An Australian Prime Minister is not asked to make a Parliamentary statement on two pieces of flotsam in the Southern Ocean unless further critical information is being purposefully withheld from incompetent Malaysian officials.
Given currents and prevailing winds, the material sighted is unlikely to be a container, not in that part of the world. It appears some people know much more than media was told.
If the bold assumption can be made that the sighted wreckage is that of the Boeing 777, then there is no better point on the planet to ensure black boxes are not recovered for years, if ever, and that clears insurance claims to be paid.
The black boxes will be in 4 kilometres’ deep treacherous waters in one of the most inaccessibly remote points imaginable.
The known actions of the crew appeared deliberate and calmly intentional.
The wreckage site correlates with the point the aircraft would have suffered fuel exhaustion. And that point was concentrated on by search crews for reasons other than what we have been told.
Could evidence have been found that indicates suicide? It has happened before involving an Egyptian crew and evidence was suppressed and denied by the airline to avoid bankruptcy.
The consensus among search crews is that no wreckage will be found. So far they have sighted the bridge of an old fishing boat and large pods of dolphins.
The wreckage may not be that of the lost aircraft and it may never be found, after all what better place is there to ensure it isn’t.
An international contributor has informed pickeringpost.com of his assessment:
“A scenario for those who can't make anything of the gibberish coming out of Malaysia, but remain interested:
“I have been convinced for some time that this was pilot or co-pilot suicide.
Apparently the ACARS system was turned off and the flight-path west over the peninsular was programmed in immediately before the co-pilot said, “All right, good night” to the ATCs.
“He or the captain then switched off the aircraft’s transponder.
“I believe those targeting the search also believe this 'accident' was a suicide.
“If a pilot wants to commit suicide and still allow his family to collect insurance, he has to try to make sure the wreckage isn't found.
"To do that he needs to fly the plane in a manner that would hide it from, or confuse, military and civilian radar, then put it somewhere very hard to find. He did exactly that.
“The problem is pilot suicide might make some passengers suspect that something is very wrong.
“Put on an oxygen mask and slowly decompress the plane.
"Assuming he can prevent the deployment of passenger oxygen masks, he then climbs to 45,000 ft (it is reported he did that) to ensure everyone except himself is either comatose or dead.
"Then manoeuvre the plane until it is pointing to the most desolate part of the southern Indian Ocean, set the autopilot, take his oxygen mask off, and go to sleep.
"If my theory is correct he has come unstuck because he didn't realise the plane was still trying to ‘handshake’ with an InMarSat satellite over the Indian Ocean, which gave the searchers the look-down angle to draw that big red circle.
"They intersected that circle with where they thought the aircraft would have run out of fuel and promptly targeted DigitalGlobe mapping satellites and AGIO to go have a look.
"The series of events doesn't imply a catastrophic malfunction and if the aircraft was flown to the southern Indian Ocean, a hijacking doesn't make sense.
"I hope I'm wrong and it has landed safely somewhere, but I don't think so."
[The flaw in the theory is that both pilots and a flight engineer would all need to agree to a suicide pact at the same time.]
