Malaysian Flight MH 370

    Feeling terrible thinking about the people in that ill fated plane. Where would MH 370 have disappeared?

      Me too. I have been visiting the Malaysian Airlines FB page since the day it never made it to the airport in hopes of some news. It seems a mystery. I often day dream about the plane having landed successfully in some remote area with all the passengers alive who one day will reunite with their families. Imagine the joy. Yet, I'm afraid something also horrible may have happened. Can't imagine what the relatives must be going through, if without even knowing them I feel terrible myself..

      I think it's buried and hidden deep down in some shrubs. I heard one speculation that the trees and shrubbery in the area are hundreds of feet tall. Mind-boggling. God bless them all and their families.

      A special military weapon may have been tested to the plane but this is only a speculation or conspiracy theory thing. Or maybe an alien abduction, teleported somewhere from up there to your backyard. Only we can do as Christians is to pray for them.

            I honestly think there is no reasonable expectation other than that the plane crashed.  But I understand that family members will hold out irrational hopes until the worst is confirmed.

  4. itsaetos profile image60
    itsaetosposted 4 years ago

    Yeah, many countries are working on it. But, its been taking so long, I'm starting to think there's another Bermuda Triangle in that area. I don't think it crashed into the sea or was directed somewhere else because sonar tests would detect it if it was underwater and satellite imagery could tell where the plane had been taken. And it seems that the mobile phones of some of the passengers are ringing, so the probability that it crashed into the water is scarce, as the mobile phones would stop working underwater, unless the passengers had Sony Xperia Z. I do not think even an Xperia Z could withstand the shock of crashing at such speeds.

    Most won't believe me but I think it could be an alien abduction. Nevermind.

    I hope the passengers are all safe.

      Some newspapers report that it is unlikely that satellite imagery could capture everything on every area on planet earth.

        It is possible to obtain recent images of earth, any part of the earth, there are over 3000 satellites orbiting the earth and the military can get the live/recent imagery. If it wants to, though.

      If mobile phones are ringing, that means someone is there to hear them and report that fact.  Whereupon we know where the wreck is as well.

      1. itsaetos profile image60
        itsaetosposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        That's the problem. Tracking attempts have failed because the signal is too weak.

        1. wilderness profile image97
          wildernessposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          If phones are ringing, then one (or more) cell towers are receiving the signal from the phones.  Meaning that phone is within about 5 miles of the tower(s).  This is all digital, not analog; go to the tower reporting contact and work the search parties out in a giant circle.  Not rocket science.

        Writer Foxposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        Experts don't think the phones are actually ringing.  Here's a news article answering some of the common questions people are asking about the crash:

          wildernessposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          That was kind of the point; the phones of the passengers aren't ringing at all, just the one placing the call.

          1. psycheskinner profile image82
            psycheskinnerposted 4 years agoin reply to this

            Exactly, so no cell tower is receiving anything from the passengers phones. These are just 'looking for the signal' rings and voicemail (not on the phone) pickups.

              That's it.  Nothing of any value, and nothing that even might lead to the plane.

                  The plane crashed.  I really don't think it landed safely somewhere and was whisked out of sight.

      3. psycheskinner profile image82
        psycheskinnerposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        The kind of ringing they are doing occurs with a destroyed phone.  The journalists are doing a bad job of covering that part of the story.

        In the absence of debris this could be a difficult search.  The Air France plane lost in the ociean threw up debris and still took over 2 years to find. Add to that they have very little idea exactly where it went down with only primary radar data.

          Could be possible, you never know. But, I think we would've found out by now. I presume its something unnatural.

            Marisa Wrightposted 4 years agoin reply to this

            As someone else said, an Air France plane crashed into the sea a few years ago and disappeared without trace.   If the water is deep enough searchers may not pick it up.   They only found it when debris surfaced 2 years later.  So there's no reason to think it's unnatural at all.

            Personally I don't know why anyone is still saying "hope is fading".  There is no hope by now.  If it had been forced to fly elsewhere by terrorists, they would have issued a demand by now.  If it had been forced to land for any other reason, the pilots would have notified authorities.

            There are switches in the cockpit that pilots can press if there's a terrorist attack or other problem, and it takes only seconds to press one of them.  The pilots didn't even have time to do that - which suggests some catastrophic explosion.

    I think it is natural to speculate but we should admit we just don't know.  Most likely it crashed somewhere in the area--for an unknown reason.

      Now, how did I know that was coming?  But you forgot that the US president planned and executed the abduction of the plane and passengers.
