MH370 Day 7- Hope Still Alive

ALL INFORMATION ON THIS POST IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION FROM SAR PRESS CONFERENCE

Why I put up the above notice is that whatever I share on this blog is based on what I read on the internet. Since the missing of MH370 is becoming more mysterious by day, more and more theories pop up and most from individual who wants to be anonymity maybe because they might not be officially with the investigation team.

I am sharing this pieces of information that I found while surfing the net.

ABC News published an article on 13th March 2013 tittled Malaysia Airliner Communications Shut Down Seperately, Says US Official. 

Two U.S. officials tell ABC News the U.S. believes that the shutdown of two communication systems happened separately on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. One source said this indicates the plane did not come out of the sky because of a catastrophic failure.

The data reporting system, they believe, was shut down at 1:07 a.m. The transponder — which transmits location and altitude — shut down at 1:21 a.m. ABC News aviation consultant John Nance said. More from  Source.

Satellite Bleep deepens unprecedented Malaysian Airlines Mystery 

A US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorised to discuss the situation by name, said the Boeing 777-200 wasn’t transmitting data to the satellite, but was instead sending out a signal to establish contact.

Boeing offers a satellite service that can receive a stream of data during flight on how the aircraft is functioning and relay the information to the plane’s home base. The idea is to provide information before the plane lands on whether maintenance work or repairs are needed.

Malaysia Airlines didn’t subscribe to that service, but the plane still had the capability to connect with the satellite and was automatically sending pings, the official said.

“It’s like when your cellphone is off but it still sends out a little ‘I’m here’ message to the cellphone network,’’ the official said. “That’s how sometimes they can triangulate your position even though you’re not calling because the phone every so often sends out a little bleep. That’s sort of what this thing was doing.’’ More from SOURCE

Two sources said an unidentified aircraft that investigators believe was Flight MH370 was following a route between navigational waypoints – indicating it was being flown by someone with aviation training – when it was last plotted on military radar off the country’s north-west coast.

The last plot on the military radar’s tracking suggested the plane was flying toward India’s Andaman Islands, a chain of isles between the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal, they said.

Waypoints are geographic locations, worked out by calculating longitude and latitude, that help pilots navigate along established air corridors. More from SOURCE

Based on those unverified information there is still hope that MH370 and her passengers will be back with their loved ones. What more there are still no pings from the aircraft blackbox.

Iraq Olympic Committee Kidnapped

This news was posted on Yahoo News on July 15 2006

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Gunmen kidnapped Iraq Olympic committe chief Iraq‘s Olympic committee and more than a dozen employees Saturday after storming a sports conference in Baghdad, police said. The kidnappers wore camouflage Iraqi police uniforms and security guards outside the meeting said they did not interfere because they thought the gunmen were legitimate law enforcement, police said.

Ahmed al-Hijiya, president of the committee, was taken in the assault, which came a day after the coach of Iraq’s national wrestling team was killed by kidnappers, said police Lt. Thaer Mahmoud.

Others taken Saturday included the deputy head of the Olympic committee, Ammar Jabbar al-Saadi; the chairman of the Taekwondo Federation, Jamal Abdul-Karim; and the chief of the Boxing Federation Union, Bashar Mustafa.

Two guards were killed, one while trying to flee the building.

Interior Minister Jawad al-Bolani told reporters that the kidnapping was carried out by “gangs” and not security forces.

There were conflicting reports on the number of people taken but Maj. Gen. Adnan Thabet, commander of the ministry’s special forces, told The Associated Press that al-Hijiya and 20 others were kidnapped.

The Sunni coach of Iraq’s national wrestling team, Mohammed Karim Abid Sahib, was seized with one of his wrestlers Thursday as they left a sports center to buy sweets in the northern neighborhood of Kazimiyah, where the team was preparing for a tournament.

The coach was shot to death while trying to escape later in the day. The wrestler escaped, according to police and wrestling officials.

The team pulled out of the tournament in the United Arab Emirates.

In other violence, Iraqi soldiers and gunmen clashed in Baghdad, leaving at least three people dead and 11 wounded, police said.

Seven people were injured in a mortar attack near Haifa Street in downtown Baghdad, blocks from the Green Zone, which houses U.S. and British embassies and the Iraqi government.

Similar clashes broke out blocks away, injuring four and killing two civilians. U.S. troops sealed off the area after the attacks, said Iraqi Army Maj. Salman Abdul-Wahid.

The area along Haifa Street has seen heavy violence in recent weeks, which prompted Iraqi leaders.

Iraq’s parliament voted Saturday to extend a nearly two-year state of emergency in Baghdad for another 30 days. The violence along Haifa Street prompted the last extension.

President Jalal Talabani called for establishment of a national front to prevent a sectarian civil war.
