How can a jet plane disappear in 2014?

By: Salma Tantawi

It’s the mystery that has baffled people around the world; a plane that disappeared with no information, news or findings for more than two weeks.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a Boeing 777, one of the safest models, took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport heading to Beijing on March 8 2014. An hour later, it disappeared off the radar screens, triggering high-tech search involving 26 nations, including India, Pakistan, China and US bases.

The question here is how an airplane carrying 239 people can disappear for that long in the age of technology and with high-end satellites all over the world looking for it to no avail. How did the world fail to track a 272-ton jumbo jet?

With few clicks on your computer you can track your lost phone or car, discover faraway lands, the world’s intelligent services can watch and listens to millions of people. You can imagine how frustrating it is for passenger’s families to not have an answer to where the plane went.

The whole episode has been goofed up. Why couldn't the Malaysian authorities raised the flag when they saw the transponder being switched off and plane veering off

Remember 9/11? Untrained pilots flew similar planes. Hit WTC and Pentagon. We believed them. Now they say ONLY trained pilots can fly these planes. Again we believe them. We have no option!

I think the airplane has been crashed in Indian ocean with low speed so none of the wreckage has been found .

If the airplane was heading North East, then why in heavens the entire search’s been done in the South East? Could it possibly be interference from the HAARP program stationed in Harold E. Holt communication station of the Western Cost of Australia?

The American theory of Hijacking the plane and taking it into Northern area of Pakistan is laughable. This is the agency that boasts itself of the best in the world or is it just Lip service by the Americans is what we know now.
