It's been reported that 2 oil slicks have been spotted in the area that the plane was lost. May God bless the people on board.

About 35 minutes after takeoff. Well after it reached 35,000 ft cruising altitude.

Although I am surprised we're not hearing of terrorist groups claiming responsibility at this point.

The Islamic terrorists have been poking China lately. Last week was that crazy stabbing incident at a train station, and now a plane bound for China. I don't think they will find China plays as nice as we do.

Whole story's a hoax!!




See... that flight is still showing as being scheduled for tomorrow.






Plus, I heard the government's not letting us in there to see for ourselves what evidence there is, like they're covering up what really happened and shit.

Kind of my thoughts on the matter. 777's are tremendously reliable aircraft. No distress signal??????? Whatever the cause, it was instantaneous. May those on board rest in peace. Prayers for all involved. In the event it was a terrorist act, may the parties involved burn in hell.

I dont know...Israel seems to be a tamed lion. One day, once provoked, will snap. Whereas China is and always be a dragon, stealthfully waiting for its prey to reveal itself - and its powers come merely from its size and resilience.

Israel defends itself and gives the illusion of waiting in the background. China will simply send out forces to neutralize their enemies. It will be much easier for them if there are associated groups in their country.

The group responsible for the train station attack was an internal ethnic group. If deemed necessary, thousands will disappear

Missing Malaysia plane 'may have turned back'
Authorities "fearing the worst", as radar displays indicate the aircraft could have turned around before disappearing.
Last updated: 09 Mar 2014 05:56

Missing Malaysia plane 'may have turned back' - Asia-Pacific - Al Jazeera English

Malaysian authorities announced that they were now investigating the possibility a missing Malaysian Airlines plane had turned back before disappearing, and were widening the search area accordingly.

As the search of the Malaysia Airlines flight continues into a second day on Sunday, Malaysian aviation authorities said it was "fearing the worst" and that radar displays indicated the plane could have turned around.

Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler, reporting from Kuala Lumpur, said the search would now be extended to the west coast of Malaysia.

"This raises a lot of unanswered questions," he said. "If the pilots had the wherewithal to turn around why did they not communicate with any of the towers. Still the officials saying there wasn't a distress call."

No weather problems had been reported in the area before the plane dropped out of contact, and the pilots did not send a distress signal - something that has been highlighted by experts as unusual for a modern jetliner.

There was still no confirmed sighting of wreckage from the Boeing 777 in the seas between Malaysia and Vietnam where it vanished from screens early Saturday morning en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

The identities of four passengers on board the missing jetliner are being investigated over 'airline security fears' as planes and ships from across Asia resumed the hunt for the plane that disappeared with 239 people on board.

Stolen passports

Foreign Ministry officials in Rome and Vienna said names of two nationals listed as passengers matched passports reported stolen in Thailand. Malaysian Transport Minister Hishamuddin Hussein said authorities were also checking the identities of two other passengers.

"All the four names are with me," said Hishamuddin, who is also defence minister. "I have indicated to our intelligence agencies and I have also spoken to international intelligence agencies for assistance."

He said help was also being sought from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). However, an attack was only one of the possibilities being investigated.

"We are looking at all possibilities," he said. "We cannot jump the gun. Our focus now is to find the plane."

Vietnamese naval boats sent from the holiday island of Phu Quoc patrolled stretches of the Gulf of Thailand, searching for any wreckage, scouring the area where an oil slick was spotted by patrol jets just before nightfall on Saturday.

On Sunday, the search efforts were increased, with 22 aircraft and 40 ships from various authorities now scouring the original search area and the area to the west that could have been reached if the plane did turn around.

Li Jiaxiang, administrator of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, said some debris had been spotted, but it was unclear whether it came from the plane.

Vietnamese authorities said they had seen nothing close to two large oil slicks they saw Saturday and said might be from the missing plane.

Finding traces of an aircraft that disappears over sea can take days or longer, even with a sustained search effort.

Terrorism is always considered a possibility, but the sudden disappearance of Flight MH370 has given extra emphasis to speculation a bomb might have been on board.

Wow. So it is up to four passengers now that they are investigating.

I believe this "turning back" is the radar pings from the plane veering upon explosion and subsequent non controlled flight. Doesn't make sense that it "turned back" with the pilots in control with no distress signal.

OR it could be krazy reflections off various pieces of the plane/wreckage as it was falling outta control, maybe some of them spinning wildly....
