As most regular readers here know, I am fascinated by the story of the disappearance of Malaysia Air Flight 370, which disappeared a little over four years ago on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with all people presumed dead. So when Mr. J.D., Mr. J.K., Mr. B. and several others brought to my attention that the Malaysian government has finally released its report about the flight, you knew I'd be blogging about it.

New Flight MH370 Probe Shows Controls Manipulated, But Mystery Remains Unsolved

MH370 Mystery Remains Unsolved Even As Probe Finds Controls "Manipulated"

We're essentially left where we were before, but with a few additional small details which should be reviewed before I indulge in my high octane speculation. From the Zero Hedge article, we're informed that the Malaysian government has concluded that the aircraft's controls were "manipulated," but it does not speculate as to how:

However one key irregular finding in the 495-page report is that the Boeing 777’s controls were most likely deliberately manipulated to take the plane off course, perhaps putting to rest theories of remote hijacking, which investigators behind the report also considered, noting only that "unlawful third party interference" could have possibly come into play related to the pilots' decision to turn back.

Kok Soo Chon, head of the MH370 safety investigation team, told reporters"We cannot exclude that there was an unlawful interference by a third party," in reference to the decision to divert the aircraft from the intended destination.

This suggests a hijacking or perhaps even a terrorist incident, except it lacks one crucial aspect of most hijackings or terrorist events: no one has stepped forward and claimed responsibility. The whole point of hijackings and terrorist incidents is to create publicity, not to ignore it altogether.

But then we learn something else, namely, that the Malaysian government has concluded that the aircraft's automatic navigational systems were turned off:

Chief investigator Chon said of the pilots' background and mental health, which the report spends considerable pages examining, "We are not of the opinion it could have been an event committed by the pilots." The report also summarized an extensive investigation into the health and potential criminal history of each of the passengers, but turned up nothing unusual.

Yet speaking at the press conference Chon still added that the findings weren't comprehensive enough to rule anything out, as the systems in the plane were manually turned off, and as the team was able to confirm the manual u-turn.

The map on the Zero Hedge article showing when civilian and military radar contacts were lost has been information that has long been known, and which, to this day, I cannot find any adequate explanation for. Perhaps I simply haven't read each and every article about the subject, but in any case, this map poses one of the central mysteries about whatever event happened to Flight 370. The civilian radar contact was lost while the flight was at roughly  20,000 feet altitude, and just beginning its turn back over the Malaysian peninsula. We know at least this aspect of the story is true, because in the aftermath of the event, some eyewitnesses did step forward to claim that they heard and/or saw a low-flying civilian airliner roaring across the peninsula at low altitude. Military radar contact was lost at the very low altitude of 1,000 feet, as the aircraft was on its west-southwest course. Note, that course does not take us to the environs of the Indian Ocean off the west coast of Australia. I've said it before, and I'll say it again (and the first time I said it was on the late George Ann Hughes' The Byte Show, within a week of 370's disappearance: if "they" start talking about a crash site in the Indian Ocean, worry, because that ocean is very deep, and it's the perfect way to salt a debris field, and/or disappear an aircraft through deliberate misdirection. to this date, I've not found any credible explanation as to why the search was conducted off the West Coast of Australia... Was radar contact re-restablished at some point? Were there eyewitnesses who saw it go down? Was there satellite reconnaissance photography or other information of a classified nature that could not be publicly shared? Exactly how did we get from a last known position southwest of the Malaysian peninsula, with the aircraft heading southwest, when the search areas were south and a little east of that position?

Of course, at the time I was asking those questions, I was advancing the very wild theory that the aircraft had, quite simply, gone "poof", perhaps the victim of some exotic technology. I wasn't the only one. American actor Richard Belzer and American radio talk show host George Noory co-authored a book called Someone is Hiding Something, in which they review several theories, including their own version of my "it just went poof" theory. Then of course, the "debris" was found washing up on the other side of the Indian Ocean, and the Malaysian ambassador responsible for collecting it and returning it to his home country ends up dead. Nothing to see here, move along. Private sources informed me that there were problems with some of that debris. I don't know, as I'm not a pilot nor very familiar with the design details of Boeing civilian airliners.

