THEY NEVER GOT TO THE DEBRIS YET YESTERDAY.SEE IF THIS DEBRIS IS THE PLANE TODAY.

THE MISSING PLANE MH370 SITUATION AT 3:00AM FRI MAR 21,2014

3AM MAR (3) 21 (3),14 (WE HAVE A TRINITY DAY-GOD IS IN CONTROL REMEMBER

I'M SORRY FOR THE POOR FAMILIES THAT HAVE TO GO THREW THIS.BUT I JUST THINK THE WEST HAS BEEN SCAMED.INDIAN OCEAN-AUSTRALIA AREA.THE DEBRIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOUND BY NOW.I SMELL A SMART DIVERSION-CONTRIVED KIDNAPPING PLOT TO CONTINUE.

IF THEY DO NOT FIND THE DEBRIS IN THE NEXT TWO DAYS.WE HAVE BEEN CONNED AND DECIEVED TO BELIEVE THIS LIE I BELIEVE.THIS IS A KINAPPING LIKE I HAVE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IN MY LIFE.IF IT IS.

LETS GET DOWN TO THE SCHEME OR TRY TO.

OK SO THE PLANE LEFT KUALA LUMPUR.THEN ONCE AGAIN I BELIEVE A DRONE CLONE OF THE MH370-777-200ER WAS UNDER MH370 JUST AFTER IT LEFT LUMPUR. THE DRONE WAS PROBABLY UNDER THE PLANE RIGHT UP TILL THE SETUP SCHEME AT THE TURN.THIS IS WHEN THE DRONE DIVERED THE MH370 AND THE 370 WAS SENT TO INDIA OR ONE OF THE ISLAMIC MUSLIM COUNTRIES TO THE NORTH.WERE IT WAS LANDED AND THE 2O FREESCALE WORKERS TAKEN OFF THE PLANE AND TAKEN TO A PLACE TO BE INTERIGATED.AND I HATE TO SAY IT.BUT THE REST OF THE PASSENGERS WERE PLACED IN CELLS AND THEN KILLED. SINCE THEY WOULD NOT BE USEFUL TO THE KIDNAPPERS UNLESS THEY WOULD USE THEM AS A RANSOM FOR BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.BUT I CAN NOT SEE THESE ISLAMIC CRIMINALS ASKING FOR A RANSOM AS THEY JUST WANT THE NUKE DEFENCE SECRETS FROM THE FREESCALE WORKERS.AND THIS COUNTRY OR COUNTRIES DO NOT WANT TO BE KNOWN-I BELIEVE.THEY WANT TO KEEP THE WHOLE THING A SECRET SO THE WEST WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO THEM FOR THIS ELABERATE KIDNAPPING.IF THE WEST KNEW IT WAS INDIA A ALLIY.THE WEST WOULD BE HOPPIN.OR IF IT WAS ANY OTHER MUSLIM COUNTRY-THE WEST WOULD GO AFTER IT FOR SURE.


IT WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME IF IT WAS A NUSLIM ALLY GETTING BACK AT THE WEST FOR STARTING ALL THESE ARAB SPRINGS IN THE MUSLIM COUNTRIES.BUT IRAN OR SYRIA OR RUSSIA IS MY MAIN CULPRITES.IN MY EYES.

