Malaysia Airlines 370 In New Location, Military Intel Adds Puzzle Piece (Photos)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The missing Malaysia jetliner flew for hours longer than first reported and has been tracked by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where making last contact, according to a military source, as crowdsourcing is urged for public involvement in solving the unprecedented vanishing plane mystery.


“It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait,” the military official, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.


Search for missing jet is now focused ‘on the West Peninsular of Malaysia at the Straits of Malacca, according to Malaysia Airlines. The Strait of Malacca runs along Malaysia’s west coast. The airline said Saturday that radio and radar contact with Flight MH370 was lost off Malaysia’s east coast, near the town of Kota Bharu.


Police were investigating four possibilities: whether any passengers or crew on the plane had personal or psychological problems, a hijack, sabotage, and mechanical failure.


Co-pilot enetertained passengers in cockpit


One of the most interesting new clues is that Malaysia Airlines co-pilot of the missing plane had previously let passengers sit in the cockpit during flight, according to A CurrentAffair 9 and


Fariq Ab Hamid, the co-pilot of missing flight MH370 had a lax attitude to security, to say the least. South African Jonti Roos, who flew with Hamid on a 2011 Malaysia airlines flight, told the Wall Street Journal that both he and the captain of that earlier flight invited her and a friend into the cockpit with them:


“My friend and I were I invited into the cockpit by (the) pilot and co-pilot, Fariq Ab Hamid, and sat there for the duration of the flight from takeoff until landing,” Ms. Roos said in a Facebook message sent to The Wall Street Journal. She said at least one of the pilots was smoking during the flight.


“My friend and I were allowed to take photos in the cockpit without intervention, but didn’t in any way distract the pilots from their duties,” she said.


Ms. Roos said she didn’t question the flight crew’s professionalism; didn’t feel unsafe during the flight; and wasn’t trying to imply Mr. Fariq had any role in the disappearance of Flight MH370. She expressed sympathy to the families of those aboard.

Satellite Imaging Company Crowdsources Search


ABC News reports satellite-imaging company DigitalGlobe is collecting photos taken Saturday from the region where Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was last heard, and making them available to the public to  crowdsource the search for flight MH370.


The Colorado-based company is publishing the images on a website, Tomnod for anyone to sift through and flag any photo that looks suspicious from a collection gathered by five satellites.


“For people who aren’t able to drive a boat through the Pacific Ocean to get to the Malaysian peninsula, or who can’t fly airplanes to look there, this is a way that they can contribute and try to help out,” said Luke Barrington, senior manager of Geospatial Big Data for DigitalGlobe. (ABC News report)


Tomnod has issued a statement on Facebook: “Help search DigitalGlobe satellite images to find signs of the plane or its 239 passengers here: The invitation has generated so much traffic from around the world by people wanting to help, there are technical difficulties, according to comments on Facebook.


Facebook user Chiit Chaat commented about the technical problem, “totally disheartening. tried to help, yet your servers arent anywhere near good enough. cant you get more some how , any how? thousands want to help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! dooooooooooooooooooooooooo something !!!!!”


The plane left Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early Saturday morning, vanishing from civilian radar screens about an hour after takeoff, over the sea between eastern Malaysia and Vietnam’s southern tip.


There was no distress signal, no radio contact indicating a problem, no wreckage, nor flight data.


Two Stolen Passports Used by Non-terrorist Iranians, Possibly Others With Stolen Passports


“At least two passengers,” according to Reuters, had used stolen passports, confirmed by Interpol. This raised suspicions of foul play. Southeast Asia, however, is known as a hub for false documents that are also used by smugglers, illegal migrants and asylum seekers. (Emphasis added)


Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad and Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, young Iranian males. were traveling on false passports.

Police chief Khalid said one had been identified as a 19-year-old Iranian, Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, who appeared to be an illegal immigrant.


“We believe he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group, and we believe he was trying to migrate to Germany,” Khalid said of the teenager. His mother was waiting for him in Frankfurt and had been in contact with authorities, he said.


Asked if that meant ruling out a hijack, Khalid said: “(We are giving) same weightage to all (possibilities) until we complete our investigations.”


