    Flight 370: brainstorm: Theories only

    Forbes Asia - Malaysia Airlines 370 in Central Asia?



    Keith Ledgerwood
    Did Malaysian Airlines 370 disappear using SIA68/SQ68 (another 777)?
    Questions/Answers Follow-Up #1 - How Did Malaysian Airlines 370 disappear using SIA68/SQ68?

    “I’m sure: MH370 escaped in the shadow of another plane” retired Air Force Colonel says

    Blog below explains why it wouldn't work. I was also reading the game sim forum; people there said there is no way there was enough fuel.

    Ask the pilot - Theories and topics discussed in these updates include: transponders, cell phones, the Singapore Airlines radar theory, onboard fire or fumes theory, hijacking and plane-as-a-weapon theories, and more… 3/18/14
    THEORY OF THE DAY: The radar ruse. I’m talking about this post, by an aviation enthusiast named Keith Ledgerwood. His hypothesis is that the missing Malaysia Airlines jet had tucked up underneath a Singapore Airlines 777, causing the two planes’ radar signatures to appear as one. Thus disguised, the Malaysia jet flew on, undetected for hours before eventually breaking off and landing at an airfield in…? It fails to offer any explanation as to how, once separating from the Singapore flight, the Malaysia jet could have completed its secret diversion without being seen

    Brainstorm and discuss various theories you have read about on the web or elsewhere, that you put stock in or believe are credible...

    Still thinking this plane was hijacked but it was not a test run. Most everything else seems to point away from heading in that southern 'arc' also. I just can't see why it would be out there. I might change my mind if they gave some account of the radar (paths, arcs, etc.) that made sense... and I don't think there was any emergency on the plane, e.g., fire, etc. I don't really have a solid feeling about why it was hijacked, could be the passengers/crew or cargo or for later use.

    Some tinfoil theories discussed briefly in this MSM article:
    http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/malaysia-ai...loyees-1440097

    The conclusion is (generally) that they DID work with relevant and advanced (eg. military) aeronautical manufacturing, but how that ties in with this case is anyone's guess at this point as supposedly all passengers and crew have been thoroughly background checked, too. The options are too varied--hijackers? kidnapped for technical know-how? totally irrelevant coincidence? We don't know at this point.

    Here's my rough theory:

    Plane was hijacked; taken to Pakistan for future use (possibly at upcoming Nuclear Summit). Passengers may or may not be alive; if alive, will be used for terrorism demands or purposes


    Puzzle pcs that 'fit' this theory:

    • no explosions seen from satellite; NO crash debris or remains yet found except 2 unlikely & as yet unconfirmed satellite images hundreds of miles off last radar tracking, SW of Australia

    • radar tracking AND ping arcs BOTH support heading to either Diego Garcia AFB or Pakistan. I'm more inclined to think Pakistan/Kazakhstan; just can't swallow idea of false flag and my USA being involved.

    • 2 Iranians with fake passports; Malaysia Airlines released photos of them, purposely cutting off one at the hips--what were they trying to hide? Also these men were originally described as Chinese and other descriptors not fitting with the photos they had of them.

    • recent trial related to bin Laden where informant told of Afghan training camp where given a shoe bomb to give to 5 Maylasians who wanted to 'blow up a cockpit door' with it

    • purposeful, staggered disconnection of communications by someone familiar with Boeing 777s and advanced avaiation/military flying maneuvers so as to avoid commercial radar and military radar EXCEPT Malaysia's. (Though I don't believe the 2 original pilots were willing participants, I'm less inclined to believe Malaysia had no involvement; I also can see them setting up the pilots to be scapegoats--the captain was on the 'opposition' side of the current, corrupt gov't. The government also OWNS the airport; control factor there important to pull this off.)