OK LETS GO BACK TO THE DIVERSION AT THE TURN AFTER THE ACARS AND THE TRANSPONDERS WERE SHUT OFF.ALRIGHT SOMEHOW THE PILOTS MANAGED TO SHUT THE COMPLETE 370 WIRE SYSTEM DOWN.AND JUST BEFORE THE CO-PILOT SAID ALRIGHT-GOODNIGHT TO THE CONTROLLER.THE PLAN WAS SET TO GO IN THAT 12-15 MINUTE SPAN WHEN THE ACARS AND TRANSPONDERS WERE SHUT DOWN.AND THE CO-PILOT SIGNED OFF.THAT 15 MINUTE SPAN.THE DRONE WAS AUTOMATIC SET UNDER THE 370-SO WHEN ALL THE WIRING WAS SOMEHOW SHUT DOWN ON THE 370.THE DRONE WIRING WOULD KICK IN AND TAKE OVER THE 370S WIRING ROLE.AND SINCE ALL THE WIRING IS GONE ON THE 370 AND THE DRONE UNDER THE 370 IS INVISBLE TO THE RADARS.THE SCAM IS SET IN MOTION-CALCULATED- CONTRIVED AND DELIBERATE. AFTER THE CO-PILOT SAID GOOD NIGHT-ALRIGHT.THAT WAS THE SIGN TO THE PILOT IN CODE.OK-LETS DO IT.LETS GET THIS KDNAPPING TAKEN CARE OF.THE 370 WAS THEN DRIVEN DIRECTLY TO INDIA OR WHATEVER ARAB MUSLIM COUNTRY.TO BE INTERIGATED. MEANWHILE THE DRONE WAS SET ON AUTO PILOT AND PRE PROGRAMED TO GO DOWN TO THE INDIAN OCEAN FOR THE 6 OR 7 HOUR DRIVE DECEPTION AND DIVERSION TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE IT WAS THE 370 GOING TOWARD THE INDIAN OCEAN.THEN THEY EITHER HAD BOMBS PLANTED ON THE DRONE TO BLOW IT UP WHEN IT GOT TO THE DEEPEST PART OF THE INDIAN OCEAN.OR WHOEVER DONE THIS SOME HOW HAD THERE WARSHIP HIDDEN WITH SOME NEW WARFARE WEAPON THAT WOULD MAKE IT INVISIBLE TO RADAR-GPS-AND WHATEVER ELSE THAT COULD DETECT IT.THE ISLAMIC NATION WOULD LIKE I SAID BLOW THE DRONE UP AT A CERTAIN POINT.SO THE NATIONS AND RADAR WOULD SEE THE PINGS AND BE DIVERTED FROM THE MAIN CRIME SCENE TO THE INDIAN OCEAN.WERE IT CURRENTLY IS.THE ISLAMIC COUNTRY WOULD THEN SET UP THIS SITE WITH WHATEVER ITEM IT PLANTED SO THE RADAR WOULD PICK IT UP.AND SINCE THE 370 STRAIGHT LINE RADAR LED TO THE SCENE OF WERE THIS ITEM WAS IN THE INDIAN OCEAN.THE SET UP WAS COMPLETE. THAT ISLAMIC COUNTRY KNEW THAT AUSTRALIA AND ALL THE NATIONS INVOLVED WOULD COME TO THE INDIAN OCEAN TO THE SCENE TO LOOK FOR THE ALLEDGED MISSING 370 PLANE.THE ISLAMIC SHIP WOULD SCOOT THE SCENE AND GO BACK WERE IT CAME FROM. SINCE NOTHING COULD DETECT IT.AND LIKE ONE ANNOUNCER SAID.THERES NO WHERE TO GO OUT THERE IN THIS INDIAN OCEAN PART-ITS LIKE A LOST CONTINANT.IN ORDER FOR THIS TO WORK.MY GUESS IS IT WAS ONE OF THE NATIONS HELPING OUT WITH THIS RECOVERY.BECAUSE THEN THAT COUNTRY WOULD LOOK LIKE ITS HELPING IN THE RECOVERY.MEANWHILE THAT COUNTRY WOULD ONLY BE HELPING OUT TO MAKE SURE THAT COUNTRIES PLANS GO OFF WITHOUT A HITCH. WHAT A BETTER WAY TO CONTRIVE A PLAN BY BLENDING IN WITH THE RECOVERY.

