A group of family of the passengers on the aircraft is now calling Malaysia murderers. If they did anything wrong, it was not to involve the U.S. in the search asap.
But yeah the Malaysians wasted a lot of time not bringing in more experienced and expert help, and were not as forthcoming as they could have been.
Sigh.. the key is not the freaking holding pattern, but the fact that the passengers and crew were knocked out... and letting the auto-pilot fly till the plane ran out of fuel.. THAT is the point I was making.Helios 522 entered into a holding pattern once it reached it's destination; and did so until it crashed. Had the same thing happened to 370, it would've done the same.
Fire. Electronical failure. A mistake, the buttons are close to others. If there was a decompression, then fog will be generated along with high sounds (your ear drums basically pop), and hitting the wrong button in the chaos is relatively easy.It also doesn't explain why the transponder was turned off.
It almost seems that American's want this to be some sort of terror instead of mechanical failure... protecting Boeing?
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
The pilot was most likely paid by terrorists or some govt. w/a nefarious agenda to commandeer the plane and take it off course and land somewhere else. That's the only logical explanation given the evidence.
Immarsat is lying about its satellite data findings. It claims that it was able to pinpoint the plane's last ping location given its relative speed w/respect to the satellite in space, by computing the Doppler shift in the ping's wavelength.
but that make no sense at all. The Doppler shift in radio waves from a source moving much slower than c is sooooooooo small that unless the satellite had been designed to pick up such a small shift, it won't.
And it doesn't make sense that the satellite would be designed to do so--an extremely expensive feature that would be used ONLY for relativistic science experiments. It's primarily a commercial satellite used to send info back to a plane, NOT track its altitude, velocity, etc. There would be no need to detect Doppler shifts at all.
“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.
