They are definitely wearing the exact same clothes as on the official pictures from the airport. But still when someone posts something here, I like to know the source of the information.

Latest Media Release
http://www.malaysiaairlines.com/my/e...dark-site.html


This statement is in reference to the many queries on the alleged five (5) passengers who checked-in but did not board MH370 on 8 March 2014 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing despite having valid tickets to travel.

Malaysia Airlines wishes to clarify that there were four (4) passengers who had valid booking to travel on flight MH370, 8 March 2014, but did not show up to check-in for the flight.

As such, the issue of off-loading unaccompanied baggage did not arise, as the said four passengers did not check in for the flight. Hence, the above claim is untrue.*



Hmmm there the ones that said multiple times that all the baggage was offloaded, so now there saying they never checked in and no bags were loaded? But 24 hours ago they said they offloaded all the bags of the pax, things are not adding up here

the source is far away from here...the photographer has contacted MH and is also in contact with the mother of the lad using the passport to travel to Frankfurt.

The aircraft is fitted with ACARS which is independent to the SSR/ADS-B. Where is that information?

From Reuters

Quote:
Malaysia military tracked missing jet to Strait of Malacca: source

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's military believes it tracked the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country's east coast, a military source told Reuters.

The Strait of Malacca, one of the world's busiest shipping channels, runs along Malaysia's west coast. The airline said on Saturday that the flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew last had contact off the east coast Malaysian town of Kota Bharu.

"It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the military official, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.

A couple of interesting updates on avherald

Quote:
The aircraft has last undergone maintenance on Feb 23rd 2014. All Malaysia Airlines aircraft are equipped with ACARS transmitting monitoring data automatically. However, no distress call and no information was relayed
Quote:
On Mar 11th 2014 Malaysia's Air Force reported their primary radar data suggest, the aircraft may have turned west over the Gulf of Thailand at about 1000 meters/3000 feet below the original flight level (editorial note: another possible interpretation could be: at 1000 meters of height compared to 10000 meters original level) and flown past the east coast near Khota Baru and the west coast of Malaysia near Kedah, the radar return was last seen at 02:40L near Pulau Perak in the Straits of Malacca, about 285nm westsouthwest of the last known (secondary) radar position. Local Police at Khota Bharu confirmed a number of locals reported lights and a low flying aircraft at Khota Bharu at an estimated height of 1000 meters/3000 feet.

I'm expecting an imminent announcement. Lot's of cover ups in this whole thing, the truth is about to come out.

The pic has been floating around the internet on various sites. BBC and CNN have their own version now with two of the faces blurred out. But some originals are below:

Scroll down a bit for the pic:

See/read the original note that went along with the pic that has now since been blurred by CNN:

The longer the story goes on, the longer the press will "beat" the story up. They will attempt to find "aviation experts" who will tell them what they want to hear. Bombs, terror, hijack, crew ....

You would of noticed that the story is no longer lead story on last nights news. No new vision no new clues.

Again they need to find any angle they can get on the story. You can only interview the victims relatives so many times.

ATSB director was on the ABC midday news and he said that he wouldn't speculate on what has happened. You can imagine how that goes down at some news services.

Expect some weird/fantasy stories the longer that the story runs.
