Missing Malaysian Flight

Surprised no thread on this.....

Plane went missing with 200+ people on board on its way to Beijing. One minute they were fine, next minute they lost all contact near Vietnam.
For 12 hours they had no idea or information on where the plane was. Was even some reports that it had landed somewhere.

Vietnam air force jets found an oil slick in the ocean on its route.

Regardless, sad story.

2nd 777 crash within a year.

One of my biggest irrational fears is dying in a plane crash.

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

what is the state of that plane once everyone in the cabin realises what is going to happen?

and how does a plane just disappear in 2014?

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

having the captain come on and say we are going down and knowing you are over the ocean has to be scariest moment ever. I would give myself maybe a 2% chance of living at that point

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

One my local news stations had an expert on a few minutes ago, and he basically said, for a trained pilot not to send out a distress call would require an instant major malfunction (for example, the plane exploded) or someone interfering with the pilot and preventing him from sending out a distress call.

Maybe hijackers stole passports to get on?

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

The part that strikes me as odd is that it was in the middle of the flight. Usually problems occur at take off, and occasionally at landing. I am always a bit nervous the first 10 min of a flight, but relax when I am in the air.

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

After the airline released a manifest, Austria denied that one of its citizens was onboard the flight as the list stated. The Austrian citizen was safe and sound, and his passport had been stolen two years ago, Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Weiss told CNN.
Similarly, Italy's foreign ministry confirmed that no Italians were onboard MH370, even though an Italian was listed on the manifest. Malaysian officials said they were aware of reports that the Italian's passport was also stolen, but had not confirmed it.

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

Plane 'crashes' over the ocean, at a time when planes rarely crash, w 2 people flying w stolen passports.


This sounds like a common core math problem... Think the answer is 'bomb'.


Hope not..

Re: Missing Malaysian Flight

Lets say no bomb, but something went wrong and it went down. How quickly would it sink? I think back to the Hudson River thing, and that plane stayed a float. It's weird that they haven't found anything.

out in the vast ocean with no one to immediately respond......it could have floated for a while if the pilot was able to put it down as nicely as the hudson river pilot did. maybe thats why there is no debris field.....because it floated, but then sank. but on the other hand...there was no distress signal at all and if they had put the plane down they wouldve at least had time to call out.

The flight that disappeared going from Rio to France took two years to find the plane. This could be another situation like that.

that is crazy to me. Sometimes people with a lot of money can hire a plane to fall out of the sky and fill it with dead bodies. That is when things get real spooky

Maybe this is another situation like the Ethiopian Airlines hijacking from a couple of weeks ago. Co-Pilot hijacks the plane.
