There has been a development in the story of the disappearance of Malaysia Air Flight 370, and this one is, at first glance, straightforward, but at second and third glances, maybe not so much. Most readers here are familiar with my high octane hypothesis that the airliner simply went "poof" and that nobody really knows what happened to it. I aired this view a week after the disappearence of the flight on the late George Ann Hugh's The Byte Showi, and outlined (as best as I could) my admittedly extremely speculative reasons for why I thought that. Those reasons basically boiled down to this: that in the highly charged geopolitical atmosphere, any covert action by any nation in hijacking the flight would have been exposed by other nations, yet, nothing was forthcoming at the time from any of the major suspects: Russia, China, the USA, Iran, Isreal. The covert operation theories came fast and furiously, yet each had problems.
Well, my "poof" theory may have just gone "poof", as there are now a bevy of articles coming out about the discovery of wreckage on an island in the Indian Ocean that may be from flight 370(and my thanks to the numerous people that send me versions of this story). Consider these various versions:
US Official Confirms Discovered Debris Matches MH370 Type of Jet
Officials are trying to connect the wreckage to Flight 370, but in the Sputnik version there's already a fly in the ointment:
Xavier Tytelman, an airplane security expert based in France, told Wired that after he analyzed the photos, he noticed a series of two letters and three numbers. Reading BB670, he thinks the series could be part of a serial number, but that number would not match that of MH370.
You'll note that the debris has been found in the western Indian ocean, far from the last officially favored crash zone in the eastern Indian ocean off the coast of Australia. As the article notes, currents could have carried the wreckage there.
You'll note that it is apparently US(and Australian) officials who are seemingly in a hurry to identify this wreckage with that of Flight 370. However, others are not in such a rush:
In addition to airplane parts, Business Insider is reporting that luggage has also washed up:
Now, I'm presently inclined to think my hypothesis that "it just went poof" has itself now gone "poof".
Or maybe not: note that in the photos of the wing debris, the wreckage is white, whereas MH 370's wing and flapperon was a light brown color:
If one scrolls down in this last article, one notes that the pictures show that the wreckage is white, while, as noted above, MH 370's colors on that part of the aircraft were a light mottled brown.
And as some of the people who sent me these various articles have observed, and as this last article itself observes, the wreckage appears to be far removed from a beach (where one would assume it would "wash up").
It's still too early to say, but I have to register my own suspicions here, and those point to "this is mighty convenient, and there are, here as elsewhere in the MH 370 saga, anomalies. Why are the pictures of the wreckage, for example, not showing a context of a coastal area but rather, a more inland one?" The story, in other words, appears to be already being "spun" in a certain cirection, at least by some in the USA. There are present in this story as it has thus far developed, the problems of the color and context of where the wreckage appears in the pictures.
I will forego my usual high octane speculation here, except to say that my suspicion meter is already in the red zone. My "poof" theory might or might not have have just gone "poof," but if it did go poof, now newer and more disturbing questions are raised: someone wants resolution to the MH 370 story, even if that resolution appears, on first glance, to be very sloppy. Time will tell. At this juncture, given what we've seen so far, the story already as problems.
See you on the flip side...
So this all said, I mean lets say for arguments sake, this piece of a 777 is not from MH 370, and I must say my own opinion is that it isnt. It still looks as though it has definitely come from a crashed air plane. If it was placed there for purposes of closing out the mystery, where did it come from? what other plane(s) had crashed in that area?
New-old flight technology, NY-London Airbus in 1 hour. So now, “ordinary” people will (perhaps) get to use this hydrogen-fuelled craft.
Rocket launched planes for general use by any part of the public are not going to happen.
It’s not a well kept secret that the US military already has an hypersonic jet spyplane.
Now equally curious, if not dubious, the island volcano Piton de la Fournaise roars to life (on queue?)

Field McConnell: “That Washed Up Part Isn’t from MH370. it Was Put There.”
What a coincidence…
A certain controversial site author – who merely mentioning his URL here got a Comment of mine ‘disappeared’ yesterday – has pointed out an interesting fact:
The purported MH370 flap segment has undamaged barnacles on all sides!
For such a heavy segment, the mere physics of slowly washing ashore via wave action on a sandy/rocky beach would grind/plane the barnacles on at least one side. Photos of all the different sides of the segment show intact barnacles. Hmmm…
A reader of the controversial site author just chimed in with another fact: He used to clean boat bottoms, for a living. He always saw a great deal of algae along with the barnacles. He wondered where the algae was, on the purported MH370 flap segment. Hmmm, again…
(He seemed ‘even’, since he even made the caveat that his experience was in the tropics, and he didn’t know if the ocean temperatures in the Reunion area would effect algae growth.)
Depends how long it took washing ashore. If the wing came to the beach with a very high tide, then it could easily be deposited without much wear.
Algae is more likely with things that spend time moored in warm polluted harbors than continuously moving out at sea.
Sorry, no. Assuming the same beach ‘roughness’ at high and low tide levels, anything would experience the same degree of scraping/planing when coming ashore at any tide.