    • 12 Maylasians on the plane from Freescale who would have experience with advanced technology related to aviation and radar-blocking, cellphone 'sleep' devices, and possibly one with even flying experience

    • Malaysian gov't in general acting in untrustworthy, shady manner:

    - allowing Iranians with fake passports (and possibly shoe bombs) on plane
    - not acting on military radar infiltration
    - from the outset, delaying divulging of essential info
    - repeatedly backtracking and changing their accounts, including concerning the copilot being the "voice heard" at the last transmission

    • upcoming 2-yr anniversary of bin Laden's death

    • upcoming Nuclear Summit at The Hague (Mar 24)

    • Israel (with best intell in world) has tightened security after announcement the transponder was purposefully turned off in two steps


    (More to come as time permits)

    I'm putting together a detailed FAQ for MH370 - Here is what I have so far... I'm missed heaps of significant things (timeline for instance I can see now!)... Please PM me anything you think would be useful to add and I shal do so before I post it in the appropriate FAQ thread in an hr or two...

    Malaysian Airlines MH370 Incident FAQ

    The following questions and theory’s have been asked and addressed in regards to the events, possible theory’s and currently confirmed facts that are known about the mystery of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 from Kualar Lumpar, Malaysia to Beijing, China.

    Technical Facts (Aircraft information, capabilities and systems relevant to the case explained)

    What type of aircraft was involved?
    What was the aircrafts Civil Aviation registration number?
    Is there a picture of the ACTUAL plane that disappeared as MH370?
    How many engines did it have and what type?
    What is the Service Ceiling of this type of aircraft?
    What is the relevant airspeeds for operations of this aircraft?
    What is ACARS?
    What is FMC?
    What is a “transponder”?
    What reason would there be for an aircrew to turn a transponder of? Why don’t they just keep them on at all times?
    What is this “Ping” they keep talking about with the engines?
    The last radio call, “All right, goodnight” – is that significant or suspect in regards to aircraft radio communications protocol?
    What is “Autopilot” and what are its limitations?
    What are the qualifications and professional backgrounds of the aircrew who were in control of MH370?
    What is Hypoxia?
    What are the facts of decompression and how would this effect the possible timeline of events on MH370?
    They have mentioned that MH370 had potentially dangerous batteries on board, what is the significance of this?
    What security measures does Malaysian Airlines employ in regards to boarding flights and cockpit entry aboard their aircraft, including MH370?
    What is a flight simulator?
    The captain had one at his house, isn’t that very suspicious?
    How could it have been used to plan the MH370 incident?


    The People:
    How many people were aboard MH370?
    What nationalities were they?
    These Iranians travelling on stolen passports… what’s the go?
    Has everyone on board MH370 been checked and cleared for criminal history, terrorism links or specialist military or government jobs that may make them noteworthy or a potential target?
    I have heard that there were 20 people on board who worked for a specialist military chip company – tell me more!
    I heard that passenger 84 was kept secret and had his name hidden from the manifest, why?
    I heard that there was some nutty professor on board the aircraft who had flight training and specialised in some pretty scary things when it comes to making aircraft disappear.. is this true?

    The Theories (and relevant facts that either prove or disprove their feasbality):

    The aircraft was HiJacked by terrorists…
    The aircraft was HiJacked by a state sponsored intelligence agency or organisation in a military style operation…
    An allied missile shot it down by accident and they are doing another TAA style coverup…
    The Flight Crew themselves were involved or orchestrated the whole thing…
    One of the two pilots went rouge and “pilot suicide” is the answer…
    There was a fire on board and the crew were trying to save the aircraft and return to a nearby capable airport, however they became incapacitated before they could successfully land the aircraft and it continued to fly out to sea on the heading last set until it ran out of fuel…
    There was a Hypoxia event on board related to a decompression event
    There was a bomb on board…
    There was biological weapons on board…
    The aircraft has been stolen by terrorists with a well executed mission that evaded ground based radar systems by terrain masking and shadowed beneath a Singapore Airlines 777 too sneak through the airspace without detection...
    (1) It has landed in “****stan” and the passengers are being used as leverage in a secret negotiation process that th government is not admitting… (and/or)
    (2) The aircraft is being loaded up with nuclear weapons or radioactive waste or biological weapons and will be used in a future terrorism attack…
    The captain’s passionate support of the opposition governemt and the recent trial of the head of this political party lead to him seek retribution by orchestrating this incident with the purpose of making the government of Malaysia look stupid and expose the corruption and injustices that he felt have occurred to the world. His experience and knowledge of regional civilian and military radar coverage and capability’s allowed him show up David Copperfield as an amature by making this aircraft effectively vanish off the face of the earth. The simulator in his home allowed him to practice this….
    The aircraft was hijacked by remote control, either by a person on board using the PlainSploit App that was described at a technology and security forum in April last year, or by an electronic warefare aircraft that was capable of this. (and the conclusions too each)
    The aircraft suffered some kind of toxic atmosphere incident that took over the entire pressurized area (where passengers and flight crew are) of the aircraft. Life was unsupportable and everyone aboard MH370 was dead within the first 2hrs of the flight – Malaysian Authority’s knew this before the plane had even crossed back over the peninsula and their sheer lack of preparedness and rescources to deal with such an event has lead to them covering this up and delaying search efforts in the hope that evidence will over time become either impossible to find or subject to exposure that will deem it inconclusive or gone all together…

