(Before It's News)

Update: March 9, 6:00 P.M. ET

 

Late Sunday, the continued lack of answers — or even many clues — to the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 Boeing 777-200 aircraft’s disappearance added to misery of family members left behind.

 

“With Malaysian officials refusing to release many details of their investigation and sometimes presenting conflicting information, the families and friends of victims became increasingly frustrated, the New York Times reported late Sunday. (Emphasis added)

 

It is conceivable that the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 plane is “cloaked,” hiding with high-tech electronic warfare weaponry that exists and is used. In fact, this type of technology is precisely the expertise of Freescale, that has 20 employees on board the missing flight

Over 24 hours after the lost of contact with Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, the search and rescue teams are still unable to detect whereabouts of the missing aircraft. 

 

“The airline is doing its utmost to provide support to the affected family members, this includes immediate financial aid,” it said in a written statement.

 

The airline deployed a team of 94 caregivers, including well-trained staff and aTzu Chi Foundation members, to provide emotional support to the families. The airline said it will also be deploying another set of caregivers to Beijing later today.

 

Last night, a Malaysia Airlines’ Senior Management team arrived at Beijing to address the media and meet with family members.

 

Families of affected passengers in Kuala Lumpur were also met by the team.

 

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines will set up a command center at Kota Bharu, Malaysia or Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam as soon as the location of the aircraft is established and the airline will make the necessary arrangements.

 

The airline is continuously working with the authorities in providing assistance. In fearing for the worst, a disaster recovery management specialist from Atlanta, USA will be assisting Malaysia Airlines in this crucial time.

 

Earlier Sunday, March 09 at 2:00 AM MYT, Malaysia Airlines MH370 Flight Incident released its 6th Media Statement:

 

Sepang, 9 March 2014: Malaysia Airlines humbly asks all Malaysians and people around the world to pray for flight MH370.

 

It has been more than 24 hours since we last heard from MH370 at 1.30am. The search and rescue team is yet to determine the whereabouts of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft. 

 

An international search and rescue mission from Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam was mobilized yesterday morning. At this stage, they have failed to find evidence of any wreckage. The sea mission will continue overnight while the air mission will recommence at daylight.

 

We are dispatching all information as and when we receive it. The situation in Beijing is also being monitored closely. As many families of passengers are in China, we have deployed our “Go Team” to Beijing with a team of caregivers and volunteers to assist the family members of the passengers.

 

Once the whereabouts of the aircraft is determined, Malaysia Airlines will fly members of the family to the location. Travel arrangements and expenses of immediate family members will be borne by Malaysia Airlines. 

 

Our sole priority now is to provide all assistance to the families of the passengers and our staff. We are also working closely with the concerned authorities in the search and rescue operation

 

The families may contact +603 7884 1234 (Kuala Lumpur) / +8610 6437 6249 (Beijing)

 

Update: Malaysia Plane, Terrorism Probed

U.S. officials told NBC News on Saturday they are investigating terrorism concerns after two people listed as passengers on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet turned out not to be on the plane and had reported their passports stolen – one a year ago and the other two years ago.

 

Luigi Maraldi, 37, was the only Italian on a passenger manifest released by the airline after the Malaysia jet disappeared over the South China Sea.

 

His father, Walter Maraldi, however told NBC News from Cesena, Italy: “Luigi called us early this morning to reassure us he was fine, but we didn’t know about the accident. Thank God he heard about it before us.”

 

Luigi Maraldi is vacationing in Thailand, according to his father. He said that Luigi Maraldi’s passport was stolen one year ago.

 

The foreign ministry of Austria confirmed to NBC News that police made contact with another citizen on the passenger list, and who reported his passport stolen two years ago while traveling in Asia.

 

Update: Malaysian papers report Malaysian Flight MH370 crashed

The airline said in a statement early Saturday they are attempting to locate the Boeing 777 after it lost contact with Subang Air Traffic Control at 2:40 a.m. There was no distress signal before the plane, with 239 passengers, went down. One report said seven people on board had stolen passports, while it is confirmed that two people had stolen passports.

 

Vietnamese Navy confirmed that Malaysia Flight MH370, from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing, crashed into the sea off Tho Chu island.

 

Tuoi Tre quoted Navy Admiral Ngo Van Phat, Commander of Region 5, as saying that military radar reported that the plane crashed into the sea at a location 246km south of Phu Quoc island.

