Twilight Zone Like UPDATE On Malaysia Flight 370 – Officials Change Search Proximity After Revealing Plane Took Left Turn and Turned Off Transponders…

WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE ?   Events have taken a rather incredible turn in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

Officials now have changed the entire search area after they reveal the Boeing 777 took an intentional 90° left turn, turned off both tracking transponders, and flew for at least 40 minutes in a totally divergent direction toward Indonesia.

In addition the cell phones of the passengers aboard the flight are still reported to be in working and/or operable condition.

[...]   Adding to the mystery, other relatives in the room said that when they dialed some passengers’ numbers, they seemed to get ringing tones on the other side even though the calls were not picked up.

The phantom calls triggered a new level of desperation and anger for some. They tried repeatedly Sunday and Monday to ask airline and police officials about the ringing calls and QQ accounts. However unlikely it was, many thought the phones might still be on, and that if authorities just tracked them down, their relatives might be found. But they were largely ignored.

According to Singapore’s Strait Times, a Malaysia Airlines official, Hugh Dunleavy, told families that the company had tried calling mobile phones of crew members as well and that they had also rang. The company turned over those phone numbers to Chinese authorities.  (link)

(Reuters) – Malaysia’s military believes a jetliner missing for almost four days turned and flew hundreds of kilometers to the west after it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country’s east coast, a senior officer told Reuters on Tuesday.

In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew.

Malaysian authorities have previously said flight MH370 disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese capital Beijing.

“It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait,” the senior military officer, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.

That would appear to rule out sudden catastrophic mechanical failure, as it would mean the plane flew around 500 km (350 miles) at least after its last contact with air traffic control, although its transponder and other tracking systems were off.

A non-military source familiar with the investigations said the report was one of several theories and was being checked.

LOST CONTACT  -   At the time it lost contact with civilian air traffic control, the plane was roughly midway between Malaysia’s east coast town of Kota Bharu and the southern tip of Vietnam, flying at 35,000 ft.

malacca strait
The Strait of Malacca, one of the world’s busiest shipping channels, runs along Malaysia’s west coast.

Malaysia’s Berita Harian newspaper quoted air force chief Rodzali Daud as saying the plane was last detected at 2.40 a.m. by military radar near the island of Pulau Perak at the northern end of the Strait of Malacca. It was flying about 1,000 meters lower than its previous altitude, he was quoted as saying.

There was no word on what happened to the plane thereafter.

The effect of turning off the transponder is to make the aircraft inert to secondary radar, so civil controllers cannot identify it. Secondary radar interrogates the transponder and gets information about the plane’s identity, speed and height.

It would however still be visible to primary radar, which is used by militaries.

Police had earlier said they were investigating whether any passengers or crew on the plane had personal or psychological problems that might explain its disappearance, along with the possibility of a hijack, sabotage or mechanical failure.

There was no distress signal or radio contact indicating a problem and, in the absence of any wreckage or flight data, police have been left trawling through passenger and crew lists for potential leads.

“Maybe somebody on the flight has bought a huge sum of insurance, who wants family to gain from it or somebody who has owed somebody so much money, you know, we are looking at all possibilities,” Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar told a news conference.

“We are looking very closely at the video footage taken at the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport), we are studying the behavioral pattern of all the passengers.”

The airline said it was taking seriously a report by a South African woman who said the co-pilot of the missing plane had invited her and a female travelling companion to sit in the cockpit during a flight two years ago, in an apparent breach of security.  (read more)

    I wouldn’t read much into the cell phones; it’s more likely they’re falling into an unusual condition where the phone system is trying to figure out where the phone is, and failing.

    • nyetneetot says:

      As I recall, Indonesia was one of the countries over there that their cellular network providers implemented triangulation location prior to 2003. They may not be able to pinpoint the exact location any of the phones but they can tell you if any of them are connecting to a particular tower since most send out a “here I am” about every 11 seconds.

  2. sundance says:

    Malaysia’s military says it is investigating reports that a missing Boeing 777 jetliner headed to Beijing changed course and made it to the Malacca Strait, hundreds of miles away from the last location reported by civilian authorities.

    Malaysia Airlines said Tuesday that the western coast of the country, near the Malacca Strait, is “now the focus” of search efforts. That is on the other side of peninsular Malaysia from where Flight 370 was reported missing by civilian authorities, meaning if the plane went down there it would have had to fly over the country, presumably undetected. No debris from the plane has been found.

    • ctdar says:

      One thing I don’t get with this theory, if the plane made such a drastic turn off its flight path, wouldn’t passengers notice it, figure out what is happening and call for help exactly like all the other poor souls of September 11 did? In this day and age i would think someone would have made a distress call.

    • doodahdazee says:

      Mulaccan Pirates or a UFO.

