This Man Claims He Watched Malaysia Air Flight 370 Go Down in Flames
New York Magazine ^ | 3/12 | Joe Coscarelli

Posted on 03/12/2014 2:53:32 PM PDT by nickcarraway

ABC's Bob Woodruff has shared an email from an oil rig worker stationed near the coast of Vietnam that alleges to have witnessed the missing jet go down in flames. "The timing is right," writes Mike McKay. "While I observed the burning (plane) it appeared to be in ONE piece."

McKay's employer has confirmed that the letter is not a hoax. "From when I first saw the burning (plane) until the flames went out (still at high altitude) was 10-15 seconds," he writes. "There was no lateral movement, so it was either coming toward our location, stationary (falling) or going away from our location."

"I tried to contact the Malaysian and Vietnam officials several days ago. But I do not know if the message has been received," he adds. Although McKay provides coordinates for his location at the time, Woodruff reports that Vietnamese officials say they found nothing at the site. Although the alleged eyewitness account has not been corroborated, it couldn't hurt to look again.

Most people think that the very most expensive US defense item developed for use in World War 2 was The Bomb.

Right? Wrong:

It was developing and perfecting the B-29 that delivered it.

Puts it right about where the Chinese say they have satellite images of floating debris.

If this guy sighted the doomed 777 from near the coast of Vietnam then either he has the world's greatest eyesight or the image below is wrong.

Light pollution is minimal. Burning objects are quite visible at great distances during the night. I spent 10 years in the area back in the 60s & 70s & its dark at night there.

Were they a ‘couple’?

LOL! Whenever we get a call at work and there’s no one on the line (for whatever reason - usually a Robo Call) I always say:

“I LOVE how Elvis checks in with me from wherever he is in the world!”

And what if they were? As long as they’re happy, blah, blah, blah. And now you must bake them a wedding cake and make them a floral display!

So surprising, I had to check.

According to wikipedia, total cost of Manhattan Project: $2.4 billion. Total cost of B-29: over $2.5 billion.

The coordinates on the letter put the rig’s postion about 100 or so miles off the coast, to the north east of the last recorded position on your map. But he spotted it at around 270° from his position and having no lateral motion, which is odd. So the plane would have been going east or west, not north east.

I already told David Icke, he's supposed to tell Art next time he sees him at Golden Corral. Did you know they have lobster tails now for $3.99?

He said he is on an oil rig. His coords put him well out off the SE coast of VN.

running the numbers puts the crash site ~240 miles at ~230 degrees from the oil rig.

This administration can only destroy so many businesses at a time. Be patient.

Gee, this sounds like a Democratic speech for the 2014 election.
