Day 43 Malaysian plane mystery: US military base on Diego Garcia atoll IS involved

Does anyone else smell a rat close by? This incident is beginning to stink of American involvement. Nothing like it has ever occurred in aviation history. Cell phone calls not able to be traced; no radar tracings; transponders turned off; no wreckage spotted; and a large plane with 239 people aboard vanishes without a trace. Enter the secret military base at the Diego Garcia atoll, which has a huge runway and is four hours flying time from Malaysia. Only government personal with a high security clearance work there; clearly visible are over a dozen B-52 aircraft on the 2014 satellite Google Map. With the tens of billions of dollars needed to build and maintain this facility, Diego Garcia must have its own dedicated satellite surveillance system that would show any aircraft, ships, or submarines getting even remotely close to this facility. However, the level of sophistication of its radar is classified and unverifiable. With the plane now missing for 43 days (1,000+ hours), the 'thinkables' have become unlikely and so the 'unthinkables' have become possibilities.

This is pure speculation NO LONGER, or so it would seem! Maldives island residents reported sighting of 'low flying jet' on the morning of the plane's disappearance that was finally reported on twelve days after the fact. The pilot of the missing plane had a home flight simulator, which was been reported twelve days later to contain the landing simulation program of the Diego Garcia runway along with four other runway approaches in the region. Whether any, all, or none of this information is true is still a matter of conjecture. What remains a fact is that not a trace of the Malaysian 777-200ER has been found. At his daily news briefing on 3-18-14, WH spokesperson Jay Carney has denied any involvement of the Diego Garcia facility with the disappearance of flight MH370.

Cops find five Indian Ocean practice runways in MH370 pilot’s simulator
March 18, 2014

“The simulation programmes are based on runways at the Male International Airport in Maldives, an airport owned by the United States (Diego Garcia), and three other runways in India and Sri Lanka, all have runway lengths of 1,000 metres.

“We are not discounting the possibility that the plane landed on a runway that might not be heavily monitored, in addition to the theories that the plane landed on sea, in the hills, or in an open space,” the source was quoted as saying.
MH370: Pentagon has "indications" that the missing plane may be in the Indian Ocean
March 14, 2014

An official from the United States (US) revealed “indications” that Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 which went missing since March 8, may have crashed into an area where the Indian Ocean and the Andaman Sea merge and are sending the USS Kidd to the area to begin searching, reported ABC news.

The official, however told ABC News that they needed 24 hours before the ship could be deployed to the area.

US military base Diego Garcia [has an huge runway] is located at the Indian Ocean.

And another thing ...

... actually, a few things that are bugging me about all of this.

(1) The 2 Iranians with the stolen passports. How do they know they were Iranian if they boarded with fake ID?

(2) Remember when Inmarsat said the pings at 7:11 and 8:11 were on the same or nearly identical "arc?" That story seems to have vanished. Why?

(3) Why hasn't Inmarsat released ALL the data/arcs they have to the public? No doubt, there are some smart guys on their team doing some calculations, but c'mon. There's around 7 billion of us out here. There might be one guy who can crack the case. After all, we ARE trying to find a plane here, right? Funny how they want to have the public help them crack the case if they want to find 2 Chechen guys in Boston who they already know about and have been tracking, even though they pretend they have no idea who they are. Yet, the public couldn't possibly help find a missing plane.

(4) Is there any evidence that the phone used to call the pilot 2 minutes before take-off is still around? Can they find that phone? In Malaysia, every phone purchased must be in someone's name, and that someone must show ID when they buy it (no paying cash without ID like elsewhere in the world). The captain received a call 2 minutes before take-off. When they looked up who it was registered to, it was a woman who said her passport had been stolen (sound familiar)? Although the propaganda media is pushing the story that it was the captain's girlfriend-on-the-side who called him, nobody knows. All we know is that the phone was registered with false ID. Could have been anybody making that call. Where is the phone? Did it vanish? If so, that should raise an eyebrow. If not, who has it?

