Missing Malaysian Flight 370MH: Could It Be On Land In the North Indian Ocean?

Could searchers for Missing Malaysia Flight 370MH be searching yet again in the wrong area for the missing plane?
Is it possible that the mysterious disappearance of the missing plane and it’s 239 passengers and crew, be somewhere else, possibly on land?

I’m not an expert in anything in this arena but, I have a mind and I have intuition and instinct.  Both of those are telling me that it’s quite possible that searchers should be looking on land in the northern areas of The Indian Ocean, rather than south, by Australia. 

Why am I saying this?  Maybe, I’m crazy.  Maybe, I’m just hopeful that the passengers are safe and sound somewhere or, at the least, many of them have survived and are alive and well?
Whatever the case may be, something is telling me instinctively that Malaysia Flight 370 is not in the southern Indian Ocean and there’s some dirt under fingernails somewhere. 

Besides my gut feelings, what logical reasons could I have for having this personal theory? 

Early in the missing plane’s disappearance, I wrote a brief entry where I described the sense that it may have been one or both of the pilots who were at the helm of the mystery.  Am I right?  Like everyone else right now, I don’t know for certain but, there’s a lot that points to the idea that it was perhaps, either or both pilot created and enacted. 

Firstly, the communication systems seem to have been deliberately turned off.  Both the transponder and the ACARS signalling systems had seemingly been turned off only 26 minutes after take-off.  There were no distress signals or maydays and no suggestion of any sort of mechanical failure at that point. Besides the pilot or co-pilot, not many regular folk would have knowledge of those systems and what needed to be turned off or, even how to turn them off.  Had this been a mechanical malfunction of the plane, simplistically, these systems would not have turned themselves off.  The transponder and the ACARS systems can both be disabled in the cockpit, even though the ACARS is situated further back, in the under-belly of the plane.  The transponder can be disengaged by the flip of a button and the ACARS can be at least partially rendered useless by the pull of a breaker switch in the cock-pit thus, the perpetrator hadn’t need of leaving the front cabin.

This is where a lot of questions come into play that don’t make sense to the current theory that the lost plane and its passengers are somewhere, laying in watery graves in the southern Indian Ocean, offshore from Perth, Australia. 

Perhaps, the most poignant question would have to be, why there? 

If one were to look at the idea that either of the pilots were to have been suicidal, then the question of why there, would have to come to mind.  Why fly a couple of hundred people several  hours to crash the plane into sea water when they were already over water at the time?  Why turn the plane around, travel west and south by several hours to plunge it into the ocean next to Australia?  Wasn’t there several thousands of miles of ocean before that point?

Next comes the idea that had a hijacker or even either of the pilots wanted to take this plane somewhere else, where the heck were they going in the southern Indian Ocean where there was nowhere to land and nowhere to go?  It doesn’t make sense in either of the above scenarios. 

One of the last radar sightings located the plane northwest of Penang.  The map below shows the areas of critical information.  The circles represent the take-off area and the expected destination.  The squares represent the radar sightings.  Look at where that plane was.  Does it make sense that it suddenly started to head west and then, south?

Possible flight path areas originally posed…Why are they not looking to the north, on land?

So, what is wrong with this picture? 

Even are we to assume that perhaps, there was mechanical failure, fire, smoke or any other sort of mechanical failure, it does not explain why the communications systems were turned off within less than a half hour of take-off, the plane turned around quickly and heading back west, towards Malaysia again, without communication of trouble.  Furthermore, in layman’s logic, the plane was not programmed to fly back to the west, indicating that pilot manipulations had to be made to do so.  To go further to say (as some have speculated) that the plane’s pilots, crew and passengers were rendered “unconscious”, how is it that the plane made manoeuvers on it’s own, flying for another 6 to 7 hours, west, then south-west, until it ran out of fuel and landed in the southern Indian Ocean, west of Pert, Australia where searchers have now re-directed their search efforts?  It’s not adding up, is it?

There are all kinds of theories as well, as to how the chief pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a staunch supporter of the Malaysian Opposition party and may have been making a political statement to the Malaysian Government after Opposition Leader, Anwar Ibrahim, was jailed for “sodomy” (homosexual activity which is illegal in Malaysia).  This might be a possibility. 

There has also been alleged news that Shah’s wife and three children had left their home the day before the plane went missing and that though they had been estranged for quite awhile, Shah was also seeing another woman whom he was allegedly having trouble with.  All of this has led to speculation that the chief pilot might have wanted to have ended his own life.  As talked about above, there are many reasons why “suicide” with 238 other people in his hands, likely wan’t the case. 

More plausible is that Shah or someone else on board that plane, had reason to want to hijack the plane.  Possibilities have been speculated that besides political reasons, it might be that Shah was dissatisfied with the Malaysian Airline and what is alleged to have been “corrupt operations”.  Could it be that Shah, with personal troubles and nothing to lose, had decided to hijack the plane elsewhere and allow the airline to take the flack or go bankrupt? 

What strikes as a possibility is that Malaysia Airlines and the Malaysian Government, were both quick to make a condemning statement to the families of the loved ones who were passengers on the missing flight that their loved ones were dead “with no survivors” via a text message.  Did they know what had happened…something, no one else knew?  Had they had communication from someone on that plane, having landed somewhere else, holding the passenger’s hostage to certain demands that are not being made public? 

There are so many questions that cannot be answered at this moment.  Everything is purely speculation and theories.  Nothing is known for certain.  Least of all, none of us have the right to blame either of the pilots for this mysterious loss of a plane and 237 other passengers without any proof.  It’s all purely hypothetical, based on questions that are being raised and nothing more.  No one should be condemned to such alleged sins without proof.  Both pilots may be heroes for all that anyone knows. 

Right now though, something is fishy.  Something stinks.  A lot of things don’t add up.  At least, not to the civilian mind or even the logical mind. 

Perhaps, it’s purely wishful thinking on my part?  Perhaps, I’m simply crazy?  Perhaps, I’m hanging onto hope that those missing passengers, the pilots and their families will be re-united?  Perhaps, my imagination has gone awry?  Or, maybe, I’m putting two and two together to come up with five because I’m not, by any means, knowledgeable in aeronautics and am ignorant to the realities of what the experts know?

Whatever has happened, I hope that I’m right and that Flight 370 is not under the depths of the Indian Ocean in a watery grave.  My hope is that these people will eventually be found alive and well and put back in the arms of their loved ones soon.  That’s my thoughts as they continue to claim to find more and more debris, found daily in the Southern Indian Ocean (a known “garbage dump” for ships) is proof of the missing flight then, proclaim it a mistake.  I’m sticking to my hope and intuition…..at least, for now or, until proven otherwise.    ,