  3. dodo says:

    It sure sounds like some kind of crew involvement

  4. Rachelle says:

    But officials seem to prefer the idea that it accidentally flew into a black hole rather than admit that terrorism may be involved.

  5. Uncle Larry says:

    Someone pulled off the greatest gold heist in history. China ships tons of gold on civilian aircraft.

    • canadacan says:

      That I find very interesting-the gold theory.

      • nyetneetot says:

        Wasn’t there a James Bond film were submarines or planes kept disappearing? Perhaps we should be looking for an artificial island cruising around the South Pacific. Didn’t Google just build something?

        • F.D.R. in Hell says:

          GOOGLE issued a statement, to the effect, “Don’t use Google Earth to locate the missing plane.”
          Note: There have been no large groups crossing the River Styx lately. However, there was a group from a cruise ship recently that all felt so sick they wished they were dead. :evil:

          • nyetneetot says:

            I was thinking more inline with the Google mystery barges. But my joke seems to have been a dud. That doesn’t surprise me that people might try to use Google Earth believing it’s some sort of webcam.

        • JAS says:

          Funny, There is an island on the NW coast of Thailand referred to as James Bond Island Only a couple of hundred miles away from the incident. It was used in one of the Bond movies.

  6. Sam says:

    Seems like it would be difficult for a plane as large as a 777 to fly over a country undetected. Military (primary) radar would show something, even if the transponder was turned off. In the US, the location would be triangulated and fighters scrambled to investigate if the airline pilot did not respond. Obviously, it’s not the same in Malaysia. We are not getting the full story here. A hijacking as part of a gold heist? A hijacking and defections? A crash? I at least need more info.

    • Stormy says:

      Malaysia is a Muslim country, with 65% Muslim adherents. It was the middle of the night.

      Whatever they “saw” , they didn’t bother to tell anyone until 4 days later… even though they had millions of dollars worth of ships and crews searching in the wrong place, and they knew it.

      Please excuse me for having a deja vu moment thinking that Beelzebub will now have a hostage crisis just like Carter’s Iranian hostage crisis.

      God be with them if they are still alive.

      • CurlyDave says:

        “Please excuse me for having a deja vu moment thinking that Beelzebub will now have a hostage crisis just like Carter’s Iranian hostage crisis.”

        Not at all similar, Carter had several dozen American embassy people held in a hostile foreign country, Obozo might have only a few American tourists held by moslem extremists. Not nearly as big an issue with most Americans.

  7. crossthread42 says:

    Excuse Me please,,, ALL I can think of is ALL those episode’s of LOST… (praying for the passengers)… Though, intriguing detective/forensic Mystery, ATM..

    • LetJusticePrevail" says:

      That’s funny! Within minutes of hearing about a 777 that had mysteriously gone missing, “Lost” came to my mind, as well!

      Dharma Initiative, anyone?

  8. auscitizenmom says:

    I can’t believe it took all this time to tell the searchers that the plane was in a totally different area.

  9. Steve K says:

    So, um, here’s a question for Mr. Obvious, why do ATC transponders on civilian aircraft have an off switch?

  10. jordan2222 says:

    So everyone has been on a wild goose chase until now? Unbelievable.

    When I first heard the report, I remember that turning around or a u turn was mentioned so what happened with that report?

  11. John Denney says:

    I think it’s a hijack.
    The plane was fueled for a flight to Beijing, so it’s got that much range, plus probably 10% more as a safety buffer.
    So, draw a circle on a globe, with the center at Kuala Lumpur and the radius set at Beijing. A turn to the west? Pakistan would be in range. So would the Maldives. No cell towers out there in the Indian Ocean.

    • ctdar says:

      I mentioned above, how could the passengers not notice the change in the flight path and make distress calls to their loved ones? That part does not fit, especially after September 11.

      • Stormy says:

        It was the middle of the night… most people try to sleep during those flights.

        Bad guys could have rounded up all the passengers’ cell phones, and turned off the Airfone telephones.

      • Stormy says:

        On ALL of the September 11 hijacked flights, the terrorists brutally murdered several people on each flight in front of the passengers to “discourage” the rest of the passengers from resisting.
        Throat + Box Cutters = A great deal of blood and fear

        • ctdar says:

          Yes, who can forget that? My point was that some poor souls during that nightmare morning went & placed calls anyway. The Malaysian plane was in its initial phase of the trip so I’m sure not everyone had already fallen asleep.

  12. ctdar says:

    Er, is this article saying the plane’s computer system could be over-ridden by outside force…like say a car’s computer? And what US company had like 20 employees on that plane? The one that worked with electronic & chip technology. :shock:–300-and–300er-series-airplanes-aircraft-electronic-system

    • nyetneetot says:

      There is an US cyber security firm that 2-3 years ago proved it was possible achieve limited… access to an aircrafts systems. The process is so convoluted that it is considered highly improbable. That process bypassed involvement of any employees.

