A Flaperon is is a type of aircraft control surface that combines aspects of both flaps and ailerons. In addition to controlling the roll or bank of an aircraft, as do conventional ailerons, both flaperons can be lowered together to function similarly to a dedicated set of flaps. Both ailerons could also be raised, which would give spoilerons. – Wikipedia

‘Weird thing on the shore’: The 6ft-long wing flap, which experts believe comes from a Boeing 777 like the Malaysian Airlines plane, was half covered in sand and had barnacles encrusted on its edges when it was found by Mr Begue and his team of beach cleaners

What does “BB670” mean?

The code will prove vital in identifying the aircraft and could help to verify the source of the debris within 24 hours. The code is believed to be a tag, or part of a tag, placed by manufacturers on parts of an aircraft to help identify it. The code could be a part number or serial number or bar code. – Telegraph

After news of the Flaperon found, another news appeared about a damaged suitcase also found.

However it has still to be determined whetner the debris found came from the ill-fated MH370 or other aircraft.

Even when MH 370 wreckages had been founf it is still far from answering why the aircraft went mysteriously missing.

Read the recall on the MH370 mysterious missing.

Dailymail UK also republished the theories of the missing MH370 HERE.

MH370 – Where Is It Really?

After nearly two months missing, now there are new claims that the wreckage of MH370 if any, is not in the South Indian Ocean where the search had been going on since shifting from Gulf of Thailand after Inmarsat informed that they tracked the ill fated aircraft to the the search area.  Surface and underwater search did not find any clue of the missing MH370 but just garbage from some other sources.

The latest claim now is that an Australian Company have found the possibility of MH370 submerged in the Bay of Bengal. Read HERE. This claim might coincide with the claim of a women travelling home from Umrah claim that she saw the plane in the Bay of Bengal and dismissed by the Acting Minister of Transport. The Australian Company meanwhile said that they did their own search in the Bay of Bengal since 10th March while the women claimed she saw it on 8th March, the day MH370 went missing.

The claim does not end there. Another pilot claim that he saw the image of the wreckage in the Gulf of Thailand.

So are we getting confused? Which claim is right and true.

 

MH370 Days Counting

MH370confidenceIt is coming to 2 month since MH370 went missing and to date there is still no concrete sign that the aircraft ended in the South Indian Ocean. Surface search and underwater search still did not find any clue in any form. Even the few pings detected by the SAR team did not turn out to be from the ill-fated aircraft. The best of the worlds latest technology even fail to give us answers. And now Malaysia and MAS had made into the record book.

While news about the misisng MH370 is fading by day, the SAR team is still determined to unearth where the wreckage (if there is) and what really happens. Now, the public’s interest to follow the latest development is getting cold by day unlike during the earlier days. Likewise perceptions on how Putrajaya handles the tragedy has is also being questioned.

Merdeka Center had conducted a survey to find out how the public sees. The result was 45% were not confident in the government handling and 18% not confident at all.

Merdeka Center director Ibrahim Suffian said while Putrajaya might be doing its best to handle the tragedy, the numerous conspiracy theories as well as the slow release of information from the authorities had contributed to the negative perception.

“This is a media-driven issue and there is no way the public will know anything beyond what’s reported by the media and in social media. Read the Full Article HERE

Whatever the public’s perception towards Putrajaya, we should still pray for the fate of MH370. Lets hope miracle happens and MH370 did not end in the South Indian Ocean because there is no tell tale sign that it ended there besides the PM announcement. All search resulted null.

 

MAS Aftermath MH370 Tragedy – View From A Captain

MH370 unearth many professionals and talents which nobody knew before. We see gems within out society that had only been polished  when they are invited to speak on the educational side of the missing MH370. Among the gems uncovered is retired MAS Captain Datuk Nik ahmad Huzlan who had served MAS for 30 years. Since his first appearance on Astro Awani, he had been the centre of reliable information about aircraft especially the missing Boeing 777.  His explanation which is simple and easily understandable by non aviation masses.

Kapten-Nik-Ahmad-Huzlan-Nik-Hussain

Ever since i knew his Facebook profile, I requested to be added as a friend and now been following his unofficial statements and views about aviation and specifically the MH370 tragedy.

Today he published a lengthy post on his wall; view from someone who has that self of belonging feeling of his “farm” that feed him and his family for 30 years before retirement. I copy and paste his love and feeling about the future of our national carrier that is beleeding more than RM 3 million a day. I repeat RM 3 million a day, NOT a month or year.

This is his post copied from HERE. Go to the posting to read responses from others.

What will happen to this beloved Airline of ours? Already bleeding to the tune of more than RM3 million a day, it has also shrunk to 5/8th its original size. This month MAS loses direct connectivity to the US where years ago it was serving both coasts, landing at Los Angeles and New York. MAS used to be a Top airline, winning numerous accolades with a sparkling safety record, which went a long way in covering up its Management deficiencies that has been present for many years.
The MH370 Event will definitely expose these deficiencies as the Airline and its Operating Practices comes under a microscope.

How much more pain can this beleaguered Airline bear? While time may heal MAS’ reputation, its main reason for existence, ie, as a profitable Business Entity, is vague and unclear. It will continue to lose money for sure.