Agreed on the algae point. But, this part may have been at sea for a year. Plenty of time for algae growth to have started in sheltered areas (even on the barnacled areas) and then spread…
I also had a thought about the purported MH370 flap segment, from my ‘practical aero’ side. When I was working with real aircraft, I noticed that mechanical engineers always made sure that there was a small ‘drainage’ hole in each part, usually at the lowest point, to protect the part from moisture buildup and resulting corrosion. (It also helped to ‘vent’ the part, so it did not suffer damage from quick ascents or descents.) If the flap segment had these holes, I would expect it to slowly ‘waterlog’ and no longer be buoyant…
Ok, lets say that the part of the wing found IS part from MH370, then you are left with a very LARGE question to how the plane went down in the ocean in the first place. Only finding the black boxes will tell the tale.
I think everybody has a belief that “something” is fishy about the missing plane. I still believe that they will never find the black boxes, why, for the simple reason that the Indian ocean is vast. Yes, I remember that the French found their missing plane a couple of years after it went down, but the area where it went down WAS known, this is not the case with MH370.
Trying to find that plane in the Indian ocean is the needle in the haystack, lets just see if they “CONTINUE” to hunt for it.
Well I never would even consider that one could “lose” an airliner in today’s age, what with satellite tracking by various nations, transponders that are NOT able to be turned off no matter what goes on in the cockpit, engine monitoring in real-time by Rolls Royce and Pratt & Whitney, 5-eyes “total awareness” integrated surveillance, and on and on it goes…
So no, airliners simply do not get lost and the *poof* hypothesis never carried any water for me, ever. Many governments know what happened to MH 370 and we peons are left sifting the tea leaves for scraps of truth while the sociopaths in control weave their false narratives of duplicity that we call the “news.”
My take on this is that the flight was diverted to Diego Garcia (you have very credible eyewitness testimony that a red-white-and-blue livried jumbo jet flew over the Maldive heading south (in the direction of Diego Garcia) early on the morning after the plane went missing. At Diego Garcia, the plane was emptied and whatever the 5-eyes partners wanted from it was taken. Then the plane was either hangered for a while or was eventually disposed of in the Indian Ocean.
If this debris IS indeed the B777 that was flight MH 370, then it was ditched after landing at Diego Garcia. Look at the ocean current charts for this region and you will see that currents run west southwest fom Diego Garcia toward the island of Reunion where this wreckage was found. If it is not that of 317, then it was salted so that people would think that it was, IMO. It is also telling that not a peep was heard from the USG while the search for 317 was on, but now that some dubious scraps wash up on a beach, all of a sudden various US agencies have an awful lot to say. Yeah, right.
Now, you also have MH 117, shot down over the Ukraine nearly a year later, also a B777 (quelle coincidence!). There is a YouTube video some 10 minutes long which I’ve watched in its gruesome entirety, which is a German-speaking first-responder who is narrating a slide show of her photos of that crash site on that day. The photos are appalling, but her commentary, backed up by her on-site photos, is absolutely incredible (but just what I suspected): she points out that most bodies smelled of putrefication, that many were Asian, that most were bloated and smelt of formaldehyde, and that many were nude or barely dressed, and that none had blood. This was confirmed by many photos showing clearish fluids but no bllod from the corpses, particularly one that landed on a paved road and was surrounded by a wet spray that had no blood at all. Finally, she reported that as sun set, the bodies took on a luminescent sheen — due to the formaldyhid of their embalming. This video is on YouTube and I encourage everyone who can stomach it to see for themselves what it shows.
The teams on-site checked the smartphones and no data or photos from 2015 were on them; everything was nearly a year old. In other words, most of the passengers were already dead, the same passengers from MH 370.
This is pure evil, yet again.
In 1967, Marshall McLuhan wrote The Medium Is The Massage: An Inventory of Effects, detailing how the media controls content and how content is received on the individual. But even that was massaged into the Medium is the Message; deliberately obfuscating the author’s intended word, “Massage”.
So here we are nearly 50 years later and the medium is a continual massage, after massage with the reader trying to find any semblance of what the truth may be.
I still think that your high octane speculation rings true, Dr. Farrell. As Don B. already said in the comments, these are the same kind of people that told us that one of the terrorists passports survived the crashing inferno of the 9/11 attacks.
Also, anyone remember this little gem?
If you believe any of these stories about Flight MH370. You will believe in the official stories of Dallas Nov.22.63, 9/11 and weather balloons in Roswell NM 1947. What are they really hiding and when if ever we the people will ever be told.
I agree Marcos. Its quite funny and almost as funny as that passport that was miraculously found at the World Trade Center. db
Ya know, something that goes poof doesn’t necessarily go poof in its entirety.
The whole airplane doesn’t have to have fallen through a door to another dimension.
A lot, but not all, of the World Trade Towers went poof.
So the body of the jet could have disruptorized, but say the wings remained.
Either the “vanishment” theory still stands but a lot of people (huge sectors like aeronautics, communications, satellites, airlines and aiports etc.) are entertaining non-standard explanations and so a little confusion is needed.
Or evidence has emerged somewhere on the event, and the response is the same, to create confusion to prevent the explanation from emerging. Or even to release encoded “real” information…