      • nyetneetot says:

        I should also note that there are safety protocols in the autopilot that return control to the pilots making it impossible to force a crash.

  13. radish says:

    Is it my imagination or does one of the Iranian stowaways (29 year old seen in video) not look facially similar to the Italian man whose passport was stolen? This means an Iranian was sought who resembled him, to participate in this refugee hoax. The 19 year old was probably promised refugee status if he assisted, with his mother waiting at Frankfurt. I’m nowhere close to an expert on avionics, but doesn’t dropping your flight height with transponders turned off reduce your radar visibility while flying? Geography is not my forte, but which countries are located in the direction the plane turned? All cell phones must have been collected at point while in flight off airplane mode, knowing in advance hostages would attempt to communicate with loved ones once the destination was reached. There is no telling to which renegade country this plane could have hijacked. My first instinct is Iran. Unless it is not in the correct direction. Is a big plane of that size helpful in any way for a terrorist plan later on, melding into airlflight traffic? Is there some diabolical insane attempt by ultimate terrorists to mastermind a 777 passenger plane into stealth carry of nuclear arsenal or bombs? And if the Malaysia Airline passengers have been offloaded, then there is a chance some have survived, because there is no way they would survive 4 days without food and water supplies enclosed in a hijacked plane. I’m not buying the UFO angle. There is a good explanation. Remember we are living in dangerous times where Ukraine is being invaded by Russians, Iran is being financed indirectly by Obama to move full speed ahead on nuclear development, the USA military has been incapacitated and become a terrorist target by its own president, only a tip of the iceberg.

    • Stormy says:

      I agree with your Iran instinct.

    • justfactsplz says:

      Well, I have some of the same thoughts, especially about Iran. I wonder why they waited so long before telling that the plane had changed directions. Something is up with this plane that is for sure.

  14. nobaddog says:

    If the cell phones are really ringing they will be able to trace the tower that connected the phones or they can simply leave a message and they will call when they get a chance. Im sure its very hectic on that plane right now!

  15. unitron says:

    “Adding to the mystery, other relatives in the room said that when they dialed some passengers’ numbers, they seemed to get ringing tones on the other side even though the calls were not picked up.”

    Adding to sloppy reporting maybe.

    When you call someone and you hear their phone ringing, you aren’t hearing their phone ringing, you’re hearing something generated at the central office (or the cell phone equivalent).

  16. doodahdazee says:

    The plane came down in the Malacca Straight. A body and raft have been found.

  17. JAS says:

    Speculation is running way out on control in aviation forums. The truth of the matter is that the only thing known about this incident is the last position and altitude of the aircraft before it disappeared. That’s it.

    Based on those coordinates, the realistic assumption that the plane went down near that area, and the number of days elapsed, I believe they are looking for debris in the wrong place. Looking at prevailing easterly winds and north westerly currents at the last know position, the debris field, would now be hundreds of miles to the NW, near the Eastern to Northeastern coast of Thailand Nobody is looking there.

    I would not be surprised if this thing gets resolved when people start finding debris on the beaches and coastlines along eastern Thailand. If they did an air search in that area they could rule out that the aircraft went down near its last reported position.

    • doodahdazee says:

      Something went wrong mechanical or criminal or both and they turned back by dead reckoning I think. Headed South to the South Coast and then went West to try and find the Airport. Did not make it that far and ditched it in the straight or crashed there..hard to ditch at night with no landing lights . This is just a guess.

      • JAS says:

        Your guess is not a bad one and it echoes what even experts and governments are saying. However, it is till speculative because we just do not know what happened. Yes, there might be indications on primary military radar that the plane made a turn. Primary radar is passive, it does not interrogate the airplane’s transponder, so they just see a blip with no aircraft ID going back, which could just be any number of things.

        I find this a lot more credible and would mean that the aircraft did go down around it’s last position:

  18. JAS says:

    BREAKING! Fox news is reporting at 5:45PM EST that the Chinese have apparently found the plane using their satellites. Fox showed Chinese satellite pictures showing large pieces of what appears to be wreckage, one of them about 80 ft long, all very close to where the contact was lost. a little SE of the last known position.

  19. Mike says:

    This is the same case as flight 412 in 1974, OGA took control of the air craft and devertid it to a old world war II base the pilot and copilot and crew were debreafed. Bowing and Rolsrice now ware the engine’s are, Those people will be found but not alive. OGA will see to that, also in the same area back in 2007 there was a passenger plane that went down. ADOM airlines 120 dead. but what the deal was there was an anomlie in the water also coused a bout with over a 100 people to cap size but there were 12 survivers. ,, look up the military flight 412
