Have you heard the news what are you thoughts guys, what do you think has happened?
Came across an interesting youtube video but could be just a conspiracy nut.
Very interesting Rob I heard yesterday on the radio that they are not telling the full story
Ignore this video, the guy is an idiot. The start of the video shows aircraft 9M-MRO, but later it shows 9M-MRQ. They're both 777s!
FlightRadar24 is an excellent site, they wouldn't stoop to fielding incorrect shit as this guys suggests!
There are so many things that could have happened, that until they start coming up with some wreckage, no one will really know.
They are searching in a massive area, its like trying to find a Mini car in England, without any help as to where it may be.
1. In air break up, in area not yet explored. Expect wreckage to start appear on beaches etc after 5 to 7 days +.
2. Hijack and landed somewhere. Possible, in that the transponder can be turned off, and radar in that area isn't as sensitive as land / populated areas.
3. Water landing, complete, like what happened on the Hudson River a few years ago. The plane would sink, in tact. There would be little or no debris, and if passengers did escape, they would be tiny specs, and would need a rescue craft to fly virtually directly overhead to be seen.
4. A TV company is starting a new show 'Lost: With real people' on some pacific island.
I'm sure in a week or two, we'll start to know a bit more.
Would a water landing be likely to have killed everyone on board instantly? If not, would one of them not have been able to get a phone signal, or would the plane not have been able to broadcast a request for help / its location?
The plane being hijacked and landed somewhere seems like a nutty conspiracy story. If that was the case someone would have claimed the credit anyway, though I doubt it was ever realistic from a practical point of view.
I think I'm going with technical failure, crash, & we just haven't found the wreckage so far. I think the fake passport travellers will end up being a false lead and all will turn out to be economic asylum seekers rather than terrorists.
Latest News!! they are saying the plane changed course.. that would rule out engine and plane problems,...
Unless it changed course to try to land somewhere else because of engine or plane problems?
I don't think it really rules anything out... as a terrorist could have forced them to change course too.
You can help try to locate it HERE Good luck trying to get it to load though
You can only search so many squares too before it says
And blocks you
