Has Australia suddenly woken up from some sort of slumber or perhaps, a purposeful skirting of what they already knew but were reluctant to let out to the public over missing Malaysian Flight MH370?
Australian officials, overseeing the search for the missing plane have now come out and said that they have some evidence that the plane’s communications systems were deliberately shut off in the cockpit as perhaps, an attempt to avoid radar detection. They’ve “discovered possible evidence of tampering” which they called “a mysterious power outage”. Well, that took them long enough when most of the rest of the world, including laymen, have all figured this out long ago.
During a scouring of a 55 page report set out by the ATSB ( Australian Transport Safety Bureau ), they discovered that no one in the cockpit set way points to send the plane into the Southern Indian Ocean path “to crash”. Leaving the question of whether or not it was set on auto-pilot.
However, what is clear is that Malaysia made only 2 attempts to contact the missing plane over a nearly 7 hour period. One attempt was made, 1 hour and 17 minutes after the final sign-off from Kuala Lumpur’s control and then, Malaysian airlines waited another 5 hours before they tried again. That leaves nearly 7 hours worth of non-communications and only 2 attempts with a missing plane. Experts say that the 5 hours in-between was way too long and question why this was the case.
“I’m absolutely surprised there’s only two attempts to call on the satellite phone,” Qantas pilot Richard Woodward said. “If you’d lost contact with an airliner you’d be calling them on every frequency. You’d definitely be trying to call them on the satellite phone (as well as VHF and HF and by data link, similar to SMS).”
Keep in mind that these latest revelations have come on the heels of Australians having said about a week ago, that they believed all of the passengers and crew had lost consciousness, suffocated and drifted aimlessly until running out of fuel and crashing into the Southern Indian Ocean. This was a statement filled with more questions than answers.
How is it that a plane makes a conscious 170 degree turn, cross the Malaysian peninsula again, un-detected then, heads around the Indonesian northern point along the Straits of Malacca, and heads off into the Southern Indian Ocean and why? What is down there? What would be the reasoning for such a move? How would all of that be done while unconscious? Even the auto pilot story didn’t hold water or answer those questions with that theory.
“Given these observations, the final stages of the unresponsive crew/hypoxia event type appeared to best fit the available evidence for the final period of MH370’s flight when it was heading in a generally southerly direction,” were official’s only answer.
So, it was the only thing that “best fit” their hypothesis?
David Gleave, a specialist with Loughborough University has said in an article in Express U.K. was less than impressed with the idea of a mechanical failure hypothesis.
“There are credible mechanical failures that could cause it. But you would not then fly along for hundreds of miles and disappear in the Indian Ocean,” he said, making it what most people already believed.
In a statement published by The National Post, Gleave went further.
“The interruption to the power supply appeared to be the result of someone in the cockpit attempting to minimize the use of the aircraft’s systems. The action, he said, was consistent with an attempt to turn the plane’s communications and other systems off in an effort to avoid radar detection. A person could be messing around in the cockpit which would lead to a power interruption. It could be a deliberate act to switch off both engines for some time.”
Inmarsat, the British Satellite Communications company by whose data the search is and has been based upon, agreed with Gleave’s thinking but, stated that they didn’t know what would cause such a power outage.
In yet another twist of lack of truth, comes the realization from the pilot’s wife that it was her husband who signed off from 370 to Kuala Lumpur’s control, meaning that her husband was in control of the plane at the time of sign-off.
Faisa Shah, MH370 pilot’s wife, confirmed to reporters for the first time that it was her husband, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, who spoke the final words, “”good night Malaysian 370.” It was not, as previously announced by Malaysia, co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid. However, Malaysian Airlines had announced that it was Hamid who had said those words, knowing that Mrs. Shah and her eldest son had confidently identified the voice as that of Mr. Shah on March 8, 2014 in the final vocal communications from the plane.
Malaysian police have also now released that Shah had made no future plans for flights or his personal life as the rest of the crew had done. They also let out the fact that Mr. Shah’s home made flight simulator had programmed into it a path into the Southern Indian Ocean with the idea of landing on a short runway, something a Boeing 777 couldn’t easily do.
Hugh Dunleavy, commercial director of Malaysia Airlines said that he believes that something sinister likely happened to the plane.
“I believe it is somewhere in the south Indian Ocean. But when [a plane] hits the ocean it’s like hitting concrete,” he stated. The wreckage could be spread over a big area.”
To date, it’s worth taking note that not a single scrap of wreckage has been found from MH370 in spite of over 4 million square miles of ocean having been covered on the surface and nothing having washed up on beaches some nearly 4 months later.
One other theory posed here, involves the idea of the search area, west of Australia. Australia has a broad radar system that sweeps out into the area that is believed (according to Inmarsat data) to be the resting place of MH370. Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN), would have or should have, picked up the plane had it gone the route that Inmarsat and searchers have designated as its final resting place.
Now, look at the area that has been covered and is being looked at further by searchers, led by the Australians.
Yet, there has been no admittance that there was any radar sighting of MH370 by Australia. Why not?
This entire mystery, wreaks of dirty fingernails. Something is still terribly amiss with this entire scenario. While tid-bits are coming out slowly, there’s a lot that is being withheld but, known by others. The public isn’t being made aware of it yet. The operative word is “yet”. There is something sinister, lurking somewhere, somehow by some. This was no accident. This was not a mechanical failure. This was a deliberate act as I’ve been saying all along. I do not believe that this plane had anything wrong with it and I still am far from convinced that the plane rests on the bottom of the ocean where they are searching. As a matter of fact, I’m not at all convinced it’s even in that area. I doubt Inmarsat’s data being the answer to the southerly route and frankly, I still hold out hope that the passengers and crew are alive somewhere on land. Am I nuts? Maybe but, I have yet to be convinced that we are being told the truth about any of this entire mystery but, remain convinced that eventually, the reality of it will come out. Or, will it? Will it be held back forever and by whom or what government?
Something is rotten in that area of the world. At least, that’s how I see it from my little corner of life.
