    Malaysian Flight 370

    Praying; especially for the families sake that they're able to piece together something. So much went wrong from the start. Why didn't the Thai airport contact Malaysia when MH370 didn't check in? Why didn't Malaysia's military check them out? Why did it take Malaysia so long to ask for help? Philip Wood's loved ones started a FB page for anyone interested. https://www.facebook.com/findingphilipwood370

    Malaysian Flight 370

    Search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 debris to resume in Indian Ocean MALAYSIAN authorities have revealed more about the final minutes of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and now say that it probably plunged into the ocean sometime between 8.11am and 9.15am on Saturday March 8. The new details, which were garnered from never before used technology, have helped trace the Boeing 777-200’s final deadly flight path. MH370 was last captured by satellite at 8.11am in a wide arc covering two massive northern and southern corridors. This was its last complete “handshake” with the Inmarsat satellite. After that, at 8.19am there was evidence of the jetliner making a partial handshake with the ground station. Then, sometime between 8.11am and 9.15am, it was no longer communicating with the ground station. Investigators have therefore concluded that MH370 disappeared and crashed into a remote area of the southern Indian Ocean during that time. By this time the jet would have been out of fuel. Authorities have previously said that at 8.11am the jetliner would have had about 30 minutes worth of fuel left

    Malaysian Flight 370

    They reported on CNN this morning before the family presser that they spotted green & orange debris; they just had to recover them. They said that life vests are orange; I assume the green were seats. The US pulled their ship until more was known; the US came back which tells me that a rumor that was posted on a board I go to was most likely true & that the presser today was preparing the families for what was coming next; evidence that they found wreckage. The post I'm referring to has been removed as it did not come from a news agency. The poster said they spoke to their Oz Navy friend who's hub was on the recovery mission; saying they were sure what was spotted was from the plane. I guess we'll see tomorrow. I'm not offering condolences until I see more. I pray that everyone went quickly; especially the innocent children & teens. I feel the pilot was more of a hero; I feel they were hijacked. Really wish they would release whether the left turn happened before the copilot said all right good night. They know due to radar.

    CNN Mentions FSX used by Malaysian Cpt.

    My opinion is they were hijacked. I think the captain is getting a bad rap because he enjoys playing flight sims. Big effing deal; my son plays train sims. I'm also not convinced deleted files have anything to do with him being guilty of hiding something either. I hope everyone is safe but I highly doubt it. I feel the captain put the plane in the water to stop whoever was behind it. Not sure if anyone posted this - I came here today after seeing this article Simulation Maker Responds to Conjecture on Disappearance of Flight 370 But in a statement posted on website of the simulator’s manufacturer, Precision Manuals Development Group, CEO Robert Randazzo said the pilot’s avid interest in flight simulation should not be construed as a sign that he was deliberately involved in altering the aircraft’s course. “As is always the case when something cannot be explained, there are many folks attempting to explain the event to the public using theories, guesswork and good, old-fashioned imagination,” he wrote. “Some of these commentators have focused on Captain Shah’s [cq] love of the flight simulation hobby as a suggestion that he may somehow have played a role in the disappearance of MH 370. Such wild conjecture is not only insulting to those of us who wear or have worn the stripes of a captain, but has the potential to be damaging to the flight simulation hobby.” Mr. Randazzo noted that Capt. Zaharie had used PMDG software but had no part in its development.

It will be big news until the plane is found & we will be hearing about everything in years to come.
