    A real clue or just another false alarm?

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz2wNu3gWDA

    A satellite image appears to show the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 in the skies above a jungle.

    The image is taken from Tomnod, the map search website currently being used by hundreds of thousands of people in an attempt to search for missing passenger plane, and was posted on Reddit on Sunday.

    The authenticity of the photo has not yet been verified and the region depicted in the photo is as yet unknown. Intriguingly, the plane appears to have been painted white.





    The image was found by an university student in Taiwan, according to Taiwan's China Times.

    The image has surfaced at the same time as the news that Malaysian villagers claim to have seen the missing Malaysian Airlines jet flying over the north east of the country at around the time the aircraft is thought to have made a 'U-turn'.

    No, they announced that that the pilot programmed the course change 12 minutes before the "all is well, good night". They also said it is common for pilots to do this as a precaution. That way, if something goes wrong they can change course to the closest airport quickly and easily. It fits the fire theory perfectly.

    I think the point is if the cockpit is on fire from take off, then why would the pilot say all is good?

    I'm not buying the Wired smoke theory, either. Without going into details regarding stretches of the imagination in the article, I'm pretty sure someone in the cockpit would notice the stench of acrid burning rubber before key systems started failing.

    Also, there are so many systems on different electrical busses that it's highly improbable that they all failed at once, before a radio call could be made and an emergency descent commenced.

    While it's true that Aviate, Navigate, and Communicate are prioritized in that order, It's possible to do all three at once. Especially if you're on fire, you're going to start an immediate emergency descent. If the crew was incapacitated during the course of that descent, the plane would have hit the ground. Like Value Jet.

    Pilot didn't know until after? Then set the plane to follow the new route?

    completely intact landing or crashing in the jungle. doesn't seem likely. plus it's the daily mail. they probably paid some intern to make that image up.

    For some reason (possibly dyslexia) the plane over the jungle looks upside down.

    Yeah, but read again. He is implying that somehow God is in control of the plane, and, if the heathens aboard recognize the error of their ways, and turn to Christ, the plane still has a chance to land safely. Let us all pray for that.

    This could be interesting.

    I'll keep checking this thread periodically.

    That's a 737.

    I boiled my thermometer, and sure enough, this spot, which purported to be two thousand feet higher than the locality of the hotel, turned out to be nine thousand feet LOWER. Thus the fact was clearly demonstrated that, ABOVE A CERTAIN POINT, THE HIGHER A POINT SEEMS TO BE, THE LOWER IT ACTUALLY IS. Our ascent itself was a great achievement, but this contribution to science was an inconceivably greater matter.

    Very nice of the pilots to give the trees a break when crash landing into the dense jungle too.
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    maybe it had giant parachutes and after it ran out of fuel gently swayed back and forth to earth like a shitty snowboarder on a blue run

    What horseshit. They could say "it appears to show an airliner in the skies above the jungle" but it certainly doesn't appear to show flight MH370.

    Indeed, either they're saying the photo was taken from above...or they're saying the plane was in the sky. Either way it doesn't seem like it's MH370 as some have said it's a 737 and then there's this:

    It is unclear whether the above Tomnod image even shows a Malaysia Airlines plane. Commentators have suggested the coloured ring towards the tail seems more like the paint scheme of Qantas than Malaysian Airlines.
