Lost Malaysian airliner

Recommended Posts

Guess where the plane is. Could it be a coincidence or, hmmmmmmm. Tawi-Tawi is an island province of the Philippines located in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

Military verifying reports of MH-370 wreckage, human remains in Tawi-Tawi

The military on Monday said it is verifying a report that the ill-fated Malaysian Airlines Flight MH-370 crashed off Ubian Island in Tawi-Tawi province.


Unconfirmed reports claim that some bird hunters were able to locate plane parts and skeletal remains of passengers and crew members of the aircraft in a remote part of the island.

Naval Task Force 61 head Capt. Giovanni Carlo Bacordo said a gunboat has been deployed off the island on Sunday to talk with fishermen and residents regarding the report.

“So far, our questionings have determined that island residents have no knowledge of (a plane crashing in their locality),” Bacordo said in Filipino.

He said even long-time residents of the island could not recall seeing or hearing reports of plane wreckage or human remains being found in the remote parts of their locality.

“They were surprised by this report and were asking us on where it came from,” he added.

Bacordo said the crew is still in the area and conducting interviews with the residents.

The plane, a Boeing 777-200 aircraft coded as flight MH370, lost contact with the air traffic control in Kuala Lumpur 2:40 a.m. on March 8, 2014.

Flight MH370 left Kuala Lumpur 12:41 a.m. for Beijing, China. The flight, piloted by Malaysian Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, was carrying 227 passengers, including two infants, and 12 crew members.

The passengers are citizens from China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, France, the US, New Zealand, Ukraine, Canada, Russia, Italy, Taiwan, the Netherlands, and Austria. http://www.mb.com.ph/military-verifying-reports-of-mh-370-wreckage-human-remains-in-tawi-tawi/

They don't necessarily wish to fly it into a building. If they did it would already have been reported by the time you made the above post.   The US isn't the only country anyone in the world thinks

I dunno flame me if you will, but there were a lot of people on that plane and all these flippant comments seem rather disrespectful to those who are missing and their families.  My view anyway.

High tech drones are flown remotely every day.   But a commercial airliner that can be taken over by remote control on demand - horseshit   They aren't talking about a specific airframe that has b

AFP: No Malaysian plane wreck found in Tawi-Tawi

ZAMBOANGA - The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has denied reports that the wreck of a Malaysian aircraft has been found in South Ubian town, Tawi-Tawi province.

Rear Admiral Primitivo Gopo, commander of Joint Task Group Zamboanga-Basilan-Sulu-Tawi-Tawi (ZamBaSulTa), said they immediately deployed their water assets to the island town of South Ubian to verify information that the wreckage of an aircraft with the Malaysian flag painted on it has been found.

However, after hours of checking the area, soldiers from the Philippine Navy did not find any aircraft wreckage.

Gopo said they also coordinated with local officials and the Philippine National Police (PNP), but they also had no information about the alleged wreckage, which was reported by a Filipino to the Malaysian government.

According to a report on The Strait Times on Sunday, police in the Malaysian state of Sabah received a report from a Filipino man who spotted the wreckage with human remains at Ubian Island a few days ago.

In the report, the man said his nephew and a few others were hunting for birds when they spotted the wreckage on the island. The group managed to get near the wreckage and found human bones. They also took a flag they found in the wreckage before they left.

The man said he informed the police as the wreckage could be that of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared in March 2014.

MH370 was carrying more than 200 crew and passengers, mostly Chinese nationals, when it disappeared.

Last July, a wing component, known as a flaperon, of the said aircraft was found in the coastline of the Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

The Malaysian government confirmed last month that it was part of the aircraft's wing, based on the paint color and the maintenance record of the airline company.

I personally really hate flying, i've had numerous nightmares about me being on an airplane which crashed. This only makes it even scarier for me to fly. 


Nightmares? You could open the door, fly on the sky for the first time of your life (unless you have done BASE jumping), fall like a comet, then in a blink wake up in some beautiful place and say hello to Jesus!


It'd be lovely!  :yahoo:
