MH370 Reflects Our Defence Alertness?

If an “unidentified” plane had been picked up flouting prescribed procedures or with switched-off transponders or not “squawking” IFF (identification, friend or foe) codes, a series of “air defence measures” would have kicked in – including the scrambling of fighters – to “detect, identify, intercept and destroy” the intruder, an Indian newspaper reported.

The paper also reported that India dismiss the possibility that MAS jet could have flown over her airspace. Indian official said that if a jetliner were to cross the Indian mainland, their primary radars (which bounce radio signals off targets) would have picked it up despite its transponders being switched off (secondary radars beam signals that request information from a plane’s transponders),” said a top Indian Air Force (IAF) officer. -SOURCE

On the morning MH370 went missing, defence radar detected a flying object crossing the northern part of peninsular Malaysia and it was assumed as non hostile, therefore no action were taken to checkout. The assumption it was a commercial flight. After a few days only it was confirmed, through studying of the recording that it might be MH370.

Now, what can we learn from this incident? 

1. Is the route a normal route for commercial airline?  If we check Flightradar24 the route taken by the suspected to be MH370 is not a normal aircraft route. That should put the radar operator on alert and take necessary actions.
2. Why the radar operator think it is a commercial airline since it detected a flying object? A Malaysian military radar showed trace of flight MH370 turning back before it vanished
3. As a layman, I am not sure what kind of detected signal on the radar that can be considered non hostile.
4. If the radar operator alert the defense system during that particular moment and send out reconnaissance jets, maybe the search for MH370 will not drag until day 8 and put Malaysia to shame day by day.

Does that show how weak our air defence is?

Siapa Nak Main Game Bomoh?

Memang cepat pembanguna aplikasi mobile menangguk semasa isu bomoh sedang hangat diperkatakan bukan sahaja di Malaysia, malah seluruh dunia.

Bagi pembangun aplikasi mobile mereka mengambil kesempatan ini untuk membangunkan permainan berasaskan bomoh tersebut. Ianya memang mudah kerana semplate sudah disediakan. Apa yang perlu buat ialah muatnaik imej-imej dan ikon yang sesuai dan kemudian ia sudah boleh dilacarkan. Semasa membuat tinjauaan pada Google Play, saya terkejut juga kerana bukan satu sahaja permainan Bomoh tetapi sekurang-kurangnya 15 aplikasi yang menggunakan perkataan Bomoh. Daripada senarai itu 10 adalah berkaitan dengan peristiwa MH370.

Berikut ialah pencarian daripada Google Play melalui PC

Saya ada buat screen capture dalam telefon pintar dan lihat sebarai permainan Bomoh termasuklah yang sedang hangat diperkatakan Bomoh hendak tampar YB Khairy Jamaluddin macam buaya.
