Can we not make "funny" comments about this? It's not exactly appropriate.

OMFG the penny has just dropped. It's not India or Iran its only actually god dam N.A.R.N.I.A.Quick someone alert the authorities.

I'm very surprised you have missed the obvious flaw in your 'hypothesis'....the airliner depicted in the 'jungle image' is not a Boeing-777!......A 777 has two wing mounted engines, whereas the aircra

Very strange indeed. If the plane disintegrated in mid air their would be debris all over the ocean.

Did it perhaps make land and crash in an unpopulated area?

I cannot believe that is has been hijacked and flown to an airfield without anyone knowing.

The incident happened at night and weather was good apparently but no other airline pilots, ships/boats in the area if they were any have reported seeing anything out of the ordinary such as a flash or what looked like a meteor.

If the plane was hijacked and the transponder switched off, it would still be picked up radar wouldn't it?

 

And surely the amount of technology in space would be able to pick up all air traffic movement?, particularly post 9-11.

 

Is it still possible to steal a plane?, and where would it be landed?, can an airport be hijacked?

Seen this, but it's unconfirmed and they don't believe it is anymore.

 

It's also worth noting, it was a Boeing 777 - same plane as in LOST.....

 

On a serious note, it's very strange how in todays age a plane can just vanish like that. Also, the two guys with fake passports, this happens a lot over there on shortish flights to get to different countries, so maybe unrelated.

 

What's also strange is the 5 people who checked in, then decided not to get on the flight.... Final destination anyone ?

 

 

The United States extensively reviewed imagery taken by American spy satellites for evidence of a mid-air explosion, but saw none, a U.S. government source said. The source described U.S. satellite coverage of the region as thorough.

When there is simply no immediate answer, of course there will be theories, conspiracy and other. Remember it took two years to find the majority of the debris and the data recorders from AF447 which also seemingly vanished over the Atlantic. The uncertainty is always grim when these thankfully very rare events occur, but it must be harrowing for relatives and friends.

 

Passengers checking in and then not boarding is nothing unusual, the baggage just gets removed. Likewise, false passports are not uncommon in many countries and are often just connected to illegal immigration rather than terrorism.

 

It's wait and see...

The more time that passes without wreckage suggests a very small debris field which would not be consistant with a 35,000 ft break up?

Which then begs the question that if the plane was intact at impact, why was there no distress call or indeed mobile phone calls from the passengers?

 

The search for the French flight which crashed in mid-Atlantic found wreckage immediately, but of course no distress call was sent either, as the Pilots, right until the last seconds, thought they had a recoverable position.

One things for sure, they are all sadly dead (excluding terrorists somehow took the plane and landed somewhere else under radar, if that's even possible!)

 

As someone would have probably made contact by now... Barring a miracle.

 

We await the outcome, but a tragic time none the less.

There are similarities with the Air France crash a few years ago - over the ocean, late at night, vanished with no distress calls etc. Perhaps the pilots were too busy dealing with sudden serious problem (such as losing flight controls due to hydraulic failure, a fire, explosive decompression) to make a distress call or like the Air France pilots they didn't realise there was a serious situation until it was too late.

 

I don't think its terrorism, why would they blow up a plane of mainly Chinese over the middle of ocean without informing anyone or anyone claiming responsibility. Doesn't make sense.

 

Seems the plane might have tried to turn around so they may be looking in the wrong place for debris. Or perhaps the plane just nosedived into the ocean and sunk to the bottom without a trace, then there might be much debris.

 

Who knows, sure is a mystery.

Terrbile tragedy though as all on board are likely dead, RIP.

That's true Bobby... Only difference with this one is the French wreckage was found right away.

 

If the Plane was turning around and that is confirmed, then maybe they knew they had a problem or something along those lines.

 

If the plane nose-dived from 35,000 feet it would hit the ocean like hitting a brick wall, debris would scatter everywhere.. It's strange, but I am sure we will know more in the coming weeks.

 

RIP to all :-(

My theory is volcanic ash may have clogged the engines and it dropped into the ocean.

Non starterThat would have been an obvious candidate from the start because it would have been known if volcanic activity in the area had occurred. Edited by Weather-history

With the Air France flight, was there any distress signal from the crew before it went down?

 

Edit: Just seen a post above saying no. But this really is bizarre.

been following this, tragic it seems, not heard this, but is it not possible pilot fell ill, heart attack, unconscious etc, maybe why no call

 

But that's why they have at least one co-pilot.

It's bloody odd.

They found the wreckage of the Air France, a day after it disappeared and this was the Atlantic and its deep waters. My understanding is that the waters in this region is not as deep.

Anyone remember the film Airport 1977? That was a plane that managed to land on the surface of the water but it sank. Could that have happened? If it did, where was the distress signal?

Could it have been hijacked and landed undetected somewhere? But how do you land a large plane undetected in this day and age? Why is there no ransom?

What's the longest period of time that a large plane has remained missing in the last 10 years?

Landing a plane on water is incredibly difficult, the landing on the River Hudson was a remarkable bit of flying from a very experienced pilot. At sea would be even more difficult with the waves.

A thing I find odd is that mobile phones from people on board are ringing but not answering, surely if the plane crashed at sea all the phones would be water damaged and effectively "off"?

Plus Engine data is bounced back to the engineers who made the Engine in real time, so if anything happens to the engines, they probably know as soon as the cabin crew.

This story is getting stranger by the hour? If the plane broke up at high altitude there would be a massive debris field and the odds are reasonable that someone would have seen something. The lack of a mayday call suggests the pilots were unable or caught unawares. The lack of any debris as time goes on has to suggest the very real possibility that the plane didn't actually crash into the sea?
