MEMBERS OF THE FAMILES OF THE DEAD ARE SAYING THAT THEY TRY TO PHONE THEIR LOVED ONES AND THE PHONES ACTUALLY RING.WHAT AN EARTH.HOW COULD THE PHONES ACTUALLY RING YET IF THE PHONES ARE EXPOSED TO WATER.I GUESS THE CELL PHONES THESE DAYS ARE WATER PROOF.OR THE CRASHED PLANE NEVER WENT IN THE OCEAN AND WENT ON LAND SONEWHERE INSTEAD.THIS PHONE STUFF MIGHT BE A GREAT LEAD THAT THE PLANE NEVER FELL IN THE OCEAN BUT FELL ON LAND SOMEWHERE.AND SOME CONSPIRACY THEORISTS ARE EVEN SAYING THAT CHINA BROUGHT THE PLANE DOWN ON PURPOSE AND HAVE HID THE PLANE IN AN UNDERGROUND BUNKER AND ARE CURRENTLY INTERIGATING THE 20 MICROCHIP IMPLANT WORKERS FROM FREESCALE TO GET THE INFO FROM THESE ENGENEERS.THIS IS THE WORST REDICULAS MOST NUTCASE CONSPIRACY THEORY I HAVE HEARD YET.
THE MISSING PLANE MH370 SITUATION AT 11:55AM TUE MAR 11,2014
HERES MY LATEST CONSPIRACY.THAT THE PLANE WAS SHOT OUT OF THE AIR AS NATO CAN DO IN THIS PRACTISE RUN AGAINST PIRATES.AT LEAST MY MISSLE SHOOT DOWN IS A PLAUSIBLE CONSPIRACY THEORY.TERRORISTS COULD BUY A SHIP AND DOWN PLANES SINCE NATO CAN DO IT IN THIS DRILL VIDEO.
Terror group Chinese Martyrs Brigade claims missing flight was ‘payback’, officials label it hoax-March 11, 2014 9:07AM-NEWS.COMAU A SHADOWY group called the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade claimed responsibility for the disappearance of Flight MH370 — but officials were sceptical and said the claim could be a hoax.The group — unheard of before now — on Sunday sent an email to journalists across China that read: “You kill one of our clan, we will kill 100 of you as pay back,” but the message provided no details of what brought the flight down. Malaysian Defense Minister Hishamuddin Hussein told reporters he doubted the claim’s legitimacy.“There is no sound or credible grounds to justify their claims,” he said, according to Malaysian news reports.Other officials said the claim could be a hoax aimed at increasing ethnic tensions between Uighurs and Han Chinese in the wake of the March 1 knife attacks in the south-western city of Kunming that left 29 people dead and about 140 others injured.The message was delivered through an encrypted, anonymous Hushmail service that is virtually impossible to trace, they said.
THE MISSING PLANE MH370 SITUATION AT 03:15PAM TUE MAR 11,2014
NOW WE FIND OUT THE PLANE WAS WAY OFF COURSE THEN IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN.THE PLANE WAS ON IT WAY TO CHINA-THEN SUDDENLY VIRTUALLY DONE A U-TURN AND HEADED INTO THE STRAIT OF MALACCA.WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND THE GPS SYSTEMS.THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS SHOULD HAVE NOTICED SIGNS OF DISTURBANCES.THIS SMELLS LIKE A TERRORIST ATTACK ON BOARD.AND WHEN THEY GOT TO THE MALACCA AREA-THE TERRORISTS DECIDED TO DIE IN THE NAME OF ALLAH FOR 72 VIRGINS AND DECIDED TO BLOW THE PLANE AND KILL ALL THE PEOPLE INSTEAD OF JUST HIJACKING IT AND TAKING IT SOMEWHERE.
THE 4 SINERIOS THAT COULD HAVE OCCURRED.
1-THE PILOT COULD HAVE TURNED OFF THE TRANSPONDERS AND GPS AND TOOK THE PLANE OFF COURSE.OR
2-TERRORISTS (THE 2 OR MORE) COULD HAVE HIJACKED THE PLANE AND FORCED THE PILOT TO THE STRAITS OF MALACCA.OR
3-THE PLANE HAD A COMPLETE WIRE FAILURE AND PILOT GOT DISORIENTED AND THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TOWARD CHINA AND HE WAS GOING TOWARD THE STRAIT OF MALACCA INSTEAD.AND THE PLANE ENDED UP IN THE SEA.
