Search for lost jet expands amid signs it flew on

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- The search for the missing Malaysian jetliner expanded east and west on Friday after American officials said it was emitting signals to satellites for hours after its last contact with air traffic control nearly a week ago over the South China Sea.

Malaysian officials insisted that investigators had yet to reach a definitive conclusion on what radar and satellite data showed, and said the search was being expanded because efforts in current areas have not found any wreckage from the Boeing 777.

The possibility that the plane, carrying 239 people, flew many hundreds of miles (kilometers) beyond its last known location without any contact with the ground has strengthened speculation that its transponders and other communication devices were turned off deliberately.

That plane is on planet Zoreon. They made a mistake, they were told that a lot of Zoreons were on that plane, but, these people on that plane, were actually Goreons. Now they can suffer because of that mistake.

That’ll learn em.

I’m am going to go out on a limb again and say the following.

This aircraft is going to be used in a major terrorist op against the US before the November 2014 elections in order to save the Dems’ butts.

They could declare martial law, suspend habeus corpus, suspend elections indefinitely, etc.

OTOH, if the Dems played it right they could become the heroes of the hour by going after the bad guys. Then they lock in a popularity not seen in a very long time which translates into votes in November.

Generally speaking.... How the hell does a 777 just go missing? I know we are all into the speculation. But I had to ask myself, what is the real fascination with this story? Why am I interested? A plane crash in itself is news but not necessarily worthy of the attention this is getting.

So I have honestly concluded that the fascination in longer about a potential plane crash. But rather, a huge and obvious flying object that can hardly be conspicuous cannot be found. With all the technology we have today, humans on this planet cannot find an airplane and don’t even know where to look. I understand the attraction to follow the mystery.

(Just doing an introspective reality check on myself)

Anybody consider that Farrakhan’s Mother Ship could have sucked them up? It disturbs me that we are supposed to be able to track MISSILES in the air, but no one could see this plane. Whatever happened, they aren’t coming back. Let it be a lesson- stay OUT of Muslim countries and NEVER get on a jet with Muslim pilots. I feel sorry for any non-Muslims aboard, but less Muslims on the planet is always a good thing.

Saw this on another site and this is very troubling about the Captain.

And in a German online forum for simulator enthusiasts, X-Sim.de, there is a post from November 2012 in his name that says he built it himself.

“About a month ago I finish assembly of FSX and FS9 with 6 monitors.” The message was signed Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah BOEING 777 MALAYSIA AIRLINES

Guardian:

Satellite company says it registered signals
Inmarsat, the £3bn satellite company, registered “routine, automated signals” from MH370 on its network, the company said in a brief statement on its website.

The statement does not mention for how long the signals were received or when they stopped.

Wanna bet there was much more fuel on this flight than the Malaysian authorities are admitting?

That plane is in Somalia and being prepped for an attack against Israel.

Well, Mr. Hydrazine, I tend to agree that something will happen before the November elections as the impetus for declaring martial law and suspending said elections. Whether the missing flight plays a role will remain to be seen.

I think the up-link from the engines was an oversight.Once it was figured out that was happening someone shut it down.

this plane is going to be used in a major terrorist op...

Assuming it's possible for the plane to be taken, shouldn't I be less concerned now than I should've been for the few days after the plane disappeared? Now, there's going to be scrutiny. It will be harder to fly such a large rogue airplane.

You’ve accurately nailed *exactly* what I’ve been thinking. We’re so technologically “connected” to the world today and so used to being able to find information at the click of a button; it’s unnerving that a plane and 200+ people could seemingly vanish without a trace. A mystery indeed.

Can't believe I'm in agreement with Bill Nye(the globull warming/no-science guy)...until they thoroughly search the area around the last know position, everything else is conjecture and conspiracy theorist noise(mostly from people who've watched too much TV...or want to get their face on TV).

The media(as usual)is turning this into yet another soap opera/reality TV show.

IF this aircraft emits any electronic signals the US is/has been able to determine it’s location. I tend to think our intelligence folks know where it is. They’re watching to determine what the end game is.

Looking back at naval air battles in the Pacific during WWII, considering the technology of the day, it's a marvel they were able to find each other, let alone engage in battle.

Were newspaper editors that spoke against the sitting president jailed?
Did it matter since the opposing force formed its own country and had its own elections?

" Generally speaking.... How the hell does a 777 just go missing? "

From what I get from the news and what I have read there were no distress calls from the pilot nor was there any signals from the plane it's self.
I do not believe this plane just vanished out of thin air like in the Bermuda triangle either.
This is far more nefarious, could it be possible that a foreign communist government sent their military jets up in the air and escorted the plane to a hidden military base to use as some kind of ransom ?
They don't know where the plane is, and planes that do crash send out all kinds of signals from the plane and beacon pings.

Somewhere, someone has 239 hostages.

While the world is kept in the dark about this, there are either delicate negotiations happening or a full scale military rescue operation.

Bingo, and hidden at a foreign country communist government military base.
What if ? this is a false flag ? a air plane to look like F370 ? could have put on false decals to make it look like a Malaysian Airline jet.
Have the families of those people actually reported that their loved ones have gone missing ?

It’s also critical to remember that 20 of the “hostages” are employees of Freescale Semiconductor, a major defense contractor that specializes in electronic warfare systems.

Coastwatchers, spies, aerial recon seaplanes, and the codebreakers of the Imperial Japanese foreign office's 'Purple' machines had a lot to do with finding the IJN's surface fleets. All of these factors coming together took many months of immense effort of manpower and money ahead of the battles of Midway, The Coral Sea, and Leyte Gulf.

Here with Malaysian Airlines, this is one little plane lost for six days so far.

Put a nuke in it and fly it over our mid west. A 20 m-ton emp would wipe out our electrical grid and communications.

That has crossed my mind, too. If the aircraft was flying at 35K+ feet I don’t know how large the EMP would spread.

The extra fuel would not have had to be put in at last location. If they added X amount then someone else could have put a larger amount in earlier

Virtually none. It would need to be well over 100k feet to produce any. It would be useful to get an airburst going at 3k-5k feet or whatever though. And of course as a ramming jet. Or bio/chem but that would take a lot of modification that I doubt any smaller group would be able to do.

I think it’ll have either an Iranian or NorK nuke on board and fly over either DC or Wall Street. A financial or political decapitation of the US would set Israel to be invaded by Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood nations surrounding her.

Hopefully they are looking for any non-transponder big jets flying around. And they couldn’t possibly make it across either ocean going at low alt because of fuel. It would take a serious operation to get it flying again at all. I’d imagine if it was taken the target wouldn’t be all that far away. I still think it was United 93’d most likely.

If they have computer techs working on the aircraft they could put in a legitimate transponder code, re-paint the aircraft, and do anything else to make it look legit. Then file a fictitious flight plan to the US and get into the system. No one would be the wiser among the many other aircraft flying on the NATRACK.

EMP has been known since he detonated the first atomic bomb.

Use EMP on a third world nation? It wouldn’t affect them very much. Life would go on as usual for them.
