SFGate - Skydiver, pilot treated after midair accident: http://tinyurl.com/oocz2vd
I have two observations to make. First, the article says the collision took place about 75' midair. The video shows more like maybe 25'.
2nd-ly, the names. The pilot-in-training is an 87-year-old whose last name is Trembley?
The man sky-diving is 49-year-old John Frost. Where else would Jack Frost go skydiving but in Florida, right?
So here we are inside of the Retirement State with a 49-year-old Jack Frost colliding mid-air with a Trembley 87-year-old.
I'm waiting next for Jack to get hit by a Hot Air Balloon while climbing the Beanstalk. The pilot will be someone up in age.
Nice one-point landing.
Um... what? John Frost becomes Jack Frost for you, and after making this stoopid and disjointed statement you stand there expecting praise for yet another contribution of no significance???? Ok, let me try it...

Jeb Bush was seen talking to Mickey at Disney World the other day. Harry Bush would've been a better name for him so that's what I just wrote. Harry Bush was seen taking a Mickey at Disney World the other day... yeah.. yeah.. that's it... Get it? Harry Bush?... taking a Mickey! YEAH! Boo-yah! SCORE! Take that you.. you.. you pointy headed liberal scum!

What about the fact that you haven't got the authority to tell a dog to sit? The hierarchy worship is a big part of republican culture, I grant you. Who's going to passively listen to YOUR son or daughter telling them what to do unless you promise to shoot them if they don't? That's why Mormons make such good soldiers and spies, you can pretty much tell them to do anything and they'll be out there with bells on the next day doing it.

You're the racist. Rather than admit you made an abominable mistake, a mistake based on race, you blame us and his color, for his inadequacies.
So, you are saying that since most racists are Republican that those voting against Obama because of race would have done so anyhow?

Well tell that to The Firemen, Police Officers and Soldiers who are on the front lines and have to carry/pull the dead weight of one who can't pull their own.

Not when it comes to Firefighters, and The Military Front Lines they don't.

I'm referring to the physical abilities, skills in these "Lines" that it takes to save lives.

We Know Obamacare Is Not At All Like Slavery
The most well-received remarks at this year’s CPAC were indubitably Rand Paul’s, who was likely test driving his Republican National Convention nominee acceptance speech. Barely trailing him in cheers, applause and audience size was Dr. Ben Carson. Carson is known as one of the most accomplished physicians of his time, but is building momentum as a rising star among conservatives. Hotel room keys and the shuttles to Union Station are adorned with Carson’s face, next to slogans endorsing him for president in 2016. During his speech, enthusiasts held up signs that read,“Run, Ben, run!” and the ballroom’s sudden swelled in size from onlookers and supporters. Carson’s relaxed mannerisms and tightly focused speech make him a natural, if unlikely, politician, and his prodigious career in medicine certainly qualifies him to discuss health care policy. But President? CPAC has had no shortage of eyebrow-raising moments, but that is the most unconventional one yet. Though Republicans once nominated a former Hollywood actor who went on to be a two-term president, so anything is possible.
Dr. Carson hit his talking points with airstrike precision, to the delight of his audience, who punctuated nearly every point he made with an ovation. Carson disparaged political correctness, likely a nod to the social conservatives who have been feeling that their place in public discourse is increasingly restricted as of late. And then, predictably, he launched into his tirade against Obamacare. And that was precisely when he lost anyone with a level head who has been following Carson’s ascendancy with interest.
Carson referenced—and defended—his claim that Obamacare is the worst thing to happen to this society since slavery, calling anyone who believes that he equated the two institutions a “dummy”. Aside from that claim being patently false—there were a number of things that were nearly as bad as slavery, but none so awful as slavery itself—it is an irresponsible claim to make as a physician. Doctors are trusted to be objective and rely on facts to make decisions on courses of treatment. The fact that Carson was willing to wade into the political fray, making claims that can be easily misconstrued is alarming. Anyone hoping that Carson would bring some balance and perspective to the blaring rhetoric from CPAC this weekend was in for a disappointment.
Carson’s best-selling books—the nonpolitical ones—are nothing like his speeches, and the vast disparity between the two personas is unsettling. The pediatric neurosurgeon whose memoirs I read as a child emphasized self-reliance, hard work, and trust in Providence to achieve the impossible. The speaker today was a speech away from running for office on fearmongering and repealing Obamacare. I was hoping to see more of the man I trusted to perform a complex operation instead of a pedantic speaker that validated the borderline irrational whims of CPAC attendees.

At least if it is an "act of Terror", there is a chance the plane was forced to land somewhere rather than crash in the ocean. I'm an optimist so I'll go with that scenario.
Not sure about the debris you mentioned. CNN reported that "a strange object spotted by a Singaporean search plane late Sunday afternoon is not debris from the missing jetliner." Don't know if that is the same "debris" you are referencing. I see now where officials are looking into the possibility that the plane changed course.
In the meantime, Malaysia Airlines has confirmed that they "have the visuals of the two people using stolen passports and Inerpol has confirmed those two bought their tickets together. Anything is possible. I feel for the families. This is agonizing for them.
do you doubt that the NSA knows exactly what happened to the plane???...

your scenario that it landed somewhere without detection is lunacy.....
