MH370: Stop Looking in the Wrong Place

Date February 2, 2019; update April 27, 2019.

At least 20 pieces of wreckage from MH370 have been found around Reunion (near Mauritius) and Madagascar. They were found by an American lawyer, Blaine Gibson. One of his associates was assassinated, and Blaine has since received death threats; someone does not want him to find more. That someone, I suggest, is whoever hijacked MH370 - most likely the CIA.

The official theory is that MH370 went down off Western Australia, and that the pieces floated across the ocean over to Africa.

It's much more likely that MH370 went down in the area where pieces have been found. This would mean that MH370 headed west, towards Diego Garcia.

To go beyond Diego Garcia, MH370 would have needed to refuel. I suggest that it landed and refuelled at Male, Maldives about 3.20am, and departed by 5.45am; this matches the sightings at Kudahuvadhoo at 6.15am.

Passengers & cargo of interest to the CIA would have been removed, and transferred to Diego Garcia by small plane or boat.

MH370 would then have passed near Diego Garcia, but would not have landed there, because it was daylight by that time, and no hangar on Diego Garcia is big enough to hide a Boeing 777; its tail is too high. Instead, it would have continued towards Reunion, and been dumped there, disintegrating when it hit the water at speed.

Forget pilot suicide theories. If the pilot(s) wanted to suicide, why fly for 5 hours or more?

A conspiracy is involved. Authorities do not want to find MH370.

Those of us who think thus, also believe that JFK was murdered by the CIA; and that 911 was a Mossad job. Doubters should study Operation Northwoods: Northwoods.html .

Intelligence agencies operate as a Deep State in defiance of elected Governments.

If this be the case with MH370, then the official investigation does NOT want to find the plane; they insist on searching in the wrong area.

But if we DO want to solve this case, we need to search the ocean between Diego Garcia and Mauritius / Madagascar. ==

Acoustic Data

There have been several papers on locating MH370 by acoustic data from underwater hydrophones. These devices are use to monitor nuclear tests, and are operated by the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO). There are three such detectors at Diego Garcia, station HA08s.

Media reports on the acoustic data are:

Effect of sea-bottom elasticity on the propagation of acoustic­gravity waves from impacting objects

The author notes, in the above paper:

"Last but not least, a fifth signal appears at 3:07 (see Fig. 5). This signal probably indicates restarting the system after it was shutdown for 25 minutes, i.e. there is a missing data in these specific CTBTO recordings. [...] The locations of signals found on HA08s are with high uncertainty or unknown and require further analysis. Though, if related to MH370 that might suggest a location in the northern part of the Indian Ocean. Due to the sensitivity of the recorded data, it is unlikely that the three hydrophones on HA08s had a simultaneous technical failure and the reason behind the shut down is to-date unknown. The missing data might be related to the military action in the area (during or after the impact), but another argument is that a violent nearby activity (including impact, explosion) could have resulted in a shutdown of the system. Both the signal HA_30 of bearing 247° recorded at 11:57 on March 7th, and the missing data if related to MH370 could (independently) suggest that the impact location is closer to Diego Garcia's station, as opposed to Cape Leeuwin's station."

The text at Figure 5 says, "Figure 5. Raw data recorded by all three hydrophones of HA08s. The sharp signal indicates restarting the system after 25 minutes of missing data on all three hydrophones starting from 3:07 UTC."

Note that the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO), which operates the hydrophones, has been unable to explain the 25-minute shutdown.

I propose that the centrepoint of the 25-minute shutdown, 3.20 UTC (which is 9.20 Diego Garcia time) is the time MH370 crashed into the ocean; and that those behind the hijacking got the three hydrophones switched off to hide the event.

Also see my paper on matching the Acoustic data with the Maldives sightings: MH370-crashed-near-Reunion.doc .

(Feb 2, 2019): MH370 is back in the news, with reports that it probably crashed near Madagascar, based on data from underwater microphones:
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-31/mh370-underwater-microphones-suggest-alternate-crash-site/10767550

The Acoustic Source is close to the area where Blaine Gibson has found debris. The Acoustic Source is shown on the map at https://images.theconversation.com/files/256064/original/file-20190129-108355-1rtdb1g.JPG

Station HA08 is at Diego Garcia. The acoustic source is shown between there and Madagascar.

