    Malaysia airlines plane may have crashed 239 people on board #21

    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

    Members can create topic specific threads for in depth discussion, new developments in the case or as the need arises. New threads will go under mod review and a decision will be made whether to approve and open the thread for posting. Most threads are approved immediately.

    It's a really easy mistake to make though. But lots of people overseas don't realise just how far away from Perth the search area is. I think the first search area was about the same as the distance between New York and Houston or from London to Moscow.

    It was likely around dawn when the plane crashed, depending on its position.

    Anish Patel, president of US black box beacon manufacturer Dukane Seacom, said he was "highly sceptical" about the report.

    "Let's get some additional assets in the water so we can corroborate, before we get everyone's hopes up," he told CNN.

    Malaysia's defense minister and acting transport minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, was hopeful.

    "Another night of hope - praying hard," he tweeted in response to the latest discoveries.

    I am very doubtful as well that they have found the black box. We can't even find a floating cushion (and there at least about 300 of them, but they found the black box?

    Highly unlikely.

    I just hope the weather there cooperates for the next 2 or 3 days at least.

    I've been wondering about this. Having the technical capacity to track the plane and having someone watching and interpreting that information are two very different things. If you think about the volume of air traffic that is typically in the air, if air traffic control doesn't keep on top of it then I doubt any other agency is going to be keeping track of every commercial flight at any given time.

    That is a good point, but also the debris could have gone to a different location by now with the currents and everything.

    And instead of trying to figure out and calculate where the debris would be by now (if crash was at that location), and then go out and send planes and ships to search there - much easier to just verify this "acoustic event" as related to the black box or not, first.

    Regarding Diego Garcia, I doubt it's of any particular significance but, just for some historical background from a British perspective, the historic inhabitants were evicted by the UK government in the 1960s, to make way for the base, and have asserted their right to return ever since, in fact they won a high court case in 2006, in London:

    The US lease expires in 2016 and must be renegotiated by the end of this year:

    The ocean seems to be more than we can comprehend or have any that recall. My father did recall. He was navy, in subs.

    The ocean is incredibly deeper than we can comprehend, incredibly violent ocean. All that have water jobs know.

    When you go to the beach and see waves larger than a house, you can double or triple that for the Indian Ocean. Close to tsumani at all times, a planetary vortex. Keep in mind that right now it is freezing cold too.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    This is purely a guess, and I would welcome being corrected, but I think the detection instrument converts the frequency signal (emmitted by the black-box) into a "sound". Like your radio, for example (if you remember what that is), the radio signal is sitting waiting for you to turn on your radio. If you don't turn on your radio you won't hear the broadcast waves. I would be very annoyed if everytime I flew I had to be hearing the damn black-box pinging for the entire flight.
    I suppose a tree falling in the forest, with nobody there to hear it, would be a non-acoustic event.
