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.

These posters bring the plane disappearance back to reality.

These posters say it all:
Michael Scoffield • 3 days ago

So the military are spending billions on developing stealth fighters that don't show up on radars, but a giant regular plane was not detected by the radars of the nations it flew through. Than maybe stealth technology is useless since any aircraft can pass continents without anyone detecting it.

Julie Russon / Michael Scoffield • 2 days ago

My thoughts exactly....I suddenly feel very unsafe...Knowing how easy it would be for a military plane loaded with bombs to fly around the skies undetected. I ain't buying this we don't know where it is theory. Its Targ manure.

Michael Scoffield / Julie Russon • 2 days ago

Exactly right ! I would be impossible to go through the airspace of several countries, with military radars detecting a big, unidentified object, without any measure taken.

Here is a satellite image of the object. It coud be anything.

After three hours of intense searching, the Australians returned back to base for the day without anything further to report. They will resume again tomorrow.

Satellite sighting report.

There's been a satellite sighting report of wreckage 2500K's SW off the coast of Western Australia in the South Indian Ocean. Search vessels are being diverted to that area now.
Two large pieces of wreckage observed, one approx. 20 feet in length.

At this point, anything is possible. Thanks. I'm following developments on a blog site here:

"I have no doubt there are MUCH more detailed images that haven't been released. It's not possible the Australians would make this big of a fuss based upon what they released to the public. No way."

"Agreed. I have been able to read the name of a soldier in a moving jeep in White Sands from a satellite feed we set up for monitoring."

Four military search planes were dispatched Thursday to try to determine whether two large objects bobbing in a remote part of the Indian Ocean were part of a possible debris field of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight.

One of the objects spotted by satellite imagery had a dimension of 24 meters (almost 80 feet) and the other one was smaller. There could be other objects in waters nearby in the area that's a four-hour flight from Australia's southwestern coast, said John Young, manager of Australian Maritime Safety Authority's emergency response division.

"This is a lead, it's probably the best lead we have right now," said Young, while cautioning that the objects could also be seaborne debris along a shipping route where containers can fall off cargo vessels.

DG has 24/7 eyes w/access to geosynchronous satellites.

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."

You can bet Hollywood is working on a movie right now, just wait

ing for the end before they can finish it. It would really be a great gesture if they gave a percentage to the families for their loss and grief. I pray that they are still alive and can be reunited with their families. And if that is not to be, than at the very least that they know what happened so they can have closure.

Why practice landings on a runway 3 X longer than needed?

With 18,000 hours flying time, wouldn't this pilot feel confident enough to be able to land his 777 on a 4,200 meter long runway without any practice? What's the point? Just asking.
---------------------------------------------
According to Boeing’s specifications for 777 aircraft (pdf, pg. 16), the plane would need between approximately 1,160 to 1,600 meters (3,800 and 5,200 feet) to land at sea level, depending on its weight at the time:

Flight Plans And Transponders ! Please read the whole post.

Every flight," except" for a local take off and landing practice flight. Every plane must file a flight plan. Especially if the are going to enter another countries air space.
A transponder is a device that identifies a plane on a radar set.
A big plane, such as a Boeing 777, would be big enough that it would show up on a radar scope without the transponder working.

Diago Garcia is a military base/site that may house Nuclear weapons. D.G. would have radar working even from anchored ships to make sure nobody is sneaking in to their facility, just as any military base since the time of the Romans tries to protect itself from sneak attacks.

Therefore, it is my suspicion that any thing within 500 or more miles of Diago Garcia including unknown ships or big airplanes, would somehow communicate with Diago Garcia well before they approached the island.
Diago Garcia may even have the capabilities to fly or control a plane already in flight, such as the missing plane in question. They also have hangers big enough to hide a Boeing 777 from any overhead spying.

Why do I say this? Because if an "unknown" big plane was heading for the island it would be intercepted, or shot down, before it got too close, just in case it really was nuclear.

beesting

If for whatever reason this plane did go to Diego Garcia...

...I doubt we'll ever be told.

In fact I think this is a dead story.

They're never going to find that plane.

But the why's of the situation are the real head scratcher.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

The question we should be

The question we should be asking is...

Is there really a missing plane???

yes--there was a plane

The evidence is overwhelming that there was a plane...hundreds of legitimate family members & friends of the passengers recounting watching their loved one get on the plane and watching the plane take off...records of air traffic controllers from various countries tracking the plane's radar...sadly, here in this country there have been situations where the question of " did this event even happen" is understandable...but this question does not apply with the Maylasian flight due to the sheer magnitude of witnesses, from various cultures, countries, socioeconomic classes and GOVERNMENTS...

