AENA no tiene constancia de que haya amerizado ningún avión de pasajeros en Gran Canaria
AENA says that no passenger a/c has crashed into the sea.......

Idiot reporters, rushing to be the first to break the news, without checking any facts
Not really, they seem to have picked-up on a report from the Canary Emergency Services.
What do they need to do? Charter a flight out there for a visual inspection before passing on? Some are criticizing withheld information, others saying info should be held until 100% confirmed.
On that basis, MH370 is nothing more than just "Missing"

There is a twitter pic that made people speculate:

In times like these it would be wise to confirm any news of this type before posting them to the forum as many non-professionals come to this site for information and updates.

Excuse me, but I don't know if anybody have asked this before: What was in the cargo hold of this aircraft that did not crash?

Probably a sea crane

Also on Twitter: Pic of the thing that probably got confused with an airplane.

Did the plane emit any "pings" before it did not crash?

There is a boat out where it did not crash, so the pilots probably did not land on the sea and steal the two tons of gold that was not on board.

No its 37 years to the day today since the crash involving the KLM and Pan Am 747s at Los Rodeos (Tenerife North) Airport in Tenerife.
