Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) [a] (also marketed as China Southern Airlines Flight 748 (CZ748) through a codeshare) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on 8 March 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, last made contact with air traffic control less than an hour after takeoff. Operated by Malaysia Airlines (MAS), the aircraft carried 12 crew members and 227 passengers from 15 nations and regions, the majority of passengers being Chinese citizens.
At 18:40 Malaysian Airlines MH370 disappears of radar. There was no distress call. It vanished during the few minutes that it would have to change from control of ATC (Air Traffic Control) Malaysia to ATC Vietnam.
It is reported from ATC Malaysia, that the Captain of the flight made his last contact with ATC Malaysia saying “all right, good night”. At this point it was expected he would contact ATC Vietnam as he would now be entering their “Airspace” and therefore under their responsibility. No contact was made to ATC Vietnam..
Shortly after another flight 30 minutes ahead of MH370 was asked to contact MH370 on an “Emergency” frequency and check whether the Pilot had checked in with ATC Vietnam. The pilot of that Aircraft reported that he tried to contact MH370 but that there was a lot of static and he only heard some mumbling from what he believed was the pilot of MH370. He said he heard nothing more and that it was not unusual. He also said that if MH370 was in trouble then he would have got a distress call but none was received.
ATC Vietnam tried to contact MH370 but without success.
MH370 is now listed as missing and a search is initiated.

This data shows some strange things in the last few minutes prior to the plane vanishing. One noticeable thing is a plane that seems to shoot off at high speed.
The focus of the search is now being extended to include the west coast of Malaysia in the Malacca Strait. This is several hundred miles to the west and the opposite direction of the planes original flight path.
There are reports that radar signals may show the flight turning back.

Officials later deny that report that the plane kept flying for hours.

Lost Jet’s Path Seen as Altered via Computer
WASHINGTON — The first turn to the west that diverted the missing Malaysia Airlines plane from its planned flight path from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing was carried out through a computer system that was most likely programmed by someone in the plane’s cockpit who was knowledgeable about airplane systems, according to senior American officials.
Instead of manually operating the plane’s controls, whoever altered Flight 370’s path typed seven or eight keystrokes into a computer on a knee-high pedestal between the captain and the first officer, according to officials. The Flight Management System, as the computer is known, directs the plane from point to point specified in the flight plan submitted before a flight. It is not clear whether the plane’s path was reprogrammed before or after it took off.
Reconstructing the Plane’s Path
The main communications systems of the Malaysia Airlines plane were turned off about 40 minutes into the flight, forcing investigators to try to piece together the plane’s location from other systems.
Secondary Radar and Text Updates
Air traffic controllers typically know a plane’s location based on what is called secondary radar, which requests information from the plane’s transponder. A plane also uses radio or satellite signals to send regular updates through Acars, the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System. Both of those systems were turned off
Two Malaysian military radar stations tracked a plane using primary radar, which sends out radio signals and listens for echoes that bounce off objects in the sky. Primary radar does not require a plane to have a working transponder.
If Acars updates are turned off, the plane still sends a “keep-alive” signal, that can be received by satellites. The signal does not indicate location, but it can help to narrow down the plane’s position. A satellite picked up four or five signals from the airliner, about one per hour, after it left the range of military radar.

The search for flight MH370 Shifts to the North East.
The search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has moved to a new part of the Indian Ocean due to a "credible lead", Australia says.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (Amsa) said the search would now focus on an area 1,100km north-east of the previous zone.
The move was based on more analysis of radar data that showed the plane was going faster, thus using more fuel.
Today another piece of debris is presented, this time seen and photographed from a search plane.
Chinese and Australian ships draw blank.
A Chinese and an Australian ship have failed to identify remains from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight after their first day in a new search area.
The two ships retrieved objects from the Indian Ocean but none was confirmed to be from missing flight MH370, Australia's maritime authority said.
Chinese aircraft also flew over the area, north-east of the previous zone, and have spotted more objects.
Chinese patrol ship Haixun 01 and Australia's HMAS Success "reported they have retrieved a number of objects from the ocean but so far no objects confirmed to be related to MH370 have been recovered", the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (Amsa) said late on Saturday.
This is probably the most extraordinary event in Aviation history and will no doubt go down in History as such.
From the very beginning there was claim and counter claim put forward all the while causing anxiety amongst the family and friend of the missing passengers.
The first thing to note in this relates to the radar tracking. Remember the plane literally just vanished from radar. The time of vanishing is also important as it was at the exact time that it would have left Malaysian ATC control and entered Vietnamese Air Space.
Judging by the claims and counter claims one can deduce that this was not planned methodically. Therefore it would seem that there was no time to plan and execute the plan in a totally convincing fashion.
So it would then seem that this was being played out in a haphazard way. TPTB were caught with their pants down on this one. They spun numerous lies from the start. Even trying to play the terrorist card as shown by the quick notification of 2 suspect Iranians using fake passports. One can only wonder what caused them to release those childishly Photoshopped images.
The claims of spotted Oil slicks the day after were a desperate attempt to buy some time.
Let's take the claim by The Malaysian Military that they tracked the plane on a westerly heading across the Mallaca Strait. My thinking is that this was probably true. Later they retracted that statement. A strange thing to do to say the least. But not so strange if they were under pressure by the U.S!
So let's take a moment to look at the claim “on a westerly heading across the Malacca Strait. Where could an airplane go and land safely in that direction? Well there is a U.S Air Force base in that direction. Diego Garcia. Interestingly this happens to be one of only 5 Air Bases that control the Aviation Radars. It houses some of the most sophisticated technologies on earth! Diago Garcia is also just south of The Maldives, remember those reported sightings of a passenger plane flying low over them?
Diago Garcia also fits in perfectly with the timing of the reported sightings from The Maldives and also with the amount of fuel on board.
Let's jump forward a bit now to the sightings of debris in the Southern Indian Ocean. It took over 2 weeks to spot this debris. Take a look at google maps for Diago garcia. Pan out a bit and look due south east and you will see th area of the supposed debris. Notice that there is nothing in between in the way of land. So if there was debris planted in the area then it could be done in total secrecy. Remember they have had over 2 weeks to set the stage here while the world was concentrating in other areas.
The B/S given that they have no idea what happened to the flight is just that B/S. There is technology that can track trucks in real time including info of when they are stopped and for how long. There is technology that is even capable of tracking whales as they cross the seas, but they want us to believe they could not track a Passenger jet?
On investigating the Flight Simulator found at the home of the Flight captain they found, amongst others, practice landings for Diago Garcia.
Now let's add another piece of information in here.
Ukraine's Gold reserves were secretly flown out the day before MH370 vanished.
Now I want to add this in here, thanks to Ocker for this post.
