Tiresome coverage of missing flight MH370
03-18-2014 | Me

Posted on 03/18/2014 6:46:03 PM PDT by Kevin in California

Watching the news, it's the same old recycled garbage about this missing plane..."It turned here, it turned there!" "We think it's in this ocean...no, wait, maybe that ocean..." "The pilot said this...the pilot said that!" "It flew this high...it flew that low....it flew this low...it flew that high..."

You want answers? Hahahaha...good luck getting the truth out of the Malay govt. Yes, they know the fate of this plane. What fate is that you ask? The plane is most likely parked in some hidden location in a country that's unfriendly towards the US and they're sitting in their living rooms laughing at all the news networks and all their theories.

Just my opinion for what it's worth.....

I barely watch any news these days because there is nothing there. I get my news from Breitbart, The blaze, FR and Twitter.

I wonder how long people mused over this one. There’s never been a trace found ...

On 25 May 2003 a Boeing 727-223, registered N844AA, was stolen from Quatro de Fevereiro Airport, Luanda, Angola.

CNN is all MH370 all the time.

Today was the first European annexation since 1938 and all the MSM leads tonight were MH370 with no new developments.

“Meanwhile....NOTHING on Venezuela.”

The person in charge of CNN now, is the same guy that wrote Obama’s Styrofoam columns speech while head of NBC Entertainment.

They will cover NOTHING that might make a Democrat agenda look bad.

Economic figures in the US for the month of March are likely to be down — I guess they’ll blame MH370. Hey, somebody has to take the fall.

The coverage has now become covering the coverage. Reports are focused on what others have reported. Obama is lovin’ this and maybe pushing this to keep himself out of the news.

I don’t think many people worry about that plane... it was clearly a theft and/or suicide run. Or worse, a insurance fraud attempt that went wrong. I read yesterday, that a relative was actually on FR at the time trying to get input/help. But that incident didn’t engender the same curiosity as MH370.

MH370 was a fully staffed, legitimate flight with 239 people on board. Big difference... not only that, but the 777 also has a big lift capability or long distance flight capability. Makes it covetable if someone wants to use it for nefarious purposes, and a tradgedy if it is a accident with all on board.

And worse, this is 2014. Even if all the data systems on the plane were disabled, how did all these militaries miss the plane? The “System” as it were, totally failed across the board. We can’t rely on the object being looked for to be operational, at all. We *should* expect all ground & space tracking systems that should not be dependent on a data link with the craft to be able to still track the craft.

In the end, I think the plane malfunctioned, crew died, plane flew on till it ran out of fuel. USA, India, and perhaps China know where it is, but can’t say without showing their technology hand.

I made the following comments prior to other 'news':

I can’t sign on to a Boeing 777 of any type being flown into Indian airspace without being detected. However, I’ve qualified remarks prior stating everything is dependent on the US & other militaries providing factual & complete info.

This also relies on the so-called ‘last ping’.

(snip)

IMHO: It doesn’t matter.

I’m so done with this ‘distraction’: It’s a tragedy (all souls lost) and the public is being served a stage drama courtesy of multiple governments, agencies & militaries.

Either the simplest theory is the answer, or this is one of the most diabolical & well-planned plots (replete with clever & highly-technical misdirection)...all over a single airliner, which could have been acquired much easier for nefarious purposes, imho.

If it matters, here is the latest bs

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/malaysia/10704769/Malaysian-Airlines-MH370-live.html

You know what they say about opinions; I’m guilty, too.

On that note, I have business to attend to...

and
I go back to my prior comment ‘done with this’...I’m just too busy to play guessing-game when we’re being restricted to the information they want to give us. I say declare the flight ‘lost’ (insofar as the surviving relatives go) and hopefully those with ‘access’ will figure it out in due time.

1 minute is all it takes to cover everything known about the incident.

But it takes hours to report all the ignorance of it.

So - what exactly do you do with a captured and hidden airliner?

Answer: repaint it, use stolen transponder codes, then fly it into the airspace above an unsuspecting target and detonate the warhead it’s carrying. Could be Chem, could be bio, could be a “dirty” radiological weapon, or it could be a nuke.

The coincidental part of this is that all of those weapons are far more effective when exploded high above the target.

Al Qaeda, baby.

according to a report I heard today, CNN’s ratings have doubled in the past week since they’ve gone to non-stop Flight 370 coverage. Always it’s about ratings.

I am tending to sadly believe the plane must have been submerged in the ocean and we may well find out nothing more about it.

I suspect you are correct. Additionally, the passengers are probably still alive and will be used to allow the aircraft into any airspace they seek by holding them hostage with massive publicity. Nobody will want to assume responsibility for shooting them down with out confirmation of the payload.

Although it's an interesting story, I am sick of it. There coverage has been boring, repetitious, and often stupid. CNN has really gone into a frenzy over it. This gives them an excuse not to mention the Obamacare fiasco and Obama’s ineptness in dealing with Putin.

When are they going to start naming the hijackings like they do the hurricanes and snow storms? I would suggest the name of Ahab for the 370 flight......

My kid downloaded this “Fly Omar to Kandahar” game from an Iranian website. He is very sorry and didn’t realize he was controlling a real 777. He said it was over the Himalayas before the “blue screen of death” wiped the hard drive killed the PC.

Agreed. The need to fill air time when there is nothing to report--boring. And yes, they could be covering real, consequential news if they wanted to.

FNC has succumbed to the programming of the alphabet networks. Tonight, 3/18, there is no news on FNC, just wall to wall repetitious coverage about the missing flight.

Hint: Obama knows exactly what happened and where that flight now is.

what is a “stolen transponder code”?

There is no such thing. The transponder is a device that is manually set with a code by the pilot at the request and direction of air traffic control. In general aviation it is a 4 digit code. It is the equivalent of a number being assigned to a marathon runner you wear during the race. The transponder ("mode C" transponders) broadcasts airspeed and altitude and that information can then be tracked along with the position (from radar) by ATC.

There is the newer “Mode S’ transponder, it’s code is assigned to the the A/C upon registration.
