Posted on 03/14/2014 9:03:51 AM PDT by SatinDoll
Military radar evidence suggests the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner was deliberately flown west toward the Indian Oceans Andaman Islands, sources told Reuters on Friday as mounting evidence pointed to a criminal inquiry into Flight MH370.
Two sources told Reuters that an unidentified aircraft believed by investigators to be the missing Boeing 777 - was following a route between navigational way-points, indicating it was being flown by someone with aviation training when it was last plotted on military radar off the country's northwest coast.

It is now, probably, in Pakistan and has been since sundown on Saturday.
Either that or the Indians shot it down before it reached Pakistan and both they and we are hushing it up.
“Way-points are geographic coordinates that help pilots navigate along established air corridors. The last confirmed position of MH370 on civilian radar was at 35,000 feet about 90 miles off the east coast of Malaysia, heading toward Vietnam, near a navigational way-point called “Igari” at 1:21 a.m. local time.”
“Reuters said the military radar data seen by its sources suggests the plane then turned sharply westwards, heading toward a way-point called “Vampi,” northeast of Indonesia’s Aceh province and a navigational point used for planes following route N571 to the Middle East. From there, the plot indicates the plane flew toward a way-point called “Gival”, south of the Thai island of Phuket, and was last plotted heading northwest toward another way-point called “Igrex”, on route P628 that would take it over the Andaman Islands and which carriers use to fly toward Europe.”

Another thing I’ve wondered about is the spot where Bin Laden was dumped overboard. It wouldn’t surprise me if islamderthals wouldn’t kill a few hundred people in his honor.
Ping on missing Malaysian airliner.
One would think authorities are doing intensive background searches on every single passenger.
The news media and news reports do not understand the data down link on the 777. There are 2 separate systems. ACARS and AHM System. The ACARS downloads an engine data report three times during every flight: at gear up, at cruise initiation (1:07 am), and gear down. The system was not disabled. The gear never came down so the final data report was never sent. The second data reporting system is called Airplane Health Management system. It is built into every 777. It is always operating. The system reports to Boeing servers thru Iridium low earth orbit satellites once per hour. The airline must pay a subscription fee to obtain the data. MAL was not a subscriber. They did not get any data; however, they system pings the server once per hour over the life of the aircraft. The ping would travel thru the nearest Iridium satellite to the Boeing server. The server would log the time and aircraft ID. By back - tracking thru the satellite system that handled the pings would allow the ground folks to reconstruct the flight path. That is why India has been asked to help and why the destroyer Kidd has been sent to the Indian ocean.
I have been thinking about the passengers and how they would deal with them. If they didn’t have weapons on board and wanted to quietly get to their destination, they were flying at a perfect time of night. The passengers would probably be asleep. Any deviation, the pilot could tell the passengers it was a minor navigation correction. Given the length of the flight, people on board might not notice
Staying primarily over water would keep the cell phones inactive till they reached land. Then they could more dramatically deal with the everyone on board.
I want to believe that our government is on this in a big way.
There are a dozen or so airfields on Indian Ocean islands that are predominantly Muslim. However I can’t really see a secret like a 777 being kept successfully.
Technically, we could also say it was headed in the direction of Lake Michigan (either from the east or from the west).
My guess is wherever that plane is the powers that be know about it. They just are not ready to share with us.
Thank you for the information.
Thanks for the reply. No one seems to be interested in the facts. Do a Google search on boeing 777 ahm. It is available for anyone to read about.
Thanks. Great info
One of the significant comments in this article is: Reuters said the military radar data seen by its sources
Reuters is not revealing sources. It earlier spoke of a rift between US and Malaysian investigators. It's become a common comment that Malaysia is obfuscating, perhaps to save face.
However, this seems deeper than that. Reuters sources almost certainly are US.
Going over the Andamans, the choice is between landfall in Bangladesh or Burma (Myanmar). Myanmar would be a candidate for terrorist activity, perhaps.
Looked it up after you posted. Thanks.
It amazes me how lazy the news media is. Even the expert talking heads are too lazy to do a Google search.
