    Malaysia airlines plane may have crashed 239 people on board #13

    Breaking news

    Malaysia Airlines says it has lost contact with a plane travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board.

    The airline said in a statement that flight MH370 disappeared at 02:40 local time on Saturday (18:40 GMT on Friday).

    I'm praying the plane is found and people on the plane survive.

    The moderators have been wading in a pool of alerts this morning - and most are coming from this forum. I wanted to review some of the issues that happened yesterday because if the issues continue, some of our members are going to find themselves on the outside looking in.

    - Discuss the topic and not each other. If you have a problem with a fellow poster, alert via the little red triangle in the upper corner of the post and the mods will review privately

    - Limit the one liners. A little humor while waiting is okay, but when it goes on and on then it falls into being "off topic" which is a forum violation. And make sure you're not poking fun at this tragedy. Not funny.

    - The political comments need to go in the Political Pavilion. Also, while it's a good thing to be proud of your own country, it's not good to make fun of other countries. Websleuths is an international community and we think each person is just as important as the next. We are proud to have all of you as members.

    If you have any questions, don't be afraid to privately contact the moderator of your choice. First you might want to review our Rules forum. Your answer can probably be found there --->The Rules - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    Awwww thank you! I love what you did there! Sometimes it's easy to dehumanize the people on the flight, almost lumping them into one entity. But they all are loved individuals and have family that are devastated and would move the world to rescue them.

    Washington post article re: the satellite imagery.

    And I just wanted to post this that I caught - if you look at the top of the page with the two satellite images on it, it says "UNCLASSIFIED" in red letters.

    So most likely there is a CLASSIFIED out there which is the very detailed image.

    What missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has taught us about the world

    WE’VE investigated the theories, searched thousands of square miles and pondered every possible scenario; even Courtney Love is on the case.

    While we still don’t know exactly what happened to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, the search has revealed some surprising facts about the world around us.

    Here’s what we’ve discovered.

    Hi all, I'm here for the arvo (slow day at work).

    I'm a little disappointed that we don't have any more info on the debris yet, but I understand how hard it would be to find debris way out in the middle of the ocean, when it's being moved around quite a bit by the currents and the weather.

    And like others, I'm not putting much stock into the pilot's phone call. I don't see this as all that unusual, unless the media can give me any credible info as to why I should. I don't trust their interpretation of the phone call as mysterious - we all know how they like to play with the 'truth'.

    BBM - And isn't that pretty damn scary. I never would have thought it possible, until it actually happened.

    BBM I heard it described by someone that it's like finding a needle in a haystack, but they haven't even found the haystack.

    From the previous thread...

    The Zombie plane thing is bad... but these are reporters in another country from the crisis.
    What the person in Malaysia who is in charge of giving us information says, is far more important.

    He told another, “If you don’t fall off my radar, you may get to ask a question.”

It is a new generation now though but he believes the pilot had a huge hard drive because he had three screens and the simulator looks professional. Just sharing one person's reaction and I'm trying to recall if I've ever seen his jaw drop before!

    Later on TV, many opinions were being expressed that the pilot may have needed to clear room on his hard drive, that it isn't unusual to delete simulator history, etc. But, my husband's jaw dropped upon hearing that report.
    Captain Shah allowed kids to play on his flight simulator.
    Perhaps he deleted THOSE files and only kept his own?
    Also, one report said he deleted GAMES... so perhaps the games he didn't use anymore.

    Captain Shah's simulator is not "professional"... it is a few computer screens.
    It was likely put together for less than $5,000 and he enjoyed teaching kids to fly on it.

    Other pilots actually have the cockpit from a real plane turned into a simulator and spend $50,000.

    Wow! That's so interesting. I've learnt so much through all of this.

    I think it's going to be a very long while until we find anything substantial. It seems like trying to find a giant needle in an even bigger haystack - although, in the grand scheme of things, trying to find one tiny plane in our giant world seems like a HUGE task. Even if they DO find the debris that was sighted on satellite, and it IS the missing plane, there's no guarantee they're going to be able to find the rest of it, black box included.

    I just want answers. As I imagine the rest of the world does, too. Especially the families - I can't even imagine how they are all feeling, not knowing where their loved ones are or even what happened to them. It's like being stuck in limbo.
