    (If I heard correctly), this so-called "expert" said something to the effect that -- because the Gulf of Thailand is relatively shallow, even though the plane is under water on the bottom of the sea, the passengers' cell phones will still be contactable. [at that time it was assumed the plane crashed into the Gulf of Thailand]


    Wow. In a plane crash into the sea, the mobile phones may be smashed on impact.
    Can cell phones still can function when they are immersed in sea water 45 metres under the sea and short circuited?

    Maybe I misinterpreted the news broadcast. If I did not misinterpret or heard wrongly, then one wonders about the quality of the so-called "expert" interviewed by news networks.
    I specialised in microwave engineering. water is a very lossy media for electromagnetic waves especially in higher frequency like GHz and above... you can try submerging a ballast loaded, waterproof, Tupperware container with mobile phone inside, it won't ring if water deep plus far away from terrestrial base stations

    MAS fails to report the duck hit... their staff are just slack... and doesn't help their reputation right now..

    KATHMANDU: A Malaysia Airlines aircraft on a scheduled flight (MH114) from Kuala Lumpur with 180 passengers and crewmembers on board escaped disaster while landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) here on Friday night.
    A flock of ducks struck the aircraft's windshield as it touched down on the runway at 10.45pm on Saturday, leaving the southern tip of runway 02 strewn with broken glass, airport authorities said. There were no reports of injuries.
    The airline's cockpit crew, however, did not immediately inform the Air Traffic Controller (ATC) about the incident.
    The flight captain later confirmed the "suspected bird-hit", but only after a Jet Airways crew reported it to the airport authority.
    "The incident came to light after a pilot of Jet Airways, which landed minutes after Malaysia Airlines, informed us of sighting pieces of glass on the runway," said an ATC on condition of anonymity.
    Upon inspection, airport officials found at least 10 dead ducks and pieces of glass on the runway. The debris was cleared and airport resumed normal operations after half an hour.
    The officials found two more dead ducks during a routine inspection early on Saturday morning.
    "It's the first time that we have seen so many ducks in the airport area," said an official.
    Some officials said that they could be migrating ducks from Taudaha.
    The airline cancelled a return flight to Kuala Lumpur that was scheduled at 11.00pm Friday. All passengers who were booked on the flight were subsequently transferred to Soaltee, Annapurna and Hyatt Regency hotels. The plane took off for the Malaysian capital at 3.30pm Saturday after necessary repairs.
    Meanwhile, the ATC official said that they have notified the TIA general manager about the incident, recommending action against the Malaysia Airlines pilots for failing to report the incident in time.
    "The pilots should have informed the airport authority immediately to prevent any untoward incident," the official said.
    More than 75 bird strike incidents have occurred during take-off or landing at the TIA since 1990, with three resulting in major damage to aircraft. A Thai Airways Airbus A300 in 1996 and a Bangladesh Biman DC-10 in 2010 escaped without majot incident, but 19 people were killed when Sita Air Dornier crashed in September 2012.

    it takes them 5hr to report missing plane. Broken glass? Maybe 5 days.

    What is the fuss over search in south of Indian Ocean?

    Can they just think of the human aspect of whether it makes sense for the plane to fly south towards Indian Ocean.

    If the pilots wanted to ditch the plane and kill all on board including themselves, then no need to go so far. Can do it in South China Sea.
    If the plane was hijacked, the hijacker must have a purpose. If the hijackers' purpose was to send a message about some cause (whatever) then they or their accomplices on the ground would have broadcast that message. Hijackers do not take over a plane just to fly into the ocean.

    If fire on board plane and pilots overcome by smoke, plane drifted until fuel runs out.... plane would not have changed course from west to north west and then south? and climbed to 45,000 feet then dive to 23,000 feet. Anyway plane on fire cannot fly on for another 7 hours.

    Wonder why the emphasis on south Indian Ocean. Is it an intentional distraction from the north? Have they found it already somewhere in one of the TAN countries (Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, etc...) and mounting "seal team 6" rescue?

    The Indian Ocean is very deep, hence if there is really some conspiracy, it's a very good place to hide any evidence, and it is not likely that they will recover much of the wreckage / plane..
    You could almost make the entire plane disappear, and leave behind a few parts and the searchers will attribute this to the deep ocean and the bad weather..

    So you could take a few people / parts of the cargo away and they won't suspect it's a a deliberate removal..

    One theory is that plane was remotely controlled. Climbing to 45,000 ft is to knock out the crew and passengers in case they find a way to disable the "drone" operation. The only reason to go south of the Indian Ocean is to ditch the plane in the most remote area to make recovery very difficult. The plane could have landed at Diego Garcia to unload the cargo before being flown into the sea to dispose the evidence. Very cruel but very methodical and systematic.

    MLY asked each country to check its citizens on the passenger list and to return the results of the check.
    Surely they do no expect any country to say, yes one or some of my citizens are potential terrorists.
    Of course all of the affected countries will say no - until proved otherwise.

    Does this mean that none of the passengers could be a hijacker?

    It is not confirmed - because the "check" was stupidly carried out.