    Why to take the McInerney "Plane is in Pakistan" theory with a grain of salt:

    Retired US Air Force General McInerney has appeared repeatedly on FoxNews to argue his theory that the plane was hijacked to Pakistan. Much of what he had to say is misleading, and often outright false.

    March 18 McInerney on Fox:

    For whatever reason, they apparently had put more fuel into it.
    No, there's no evidence MH-370 took on extra fuel in Kuala Lumpur.

    the report from Boeing saying they believe the airplane was in Pakistan
    FALSE. Rumor was debunked by Boeing itself:

    A LIGNET analyst received information from a source at Boeing that the company believes the plane did land in Pakistan… Boeing spokesman Sean McCormack denied that Wednesday, telling LIGNET that “the Boeing Company does not have information that substantiates your claim.”
    McInerney: I suspect we may in the next 24 to 48 hours start hearing from either the Malaysian government or the Pakistani government.
    NOPE. 24 to 48 hours passed and no government stepped forward to say the plane was in Pakistan.

    when the U.S. Navy quits their search, their ship search, they must know something in the Indian Ocean. When the Israeli defense forces, when they increase their air defense alert, they must know something.
    NOPE. US Navy destroyer Kidd stopped searching Northern Indian Ocean because the satellite info said the plane wasn't there. Israel went on alert as a normal precaution to possible terrorist activity. No proof of anything.

    And I believe both pilots may have been complicit...they had communications that they listening to what was going on and, I think, probably transmitting to the location they were going to.
    Huh?! So the pilots were radioing their accomplices on a landing strip but no one else could hear the transmissions? Seriously?

    March 19 McInerney on Fox:

    I did find out that the distance from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and the distance from Kuala Lumpur to Pakistan, Lahore, is the same distance, roughly 2,700 miles.
    Proves zilch. Draw a circle 2,700 miles from Kuala Lumpur, and MH-370's fuel could have taken it to any point on it.

    What top-notch sources did McInerney consult to calculate his theories?

    Correct, and so I did some computations on my iPhone with Siri,
    Um, yeah.

    it went into either Pakistan or Eastern Iran. I don't -- cannot confirm that.
    Um, yeah.

    I haven't seen any data that corroborates that they went south.
    Nor is there any data to corroborate they went north! Come on!

    March 20 McInerney on Fox:

    And I've listened to a lot of aviation experts, and none of them know anything about radical Islam.
    How many have been asked about radical Islam? I'm going to guess McInerney is not the only aviation expert familiar with Islamic terrorists.

    there are not better radars along that whole route than through Indonesia and Singapore. Singapore's got the best air defense and the best pilots down in that whole region.
    MH-370 could have easily headed south without nearing either country's airspace.

    So that's why I have not seen one piece of compelling evidence, to include these satellite pictures, that tell me that that airplane is down there. Now, it could very well be...
    There's no compelling evidence the airplane is anywhere. It's a mystery.

    The host confronts McInerney to ask if his thinking comes from secret sources:

    No, but it is not my sources. It's the logic that goes into everything that has come up...

    Can you confirm that you have sources that also are adding to your theory?

    MCINERNEY: Not now, I can't.
    Um, yeah. Not convincing, no evidence. Just more speculation to throw on the pile.

