According to the Malaysians there is no MH370 because there was no MH370 —

“BREAKING NEWS — Malaysian Flight MH370 has suffered a double indignity and has disappeared a second time — this time from the Kuala Lumpur ATC Transcript:”

Did they find it the first time? How does it disappear twice?

First physically and then literally/historically.

They are removing “MH370” from all their records and transcripts and substituting “MAS370” or “Malaysian370” for it.

Pretty soon when they are asked a question about “MH370”, they’ll say “what??” — what’s that.

They mean the same thing. MH is the IATA designation for Malaysian Airlines and MAS is the ICAO designation.

Like we needed an expert to tell us the Malaysian government is hiding something because they have been caught in yet another misleading piece of information.

Next, we will find that the plane went north instead of south.

And if that is so, we better find it in a hurry, because that is a far more dangerous situation for the wold than the flying south to Anarctica scenario.

So then what is the purpose in changing it’s designation now???

Everybody in the world is searching for a plane known internationally as “MH370” — not “MAS370”.

It is known and being searched for under it’s IATA designation.

And since when do you go back and alter a pilot’s final transmission adn its IATA designation in the process???

Here is the official Malaysian trasncript they released 3 weeks ago:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/malaysia/10714907/Revealed-the-final-54-minutes-of-communication-from-MH370.html

In the trasncript 3 weeks later the “MH370” has disappeared entirely.

Why would that be and how could that be if that is how the plane was known on that night and by the searchers since then???

Malaysian Airlines and the Malaysian govt are both guilty of withholding information and changing their story throughout this whole process. Some of that misleading information borders on a coverup. This isn’t one of those things. Changing the flight designation from MH to MAS is not important all things considered. It could be as simple as putting out a transcript from investigators who chose to use the alternate designation. It’s nothing to get excited about. The media will still refer to it as MH.

So it's okay for investigators to "alter" evidence???

Were they "altering" it then or are they "altering" it now -- or both???

You can dive as far down that conspiracy hole as you like. I’m telling you it’s not important. You can choose to ignore that and wear all the tinfoil you want.

So then why have we been looking for MH370???

And who should we be looking for now — MH370 or MAS370???

Should we go back in all the articles on FR and now change the Keyword from MH370 to MAS370???

http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/mh370/index?tab=articles

What is the purpose of the change???

It’s no different than US papers using ‘nautical miles’ vs. overseas newspapers using ‘kilometers’...

It’s a nonissue. MH370 is correct.

Just keep in mind MAS370 when doing Boolean searches for overseas news...

It sure was important enough for the Malaysians to make the change and even go back and alter the ATC transcript to do so.

I don’t think you are understanding what is being said. MH370 and MAS370 is the exact same thing. It would be like a judge calling a defendant “Mr. Gordon” in one sentence and “Mr. John Gordon” in the next. Did he alter evidence? Clearly a different name.
The two designations are speaking of the exact same airplane. Nothing here. Remove the tinfoil hat. Non-issue.

However this turns out, the biggest outrage is that a huge jet with hundreds of passengers can be lost or hidden for so long.

I fully get that —

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICAO_airline_designator#ICAO_airline_designator

But did the pilot of the plane say to ATC “This is MH370”? or did he say “This is MAS370”?

If he said the former then why is the transcript being changed to the latter now??? are they also going back to change the audio as well???

and is that what you do in the middle of an investigation???

My guess is the pilot and ATC said “Malaysia 370”, not MAS or MH (it would be too cumbersome to say the letters each time. The the British Airways concordes identified themselves as “Speedy Bird”, not “British Airways”, “BA”, “BA Concorde”, “Concorde”, or anything else. Each airline has it’s own self identification code. Every pilot or controller who heard “Speedy Bird” knew it was a BA Concorde (as opposed to any other Concorde or any other BA plane). Someone (Southwest?) identifies as “Cactus” in the US. The larger United planes all go by “United Heavy”. My guess is that the people doing the transcript shortened it for the sake of brevity in typing.

When my husband flew our Cessna (before we sold it), he used to identify himself as “Cessna 172 N13723”, but after that the controllers would just call him “23” if he was the only tail number ending in 23. If another “23” came online, they’d call him “13723” or “Cessna 23” even in the same flight.

So, not a surprise that each different location called the plane something different, and my bet is that the pilot was saying “Malaysia 370” each time.

According to the FAA’s offical list here, the pilot would have referred to himself as “Malaysian”.

Another question re the transcript —

Is it just me or does it appear that there are some words missing from the 01:01:19 and 01:08:00 transmission from ATC to the plane???

like maybe a question mark? —

or why aren’t you responding —

or what do you mean by “maintaining level three five zero” we’re measuring you at 390 and climbing???.

It looks to me like at 01:01:14 MH370 just gave a status report “Hi ATC, I’m MH 370 and we’re still maintaining 35,000 feet.” At 01:01:19, ATC just acknowledged that they got the transmission. “Ok, MH370”. If the pilot is just reporting a status and there is no issue or change, ATC will just say your flight number or call sign. They try to keep the talk to a minimum.

At 01:07:55 and 01:08:00, the same thing happens. MH370 just checks in and reminds ATC “hey, we’re out here, and we’re at 35,000 feet”. At 01:19:24, they reach the end of the airspace, so ATC instructs them to change frequency and contact the next controller.

I’m just the wife of an aviation nut and IFR pilot (with ATC friends), but looks normal based on what I’ve experienced when flying with the hubby.
