I'm gonna be flying alot within the next month so incidents like this are scary to hear about but also a bit reassuring because I know it only happens once a year or so. Sorry I know that's selfish and morbid but it's my first thought.

 

This. I fly pretty often, both personally and on business, and I was actually getting onto a plane from Toronto to Vancouver just as this news broke. Even though I knew the route was extremely safe and I was going to be fine, it still kinda shocked and scared me a bit. It's definitely not a piece of news that you want to hear, especially since I rarely fly that route.

 

 

But this is super strange now. Like it's been 3-4 days now and how the hell have we not found a trace of this plane? Even Air France, which landed in the middle of the ocean was found about a day or two into the operation. A plane this size honestly can't just disappear.

I hope its not another case of stupid pilots like Air France jet in the Atlantic ocean.

Pretty much pilots get the plane into a stall after hitting turbulence and instead of putting the nose down they rev the engines and try to pull up causing it to literally fall out of the air.

Its really maddening because even a person who has an hour of flight time can prevent such a disaster. There have been quite a few like the Buffalo one.


However to be fair plane crashes are more rare these days then before.


You obviously didn't read the full report on the accident. Ice blocked the pitot tubes leading to inconsistent speeds being given and the switch from auto pilot to alternate law. If that hadn't happened there would be no accident. They also weren't trained to deal with anything close to that situation as well. So while the pilots do deserve fault it wasn't as if they caused the crash themselves they just didn't know what was happening and didn't do anything to stop the descent. No ice = no crash.

That is like saying there ice on the road but you instead you over steer like a crazy person and then blame the entire accident on the ice.

 

There is no doubt the ice caused a instrument failure but why on earth he pulled the airplane up made no sense in that dramatic manner. He literally caused the plane to stall and the stall warning went on for near a minute..

Even then he could have put the nose down which anyone who has any experience knows is what you do when you stall. However instead he just waited for the pilot. 

 

 

 


There have been cases where something goes wrong and the pilots react.

Mmm. I read the news about the Air France plane disappearing 5 minutes before boarding a trans-Atlantic flight. I made sure to tell everyone else sitting around me about it just so I wouldn't be the only paranoid one :wacko:

 

Come to think of it, this happens pretty often, planes crashing right around the time I'm about to have a flight. There was one over the summer too, but I forget which now.

Some relatives desperately searching for answers in Beijing said they heard a ringtone when dialing the cellphones of some of the missing passengers, making them think the phones were still online.

This whole incident sounds more and more like "Lost" everyday. Soon we will hear theories as to how the plane is stuck in an alternate dimension or something.

Yeah right, of course, armchair pilot.

hindsight is 20/20 bet every pilot who died agrees 

 

people react differently to the unexpected, they have the lives of hundreds of people in their hands 

 

that pilot who landed the plane in the hudson is lauded as a hero but could easily have been blamed to some extent after the fact  

 

maybe the plane was abducted by aliens *mind blown lol*

 

its really 50/50 whether attempts result in lives saved , its starting to get real weird they can't find anything , enlist the darn space station, all that junk in space can't zoom in ?

 

good luck to the search rescuers though finding a needle in a haystack

This is quiet possible getting even more bizarre.  Latest reports are that the plane did an almost 180° turn and went back across Malaysia and in to the Straits of Malacca.

This means it would have to have flown almost directly over one of Malaysia's major Air Force Bases.

hmmm could it be the air force blew the plane up after hijackers wanted to crash it into a public place and they shoot it down now they're pretending not to know what happen ? clearly non-stop is still fresh on my mind

Could explain why the military hasn't found anything where the plane originally lost contact.

 

Though the Strait of Malacca is one of the most trafficated waters in the world and there hasn't been any reports on ships coming across plane wreckage yet...

There's been increasing evidence that the plane was sucked into another dimension.

Langoliers was awesome because basically Pac-Men ate time, and that's why time travel wasn't possible.  :)

"The Langoliers" is one of Stephen King's best stories. The mini-series did not do it justice at all.

 

Back to reality, though... honestly, the ocean is huge. Really frickin' huge. If they were searching in the wrong area (based on the original flight path, not the latest information) it's not surprising they haven't found anything yet.
