Missing MH370: Final 54 Minutes of Communication “Perfectly Routine”, Say Analysts
Malaysia Star ^ | Saturday March 22, 2014

Posted on 03/21/2014 10:04:08 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A purported transcript of the final 54 minutes of communication with the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 appears “perfectly routine”, say analysts.

According to The Telegraph, the transcript contains exchanges between copilot Fariq Abdul Hamid and air traffic controllers from before the flight took off until the final transmission.

It includes communications believed to be the last words of the 27-year-old co-pilot: “All right, good night”.

According to reports, nothing in the purported transcript suggests that anything unusual or untoward occurred before communications with the Boeing 777 ended.

The Malaysian government has been less than forthcoming. Why? There is a lot of money at stake. The father of the co pilot is a honcho in the Malaysian government. If it is shown that his son is the culprit, the government would fall. Malaysia is an oil state. Insiders are making huge amounts of money. If the government falls, not only will the money end but they would probably face prison.

Lithium-ion batteries caught fire... the pilot was protesting the sentencing of an opposition leader... it was a gold heist... every working part on the jet simultaneously stopped working and the plane sent seven hours gliding halfway to Antarctica...

What it absolutely, positively wasn't was anything to do with those two Iranians traveling together on stolen passports. We checked them out and they're, like, super-clean.

It’s possible, but I think it’s more likely they are overwhelmed.

I think that part of the world has its own Bermuda Triangle where ships & planes go missing as well.

I haven't heard this. What is your reference for this information?

I read somewhere (can’t remember) that the M govt had changed the timeline to indicate the sharp left turn happened before the last “good night” transmission.

Anybody seen that, and can you remember where?

Also, the left turn was initiated by 7 or 8 computer keystrokes. That doesn’t sound like an emergency turn. In an emergency, you grab the yoke and turn the plane.

He is described as a “high ranking official in Salangor state” in press reports. This is the wealthiest and most populous states of Malaysia.

He is a civil servant. Kinda like a dog catcher. Not exactly someone the Malaysian government is going out on a limb to protect.

Ya’ know, the flight was carrying my entire firearms collection in the cargo hold (dang it), but if I’d a knowed all the brouhaha this would cause, I’d a just planned a customary boating accident instead. Just saying.

I wonder if they can do any voice analysis to attempt to determine if there’s any unusual stress.

If they don’t find the plane, does the insurance company have to pay?

One thing will occur out of this episode. Westerners and Chinese...will just bypass Malaysian Air, and within three years...they will have to sell off and rename it....to bring customers back. Tourism wise....I think Malaysia took a big step down with the Chinese public.

All the turns were pre-programmed into the autopilot. The altitude changes were caused by a struggle for control of the plane. At some point the plane was depressurized killing all on board. With no one to fly the plane, it flew in a straight line for 7 hrs, ran out of fuel, and fell into the deep southern Indian Ocean.

A botched hijacking with the target being a building in Kuala Lumpur.

Someone mentioned a American cutrate airliner had to do that after one of its planes crashed in Miami.

Maybe, but 1:00 AM seems like an odd time to attack a building.

Darn shame, dagogo. Damn the luck. Hope the ATF/FBI/your local state police read this and take you off their list of homes to raid as a result. Ya know, since all of your firearms are lost at sea and all....