I also uploaded the map of the acoustic source to MH370-Acoustic-source.jpg.

Blaine Gibson was reported in May 2018 as stating that STALKING, death threats and even assassination are being used to stop his work:

"In an interview with The West Australian, Gibson, who is said to have found more than half of the debris that has been discovered of the ill-fated jet, said his own search was subjected to intimidation, stalking, death threats, defamation and assassination.

"For whatever reasons, some people are very upset that I and other private citizens are finding pieces of the plane," he told the newspaper." https://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-updates/incidents/us-wreck-hunter-blaine-gibson-claims-stalking-death-threats-and-assassination-prevent-mh370-mystery-being-solved/news-story/96cbc9d7e676ba364cd32a62d3726f70

Earlier in January 2018, he found debris that, he said, disproves the pilot suicide theory.

"He said the wing flap was found to be retracted and not deployed for landing, indicating that there was no controlled glide." https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2018/01/21/mh370-wreck-hunter-says-debris-found-disproves-pilot-suicide-theory/

That MH370 crashed in the vicinity of Mauritius or Madagascar has occurred to other investigators too, but it does not fit the Inmarsat data, so has usually been discarded.

For the same reason, eyewitness reports, by multiple witnesses, of a plane matching MH370 in the Maldives on the day it disappeared, were dismissed by the official bodies, and the witnesses ridiculed. Investigators chose to spend close to $200 million on undersea searches in the wrong area, rather than spend $20,000 interviewing those witnesses in the Maldives.

Here is a map of the Maldives. At Huvadhoo atoll, south of Male, also called Kuda Huvadhoo, there were multiple reported sightings of MH370 on March 8, 2014: Maldives.jpg

Blaine Gibson DID interview those eyewitnesses, and published his account at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B35tmLZHg1FES0l4ZlFnYWd1bE0/view .

IBM employee Philip Wood allegedly sent an i-Phone message from Diego Garcia to his fiance Sarah Bajc, a business executive in Beijing, saying that MH370 had been hijacked.

Blaine Gibson found many pieces of MH370 wreckage around Madagascar, Mauritius, Rodrigues Island, and the east coast of Africa. But he was loath to accept that it might have been an Inside Job, so for years he kept trying to fit his data with the official theory.

Researchers with a 'conspiracy' mindset are not so deceived. Those who are aware of the evidence that JFK was killed by the Deep State, and that 911 was an inside job, probably by Mossad with CIA complicity, are quick to assess the disappearance of MH370 as an inside job by an intelligence agency.

Most likely it was electronically hijacked by the CIA, and flown by computer as a drone. Those familiar with Operation Northwoods guess that were two identical planes, one being a decoy to keep the search focused on the wrong area, while the real MH370 headed for the CIA base at Diego Garcia, either directly or via the Maldives.

As for the reason for the hijacking, that seems to be to prevent technology-transfer to China - either cargo on its way to China, or the 20 Freescale engineers en route from Malaysia to China. Details of the cargo in the hold have not been released.

Blocking the transfer of military technology to China would be a concern of the CIA, rather than Mossad, and in keeping with the Pentagon's Air-Sea Battle plan.

Mossad's only credible motive would be the diversion of military technology to Israel instead of China. But Ken St Aubin suggests that Mossad helped out by supplying a decoy plane, a Boeing 777 which Israel had bought from Malaysia Airlines; it had been sighted at a hangar in Israel prior to the hijacking:
https://thehuntformh370.info/content/was-disappearance-mh370-cia-false-flag-operation-0

Suppose that the CIA could not prevent the equipment being loaded onto MH370. An open attack on he plane would have been seen as an act of war. Stealth methods would have achieved the desired result without risking a diplomatic disaster.