 

“The plane lost contact in Ca Mau province airspace before it had entered contact with Ho Chi Minh City air traffic control,” a statement posted on the official Vietnamese government website said.

 

The plane was meant to transfer to Ho Chi Minh City air traffic control at 1.22am Malaysian time but never appeared, the statement reported by AFP said, citing a senior Ministry of Defence official.

 

The Ministry of Defence launched rescue efforts to find the plane, coordinating work with Malaysian and Chinese officials.

 

 The missing Malaysian Airlines flight was carrying 152 Chinese, 38 Malaysians, 12 Indonesians, and three American among other nationalities, seven with stolen passports, according to latest reports.

 

The aircraft had left Kuala Lumpur at 12.41am and was scheduled to land in Beijing at 6.30am.

Worst Feared: Vanished Malaysian Plane Passengers Stole Passports, Oil Slick Found 

 

CNN and other outlets are reporting that several of the 239 people on board the missing commercial Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 were using stolen passports of citizens from Austria and Italy. As many as seven people on board had stolen passports. 

 

Italian foreign ministry says no Italian was on missing Malaysia flight, despite one Italian listed among passengers.

 

 Austrian foreign ministry says an Austrian citizen reported to be on Malaysian flight is safe in Austria. 

 

Three Americans are among the 239 passengers and crew aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight.

 

The search for the commercial jetliner that seemingly vanished without warning between Malaysia and Vietnam continued into last night as dark fell on Asia, officials said.

 

Nobody knows what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. Air traffic controllers lost track of soon after it left Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur on its way to Beijing.

 

Families and loved ones of the 239 passengers and crew aboard expected the worst as they await significant development. 

 

Last night, those family members and loved ones in Beiging were not at the airport waiting. Only press and reporters were there. They were then moved to a hotel for a press conference.

 

The area of search is focusing in the South China Sea, where Malaysian airspace and Vietnamese airspace meet.

 

“We have no idea where this aircraft is right now,” Malaysia Airlines Vice President of Operations Control Fuad Sharuji said on CNN’s “AC360.”

 

Later Saturday morning, however, Vietnamese authorities found a 12-mile long oil slick in the Gulf of Thailand, the first sign that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have crashed. The plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing, had 239 passengers on board

 

Bits and pieces of information have begun to form, such as stolen passports, but it remains unclear how they fit into the bigger picture of the missing plane.

      This thing smells like an assassination from the get go. Right off the bat, CNN is reporting stolen passports, before they even verified finding the wreck.

        The reported debris spotted is not that of the plane, according to officials.

      I dunno. You’re doing a good job of saying a lot of BS nonsense, like the plane being hidden by electronic warfare gear. Seems like you’re a hypocrite to me.

    • Rick

      HAARP is a kiddie project compared to Tesla’s technology called electromagnetic scalar and they are not the same. HAARP is merely a microwave atmospheric heater, scalar technology is far greater and can do much more. If you’re going to comment about this stuff at least know the difference and quit following things and stating them as fact because you saw it on YouTube or read about it from a source that didn’t understand it themselves. If you want to learn about the technology and what they’re doing with it and why then visit the section of my site at http://sandboxtactics.com/science/weather-control/

      • Deborah Dupre

        Thank you, Rick. Important for what you comment to be understood, but I’m not convinced either HAARP or scalar have anything to do with this event. There are many weapons being used that are not readily available for the public to know about.

  • Anonymous

    thanks for informing us, deborah. well written info here. sad story though. prayers are needed. i see whoever is good at checking for stolen passports, geez.

      Here’s what the NY Times said tonight that’s worth considering:

    Yet another plane crash directly related to the near presence of Nibitu. An EMP caused by Planet X.

    All is explained by new ZetaTalk posted early here: http://poleshift.ning.com/m/discussion?id=3863141%3ATopic%3A967649

    Once again.the Zetas shard the truth. It is clear why the.pole shift.Ning is despised by those still.covering.up the reality if Nibiru. The power elite do not want you to know so you can.make your own decisions while they prepare to save their own skins. What is coming soon: an official i
    announcement that Planet X and ETs are real and covered up. And ONLY ZETATALK predicted the announcement of Nibiru. President Obama has been trying for years to announce the truth but was stopped. China and USA and maybe Russia will announce it. That way even if elite manage to stop the USA again the world will still learn the truth. The truth cannot be stopped this time!!

