RE: Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 70

I just finished reading all the readers' comments in the link posted by NAV30 (reply 120). I think that the rig worker's testimony is something that cannot be ruled out.This was not an anonymous phone call. A reliable witness,he contacted the authorities, gave his name,even his e-mail address.Perhap...

RE: Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 70

About the absence of debris: Supposing it came down in one piece but sank in the shallow sea-bed of the area? Or if it did turn back but crashed in a remote mountainous area of Malaysia, who would have known? But why this cover-up? I even tried to find similarities with the disappearance of Amelia E...

RE: Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 70

Thank you for the link, NAV30...Now that I have read the story again,it seems that everything has started to fall into place.I am one of those few who believe that the two 777 accidents must be connected for some deep reason. Both planes must have been shot down. The only difference being,that we kn...

RE: DL Gives 7yr Old UM To Wrong Person

When I was a gate agent at Olympic Airlines (Athens airport) I frequently had to take UMNRs from the crew and hand them over to parents or relatives.I know first hand how difficult the work of ground staff is,especially ramp agents and us,"ground escorts",in Olympic terminology.It is no fun professi...

RE: Have You Been On An Aircraft That's Gone Down?

On September 13,1985 I flew for the first time to the USA on N93119, the TWA jumbo, from Athens to New York . The plane was lost in July 1996. I used to keep a logbook back then. Of course,one could say that eleven years earlier it was a different airplane...I sat in the back of the cabin and I reme...

RE: Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 70

There is something I still do not understand: If the pilot had wanted to disappear with his aircraft,he could have turned right towards the Pacific with the same effect,couldn't he? Why assume he would have to do all those manoeuvres towards the South Indian Ocean instead?<br><br>[Edited 2014-08-21 ...
