I'm just going to toss out my theory that a portal opened up and it's now on the far side of the universe.

Are they even certain it took off?

Ever drop a screw in a swimming pool? This is a lot like that.

All I care about is when this will be made into a "Mayday: Air disaster investigation" episode. I suspect it will be a good one.

I am so looking forward to it, I just hope the investigation doesn't take years

During my clumsy high school days I dropped a screw, but she wasn't in a swimming pool.

How do we a lose a plane in this age of technology?
 
2014-03-13 11:19:54 AM  
I'm begining to think a massive cover up is happening. Maybe Malaysian AF blew it out of the sky by accident due to some overzeolous missile tech, fighter pilot and now the government is too afraid to admit it... and once this news story dies down they will just quietly sweep this under the rug.

This is more like dropping a screw in a swimming pool, then spending days combing through every inch of the tool shed to try and find it because that's where it SHOULD be.

It's been FIVE DAYS you tards. Give it time.

Hell, even the farking headline doesn't make any sense.
 
2014-03-13 11:21:33 AM  
These are the only facts we know:
The transponder was turned off
The plane is missing

Beyond that it's all speculation

It may have been a fire or a massive system failure. I doubt somebody blew it out of the sky.

The ocean is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to the ocean.

Are they sure it even left the airport at this point?
 
2014-03-13 11:26:28 AM  
No EPERBs?
No radar tracks?
No satellite traces?

Yes, like dropping a screw in the Chesapeake Bay.

We don't even know that the transponder was "turned off", just that ground stations did not receive the transponder signal.

Don't blame the search teams.  I have no doubt they're doing everything they can.  The lack of coordination and general incompetence of certain governments, on the other hand...

Malaysia. Crashed sayof airplane that has stoped Landsing "Sea, in ya go" Are they dead or not. Common sense Says yes. WSJ Looking for four hours more of flight -OR- "hello, I am not sending signal to ground so don't wait for us"

They somehow managed to spool up the engines enough to achieve escape velocity and are now comfortably on their way to Mars.

You're a genius! It was still at the gate this whole time. The guy with the flashlight batons took the day off and the pilots were stuck waiting for a signal to move away from the terminal.

If US Intelligence can tell when a submarine on the other side of the world warms up its reactor (something that probably isn't publicized), I just cannot believe that they (or another intelligence/recon organization) doesn't at least know where the thing went down, and have a pretty good idea why.

I'm not going to start yelling conspiracy, but given how well planes are tracked, the sophistication of surveillance equipment, and the desire by sigint agencies to have the entire planet covered 100% of the time, I just can't believe someone doesn't know what happened.

What I'm more interested in is why we aren't being told.

I'm still waiting for the Asiana/SFO one. I want to hear how that snide English narrator diplomatically announces that the cause of the crash was due to the pilots not knowing how to fly an airplane.

The Malaysian government's handling of this makes FEMA's response to Katrina look positively competent in comparison.

If they could detect it and did, then they wouldn't say because it would give away their intelligence capabilities.

The cause of the crash was due to the aircraft not being sufficiently automated to protect the pilots from themselves when confronted with a non-functioning airport ILS.  It could have happened to anyone.  And by anyone, I mean not anyone who learned to fly a real airplane outside a simulator before shifting over to their ATP course.

Either they don't want people (foreign governments) to know exactly how good their detection systems are, or they don't want us (the taxpaying public) to know how bad the detection systems are.

It's like the articles about the "ghost cruise ship" floating around the Atlantic. Supposedly all the superpowers can spot a periscope from orbit, but no one could find a 200ft drifting hunk of steel that was sending out automated distress signals.

If you aren't looking the right direction and for the right thing when something happens, you aren't going to see it.