Tuesday, Interpol named Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, 29, as the second Malaysia Airlines jet passenger traveling on a stolen passport.



Both young men entered Malaysia on Feb 28, eight days before boarding the flight to Beijing, according to immigration chief Aloyah Mamat at a news conference.


Both had reservations to travel onward to Western Europe. 


Malaysia’s police chief, Inspector General Khalid Abu Bakar, said the younger Iranian was “not likely to be a member of a terrorist group”, adding that the authorities were in contact with his mother in Germany, who had been expecting her son to arrive in Frankfurt.


Speaking in Paris later on Tuesday, Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said the two men had travelled from Qatar’s capital Doha on their Iranian passports, and switched to stolen Italian and Austrian passports to board the Malaysia Airlines flight.


“These two individuals were probably not terrorists,” Interpol secretary general Ronald Noble.“The more information we get, the more we are inclined to conclude it is not a terrorist incident.” 


Nevertheless, the possibility would exist that this tragic event is a false flag for the U.S. to go to war against Iran, as planned for years.



Police in Thailand, where the passports were stolen and the tickets used by the two men were booked, said they did not think they were linked to the disappearance of the plane.


“We haven’t ruled it out, but the weight of evidence we’re getting swings against the idea that these men are or were involved in terrorism,” Supachai Puikaewcome, chief of police in the Thai resort city of Pattaya, told Reuters.


While officials have all but ruled out terrorism, CNN’s National Security reporter Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) says US officials tell him the stolen passports used to board MH370 fit the pattern of human trafficking.


Left with few other clues, investigators have been scrutinizing passenger and crew lists for potential leads.


“Maybe somebody on the flight has bought a huge sum of insurance, who wants family to gain from it or somebody who has owed somebody so much money, you know, we are looking at all possibilities,” Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar told a news conference.


“We are looking very closely at the video footage taken at the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport), we are studying the behavioral pattern of all the passengers.”

      Using, one person video’d the flight path of this plane and it DID NOT go the route that this “military source” says. (for some reason that site isn’t working this morning. I wonder if it is too much of a threat to the manipulators)

      • Deborah Dupre

        Yes! I saw that and hesitated – then lost it. So why would military steer people in wrong direction? I also wondered why the “military source” was anonymous/

      • apache5

        maybe the hijacked plane was taken to a landing strip and could be retrofitted for a very nasty use in the future. it would be very easy to come up on a real passenger jet later, and take it out and then take its place to fly into a populated area to drop or use itself as a bomb, don’t laugh this is ONE of many ways that they have been worried about for a long time. maybe it is now going to become real!

        • CrowPie

          That is a legitimate concern. Anyone who refuses to acknowledge it as such is lying to themselves.

    • paul brown

      There have been, and there will be, many disagreeing reports on where it went. We shall see (maybe).

    • Faye

      Now what sounds plausible to me … is that the four people using stolen pass ports and those plus twenty people on board the plane said to be involved in cutting edge electric technology … these in their knowledge of technology may have activated an electrical charged field around the craft causing it to vanish from one sky position and land in some other location on the planet …

    • jupiterhound

      Something is definitely WRONG with this whole scenario. Why are we hearing 4 days after the crash that the plane was last spotted in an entirely different location? Also, if the plane changed course and went back over Malaysia, were military planes scrambled to shadow a wayward passenger plane? I haven’t heard anything about that either. I think this will only get more bizarre.

    • Factory Farms FEAR the MooCow

      Malaysia Airline got abducted by that giant aircraft carrier size UFO Airship.

      Just like JAL in Alaska back in the 80′s that UFO thing tried to abduct that cargo plane too.

      But this time it was successful and all those people are probably wailing gnashing their teeth because of those alien nephilim things doing unspeakable mating rituals to each passenger for breeding purposes. :???:

    • Robert Fallin

      The aircraft has transponders, every major country in the world has spy satellites, if cell phones “ring,” it should be a snap to triangulate its position. This is nonsense, even less convincing than the usual “false flag”.