    List of unrecovered flight recorders

    Interestng....if you slowly go through it, all but 2-3 were either 15-40 years ago (much advancement in FDR tracking) , many were in third world countries which do not maintain their aircraft anywhere, expecilly 40 years ago.

    The notion being made here, is not finding the FDR by this point in time , in this day and age of tech, could easily further the possiblity that she is down, fine and in a hanger

    List of unrecovered flight recorders - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Just getting caught up - who would go into a forming hurricane (cyclone, typhoon all the same) to go look for an airplane wing!

    I don't post often, as i don't feel that confident in how i say things.

    Anyway - my mind keeps returning to the 2 boys travelling on stolen passports. They apparently entered Malaysia using Iranian passports, and left using stolen passports, as they physically were on the flight when it departed. One of the boys mum's was waiting for him in Germany - would the flight from KL to Beijing be a normal way to travel to Germany? In my head, if you're travelling on dodgy documents, the way to avoid any detection would be the quickest route involving the least changeover points. Is it known if the 2 boys knew each other? And can anyone who knows how to work out the aircraft seating arrangements, tell me if they were sitting together?

    With so many odd pictures being posted, i do believe their presence on the flight isn't coincidental, but don't think they have the maturity or learning to have tried to takeover the flying of the plane. However, they may have been there for another purpose.

    Unsure if i'm allowed to post this sort of ramble, but i keep going round in circles & keep returning to this point... I'll keep my pings & thoughts about that for the moment, as i'm seeing things that others are posting and thinking "i'm sort of understanding" for the moment, but it may change!

    Sorry again, i hope this ramble makes sense & hope someone is able to answer my queries or even just say they get where i'm thinking & possibly agree.

    Happy Saturday sleuthers!
    Here's what I think:

    The mom was in Germany and the 2 Iranians planned their escape from Iran to get to Europe. I don't blame them.

    They know they can fly to Malaysia on their Iranian passports. There are not many countries that allow Iranian passports without a visa.

    They found an underground stolen passport operation in KL, and paid $10,000 each for a European passport to get to Europe. I am certain whoever operates this underground stolen passport operation has many clients. Kind of like a drug dealer. I believe the 2 Iranians met at this point.

    Now, this is where it gets hazy. Did someone convince them to do something else, besides escape to Europe?

    IMO, the Iranians may be involved, but just accomplices to what could of happened if in fact MH370 was hijacked.

And even if it were, I just don't see any evidence yet to support the idea that the original pilots were voluntarily complicit. (In fact, even the Captain's simulator computer was today given a clean bill of health--"nothing suspicious" was found in the forensics. Not hard at all for me to believe, personally.)
    I feel they had to do what they did due to someone standing there. I think they turned before he said good night; I think the pilots were hoping someone would notice what was going on. I think they did what they could to stall taking the plane down before throwing it in the water.

    Here is a graphic that I think is entirely feasible for the plane path, sightings, and military waypoints (doesn't quite have all the military waypoints, but Igrex is the last one)! It seems to be a path where a plane would be the least detectable. This would discount the arc data though?

    Sri Lanka has quite a few public and private airfields.

    You could refuel and side on into Pakistan, Afghanistan and into Iran it's self.

    I think they know exactly where that plane is or what happened to it. They arent gonna tell us and are going to pull up debris from the ocean over months and years to make people believe the plane is really there.

    I believe the relatives of the planes passengers believe this as well. Which is why they are so mad.

    I'm on the same page as you. I do not think this plane crashed in the ocean anywhere because it doesn't make any sense. If the pilot wanted to kill himself..why would he take the lives of everyone else also, without making any statement? Why would he want to go "under the radar" and change directions of the airplane, and turn off the radar? I would think if this was also a terrorist act that we would all be well aware (just like when 9/11 happened...it didn't take long at all for the whole United States to know we were under attack!). It definitly feels like there is a cover up going on, and we will most likely never know the truth. But they are quickly running out of time...and they have to tell the people something! I had heard that the Malaysian government had jailed the leader of one of the largest anti-governement groups the day before the plane disappeared. I'm not sure if that is fact or rumor..but if that is true, i'm not sure why this wouldn't be the first place looked into? MOO
