I find this to be one of the more significant stories, and more to be to told, of 2014.

Disparate Theories on Fate of Jet as Search Grows

Excerpt:
The overnight flight left Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing early Saturday and disappeared from radar about one hour after takeoff. No distress signal was sent, officials have said.

Steve Vickers, the chief executive of a Hong Kong-based security consulting company that specializes in risk mitigation and corporate intelligence in Asia, said the presence of at least two travelers with stolen passports aboard a single jet was rare and a potential clue.

The relatives have every right to be pissed. The passports were known to be stolen for two years yet they were allowed the get on the plane. The airline should be boycotted right out of business and the owners charged with abetting terrorism, then hung.

Dear Micros:
In a generation, you will be accepted just as other "locals" (Flips, Japs, Chinks, Pochos, Yobos, etc.).
Be glad you are not Haole. They will never be accepted because of...of...well, the fact that they are Haole.

What is your special name for the ethnic group of these passengers and the people who live adjacent to the crash site?

LOL,What makes you think they need to be "accepted" by the likes of you? More than likely they will marry your daughter whether you accept it of not.

A very rigid opinion you have.

"Abetting terrorism." Prove it.

lol...you haole-haters hate yourselves, not us. Funny how that happens, eh? Time to grow up and get some sense.

The passports are the key. Looks like a massive coverup gone wrong.

Passports could be the key. Who knows at this point?

Being that there's a flotilla assembled from various countries and nothing yet in the way of a confirmation of said flight is astonishing.

feel the apparent need to be accepted, judging by the Haoles who whine about being stereotyped and not treated here like they are "back home."
It's fine if you could truly accept being treated how you treat "minorities," but y'all don't seem to be all that comfortable with that thought.

This seems impossible that this occurrence could actually take place. But it has.

False Leads Set Back Hunt for Missing Malaysian Jet

Excerpt
SEPANG, Malaysia — The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner was set back on Monday by a number of false leads that seemed to underline how little investigators knew about the whereabouts of the plane, which vanished on Saturday.

The failure so far to locate any trace of the aircraft raised questions about whether the ships, planes and helicopters searching the waters south of Vietnam, some of them using highly sophisticated equipment, were looking in the right place.

They can be sure of one thing, the plane isn't in the air. They should find out if any of Obama's enemies was on board. Remember Ron Brown?

HOW in 2014 can a large jetliner go missing?

They have transponders to prevent collisions don't they have onboard beacons to identify their location at all times?

This is a $250,000,000 dollar airplane with 239 people on board.

The GM OnStar product tracks ALL cars in it's system, why don't the airlines buy an OnStar service to allow tracking of the phocking airplanes?

This situation IS very disturbing...

The plane is probably on the ocean bottom where no transponder signal can reach the surface.

Understood, but prior to sinking the signal could have identified its location.

"Waiting for the Black Box"

Excerpt
Black boxes, which in fact are usually painted bright orange, contain digital flight data and are indispensable in accident investigations. But it’s worth asking why, in this era of instant wireless communication, investigators must hunt down a physical object that stays on board the plane? Why isn’t black-box data transmitted in real time?

Such technology exists. According to The Wall Street Journal, a few hundred airplanes around the world have already been outfitted to stream live data via satellite, shortening the agonizing wait for answers in the event of disaster.

Good point. It would be known possibly why it crashed or at least what was going on in the cockpit AND systems. I suppose ALPA wouldn't approve of cockpit monitoring, what happens in the cockpit stays in the cockpit ya know. Those long nighttime flights when the flight attendents disappear into the cockpit. I recall when NWA plane did a barrel roll the onboard info was deleted.

The planes location should also be known, like I say OnStar tracks all cars using the service why not airplanes?