(5) This whole thing about the Doppler effect with the 8:11 satellite ping does not make sense. They could use Doppler to identify where the satellite was by looking at the time for a signal to reach from the satellite to the ground station (and compare with what it would be if the satellite was at its home base), but they seem to be saying they are using it by checking the time for the ping to travel from the plane to the satellite. No way, Jose. All that tells us is the distance from the plane to the satellite. All that does is possibly change the arc. It does not tell us if the wavelength is getting longer or shorter because there is only one datapoint for that time period. They also don't know altitude, speed, or direction of the plane. They have no previous datapoints with this plane on that route that they can compare against, so the only thing the ping can tell is the distance from the satellite. Of course, that assumes the ping data is real in the first place. The engineers and mathematicians could have been provided the data after it first went through some person acting as a security gatekeeper. No evidence of that, of course, but the company does have some questionable characters associated with it.

Just seems like a clusterf**k.

Oh, God. Info about geosynch. satellites above DG REMOVED!!!

The information about Diego Garcia satellites has been deleted from the answers.com website. Compare what I copied 10 days ago and now. This is getting frekking scary.
all commercial telephone services are available, including connection to the Internet

The question of whether they know where the plane is can now be answered absolutely "YES". They know, but they remain silent. A message sent anonymously would work to end this nightmare for the families of the passengers. What the hell are they waiting for?
"Separate telephone facilities for military and public needs are available, providing all standard commercial telephone services, including connection to the Internet. International telephone service is carried by communications satellite. The territory has three radio broadcast stations, one AM and two FM, and one television broadcast station. Because of its equatorial location, Diego Garcia can use geosynchronous satellites over the Indian Ocean and also some over the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Amateur radio operations occur from Diego Garcia, using the British call-sign prefix VQ9."

Satellite? ...

... what satellite?


All flights into Diego Garcia cancelled on March 8th ...

... for the next 72 hours.


The only source of "data" to tell us where Flight 370 MIGHT be is the satellite company, Inmarsat.

Inmarsat has connections to the George Bush gang, being 28% owned by Harbinger, a company connected to Bush's Zapata Corporation from back in the day.


Permira is also a major owner of Inmarsat.


And what do you know? Some of the high-tech Chinese passengers aboard Flight 370 worked for Freescale, which is owned in part by Permira and Carlyle Group, another Bush connection.

Carlyle Group, of course, also owns Booz Allen Hamilton, the company spying on you for the NSA.

The story gets more and more ... uhh ... "spooky."

Interesting that Inmarsat has basically directed the search and been the sole source of "data" as to WHEN and WHERE the plane went down. If their data is not valid for some reason, the plane could be anywhere.

So far ... no plane found ... not even a trace. Maybe it's time to start questioning the source of that data.

The plot thickens ...

Thank you, Tommy.

This rabbit hole is going deeper than even I thought. If this turns out to be true, this is amazing info. Even if it cannot be substantiated, neither can anything else to date. Fantastic find, bro.

You said this:
"The only source of "data" to tell us where Flight 370 MIGHT be is the satellite company, Inmarsat"

There is another satellite available:
There is a satellite in geosynchronous orbit directly above Diego Garcia providing 24/7 real time imagery.

There's another satellite ...

... over Diego Garcia?

Gee ... I wonder why we haven't heard anything from those folks.

We are told by the propaganda media that the next satellite over is WAAAAY "over there" above Africa, so it could not give us any info about 370.

I have no doubt that Diego Garcia has satellite footage and radar that could have detected a missing flight over the Indian Ocean if 370 was legitimately lost at sea.

Hell, one of Diego Garcia's FUNCTIONS is to manage satellites in the area! Well, that and launch attacks against people named "Abdul."

P.S. To be fair, though (as if we should be), the only satellites that count here are the ones that have pings to the plane, which would be the Inmarsat ones, or any satellite that could have seen something with cameras (like maybe DG).

Of the 100s of objects seen by multi-satellites, none recovered.

