    Malaysia airlines plane may have crashed 239 people on board #14

    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

    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.
    there's a part of me that wonders if this whole story about these boys is a ruse....the "they wanted to escape Iran and mama is waiting" makes them more sympathetic, but it is all fishy to me

    The map is just good reference for sorting out the pings and understanding why they are searching both northern and southern areas.
    I also see why the "terrain masking" is a consideration for the northern path.
    But the southern path indicated does not traverse Indonesia.

    At 2:15am, the last Thai and Malay military radar blip showed MH-370 leaving the Malacca Strait on a northwest heading toward the Andaman Sea.

    The flight path on that published map shows the potential southern turn out at sea far off the Indonesian coast.

    If Slate/CNN are right and the southern path should have shown up on Indonesian military radar, it seems like it should have passed much closer to Indonesia than the map indicates.

    "If you were in charge of finding this plane, what would you be doing right now?"

    Get back on track everyone. I overlooked the off topic posts last night, I am not overlooking them this morning.

    Curious as to why it takes so long to report something sighted in a satellite pic? At this point search teams may as well go sit on the edge of Antartica and wait for debris to wash up.

    Two routes impossible

    Why are there two possible flight paths? I understand they are pings from an aircraft received by a satellite. The reality is the airplane can only go ONE way! It either went north or went south, but not both routes! Can the brains that know it all not disclose this one simple answer?

    I am just wondering if the satt images of the debris has moved far distances due to current, wind etc, since they are over several days old.

    Don't know how to carry a post over from last thread, but would like to say this for myself and I think most on this board feel the same. Discussion that implies the pilot or copilot or two traveling with stolen passports could be responsible for this tragedy is not an accusation, but is speculation for purpose of discussion. I do not see any sign of profiling based on country of origin or individual's profession. If this tragedy was brought about by anyone other than the pilot, copilot, or bearers of stolen passports we would speculate about them also. In reality we don't know much of anything about others on the flight to speculate. If it wasn't for speculation, there would be very little to discuss since we've been there and done that. I hope I made sense. Thanks

    Someone pointed out on C2C last night that the Malaysian Grand Prix starts on the 28th.

    http://www.thesundaily.my/news/993846

    That could be a good reason to steal a plane with the intent on making it into a bomb.
