Posted on 03/17/2014 3:01:29 PM PDT by robowombat
The Malaysian government reportedly is investigating the possibility that missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 avoided radar detection and landed in Pakistan near the Afghanistan border inside Taliban-controlled territory, according to the UK Independent . . . investigators confiscated a homemade flight simulator from the pilots home to see if it reveals any useful information . . . the Malaysian foreign minister told reporters that Malaysia asked several Asian countries for assistance in its investigation, including Pakistan . . . Pakistan dismissed the idea that a Boeing 777 could land undetected inside the country but promised to work with the Malaysian government in its search for the missing plane . . . a LIGNET analyst received information from a source at Boeing that the company believes the plane did land in Pakistan . . . Israel is taking the possibility of a terrorist attack seriously by mobilizing air defenses and scrutinizing approaching civilian aircraft, according to the Times of Israel . . . a Boeing 777 requires a lengthy, 7,500-foot runway, and Pakistan has many of them, meaning Flight 370 could conceivably be hidden in a hangar inside the country . . . U.S. surveillance of the area may be able to shed light on the theory through satellite imagery or signals intelligence.
Maybe they are getting their ideas off of here. lol
Thank you for the salt - I am not familiar with the source.
Different sources keep saying it landed, but there is a contingent of FReepers that insist it crashed into the ocean without a trace of debris or other evidence.
Sounds like a hard place to land.
gonna need a really LONG runway - I doubt dirt is gonna do
I am certainly ready for this plane to turn up someplace!
Pakistan has shown many times just how duplicitous they can be but this plane was from a fellow Muslim country so I doubt it. Also I doubt there are any airfields in that part of Pakistan which could handle one of those planes.
I would keep my eyes on Israel - nothing goes on without them being “in the loop” or they’d have been wiped out long ago.
I am strongly in the camp that believes that I don’t know what happened with the plane.
Pinging all y’all to this one ; take with (>) a grain of salt till get second-source.
They didn't think a SEAL team could, either.
Hey Boeing, I’m calling from Al Queda, Pakistan.
You got any oil filters and brake pads for a 2002
There is some debris but the region is so vast that searching for a needle in a haystack would be easier.
Hard to believe that of the 239 cell phones on the plane, even with dead owners; not one has pinged on the ground or on the way to the ground.
There are some heavyweights behind this organization:
Advisory Board Members
General Michael V. Hayden, USAF (ret.)
Ambassador John Bolton
Congressman Peter Hoekstra
Ambassador Otto Reich
Talbott Bryan Maxey
Ambassador Faith Ryan Whittlesey
Mark A. Groombridge
Lisa M. Ruth
I thought the 777 never “pinged” that its wheels were down...
