Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

The race is now on (2014 FORMULA 1 PETRONAS MALAYSIA GRAND PRIX)

Formula 1 holds one minute silence in honor of MH370

Quote:
Ahead of today’s Malaysian Grand Prix, the Formula 1 paddock has held one minute of silence in honor of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared 22 days ago whilst en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

With Malaysia’s focus lying mainly with the search for the missing airline, the sport has arrived at a tough period in the nation’s history and is looking to provide some light at a very dark time.

All of the teams and drivers are carrying tributes to the airline and its 239 passengers on their helmets and cars, showing the support that the sport is looking to provide at this time.

As part of the pre-race programme race on Sunday, one minute of silence was held before the Malaysian national anthem in honor of the passengers and crew that were on board flight MH370.

A number of concerts and events that had been planned in Kuala Lumpur as part of the Formula 1 programme were cancelled earlier this week as the nation continues to mourn in the wake of the flight’s disappearance.

“Our thoughts are with those who are missing, their loved ones and the tireless rescue workers,” an announcer said to the fans. “In their honor, the Prime Minister of Malaysia and the chairman of F1 Bernie Ecclestone and the teams will now lead a one minute silence.”

Following the minute’s silence, the Malaysian national anthem rang out over Sepang, with the national flag held at half mast.

Speaking earlier this week, Sepang International Circuit CEO Dato Razlan Razali said: “The Formula One fraternity recognizes and sympathizes with what we’re all going through.”

My interest in this thing has been reduced to checking this thread once in a while. We get some bullshit about another satellite seeing something every fucking day.

Just because they didn't find anything "sinister" doesn't mean the captain is innocent.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

Despite all the debris that has been spotted and with no confirmation that it is from 370 the possibility that the plane has touchdowned somewhere remains....Remember all the satellite information is best guessing and its never been declared as a positive record of 370's final flight path.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

Im starting to think the plane sunk relatively intact, similar situation to the landing in the river in n.y (I know how next to impossible that was) but with the passengers killed by decompression or some other means.

Maybe they wanted to create a mystery?

Missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370: Secret services involvement in investigation sparks terrorism speculation.


Sunday 30 March 2014:




Malaysian authorities have revealed secret services from the UK, the US and China have been involved in the investigations into the disappearance of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, adding to speculation that the plane’s disappearance could be down to terrorism.

MI6, the CIA and Chinese agencies have been looking into the flight simulator found in the home of the flight’s Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, though acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein said the FBI has found nothing sinister in the device.

He said the Inspector General of Police has highlighted the “four possible scenarios of what could have caused the plane to disappear, which are terrorism, hijacking, personal and psychological problems, or technical failure.

“These scenarios have been discussed at length with different intelligence agencies,” he added.

Meanwhile, Chinese relatives of the passengers on board the missing Malaysia airlines flight MH370 have flown to Kuala Lumpur in frustration to try and find answers from authorities, as an American naval officer has said the search could take years.

The relatives claim they have not been given enough new information from authorities dealing with the search, and on Sunday held a press conference in which they held up banners and the Chinese flag, chanting: “We want evidence, truth, dignity.”

The group, of which some have accused Malaysian withholding information, held up banners that read: “You must return relatives of MH370, no strings attached”.

They have demanded an apology from authorities for its handling of the disaster, and for Prime Minister Najib Razak’s earlier statement that suggested the plane had crashed with no survivors.

Two-thirds of the 227 passengers on board the flight that went missing on 8 March were Chinese. Jiang Hui, the relatives’ designated representative, said the group felt the decision that there would be no survivors was made without sufficient evidence.

Malaysia’s acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein said on Saturday the search for survivors would continue, claiming “we are hoping against hope that we will find survivors”.

But a U.S. naval officer on Sunday suggested the search could take years.

U.S. Navy Captain Mark Matthews told journalists at Stirling Naval Base in Perth, Australia: “Right now the search area is basically the size of the Indian Ocean, which would take an untenable amount of time to search.”

He added: “If you compare this to the Air France flight 447, we had much better positional information of where that aircraft went into the water.” The Air France flight which crashed in 2009 near Brazil was missing for two years before it was found.

Captain Matthews is in charge of the U.S. Towed Pinger Locator (TPL), an unmanned underwater vehicle designed to locate the aircraft’s black box, which can trace pings emitted from as deep as 6,000 meters underwater. It has been loaded onto the Australian warship Ocean Shield as it sets off to the search area along with other acoustic detection equipment.

Ships from China and Australia managed to retrieve “objects from the ocean” on Saturday, but none have been “confirmed or related” to flight MH370, according to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which is overseeing the search.

There are now 10 ships and 10 aircraft searching a massive area in the Indian Ocean to the west of Perth, in a race to find the crucial black box recorder before its batteries are expected to die in the coming days.