One this emerges from the reviews of the Malaysian government report - which I hope I'll be able to find copies of - and that is that it does not suspect external remote control or interference with the plane's controls. But at the same time, it also does not suspect that either the pilot or  first officer were involved in some sort of sinister suicide plot, though they do point out the odd fact that the captain had apparently been practicing the the flight on his flight simulator at home, as the second article states:

A 440-page final report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) last year showed that Zaharie had flown a route on his home flight simulator six weeks earlier that was “initially similar” to the one actually taken by MH370.

There is, however, a threadbare clue, perhaps, in these reviews, and that's the radar contact information itself. All versions of the story have pointed out that radio communications from the aircraft ceased at a certain point; prior articles have stressed that the Rolls Royce jet engines kept sending out their telemetry signals for a few hours after the flight (is this how we know the flight ditched in the Indian Ocean off of Australia? Again, no one knows, because no one, to my knowledge, has stated that). But what if the civilian and military radar contacts - and eventually even the Rolls Royce signals - were lost because the aircraft was surrounded by an ionizing plasma? Such a plasma would interfere with the flight crew's ability to communicate with the outside world, and would interfere with its onflight radar and GPS systems. It's very much the same sort of phenomenon experienced by space flight crews reentering the Earth's atmosphere, when for a few minutes radio contact is impossible due to the high heat plasma sheath surrounding the reentering vehicle. This might account for the loss of communication, and needless to say, would be condign to my "it just went poof" theory. If not, then that ionized plasma might be detectable by more sophisticated space-based technologies, in which case, as Mr. Belzer and Mr. Noory concluded in their book, Someone is Hiding Something.

See you on the flip side...

    There must be at least a half dozen militaries around the world that know exactly where this aircraft ended up. When did it become feasible to track every object in and above our atmosphere? 1990 at the latest? “Disappearance” is a cover story.

    I know two things about this incident. The first is that I was living with my husband in KL at the time the flight disappeared, and he was working with 2 of the people on board the flight, 1 of them closely in the days before it disappeared. They never returned to work. The second is that I talked with someone from the Maldives, and she said people there saw the plane low in the sky, and on fire, if my memory serves me correctly! I lived near the Petronas Twin Towers, and always wondered if they would be “the next to go”. They appear to be made from the same material as the tower in Dubai that went up in flames quickly, a few years ago. So I speculate the towers could have been the target, Rothschild patents aside, and the plane was remotely controlled away from them. Other gossip at the time said they landed in Nanking, China, or that something mysterious was loaded into cargo. I can’t read too much into the “lingo” they use in their reports. They speak an odd assortment of English, as my husband once said, “colonial English.”

    In order to coerce people into doing whatever they want, TPTB have to have the tools at hand to do so. Obviously the control files they have is one way for the ones that can’t control their dirty desires, but being able to demonstrate to people that travel is no longer safe for them (car, plane etc) due to remote access control would probably be enough for these ‘high flyers’ to submit as they simply need these services to conduct their ‘business’.
    I tend to think the most plausible option is probably the most fitting – it was taken control of and redirected to the DG installation.

    and how unusually asian and lacking blood all those bodies were.

      lets not forget that the number of ways for aircraft to go poof is expanding faster than computer memory

      freescale semiconductor much anyone?

    • Kahlypso on August 2, 2018 at 2:32 am

      didnt that russian guy in ukraine who brought that plane down.. say that the bodies were already in a state of decomposition of something.. Didnt the film the long kiss goodnight have something in it about a frozen arab body in a truck to make a bridge explosion looko like a terrorist act or something.. is that something that’s done??

      • goshawks on August 2, 2018 at 5:13 am

        I believe you have conflated a couple items. It was a woman first-responder who filmed and blogged about the ‘funny smelling’ (probably formaldehyde) bodies that were flaccid and not going into rigor mortis. It was a Ukrainian airport tower operator at Kiev who tweeted that he had overheard the shootdown orders, as well as observing a Su-25 leaving with air-to-air missiles (unusual) and returning without them. He basically ran-for-it after those tweets, and has not been heard from again…

  5. Margaret on August 1, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    I agree with Dr. Farrell, some sort of exotic weapon took the plane out. If one stretches their mind, there were some unidentified objects that night in that proximity. One particular was off the southern Chinese coast. But no one dare wants to go there. Planes can go poof more times than one might expect.