4-OR THE PLANES DOOR OR SOME KIND OF BREAKUP OCCURRED WERE EVERYTHING STARTED GETTING SUCKED OUT THE OPEN SPACE AND EVERY BODY STARTED PASSING OUT.BUT BEFORE THE PILOT AND CO-PILOT PASSED OUT.THEY WERE TRYING TO GO NEAR A LANDING SPACE WITH THE U-TURN TO THE STRAIT OF MALACCA.WHICH WOULD MEAN THAT THE WIRES AND SYSTEMS WOULD STILL BE WORKING AND THE ONTROLLERS IN THAT AREA SHOULD HAVE SPOTTED THE PLANE ON THEIR RADARS. THEN THE PILOTS PASSED OUT COMPLETELY AND THE PLANE ENDED UP IN THE SEA SOMEWHERE IN THE AREA.SOMETHING DOES NOT MAKE SENSE IN THIS WHOLE SITUATION.I THINK THERES MORE TO IT THEN WE ARE BEING TOLD.THINGS JUST DO NOT ADD UP HERE OVERALL.

FLIGHTWARE-LIVE FLIGHT TRACKING
Man with stolen passport on jet is asylum seeker
By CHRIS BRUMMITT and MINH V. TRANH MAR 11,14-Yahoonews
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — One of the two men traveling on a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner with a stolen passport was a 19-year-old Iranian man believed to be trying to migrate to Germany, and had no terror links, police said Tuesday.The announcement was the first certain piece of news in what has become a baffling mystery over the fate of flight MH370. On Tuesday, baffled authorities expanded their search for the Boeing 777 on the opposite side of the country's coast from where it disappeared days ago with 239 people on board.In the absence of any sign that the plane was in trouble before it vanished, speculation has ranged widely, including pilot error, plane malfunction, hijacking and terrorism, the last because two passengers were traveling on stolen passports. The terrorism theory weakened after Malaysian authorities determined that one of them was an Iranian asylum seeker.Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters the 19-year-old was believed to be planning to enter Germany to seek asylum."We believe he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group," Khalid said. He added that the young man's mother was waiting for him in Frankfurt and had been in contact with the police. He said she contacted Malaysian authorities to inform them of her concern when her son didn't get in touch with her.Khalid said the other man traveling with the Iranian had arrived in Malaysia on the same day, and had yet to be identified. He said investigators had not ruled out any possibility, including hijacking, sabotage or a personal motive to down the plane by either the crew or passengers. He also said that the police " had no prior information or intelligence about any involvement of terrorists,"The plane took off from Kuala Lumpur, on the western coast of Malaysia, early Saturday en route to Beijing. It flew overland across Malaysia and crossed the eastern coast into the Gulf of Thailand at 35,000 feet (11,000 meters). There it disappeared from radar screens. The airline says the pilots didn't send any distress signals, suggesting a sudden and possibly catastrophic incident.In a statement, Malaysia Airlines said search and rescue teams "have expanded the scope beyond the flight path to the West Peninsula of Malaysia at the Straits of Malacca." An earlier statement had said the western coast of Malaysia was "now the focus," but the airline subsequently said that phrase was an oversight."The search is on both sides," Civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said, adding that the previous statement didn't mean that the plane was more like to be off the western coast.
The new statement said authorities are looking at a possibility that MH370 attempted to turn back toward Kuala Lumpur. If it did indeed retrace its path, the plane could conceivably have crashed into the sea on the western coast, the other side of Malaysia from where it was reported missing. But this doesn't explain why it did not continue to show on radar while flying back toward Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia Airlines or other authorities have not addressed that question."All angles are being looked at. We are not ruling out any possibilities," is all that the Malaysia Airlines statement said.Malaysia's air force chief also said Sunday there were indications on military radar that the jet may have done a U-turn.Over the last three days the search mission has grown to include nine aircraft and 24 ships from nine countries, which have been scouring the Gulf of Thailand on the eastern side of Malaysia. Apart from the sea, land areas are also being searched. China, where two-thirds of the passengers were from, has urged Malaysian authorities to "speed up the efforts" while also contributing ships and helicopters to the search.A shopping mall in Beijing suspended advertising on its large outdoor LED screen to display a search timer — an image of an airplane along with a digital clock marking the time since contact with the flight was lost.Authorities questioned travel agents Monday at a beach resort in Thailand who police say were involved in handling reservations and issuing tickets used by the Iranian asylum seeker and his companion. Both men had both booked onward flights to Europe, and were traveling on stolen passports of an Italian and an Austrian. Assuming the plane crashed into the ocean or disintegrated in midair, there will likely still be debris floating on the ocean, but it may be widely spaced out and the bulk of it may have already sunk.
