What happened to the Malaysian Airlines flight 370?
Meteors, Planes and Flying Objects
It looks like this was some kind
of hijacking, but I'll keep this blog piece up because I think that the
points made are worth a thought or two on a more general level (15/2/14):
A plane that disappears in this day
and age of constant global communication presents a great mystery. Given the
lack of a 'May Day' communication from the plane (and today they're saying
the plane confirmed everything was all right just minutes before it
disappeared), it would appear that there are two possibilities. Firstly,
that the plane was instantaneously destroyed - to such an extent that the
wreckage is too small and dispersed to have been recoverable. Secondly,
that control of the aircraft was taken over, preventing all communications
(e.g. a very well planned and executed hijacking).
Since no groups have claimed responsibility for a
terrorist act - or some kind of hijacking which subsequently led to
disaster once the plane had been substantially diverted from its
scheduled path - then the instant destruction possibility needs to come
from either a natural catastrophic event, or something 'out of left
A natural event would be a statistically almost
impossibly unlikely collision with a meteor. There are hints from the
scant evidence emerging that an unidentified object was picked up on military radar
to the west of Malaysia,
and that a fiery object was seen in the sky by an observer. But an impactor from space must be a very remote possibility.
The 'out of left field' zone might include an
accidentally launched missile from a warship undergoing manoeuvres
(which no country or military in their right mind would admit to).
Controversially, question marks still remain as to whether the TWA 800
flight was brought down by a ground-to-air missile.
Or could there have been a
collision with something else in the sky that simply shouldn't be there?
Like that unidentified object to the west? One of the things that many Ufologists have pointed out down the
years is how many times unidentified physical objects have had dangerous near-misses with
airliners which, at the time, scare the hell out of the pilots, but are
then covered up with the usual harrumphing and ridicule. Perhaps the
Malaysian airliner was not fortunate enough to get to that stage in the
UFO-encounter process, ending in a collision with foreign technology
that was truly catastrophic.
Just my speculative thoughts, with the greatest of
respect to the relatives of those lost who are desperately seeking the
truth. With a rapidly changing story such as this, we might all
know the truth soon enough. But, as things stand, the Malaysian
authorities seem absolutely clueless.
