The Malaysian Triangle
If you have an iPhone, or any smartphone for that matter, then you know that it's damn near impossible to lose it. Why is that? There's are an endless amount of phone locator apps along with the usual government-sponsored tracking software ingrained within the phone itself. You see it on TV all the time. If cops or a suspicious girlfriend wants to locate you, all they have to do is log into some cell phone towers, ping your device, and after some computer triangulation and whatever, your coordinates magically pop up on the screen. Then your girlfriend proceeds to your location to confront you and the side chick that she thinks your with. This is just another example of how 21st century technology has made our lives so much easier. However, what I'm trying to figure out is how can somebody flush their smartphone down the toilet and locate it in five minutes, but the Malaysian government can LOSE A 777 PASSENGER PLANE WITH AN INDESTRUCTIBLE BLACK BOX?!?! Here's a quick synopsis of the event in case you forgot:
On March 8, 2014, Flight MH370 left Malaysia to fly to its destination in Beijing, China. According to the Malaysian air traffic control records, the plane was headed in a northeasterly direction towards Beijing. About an hour or so into the flight, the plane made a sharp turn and started flying due west toward the Indian Ocean. The last successful radar ping of the plane was somewhere west of Thailand over the Andaman Ocean before it disappeared into thin air. The Malaysia government along with a coalition of other nations in the western Pacific region began the official search for the lost plane. The international search party did the math and calculated the fuel range of Flight MH370 from its last recorded location and created a search window. This window covered nearly the entire Indian Ocean and western Australia. After 16 days of a thorough and exhaustive search, the international rescue/salvage operation came up with absolutely NOTHING.
The Malaysian government threw in the towel on March 24, 2014 after failing to locate any sign of the wreckage of the plane. Then in July 2015, some pieces of Flight MH370 alleged washed up on the shores of East Africa. This discovery is rather odd because the international search parties combed an entire ocean top to bottom for two weeks and they couldn’t recover a shred of anything. However, we are supposed to believe that a salvage team could stumble upon a random wing fragment before finding the black box?? Are you kidding me? There’s a good reason why I keep harping on about the black box a.k.a. the flight recorder. These devices were designed to withstand just about anything under the sun. Once you read about the capabilities of the typical flight recorder, it will be easy to see why the official story line about Flight MH370 vanishing into thin air is pure FICTION! There’s even more interesting layers to this story. It’s easy to see why people are focused on the plane itself and where it went.
However, what people should really ask themselves is WHO was on the plane? The passenger manifest is a key item here because according to this article that I read about Flight MH370, there were a few defense contractors on the plane that were allegedly working on a new form of microchip technology that was so powerful that it would revolutionize warfare as we know it. The article also stated that the U.S. military hijacked the plane and flew it to a base at Diego Garcia to extract the American defense contractors and their microchip from the plane before it got into the hands of the Chinese. There are other theories floating out there, but I think that this theory sounds like the most feasible. The disappearance of Flight MH370 will go down as one of the greatest mysteries ever. But I have a funny feeling that there will be more valuable nuggets of information that will leak out about it for years to come.
