How likely is mid air collision?!? I mean the ac was supposed to be close to Vietnam. Anyone know anything about Vietnam ATC?

The best possible outcome at this point is that the airplane ditched and that at least some survivors are floating around on rafts.

Regarding the terrorism aspect ... it seems unlikely that Uyghurs would have targeted a MH aircraft, as Malaysia is an Islamic state. One of the Chinese airlines would have been a more likely target.

Current information indicates that the incident occurred while the airplane was at FL350. There have been no reports of other airliners or of military aircraft in the area having problems.

Not very. If it were with another plane, we'd know about it because either that plane would have survived to tell the tale, or we'd be talking about two missing planes in the same area. If it were with a bird (which is incredibly unlikely that that altitude, but there are birds that have been known to fly that high), it wouldn't have been enough to take down the airplane.

MH370 code-shared with China Southern CZ448, who provided most of the passengers. Beijing Airport is a very sad place at the moment. Must be hell for those waiting there.

Normally heading out of KL on that route you are kept low as the outbound track crosses the busy Singapore inbound routes and the Bangkok Singapore route. You go from KL control to a Singapore radar on VHF, them as you get further out transfer to Singapore on datalink. Then transfer to Vietnam on datalink, often after transfer from Singapore to Vietnam you are initially out of VHF range.

They should have a good idea of the location.

Unless it was a military plane, still unlikely but the South China sea has a lot of activity and competing claims at the moment.

As to a mid-air collision, especially at 35,000 ft would also mean a second aircraft that is lost or has come up at some airport (ie: the bizjet that clipped a GOL airliner, the bizjet landed at a military airport, the Gol broke up and all lost on the Gol one). As far as we know now, that hasn't happened. Of course one can make all kinds of extreme speculation like as to a wayward Missile hit is (one theory on TWA 800's loss).

If they had the equipment to. That sort of thing isn't standard - it's a service that the airline has the option to set up and pay for.

However, it should be pointed out that ACARS is only useful if you can't find the FDR, as the FDR provides far more data to investigators. Once the FDR is recovered (which shouldn't be nearly as hard as AF447's was, as it's either on land or in water that isn't that deep), it'll give investigators plenty of information to work with.

By "signal" they most likely mean ELT. The ELT does not activate unless a crash is detected or the pilot's manually enable it. That's not very good news but at least they have something to go on when it comes to locating the plane.

In the US, I don't think commercial airliners don't need ELT's. I am a student at an aviation university in the US and that was covered in my Aviation Regulations class. This may not be true elsewhere in the world though. They may be mentioning the pingers on the black boxes though, if it crashed in water.

Thanks Mir, it makes sense and hopefully there is some news very soon. It could be anything with such few details and information.

Thats not good news then, was hoping the aircraft landed in some forgotten airfield or something, but one could only hope and pray.

From the link below, there are claims as to an incident with this particular aircraft in August '12

http://www.smh.com.au/world/seven-au...e-goes-missing-20140308-hvgnx.html

Quote:
The missing plane is believed to have been involved in a crash in August, 2012, when it damaged the tail of a China Eastern Airlines plane at Shanghai Pudong Airport, according to unconfirmed reports.
In the incident, the tip of the wing of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 broke off.

Odd that they got no messages at all. Hoping for the best but at this point any positive outcome is such a small chance right now. Hope they can find the presume wreckage ASAP. US News outlets have not said much recently. Currently have CCTV on which I would imagine will spend most of the time on the MH 370. They are also reporting Vietnam officials have detected an ELT signal 120nm off the coast. Soon it will be time to figure out what happened, especially considering it is a 777. Which that is now being refuted. Interesting enough someone on CCTV in the Beijing airport just said they still have reports that the plane may have landed at another airport which I highly doubt is possible after this amount of time has passed.

CCTV just said the pilot was very senior with over 18,000hrs. MH does have a good safety record also.

I have a strong suspicion that this is an act of terrorist.
Remember what just happened at Kunming
Malaysia had few enemies but remember there are 153 tourists on board and it looks like a good target for making a statement to China.

B777 or modern airplanes have sophisticated safety equipment. Considering what was known, two hours after took off, my horrible suspicion could be a very plausible.

I'm sure that will get a lot of press, but I don't believe it to be significant. Airplanes get damaged all the time, and they're able to be repaired to an airworthy state. The fact that this one was involved in a ground collision just means it was involved in a ground collision and was repaired. Nothing more can be drawn from that at this point.

Guess we will wait to see what the details are. If the plane's transmitter has been detected, do we know if it was on the surface or whether they already reached the site?

It took seven years after botched repair to the aft bulkhead to bring down JAL 123 in 1985.We don't know what the condition of the MH777 is right now, but if it is indeed a hull loss I'm sure the A/C maintenance records will be scrutinized carefully.

This would have been checked pre- and post-repair. Besides, aircraft components are designed and built not to fail due to failure of another part. Chain reactions are frowned upon.

The aircraft had major damage history. Might be a good place to start a investigation.

Pic of the damage, doesn't look toooo bad. http://cdn.feeyo.com/pic/20120810/201208100951017177.jpg

This kind of data loss occurs often with international flights on FlightAware and therefore it cannot be considered to be a reliable source in this case.

That doesn't look like 2 hours worth of flying. An earlier link to an avherald note said that communication was lost over the Gulf of Thailand.

FWIW the NY Times most emailed news report concerns the apparently politically motivated criminal conviction of the Malaysian government most threatening opponent. Apparently there are some serious political forces at play in Malaysia.
