    What do you think happened to Malaysia flight 370?

      I have a feeling we will never know what happened.  There are many theories flying around but no real facts that I have seen.  I would be very surprised if they ever find the plane or any of the passengers again.

        I can't believe a 320 million dollar Boeing 777 has just vanished. A Boeing 777  just vanishing gives me very little faith in Defense Depts.

          Perhaps that Boeing 777 will show up for sale on Craigslist on of these days?

            On March 8, 2014, Freescale announced that twenty of its employees were passengers aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. That plane, carrying the Freescale employees, is currently missing

              That is interesting in light of the most recent speculation by aviation experts that the plane was purposely diverted by someone with knowledge of how the plane worked.  Found this post on a google search.
              So we have the American IBM Technical Storage Executive for Malaysia, a man working in mass storage aggregation for the company implicated by the Snowden papers for providing their services to assist the National Security Agency in surveilling the Chinese.. And now these 20 Freescale Engineers whom work for a global leader in embedded processing solutions (embedded smart phone tech and defense contracting) with equal NSA ties (Project PROMIS), all together on a plane..And now disappeared..  Twelve of the US tech company employees are Malaysian, eight are Chinese.

              We may never know.

      I think if it had gone down in the ocean anywhere within the search grid based on fuel load and range, we would have found some evidence by now. There would be debris, bodies, fuel slick, something would have been spotted with as intense as this search has become.

      This aircraft was stolen/hijacked and is being secreted away someplace probably in order for it to be used against some western target in the future. Of course this is just my opinion based on what the public has been told.

        The very first day it went missing, I told people on FB that i thought it was hijacked.  Each day we received more "info" which I would use to research and come up with my blog on FB.  I do not believe it has crashed.
             Back on 3.12.14, I stated in my FB Blog that I felt it had been hijacked by a terrorist group that was in support of Russia and Putin's take over of the Ukraine.  Because there 2/3's of the passengers were Chinese, I believe that it was because China wouldn't support Russia in the takeover.  Also, if it had been just a malfunction, we would have seen or heard from the passengers on the plane via cell phones, IPads, or laptops.  We heard from them during 911 and technology is so much more advanced than it was then.
            3.13.14- I did a more research and discovered that Kazakhstan is a Russian Ally as is Australia.  Since at that point, the FIFTH day, the plane was missing and no debris had been found, I really felt the plane was taken to Kazakhstan as there are several abandoned airfields up there.  What better place to hide a "technology smart" 777 for later use as the most destructive bomb ever seen.  If Al Qaeda is involved, it will have to be bigger than 911, because that is the way they do things.
              I'm sure it took more than just the pilot and co-pilot to handle all the details of the transponder, ACRS [which is located in the belly of the plane], as well as fly the plane and maintain control of the passengers.
             My fear is that the passengers, who were not involved,have not survived.  When the plane first changed course, we were told that the plane rose to 45000 ft, which would render the passengers unconscious giving the terrorists time to get organized.  I would be very happy if I was wrong.

          but wouldn't the terrorists themselves also be unconscious in a plane over 45,000 ft?

            No, as there are portable oxygen tanks for the crew to use.  The ones that drop down from the ceiling for passengers only last a few minutes, but the tanks have a longer time.

          I hope you are wrong too, but at some point we have to ask ourselves what would explain the facts as we know them.  I just don't know, but its too weird.  So many countries have poured their best efforts into looking for the tiniest piece of wreckage, an oil slick, or  body part, and none can be found?  My son was telling me the other day about drones that can take pictures of really cool things like birds, and all kinds of things from a birds eye view, etc.  He said he heard you can get them for a couple hundred dollars, and I don't know if that is true but the technology being there makes sense.  They can use it to look for bodies after catastrophes in hard to reach locations, etc.  I have to verify about their use as cameras, but it just made me think of this story too.

          If several countries used their best technology, some of their money and man power to help, and all found not one iota of anything?  That is too strange.

            Yes, drones are able to fly and take pictures of very small things, but I'm not sure their capability of such long flights over the ocean, unless of course they are sent from ships.  They probably would be useful if debris is found as they could get close enough to identify what it is.

            Some realtors in California are using drones to sell real estate as they can fly around the neighborhood and area to show the surroundings.

      It crashed into the ocean and sank to the bottom.

        Most likely, and in 10,000 pieces to boot.

          And even if it had done, there would still be debris or other evidence. No, this plane and it's passengers were taken someplace. My guess is it's someplace in Pakistan.

            Given the area of ocean now in the pattern (as far as Australia), and the time having past--I can believe there could have been debris and it not found.  Frankly, I have no idea what happened to the plane and it seems I am not alone in that.

            1. Superkev profile image61
              Superkevposted 9 years agoin reply to this

              Could have, but to my mind not likely given the intensity of the search. I mean there are even people on the internet trying to find this thing.

              No, by now, some piece of debris or a body would have been found. And given the fact that everyone now agrees it DID fly for some time after the transponder was shut down (5 to 7 hours, depending on who is talking).

              They may not agree on the exact time frame, but they agree the aircraft continued flying. That points to a hijack/kidnapping together with no physical evidence being found 9 days (?) after the disappearance.

              I'd lay 5 to 1 odds it's sitting someplace in Pakistan.

              It might have went down into the water whole--without any debris

                That would be pretty much impossible.

                  What debris there might have been has had  time to drift or sink now, under the influence of a major storm system.

      I think there was no flight of that number. Many high society people create propaganda like this. Just my opinion. Sorry. smile

    How did the engine monitoring system continue to put out data for four hours AFTER the transponder signal cut off?

    I just viewed this comment via facebook:

    "This is just another HOAX and you people are falling for it hook, line, and sinker!! What you should be looking at is what the Government is trying to steer you away from watching or paying attention too!!"

    Interesting, I don`t know what to believe anymore sad

    The ocean and landmass area now being searched is just... massive.  Finding anything would be almost a miracle.

      On the positive side, Malaysia has turned over all "raw data" to the US.  Maybe we will have a better prospective as to what happened. 

      One of the issues that is making it harder to find the plan and to have followed it was that Malaysia never bought the "tracking" package that went with the plan.  They said it was too expensive.  I'm not sure why Boeing hasn't been able to pull up that info though.  I'm not sure if I missed why they don't have it.  I did hear that Rolls Royce said they never tracked it either.

    There are over 230 people who know exactly where this plane is. They aren't talking!

    The United States has the ability to look down from satelites and photograph pretty much any area of the world. If they are doing this they would see a debris field if the plane crashed.

    If the plane was hijacked to another country it would be very easy to land among other planes(in a plane salvage area)  and quickly be diverted to a hidden location. The possibilities are endless.

    These possibilities are all speculation and really useless and a waste of time unless you are directly involved in finding these missing people.
