Signals weren’t from Malaysia airliner after all

The mystery surrounding the Malaysian airliner that seemingly disappeared into thin air seemed to have been solved when searchers announced that they had detected pings from the airplane’s black box in the Indian Ocean.  But now, after a large-scale search of the area, searchers are saying that the pings weren’t from the aircraft after all.   The mystery of the disappearing airliner remains.

Evidence the Malaysian plane went down

The Malaysian government cited new satellite evidence that indicates the missing airliner crashed into the Indian Ocean.  Officials presented this information in a definitive way and notified the families of the passengers that there were no survivors.  But mysteries remain. [Read more...]

The mystery of the missing cell phone calls

A related mystery in the case of the missing airliner.  Whatever happened, why didn’t–or haven’t–any of the 239 people on board call somebody on their cell phones? [Read more...]

The missing plane kept flying

The plot thickens in the mystery of the missing Boeing 777.  After the transponder went silent, automatic signals from the plane’s engines kept functioning for several more hours, revealing abrupt changes in course and altitude.  Then those shut off, but the satellite that receives the data kept its “handshake” with the plane.  That, plus a couple of possible radar sightings from the Malaysian military suggest the plane may have stayed in the air for 7 hours.

Investigators are now saying that all of this can only be accounted for  by “deliberate action” from the cockpit.   That means the plane was hijacked or stolen by a crew member.  There are countless little islands with WWII-era landing fields that could hide the plane.  This means that someone has 239 hostages, if they are still alive.  And that someone has a massive flying weapon.

UPDATE:  The pilot is looking really suspicious.

The mystery of the missing Boeing 777

On Saturday, Malaysian Airlines flight 370, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers, just vanished.  As of right now, no one has found any debris.  An oil slick that was slighted turned out to be ship fuel.  The sea is shallow.  But still, nothing.

Terrorism is an obvious explanation.  Four passengers were carrying stolen passports.  They have been identified as Iranians, but sources say they were using the passports in an immigration scheme, not terrorism.  But who knows?  Some suspect a missile attack, possibly from North Korea.  But satellite surveillance detected no explosion.  Some are saying the plane was just stolen, to be used in a later 9-11 style attack.

Surely the intense searching will find something soon.  But right now, it’s a mystery. [Read more...]