I served MAS for 30 years. In 1996 I became Chief Pilot Narrow Body Operations and watched with horror as i saw the smart ones being ignored while the mediocre corporate politicians rule the roost.

During my stint in Management I served under 6 CEOs. All came in with their select team, bringing high hopes, but all eventually faltered as the seasoned corporate politicians edged their way into the meeting rooms and left the CEO Teams clueless. The CEOs and their Dream Teams left after 3 years. The seasoned corporate politicians are still around.

MAS is a story of square pegs in round holes. Its main problem is not the business nor costs. Its about Talent Management. Its about having good Human Resource processes to ensure the qualified does the job they are not just merely good at, but excellent and passionate about doing the task at hand. I observed many Senior MAS staff engaging in processes that ensures job protection, even to the detriment of MAS. These people have to go as they are dragging the company down. They thrive on cronyism. They surround themselves with average people who will not threaten their position. They prefer compliance rather than intellect. They avoid confronting conflict, preferring the path of backhanded maneuvering to solve it their own way.
They need to go.

MAS more than ever needs people with the talent of doing good business, not just ability of running a business. They must be hungry, and understand that the process of a successful sale is serving the customer from cradle to grave AND collecting the proceeds of that sale. The Operations side needs thinkers, not procedural pen pushers, happy to just fulfil what is required of them in a day, but not hungry to improve currently tried and tested process.

There is so much talent inside MAS, but most in the wrong place. Or unrecognised.

On Talent, MAS must keep the Best and Fix the Rest. Average is just not good enough now. Not after losing two planes in six months while bleeding RM3million a day.

Its current path is leading it to destruction. It needs to address its long standing problem, which, even before MH370, seems insurmountable. Excellent Management is required with MH370 hanging over its head.

NOTE: The Above is a Watered down version. There is a Dark Side to MAS that not many knows.

Bloggers view: Is it because MAS is a GLC that it face such a predicament. What if Airasia too is another GLC?

[10.30PM] – The Last Day of Malaysia Airline Passengers With Stolen Passports

By RACHEL KATZ and COLLEEN CURRY | Good Morning America

A man claiming to be the friend of two Iranians who used fake passports to board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight told ABC News that the men stayed at his home the night before the flight vanished.

Mohammad Mallaeibeasir told ABC News that he is an 18-year-old student living in Malaysia who went to high school with one of the men who is believed to have used a fake passport to board the missing flight. He said the other man was a friend of the friend’s, and the pair stayed at Mallaeibeasir’s the night before the flight took off.

Mallaeibeasir identified the men as Pouria Nour Mohammadi and Reza Devalar, both around age 18 or 19 and both from Iran. He said he went to high school with Pouria, but had not seen him for a couple of years.
They stayed with Mallaeibeasir and his roommate Friday night, and then Mallaeibeasir drove them to the airport, where they used stolen Italian and Austrian passports to board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 on Saturday morning, he said.

The plane lost contact with air control and radar approximately an hour into its flight and disappeared without a trace. A massive search operation is under way for any sign of the plane in the waters between Malaysia and Vietnam.

Mallaeibeasir said he did not know the men were using fake passports until the news stories broke and Pouria’s mother called him and told him about it. Mallaeibeasir says he then called Malaysia Airlines and told them all of the information he knew.

Today Malaysian Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar identified one of the two men with stolen passports as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 19, and said he was likely trying to enter Germany to seek asylum. His mother contacted authorities after he didn’t arrive in Frankfurt.

Interpol later identified the other man as Delavar Syed Mohammad Reza, 29.

Law enforcement sources told ABC news today that the men’s tickets were purchased by an Iranian man known as “Mr. Ali.”

Mallaeibeasir said that when Pouria and Reza were staying at his house, he heard them briefly talking to an “Ali” on the phone.

“The last night when they were in my home they were talking on the phone for a long time. They were talking in Persian, in their room, and I heard them say ‘OK Ali’ like that in Persian. I didn’t understand because it was like, five seconds. I went into the room to take water from my fridge and I came out and they said, ‘Be quiet, we’re talking.'”

Besides the hushed phone conversations, Mallaeibeasir said that the pair just hung out with him and his housemate and watched movies. Then Mallaeibeasir drove them to the airport.

“They stayed here only the last night before the flight. They were supposed to stay in Malaysia for three days but I think they stayed for one week,” Mallaebeasir said. “They were with me because I had a car and I told them I will take you to the airport. They came to my house.”

Mallaeibeasir and Pouria went to high school together in Tehran two years ago, before Mallaebeasir moved to Malaysia to study business information technology. He said he did not know Reza until the two arrived at his home for a quick night’s stay.

Mallaeibeasir said he did not ask Pouria or Reza why they were in Malaysia. Pouria said he was heading to Germany or Copenhagen after Malaysia in order to visit his mother because they were having family problems, Mallaeibeasir said.

The two men traveled lightly, Mallaebeasier said. Pouria had a mountain climbing-type backpack and a laptop, while Reza carried a suitcase and a laptop, he said.

After he dropped them at the airport, Mallaebeasier called the men on their cell phones. Pouria answered but hung up quickly, and Mallaebeasier ended up talking to Reza for about three minutes, he said.
