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

"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.

So, everybody who was on the plane is running around in random directions in some jungle somewhere, and whenever they bump into each other they say, "And why would I do that, John?" and "Why are you telling me this, Jack?" and then run off in different directions again?

ummhima2: all this talk about the plane reappearing somewhere suddenly and something just went boom in new york

I think New York was feeling left out of the tragedy loop for a couple days, and just blew up a couple buildings for attention. A building in San Francisco burned down? We're New York! Blow up two!

To be fair, it's very hot in Malaysia.

Nana's Vibrator: Cerebral Ballsy: ummhima2: Cerebral Ballsy: 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.

are you talking about the pictures of the underage girls (17? at the time) in the cockpit with the co-pilot during the flight

my understanding is that the straits of malacca is busy enough with sea traffic that someone would have noticed airliner making unscheduled water landing, debris, or bodies by now

I was talking about all the conflicted stories about where the plane was last seen, which body if water is it hiding under, the discord between the Senate and the CIA.. No wait, I meant between the Malaysian civilian air traffic controllers and the military base that claims to have seen the plane last.

Over Macho Grande?


I don't think I'll get over Macho Grande.

It's not a proper missing airplane thread until someone posts a picture of the word "Lost", a picture of the movie "Millennium", and someone says something to the effect of "it will be in the last place they look", and then someone else feels the need to explain what that means.  Only then will I believe I am truly in another missing Malaysian airplane thread.

Doc Daneeka: 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.

You should. Lost had exactly the same problems as X-Files.

I also notice you live in an alternate world where Fringe, Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones didn't happen. Perhaps you're in some sort of Damon Lindelof-based Purgatory. Can people run sideways in your world?

David Blane on the right there just wanted to try and one-up Copperfield making a plane disappear before, so he did it mid-flight.

Plane drops into ocean. People not sure which bit of the ocean it dropped into. Ocean is very big. Might take some time before any results. No tropical islands full of polar bears are involved.

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.

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?

Slaxl: 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 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!

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.
