Malaysia Airlines Plane Crashes in South China Sea with 239 People|B777 Flight MH370

PRAY FOR MH370 !

Malaysia Airlines Plane Crashes In South China Sea With 239 People Aboard - 8 Mar - YouTube

Malaysia Airlines Plane Crashes In South China Sea With 239 People Aboard - 8 Mar 2014People - 8 Mar 2014 - Boeing 777 carrying 239 people vanishes over Vietnam 'after abruptly plunging 200ft' two hours after take-off amid fears of crash

A major search has been launched for a Malaysian Airlines jet with 239 people on board after it lost contact flying from Kuala Lumpur to *******.

Airline officials admitted they were gravely concerned for the safety of the aircraft.
It was not immediately known which nationalities were on board the jet which was flying on a popular route.

An unconfirmed report on a flight tracking website said the aircraft had plunged 200m and changed course shortly before all contact was lost.

The route would have taken flight MH370, a B777-200 aircraft, across the Malaysian mainland in a north easterly direction and then across the Gulf of Thailand.

Those on board included two infants and 12 crew members, Malaysian Airlines said in a statement, adding it was working with all authorities in the region and search and rescue teams had been mobilised.

The aircraft had been due to land in ******* at 6.30am local time but at 7.54am the airline issued a statement saying it had not landed and was officially missing.

Aviation experts said that if the report of the aircraft suddenly plunging was correct it could be due to a number of factors.

These include a catastrophic engine failure, the pilots taking evasive action to avoid another aircraft, or an explosion.

The airline has not said whether the pilots were able to issue a distress call - but if they did not, experts said this could indicate a catastrophy that had occurred without warning.
Malaysian Airlines said it would issue updates as soon as more information became available.

The aircraft had enough fuel on board for a seven hour flight and and the airline said that given the time it has been missing it would have already run out of fuel.

Fearing the worst, the airline has begun contacting relatives of the passengers warning them that the flight has not arrived and they should prepare themselves for bad news.
The Boeing jet lost contact with Malaysian air traffic controllers a little over two hours into its flight.

NEW YORK: Boeing said Monday it has joined an official US team investigating the still-mysterious disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines 777 aircraft, feared to have plunged into the Gulf of Thailand.

Boeing said it would act as technical advisor to the US National Transportation Safety Board team already in Southeast Asia to offer assistance.

The Malaysia Airlines plane that went missing Saturday on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to ******* was a Boeing 777, a model which up to now has seen only one fatal crash.

The popular family of long-range, wide-body, twin-engine planes have a solid safety record and have been among the world’s most widely flown passenger jets since first entering service in 1995.

In the sole fatal crash involving the planes, a Boeing 777-200 operated by South Korea’s Asiana Airlines skidded off the runway upon landing at San Francisco’s international ******* in July 2013, with three dead as a result.

The Malaysia Airlines flight that lost contact with authorities Saturday was a Boeing 777-200, with 239 people aboard.

Boeing said in a statement that it “continues to offer its thoughts and deepest concern to the families of those aboard Malaysia Airlines flight 370, which went missing on March 8.”-- AFP

Was MH370 Carrying Killer Cargo?

Malaysian officials have confirmed that a consignment of lithium-ion batteries was in the cargo hold of Flight MH370. “These are not regarded as dangerous goods,” said the CEO of Malaysian Airlines, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, “and were packed as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.”

Little attention has been given to what was in the cargo hold of the Boeing 777, yet this would automatically be of interest to accident investigators. In this case the continued emphasis by the Malaysians on actions by the pilots and suspicions of a hijacking seem to have skewed the priorities.

The International Air Transport Association, IATA has pointed out that millions of lithium-ion batteries are safely carried by air every year. (The International Civil Aviation Organisation, ICAO, sets recommended safety standards while IATA represents airlines)

In the U.S., however, the Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Security and Hazardous Materials Safety keeps a list of incidents involving these batteries. They include:

The hands of a passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight burned when spare lithium-ion batteries for a cell phone melted the zip-top bag in which they were carried, breached the passenger’s carry-on bag and produced smoke and flames.

A package of 18 lithium-ion batteries melted through their plastic wrap and set fire to their outer package at the UPS flight center in Louisville, Kentucky.

A FedEx pilot was taking the jump seat in the cockpit of a flight from Memphis when a lithium-ion battery in a flashlight carried in his backpack caught fire while the airplane was still at the gate.

