MH 370 do you know what happened?

We all know there is more to this story. It seems a lot of people want to put her disappearance in a box and lock it in a cupboard, including some posters here it has to be said.

There is a high probability that someone here knows somthing...

What do you think happened really?

Cue the patronising reply’s in 3 2 1

Was that patronising enough for you?

What we know in no specific order....

1: MH370 took off
2: Radar coverage in the area was far less effective than everybody thought it was.
3: MH370 disappeared off radar well before it would have run out of fuel
4: MH370 transponders were ineffective - we do not know if they were disabled or became defective
5: MH370 did not arrive at its planned destination and has not been acknowledged at any other airport
6: Wreckage which appears to have come from the specific airframe used for the flight was washed up at a few spots on the western edge of the Indian ocean.
7: The airframe, as built, was not capable of inflight refueling or of holding enough fuel to be still flying.
8: The Southern Ocean is very, very wide, between Australia and Africa, North of the Equator to the Antartic., somewhat over 27 million square miles in area
9: The southern Ocean is on average 2 1/2 miles deep and 4 1/2 miles at its deepest
10: A Boeing 777 does not float indefinitely.
11: In plan a Boeing 777-200ER has a span of around 61m and a length of around 64m, a "box" of approximately 3600 sqm or, of a size that would fit into the Indian / Southern Ocean over 19.5 billion times
12: Radar contact was lost over the South China Sea
13: tracking by satellite messaging location, ACARS, etc. place final contact point over the Indian Ocean some time after radar contact was lost.
14: The overwhelming majority of the Southern Ocean is not mapped & what has been mapped is significantly geologically distorted
15: it took the best part of 3 years to find the wreckage of AF442 when the route, tracking and point of impact were well known in reasonably deep water and on a fairly flat seabed
16: If the black box pingers worked, their range is too short to be heard reliably from the surface.
17: If the black box pingers worked, their batteries will be exhausted long ago.
18: No passengers have turned up
19: No bodies have been washed up anywhere & no survivors have appeared either
20: it took a fluke of a note the position of leaking fuel oil welling up twenty years earlier to locate the wreck of the "Derbyshire" when she sank in 2 1/2" miles of water. It is unlikely that even a full load of aviation fuel would remain together to reach the surface let alone be noticeable in similar circumstances.
21: It is also unlikely that the airframe could leave this planet under its own power.

There's a huge amount that we still don't know, and are unlikely to ever know, unless by some fluke the airframe or its remains are found & analysed and the black boxes are recovered and can shed some light on events in the air.

Everything else remains speculation

Durn right about that. If you spend some time researching some of the posts you will find that several are spot on, but designed to go over the heads of casual readers and thus get lost in the chaf.

I suggest you go back and read the many threads on this and look for these repetitive hints based on real facts

All right, you've flushed me out. But I'm still not telling!

Search for "Miss Scarlett" and "Library". The rest I'll leave to you.

Unfortunately, none of us can agree on which ones they are.

Are you talking about the aircraft? Or the thread that's already running on this subject?

After all the time and efforts put into the investigation to now and with very little show for it - it will take a leap in detection technology or a happy accident to proceed further.

Here's a better version:



N.B. Before anyone gets too excited, that's Gilligan's Island, not Diego Garcia.

It's like the proverbial monkeys and a keyboard, who manage to write the Gettysburg Address.

Some so called facts are only postulations or "what ifs" while others are known facts by the poster from inside knowledge or expertise in a field. Most readers tend to believe only what they want to believe so they mix everything up with their own postulations.

in this case, nobody has all the answers at this time, so these threads encourage free range on speculations

It is at least the current second place World Hide and Seek Championship record holder, behind bigfoot.

A little birdie told me the MH370 pilot was inspired by the TV series 'Lost', but I do not wish to be quoted.