  6. marcos toledo on August 1, 2018 at 7:00 pm

    The idea of a remotely controlled airplane try the mid-fifties sci-fi film This Island Earth. As for airplane disappearing scenarios try the old Twilight Zone series episodes dealing with this idea there were several. The is always the question Cui Bono and what was the message being sent by this nefarious act.

    • zendogbreath on August 1, 2018 at 11:36 pm

      quite a few messages. don’t put all your patent holding executives of a darpa sponsored company on one aircraft going to china, especially if the biggest shareholder is rottenchildren who now own the patents. also keep an eye out for another (amazingly – what are the odds) similarly aircrafted incident that looks strangely like a staged aka false flagged even in which all the planet’s hiv experts were supposed to be onboard. wonder where all those folk are now.

    Malaysia might not know what happened to MH-370………….BUT SOMEBODY DOES!!!!!!

  8. goshawks on August 1, 2018 at 5:35 pm

    As usual, both cited articles deliberately overlook the most logical ‘destination’ for MH370: Diego Garcia. I wrote about the facts behind this scenario in the following comments:

    As a follow-on, MH17 was probably MH370 ‘reborn’ :
    gizadeathstar dot com/2018/04/gassed-spies-bombed-syria-and-a-few-problems/#comment-81422

    There were two big emphases in the articles:
    (1) “The report said there was no sign… that it was taken over by remote control.” However, this state-of-affairs would be almost impossible to verify or disprove by an outside party. So, “no sign” is a spin given to deceive the reader. It would be more honest to say “The report said it was unverifiable… whether it was taken over by remote control.”
    (2) “In all, 27 pieces of aircraft debris have been collected from various places around the world but only three wing fragments that washed up along the Indian Ocean coast have been confirmed to be from MH370.” This leaves the impression that there is no probability that the debris has been salted in the years since the crash. I could believe a fragment was Real that was collected within a week or so of the crash; not so much for one that appeared 2-4 years downstream. Plenty of time to doctor-one-up from scratch, including ‘distinguishing’ marks…

    Long live The Byte Show.

  10. Robert Barricklow on August 1, 2018 at 11:30 am

    I subscribe to two possible scenarios:
    shot down; or, went poof.
    Each has a military/deep state presence.
    One an accident, or experiment gone awry.
    The other, purposed and consequently its aftermath
    is still part of the ongoing coverup.

    But there’s third possibility…
    an unknown player?

    • Robert Barricklow on August 1, 2018 at 12:26 pm

      As an aside, but in alignment with the truth stranger than fiction themes prevalent among us; are the headlines at:

        California just changed their School Performance Index to “Color Codes” to judge how schools and students are doing. This just makes grading very generic where there is no clear information to interpret. Things are getting very creepy indeed.

  11. WalkingDead on August 1, 2018 at 6:08 am

    Near the North East corner of the Indian Ocean lurks the Wharton Basin, one of the 12 “vile vortices”, an area on Earth with great depths and largely unexplored, which has been the location of many “disappearances”. There is a total of 12 such places equidistant on the planet, including the two poles, where things have simply “gone poof”. No explanation why any pilot would fly into such an area.
    I know, a rather cheesy explanation for this event. There are many other seemingly valid reasons, as well, for this to have happened; all of which have been considered here.

    • WalkingDead on August 1, 2018 at 6:10 am

      I might add that it is an area which could lend itself to “plausible deniability” for more nefarious reasons.

  12. BetelgeuseT-1 on August 1, 2018 at 5:52 am

    I’m putting this one into the category of “we’ll most likely never know what happened to that plane and its passengers”.
    Although I support the possible scenario that it was remotely hijacked by some three-letter (or the one starting with “Mo”) agency, and flown via the Maldives to the Diego Garcia military base. What happened after that, who knows. As reported at the time. a plane similar to the 777 was seen by locals flying south, low over the Maldives.
    Then that story just disappeared, a clue in itself. Usually, the first initial stories are likely the correct ones. No “spin” applied, yet.
    Which brings us then to flight MH17 with early reports of decayed bodies smelling of formaldehyde. Pristine passports of Dutch passengers being found in the debris. A woman in a Dutch newspaper within hours of the disaster saying “Putin killed my son!”.
    What does all that up to?

    • BetelgeuseT-1 on August 1, 2018 at 6:10 am

      “What does all that ADD up to”?
