    Malaysia airlines plane may have crashed 239 people on board #20

    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

    going back to the mangosteens (sorry ), MSM misspoke and there were not TONS of mangosteens on the plane, but TONNES of mangosteens:

    They are also retracing every piece of cargo that was loaded on to the Boeing 777, including tonnes of mangosteens, a tropical Asian fruit with a leathery shell surrounding fragrant white flesh.

    ___

    The tonne is a metric system unit of mass equal to 1,000 kilograms (2,204.6 pounds) or 1 megagram (1 Mg).

    China and Malaysia are trying to patch things up, but an armed kidnapping at a dive resort won’t help

    I am more and more convinced that Malaysia just needs a professional public relations spokesperson as well as to do some self analyzing of how they themselves are handling things and quit tooting their own horn so much.

    I cannot believe what I am reading at that link. Here are some gems in this report.

    “For example when we knew there was a load of mangosteens on board we had to find out where the mangosteens came from,” he said. “We tracked down who plucked the fruits, who packed them and shipped them out, who put them on the plane.”

    I am no air crash investigator but I would bet good money that the person that plucked the fruit didnt bring that plane down.
    Here is where they start to toot their own horn again.

    "Imagine how many people we must interview and that was just the mangosteens,” he said."

    Yeah, I suppose when you needlessly go that far, it is a lot of people.


    "Police have refused to publicly release the plane’s cargo manifest but it is known to include a consignment of lithium-ion batteries that have previously been blamed for causing fires on aircraft. "


    How about thinking about possibly putting too much weight and using a passenger plane as a cargo run. With tons of mangosteens + batteries + all the people and their luggage ithey may have overloaded that plane to unsafe levels.

    And finally...


    “There were weaknesses in the co-ordination between different departments and contradictory statements were given,” Mr Huang said....snipped....."
    Mr Huang accused Western media of playing a disgraceful role.
    “They have published false news, stoked conflict and even spread rumours,” he said. “These could provoke the frail spirits of the next of kin...snipped"


    Uhhhhhh.....How about your self-admitted contradictory statements that have angered next of kin.

    They just need a different spokesperson because they do not do themselves any favors by what they say. This is no place to toot your own horn or critisize other news media until that plane is found.