Emirates head Tim Clark told Der Spiegel that MH370 had been hijacked - but he wasn't buying the idea that this had been done by one of the pilots. He said that the plane may not have flown south, that Government agencies were covering up, and warned that "others would like to bury" the truth:

"My own view is that PROBABLY CONTROL WAS TAKEN OF THAT AEROPLANE, the events that happened during the course of its tracked flight will be anybody's guess of who did what and when. I think we need to know who was on this aeroplane in the detail that obviously SOME PEOPLE DO KNOW, WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT WAS IN THE HOLD OF THE AEROPLANE, in the detail we need to know, in a transparent manner. And we need to continue to press all those stake holders, that were and are involved in the analysis, in the assessment of what happened, for more information. Because heading an airline that operates the largest number of 777s in the world, I have a responsibility of knowing exactly what went on. ... But I will continue to ask the questions and will make a nuisance of myself, when OTHERS WOULD LIKE TO BURY IT, and we have an obligation to the passengers and crew of MH 370 and their families, whose deep distress you see every day. We have an obligation not to brush this under the carpet, but to sort it out and do better than we have done"

Former Proteus Airlines boss Marc Dugain claims MH370 may have been shot down by the US military near Diego Garcia:

Researchers on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 rely heavily on Wikipedia for its assumed neutrality.

Wikipedia has two webpages on MH370, one presenting the official theory, and one presenting unofficial or conspiracy theories; the two link to each other. The official one is at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia_Airlines_Flight_370 .

The unofficial one is at https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia_Airlines_Flight_370_unofficial_disappearance_theories

In the past, the unofficial one, being edited by many people, at times presented incriminating information. However, it no longer does so; it's now written by the same people as the official one. The difference is that, whereas the official one ignores conspiracy theories, the unofficial one seeks to debunk them.

The current Wikipedia webpages, official and unofficial, make no mention of the comments of Emirates CEO Tim Clark, or of Proteus Airlines boss Marc Dugain, or of Philip Wood.

When I checked it on January 28, 2017, and again on February 2, 2019, I found that the unofficial webpage not only omitted the most incriminating evidence, but favorably quoted Cass Sunstein, a leading, government-appointed, debunker of 9/11 and other conspiracy theories. This is what it said:

'Harvard professor Cass Sunstein noted that the conflicting information initially released by the Malaysian government explains the interest in alternative theories. Sunstein, who has written on the topic, argued in an interview with the Wall Street Journal on 20 March 2014 that conspiracy theories in general often are borne out of horrific and disastrous situations, because such events make people angry, fearful and looking for a "target".'

Cass Sunstein, when at Harvard University, authored a paper recommending "Cognitive infiltration" of Dissident groups by Government agents:

Conspiracy Theories, by Cass R. Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule, both of Harvard Law School, January 15, 2008: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1084585

Sunstein was later appointed by Obama to take on this role.

In reply, David Ray Griffin wrote a book Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory: http://www.amazon.com/Cognitive-Infiltration-Appointees-Undermine-Conspiracy/dp/1566568218 .

MH370 kept flying for 5 or more hours after its last known location, proving that mechanical failure and fire were not the problem.

If the pilot had planned to suicide, he would not have bothered to fly so far; so that can be ruled out. As for his practice landings at Indian Ocean airports, on his simulator, that is not unusual; flights are sometimes diverted by bad weather. It does not indicate malice on his part. The media beatup such stories, but failed to ask hard questions of government spokesmen, eg, Why wasn't MH370 picked up on the US military radars at Singapore and Diego Garcia? Why not interview the witnesses in the Maldives? Why not release the full cargo manifest for MH370?

Henry Balfour <henry@404.co.nz> informs me that Diego Garcia has "Aussie Jindalee over-the-horizon radar, or the equivalent .... these powerful long-range radars are a part of an early warning layer that is NEVER TURNED OFF ... but when I ask the Aussie Defence people for clarity they told me it was "not switched on at that time" I will let you judge the reason that I don't believe them The Jindalee system would have 'seen' MH370 entering its scan zone."

The US military bases around Singapore and the Strait of Malacca would also have such radar; yet the media failed to press such questions, instead pursuing 'pilot suicide'.

