    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. :yow: 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 :blowkiss: 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.

    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.

    IT’S PRETTY EASY FOR A PLANE TO JUST DISAPPEAR

    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.


    http://blogs.wsj.com/searealtime/2014/03/20/come-inside-the-room-where-news-breaks-on-flight-370/

    “Don’t attempt to hijack the microphone,”
    he warned one reporter.
    He told another, “If you don’t fall off my radar, you may get to ask a question.”


    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.

    http://www.kgw.com/home/Portland-man-defends-Malaysian-pilot--250707711.html

    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. :(

    Wow this thread really slowed down overnight.
    Last night at this time there was 100+ people in it!
    (Not that I'm complaining, present company is certainly more mature and pleasant!)

    Missing Malaysia Airlines MH370: Five air safety lessons to be learnt

    The hunt for Malaysia Airlines MH370, which went missing almost two weeks ago, has been one of the most puzzling - and chaotic - aircraft investigations on record.

    While multiple leads have gone cold, there are five lessons that should be learnt to fix the apparent - and sometimes shocking - weaknesses in the global air safety regime.

    I know this may sound far fetched but could the pilot and co-pilot got into a physical altercation? It seems working that closely with someone it could happen. Maybe over a woman or something else. I believe it was reported a friend of the pilots was sentenced to 5 years in prison only a day or two before. I'm sure his emotions were already heated from that.

    Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott is standing by his decision yesterday to release information on the sighting of two possible objects related to flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean, despite being questioned on whether he had been too quick to make the announcement in parliament.

    China's President Xi Jinping is "devastated" by the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said today after a phone call between the two.