Multiple satellites from a host of countries visualizing hundreds of floating objects at ever changing locations, and exactly zero have as yet been recovered. None.
From a blog site, which is true:
DawgCountry: "Searchers have yet to find any of the objects shown in satellite images, going back to last week when Australian authorities revealed their analysis of commercial satellite images showed a promising group of objects some 1,500 miles off the country's west coast."

It's enough to make you wonder: Have they found that proverbial haystack inside which they'll find the well-hidden wreckage?

Thanks, SteveMT

You have really done a great job of sleuthing out the mystery! Here and there the pieces get sorted out, hell, maybe we will never know and have to wait for Popular Mechanics to tell us..(sarc)

Hopefully if it was a FF plot in the making it has seriously gotten botched up or delayed (I hope) too many people are not buying the explanations. Too many different stories from officials and MSM that don't add up that's for sure! It reminds me of Bush saying "Nope, no WMD's over there, let's look over here now..nope none there! evil laugh ha ha ha!"

Keep up the good work and thanks for the updates!

Passengers' families want real evidence, not cash pay-off/hush $

MH370: Compensation matters being discussed by MAS, families and legal teams
Updated: March 29, 2014

Malaysian Airlines (MAS) is discussing compensation matters with few legal teams and families of those who were on-board the missing flight MH370.

MAS Chief Executive Officer, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya however said, what is being demanded by the families for now are evidences saying that the plane is missing, and not cash.

"So far what is being asked by the families are solid evidence, meaning that they want evidence of the aircraft."

Dolphin submarines at Diego Garcia

Dolphins at Diego Garcia

Instead of flying to Iran immediately, MH370 presumably landed at the gateway to the Persian Gulf, Diego Garcia, the presumption being based on eyewitness accounts in nearly Maldives of a low-flying plane on descent toward that destination.

On the surface and from satellite images, Diego Garcia seems a barren atoll. That's because most of the US Navy and Air Force bases are underground inside vast bunkers installed a decade ago. The island, part of the British-owned Chagos archipelago south of India, later made headlines as the storage site for hundreds of bunker-buster JDAM bombs for a joint Israel-US airstrike against Iran's nuclear facilities and air defenses.

The Israeli military and intelligence presence on Diego Garcia is so massive that long-distance phone operators offer a special discount card for calls to Israel. The Israeli Navy's nuclear-missile capable Dolphin submarines refuel and are serviced at Diego Garcia, saving the time and expense of going to Elat on the Red Sea.

An IDF Dolphin sub from Diego Garcia sank the South Korean frigate Choenan. The Dolphin crew, panicked by the unscheduled voyage, fired a smart torpedo at the frigate. On the following two days, South Korean naval divers rescued several Caucasians, including two drowning victims, from a sunken submarine. That Dolphin submarine, based at an underwater base south of Inchon, was later replaced with an IDF order for a new sub from HDW Germany. Cannon fire from the Choenan's sister ship had hit the Dolphin after it sank the Choenan, following delivered nuclear-weapons material to the North Korean military.

Israel is neck-deep in intrigue across Asia, including nuclear deals with North Korea and Japan. As mentioned earlier in this series on MH370, Israeli-linked agents including Google and Facebook have monitored email servers across Southeast Asia and hacked into computers of Palestinian supporters.

The role of Israeli intelligence assets inside Muslim-dominated Malaysia is a long-running issue that involves strings of stay-behind agents left by the British colonial authority. These underground networks are descended from two strands of Jewish administrators and merchants in colonial Malaya. First are those who have origins in the Ottoman empire and migrated under Britain's favorable policy toward the Donmeh Jews (hidden Jews inside the Islamic community across the Arab realm, Turkey and Iran) during the Ataturk period. Second are Baghdadi Jews involved in the opium trade. More recent recruits are ordinary bureaucrats and military officers who are in need of a handful of shekels to pay their gambling debts.

The spotting of increasing amounts of flotsam and jetsam off the Australian coast are meant to throw public attention off track. In actual flotation situations, there would be less debris with each passing day, as seats become waterlogged and life jackets deflate. Obviously, submarines from Diego Garcia are jettisoning pieces of aircraft through their missile hatches with blasts of compressed air. Bodies can be frozen in morgues with life jackets to be partially opened before dispatching them out the torpedo tubes.