    If you cant take a safety pin aboard a plane in case you use to detonate a nuclear bomb carried by the old lady that said the odds of two bombs on one plane are 2,000,000 to one so she always took her own.
    Then why are passports stolen over a year ago not flagged on the booking system when a credit card would be minutes after it was reported stolen?

    • Deborah Dupre

      Some security racket, isn’t it? All the nonsense and humiliation at airports must be about control and making money for machine makers, not security.

  • Earl Scheib

    The last words any of the passengers on that plane heard were Allah Akbar

  • Theodorizer

    If the accident was caused by an explosion, there probably would have been so much debris floating on the surface of the water that it would have been noticed by now. I enjoy watching flight disaster investigation documents from TV, and I imagine in a typical case, making a turnback without time to send a distress call could involve severe shaking, tiliting and perhaps plunge of the plane. Sudden loss of power, failed restarts and a subsequent turnback that has failed and ended in a stall is also possible, but in that case it is fair to assume that the distress call would have been made promptly after failed restarts.

    If the accident was caused by an act of terror, it would in my imagination involve hijacking the plane and making it plunge to the sea. But I don’t really think that terrorists would want to make suicide by a water-crash that may keep the life lingering for an extra minute or two and finishing in drowning. I know that there are documented cases of pilots making suicide that way, but I would say that the setting is psychologically different in that case, although I have barely any knowledge on that matter.

    Even if there had been a terror attack and a bomb had exploded, I don’t see any need for making the plane deliberately to vanish from radars (refering to any possible conspiracy theories), and the mentioned radar recordings seemed to indicate that the plane was well visible to radars during the distress. The turnback manouver isn’t made unless it is really necessary, so the plane has been well followed almost to the end of its flight capacity I would claim.

    I would say that it is quite obvious that the plane has plunged in a steep path to the sea, because it has vanished so quickly from the radars. And a plunge amid making a turn would practically mean an uncontrollable stall of the plane. If that it is true I suspect loss of power from one or both of the engines as the reason for turning back. Volcano ash is one possible culprit for jet engine failures, but the nearest active volcano, the Sinabung in Indonesia probably is too far away to cause significant trouble, unless the harm has been done already when leaving from Kuala Lumpur.

    But why turn back if a jet engine failure happened? There is no reason because Vietnam’s Ca Mau peninsula was closer. Unless the turnback was in fact made towards Vietnam’s coastline. I believe the Boeing 777 is capable of flying with one engine, but that could still pose a major challenge for doing the actual turning manoeuvres, especially if they are done too hastily and tilting the plane too much on the other side, and that easily sends the craft in a stall.

    Flying on one engine could explain why there has been no distress call, because for modern airplanes it hasn’t been thought to be any problem. So pilot error in a difficult situation is my hghly speculative guess for a highly hypothetical situation. :smile:

  • johndoey

    The problem is with idiots like you conspiracy nuts who THINK you know the real story, thats the kicker…..

    • Bob

      No, the problem is with ppl like YOU, who dont bother looking into things, but rather take the word of your beloved CNN and the like, as truth, as if they dont lie to you every day, all day.
      I dont see anyone here saying they KNOW what happened. But rather I see ppl wondering what happened, and are looking for answers.

  • NewIDTest

    “It is conceivable that the Malaysia plane is “cloaked,” hiding with high-tech electronic warfare weaponry that exists and is used”

    Agree. Glad I’m not the only one whose thinking and world view is based on the original Star Trek series. Think the Klingons were involved?

    • Deborah Dupre

      Hoped you actually read the story about cloaking, but judging from your comment, I guess not. Too bad Might have learned this possibility exists but is not mentioned as, of course, it’s part of Top Secret.

      Anyway, so much for all the air defense systems. Don;t we have enough billion dollars invested in satellites in space to detect such a huge object – or go back and look at data to see what happened?

      You really think this investigation is on the up and up and there’s nothing fishy about the story?

  • just a smart guy

    I wonder why there wasn’t a beacon sent out if there was a emergency. If the plane was hijacked I believe it would be the only way a beacon or the pilot could not be initiated or activated. I am not sure but the place probably has a stabilizer that notifies authorities upon impact. im not sure but something doesn’t sound right. hope the plane and or bodies can be returned so the families can have closure.

