The title of a recently released CBS News article is “Malaysia Airlines LOSES CONTACT WITH plane en route to Beijing with 239 aboard” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/malaysia-airlines-loses-contact-with-plane-en-route-to-beijing-with-239-aboard/).
“A Malaysia Airlines carrying 239 people from Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) to Beijing (PEK) went missing over the South China Sea on Saturday (March 8 2014), prompting China to send ships to scour the water for possible wreckage”.
“The airline, speaking several hours after the plane had been due to land in the Chinese capital, said IT WAS STILL TOO EARLY TO SAY whether the aircraft had crashed. It said there had been NO distress signal and it cited early SPECULATION that the plane MAY have landed in Nanning in southern China”. “may” reinforces the fact that this is ONLY “speculation”.
“As news of the disappearance filtered through to DISTRAUGHT friends and relatives who had been waiting for the flight to arrive in Beijing, Malaysia Airlines said it was still investigating and took no questions at a brief news conference”. This is EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). People SHOULD BE “distraught”.
“In a statement, the airlines’ (Malaysia Airlines) group chief executive officer, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said: “Our team is currently calling the next-of-kin of passengers and crew“. This is another OMINOUS indicator. “Focus of the airline is to work with the emergency responders and authorities and mobilize its full support. Our THOUGHTS and PRAYERS are with all affected passengers and crew and their family members“. Again as we’ve said on numerous occasions “thoughts and prayers” AREN’T enough for MANY.
“Flight MH370 departed from Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) at 12:41 a.m. Saturday local time (March 8, 2014), according to a statement from the airline. It was scheduled to land in Beijing at 6:30 a.m.”
“The plane last had contact with air traffic controllers two hours after it took off 120 nautical miles off the east coast of the Malaysian town of Kota Bharu, the airline said on Saturday (March 8, 2014)”.
“An official at the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam said the plane had FAILED to check in as scheduled while it was flying over the sea between Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh City”. Again, that’s NOT good.
“Bui Van Vo, the authority’s flight control department manager, told Reuters by telephone”, “Its (MH370’s) code DIDN’T appear in our system“.
“China’s OFFICIAL Xinhua news agency also quoted the Civil Aviation Administration of China as saying the flight lost contact while flying through VIETNAMESE airspace”.
“No signal had been picked up from the plane in Vietnam, a Vietnamese rescue official said on Saturday (March 8, 2014)”.
“Pham Hien, director of a Vietnam maritime search and rescue coordination center in Vung Tau (2 hours from the capital Ho Chi Minh City), told Reuters by telephone” “We have been seeking, but NO signal from the plane YET“. WILL THERE EVER BE a “signal” from Flight MH370?
“Vietnamese and Chinese media had reported that a signal from the plane had been picked up. The reports did not identify what kind of signal”.
Pham went on: “The information on local media about the signal near the Cape Ca Mau was INACCURATE“, as is the case with A LOT OF “information”.
“In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters, “We are EXTREMELY worried. WE ARE DOING ALL WE CAN to get details. The news is VERY DISTURBING. We HOPE EVERYONE ON THE PLANE IS SAFE” and yet Chinese leaders ARE STILL screaming about the SENKAKU Islands (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/japan-u-differ-china-talks-grey-zone-military-221953737.html?soc_src=mediacontentstory).
Finally, “Distressed family members of those on board had begun gathering at Beijing airport on Saturday (March 8, 2014)”.
“Chang Ken Fei, a Malaysian waiting at Beijing airport for friends to arrive, said”: “I got here at seven (a.m.). At first, I thought the plane was just delayed as normal, so I came a bit later. I’ve just been waiting and waiting. I asked them what was going on, but they just tell us, ‘WE DON’T KNOW‘”. In Chinese and other COMMUNIST societies, government officials won’t even tell us what they “know”. In other words, much is HIDDEN/CONCEALED. FRUSTRATION IS CLEARLY MOUNTING HERE (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI&hd=1).
