Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 Mystery Solved!

MalaysiaFlight 370

Breaking news from the Associated Press claims that Malaysian officials involved in the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 have confirmed that the jumbo 777 airliner that went missing nearly a week ago was hijacked!

From the AP by way of Yahoo News:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Investigators have concluded that one or more people with significant flying experience hijacked the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, switched off communication devices and steered it off-course, a Malaysian government official involved in the investigation said Saturday.

No motive has been established and no demands have been made known, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory.

“It is conclusive,” he said.

He said evidence that led to the conclusion were signs that the plane’s communications were switched off deliberately, data about the flight path and indications the plane was steered in a way to avoid detection by radar.

The Boeing 777′s communication with the ground was severed just under one hour into a flight March 8 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Malaysian officials previously have said radar data suggest it may have turned back toward and crossed over the Malaysian peninsula after setting out on a northeastern path toward the Chinese capital.

Earlier, an American official told The Associated Press that investigators are examining the possibility of “human intervention” in the plane’s disappearance, adding it may have been “an act of piracy.”

While other theories are still being examined, the U.S. official said key evidence suggesting human intervention is that contact with the Boeing 777′s transponder stopped about a dozen minutes before a messaging system on the jet quit. Such a gap would be unlikely in the case of an in-flight catastrophe.

The Malaysian official said only a skilled aviator could navigate the plane the way it was flown after its last confirmed location over the South China Sea. The official said it had been established with a “more than 50 percent” degree of certainty that military radar had picked up the missing plane after it dropped off civilian radar.

Why anyone would want to do this is unclear. Malaysian authorities and others will be urgently investigating the backgrounds of the two pilots and 10 crew members, as well the 227 passengers on board.

Some experts have said that pilot suicide may be the most likely explanation for the disappearance, as was suspected in a SilkAir crash during a flight from Singapore to Jakarta in 1997 and an EgyptAir flight in 1999.

A massive international search effort began initially in the South China Sea where the plane’s transponders stopped transmitting. It has since been expanded onto the other side of the Malay peninsula up into the Andaman Sea and into the Indian Ocean.

The plane had enough fuel to fly for at least five hours after its last know location, meaning a vast swath of South and Southeast Asia would be within its reach. Investigators are analyzing radar and satellite data from around the region to try and pinpoint its final location, something that will be vital to hopes of finding the plane, and answering the mystery of what happened to it.

    and the #1 rated news outlet of cable. Maybe because they don’t suckle on the teet of our government.

    The only sheeple are the ones following the current socialists over the cliff.

    What a totally uniformed statement, made by an obvious MSPMS viewer – where the don’t report the news – they make it up from Media Matters. IF and when Fox ever resorts to making up the news, I’ll stop watching it. Til then it is the ONLY honest news service in America, your ignorance notwithstanding.

  • Ollie

    mystery is not solved? Just info that the plane was hijacked! Where to Iran? Pakistan?

  • daveachicagoareajamerican

    And then when they find the debris of the plane, the Malaysians will change the story again and say it was a bomb. And when investigators discover the black box indicated the windshield cracked and the sudden decompression caused the plane to crash, the Malaysians will say it was a maintenance issue. And when they find out the transponder wasn’t turned off, it was the antiquated, third world air traffic control system in Malaysia, the Malaysians will blame the poor economy on not being able to maintain their equipment properly.

    I’m waiting for the Malaysians to come up with 50 more excuses and 15 more theories before I still won’t believe a word they say.

    And they still can’t find the Airliner, but can spy on people. Plane is a bigger target to see than people.

  • Brian Diffenderfer

    “they” know exactly where this plane is, and “they” have plans for its use.