The United States has sent two navy ships, at least one of which is equipped with helicopters, and a Navy P-3C Orion plane that onboard sensors allow the crew to clearly detect small debris in the water. It said in a statement that the Malaysian government had done "tremendous job" organizing the land and sea effort.The hunt began on Saturday morning at the point the plane was last known to be. But with no debris found, the search has been systematically expanded to include areas where the plane could have in theory ended up given the amount of fuel it had on board. That is an area many thousands of square kilometers (miles) wide.Vietnamese planes and ships are a major component of the international search and rescue effort.Lt. Gen. Vo Van Tuan, deputy chief of staff of Vietnamese People's Army, said authorities on land had also been ordered to search for the plane, which could have crashed into mountains or uninhabited jungle. He said that military units near the border with Laos and Cambodia had been instructed to search their regions also."So far we have found no signs (of the plane) ... so we must widen our search on land," he said.
Search for missing Malaysian plane goes high tech
18:38 10 March 2014 by Paul Marks
Nine nations have joined the attempt to find the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 that disappeared with 239 people on board on a midnight flight out of Kuala Lumpur on Friday. The operation now involves 34 aircraft, 40 ships and a battery of search and rescue technologies.Coordinated by Malaysian authorities from a control centre in Kuala Lumpur, the nations contributing to the search for flight MH370 include Vietnam, France, Indonesia, Australia, China and the United States. There were 154 Chinese nationals on the missing flight, and the country has so far contributed four warships, a coastguard cutter and three search-and-rescue ships. More are said to be on the way.The US has flown a Lockheed Martin P-3C long-range search aircraft from its base in Okinawa, Japan, to Kuala Lumpur to undertake 10-hour nonstop search missions.And the USS Pinckney, a guided missile destroyer, has steamed into the Gulf of Thailand so that its two Sikorsky MH-60 Seahawk helicopters can be used to get close to any suspect wreckage spotted by other search vessels or aircraft. Their infrared cameras can be used to continue the search at night.
Just a crate
"The P-3C and the MH-60 have surface search radar with a range of 5000 to 10,000 feet that can look down and pick up pretty small objects, even non-metallic ones, and down to basketball size," says William Marks, a US Navy commander on the USS Blue Ridge, which is coordinating the US search contribution. "Then the crew will use high zoom cameras to zoom in and check it out. Yesterday, for instance, we found something that looked interesting but it was just a wooden crate."The searchers are also listening out for flight MH370's 406 megahertz Emergency Locator Transmitter, a unit that separates from aircraft wreckage and floats when it is immersed in saltwater. "That floating radio beacon can be picked up by a number of the aircraft on this search, including the P-3C and MH-60s," says Marks.In addition, the 777's cockpit voice and flight data recorders – the "black boxes" – each include a "pinger", an ultrasonic acoustic transmitter that, for up to 30 days after submersion, can be picked up by ship or submarine sonar receivers, allowing them to home in on the source.Alternatively, aircraft can drop "sonobuoys" – floating devices that listen underwater and transmit what they detect via a radio antenna above the water.
The disappearance of the Malaysian aircraft mirrors strongly that of Air France flight 447, another packed airliner on a midnight flight over the ocean. The Air France flight vanished from radar screens an hour or so after take off from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, on 1 June 2009. It crashed in waters 4 kilometres deep in the Atlantic's abyssal plain so was difficult to locate. If the Malaysian jet has gone down, it is likely to be in waters just 100 metres deep, so should be a lot easier to find.So far however, three days after the loss of Malaysia Airlines flight MH730, no verifiable wreckage has been found. China, with so many citizens on the flight and facing pressure from increasingly distraught relatives, is today urging Malaysia to redouble its efforts to find the plane. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang says Malaysia needs to "provide relevant information to China correctly and in a timely manner".Theories about the Boeing 777's fate are rebounding around mainstream and social media, with terrorism top of the list. But that was also the case with AF447 in 2009. "Two names on doomed Air France Flight 447's passenger list also appear on a list of radical muslims," said the Fox News network on 10 June 2009.
But the Air France flight was crashed into the sea not by terrorists but by a crew who managed to stall the aircraft in a storm after apparently believing the autoflight computers – which were disengaged at the time – would prevent a stall.The alleged terror link for flight MH370 hinges on the fact that at least two passengers on the Malaysian jet were flying with stolen passports. But this is not uncommon: in another air tragedy in 2010 an Air India Express flight crashed in Mangalore, India, killing 158 people. It later emerged that 10 of the passengers were using fake passports .Indeed, Malaysia Airlines itself was fined in 2012 for allowing a passenger barred from New Zealand to fly to that country – by entering a different passport number at check in. And it was fined for similar reasons in 2007, says the South China Morning Post.All that is known is that the missing flight is thought to have undergone "a steep and sudden descent" and changed its heading, according to an summary of the incident on the Aviation Herald website .Whether that was due to terrorism, a cockpit emergency such as a fire that prevented a mayday being broadcast, a sudden, catastrophic break-up of the airplane, or some kind of pilot error, can only be ascertained from the flight recorders.
