Breaking News: A Boeing 777-200 is missing and has lost contact with Malaysia Airlines

A Boeing 777-200 aircraft carrying 239 people is missing.

The flight left Kuala Lampur, bound for Beijing, but lost contact with Malaysia Airlines.

The plane was one hour into its flight when communication ceased, and based on the amount of fuel the aircraft was carrying, Malaysia Airlines says that it's extremely unlikely the plane is still in the air.

    Has that particular 777 been flying through volcanic ash?

    Is it possible the plane could have been hijacked and flown below radar to another location?

    How about the idea that this plane was hijacked and taken somewhere to be used against us in the United States? Load it with our worst nightmare and deliver it to our airspace........

    Piers,

    There have been many comments and suggestions made and theories formulated about MH370. Facts are rapidly being deleted and more added. For some reason the transponders ceased to function. I have not yet heard a suggestion as to how 100 or more passenger cell phones were made inoperable . . . or were they?

    What I don't get is how can a pilot have the capacity of turning off a transponder without the plane sending a message to its own country military/ATC an alert that it was turned off

    Why is no one talking to the mechanics that know every system on this airline and service it daily. There are mechanics at every airline hub that are thoroughly trained on every system in this plane

    I really enjoyed the show tonight with all the experts on the missing flight, however, I have been a Pilot for a major US Airline for over 30 years, and I have many thousands of hours in big boeings. That pilot "expert" you had on the show tonight is wrong about the autopilot defaulting to heading select mode with the failure of the FMC. It goes into heading hold mode, and will maintain its last heading prior to the LNAV failure. You must select "heading select". So the turn had to almost be intentional after the transponder went off.

    Has anyone mentioned that the unplanned flight path after losing track could have been a major problem for other aircraft in that area. i.e. collision with another aircraft or taking out of an inhabited area. If your going to interview someone in this case maybe a test pilot having experience with 777 would be a good place to start.
    It should also be noted that if it did not turn at the said point it could be in the artic circle.

    People forget.. The only comment Captain Sully made to ATC was, "We'll be in the Hudson"... he was busy.

    Why not make some rectangles (to scale) and superimpose them over a graphic of a 777 and see if there is any way to get those pieces out of that airplane? It seems improbable.

    How irresponsible to torture the victims of this tragedy with "cell phone" questions when your own network answered the issue on air last evening. Shame on you!

    Has anyone checked the programs in the pilots personal " in house" simulator to see if one matches the incident.
    It seems to me to be any awful expense to have a toy that you have so many hours of flying.

    I would like to hear more about what is known of the pilot and crew. Were they overly tired, well trained, etc. What do we know about the crew.

    Is there any possibility that after atc recognized their U-turn, that they could have then descended and flown under radar detection, made a another U-turn and head North again? Maybe North Korea?

    I have yet to hear any broadcast mention the use of cell phones by passengers. Were any texts or calls sent and received around the time of the disappearance. We know these governments have the ability to check this out. Can you please explain why the media and all their experts refuse to address this topic. 239 passengers, certainly someone was making a call if something unusual was happening. I've been watching coverage of flight 370 for days on end and no mention of cell phones. WHY????

    Iranian operatives commandeered the plane to provide cover for their comrades who are gearing up to invade Ukraine - no better way to divert resources, satellite & news coverage and military assets - keep your eye on the ball.
