And, just to clarify, do you still entertain the idea that MH370 was vaporized by some kind of nuclear device / lazer that would leave no trace of the aircraft behind when you say "shot down"???
You put me in a bit of a spot there ...
If I do reply to your question, I’ll be ridiculed and ostracised.
If I don’t reply, the same might still happen.
I have also learned, by first-hand experience, that things are brought up ages later and are then quoted or mentioned completely out of context.
With that in mind and hoping that this will now clear it up once and for all, I will reply to your triple question mark.
Let’s first define ‘shot down’. If that is meant to be by conventional means, then the answer is ‘highly unlikely’; in other words, no, it wasn’t. As it has been pointed out here many times, there would have been tell-tale debris and none, absolutely none was found.
If you are asking me whether the aircraft was shot down, as in ‘vaporising’, then the answer is not nearly so clear or straight forward. There could be a very high wall of secrecy where we have no way of knowing what new kind of weaponry might be behind it. Is it possible? Maybe yes, maybe no; I wouldn’t know because, like the rest of the public, I would have no real information on which to even form a believe.
But, ages ago I mentioned another form of shoot-down and, I feel, in that one-off case it was a reasonable contribution for the specific discussion at that time. Directed energy weapons (DEW) ....
For a site that seems to be reasonable, and well in front on Google anyway, there is a URL below.
Although, DEW's always seems to imply laser weapons; maybe they can use different forms of energy now.
And this is where it gets difficult to clearly discuss these things on A.net.
On the one hand, as I said, I don’t want to be ridiculed or ostracised ...
On the other hand, I want to discuss clearly what I actually mean.
The difficulty is, here on A.net there are generally only the professionals from the aviation industry or people who are seriously interested in that field. None of those are even inclined to deal with that type of fairy-tale topic, as they see it, not even consider it; I understand that. It smacks too much of conspiracy theories and that, as a rule, is anathema.
I’ll give it a go anyway ....
The result from a DEW may be dustification, not vaporisation.
I believe the word dustification was invented in response to what we have seen with 9/11.
Is it possible that an aircraft can be shot down and all that’s left is simply a cloud of dust?
At the time when I made the comments, I read an article somewhere, in which it was discussed that MH370 was shot down as a display of very-high-tech weaponry to a high-end military conference.
Could that have been some form of a DEW?
(Please don’t shoot me the messenger!)
I thought about this and came to the conclusion that, ultimately ...
a) I wouldn’t know because I couldn’t possibly know this; but ...
b) considering the general public is not in the ‘need-to know-circles’, in some far-fetched way it might be possible.
c) If that is what did happen, then it would have to leave virtually no debris. Dustification would do that.
d) And there was the sighting from the bloke on the oil rig.
However far-fetched even the thought might be, there were at least some indicators for consideration.
Would such weapons exist? I wouldn’t have the faintest idea!
Was such a weapon used in this case? I seem to remember that there was talk, in the early threads, of aerial manoeuvres (jet fighters) in the general area by various air forces.
From what I remember, those aerial manoeuvres were mentioned here but not resolved.
And, yes, 777Jet, if by a chance of 0.000001% something like this did happen, then it certainly would have meant that the satellite data was spoofed – for starters.
Also look up Wikipedia on the topic.
