    Doesn't give any new info, but solidifies Ron's claim that info out of Asia sucks. This one claims only two infants on board. Let's hope.....

    I can't decide if a plane crash would be a great way to go or a shit way. I think it may be great because a)hopefully you'd lose consciousness before the plane hit the ground so you wouldn't feel anything, and b) I can imagine that if you know death is totally inevitable, there may be some peace? Obviously, there's a whole bunch of stuff that would make it a terrible way to go, but we all have to go somehow.

    NOPE.

    I was on a connecting flight out of NC once. Sitting next to a butch lesbian. I tried to be friendly and she wasn't having it. STONE COLD. Reading some kind of porn in novel form. Five minutes in the air we DROPPED. I mean gripping the seat, people screaming, praying , stomach on the ceiling dropped. It seemed like forever. Then leveled out. She started babbling like " Lambchop" after that number. And the worst part was that the pilot was SILENT. No "Sorry folks.. Hit some turbulence. " nope. Not a word. He was shitting his pants. Had to be jet wash.
    Anyway. NOT a good way to go. Torture before hitting the ground / water.

    Uh oh.......

    BEIJING ? Malaysian officials investigating the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane Saturday said they were not ruling out terrorism ? or any other causes ? as reports emerged that two Europeans listed on the passenger manifest were not aboard and may have had their passports stolen.

    Vietnamese military aircraft participating in a search-and-rescue operation for the Boeing 777, which was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, had spotted two oil slicks in the waters off southern Vietnam, the Associated Press reported.

    The government said the slicks were each six miles to nine miles long and were consistent with the type that would be left by fuel from a crashed jetliner, the AP said.

    PHOTOS: Malaysia Airlines plane missing

    Malaysia?s director general of civil aviation told a news conference Saturday night that authorities had reviewed closed-circuit TV footage of passengers and their luggage and hadn?t seen anything of concern. But Prime Minister Najib Razak cautioned that it was "too early" to come to any conclusions, and other officials said nothing was being ruled out of consideration at this point.

    The plane was carrying 227 passengers and a dozen Malaysian crew members, the airline said. The biggest contingent ? 154 ? was from China and Taiwan.

    An initial passenger list posted at the Beijing airport, apparently by Chinese authorities, listed three U.S. passport holders: an adult, Philip Tallmadge Wood, and two children, Nicole Meng and Leo Meng.

    However, a*full manifest*published online Saturday evening by the airline listed the American passengers as Wood, age 51, Nicole Meng, age 4, and Yan Zhang, age 2.*

    Wood is believed to be an IBM employee who recently began working for the company in Kuala Lumpur after several years in its Beijing offices.*

    According to the airline, other passengers on the flight included 38 Malaysians, five Indians, seven Indonesians, six Australians, four French, two Ukranians, two Canadians and two New Zealanders. There were also a Russian, an Italian, a Dutch and an Austrian aboard, the airline said.

    However, shortly after the list was published on the airline?s website,*Italy?s ANSA news agency*reported that Luigi Maraldi, 37, who was listed on the manifest, was in fact not on the plane (link in Italian). The agency said he had phoned his family to say he was alive and well in Thailand.

    Austria?s APA news agency*made a similar report about an Austrian citizen listed on the passenger manifest, Christian Kozel, 30 (link in German). APA reported his passport was stolen about two years ago in Thailand.

    Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it lost contact with air traffic controllers around 2:40 a.m. local time Saturday, two hours after takeoff, the airline said.*

    The airline?s chief executive, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, told a news conference in Kuala Lumpur that there was no distress call or bad weather report from the pilots before the plane lost contact with air control 120 nautical miles (140 miles) off the east coast of Kota Bharu, Malaysia.

    As the search-and-rescue effort got underway, in addition to Vietnamese aircraft, China sent two ships to assist, state-run CCTV reported, while Singapore dispatched a C-130 aircraft. Malaysia sent three maritime enforcement ships, a navy vessel and three helicopters, a Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency official told Reuters.*

    Mikael Robertsson, cofounder of FlightRadar24, which tracks about 120,000 flights per day with 3,000 receivers around the world, said the last transmission it recorded from the flight was at 35,000 feet. While it?s possible the plane veered into an area too far away from receivers to track it, he said that was unlikely.

    ?In this case, we have quite good coverage,? he said. ?We had a very good stable signal and it just disappeared ?. I don?t want to speculate, but something very sudden happened.? FlightRadar representatives also said they believed the plane had lost radar contact about 40 minutes into the flight, not two hours as the airline said.

    Relatives of some of the missing passengers were brought from the Beijing Capital International Airport to a nearby hotel and were sequestered in a conference room on the second floor of the complex Saturday morning.

    Periodically, wails could be heard coming from inside the room, and several people emerged in the midafternoon, complaining that airline officials were not providing sufficient information. ?We are being treated like dogs!? one man yelled, pushing through a crowd of reporters.

    ?We are still trying to locate the current location of the flight based on the last known position of the aircraft,? the airline said in a statement. ?We are working with the international search and rescue teams in trying to locate the aircraft. So far, we have not received any emergency signals or distress messages.?*

    The airline said it was dispatching a ?go team? of caregivers and volunteers to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur late Saturday afternoon to assist family members of the passengers.

