Dudes and dudettes, I’m quite sure everyone here has heard the news about the missing Malaysian airplane that went ‘poof and bye-bye‘ right out of the sky by now. If not, check out the links that will be provided. – At any rate, what’s the first thing that pops into your head about the mysterious disappearance of flight 370? Mechanical error…pilot error, or terrorism? Keep in mind that two of the passports turned out to have been stolen, they were used by two passengers aboard this plane as well.
Here’s a quick synopsis via this link:
A Boeing 777 pilot flying 30 minutes from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane told the New Straits Times in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia that he made contact with MH370 minutes after Vietnamese air traffic control asked him to message the plane.
The captain, who declined to give his name, said his Narita, Japan-bound plane was well into into Vietnamese airspace when controllers — who could make contact — requested that he relay with his plane’s emergency frequency a message to MH370 so that it would establish its position.
“We managed to establish contact with MH370 just after 1:30 a.m. and asked them if they have transferred into Vietnamese airspace,” the pilot reportedly told New Straits Times. “The voice on the other side could have been either Captain Zaharie (Ahmad Shah, 53,) or Fariq (Abdul Hamid, 27), but I was sure it was the co-pilot.
“There were a lot of interference… static… but I heard mumbling from the other end.
“That was the last time we heard from them, as we lost the connection,” the pilot said, adding that he thought nothing of the lost contact since it happens frequently — until he learned of MH370 never landing.
“If the plane was in trouble, we would have heard the pilot making the Mayday distress call,” the pilot said. “But I am sure that, like me, no one else up there heard it.
“Following the silence, a repeat request was made by the Vietnamese authorities to try establishing contact with them.”

Throw in your two-cents…whadda ya think happened? Will there be a cover-up after it’s found…and all the jazz goes with it? Many of us have long memories, we know what goes hand in glove from previous experiences like this within our own country from the past…don’t we?
While I’ve refrained from talking about this since it happened, it looks like it’s time we do now. Then again, by morning…we may know all the answers…or maybe not.
