    Uncle Ricohflex, MAS commercial airliners does have ACARS / CPDLC (HF & VHF), ACARS / CPDLC (SATCOM), ADS-B / Mode S / TCAS XPDR, GPS equipped as was stated previously. Those systems are pretty much standard nowadays.

    It was the SITA OnAir In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) suite providing telecommunication services (cellular / mobile (date and voice), wi-fi network etc. etc.) for passengers on-board with bandwidth supplied by Inmarsat SwiftBroadband and data link routed through the Inmarsat 3 (I-3) and Inmarsat 4 (I-4) constellation series of geostationary communications satellites that wasn't installed.

    We should not gloat at MLY. It is tough on the MLY officials and MAS staff. I think MLY managed it quite well, given the complexity and mystery of the case.
    First few days confusion because agencies + military want to protect their vested interests. e.g. how air force explain an unidentified jet with no radio contact flying across MLY and no one scrambled a fighter to check it out.

    Not sure if LHL, Lui Tuck Yew and SIA CEO could have done better if it had happened to a SIA plane. Given the Mas Selamat and Woodlands barrier crash cases, it looks like we may be just as clueless.

    The worst thing is if it crashed in the Andaman Sea. If it is a simple case of terrorist hijacking plane for hostages, then passengers are still alive.
    MLY or PRC can send commandos to rescue. Or since got 1 American, then US can send Seal Team 6.

    Did Malaysia just waste 11-12 other countries' money and time by not releasing data on a timely basis? LOL. I mean what on earth are they thinking of?!

    Yeap, and the coconut bomohs will really lose their nuts since (if I didn't remember wrongly) they concluded that the plane was either in the air or at sea right?

    I really pity the NOKs, this is such an emotional roller-coaster and the end is still nowhere in sight. They need more comic reliefs from the bomohs.

    i still don't buy this hijack hypothesis.
    the hijacker(s) have:
    1. accurately determine the exact moment to strike when the plane entered the malaysia-vietnam atc border
    2. pilot a jumbo jet with incredible skill, evading both civvie and military radar
    3. took a route that would certainly have raised alarm bells, but (luckily?) never got caught
    4. managed to misdirect entire govts
    5. subdue entire plane of 200+ ppl

    you really can't make this stuff up.

    It's possible. They might have weapons smuggled.

    We don't know how many hijackers.

    The thing about MY customs is that they are v lax. Those who travel to MY will know what I mean

    Your wallet is bigger than the rest of us so it definitely look suspicious

    You can hide a weapon/bomb in there

    If the hijacker theory is true, the most suspicious person is the pilot, who have many years of flying experiences.

    The 9-11 hijackers use flight simulator to familiar themselves with NY city before they proceed with their plan. I suspect the pilot use the flight simulator at his own home to familiar himself with the route that would evade the radar.

    If the pilot lock himself in the cockpit, the passengers cannot do anything about it.
    When the plane reach the destination, armed accomplices would board the plane to subdue the passengers.

    Another suspicious thing is that the transponder is turn off by someone in cockpit.

    The only problem with the hijacking theory is that there is no ransom or demand. There is no group that claim responsibility.

    Latest news - seem like the pilot is Anwar supporter

    This one by SG photographers but they forgot magic carpet.

    Without the magic carpet, it will find rain cloud instead of missing plane

    So is this the reason why it rain in SG yesterday ???

    And it is raining cats and dogs today

    So what if he is a supporter of Anwar?

    They are using the MH370 incident to discredit Anwar.

    It is like saying this so and so XXX name armed robber likes to eat McDonald's burgers. Does that mean McDonald's burgers got anything to do with the armed robbery?

    Yes, if you look hard enough. Should be easy thing for you as conspiracy pro
    McDonald is not really known for producing healthy food. Malnutrition has driven many people into violent activities. There you go..