The FAA cautions that their published list of scores of incidents does not represent all the information collected nor “all investigative or enforcement actions taken.”

As became apparent during a National Transportation Safety Board hearing last year into fires in the larger lithium-ion batteries used to power the systems of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, even the manufacturers concede that the technology has not matured enough for them fully to understand how spontaneous meltdowns occur, either in a single cell or when one cell meltdown breaches its casing and spreads to another cell.

We don’t know what else was in the cargo bays of Flight MH370 but during any investigation by the NTSB everything on the cargo manifest would be carefully scrutinized and, given their record and the NTSB’s recent technical investigation of them, lithium-ion batteries would receive particular scrutiny. At the very least, until proved otherwise, cargo should be given equal weight with other scenarios as the possible cause of an accident.

International flights most likely to be carrying lithium-ion batteries are those originating in the countries that manufacture them, which include Malaysia, Taiwan and Japan.

Meanwhile, the search for the wreckage of the 777 ended a second day without finding any. This hunt involves an unusual alliance of intelligence, military and civilian resources.

Crucial to the first step of the search are the most heavily veiled of assets, the satellites. The search is being conducted in a part of the world, Asia, where the United States and China are devoting their most secret resources to watching each other.

Air Commodore John McGarry of the Royal Australian Air Force was carefully cryptic when discussing the images which have now concentrated the search far out into the ocean southwest of Australia. “The imagery has been progressively captured by satellites passing over various areas,” he said. No indication of whose satellites they were.

DigitalGlobe Inc, a Colorado company working for the U.S. government collected the images on Sunday. They passed them to the Australians, who released them late Wednesday EST.

The clock here is ticking with some urgency: beacons attached to the Boeing 777’s flight data recorders are already nearly half way through their effective battery life of 30 days. Not only that, but the pings sent out from the beacons to guide searchers to the location have an effective range of only five miles.

This might seem to be an inexcusably long lag in response time but it’s not as simple as that. Commodore McGarry pointed out that the output from the satellite has to be analyzed frame by frame, and covers a large area.

The Australians speak with awe of what they call the Great Southern Ocean.

Just how seriously this information was treated is indicated by the fact that ships and airplanes began to be moved into the southern Indian Ocean on Tuesday.

Last week the Chinese released a satellite image of what they suggested might be wreckage from the Boeing 777 in the South China Sea. It was soon clear that it was not, and the Chinese then said that releasing the image had been a mistake.

The resolution of the images that are publicly released is probably a lot less than in the originals. The Chinese images were notably indistinct and those released by the Australians this week are little better. Sharpness of the image is an indication of how advanced the satellites are and the publicly released quality is quite likely degraded for security reasons.

The effectiveness of the search is heavily dependent on military airplanes given the mission of first confirming that what the satellite has pinpointed is actually the wreckage. There is a large area to be scoured and the amount of time the airplane can spend over its assigned zone is critical.

In the current search there is a marked disparity between the Australian and United States resources. The Australians are able to spend only two hours in the search zone. They are using Lockheed Orion P3s, which have been in service for 30 years and are derived from a 1960s airliner, the Lockheed Electra. Their fuel reserves allow them four hours to get there and another four to return. The United States is deploying the Orion’s successor, the Boeing P8 Poseidon that is derived from the Boeing 737 and can spend four hours in the search zone.

Malaysian woman claims to have seen missing MH370 in the water near Andaman Islands on day it disappeared

  • Latife Dalelah said she saw aircraft-shaped object on Kuala Lumpur flight
  • She told an air stewardess what she'd seen, but was told to get some sleep
  • A pilot said she would have been too high up to identify a plane in water
  • Aircraft and ships renew their search for MH370 in the Andaman Sea
  • Dalelah's sighting made five days before search expanded to its location

Saturday, March 22, 05:59 PM MYT +0800 Malaysia Airlines MH370 Flight Incident - Press Briefing by Hishammuddin Hussein, Minister of Defence and Acting Minister of Transport