The Transponder and ACARS of MH370 were turned off, proving conspiracy of some kind. Either by one of the pilots, or by an intelligence agency taking control of the plane and flying it remotely like a drone.

After being turned off, the ACARS unit was unable to send data, but was still able to do handshakes with the Inmarsat satellite.

After its diversion, and without radar protection, the plane first flew high, to avoid collision with other planes, then flew low to avoid radar, as it doubled back and flew west over Malaysia. It hugged the borders between countries, possibly to keep changing the jurisdiction it was in, and successfully dodged mountains, suggesting computer control.

The co-pilot attempted to make a distress call from his mobile phone, as the plane neared the Penang mobile system towers at low altitude.

The Daily Mail reported, "The co-pilot of missing flight MH370 made a call from his mobile phone while the aircraft flew low over the west coast of Malaysia, it was revealed today as the U.S. denied reports the plane landed at a military base on the remote island of Diego Garcia. Investigators have learned that the call was made from Fariq Abdul Hamid's mobile phone as the Boeing 777 flew low near the island of Penang, on the north of Malaysia's west coast. The New Straits Times reported the aircraft, with 239 people on board, was flying low enough for the nearest telecommunications tower to pick up Fariq's signal. The call ended abrupty, however it has been learned that contact was definitely established with a telecommunications sub-station in Penang state. The paper said it had been unable to ascertain who Fariq was trying to call 'as sources chose not to divulge details of the investigation.' It added: 'The telco's (telecommunications company's) tower established the call that he was trying to make. 'On why the call was cut off, it was likely because the aircraft was fast moving away from the tower and had not come under the coverage of the next one,' the paper said, quoting 'sources'.":

In the early days of the search, station WNYC published a map showing 634 runways MH370 could have landed on without refueling, based on its last location detected by primary radar, which is half-way between Banda Aceh at the tip of Sumatra, and Phuket on the Thailand coast, at 2.22am Malaysia time.

The 634 runways MH370 could have reached without refueling are at: MH370-634-runways.png.

The 3 isolated dots (runways) at the south-west of the map are (from north to south), Male, Gan (both in the Maldives), and Diego Garcia.

The report from Sydney Morning Herald: http://www.smh.com.au/world/missing-malaysia-airlines-plane-mh370-had-choice-of-634-runways-to-land-on-20140317-hvjmh.html

The WNYC original is at https://project.wnyc.org/runways/

My sketch showing the probable route of MH370 is at: MH370-Male-DG.jpg .

People looking for debris would have been looking within the circle of 634 airports. If it had crashed at sea, there would have been a huge debris field. Given the worldwide interest, the debris would have been spotted. It wasn't - not within that circle - so the plane landed somewhere. It would have either been stored in a hangar, or refuelled and then dumped further afield, for example between Diego Garcia and Mauritius.

Some say Diego Garcia is the most likely location. There were no scheduled flights from Diego Garcia airport on March 8-10, 2014; flights resumed on March 11:
https://beforeitsnews.com/v3/global-unrest/2014/2458394.html

I uploaded that flight board as follows:

Board from Diego Garcia airport: no flights from March 8 to 10, 2014: DG-140308-no-flights.JPG

Landing at Diego Garcia could not be done without approval of the US Military. Hijacking by the Captain or co-pilot is unlikely, because they would still have needed permission to land at Diego Garcia. No demands or ultimatums were presented to Malaysian authorities, of the type "do this or else", and there are more pleasant ways to commit suicide.

Which leaves the CIA as the most likely culprit; Mossad being the other possibility. Israeli submarines use Diego Garcia as a base.

One might surmise that the intelligence agency behind the hijack (CIA or Mossad) could have stored MH370 in a hangar on Diego Garcia, and disposed of it later, after it faded from public attention.

After I did a radio interview on Tony Gosling's radio program in 2017, I received an email from Ann Diener <raven_knight@sbcglobal.net>, as follows:

"I have a friend who was stationed on Diego Garcia. This is her response to the Diego Garcia portion.

