Thailand Gives Radar Data 10 Days After Plane Lost
AP ^ | March 18, 2014 | THANYARAT DOKSONE

Thailand's military said Tuesday that its radar detected a plane that may have been Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 just minutes after the jetliner's communications went down, and that it didn't share the information with Malaysia earlier because it wasn't specifically asked for it.

A twisting flight path described Tuesday by Thai air force spokesman Air Vice Marshal Montol Suchookorn took the plane to the Strait of Malacca, which is where Malaysian radar tracked Flight 370 early March 8. But Montol said the Thai military doesn't know whether it detected the same plane.

Montol said that at 1:28 a.m., Thai military radar “was able to detect a signal, which was not a normal signal, of a plane flying in the direction opposite from the MH370 plane,” back toward Kuala Lumpur. The plane later turned right, toward Butterworth, a Malaysian city along the Strait of Malacca. The radar signal was infrequent and did not include any data such as the flight number.

He said he didn’t know exactly when Thai radar last detected the plane. Malaysian officials have said Flight 370 was last detected by their own military radar at 2:14 a.m.

Thailand (southern provinces by Malaysia) and Malaysia have problems.

Maybe it headed north?

“Not a normal signal”
Is right up there with
“Noise and mumbled response “
When other plane tried to contact them

Where is this located in relationship to the arc?

And where in relation to the first turn to the left, which had them going across the skinny neck of land and towards the straits.

Trying to figure in that “tire fire” possibility that was mentioned on one of the other threads.

That roughly matches what we already know about the flight path.

From the article:

“....and that it didn’t share the information with Malaysia earlier because it wasn’t specifically asked for it. ...”

That’s all they can say is “well, y’all didn’t ASK”

Sheesh.

But if those two countries have “problems “ with one another, it would explain the delay.

I still say it will be found in the Malacca Strait.

These people are idiots. Makes me reconsider taking a flight anywhere near the Pacific.

BREAKING NEWS

People living in the Maldives claim to have seen a “low flying jet” going over one of the islands on the morning of the disappearance of flight MH370.

Local website Haveeru says several residents report the sighting at around 6.15am on March 8.

They said that it was a white aircraft, with red stripes across it – which would roughly match a Malaysia Airlines aircraft.

“I’ve never seen a jet flying so low over our island before. We’ve seen seaplanes, but I’m sure that this was not one of those. I could even make out the doors on the plane clearly,” said an eyewitness.

“It’s not just me either, several other residents have reported seeing the exact same thing. Some people got out of their houses to see what was causing the tremendous noise too.”

How incredible would it be for sorass to pay each pilot 1million to just drive around for a while. It takes the media focus off cancer patients dying from 0bamacare, and d-rats losing elections and the low polls.....
