Malaysian woman claims to have seen missing MH370 in the water near Andaman Islands
UK Daily Mail ^ | March 21, 2014 | Richard Shears

Posted on 03/21/2014 8:30:00 PM PDT by mtrott

As aircraft and ships continued to search for debris which might be that of the missing flight MH370 on Friday a Malaysian woman on a flight across the Indian Ocean claimed to have seen an aircraft in the water near the Andaman Islands on the day the jet disappeared.

The Kuala Lumpur wife was so convinced about what she saw at 2.30pm on March 8, several hours after MH370 vanished, that she filed an official report with police that very day - a full five days before the search for the plane was expanded to the area around the Andaman Islands.

This woman apparently claimed to have seen a plane in the water near the Andaman Islands while on a flight from India. At the time she said she saw the plane in the water, she had not heard the news that a plane was missing.

IMO, it would make much more sense for the plane to be where she says she saw it than that it would be half way to Antarctica. If they are not following up on her report, I don't understand why.

Seems odd you’d see a plane... in the water... and not say anything until now

Maybe they should just start reporting when someone claims to not have seen that plane.

You need to reread the second sentence that was posted.

True enough. Missed that. But why did it take so long to become public?

“a full five days before the search for the plane was expanded to the area around the Andaman Islands.”

This should have been headline news the day she reported it.

she reported it immediately but the stewardess told her to go to sleep. When her plane landed, she made a police report

Well, I haven't seen the plane.

Since yesterday morning, of course.

Yeah, I get that, but why after she reported it to the police, did this not become a big story like the Maldives fisherman. I mean, doesn’t it seem pretty credible?

Well, she stated she could not sleep in the plane, so she was looking out the window. She even told others on the plane she saw it, but they laughed her off and apparently didn’t look.

“Did you read it?”

I did. She claims to have seen something “silver” and “shiny” from 35k feet. Now, the MAH370 was neither silver nor shiny. It was predominantly flat white with some grey, red, and, blue. It would not have been particularly “shiny” from any altitude or angle. She also placed the airplane in the Andaman Islands area which has now been searched at least twice by Indian authorities who have not detected anything of note in the area.

This person thought they saw something large, silvery, and, shiny floating on the ocean two weeks ago. IF she really did, it’s gone by now. Most likely she didn’t and whatever she thought she saw was in illusion.

I beg to differ. Every time I’ve looked out of an airplane window on a bright, sunny day, any light colored objects just look super bright, and I could understand someone saying a white object like that plane looked “shiny”, especially against the dark blue background of 4000 foot deep seas. I actually think that is exactly how it would look.

How far away are the island for Australia?
From the area where the fisherman was?
From the island where the people heard/saw it fly over?

Who’s in charge? Who’s on first?

The Kuala Lumpur wife was so convinced about what she saw at 2.30pm

Wasn't this a night flight??? Isn't it dark outside in the Malaca Straits at 2:30pm??? If it is then how do you see a plane floating in the water in the dark???

1. The Andaman islands are relatively close to Malasia. The MH370 would have had to fly in circles for several hours to end up at that location.

2. If this woman is right then the satellite tracking data is wrong. I pick the tracking data.

This plane went down either north of Pakistan or west of Australia. Since as far as we know this aircraft was not equipped with a Star Trek standard cloaking device that would be required to avoid radar surveillance on the Northern route I vote for the far off the West coast of Australia scenario.

All these people are wrong. It's at the bottom of Lake Nokomis about two blocks from where I live.

Yeah, I understand what you are saying. But, just as I question the claim that the plane ever went up to 45,000 feet(because apparently the radar involved was not “altitude” sensing), I also am not convinced about the seven hour flight time either. But I concede that could be the case.

Now, I suppose it could also be possible that if the plane had made a “Sully” style landing near the Andamans, it could have floated for hours and emitted the ping to the satellite. This woman could have seen the plane partially submerged.

Also, the area she says she saw the plane IS in the arc they have been portraying as to where the plane could be.

She wasn’t convinced enough to defy her government and the airlines while for 7 days they were looking for it in the South China Sea.

She didn’t speak up and the police report she filed is probably backdated and falsified like everything else Malaysians have done here.

AND it was dark outside — making it impossible to see a plane in the water especially at 35,000 feet.

But by all means they should look everywhere after all the Malaysians have such credibility now.

I’m waiting for the story where it is found in the Bermuda Triangle.

Or, like my fav cover of National Enquirer, found on the dark side of the moon.

A partially submerged aircraft. Exquisite details from 7 miles above. Simply extraordinary visual skills.

Color me awestruck skeptical.

Why do you keep saying it was dark? The article clearly states her flight was later in the afternoon of March 8.

Also:

“The Kuala Lumpur wife was so convinced about what she saw at 2.30pm on March 8, several hours after MH370 vanished, that she filed an official report with police that very day” Why are you saying she waited for seven days?

Are the Andaman Islands near Fantasy Island? And did the plane look like this?

And did she see these two nearby?

So let me get this straight:

She says she saw a plane in the water 12 hours after it would have passed by there. So it would have had to be bobbing in the water for 12 hours for her to have seen it.

A Boeing 777 is not going to float for 12 hours.

The plane didn’t crash 12 hours earlier. That’s when it diverted.

It passed through over the Andaman Sea where this woman claims to have seen it 12 hours earlier between 2:11 and 3:11.

So if it had gone down in that area then it would have gone down at that time — 12 hours earlier.

Faulty logic to assume it was going someplace in particular. The plane could have also flown around in circles over the Bay of Bengal for many hours.

Maybe it’s just my old eyes, but I seriously doubt I could make out and ID an object @ 35,000 ft / 6 miles up.

. . . whatever she thought saw was an illusion!

That's darn right, this is at 35,000 feet you can't recognize if any building in land nor ship in the water below,.