      My guess is the plane will have been believed to have been landed in Vietnam and the passengers taken elsewhere. It sounds like the news media is spinning the information:”Maybe a passenger bought a large insurance policy for his family!” Sounds very strange to me.


      This is without a doubt a “spook” mission. Let there be no misunderstanding about it-THIS IS AN ENTIRELY 100% SPOOK OP.

    • LifeIs

      Let us not forget that planes can continue flying, after the pilots are dead or incapacitated.

      Even without auto-pilot, the plane will continue to do whatever it was trimmed to do.

      Until it crashes for one reason or another.

    • Authentica

      Here is an interesting take on this mystery from

      Q. Could you please do a reading on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that is reported to have crashed in the South China Sea on 8 March 2014.Was it an accident or was it deliberate sabotage ? [I will continue to monitor the questions/comments and update as necessary. Please scroll to the bottom for the most current posting.]

      A. When I tune in, my mind is at the point of the flight where issues start to arise. I see that there is a huge electrical disturbance. What looks like a clear day turns into this dark, gloomy surrounding. It looks like heat lightening and flashes surround the plane. I also see what looks like discharges of static electricity coming off the plane. The flight attendants are trying to stand, and people are trying to stand and grab something above their heads? It is chaotic and a lot of turbulence. Oxygen masks then start to fall. Then there is this loud thundering sound that is so deafening that people are grabbing the sides of their head (I feel the pain in my ear, like it is loud and so much pressure!)

      Then all of a sudden there is this silence- It is so quiet and calm. No one is talking, there is no noise. It is the ultimate peaceful feeling. I don’t even hear the noise of the plane- as if the engine isn’t even running. It feels like the plane is gliding, there is no turbulence. Like it is floating so peacefully through the air.

      I can’t help but feel like this plane went into a different layer or dimension of our current existence [I realize this is a very alternative concept, but I just report what I see]. I see the jungle, and what I notice most are the leaves. The passengers are looking at the vegetation is complete amazement, but not in complete horror, but rather amazement. They are gigantic. The climate feels warm and humid, but rather comfortable. I also have the images of the plane on a beachy coast as if it coasted to a graceful landing. I can’t get the images of show Lost out of my mind, as if the fundamental situation may be similar…

      Q. Many people are very suspicious about what happened and do not believe it was an accident due to suspicious circumstances and coincidences surrounding the flight. Such as 2 passengers on the flight having fake passports from Thailand. Also the pilot was interviewed and photographed with a CNN reporter 1 week before the crash.
      A. As I focus on this, what I get is that China is behaving oddly about their airspace. They are being very restrictive as to who gets into and who doesn’t. I also get that this flight was forced south of the planned route in air. Shortly after it was forced south is when the electrical disturbance began. I am not getting anything specific with passengers or the pilot.

      Q. Could the crash be because of a cometary explosion ( similar to Russia last year)? The air France was also kind of a mystery over the Atlantic ? That would explain why the crew is taken by surprise .
      A. I see this as some electrical / magnetic situation. I can’t visualize an explosion at this time.

      And that is all I have for now. It is 6:38 AM. (No audio at this time).
      As a side note, if anyone has further questions on this topic, just leave a comment and I will monitor them. I’m sure there are a lot of unanswered items out there. Thanks.”

      The strange phone calls and reports of possible anomalies on the radar might support this…

    • SGde3a

      Two people on fake passports. Plane went down/turned off radio signal. Oil slick seen over the water. Chinese spending a lot of man/woman power to look for the wreckage including deep sea divers.

    • StanOnsted

      Just leaves us speechless

    • CrowPie

      My concern is that a plane could be “hacked” from a false “ground control” on the ground. A small and make-shift landing strip could be any old field any where. Transponders would be the first thing disabled in a situation like this…..and cell phones disabled once on the ground. The pilot may not have an over-ride option……if it was killed by maintenance before hand.

    • Anonymous

      I think that those dastardly lizard aliens shot that plane down with their particle beam weapon that they used on the twin towers and now they are munching the passengers at their buffet located in Dulce, New Mexico. It looks like the buffet at Golden Corral, and alien seniors get a discount after 5!
