Skip to comments.New:Newer;Newest:Missing plane: Piracy Theory Gains More Credence
Posted on 03/14/2014 6:34:43 PM PDT by lbryce
Piracy and pilot suicide are among the scenarios under study as investigators grow increasingly certain the missing Malaysia Airlines jet changed course and headed west after its last radio contact with air traffic controllers.
The latest evidence suggests the plane didn't experience a catastrophic incident over the South China Sea as was initially suspected. Some experts theorize that one of the pilots, or someone else with flying experience, hijacked the plane or committed suicide by plunging the jet into the sea.

Still waiting for someone reporting a tractor beam pulling the plane into a UFO's hanger deck.
Ridiculous. It was not a suicide flight. They’d have crashed it where they were. no reason to try and avoid radar and fly for hours.
At first I thought maybe it was like the EgyptAir flight, a suicidal pilot. I dont believe that anymore..if either of these two pilots wanted to off themselves they would have done it in the China Sea, no need to turn off the transponder, just scream out Allah Akbar and be done with it, no need to be all secretive
My inner cynic is beginning to think perhaps there’s a coverup going on. Who would cover up what? How about Rolls-Royce covering engine failure? Or Boeing?
Why? Can passengers’ families sue? Can RR and Boeing lose sales?
Pilot and 1st Officer are/were muslims. Risk factor for an internal job goes way way up.
These people know that America always jumps in to help in crises. Maybe they’re using this plane search as bait to lure our ships, etc., in a vulnerable position and then annihilate them.
Or alien abduction.
yeah, it was pirates, that’s the ticket.
If it crashed into the sea why didn’t the ELTs automatically activate?
Pulau We, Sabang, SBC. An airport.
On an Island off the coast of Banda Aceh.
I believe what Dr. Limbaugh and Dr. Savage said: It was probably shot down by some jet from a paranoid country, then covered it up when they realized what they did.
WRONG! The terrorists wanted to create an aftermath such as what we are talking about now. Also, they would choose to ditch the aircraft in water much deeper than was available around Malaysia, Viet Nam, etc, and that would be out over the Indian Ocean.
I’m waiting for the theory mongers to say “I am an idiot!” when the mystery is resolved and it doesn’t match their ridiculous theories.
So the terrorists (who could have crashed the plane into MASSIVE landmarks in Malaysia including one of the tallest structures in the world) decided to just dump it into the Indian ocean to troll search and rescue.
That too.. Being shot down isn’t ruled out either. Malaysia directed search teams to the wrong areas, perhaps on purpose? Also, China provided satellite photos of wreckage as a diversion away from them having been involved?
Given the nature of what appears to be a spectacular cover up, this is as likely a scenario as any.
Muslim terrorists choosing their target in a Muslim country (Malaysia) is a ridiculous scenario.
Not really. Muslims bomb within their own countries all the time.
If it was shot down, I’d say the U.S. military is far from the least likely culprit.
With the investigation dragging on, and both Rolls Royce and Boeing involved and committing costly resources to it, look for Rolls Royces and Boeings go up in prices after all this is over.
If this plane did not suffer a sudden demise, there would have been at least some cell phone communication indicating a hijacking or a general problem, no? The fact that no human voice communication whatsoever regarding conditions in the air were received on our end points heavily to a catastrophic event that prevented the same. Instant depressurization, for example. That this plane is safely parked somewhere is, IMO, highly unlikely.
Not sure about that. The phones may have been confiscated early on.
Agreed. Heard that earlier and thought "no way." Why go through the trouble if disabling the ACARS system. That takes a little doing. No need for that if it was suicide.
Putin tells Bronco, “I can steal a Boeing 777 out of mid-air fag-boy”
Bronco tells Putin, “No you can’t”
The Strait of Malacca is the busiest shipping lane on the world. Last I sailed through there, 1980 or so, there were hundreds of ships lined up like rush hour.....I am most certain floating debris would have shown up by now.
What I want to know is this whole “Payne Stewart” theory, can this plane, with everyone on board dying from hypoxia, still fly, for five hours, and make those weird altitudes, and of course making turn after turn after turn.
Whenever I see Schiavo’s mug I remember TWA 800 this chick refuses for whatever reason to believe that even for a second that something fishy happened here..she parrots the same line “Mechanical Failure” over and over again
Nope. Auto Pilot is completely ruled out.
So we can rule out the hypoxia “Payne Stewart” theory that some have suggested may have happened..that everyone on board died due to decompression and the plane just kept on flying around til it crashed
Years ago, I was in a bar in south Florida. An older (retired) gentleman was solo at the bar. He told me he worked in the airline industry, though never specified, and from there we discussed aircrafts including my amateur interest. We spoke a solid hour, he told me he preferred the L-1011’s to all commercial airplanes but thought the DC-10 was the “ugliest” plane made. I enjoyed the conversation. He mentioned this Schiavo person and not in pleasant terms but her shameful correction to Hannity tonight was a simple reminder of how her conceit is apparent.
That is likely. I tend to think horrific failure and some pilot error or evil intentions....or shot down like the 1983 Korean Air Lines Flight 007 shoot down...
Hypoxia may have affected the passenger cabin as it is known the plane went above 45,000 ft.
If this was a planned takeover, the cockpit would have prepared for it.
My guess is that plane is down in Indonesia somewhere.
The United States will NEVER share her military knowledge to where this plane is without a joint international assessment.
Right now that may still be in play among others.
Imagine you were a devout muslim pilot and your
religion offered you a hundred million to deliver
a 777 to them some where? That’s a possibliity.
Another is that some how they were able to ship
an electronic device that would jam communications
and spoof the GPS to fly over the Indian ocean.
I’m not sayin it was Space Aliens...
But it was Space Aliens.
She’s a piece of work that’s for sure..notice they bring out all the clowns from the TWA investigation, even seen Kallstrom these past few days..its just like when a high profile person is involved in a criminal investigation, they bring out Marcia Clark, Chris Darden, and Robert Shapiro, mind as well be singing “Send in the clowns” when they appear on TV
the 1983 Korean Air Lines Flight 007 shoot down...
I always kinda thought they did that to take out
Larry McDonald before he could run for President...
I don’t know but it sounds like someone else other than the pilots were flying the plane when it jump up to 45,000, made the hard west turn, etc... Maybe a hi-jacker with some flying experience had control and thought they had enough fuel to get it across the Indian Ocean. Maybe passengers did not know what was going on at this point. (sleeping?) - Maybe they thought everything was fine or they were scared and trying to figure out how to storm the cockpit for those 3 to 4 hours. Some may have knew during those 3 to 4 hours that they were over water and that there no city lights in view, so they had time to figure out a plan to storm the cockpit.
So the climb to 45,000ft would have been done to cause the Hypoxia?
That was my early theory. Shot down, probably by Malaysia or China.
Just wait until the next one goes missing.
Didnt Flight 93 do the same thing, go to a high altitude and down again so that the passengers would be flying around the plane..or it could have been brought up so that the passengers would not be able to breathe, quick death, no longer a threat to the hijackers..I would also like to know, how far is Pakistan or Iran from this area, could the plane have flown to either location with the amount of fuel it had on board
This explains the climb to 45,000 ft. (as someone said who ever was flying the plane could prepare for the climb) http://www.langleyflyingschool.com/Pages/Human%20Factor—Hypoxia.html