Look, I have no doubt that the U.S. Gov't is as crooked and deceitful as they get...at the same time I also find it hard to believe that the same Gov't. is capable of masterminding a
cover-up that includes at least a half dozen nations on the other side of the globe, not to mention the multiple
witnesses of having seen the plane flying low on the night of the disappearance.

The U.S. Gov't. is very cunning and powerful AND YET at
the same time INEPT and stupid. There is NO WAY they can pull off a multi-national masquerade as this!

The plane exists.
The plane is missing.

So, what would be the purpose of having a missing plane
that DOESN'T exist?

Even more importantly, what would be the purpose of having a missing plane that DOES exist?

The question is...WHERE is the plane, WHO hijacked the plane, WHY was the plane hijacked, WHAT is the plan?

I don't believe that the Chinese also have crisis actors.

We do, but not them ....yet. The families/loved ones must have been at the airport. They saw them get on the plane, and it took off.

Why would "they"

leave any evidence on the pilots computer?

SteveMT's picture

I've been thinking about that "why" of your question.

Here are some possibilities:

1. A coincidence meaning nothing. Flying was not only this pilot's job, it was his hobby. He loved it with 30 years in the air. This guy was so thorough and prepared that he wanted to be familiar with every runway in the region including not only commercial, but also non-commercial airfields. He wanted to always be prepared for every contingency or emergency, so he practiced for any possible scenario.
2. He was practicing for something diabolical like a hijacking and a DG landing as part of the plan. He thought that having five simulations would to enough to camouflage and distract away from the DG landing program. He didn't think it would matter.
3. The NWO cannot do anything without leaving a calling-card after the fact or telling us something is going to happen before the fact. It's some kind of a 'code of conduct' that they must follow. The DG approach simulation was this required evidence to be left behind.
4. With this pilot's ulterior motives and knowledge of Western thinking, he knew that we would get so focused upon the DG approach simulation that he actually landed at one of the other four runways.
5. The pilot was a double agent. He agreed to hijack the plane with the help of our government, but he also wanted to screw the US in the process. Perhaps he already knew that he was going to be killed when his job was over anyway, like the Navy Seals were. He purposefully left the files on his simulator knowing that eventually all other possibilities would be excluded except DG.

It's a set up for sure.

It's a set up for sure. Question is why they would leave any sort of evidence that would leave speculation about DG? Normally they would use the set up to steer speculation in another direction. At this point nothing makes any sense. Too much speculation.

so true

Sure would be refreshing to hear that there is actually a Gov't that would say..."no thanks America, we got this covered, we actually DO want to know the truth and will not stop until we find it".

Sigh.

well great, the FBI *examining* captain's simulator now

"The FBI's role in examining the simulator was confirmed to ABC News by a U.S. official hours after Malaysian officials told a news conference that the veteran pilot had deleted files from the simulator and investigators were trying to determine what had been erased....They will also look for "Any indication that the simulator could practice anything untoward like practicing landing on small islands in the ocean," Nance said."

Boy, amazing how the Malaysia Gov't is so quick to hand over the simulator to the FBI.

They dont need the FBI to look for deleted files - just pop in

a live Linux cd - that will find most of them - hell could have gotten any number of people in India to tell them that. LOL

And I have to wonder about this quote:
They will also look for "Any indication that the simulator could practice anything untoward like practicing landing on small islands in the ocean," Nance said."

I know nothing about flying a plane - but it seems to me you could practice landing on any runway and apply that skill to any other runway - would you really need to have the exact island in the simulator. Wouldn't you just need to know how long the runway was - and what approach you would need to take - then just "practice" landing on that approach and stopping the plane in the allotted amount of runway. I mean - its not like osha is going to be testing you - just figure out how to stop the damn plane in the given amount of footage and walla - you are good to go.

I just read a few hours ago

7:17 am

Malaysia today rejected criticism from U.S. government officials that it has not been sharing as much information as it could with foreign governments about the disappearance of flight MH370.

Two U.S. security officials said yesterday that the Malaysia had still not invited the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to send a team to Kuala Lumpur to assist in the probe into the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

"I have been working with them," Malaysia's Defence and Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said when asked if the country had requested FBI help.

"It's up for the FBI to tell us if they need more experts to help because it's not for us to know what they have."

While Malaysia's police special branch has been providing some information to U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies, U.S. sources said, the FBI is only collaborating with Malaysian authorities via an agent, known as a "legal attache", assigned to the American Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

The FBI and other U.S. law enforcement agencies, such as elements of the Department of Homeland Security, indicated some time ago they were eager to send teams to Kuala Lumpur, but will not do so unless formally invited.