I JUST HOPE THIS IS A WILD CONSPIRACY THEORY ON MY PART.BUT IF I AM RIGHT. THE WORLD HAS BEEN DECIEVED AND TRICKED BIGTIME BY THIS PLANNED OUT KIDNAPPING AND DIVERSION TO THE INDIAN OCEAN.AND ANOTHER THING THAT TIPPED ME OFF WAS.IT WAS IN ONE OF THE DEEPEST PARTS OF THE INDIAN OCEAN. AND EITHER NEAR THAT GYSTER WERE ALL THE DEBRIS SWIRLS.SO WHO EVEN KNOWS THAT COUNTRY MAY HAVE THROWN THE DRONE IN THE GUYSTER-SINCE I HEARD ALL THE DEBRIS JUST GOES IN A CIRCLE ON AND ON AND ON.NOW WHAT COUNTRY COULD CONTRIVE UP SUCH AN ELABERATE DECEPTION.IRAN.OR RUSSIA ARE MY MAIN GUESSES.BUT IT COULD BE MANY ARAB MUSLIM COUNTRIES WORKING TOGETHER TO GET BACK AT THE WEST FOR THE ARAB SPRINGS.I'D SAY LOOK INTO ALL THE WEST ALLIES THAT WERE INVOLVED WITH THE WESTS ARAB SPRINGS.AND ALSO INVOLVED IN THIS RECOVERY.BUT WE WILL SEE.IF THE PLANE DEBRIS IS HERE.THEN I HAVE A GREAT IMAGINATION.BUT I'D SAY-IF THERES NO DEBRIS FOUND IN THE NEXT TWO DAYS.THE WEST HAS BEEN SCAMED AND THE 20 FREESCALE NUKE DEFENCE WORKERS ARE BEING INTERIGATED RIGHT NOW FOR THEIR DEFENCE SECRETS.I PRAY I AM WRONG HERE.BECAUSE I CAN NOT EVEN FIGURE OUT HOW THE WEST COULD POSSIBLY SAVE THE KIDNAPPED FREESCALE WORKERS.AND BEING THESE FREESCALE WORKERS WERE FROM AUSTIN TEXAS.A WESTERN COUNTRY-THIS EVEN MAKES THE DECEPTION EVEN MORE SWEETER FOR WHATEVER ISRAEL-WEST HATING ISLAMIC--ARAB-MUSLIM-COMMUNIST COUNTRY DONE THIS.

Revealed: the final 54 minutes of communication from MH370-The entire 54 minutes of cockpit communication aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight can be revealed, from its taxi on the runway to its final message at 1.07am of 'all right, good night'-By Jonathan Pearlman and Adam Wu in Kuala Lumpur-5:00PM GMT 21 Mar 2014
The last 54 minutes of cockpit communication aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 can be revealed today by the Telegraph.

A transcript of conversations between the co-pilot and the control tower, and later with air traffic control, runs from the time the Boeing 777 airliner was taxiing on the runway to its last known position thousands of feet above the Gulf of Thailand.

It includes communications when the plane is believed by investigators to have already been sabotaged and the last words of Fariq Abdul Hamid, the 27-year-old co-pilot: “All right, good night”.

Last night analysts said the sequence of messages appeared to be “perfectly routine”.

However two features, they said, stand out as potentially odd.

The first was a message delivered by the cockpit at 1.07am, saying that the plane was flying at a cruising altitude of 35,000 feet. This message was unnecessary as it repeated a call that had already been delivered six minutes earlier.

But this message occurred at a crucial moment in the plane’s flight history: it was at 1.07am that the plane’s ACARS signalling device sent its last message before being disabled during the next 30 minutes, apparently deliberately. A transponder signalling device was disabled at 1.21am but investigators believe the ACARS was shut down before Hamid’s final farewell message.

The other odd feature, which is one of the reasons for suspicions that the plane’s disappearance was deliberate, was that its loss of communications and subsequent sharp turn westward occurred during the handover from air traffic controllers in Kuala Lumpur to those in Ho Chi Minh City.

“If I was going to steal the aeroplane, that would be the point I would do it,” said Stephen Buzdygan, a former British Airways pilot who piloted Boeing 777s.

“There might be a bit of dead space between the air traffic controllers… It was the only time during the flight they would maybe not have been able to be seen from the ground.”

The fresh details of the communications add to the speculation over of the fate of MH370 - whether it was the victim of a sudden accident or a hijacking; the transcript also suggests that if the pilots were involved in a plot they were very careful to hide their true intentions.

Last night, dozens of ships and aircraft were still involved in a painstaking search of an area off the Australian coast where debris potentially from MH370 was spotted by a spy satellite earlier this week.

