  • Malaysian Airliner Disappearance. I got questions...

    ...and I know theres a few people here who are pretty darn knowledgeable about aviaiton

    I read several articles and watched a couple clips and the official word seems to be that they dont know what they dont know yet

    Are there any theories being tossed about around the water cooler in the pilot/aviation world?

    What with this story that they made a U-turn?

    Is the fake passports a red flag or are they a common annoyance on international flights? Would two fakes on the same flight be common?

    Finally, tell me your educated guess of what happened cuz I got no idea

    I read an article that said two fakes on the same flight would be extremely rare.

      As of yet nobody has a clue.

      The two passengers flying to Amsterdam with fake passports were together. The tickets were bought through Thailand and were just one serial number apart. The Passports were both stolen in Thailand a couple of years ago. I just have read it might be relaead that there were 3 more false passport travellers on the plane also. But there are so much specuation with this whole thing who knows as of yet until official info is released.

        I guess the standards are a bit different in that part of the world, but I find it hard to comprehend how a plane just disappears without a trace. Considering all the interests in the South China Sea, one would think that area would be pretty heavily monitored.

          I haven't ruled anything in or out yet, but I find it strange that if it was terrorism that no organization has stepped forward and taken credit for this act. It ain't terrorism if you don't know somebody did it. Until then it's just an unexplained crash.

            With both passports likely held by Chinese nationals it is less likely to be terrorism as it is illegal migration, which is more common then the Chinese will admit to.

              That's my uneducated guess.

                It took three days to find debris from the Air France 447 crash. In spite of technology the ocean is still a big place.

                Modern airliners have automated communications with maintenance facilities that monitor conditions real time. The function is called ACARS. There were no ACARS messages sent by Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after the point that it disappeared from radar, which suggests a violent and immediate incident. By comparison, AF 447 transmitted ACARS information during its descent into the ocean.

                  I haven't seen where this happened on a map but is it possible that somebody's military mistook it as hostile and shot it down?

                    I think it was way past any nations' coastline.

                    It was 2 hours into the flight so I would guess they were cruising along in the same line that they all fly in too

                    Someone here knows the proper term for that

                      I read that the same airplane suffered some wingtip damage when it scraped the tail of another airliner while taxiing a while back. It passed post-repair inspections, but it can make one wonder about an undetected crack or other fatigue damage in the wing causing a structural failure.

                        no radar in the supposed area. Planes report positions, transponders relay etc.

                        TD really?

                        It is a big area, many things are possible. Forget finding anybody alive, just try to find it and figure out what went wrong. I'd like to know the maintenance capabilities of this airline. Cutting corners are a major problem with the far east non anglised world. Take Asianas and So Korea airlines for a recent display of incompetence.

                            These shoot down lines are too much.

                              Okay.

                              I admitted my opinion was uneducated and that I was uninformed and I asked a question. Its not exactly like I was throwing out a conspiracy theory.
