  • Missing Plane May Have Flown 2,000 Miles After Dropping Off Civilian Radar. Where Is It Now?
    Missing Malaysia Jet Said to Have Flown West With Beacon Off (3)
    March 13, 2014
    ‘A missing Malaysian airliner kept flying after it dropped off controllers’ radar screens, raising new questions about whether foul play was involved, according to people familiar with data gathered in the inquiry.

    ‘Radar signals sent from the ground continued to reflect back from the plane after its transponder went dead as the aircraft headed north from Malaysia toward Vietnam, said the people, who weren’t permitted to speak publicly about the probe. After the transponder shut off, making it harder to follow on radar, the plane turned left toward the west instead of continuing on its path.

    ‘An automatic system that sends data about the health of the plane’s engines may also have continued to function, indicating the aircraft was being operated intentionally, the people said. That suggests the Boeing Co. (BA:US) 777-200 may have been flown off course with the intent to fly undetected, by the pilots or hijackers.

    ‘The 777 had enough fuel to fly the 2,700 miles (4,345 kilometers) to Beijing and reserves to fly to a diversion airport. That meant it was capable of flying at least 2,000 miles after it changed course.

    ‘The plane continued to fly west toward the Andaman Sea, only dropping off Malaysian radars as it reached the end of their range…’

    New information reveals that the missing plane vanished off of military radar only because it flew out of range, not because it went down.

    It had enough fuel on board to fly to Beijing, it could have flown 2,000 miles in any direction after the transponder was switched off.

    Engine status information continued to be transmitted after the transponder switched off, indicating that electrical systems were operating normally.

    It looks more and more like the plane was hijacked by asylum seekers who wanted to escape, and they didn’t want to advertise where they were going. The plane never arrived anywhere on land, so it may have gone down in the Indian Ocean, far out of range of any radar.

    Is there any way it could have landed at some remote location on land, possibly on an island, without it being found by now?
    Susan Joe, that is a cloud that forms around big planes due to the air pressure reduction from the plane’s lift.…1558.7798.0.8038.….0…1ac.1.37.img..18.13.1159.jzbeyV-dg3g

    It’s pretty startling when you first see it, but it’s actually pretty common.
    Ringing cell phones don’t mean anything unless someone answers.

    The cell phone company sends a ringing tone to the caller, even while the company is searching for the other phone and hasn’t found it yet.

    You can take out the battery from a cell phone and call it from another cell phone, and it will ring at the caller’s phone even though there’s no way the call is ringing at the other end.
    Cabin decompression is made unlikely by the close timing between the transponder switching off and the plane making a sharp left turn and then flying under control for an hour until it flies out of range of military radar, while the engine status signals continue to be transmitted normally.

    There is no doubt that the plane was being flown intentionally and purposefully during that time.

    The question is, by whom? And where did it go? Where is it now?

      The Andaman Islands are a group of archipelagic islands in the Bay of Bengal, and are part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory of India. Port Blair is the chief community on the islands, and the administrative centre of the Union Territory. The population of the Andamans was 314,084 in 2001, a small minority of about 1,000 are indigenous Adivasis of the Andamans. The rest are mainly divided between Hindi, Bengali, Tamil and Punjabi speaking people from the mainland.
