    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

    MH370 - Must Read This

     

    1. Plane sounded a "ping" somewhere along the "arc", but that somewhere could be just a few kilometers from the Malaysian peninsula. The only reason the searches are being conducted in the middle of nowhere in the Indian Ocean is, because a BIG ASSUMPTION was made by the investigators that the plane maintained its vector - more or less, i.e. that the plane travelled for a number of hours in one direction. What if it did not? The plane could have travelled in loops (yellow arrows in the schematic) and at varying heights climbing up and down and ended up at the same spot as where it started. In other words, look LOT closer to the last radar contact for the plane.

     

    2. If plane was controlled by any person - a pilot or a hijacker, or any human being then they would not have flown precisely towards nothing. Why? Even if there were no guiding instruments present they would have known by a simple compass or the direction of daybreak to the east as to which way to fly. Also, a flight path that is random especially one that involved rapid altitude change would indicate struggle either between individuals or with equipment. In either case the plane would be flying in loops rather than in a straight path.

     

    3. If the object of the individual(s) in control was to crash then it would not have taken them hours!

     

    4. Equipment failure is, therefore the more likely cause. There is almost no discussion about what kind of equipment failure could have occured and what the respective consequences would be for each.

     

    5. So, look for the plane close to the last radar contact and on the "ping arc" and list out the probabilities of various equipment failures.
