According to Twitter, this is the possible radius if it did fly on another 4 hours:



I have no idea how accurate that is or not, just passing on what I see.

According to another person, I'm guessing this is between 4 and 5 hours:

This is the most baffling, fascinating, horrifying story in a long time, at least for me.

Now Malaysia admits to ignoring radar blips on Saturday.

Just crazy. Word has it that Jack and Locke just discovered a cave with fresh water and two skeletons that Jack referred to as "our own Adam and Eve".

MH370: Malaysia dismisses 'inaccurate' reports about last signals – live updates | World news | theguardian.com

Quote:
Signal reports are 'inaccurate'
Hussein opened the press conference by denying reports that the missing plane sent out engine data after it disappeared from contact with air traffic control. He said:

I would like to refer to news reports suggesting that the aircraft may have been flying for some time after the last contact. Those reports are inaccurate. The last transmission from the aircraft was at 01.07, which indicated everything was normal. Rolls-Royce and Boeing teams are here in Kuala Lumpur and have worked with MAS and the investigation teams since Sunday. This issue has never been raised … Since today’s media reports MAS has asked Rolls-Royce and Boeing specifically about the data. As far as Rolls-Royce and Boeing are concerned those reports are inaccurate.

I posted about that a little while ago and while I'd be relieved to hear that's not true, I can't say I'm taking much of anything coming out of Malaysia for much more than a grain of salt at this point.

I've never watched the Reddit folks search these maps for stuff before...it's fascinating.

the plot thickens...

from the Guardian just now:

Quote:
Rolls-Royce is refusing to comment on claims made by the Malaysian authorities on the last signal sent by the missing plane.

During today’s press conference Malaysia’s acting transport minister

Hishammuddin Hussein dismissed a report in the Wall Street Journal claiming that the signals could have sent out by the plane hours after it lost contact with air traffic control. He also claimed both the makers of the missing plane, Boeing, and the makers of its engines, Rolls-Royce, backed this view.

He said: “Since today’s media reports MAS [Malaysia Airlines] has asked Rolls-Royce and Boeing specifically about the data. As far as Rolls-Royce and Boeing are concerned those reports are inaccurate.”

But when our transport correspondent Gwyn Topham asked Rolls-Royce to confirm this, it declined.

Earlier, the company said little more to the Wall Street Journal. It quotes and an unnamed executive as saying: “The disappearance is officially now an accident and all information about this is strictly handled by investigators.”

Boeing has also issued no comment on the claim.

Anyone else get the feeling that this is starting more and more to look/sound like a movie? It's just so damn surreal that a gigantic airplane could just disappear like that.

If the reports of the Malaysian military ignoring radar blips from an unidentified aircraft are correct, then the theory that the plane flew on for several hours after last contact sounds more and more likely. Particularly since the unidentified plane was traveling west towards the Indian Ocean.

Also, Malaysian authorities need to get their shit together.

I had a buddy in college from Malaysia, and, man, that's a weird country from how he described it. It does not surprise me that the government isn't exactly up to this task.

Interesting possible scenario in this article about a decompression in the cabin, killing the pilots, but the plane continued on autopilot until it ran out of fuel and crashed.

Whoa, this story gets more weirder and scarier each day. I just hate to think what the passengers were going through during this. Whether it was an hour or several hours, I just can't...

Malaysia Airlines missing plane: MH370 'vanished in thin air', says Malaysia | smh.com.au
Like what happened to Payne Stewart. Awful.

But would it explain the transponder being turned off?
