This is Richard Quest "aviation expert: from CNN with the co jo from MH370. No idea if it's real or fake, looks real though.

Probably authentic, as this event was referenced in another thread (with twelve and a half million hits) on this website.

Aviation expert - yeeeees :rolleyes:
He's about as bloody expert as Geoffrey Thomas.
Lazy media organisations who can't even be bothered to find someone who's actually done the job to comment...

Richard Quest? An expert on travel? I guess he's stayed in lots of hotels.

That is the standard web picture of the First Officer.
It's usually cropped to make Mr Quest disappear.

Is he signaling something with his tie?

He's about as bloody expert as Geoffrey Thomas.:D:D:D:D Way sick of the experts. Got a new word for it: [email protected] People who swank around in the media claiming to be technical experts because they're journalists who write about aviation.:bored:
Personally, I prefer the adjective :}; the noun got whored out long ago.
expert: definition of expert in Oxford dictionary (British & World English) (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/expert)

Hey Worrals? Ever think about the sound of the word? Expert. E-X-P-E-R-T.
Sounds very similar Ex-spurt. Spurt: to gush forth suddenly. Or, in these cases, to bloviate incessantly ad naseum. :ok:

Knowing Geoffrey, I doubt you'd hear him call himself that, more like lazy news producers that want to add weight to his comments.

Don't know about Quest, but Geoffrey's been in the industry in some capacity and, given the paucity of Journo's these days, at least he knows which way to turn when he steps on at 1L!!!

Another snippet for the CT crowd.

Why is there an identically liveried (ex-Malaysian Airlines) B777-2H6(ER) in storage in Tel Aviv?

I was banned from the MH370 thread, one question I asked "How easy would it be to clone a T7"......it was an off the cuff tongue in cheek remark:eek:

I'll keep a listen out for the black helos inbound......

Over in the colonies we have, in addition to nitwit Quest spouting away as if he knows anything worth listening to.

Scary Mary Schiavo former Inspector General of the Transportation Dept. A total no nothing political hack and lawyer

Then former NTSB managing director Goelz (another political hack) and lawyer

I was quite impressed with Greg Feith ex NTSB and who has a substantial aviation background and has actually investigated aviation accidents. He speaks facts that are not in the mediasphere!

What makes me laugh is the "Oxygen bottle / Fire extinguisher" that was found on the beach.

On the following two pages theories appeared about plane crashing, bottle being ripped from wherever it is installed while everything else on the aircraft is pulverised, numerous other weird and wonderful ideas that could fill a book.

Which I think will be written by someone after all this is over.

LOL Dak Man My dad would love that. His theory is that the Malaysians missed a payment and the aircraft has been repossessed...:}