MH370: Are conspiracy theories such a bad thing? 3-28

Amazing that this story was written today.
MH370: Are conspiracy theories such a bad thing?
Cynthia Ng | Updated: March 28, 2014

We may find out what happened to flight MH370, or maybe we never will.

And even with the discovery of the plane’s wreckage and black box, some of us may never accept its findings.

The announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak that concluded flight MH370 ended in the southern part of the Indian Ocean, came on the 17th day after the plane disappeared on March 8 en-route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

By then, rampant speculations and wild theories have cropped up, and even until today, some are still questioning, some clinging on to hope – that the plane and its 239 souls may have met a different fate and had not plunged into the remote, deep waters of the Indian Ocean.

Conspiracy theories abound, many choose to believe that the government is hiding something from us.

Some suggest that the plane was hijacked, landed at an obscure strip and is to be used as a weapon later on. Others say there was an orchestrated attempt by an Illuminati member to gain rights to a semiconductor patent. There’s also talk of the US Navy diverting the plane to its Diego Garcia secret facility due to a highly suspicious cargo load. The Bermuda Triangle, black hole and aliens could potentially be responsible too, they say.

The possibility of alien

The possibility of alien abduction is finally receiving some attention in the mass media as Clyde Lewis of the program, Ground Zero, tackles the subject today. Only time will tell what likely happened to MH370, but the recorded conversations between pilots regarding UFOs are intriguing. No SANE person can say that encounters with UFOs don't occur ... although some foolishly try. ;)

There is "sealed evidence" about MH370 that will not be released

Sealed evidence (as in JFK, Pentagon videos, Sandy Hook, bin Laden, Benghazi, etc.)? Why who would have thought that after all of this time?
March 26,2014
BEIJING - A Malaysian team have told relatives of Chinese passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 that there was sealed evidence that cannot be made public, as they came under fire from the angry relatives at a briefing on Wednesday.

The sealed evidence included air traffic control radio transcript, radar data and airport security recordings.

Malaysian officials told family members that there was sealed evidence that cannot be made public.
March 27, 2014, 4:13 PM
The families protested Malaysia’s handling of the tragedy this week.

Good job ...

... staying on top of this story, Steve.

I thought Diego Garcia, too. But the problem is that the satellite pings do not support this theory.

Then, I discovered that Inmarsat (the satellite company) is 28% owned by Harbinger Group, a new version of the original Zapata Corporation, which was founded by George H. W. Bush. No doubt, Inmarsat has strong CIA connections.

So, hard to say if even that data is valid. And it is the ONLY data being relied upon to identify the location of the presumed down jet.

So ...

Could Some Of This Sealed Evidence Be,,,

What type of cargo was on the plane??


This is

This is either

A. A distraction and something bigger is going on and we are not being informed about.

B. A plant done by our Government. False Flag ready to happen. Mark Dice exposed the CNN reporter reporting on that plane 2 months before it went missing interviewing the same pilot that is missing. This is starting to reek terror and it was probably set up that way.
Remember.. CNN happened to find Bin Laden too and interviewed him before 9/11.


C. They know exactly where this plane is but they are dragging this story out to gain ratings since nobody watches the garbage media any more.

SteveMT's picture

This is some evidence for CNN meeting w/missing co-pilot.

Thanks for this information. Why did it take two weeks for this meeting to be disclosed, especially by CNN who is covering every aspect of this disappearance (except this one)? There are no coincidences.
STAGED! CNN's Richard Quest Met Flight 370 Co-Pilot Before It Vanished!


Anyone know ...

... if Quest has mentioned his interview of the missing pilot in all the hours he's been on CNN?

SteveMT's picture

A bizarre coincidence or like knowing #7 would fall beforehand.

CNN was using a cropped-picture for 2 weeks that removed their reporter also was purposefully done. Why?

One of the more bizarre coincidences in the mystery of missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 is the fact CNN airline and aviation correspondent Richard Quest met with the co-pilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid, weeks before the plane’s disappearance.