Malaysia has begun appealing to the handful of nations with deep sea detection equipment for help in what may be a long search for the aircraft’s black box. The area of interest spans 9,000 square miles across waters that are up to 13,000 feet deep.

Warren Truss, Australia’s deputy prime minister, acknowledged that the apparent debris may now never be found because of the area’s deep waters and strong currents.

“Something that was floating on the sea that long ago may no longer be floating,” he said. “ It’s also certain that any debris or other material would have moved a significant distance over that time, potentially hundreds of kilometres.”

Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysia’s acting transport minister, said the search was proving frustrating and cautioned that “this is going to be a long haul”.

“We have to trench down and the focus is to reduce the area of search and possible rescue,” he said.

Malaysia Airlines revealed yesterday that the aircraft was carrying some lithium ion batteries, which are deemed “dangerous” cargo and can overheat and cause fires. But Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, the airlines head, said the batteries – used in laptops and mobile phones - were packed and carried in accordance with regulations and were unlikely to have posed a threat.

Mr Ahmad Jauhari has previously revealed that Hamid, the co-pilot, spoke the final message on the plane but yesterday would not comment on whether he appeared to be under duress.

According to the cockpit transcripts, from the moment of sign-in at 12.36 when the plane was still on the ground, Hamid, a 27-year-old flying enthusiast, gave routine accounts of the plane’s location, ascent and altitude. Though he took a slightly casual approach and at times departed from formal wording, nothing in his banter gives any sign that the plane was about to fly off course and disappear.

"The communication up until the plane went to the changeover [to Vietnam] sounds totally normal,” Mr Buzdygan said. “That kind of banter – I’ve done it hundreds of times. It is perfectly normal.”

Steve Landells, a former British Airways pilot who flew Boeing 777s, gave his assessment of the aparent anomoly of the repeated messages from plane when setlign at 35,000. He said a second message was not required but he did not regard it as suspicious.

“It could be as simple as the pilot forgetting or not being sure that he had told air traffic controllers he had reached the altitude,” he said. “He might be reconfirming he was at 350 [35,000 feet]. It is not unusual. I wouldn’t read anything into it.”

The Telegraph has repeatedly asked Malaysia Airlines, Malaysia’s Civil Aviation Authority and the office of Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak to confirm the communications record; only the prime minister’s office responded, saying it would not release this data.

Best lead' in plane search: 2 objects seen in sea-By SCOTT MCDONALD and KRISTEN GELINEAU -MAR 21,14-Yahoonews

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Search planes joined a freighter early Friday to scan rough seas in one of the remotest places on Earth after satellite images detected possible pieces from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane in the southern Indian Ocean.In what officials called the "best lead" of the nearly 2-week-old aviation mystery, a satellite detected two large objects floating about 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) off the southwestern coast of Australia and halfway to the desolate islands of the Antarctic. The area is so remote is takes aircraft longer to fly there — four hours — than it does for the search.The development raised new hope of finding the vanished jet and sent another emotional jolt to the families of the 239 people aboard.Australian authorities said in a statement early Friday that the search had turned up nothing so far. Efforts were resuming with the first of five aircraft — a Royal Australian Air Force P3 Orion — leaving the base in Western Australia for the search around dawn. A civilian Gulfstream jet and a second Orion were expected to depart later Friday morning and a third Orion was due to fly out in the early afternoon to scour more than 13,000 square miles (35,000 square kilometers) of ocean.A U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon aircraft was scheduled to leave the base at about 4 p.m. (0600 GMT), but like the other planes, it will have enough fuel for only a few hours before returning to Perth."It is a very long journey to the site and unfortunately, aircraft can only have one or two hours over the search area before they need to return to the mainland for fuel," Warren Truss, who is currently Australia's acting prime minister while Tony Abbott is overseas, told Australian Broadcasting Corp. He said that weather conditions in the area were poor and may get worse."And so clearly this is a very, very difficult and challenging search. Weather conditions are not particularly good and risk that they may deteriorate," Truss said.One of the objects on the satellite image was 24 meters (almost 80 feet) long and the other was 5 meters (15 feet). There could be other objects in the area, a four-hour flight from Australia, said John Young, manager of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority's emergency response division."This is a lead, it's probably the best lead we have right now," Young said. He cautioned that the objects could be seaborne debris along a shipping route where containers can fall off cargo vessels, although the larger object is longer than a container.Truss said officials were working to get more satellite images and stronger resolution to help searchers get a better sense of where the objects are and how far they've shifted since the initial images were captured. "They will have moved because of tides and wind and the like, so the search area is quite broad," Truss said, adding that marker buoys were dropped to help get a better understanding of what drift is likely to have occurred.The Norwegian cargo vessel Hoegh St. Petersburg, with a Filipino crew of 20, arrived in the area and used searchlights after dark to look for debris. It will continue the search Friday, said Ingar Skiaker of Hoegh Autoliners, speaking to reporters in Oslo.The Norwegian ship, which transports cars, was on its way from South Africa to Australia, he said. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said another commercial ship and an Australian navy vessel were also en route to the search area.

