Skip to comments.Missing jet WAS carrying highly flammable lithium batteries: CEO of Malaysian Airlines
Posted on 03/21/2014 4:05:52 PM PDT by dynachrome
Malaysian Airlines today confirmed that flight MH370 had been carrying highly flammable lithium-ion batteries in its cargo hold, re-igniting speculation that a fire may have caused its disappearance.
The admission by CEO Ahmad Jauhari comes four days after he denied the aircraft was carrying any dangerous items and nearly two weeks after the plane went missing.
He said the authorities were investigating the cargo, but did not regard the batteries as hazardous - despite the law dictating they are classed as such - because they were packaged according to safety regulations.

Missing jet WAS carrying highly flammable lithium batteries: CEO of Malaysian Airlines finally admits to dangerous cargo four days after DENYING it
I knew this last week when one of the horde of analysts mentioned it.
Sigh. another day, another theory.
Malaysian authorities denying it is pretty bizarre, though
LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL c’mon man r u kidding me? Flammable gas onboard..... beans served for snack. Plane carrying huge amounts of Kerosene (in it’s wings).
This plane was HIJACKED. This is the ONE thing we know for sure. Why? Where is it? We don’t know, but it wasn’t some lithium battery BS.
I think it’s a cover for more sinister stuff going on.
the lithium batteries are very dangerous — if they are not securely restrained, they will go into the cockpit and program a new route into the flight management computer and switch off the transponder
The media has ignored it but the info was out there.
(From the 14th) PRBA - The Rechargeable Battery Association Statement on Malaysian Air Flight MH370
SO they ignited, turned off the transponders, killed the crew and passenger?
And then the burning plane flew for 7 hours?
Let me add:
Missing jet WAS carrying highly flammable lithium
Missing jet WAS carrying a large amount of highly flammable clothing in it’s cargo hold. Much of this clothing was concealed in suitcases.
I think it probably was hijacked also, but...
(From one of my hobbies):
Totally not germane to the known facts.
Yeah. It just irritates me that one of the FOX analysts said it on air last week and tonight they call it breaking news.
As far as the Malaysians are concerned, they appear to be terrified to say or do anything.
I heard it also had a motorcycle in the cargo that had a car tire mounted on the rear.
Almost every biker forum I have dropped in on has a bunch of yahoos claiming a car tire on a bike is a ticking time bomb.
Mr. Airplane Man:
“You are so full of chit yer eyes are.....well.....”
You will now make any outrageous claim to give cover for you and your employees incompetence to ensure something like this could never happen.
You, are cruel, inhumane and soul less to dangle a dppleganger in front of the families.
You should be assuaging them best you can and helping them forward with their lives.
May you accidentally fall into a punji pit filled with leeches and scorpions
Can’t they be stopped at preboarding?!!!!
The first thing you do when a fire breaks out is to turn off the transponders and turn west and fly for 4 hours.
A flying sombrero???
They’re all powered by greenhouse-gas-generating fossil fuels!!!
He said this, then immediately went home with his wife, Morgan Fairchild.
Are you the one making those great videos?
Li-ion batteries normally are much more resistant to ignition than li-poly, but flame-ups CAN occur, like the notorious B-787.
The li-poly type, OTOH, can puff up and spit fire (not an actual explosion) at the drop of a hat. It is absolutely guaranteed with sustained over-charge.
IIRC, a pilot was interviewed who claimed that there was a fire on the plane, at which point the pilot did his best at maneuvering to deprive it of oxygen, then made a left hand turn toward the nearest airport. He speculated that smoke overwhelmed the interior and the plane was then on autopilot, when it flew for four hours and then into the ocean. This theory does sound plausible to me, but it may or may not be correct.
They're very friendly and can talk their way past most security.
LOL! The next thing we are going to hear is the pilot wanted to keep the fire secret, broadcast ‘Good night,’ diverted course during the transition zone to Vietnam air space, and turned off ACARS and the transponder .
No, but I do own nearly identical batteries.
That theory would be plausible if the fact that the plane did the westerly turn 12 minutes BEFORE the last radio contact with the plane where the co-pilot said “Alright good night” unless the pilots were psychics and saw this supposed fire coming in a premonition this theory does not make sense..now if the turn was made AFTER the last radio contact I might be willing to believe the smoke in the cockpit theory
Yep, pilots were Nostradamus, saw the fire coming..it was a vision, a vision they saw in their heads in advance..damn, if only I could talk to them and get lotto numbers
More BS and a waste of time. Where is the airplane?
“highly flammable lithium batteries”
First off, Lithium ion batteries are not “highly flammable”. They happen to hold a lot of energy in a small space, but so does jet fuel. For that matter, aluminum and chlorates make one hell of an explosion.
Yes, lithium ion batteries can be dangerous, but not if they are shipped properly.
Eveel lil bass turd.
Gives me the hinkeys.
They jus kinda sneak up on yuh ....
It’s the kids. Yeah, the kids. No more in flight entertainment.
(That sucked. Thought it’d get funny as I typed. oh well)
Lithium batteries did not bring down the flight no matter what the lawyers and their shills will want to claim.
Every laptop and cell phone in the cabin probably had a Li-ion battery in it.
And if you want to say there was a fire....there still wouldn't be any reason to turn off the transponder etc etc.
Are they repeat offenders??
If so then charge them and put them away where they belong.
Wouldn’t be surprised if it was carrying a couple of “suitcases” and I think they landed someplace. Where????
I don’t doubt the CEO of Malaysia airlines would claim there were snakes on the plane if he thought it would deflect from their massive incompetence.
I’d rather get on an airplane with lithium batteries in it than Muslims in it. At least batteries don’t get ‘sudden Jihadi syndrome’.
Maybe it was the absence of lithium that was the problem. The pilot may have been bipolar and off his lithium.
“SO they ignited, turned off the transponders, killed the crew and passenger?
And then the burning plane flew for 7 hours?”
Perfect analysis, and just about what I was going to post. If the plane flew for many hours after diving below radar, that points to exactly one thing - a stolen plane. I’m mainly curious about what happened to the passengers at this point.
So thats why the pilots turned off the transponders and changed course for 5 plus hours. Yeh thats the ticket! :-)
Every jet is carrying lithium batteries in its hold, because people simply leave them in their luggage and it’s often not detected when they scan the bags.
Sorry, but the story where the plane mysteriously caught fire, nobody was able to communicate, the pilots and the entire crew and passengers were dead immediately is even weirder than the center fuel tank explanation. Also, there was another flight engineer in the cabin (as a passenger), so surely somebody could have communicated with the ground.
Did the center fuel tank in Flight 800 blow up? Of course. But that was after it was hit by a missile or a bomb.
Was there a fire on this flight? I don’t think so, because there were certainly enough people who could have communicated something to somebody somewhere.
