What a bizarre (and sad) story.

I'm surprised that in this day and age we don't have the technology to track the location of an airplane at all times. I guess we don't have satellite coverage over open waters, etc but you would think they'd have developed some sort of GPS so that planes can't disappear.

I think at this point, they just discovered that the French Woman's distress call has been playing in a loop for the last 15 years.

It is either foul play or an accident.

both are causes for serious concern.

In the last 20 or so years we have had a few planes go down unexplained. With enough parts collected and analyzed, a most likely cause can be presented. I don't think much of this plane will ever be collected.

This occurrence is really, really strange - nonetheless unfortunate. Reminds me of Air France Flight #447, but in this case the aircraft is nowhere to be found.

As to what really happened, with all these claims of passports stolen and 'suspicious' identities, I guess we can only speculate. I'm quite surprised they have not found any trace or piece of the aircraft at all. We'll see if this develops any further.

Really strange that they're searching over in the Malacca Straight.

i can't stop reading about this. i worry about myself sometimes.

morbidity aside, it's always a good geography lesson. i learned a lot about Fernando de Noronha after Air France 447.

I can't stop reading about it either. There's such a strange mix of potential scenarios.

The announcements from the Malaysian authorities of late have been veering from the baffling to the bizarre, and if I knew somebody on the flight I'd probably find them rather distressing or offensive (certainly it seems some of the families are becoming rather angry!). It's as if in the absence of any concrete information, they feel they must say something, anything to placate the feverish public interest, so they blurt out the first thing to come into their heads. The suggestion that the plane was downed by somebody wanting to claim a life insurance policy belongs to outlandish speculation the comments section of a tabloid news website, not an official spokesperson, and mentioning that Italian soccer player who looked nothing like either of the men on fake passports was just all-round strange.

All I saw about that was that it was one of the threads they were perusing in trying to figure out just what the hell was going on. Never did I actually hear that they thought that was what was going on.

I saw something that had a spokesman basically breaking it down to say it was either:

a) terrorism

b) (I actually forgot what the second thing was; I don't think it was something obvious, like "mechanical failure")

c) a "psychological problem" among the crew or passengers; or

d) a "personal problem" among the crew or passengers.

I can see how they'd land at c (i.e., someone was mentally unstable), but with d, I'm stymied.

I saw the same list, we must have read the same article. I think the last one was the one that was basically someone that might have been trying to commit insurance fraud.
