Confusion grows over missing Malaysian Airlines plane - CBS News

Confusion grows over missing Malaysian Airlines plane - CBS News



Looking at information, we can not say facts at this time, there are a number of things that can be said.  One if the plane turned as the Radar track shows, then it would almost have to be under control of the pilot, even an auto pilot would have a hard time holding everything together in that type of turn.  The engines would have to be advanced on a turn like that, it takes up to much air speed.  Then to get it to level off enough to head in a straight line would also be difficult.  Then there is the part about it crossing areas that had airports it could have landed, at, in fact if the military reports are true, virtually over two airports, that should have noticed the flight crossing their airspace.  This quick chart was developed by CTI analysts in DC and show airports that could handle this plane.  So the question is why did not anyone notice it, and if the pilot was still in charge, why did he not attempt a landing.

  1. TrustNoOne...As a former computer security expert with years of experience has NO ONE suspected or considered computer hacker takeover.? Human intervention is so possible yet when everything has proven NOT to be proven with our high tech availabilities then... Maybe governments JUST DON'T WANT US TO KNOW...

  2. Actually the Volpe transportation group, has been trying to get funding to study this growing problem. TSA agrees but can not get funding either. There have been a number of incidents that point to the vulnerability, but most kept out of the press. A jetliner that had been infected, passed it to an airport terminal via wireless, before it even docked. Going the other way is not a big jump.

    At a black hat conference last year a group showed that they could wirelesly gain access to a planes control system, and effect the sensors reading of flight speed, altitude, and yes even the auto pilot controls. Being an old government type myself, l can see them scrambling to see if they missed something. It should be interesting.
