    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

    I did a search for this and couldn't find a thread for it. This is the airplane that disappeared over the Indian Ocean a few years ago with 239 people on board. They are suggesting that it may have been a deliberate crash. Interesting read. There's a video too. I haven't watched it yet because I'm about to get ready for work but I will be watching tonight.

    I could have sworn there was a thread about this already.

    It was discussed in the generic "Aviation" thread (which I never liked for the very reason that it was hard to find discussion of a specific incident when you wanted to).

    You have to go back a few pages to find posts from 2014, but they are there...

    There definitely was another thread, it was called "Missing Malaysian plane MH370". It was under "Everything Else".

    They will NEVER know definitively what happened to that plane. This happened 4 years ago. They weren't designed to survive salinated water in some of the deepest water in the world for 4+ years. In the case of the "El Faro", a container ship that sank off the Bahamas in 2015, the VDR (voyage data recorder) was found 18 months later in 35,000' of salt water (the Caribbean Sea). The tapes yielded quality deemed "very poor", and that was after being in the water for 18 months, never mind four years. If MH370's CVR and Flight Data Recorder (I swear I'm going to have it out with autocorrect one day!) are ever found, they aren't going to provide any useful data. They had to extract info from "El Faro's" VDR using extraordinary measures, and most of the time they had no idea what anyone was saying. They got info only from conjecture. (Turned out that Hurricane Joaquin became a Cat IV hurricane faster than anyone expected, and the Captain was using maps dated from 12 hours before. Oops. 33 people perished when the old, dilapidated ship went down)

    As far as MH370 goes, unless the plane and recorders are found with usable data, we won't know what happened to the plane. News media, particularly the Daily Mail (ugh), will drag out theories and pose them as truth, sometimes 3 or 4 times claiming new information. I haven't seen the CBS report but probably more of the same.

    MH370 WILL go down as aviation's greatest unsolved mystery.

    It appears it be absolutely gone. Like MH370 itself! We'll be like searching the mirror sites on the Interwebs.

    And thank you for not whapping my hands with a virtual ruler for threatening violence... to autocorrect! I'll take it to FB.

    Stand-up bit on this missing flight, by comedian Kathleen Madigan. Worth checking out this whole show, or her previous shows’ bits about Dubya, West Virginia, and the Loch Ness Monster.
