    Re: Where is the plane?

    All of you are missing the obvious.

    It is in the Twilight Zone. It has time traveled to the future and it will be waiting for us.

    I wonder what the passengers thought though, when as soon as they entered the Twilight Zone, everything went to black and white.

    Nothing happened. There is not plane. Never was. The plane is just a myth perpetrated by the man to keep poor people down.
    I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.

    Re: Where is the plane?

    Well, apparently it did not blow up when it first went off the radar.

    '(Reuters) - Malaysia's military believes a jetliner missing for almost four days turned and flew hundreds of kilometers to the west after it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country's east coast, a senior officer told Reuters on Tuesday.

    In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew.

    Malaysian authorities have previously said flight MH370 disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese capital Beijing.

    "It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the senior military officer, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.

    That would appear to rule out sudden catastrophic mechanical failure, as it would mean the plane flew around 500 km (350 miles) at least after its last contact with air traffic control, although its transponder and other tracking systems were off.'

    Maybe a pilot killed the other pilot, locked the cockpit door, switched off the transponder and then changed course for 40 minutes and then dove the plane into the ground/water.

    Not that this makes sense either...I am stumped.

    The plane was finally discovered by satellite this morning. It got lost in Michelle's crack.

    The off-course heading certainly indicates a hijacking. If they were aware of the radar and telecom shortcomings in the area, they could reach Laos, Vietnam, Kampuchea, Thailand, Burma, etc. Where are there heavy duty players to have commandeered an airfield for landing and hanger to park it in? It was fueled to fly to Bejing, so there are numerous options. Maybe it's the beginning of a new cottage industry. Kidnap a few hundred passengers and ransom them one at a time as privately as possible. With the GPS satellite tracking of trucks, planes, trains, cabs, etc. , I find it hard to believe that its' last destination is unknown. The Malacca Straits are critical shipping routes and I know the CIA and other Intelligence would have a satellite parked overheard to track military movements, especially in light of Obama's "shift to Asia."

    All I can say is that I'm glad it was an overnight trip (to and from), which allowed us to sleep most of the way. Otherwise I would have spent hours tormenting myself about all of the possible disasters that could happen in mid flight. Most of our travel was over areas that probably humans have never set foot.

    In younger days I wouldn't have given such a flight a second thought. Now, even traveling interstate bugs me. I've got a trip to N.C. and another to NYC in the near future and I'm not looking forward to the flying part. I hate feeling that way about flying despite knowing its statistically the safest way to travel. And over the years I've traveled many thousands of miles in and out of the country.

    This sad event hasn't helped my little increasing phobia.
    The 777 is a very safe aircraft and your'e much more likely to die on the eay to the airport than you are in Airplane.

    That jet is filled with redundancies where there can be a total sub system failure, and you'll never know it happened.

    I used to work on Airplanes as a A and P certified mechanic when I was younger. Ive seen 737s with bullet holes in their fuselage's towed into the Hangar.

    Airplanes that lost a engine, that had to be flown VFR because they lost their ok instruments.

    They're very safe and dependable.

    Ive already stated that I think this plan was landed somewhere.

    Re: Where is the plane?

    A commercial airline has comm, nav, and guidance and control systems on it, most of which are battery back-up units in case of catastrophic failure. They should be transmitting on VOR/ILS, IFF, UHF, VHF and HF, position indicators (and emergency beacons in a crash scenario). It is kinda crazy they just...vanished.

    Thanks, Fenton.

    I'm inclined to be on that same train of thought about what happened. If that's the case, it's had to have been a well thought out plan. Motive???