    • Deborah Dupre

      Hi Just, The only explanation for there being no beacon is not a comforting one: an act of violence occurred, making that impossible.

      I’m still hoping the plane and passengers are OK. Until I learn definitive proof that the plane disintegrated in air or on contact with the sea AND the story behind the passport thieves on board is revealed, I keep hoping.

  • makowski

    this plane was probably destroyed by advanced laser technology by the american or israeli government as a warning to china not to back russia in the crimea conflict. war always brings with it new and destructive technologies.

    According to the flight 370 manifest there were two men aged 45…passengers no. 20 & 23. They were both Ukrainian, the only Ukrainians on the flight. I am very familiar with aircraft construction. I was a technician on them for 4 years while in the Air Force. If the plane came down over water, the force of impact would have broken it apart. There are many flotation devices on the plane, such as fuel cells, foam insulation, and life jackets. I believe that investigators are looking in the wrong place.

    The communications could have been turned off. The plane could have been commandeered and flown north across vast areas of inhabitable mountain terrain and into perhaps Russia.

    The possibility is very feasible, that there is more to this than pilot error, or mechanical failure.

    Look what Putin has done. Communist China, North Korea, Iran, all have ties to Russia. Putin has taken over Crimea. The international community (those who respect freedom, democracy, and international law) is now taking a long hard look at what Russia has done. :(

    I truly hope that the future developments in our world are not now leading us into another World War.

    GOVERNMENT COVER UP!THE PLANE ALONG W/ALL PASSENGERS ARE MOST LIKELY BEING HELD FOR SOME, GOD ONLY KNOWS RANSOM.OR THEY HAVE HI-JACKED THE PLANE AND ALL READY DISPOSED OF ITS PASSENGERS.WE WILL NEVER KNOW THE REAL TRUTH,UNLESS IT IS SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A PLANE CRASH.AND AS “PAUL BROWN STATES BELOW,”The problem is that whatever the government tells us, we won’t know what the real story is.”

  • Opal53

    I See on the manifest that there were 2 passengers from The Ukraine. Co-incidence?

  • Opal53

    I See on the manifest that there were 2 passengers from The Ukraine and 1 Russian. Also at least 2 traveling on stolen passports. Very strange. We are not being told all the facts. Someone knows.

  • randydutton

    What do electric car’s have in common? Batteries that catch fire and explode. With 20 Freescale employees onboard, isn’t it possible they had some battery technology as cargo going to China? Perhaps that’s why the plane may have disappeared.

  • June

    The plane may have flown in a North West 10 degrees +/- direction, which seemed to have been it’s last direction before radar lost contact. The Russian International Airplane in KEMEROVO could have been the targeted landing location if the plane continued on that course. The flight to that location would have been over uninhibited mountainous terrain.

  • June

    To answer randydutton’s question:

    Jet aircraft have what is called “Turbine Generators”. They operate by the use of the airflow through it’s intake, or the engine’s intake. The main purpose is in maintaining flight controls. The rudder, ailerons, & flaps can still be controlled while the plane remains in the air.

      correction to my comment above: I meant to wirte, The Russian International *Airport*.

      • paul brown

        You probably also meant “uninhabited” rather than “uninhibited.” Not to worry, we understood.

        Paul Brown,

        I accidentally pressed the wrong button. :( I hope they don’t remove your message.

        Here was your message: “You probably also meant “uninhabited” rather than “uninhibited.” Not to worry, we understood.”

        Thanks for the correction….it’s my old age. :)

  • robobbob

    I don’t know about the cloaked part, but I might be willing to believe those Chinese electronics guys might be guests in a secret rendition location enjoying a nice relaxing round of waterboarding.

  • June

    At this point they have determined that the plane may have flown in the direction I had already suspected. I still believe that it may have flown far over land over mountainous terrain and into Kemerovo. Kemerovo is located in southern central Russian.

  • Squeezebox Babe

    Has anyone considered that the Rapture has taken place? The only holy good people on this earth possibly were in that airplane and God just took the whole airplane with all the people to heaven. I’m an atheist myself, but I’m just throwing this out there for those who are wondering what might have happened to that plane.
