Skip to comments.CNN Exclusive: Analysis shows 2nd possible Indian Ocean path for Malaysia airliner (Likely crash)
Posted on 03/14/2014 2:39:13 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
A classified analysis of electronic and satellite data, conducted by the United States and Malaysian governments, calculates Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 likely crashed into the Indian Ocean on one of two possible flight paths, CNN has learned.
One flight path suggests the plane crashed into the Bay of Bengal off the coast of India, and the other has it traveling southeast and crashing in the Indian Ocean, according to the analysis.
Yet another theory is taking shape about what might have happened to missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Maybe it landed in a remote Indian Ocean island chain.
The suggestion -- and it's only that at this point -- is based on analysis of radar data revealed Friday by Reuters suggesting that the plane wasn't just blindly flying northwest from Malaysia. And it's just one of untold theories floating around about what might have happened to the airliner, which disappeared a week ago without leaving much of a trace of where it had gone or why.

Folks gonna look real silly when they find the 777 in the park that was Meigs Field
Maybe it was intercepted in mid air by another ROP controlled aircraft, they get very close and swap transponder signals, 777 then proceeds on the flight path of the other jet while the other goes silent and down to the deck.
I just don’t see why hijackers would have taken the plane just to crash it in the Indian Ocean..they had every opportunity to crash it into the China Sea..what is so special about the Indian Ocean that they had to crash it there, for what, so that it would never be found and to torture these families even more. I dont buy it
Currently in Hangar 51 overlooking the grassy knoll
Its on planet Zoreon. The Zoreons heard that there were a bunch of Zoreons on board, so they grabbed it and took it to their planet. They have now found out that it had Goreons on it, and are now trying to decide what in the hell to do with it.
Deal with it Zoreons!
RE: I just dont see why hijackers would have taken the plane just to crash it in the Indian Ocean..they had every opportunity to crash it into the China Sea.
Well, they probably wanted to go to a place that required them to cross the Indian Ocean ( Mogadishu?), however, they overestimated the amount of fuel the plane had to get there.
The plane then, unfortunately crashed because it did not have enough fuel to get to its intended destination.
Yeah but they were flying for 4-5 hours after contact was lost..they couldn’t locate where they needed to go? They had no problem hijacking a plane but couldn’t find the place that they needed to land in..doesn’t sound right
“I just dont see why hijackers would have taken the plane just to crash it in the Indian Ocean..they had every opportunity to crash it into the China Sea.”
.Why indeed. Perhaps the investigators are asking themselves the same question. The answer — or non-answer —might be important.
I found a report on a 777 aborting a takeoff because of a failed RollsRoyce engine fan blade. Had this happened midair, the flight would have gone down eventually, one would think. Perhaps something like this cut off other essential parts of the plane like oxygen, while still flying. Which leads back to the decompression theory many tech-savvy posters have discussed here.
Freepers might want to tune into both Fox and CNN, to hear whats up!!
"I know! Let's go gets us a airplane and ransom it."
I don’t buy the notion that it was commandeered and landed at a hidden airfield somewhere. That would be far too risky in terms of detection and make their mission very unlikely to succeed. The hijackers would know that the moment authorities realize the plane had been hijacked there would be fighter jets scrambled after them from every nearby air force and satellites searching for them.
Because the clock would be ticking until they were spotted by a nearby country, hijackers taking control of the plane would head directly for their target and try to crash it on their target as soon as possible, in order to minimize the time for air forces to intercept them.
I would guess that the aircraft was hijacked by muzzie terrorists and they began to proceed directly to their intended target in order to crash the plane into it.
Why were they headed in the direction of India? Muzzie terrorists would not crash it into a muslim city like Kuala Lumpur. Their greatest enemies are the US and India.
The flight path suggests they were headed to India. They would love to strike New Delhi or some other Indian city. Their plan may have been to follow the typical flight corridor used by airliners and then veer off and crash it into New Delhi. Other targets might be Bangalore or Hyderabad.
However, it appears that the hijackers did not knew about the aircraft periodically automatically pinging satellites. If they did know about it, then obviously they would have disabled it hours earlier when they shut off the transponder.
Therefore, we can conclude that the plane likely never made it beyond the flying radius from the last ping heard to when the next ping would have been heard. If the pings come every hour, then the plane crashed or landed within an hour of the last ping. This would eliminate possibilities such as flying on to Iran or Pakistan.
Why did they not make it to their target? Perhaps as they were approaching radar distance from India, the terrorists lowered the altitude to just over the water but ended up crashing into the sea, or the passengers realized what was happening and stormed the cockpit.
Eventually, pieces of this plane will begin to wash up on the shores of Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand.
Langoliers... just sayin'.
I think, with the crazy ways the plane was flying, different altitudes, that whoever had control over the plane was a decent flyer but not an expert..it would have been like me controlling plane, would have looked like someone drunk was doing it since I have no idea how to fly an aircraft, one second its 45,000 feet(For what purpose it was that high I have NO idea) then down to 30,000, then down to 25,000 and back up again..I think if it was the pilot doing that there would not have been a time lapse in turning off the transponders, they both would have been turned off at the same time, not one then 14 minutes another one
Too much Stephen King :)
Have they really discovered Planet Mongo? And how did Ming learn to speak English?
AH HA!!!! How much of a reward?
