Natsumi: xmasbaby: Natsumi: There was a bit on CNN that said the engins send back bursts of data and it looks like it flew around for four more hours after the transponder went dead. But that's now been debunked.

I can't find where that story has been debunked.

Here a 3 hour old story from the Wall Street Journal:  http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304914904579434653 903086282?mg=reno64-wsj

http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/13/world/asia/malaysia-airlines-plane/ind ex .html?hpt=hp_t1


At this point, Malaysian officials denying something hardly seems like the same thing as "debunking" it.

Boloxor the Insipid: There is some military grade bullshiat going down in the press right now.  We'll never know what happened for sure.

Which means, yeah, it was shot down.


that's a bingo.
is that how you say it?

The DC government is spending money recording the license plates of passing cars, the CIA can count the number of times that I view Brazillian Fart Porn (BFP), and we can't find farking jumbo jets? 

I say we scale back the war on privacy until it costs us 238 lives.  Our priorities are misplaced.

shift_DAWG: What do you suppose the Chinese would do if a plane with no comms and no squawk overflew Hainan Island?


The Chinese are not the only ones keeping a close eye on the airspace over the Hainan Islands. It seems very unlikely that anybody could shoot down a huge airliner there without everybody else knowing about it.

The current theory on the DM is that it was hijacked and hidden to be used for nefarious purposes. OMFG Terrists!
This makes as much sense as anything else.
Has anyone asked Snowden what he thinks?

brobdiggy: Serious question for people in the know:

It's the year 2014.  We have satellites, GPS, etc.

How the hell can a plane just disappear?  You can apparently track most cell phones to a very small radius with GPS.  Is there any good reason why we DON'T know where a commercial aircraft is at all times?


Other people can chime in, but I think a major reason there is a problem is because the plane lots it's transponder.  Also remember that GPS is not really a "two way" system.  A GPS unit can tell you where you are, but it doesn't feed back information to the GPS satellites.  There has to be some sort of
communication in place (like a network connection) to feed back that info for a 3rd party to know where you are.

The CIA is still trying to figure out how to make this look like an accident before they "locate" the plane somewhere on Mt. Everest.

According to this website the Strait of Malacca is a very important choke point in oil tanker traffic--1 mile wide at points. And infested with pirates.

I'm wondering if the plane was hijacked and was headed for a targeted oil tanker. Lots of people dead, enormous explosion and fire, huge environmental damage, and closure of one of the busiest oil trade routes in the world.

CNN got ahead of the story and ran with ill-sourced rumors? I'm shocked!
