to be a comspiracy nut job, but does this whole thing seem crazy from beginning to end? I mean plane disappears(usually when a plane crashes isn't there some sign of trouble or radio reports or something?), then we hear two people used stolen passports to get on board (but within a day we are told they "probably" weren't terrorists), now we are told no one even knows if the plane turned around? I'm not an engineer but wouldn't you see a long curving arc? It's not like you can throw it in reverse.

Why couldn't you just throw it in reverse?

I've seen the theory that Best Korea stole it.  That's both an insane theory and completely frightening all at the same time.
I would hope that hijacking and hiding a commercial airliner would be grounds for termination these days.
 
2014-03-12 09:22:22 AM
The ending of that show has to be one of the most widely misunderstood endings of any TV show ever.  No, they didn't all die in the crash.  No, they weren't in purgatory the whole time. Yeesh.  If you stopped watching after the first season, your interpretation of the ending is probably wrong.

People love to criticize the show, especially its ending, but IMO there hasn't been a SciFi/Fantasy drama on TV as well-done and compelling since.  It was hell of a fun ride while it was on.  The only other similar show I felt the same way about was the X-Files.