The search zone is roughly the size of Poland and it is expected to take Ocean Shield three to four days to travel the 1,150 miles from Perth to reach the designated area.

The black box could hold the key to understanding what happened to the flight when it disappeared three weeks ago. The device consists of two boxes that record vital information; one is a cockpit recorder that stores conversations and other noises from the area, while the other records a stream of flight information.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

Objects seen in jet search are fishing equipment.


PERTH, Australia (AP) -- A cluster of orange objects spotted by a search plane hunting for any trace of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet turned out to be nothing more than fishing equipment, Australian officials said Monday, the latest disappointing news in a weekslong hunt that Australia's prime minister said will continue indefinitely.

The crew of an Australian P-3 Orion search plane spotted at least four orange objects that were more than 2 meters (6 feet) in size on Sunday, and the pilot, Flight Lt. Russell Adams, dubbed the sighting their most promising lead in the search for Flight 370. But on Monday, Jesse Platts, a spokesman for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, said the objects had been analyzed and officials had confirmed "they have nothing to do with the missing flight."

It's a frustrating pattern that has developed in the hunt for the Boeing 777, which vanished on a night flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 with 239 people aboard: Search crews have repeatedly spotted multiple objects floating in remote patches of the southern Indian Ocean, only for officials to later confirm they aren't linked to the missing plane.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Monday acknowledged the search was incredibly complex, but said officials were "well, well short" of any point where they would scale the hunt back.

On Wednesday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak plans to travel to Perth to see the search operations firsthand.

The search for Flight 370 has evolved over the past three weeks as experts sifted through a limited set of radar and satellite data, moving gradually from the seas off Vietnam, to waters west of Malaysia and Indonesia, and then to several areas west of Australia.

"This is an extraordinarily difficult exercise .... we are searching a vast area of ocean and we are working on quite limited information," Abbott said, adding that the best brains in the world and all the technological mastery is being applied to the task.

"If this mystery is solvable, we will solve it," he said.

He said the search that has been going on for more than three weeks is operating on guestimates "until we locate some actual wreckage from the aircraft and then do the regression analysis that might tell us where the aircraft went into the ocean."

Ten planes were either over the search zone or heading there by late Monday afternoon, and another 11 ships were scouring the area, about 1,850 kilometers (1,150 miles) west of Australia. More than 100 personnel in the air and 1,000 sailors at sea were involved in Monday's hunt, with some sections of the 253,000 square kilometer (98,000 square mile) search zone expected to experience low clouds and rain. It takes planes about 2 1/2 hours to get to the area, allowing a five-hour search before they must return to Perth.

Former Australian defense chief Angus Houston on Monday began his job of heading the new Joint Agency Coordination Center, which will oversee communication with international agencies involved in the search. The Perth-based center will position Australia to shoulder more of Malaysia's coordination responsibilities as the search drags on.

Houston will also play a prime coordination role when victims' families travel to Australia in the weeks ahead.

Abbott said he was not putting a time limit on the search. "We owe it to everyone to do whatever we reasonably can and we can keep searching for quite some time to come ... and, as I said, the intensity of our search and the magnitude of operations is increasing, not decreasing."

The Ocean Shield, an Australian warship which is carrying a U.S. device that detects "pings" from the flight recorders, was expected to leave Perth on Monday evening for the search zone, a trip that will take three to four days. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which is coordinating the search, said it would first conduct sea trials on Monday afternoon to test the search equipment on board.

The search area remains vast, so investigators are hoping to first find debris floating on the ocean surface that will help them calculate where the plane crashed into the water.

Meanwhile, several dozen Chinese relatives of Flight 370 passengers visited a Buddhist temple near Kuala Lumpur on Monday to pray for their loved ones. They offered incense, bowed their heads in a moment of silence, knelt several times during the prayers and lowered their heads in kowtows. Buddhist nuns handed out prayer beads to them. "You are not alone," one nun said. "You have the whole world's love, including Malaysia's."

Several of the relatives were overcome with emotion, tears streaming down their faces.

The family members later made a brief statement to journalists, expressing their appreciation to the Chinese government and the people of Malaysia and the volunteers who have been assisting them. They bowed as a show of gratitude, but also said they were still demanding answers.

"To those who are guilty of harming our loved ones, hiding the truth, and delaying the search and rescue, we will also definitely not forgive them," said a family representative, Jiang Hui.

The relatives' comments Monday were seen as a small conciliatory move after they staged an angry protest in front of reporters on Sunday at a hotel near Kuala Lumpur. At the time, they chanted slogans, raised banners and called on the Malaysian government to apologize for what they dubbed missteps in the handling of the disaster.
