Fishermen Plane Sighting a Tip or False Lead in MH370 Hunt?
ABC News via Yahoo News ^ | 18MAR2014 | Bob Woodruff

Fishermen from this village believe they may have seen the missing Malaysia Airlines flight on the night it disappeared flying low over the Gulf of Thailand.

It's not clear whether what they saw was flight MH370 or whether it is the latest in a string of false leads in the search for the missing plane, but if true it would suggest that the plane may have flown low to avoid radar, what is known as "terrain masking."

On March 8 flight MH370 disappeared from radar as it flew north over the Gulf of Thailand towards Vietnam en route to Beijing. Investigators believe it made a sharp turn to the west about the time it vanished from radar and lost contact with air traffic controllers.

It is unclear whether the plane the fishermen saw was the missing flight, but investigators have chased other tips that turned out to be false leads including an oil rig worker who saw something fall into the Gulf of Thailand that night, oil slicks, reports of floating luggage and what was believed to be a plane’s upturned life raft. All have been investigated and determined to be bogus.

Think I’ll trust Israel first to know the most information on the plane’s whereabouts.

According to NBC News, the programmed turn to the left was made at least 12 minutes BEFORE the Co-Pilot said “All Right Good Night” so there ya go

Did the Malaysian govt. accidentally shoot down an “unidentified” aircraft flying above (after their left turn) before knowing Flight 370 was missing?

the fisherman’s report came out early in the story, a few days after the plane was reported missing. Today’s news sounds like no one heard about it before.

Somali pirates bought the MH jet from the pilot with their oil tanker ransom millions.

It`s in Somalia coz it`s only 4000+ miles from Malaysia to Somalia.

The jet was on a beeline over Butter..Penang straight over the Maldives to Somalia.

I`1l betcha 5 rubles.

At this point, ANYTHING is possible..but why would the plane intentionally fly in a different direction to begin with, this was all done BEFORE the Co-Pilot did his final sign off, so maybe it was the co-pilot who pulled the strings here, maybe Zaharie Shah was already dead

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF IT'S POSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE TO HAVE HIDDEN INSIDE THE 777 EQUIPMENT BAY LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE COCKPIT? IT'S VERY ROOMY IN THERE AND WITH ACCESS TO JUST ABOUT EVERY AIRCRAFT SYSTEM!!!

A terrorist could've been hiding there before the aircraft departed, waiting to spring into action.. Wanna turn off ACARS? Just pull the circuit breaker knob OUT and.. DONE! Wanna cut COMM? Pull knob out, DONE.. NEXT?

Maybe the fisherman in the Maldives can get together with the oil rig worker from the South China Sea and they can figure out how the plane could be in two places at the same time 1000 miles apart.

Never thought of that. It’s like a Jack-In-The-Box but more accurately a Terrorist-In-A-Box! Play the tune of the engines just right and what a surprise you get!

Stuff like that happens. I remember spotting the ill fated hijacked TWA727 over the French Riviera and finding it odd. Made it to a modified Chuck Norris movie.

Clearly there’s been a press blackout on all the sightings placing the airplane over Paraguay.

Either them or the Indians shot it down. As good as any other theory.

That I do not know. Most likely he was up to no good. But that wouldn't change the Malaysians shooting down a plane they could not identify since they probably didn't know yet that Flight 370 dropped off the radar and never contacted Ho Chi Minh Center like they were suppose to do. Just a theory I've had for a day or so and especially since Malaysia has forbidden anybody else flying nearby to search for the missing plane. Something to hide? Maybe it's all innocent but 239 lives are at stake here... unless the Malaysian government already knows everyone is dead.

If he landed it in Somalia, they would have just taken the plane, and there would be a lot of ransom demands...
