Missing planes

thought I'd start a topic on this becomes more and more bizarre by the day

The talk now is that the plane may have been in the air for 4 hours after the last contact

I fthe latest theory is true  , it appears they said "Goodbye " to Malaysian ATC but never got in contact with Vietnam turned off the transponder then did a turn and headed North West ...where it was being flown between navigational waypoints (suggesting a trained pilot was in control )

I initially wondered if the plane had suffered a similar fate to Payne Steawarts Learjet resulting in Hypoxia but it doesn't explain the transponder being turned off and the apparently controlled route being flown  , it doens't really suggest mechanical failure nor a pilot suicide unless he took 4 hours to write his suicide note !!

Interestingly the new route would be on a path to Iran ( only interesting because of the 2 Iranians on stolen passports ) they could just as easily been heading somewhere else .

Surprising that a plane can go missing in the sky and nobody appears to have been looking for it , scrambled jets etc 

Really is a strange one this

I was under the impression planes only carry enough fuel for the journey that is planned and a bit extra in case they have to divert at the last minute. Iran is a good 1000 miles further from KL than Beijing, plus the plane was already headed north towards the general direction of China... so I think there is no way it could have made it to the middle east.

Not necessarily. It depends upon accessibility and price of fuel.

If fuel is cheaper at the starting point, it is not uncommon for an aircraft to cover a round trip on one tank, so to speak.

Of course it has to be cheaper taking into account the burn for the extra weight.

It reeks of a cover up imo

 

I heard one theory that hardly gets any air time but sounds incredibly pausable

 

The plane could have been shot down by mistake

 

I did mention it in general chat or wherever it was being discussed ... however it would contradict the "pings" they have received from the craft (if these accounts are  true)  , the U-turn ( on a known flight path ,again if true  )  and of course the missing plane ... had it been shot down on it's flight path the wreckage would be where they first looked

 

but then everything about this seems bizarre  so at present I'm not ruling out Godzilla leaping out the sea and eating the plane   ...

A really good Godzilla?

 

Or one where they can't decide from scene to scene from shot to shot what actual size and scale it should be?

 

are we ruling out a Godzilla /Godzuki tag team taking it down ?

If all I take from this is that really cool piece of trivia then I'm happy.

it was one of the factors that brought the Air France Concorde down wasn't it ... didn't they have something like 1.2 tonnes of extra fuel , which meant they were heavier , which meant they took off further down the runway , which meant  they hit the debris they would otherwise have cleared

 

small margins and all that
