      • Hi -- I am new to this forum. I just received a link to this Aviation Herald article from a friend. Any comments about the section quoted below? There is a photo of an alleged debris field that goes along with it.

        Crash: Malaysia B772 over Gulf of Thailand on Mar 8th 2014, aircraft missing

        Hong Kong's Air Traffic Control Center reported on Mar 10th 2014 around 17:30L (09:30Z) that an airliner enroute on airway L642 reported via HF radio that they saw a large field of debris at position N9.72 E107.42 about 80nm southeast of Ho Chi Minh City, about 50nm off the south-eastern coast of Vietnam in the South China Sea and about 281nm northeast of the last known radar position. Ships have been dispatched to the reported debris field.

        • If this report is correct then it really must have glided as its way off the last known position, isn't it?

          • New search area's added, the one's to the West of Malaysia seem odd, but you never know it could turn up anywhere.

            I found this quote on the New York Times.
            Malaysian authorities and an independent flight-tracking organization offer roughly the same coordinates of the aircraft’s last known location, less than halfway between the Malaysian coast and the southernmost tip of Vietnam. The Malaysian calculation is based on military and civilian radar; Flightradar24, a Stockholm-based aircraft tracking service, uses a separate network of radio receivers.

            Mikael Robertsson, co-founder of Flightradar24, said that the company’s computers had not recorded any altitude data for the last two reported positions of the aircraft, which were received about 30 seconds apart. He said there were two possible explanations. One was radio interference from a transmission by another aircraft using the same frequency, which he said was a relatively common occurrence. The other was that the aircraft’s transponder stopped receiving altitude data because of some unknown event on the aircraft a minute before it vanished.

              • Sorry to say, but IMHO the guy is an idiot.
                He's claming that suddenly the flight path was altered by someone (Flightradar24?) but if you look closely at the left colomn with the flight data then he's showing aircraft registerd M9-MRQ and NOT 9M-MRO
                Cheers

                  M9-MRQ flew the the following day the 8th, the incident was on the 7th.

                  And he is correct - M9-MRQ signal did stop south of Hainan ... but was picked up again once once past Hainan.

                  Selective reporting.

                  • And now it's also time for the usual, quick dietrology...

                    "Iranian bought tickets for Malaysia Air passengers with stolen passports
                    Both tickets booked in Pattaya, Thailand by an Iranian man known only as Mr. Ali."


                    Although "Benjaporn Krutnait, owner of the Grand Horizon Travel agency (Thai travel agent in Pattaya, Thailand, who booked the tickets for the men) ... said she did not believe Ali (an Iranian, a long-term business contact) "was linked to terrorism, particularly as he had not specified booking the Kuala Lumpur-Beijing flight but had instead asked for the cheapest route to Europe. She said she was speaking about the case because she was concerned over the speculation about a terrorist attack and wanted the facts to be known."

                    • @Peterhr: yes that's true, but in the youtube video he's claiming that it's the same flight and same airplane! This is NOT true.
                      He was trying to prove that someone altered the data in Flightradar24 concerning the ill fated flight (watch the video)
                      And that's just not true.
                      Cheers

                        I think CNN withdrew the video ... but someone had already 'captured it' and posted a link to the 'captured' version above.

                        • Hello, new here, Saw your thread last night decided to join. - i don't know much about planes (though i just got back from china and flew on the exactly same plane but different airline) but have a few theories of my own , Could someone have brought a radar jammer onboard as it looks more like that everyday i see it on the news, Also i heard reports that family members are able to call their family on board but no one picks up - so if they're not in the sea where could they be?

                          Link to video for this is

                          Not sure what to make of this.

                            • Anyone else noticed that the plane was on a little used route and went missing in an area on that route with very minimal communication coverage. I have seen ADS-B drop off from other flights in that area of the oChina Sea.

                              • Recent update from Gwyn Topham, theguardian.com's transport correspondent, sheds much light I think on issues now being debated or questioned here. e.g., rationales for extending search zones beyond that indicated by the last coordinates given off by MH370's transponder less than half way to Cape Cà Mau, VN over the Gulf of Thailand. Owing to flightradar24, we believe that final transponder plotting was: 6.27365, 103.270. Reasons why a definitve search zone cannot necessarily be drawn from that are given: http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...pear-off-radar