Asked if any FBI staff had travelled from outside Malaysia, Hishammuddin said: "Once I have spoken to one FBI representative, I assume the whole FBI would be behind it."

The FBI has extensive experience in investigating plane crashes, including the crashes off the U.S. east coast of TWA 800 and Egyptair 990.

In the case of Egyptair 990, the FBI helped air safety investigators establish that the crash was caused by a suicidal co-pilot.

In the TWA 800 case, the FBI conducted a lengthy investigation that eventually helped the National Transportation Safety Board discredit theories that the plane was hit by a missile, but instead was brought down by a freak accident involving overheated fuel.

CBS: Expert Believes Missing Plane Being Held For Ransom? 3-19

I believe this expert is a government-trained troll. However, his last statement is correct: It takes a great deal of coordination to hide a plane.

Expert Believes Missing Malaysian Airlines Flight Being Held For Ransom
March 19, 2014 12:56 PM
-------------------
“You want to most likely hide the plane so that it will not be seen and get these people away from there. You want a place to prove life, confirm the fact that they are alive without giving away their location,” Mathews told CBSDC, adding that this was an “internal hijacking” that might have been perpetrated by one or more members of the crew.

Mathews feels the hijackers will go public “anytime now” because the weight of the world and governments will be on them.

“If they are ransoming, they want to get away with this,” Mathews explained. “They are not doing this as a suicidal play, they want to make use of this. They want to make sure they have a place for themselves.”

Mathews believes whoever took the plane had an air strip prepared for landing and camouflage as to not be caught by satellites.

“It takes a great deal of coordination to hide a plane,” he said.

Malaysia discounts possible missing plane sighting in Maldives
Published: Wednesday, 19 Mar 2014 | 6:16 AM ET

Investigators probing the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner with 239 people on board have discounted reports the plane may have been sighted over the Maldives, Malaysia's Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said.

Several residents of Kudahuvadhoo, one of the more remote a tolls in the Indian Ocean island chain nation, had reported seeing a low-flying aircraft on the morning of March 8, when Flight MH370 disappeared enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Hishammuddin told a daily news conference on Wednesday that the reports had been investigated by police in the Maldives and were determined to be untrue.

Nothing should be discounted?

As in maylasia's government being part of an inside job using the plane for political purposes to push for their global agenda (or do you think mayalsia is a bunch of dumb ucks, or just a nation of PEACE and PROSPERITY who aren't that inclined?).

SteveMT's picture

As in Malaysia's government has lost all credibility.

They have been wrong too many times already. Their story has changed about this missing plane too many times, like our story has changed too many times about 9/11, Benghazi, and Sandy Hook. What Malaysia has reported to date has led many countries on a wild goose chase amounting to nothing. Yet, they are still very quick to discount apparent eyewitness accounts of seeing a low flying jumbo jet.

because

They are involved. They KNOW where that plane went.

I think the US knows where

I think the US knows where the plane is. That is why we are not searching anymore. Wether or not we were involved remains a mystery.

I don't

believe we are involved. Strategically, while Putin is claiming ports in the Northern hemisphere that threaten life as we know it in the UK and US.. how fortunate that this plane would disapear from Malaysia, the southern hemispher, at this time for Putin. US is stretched and he knows it. And this talk about Deigo Garcia is because Obama intends to drop the lease.. so he needs Americans to "protest" Deigo Garcia.. close the base, and if there's an attack.. it's not the US government's fault.. they only are doing what the people wanted...

Don't think America

will give up Diego Garcia.

DG is in a very strategic location for various purposes.

Obama doesn't have the clout to unilaterally close it.

Our family's journey from the Rocket City to the Redoubt: www.suburbiatosimplicity.com

The lease is up

Obama has been cutting back military spending, troops, occupations.. and with the NWO I don't see any reason the USA will hold it, afterall, it is the PTB who have the US population tired of war, being broke, and thinking that ending military is the solution. So they American people will get their solution, but it won't be what they had hoped in bringing peace and prosperity, but it will bring the exact opposite.

My guess is one day the computer won't go on, and no one will KNOW what's going on.. and this will go into days, and people will talk, and militas will form, and I think most folks won't have a clue when the collapse comes they will be so busy trying to figure out what's going on, like, "When is the military going to come to save us? And there will be no military to come to save them, but there will be a military that is not theirs to remove them to USA Palestine Style FEMA camp.

"The United States and Malaysia enjoy strong security cooperation. Malaysia hosts the Southeast Asia Regional Center for Counterterrorism (SEARCCT), where over 2000 officials from various countries have received training. The United States is among the foreign countries that has collaborated with the center in conducting capacity building programmes.
