UPDATE: Contrary to popular opinion, Flight 370’s fate is unlike anything in aviation history.
UPDATE: Vietnam is still heavily involved in the search efforts after scaling back a day or so ago due to lack of info coming out of Malaysia.
UPDATE: Malaysian officials send one plane to search area noted by Chinese satellite images. Report “nothing to see here. Move along“
UPDATE: Contrary to claims made by Malaysian officials, the Chinese seem to stand by their satellite images released on Weds. saying they are still investigating them.
UPDATE: “Acting Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said that Rolls-Royce and Boeing, the maker of the Boeing 777, had denied the report, according to the AP.” TIME
From day one, the Malaysian military has been interested in only one thing: widening the search area for the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.
“But on Sunday, Malaysia’s defense minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, added a confusing twist, saying the plane might have gone down west of the Malaysian peninsula. “We are looking at the possibility of an aircraft air turnback,” he said without elaborating whether the plane might have changed course for mechanical reasons or a hijacking, or why the authorities suspected the plane might have reversed course.” March 8 New York Times
That announcement of theirs came a day after Vietnamese rescue efforts detected what they thought was a piece of the plane floating near the area the plane dropped off radar and an oil slick which could have indicated the location of the crash and on the same day that an eyewitness on an oil rig sent an email full of details claiming he believes he saw the plane, burning in the sky, go down into the ocean.
Today, with the help of various unnamed sources from defense contractors Boeing and Rolls Royce and with the help of the Wall Street Journal, that search area now comprises about a tenth of the globe while leaving the plane itself as “missing” till the next 9/11 is needed.
And we are supposed to believe that a massive 777 flew for an additional 4 hours through various airspaces of various nations… and not a single one of them picked it up on their radar? Why did our military spend so much money on stealth fighters if a flying submarine can evade radar so easily? Answer: because it can’t.
U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky.

To give you an idea of what this does to the search area…
Keep in mind this is a day after China released detailed satellite photos which should have promised to narrow the search field quite a bit.
Let’s take a look at the source of this information, shall we?
- “one person familiar with the matter.”
- “according to this person“
- ” A Boeing executive who declined to be named“
- ” a Rolls-Royce representative“
- “a Rolls-Royce executive who declined to be named“
- “one person familiar with the system”
I wonder why it is that no Boeing or Rolls Royce executive wishes to have their name associated with this new ground breaking information regarding the whereabouts of all those missing passengers? I wonder why the Wall Street Journal is so ready to write articles based on testimony given by so many secretive “experts”. Makes you kinda wonder, huh?
Just for the record, Rolls Royce is a United Kingdom company. The UK is part of the Five Power Defence Arrangements Integrated Area Defence System for Malaysia and Singapore, which is located at RMAF Butterworth air force base which just happens to be where that blip which was tracked by the Malaysian air force was headed.
So yesterday, China tries to help with satellite photos that may or may not be part of Flight 370 (don’t be stupid.. of course there are parts of the plane that are that large). Those jive with:
- last transponder location
- original oil slick and debris sighting
- oil rig witness’s testimony
And today we have secret evidence being provided by a British company which expands the search area exponentially, pretty much guaranteeing the fact that the search will be called off without finding anything.
I take you back to the TWA Flight 800 documentary when one of the passengers stated that during the search for his loved one, he and other family members started to come to the conclusion that it seemed the authorities (FBI mainly) were creating a narrative rather than searching for the truth.
Here’s another little aspect of that Wall Street Journal story you should be made aware of…
At one briefing, according to this person, officials were told investigators are actively pursuing the notion that the plane was diverted “with the intention of using it later for another purpose.” WSJ
Never let a good crisis go to waste, right? That’s how they see it isn’t it?
Theory: One of the members of the Five Power Defense Agreement countries accidentally shoots down an airliner (then the drone or fighter jet returns to Butterworth as the blip the military used to distract us the first time) and they know damn well after TWA Flight 800 that they can’t get away with claiming it was a mysterious “spark in the center fuel tank” so they determine it’s best if the plane is never found. But that becomes difficult as Vietnam and China don’t seem to be on the same page (which is why Vietnam and China are both angry as hell at this ‘investigation”) and keep turning up clues which would normally reduce the search area in a real plane crash investigation. So every time they do something that doesn’t help Malaysian authorities divert the search into the wrong location, someone has to come along with “new information” which widens the search area and now it is so large it couldn’t possibly be searched. Well, at that point, someone in our intelligence services comes to figure out, “what if the plane is never found? We could then use it for another purpose. It could just “turn up” flying into a stadium or another building that needs to be demoed.”
Ah. It’s a theory anyway.
