What do you think happened to the plane that left Malaysia?

Asked by Eggie (5591points) March 11th, 2014

I was looking at the news and a plane that left Malaysia just disappeared without a trace. Does anyone here has any ideas of what happened to it? Are aliens involved?

Very strange. But I thought satellites are supposed to be able to solve this problem.

Satellites don’t track every plane in the air all the time. The peculiar thing is that there was never any kind of transponder or beacon signal from the plane. Most transponders on planes are automatic and the beacons turn on when they get water on them. @Eggie‘s comment about aliens ( from outer space ) ....

@Eggie: “Are aliens involved?”

It’s more sinister.
Malaysia has 8 letters. Flight 370 disappeared on March 8th. Malaysia is close to Malia (Obama), who was born in 1998. Obama was first elected in 2008. Notice all of the eights?

There is the fake passports (the second person is not identified) , the turning around of the plane, no may day call, the tranasponder being turned off. Foul play or not so much?

flo's avatar

Maybe it went into a cave with a runway.

There is currently no evidence that we aliens are involved.

Water landing.

You’re kidding, right? Right?

Pretty much anything that would cause it to explode or disintegrate. I watch Air Crash Investigation a lot and this sort of thing is pretty common.

Stolen and Lost Travel Documents – holds information on more than 40 million travel documents reported lost or stolen by 167 countries.

The big left turn makes sense. They may have been looking in the wrong place for the wreckage.

It was Hijacked.
If it crashed into the ground or ocean beacons would have automatically been activated. THe fact that the plane lost contact with radar….an hour and a half later the military still found traces of the plane but way off track. 2 days later passengers cell phones still received phone calls up to noon today when they stopped.

A hijack is the last thing the powers that be want to cop to until the plane and status of passengers and crew is fact.

Perhaps it flew into a parallel universe vie a worm hole in the space/time continuum and it landed 100 million year ago somewhere on Mars.

I think it crashed. In the ocean.

Hiding in a cloud, waiting for April fools day, gotta be.

The CIA was quoted today saying “not to rule out terrorism” and now there is this report from a Vietnamese oil rig worker who said he saw the plane go down in flames.

ragingloli's avatar

The CIA blew up the plane.

cutiepi92's avatar

@ragingloli blew it up Scandal style. It was B613 lol.

Cruiser's avatar

They reported today that data they received shows the engines kept running for 5 more hours and at what altitude but not which directions and according to Sully he said that opens up a whole new massive search area.

AshlynM's avatar

No idea but pretty sure it crashed. Didn’t the same thing happen a few years ago, a plane went missing but eventually it was found with no survivors?

alphabetpony92's avatar

I don’t know, but I am fascinated by the story.

PS. Yes I did think of the alien theory initially, I still haven’t let go of it.

alphabetpony92's avatar

@talljasperman I hope so, I hoped it was an emergency landing but it isn’t looking so positive so far. It isn’t looking like anything so far, lol.

Very weird. If it was skyjacked by terrorists, where would they hide a Boeing 777? If their idea was to crash it, kamikaze style, there would be debris found. The whole idea of a terrorist attack is to leave the carnage for all to see, not to hide it.

If the plane was having some kind of mechanical trouble and went down, we would still find debris. If it went into the ocean, we would find jet fuel and oil.

If someone hijacked the plane to divert it to a different location, that would fit the evidence better. Hence the changing course and the transponder being turned off. Also would explain why the plane flew 5 more hours, and why the passenger’s cell phones could receive calls for two days – about the time it takes for a cell phone to run out it’s battery. Maybe the passengers are being held against their will somewhere and the next thing we will hear is a ransom demand.

flo's avatar

But what are they waiting for to make a ransom demand or whatever?

rojo's avatar

@Skaggfacemutt Hide it in North Korea?

BUT if you look at a map and draw a line from where the last transmission was through the point where the Malaysian military said it got a reading in the Straight of Malacca and continue on you end up at:

Diego Garcia!

Coincidence? I think not.

Brian1946's avatar

I just heard an ex-CIA(?) agent in an interview speculate that the aircraft may have been stolen, landed at a makeshift landing strip, and concealed from satellite view, with the intention of using it as a weapon later.

Eggie's avatar

We cannot trust modern technology as much in this situation. I think that they have been highjacked by someone—or something—and is hidden somewhere.

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

So the general consensus here is that the plane was hijacked and being hidden somewhere. It will be interesting to see if we are right.

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

@rojo So what are you saying? Diego Garcia is ours. That is, we have a military base there, just like in Kwajelein. What would terrorists be going there for, unless they wanted to crash the plane into the base. Or are you saying that we hijacked it?

rojo's avatar

Well, there is an Navy Base there that has a runway big enough to handle an aircraft of that size. And, it is extremely isolated. And I would not put it past any government, including my own, not to disappear an(other) airplane and all the “collateral damage” on board to get what, or who, they wanted.

Who was on that plane that the US wanted?

Other than that, what the hell we would want it for is beyond me but there it is.

Just throwing it out there.

Cruiser's avatar

Now they are saying that the plane was still flying 7 hours after it dropped off radar!!

“Although U.S. officials previously said they believed the plane could have remained in the air for several extra hours, Najib said Saturday that the flight was still communicating with satellites until 8:11 a.m. — seven and a half hours after takeoff, and more than 90 minutes after it was due in Beijing.”

ragingloli's avatar

Looking more and more like a CIA false flag operation.

plethora's avatar

My guess is that it is in Pakistan.

rojo's avatar

Rumor has it that it was hijacked by Iran, they are going to paint it up to look like an El Al airplane and nuke Israel so no one could pin it on them.

Not sure where this rumor came from, am certain it does not make much sense but just thought I would pass it on.

Hey! @plethora Iran is right across the border from Pakistan! Coincidence? I think not.

flo's avatar

They are getting closer to whatever is beeping, but they don’t find anything that would end up floating from the plane?

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

As time keeps marching on, I am beginning to think that the plane has been stolen for some devious reason. It just doesn’t make sense that there hasn’t been one scrap of debris, not a suitcase, a seat, nothing. When planes hit water, they break into a million pieces. The idea that the plane is at the bottom of the ocean, all in one piece, is just not believable. If it did break up, there would be “stuff” all over. Things would be washing up on some distant shore by now.

rojo's avatar

@Skaggfacemutt while I agree with you, I discount the lack of physical evidence because of the amount of crap they are finding out there that they never new existed (or floated by as the case may be).
