Military Gaps

Air Corridors searched

Whatever the speculation, it's not looking good.

(CNN) -- New information from the Thai government bolsters the belief that missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took a sharp westward turn after communication was lost.

And it looks like that turn was no accident.

It seems that a big issue here now is getting data from other governments' satellites in order to try and work out where the plane went as they really don't want others to know who they've been spying on. :-(

Another theory out today is that once the plane came across another going in the required direction it has tailgated it so that the 2 planes would appear as 1 on radars.

Cheers.

That plane, did probably land on some old abandoned ex military airfield, now controlled by som Jihadist terrorist group. There are hundreds of potential abandoned airfields having enough length to be able to handle a 777, within the reach of the flight in question.

I would not be surprised if it after the search has calmed down a bit, it will get airborne again, and try to knock down the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.

That part of the search, is uncertain at this time.

The search expands to 2.2 million square miles.

As good of guess as any, but no direct evidence to support it so shall put it into the catagory of hypothetical.

Could have done that during the initial flight.

The big worrying question is that IF the plane did land safely somewhere, what the hell have they done with the 239 people on board?

With all that is being stated on this thread, finally someone pulled the rabbit out of the hat.

If the aircraft did not disintegrate or hit the water.........

Edit:

Another worrying report....

Update

"Maldivian news outlets have quoted the islanders as saying they saw a low-flying passenger jet at around 6:15 local time (1:15 GMT) on 8 March and that its colours matched those of the missing plane."

The biggest problem is there is no Agency/Government in charge of this Investigation.

This Investigation must speak with One Voice.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- The FBI joined forces with Malaysian authorities in analyzing deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday - wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty.

It seems odd that hijackers would wait so long to announce their demands. But it is also odd that, in this day and age, no trace of a crash site can be found if that was their fate.

There maybe some breaking news coming through from here.

http://www.news.com.au/world/possible-wreckage-spotted-in-search-for-missing-malaysia-airlines-flight-mh370-raaf-plane-on-its-way-to-identify-objects/story-fndir2ev-1226859680610
A news conference is scheduled at around 3.30pm AEDST.

[edit] Multiple objects sighted awash about 2,600kms/1,615miles west of Perth by satellite imagery, 1 of these objects is approximately 24m/78' long. This distance gives our AP-3C Orion aircraft 2hrs of search time over the area, but no confirmation yet on whether the debris is from the plane or from a ship. Visibility is presently rated as poor so this will hamper aircraft and satellite searches.

Cheers.

Those 2 long objects spotted by sats highly looking like emergency inflatable raft that inflates during the emergency situation at the door side. But it is too early speculation.

If this wreckage is confirmed, then where it is could have been expected, at the end of the "southern arc" given maximum flight time. It did seem rather problematical that 239 people were being held captive somewhere, given the food and water necessary. This does seem the most likely lead so far. But how deep is the water there? Can the black box be found and retrieved.

And also what the hell was the plane doing there ???

Simple to control that many folks if you know how....


As for water depth I think its around 3000m - say 2 miles. Thus making recovery of debris "challenging"

No debris found as 2nd day of search ends

"Each aircraft is able to search for no more than two hours, due to the distance from land."

However, I now have a problem with all these reports.

With the cost and the amount of vessels and aircraft in the search, would it not have been more sensible to send a carrier in, thereby ensuring longer air searches than 2 hours?