It was part of a taping Quest was doing in February for CNN Business Traveler, and it hasn’t aired yet on CNN. Hamid, a 27-year-old first officer, was taking part in a training session, flying from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur.

Interesting ...

... that British clown they cropped out of the picture has been on CNN 24/7.

Sure would be "inconvenient" for his face to suddenly appear right there on CNN.

This shows that somebody (probably more than just one person) has been intentionally misleading their viewers.

But then, what's new at CNN?

Next, you'll tell us they do fake Middle East stories or use green screen to pretend they're places they are not.


What a pathetic media.

From Veterans Today: Caution My Computer Froze At This Site.

For about 15 minutes

Snip: "We have to deal with what we know and what that means. We know that an airliner was taken, flown thousands of miles. We have surmised that the plane was landed on Diego Garcia, the bodies removed and disposed. As for what cargo was removed, asking is futile.
It certainly wasn’t “lithium ion” batteries as being reported today, not hardly".



"Planes don’t disappear;

"Planes don’t disappear;" ...

False. IIRC, an Australian pilot of a private airplane disappeared without a trace after a series of unworldly distress calls in the late 1970s. Flight 19 and its rescuing aircraft disappeared without a trace. These two examples just come immediately to my mind. The author should have stated that since the probability of an aircraft disappearing is small, we'll likely find its remains eventually. Indeed, they might even if it requires 50 years. In the meantime, an abduction by an UFO is as plausible as any other speculative theory without concrete proof. The article is an interesting possibility, but how can one uncritically accept data from Rolls Royce as accurate and then implicate Rolls Royce as a likely participant in the global military-industrial establishment? The name of Rolls Royce is synonymous with warfare so I'd need verifiable proof of Rolls Royce's data on MH370's engines.

Chinese satellite detects a chunk of debris in S. Corridor

Another day, another satellite sighting this time by China. This maybe the same piece of debris that was seen before on 3-16-14 by the grainy-image, poor quality, public access DigitalGlobe satellite. China has released a similarly poor quality image (at link below). The location is also marked on Google Maps (again at link). Relative to Diego Garcia, which is also in the Southern Hemisphere, this chuck of debris is located only about 3,000 miles away. An expert has said the odds are a million-to-one that this object will ever be found and that it is a piece of flight MH370. The reason is the ocean in that general area tends to accumulate more debris than other locations. Grim.

There is nothing else to report. One blog site has shutdown due to the lack of new information. Is this how it will end, without a trace, and chasing pieces of junk?
MH370: Chinese satellite detects image off the Southern Corridor
Updated: March 22, 2014

SEPANG: The Chinese government on Saturday revealed that their satellite had detected an image measuring 22 metres long and 13 metres wide off the Southern Corridor.

This information was announced by acting Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein during a press conference held at the Sama-Sama Hotel here on Saturday, after receiving a mote from the Chinese ambassador to Malaysia, Huang Huikang.

“The Chinese ambassador has said that a detailed information of the location of the image will be informed in several hours, if it is related to the MH370 aircraft,” said Hishammuddin.

The image was recorded at 2pm on March 18.

MAS chief confirms investigators chasing MH370 pilot’s cockpit phone call
By Pathma Subramaniam - March 21, 2014

SEPANG, March 21 — An international investigation has started on a phone call made from the cockpit of the Malaysia Airlines aircraft by its pilot before Flight MH370 took off on March 8, Malaysia Airlines chief executive Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said today.

Citing unnamed sources, UK tabloid The Sun reported an international team is trying to find the identity of person who had conversed over the phone with Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah from the cockpit scant minutes before Flight MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 12.41am, two weeks ago.

I bet the TSA has known all along about this phone call,

whom he was talking to and word for word what they talked about. TSA has no doubt looked into all phone calls for additional information in this case. Isn't that what TSA does, records calls from all over the world? Our government is not going to tell us anything. They will continue to keep all information to themselves. We need another whistle blower to reveal what is going on here.
