Retired Lt. General Thomas McInerney was back on with Sean Hannity tonight and still stands by his original statements that missing MH370 landed and did not crash into the ocean.
I think those passengers have the potential to still being alive. And I believe that airplane landed. I believe the airplane has landed and Ive listened to a lot of aviation experts and none of them know anything about radical Islam. And I think that was one of the major shortcomings to think that as well planned as this was, and you just went through it with Mr. Kay, on how the transponder was turned off, they said goodnight, ACARS went off transponder. Take the line from the last transponder hit and then take the line from the Thai radar skin paint and draw that line. And see where it goes. It heads straight for India.
How does that theory explain signal strength readings recorded by the Inmarsat satellite?
The entire story is bizarre but this guy is going to look like total idiot if they find the wreckage in the ocean.
Many confusing opinions out there, but McInerney stands by his previous statement - thread below.
Retired Air Force general stands by theory Malaysian Airlines flight could have landed in Pakistan
They’re all dead!
The only reason to take that plane to 45,000 for a short time would be to kill everyone but themselves.
I believe him.
I agreed with you until I realizd that all they would have had to do was turn off the air system. Why risk having a stallout at 45,000 feet when all they had to do was flip a switch?
Even if he is right on his "Radical Islam done took it" claim, what could possibly make him think the hijackers didn't kill the passengers?
The trouble with conspiracies is that for that theory to work, EVERYONE connected with it has to keep quiet. But there is no evidence from anywhere of any plane landing, plans to hijack, etc. Sadly it most likely is at the bottom of some ocean somewhere.
They could kill everyone at 35,000’ because the cabin pressure is the same as at 45,000. At 35K feet with no oxygen you go unconscious without even knowing it within 1 minute. Been in decompression chamber
The cockpit crew could kill everyone just by putting on masks, and decreasing the pax cabin pressure while the plane at 35K’ and depriving the pax of oxygen.
777 pilot interviewed went through the ascend scenario using a real accident they train on, showing how this may have happened when the crew and the autopilot battled each other for control. He indicated the person who took off the autopilot maybe didn’t know how hard the plane was going to be to fly, and took some time to get control. He indicated the upward pitch may have occurred when the autopilot was disengaged - the industry has seen it happen, it is a scenario they train for in simulators and a similar situation caused one notorious crash.
On the other the plane may have ben put into maneuvers to throw the attendants and passengers off their feet, since the outside passenger crew does have a way to access the cockpit. I believe this happened during flt 93
Unless they somehow “triangulated” the maintenance pings(doubtful), they wouldn’t give a heading, just time. How did they arrive at a heading towards the South Indian Ocean? (~1400 miles SW of Perth) I don’t think I read anything about how the NTSB?? arrived at a heading.
He is/was one the smartest officers in the USAF, and a pilot
Not as dumb as the guys that ignored a missing jet airliner right up until it entered their air space and delivered a WMD. In the post 9-11 world and all.
I heard one expert say that a cockpit struggle (e.g., the captain over the copilot) could well explain the rise to 45k and an increase to that height would not compromise the pressure in the cabin.
Even if he is right on his “Radical Islam done took it” claim, what could possibly make him think the hijackers didn’t kill the passengers?
Malaysian plane: 20 passengers worked for ELECTRONIC WARFARE and MILITARY RADAR firm
I’ve seen 777 pilots on TV explain the plane won’t automatically stall at 45,000 feet. It depends on the weight and speed of the plane.
Also, people don’t automatically die at 45,000 feet. They will lose consciousness but would still be alive. It may have been to subdue them.
He is an idiot. Does he really believe some is feeding and keeping 200 plus people alive.
Whenifhow, thanks for the post!
All y’all, ping to the Lt. Gen standing by his assertion; he references the 2 positions and interpolated the direction it went.
It;s possible that after a hour, some could succumb but certainly not all, because the plane still has breathable air but just not enough 0'2 for consciousness.
That's why I don't think the rise to 45k was intended to kill them. But only to put them out as there were only two of them probably and they could not handle that many people.
I think if they crashed, it was because of a lack of fuel. If they did not crash, then they landed...
The where, I don't know, but Somalia might have been within reach. Or Pakistan...but I like Somalia..The home of the Somali pirates who use ransom like we use stocks and bonds,