    State-run media in China said a delegation of 24 Chinese artists and calligraphers and their family members were aboard the flight.*

    PHOTOS: Malaysia Airlines plane missing

    The airline identified the pilot as Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, 53, who joined the airline in 1981 and had more than 18,000 hours of experience. The first officer was identified as Fariq Ab. Hamid, 27, who joined the airline in 2007 and had about 2,700 hours logged.

    The "focus of the airline is to work with the emergency responders and authorities and mobilize its full support," the airline said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected passengers and crew and their family members."

    Boeing said it was assembling a team to provide technical assistance to investigating authorities

    I don't really know much about planes but shouldn't they have found more than oil slicks by now? I very well might just be naive since we have the most technologically advanced military in the world lmao but seriously.

    I read this afternoon that finding the plane is not an easy task. In another crash in 2009 where an airbus 330 disappeared into the Atlantic Ocean, it took nearly two years to find the wreckage and the black box.

    You would think! But this snippet is what worries me the most. In addition to the experts saying that whatever happened was "sudden" and having two passengers with stolen passports on board.... It's possible it was a bombing.

    HONG KONG — As scoured the Gulf of Thailand early Sunday for a Malaysia Airlines jet with 239 people aboard, investigators examined the usual causes of such disappearances: bad weather, possible mechanical failures, pilot error. But the discovery that at least two passengerds were carrying stolen passports also raised the unsettling possibility of foul play.

    I get that. But I swear the dude made it seem like they were confident that it went down where they found the oil slicks. My statement was based ok that assumption. I get if they still literally have no idea where the plane disappeared why it would take a long time to find the wreckage but I assumed they thought it was where the oil slick is.

    Not to mention that they didn't go down in the Atlantic. It's a Gulf. Much more shallow.

    Now they say FOUR people had stolen/improper passports.

    Ugh... At least it sounds like whatever happened, it was over quickly.

    "Preliminary surveillance data" examined by the Pentagon suggests the missing Malaysia Airlines jet did not explode over the South China Sea, according to The New York Times.

    The newspaper cited a U.S. government official who spoke on the condition of anonymity as suggesting "a system that looks for flashes around the world" had not identified any sign of a blast. NBC News could not immediately confirm the report.

    More than 36 hours after the last contact with Flight MH370, officials said Sunday they were widening the search to cover vast swathes of sea around Malaysia and off Vietnam.

    What Happened to Malaysia Flight 370?
    Nightly News

    Among the 239 people aboard the Boeing 777-200ER were two passengers using stolen passports.

    U.S. officials told NBC News on Saturday they were investigating terrorism concerns.

    Pilots and aviation experts said an explosion on board appeared to be the likely cause of the disaster. The plane was at cruising altitude, the safest phase of flight, and likely would have been on autopilot.

    "It was either an explosion, lightning strike or severe decompression," a former Malaysia Airlines pilot told Reuters. "The 777 can fly after a lightning strike and even severe decompression. But with an explosion, there is no chance. It is over."

    No information on missing flight 'unusual'
    Disrupt with Karen Finney

    John Goglia, a former board member of the National Transportation Safety Board, said that the lack of a distress call suggested that the plane either experienced an explosive decompression or was destroyed by an explosive device.

    "It had to be quick because there was no communication," Goglia said. He said the false identities of the two passengers was "a big red flag".

    Looks like they're spotting debris now (snipped):


    KUALA LUMPUR—A Vietnamese search aircraft located fragments Sunday floating in waters off southern Vietnam that are suspected of coming from aMalaysia Airlines*jetliner that went missing a day earlier with 239 people on board.

    The fragments were believed to be a composite inner door and a piece of the tail, Vietnam's ministry of information and communication said in a posting on its website. They were located about 50 miles south-southwest of Tho Chu island.

    Interesting



    (CNN) - How can a Boeing 777-200ER passenger jet go missing for more than a day? Turns out, it's not so easy.


    That's not just because the state-of-the-art jetliner has a wing span of nearly 200 feet and a length of more than 209 feet. It's also because it's bristling with communications gear, including radios, automatic beacons, GPS and computer communications systems, according to CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest.

    In addition to carrying UHF and VHF radios, the planes -- which cost more than $250 million apiece -- are equipped with Aircraft Communications and Reporting System technology. Embedded in the plane's computers, it tells the airline how the aircraft is performing -- speed, fuel, thrust. "If anything fails, it will send a signal to Malaysia Airlines," Quest said.

    The debris was a false alarm (snipped ):


    One promising lead has turned out to be a dead end. A "strange object" spotted by a Singaporean search plane late Sunday afternoon is not debris from the missing jetliner, a U.S. official familiar with the issue told CNN on Sunday.

    A U.S. reconnaissance plane "thought it saw something like debris but it was a false alarm," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/09/world/...irlines-plane/

    They're shifting their focus to another area. I'm also having a hard time understanding how an entire plane full of people can just "poof " vanish. No beacon, no GPS, no transmissions, no computer? Nothing.

    Well.... Unless they went FAR off course over to the other side of Japan, I don't think the devil's sea is responsible.

    Not specifically the devil's sea, but this kind of stuff does happen. But from what I understand about the instruments this plane was equipped with they should be able to pinpoint exactly where they were when "whatever" knocked them offline. It shouldn't be the old needle in a haystack scene.