Introductory statement
Diplomatic, logistical and technical efforts continue in the search for MH370. As we intensify the search and rescue operations, the overall emphasis remains the same: using all available means to narrow the search areas in both corridors.
1. Operational update
In the northern corridor, in response to diplomatic notes, we can confirm that China, India, Pakistan, Myanmar, Laos, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan have verbally informed the search and rescue operation that based on preliminary analysis, there have been no sightings of the aircraft on their radar.
With respect to the southern corridor, today two Chinese Ilyushin IL-76s will arrive in Perth to begin operations. The Shaanxi Y-8 which arrived yesterday will be operating from Subang air base in Malaysia. China is also sending an additional two ships from the Andaman Sea to join the five Chinese ships already in the southern corridor. Two Indian aircraft, a P-8 Poseidon and C-130 Hercules, arrived in Malaysia at 18:00 last night to assist with the search.
HMS Echo is currently in the Persian Gulf and is en route to the southern corridor. The ship is equipped with advanced sensors that allow it to search effectively underwater.
2. Australian search area
Five aircraft and two merchant ships were involved in the search and rescue operations in the vicinity of the objects identified by the Australian authorities, which are approximately 2,500km southwest of Perth. Despite improved visual search conditions yesterday, there were no sightings of the objects of interest.
Operations continue, and today they plan to search an area of approximately 10,500 square nautical miles.
The Rescue Co-ordination Centre Australia anticipates that 6 aircraft, 4 military and 2 civilian, will be visually searching the area. Two merchant vessels will also be present during search operations, and HMAS Success was due to reach the search area at 14:30 today.
Generally, conditions in the southern corridor are very challenging. The ocean varies between 1,150 metres and 7,000 metres in depth. In the area where the possible objects were identified by the Australian authorities there are strong currents and rough seas.
A cyclone warning has been declared for Tropical Cyclone Gillian, which is located in the southern corridor. Very strong winds and rough seas are expected there today.
3. Family briefings
The briefing for families in KL yesterday went well. The briefing in *******, however, was less productive. Despite the best intentions, I understand there were tense scenes.
I have received a report from the Malaysian high-level team, as well as a copy of the declaration from the Chinese families. I have asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with the authorities in China, to investigate what happened.
We will continue to engage with the families. We are working hard with Chinese authorities and the Chinese working group to create a more conducive environment for the briefings. I have instructed my technical team to do a review of both briefings so that we can improve them.
We appeal to all parties to be understanding during this extraordinary and difficult time. My pledge to all the families, wherever they are, is the same: we will do everything in our power to keep you informed.
4. Transcript
The original transcript of the conversation between MH370 and Malaysian air traffic control is with the investigations team, where it is being analysed.
As is standard practice in investigations of this sort, the transcript cannot be publicly released at this stage. I can however confirm that the transcript does not indicate anything abnormal.
5. Cargo manifest
On the matter of MH370’s cargo, the cargo manifest is with the investigations team, and will be released in due course.
Preliminary investigation of the cargo manifest has not shown any link to anything that might have contributed to MH370’s disappearance.
As was stated yesterday, all cargo carried on MH370 was in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organisation and International Air Transport Association standards.
6. Concluding remarks
Over the past two weeks, the search for MH370 has taken many twists and turns. From satellite images to eyewitness accounts, we have followed every lead and investigated every possibility.
Today we are focused on leads from the satellite images announced by the Australian authorities on Thursday. We continue to be updated by the Australian authorities on an hourly basis.
I know this rollercoaster has been incredibly hard for everyone, especially for the families. We hope and pray this difficult search will be resolved, and bring closure to those whose relatives were on board.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all 26 countries who are with us in this effort; from ordinary people to the highest levels of government.
I would also like to pay special tribute to the men and women from all countries who are putting themselves in harm’s way in the search for MH370.
As we speak, people are sailing through a cyclone to help find the missing plane. We are immensely grateful to all our partners for their efforts.

The revelation that flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean is based on new analysis by UK investigators and the British satellite firm Inmarsat, Malaysia's prime minister has said.
Najib Razak said relatives of the flight's 239 passengers and crew had been told of the "heartbreaking" news.
Inmarsat used new techniques to detect the plane's course, he said.
The UK's Air Accidents Investigation Branch, which probes serious civil aircraft incidents, was also involved.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing after taking off from Kuala Lumpur on 8 March.
Mr Razak's announcement came as the international search effort reached a fifth day of operations in the southern Indian Ocean......

A further 122 objects potentially from the missing Malaysian plane have been identified by satellite, the country's acting transport minister has said.
The images, taken on 23 March, showed objects up to 23m (75ft) in length, Hishammuddin Hussein said.
All aircraft taking part in Wednesday's search have now left the area without identifying debris from the plane.
Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to ******* disappeared on 8 March with 239 people on board...
