THIS PLANE will be found and its probablya freak circumstance or pilot error.

True may be found about MH370 in many years time.


At least we know the AirAsia plane wasn’t lost to terrorism.

^ Poor aviation expert…

The world seems to be losing more planes than it finds.


#684

Looks like they found it. Bodies and debris.


#685

A lot of assumptions in this thread. There will be many months of investigation before a proper report of the incident is given. I don’t see why we need to guess so much as to what happened.

Just hope by some miracle they find a survivor or two.

All the more crazy that they haven’t found any wreckage from the other one that disappered.

not really, the indian ocean is huge, it’d be like finding a needle in a haystack where theres multiple multiple haystacks. and they didn’t even know which haystack.

But there’s been no sightings via satellite, nothing from sea or air, nothing wash up in WA. Nothing.

There were some ‘witness’ accounts of a plane on fire in the area, but this hasn’t lead to anything being found.

Kathleen Bangs?

This was a straightforward case - Debris found after two days - Probably be around 12 months before investigators can give a likely scenario.

MH370 - Indian Ocean - Doubtful !

Indonesian TV broadcasting images of a floating body to distraught relatives waiting for news of their loved ones was seriously insensitive and quite callous.

Hopefully the Indo government hands out some prison time to the prick that cleared that footage.

Interesting to see another air asia plane ran off the runway at Kalibo this morning. I know that airport, as well as a lot of others in that central visaya’s area. They are all really short.

Reports are saying that an earlier Cebu Pacific flight turned around and went back to Manila due to weather conditions, but the air asia crew gave it a shot anyway.

Ive never flown air asia, or zest air, but I do use cebu pacific and PAL often over there. The last one was a few weeks ago during Typhoon Ruby, I caught the last flight out of Manila down to Tagbilaran just as the typhoon was coming in. The pilot flew wide out to the china sea, went into a holding patern for a little while and picked his moment to land. Was actually one of the smoothest flights I’ve had there.

I know this is an over simplistic question, but if conditions are that bad, could not just turn the plane around? If I was a passenger I would accept that as a reason


#695

Thats exactly what should happen. Or divert to another airport,. I’ve had that happen a few times, much better.

Don’t stress - This is common practice and acceptable in Indonesia.

Well it was clearly distressful for the relatives and so obviously unacceptable. Indonesia media need to lift their game.

It happens in a number of countries in S/E Asia - Because one or two relatives were distressed doesn’t mean its unacceptable in those societies.

What about the one that crashed at an air show in 1988?

Thanks for bringing that up. On this occasion it was concluded that the crew had failed to take proper account of the visual and aural info available to them regarding elevation. Pilot error. Thankfully only 3 souls were lost that day from 136 people on board.

That sounds about right. Might’ve been the pilot’s unfamiliarity with fly-by-wire as well iirc. It’s hard to remember every episode of Air Crash Investigations exactly!