Satellite imagery experts said the lead is worth investigating.

"It would be very nice if you could see a whole wing floating there, then you could say, 'OK that's an airplane,'" said Sean O'Connor, an imagery analyst with IHS Jane's. In the case of these satellite images, "you can't tell what it is" so closer examination is critical.Another analyst said the debris is most likely not pieces of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. There have been several false leads since the Boeing 777 disappeared March 8 above the Gulf of Thailand en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing."The chances of it being debris from the airplane are probably small, and the chances of it being debris from other shipping are probably large," said Jason Middleton, an aviation professor at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.The development marked a new phase for the anguished relatives of the passengers, who have been critical of Malaysian officials for what the relatives say has been the slow release of timely information. While they still hope their loved ones will somehow be found, they acknowledged that news of the satellite images could mean the plane fell into the sea."If it turns out that it is truly MH370, then we will accept that fate," said Selamat Bin Omar, the father of a Malaysian passenger. The jet carried mostly Chinese and Malaysian nationals.But he cautioned that relatives still "do not yet know for sure whether this is indeed MH370 or something else. Therefore, we are still waiting for further notice from the Australian government. "Malaysian officials met with the relatives Thursday night in a hotel near Kuala Lumpur, but journalists were kept away. After the meeting, groups of people left looking distraught.Hamid Amran, who had a child on Flight 370, said questions asked at the meeting made it "apparent that Malaysia's military is incapable of protecting its own airspace."He believes "that my child and all the other passengers are still alive. I will not give up hope."Malaysian Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said the relatives in Kuala Lumpur were being given updates by high-level officials "two or three times a day.""We do take care of the next of kin," he said, adding that if the debris is located "close to Australia, we will obviously make arrangements to fly the next of kin there."A group of Malaysian government and airline officials flew Thursday night to Beijing to meet families there.Young said the ocean in the search area is thousands of meters (feet) deep. DigitalGlobe, a Longmont, Colo.-based company, said it provided the images to Australian officials. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority released two images of the whitish objects. They were taken March 16, but Australian Air Commodore John McGarry said it took time to analyze them."The task of analyzing imagery is quite difficult, it requires drawing down frames and going through frame by frame," he said.The hunt has encountered other false leads. Oil slicks that were seen did not contain jet fuel. A yellow object thought to be from the plane turned out to be sea trash. Chinese satellite images showed possible debris, but nothing was found.But this is the first time that possible objects have been spotted since the search area was massively expanded into two corridors, one stretching from northern Thailand into Central Asia and the other from the Strait of Malacca to the southern Indian Ocean.Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein made it clear Thursday that although international search efforts are continuing both on land and in sea in the northern and southern hemispheres, the effort is mostly concentrated south of the equator over the vast Indian Ocean.Malaysian authorities have not ruled out any possible explanation for what happened to the jet, but have said the evidence so far suggests it was deliberately turned back across Malaysia to the Strait of Malacca, with its communications systems disabled. They are unsure what happened next.Police are considering the possibility of hijacking, sabotage, terrorism or issues related to the mental health of the pilots or anyone else on board.___Gelineau reported from Sydney, Australia.
