I think someone may have taken it down, knowing it was hijacked and a danger. Unlikely, maybe - but possible. Hence the delay in information to the general public. Trying to decide how to handle it?
Didn't offend me at all! It is amazing how fast the internet travels!!:loveyou:
Given the tensions in that area, there is no way that Malaysia did not scramble jets to take a look at that aircraft. No way would they have just let it go with a wait and see attitude, because if it was under the control of someone other than the pilots, the country is not going to take the chance of it flying into a populated area intentionally.
Also people need to keep in mind that, the lower one of those jumbo jets flies, the faster it uses up it's fuel. So it would not have had an additional 6 or 7 hours of flying time if it maintained a low altitude to stay off of most radar screens.
I'm not trying to get off track or divert attention, but if the co-pilot has a history of this, who knows what happened and it could have something to do with recent events. Of course Malaysian Airlines doesn't want this coming out about one of their pilots...and I'm sure it's not just because of the families.
These were the first images I have seen so I linked them here. The first 2 appear to actually be with the pilot and the one of them standing shows the co-pilot on the right.
Let's think about it....if they knew about the change in course from the start why wouldn't they tell us? They either did not know or they have a reason to lie. There was manpower, time and money wasted looking in the wrong areas. If they knew why would they do this?? Why? What's the most logical reason?
Well that is interesting.
I've changed my thoughts from double engine failure to hijack attempt and military response. They've known where it went (soon as it lost communication and radar) and when it turned. They knew with no ability to keep other planes informed of it's path, and no idea what was going on...they had to deal with the threat. I believe military responded with force. The past few days have been to make sure it's never found and the military is not attacked for killing innocent passengers. I think the same happened to Flight 93. That was daytime in America, on open farmland and nobody saw it go down, or found any big pieces of debris. Just my own opinion as always.
Sorry. That wasn't directed at you, just including it as a response to the article. :blushing: Also. I agree!
I fly often and I am very aware of when a plane is tilting and taking a turn...but they do it all the time so I don't think twice about it....I just figure it's part of the route.
And they did nothing, and said nothing until today! :thud: WHY? I'm starting to think maybe it was shot down. :waitasec:
Super Duper Bad idea! :notgood:
I know it's far fetched for most people but I agree with you. I believe alot more goes on with gov. and military than people think or would like to admit to. All JMO
Cover their own a$$. :twocents:
Going on the theory that the plane turned and kept flying, where could it have been headed? I mean in event of a hijack. I would think major city but...where and, more importantly, why? Just baffles me.
I think you are miss understanding. Flight radar24 said that when the plane dropped below 29,000 that "they" (and other websites like them) would no longer able to track it because of their coverage lapse spots in that area of the ocean. (and that would be with the transponder on). Once the transponder is turned off then it cannot be tracked using that same type of transponder technology.
Passengers can sustain up to 2 months if plane crashed at sea, says geostrategist
The Kelantan police have received four reports from members of the public in connection with the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 which went missing en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur last Saturday.
Kelantan police chief Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said the reports were lodged from Sunday until yesterday with complainants claiming that they saw an aircraft, believed to be MH370, at several locations.
Flight 93 was not shot down. It was brought down by the passengers on the plane who decided to take it down rather then risk having it crash into another landmark. This was covered by 9/11 and it was a group of passengers that overtook the plane from the high-jackers.
Also, I think our two supposedly innocent Iranian stolen passport gentlemen under the direction of Mr. Ali..(can't make this stuff up) were responsible. They had only a backpack (think Boston bombers) light luggage and were leaving to seek asylum in Germany, forever? I'll bet you a nickel, one or both had pilots licenses.
UPDATE [4.59am]: DigitalGlobe, the company that invited the public to help locate MH370 as a crowdsourcing initiative, has seen unprecedented traffic, which overloaded its servers. They sent out a tweet asking volunteers to return later as they have new imagery collections to be searched.
That's not the Co-Pilots fault or responsibility, it's the captains. First officer is right hand seat and is basically what it says on the tin, Captain (whoever this guy is) will be in the deep ****ter I am sure of it - he is after all the commander of this airplane.
First officer will not object IMHO to what the Captain does, unfortunately seniority can cause accidents as it was known in the Tenerife disaster that the FO didn't want to stop the Captain.