"Diego Garcia theory - there is no hanger to hide a jet that large on the island. There aren't regular schedule flights because there are only 3/4 flights a month that come and go. 2 of those flights are every 2 weeks, 1 flight is once a week and the other flight is once a month."

Following up, I then investigated the hangars on Diego Garcia. The Boeing 777 is much larger than military jets; in particular, its tail is too high for the hangars on Diego Garcia.

The B-2 Shelter System [B2SS], also called Extra Large Deployable Aircraft Hangar Systems, provides hangars 250' wide by 60' high on Diego Garcia: http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/aircraft/systems/xldahs.htm

But the tail of the 777 is 60 ft 9 in high: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_777.

It follows that MH370 could not have remained on Diego Garcia during daylight hours. Although there were no flights scheduled from March 8 to 10, and workers may have been deployed offshore on a naval exercise, the risk of someone seeing MH370 there and later blabbing would be too great, whatever the penalties.

Next, I investigated the times of reported sightings of MH370 in the Maldives, and sunrise there and on Diego Garcia.

MH370 was last tracked by military radar near Banda Aceh at 2:22am Malaysia Time.

See the map at https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3c/MH370_initial_search_Southeast_Asia.svg

Then there were multiple sightings by witnesses at Kuda Huvadhoo in the Maldives, about 6.15am Maldives time. These sightings matched the description of MH370.

Suppose that from Banda Aceh, MH370 went west instead of south. Perhaps a decoy plane went south, as suggested by captain Field McConnell. A decoy plane was part of Operation Northwoods.

From that waypoint near Banda Aceh to the Maldives is 4 hours' flying time, which means that if MH370 went west, it would have arrived there about 6.20am Malaysia Time (UTC+8), which is 3.20am Maldives time (UTC+5).

Yet the sightings at Kuda Huvadoo atoll were about 6.15am Maldives time. This would require that MH370 have landed somewhere. And if it landed, it would have refuelled.

The witnesses said it came from the north-west, and headed south towards Diego Garcia. But Malaysia is to the east. Why was the plane coming from the wrong direction?

Kuda Huvadhoo is in the southern Maldives - south of Male, but north of Gan.

Blaine Gibson's sketch of the path of the plane sighted at Kuda Huvadhoo is at: Kudahuvadhoo-turn.png

I think that MH370 landed at Male or Maamigili in the Maldives, about 3.20am Maldives time, and took off by 5.45am.

Both of these are international airports, with runways long enough for a Boeing 777.

Male International Airport is also called Velana International Airport; it has a 3000m runway, and routinely takes Boeing 777s.

Maamigili is about 108km to the west of Male. Its airport is called Villa International Airport. The runway is 1800m, just sufficient for a 777; Leeds airport (LBA) is 1800m, and takes 777s. Maamigili is a quieter airport than Male, but the runway is less secluded from domestic buildings.

Thimarafushi, on the other hand, is too short.

China has a long-term lease on Hambantota port in Sri Lanka, has built many engineering projects in Mauritius, and has been courting the Maldives government; Male International Airport was recently upgraded by a Chinese company.

Such intrusion alarmed the US. In 2013, the US proposed a "lily pad" military base in the Maldives:

US seeks military presence in Maldives

April 26, 2013 M K Bhadrakumar

The intriguing 'leak' of a draft Status of Forces Agreement [SOFA] between the United States and the Maldivian government has led to reluctant confirmation by both countries that they are indeed involved in discussion with each other to conclude such an agreement. ...

{endquote} The draft SOFA is at http://www.dhivehisitee.com/images/US-Maldives-SOFA-draft.pdf.

But in 2014 the Maldives government rejected the "lily pad" Military Pact with US, because it would upset neighbors India and Sri Lanka: http://www.defensenews.com/article/20140122/DEFREG03/301220025/Maldives-Rejects-Military-Pact-US

Maldives Rejects Military Pact With US

Jan. 22, 2014 - 02:53PM | By AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE

COLOMBO, SRI LANKA - The Maldives has decided not to take part in a proposed military cooperation pact with the United States over fears that it could upset the regional power India, senior officials said Wednesday.

Speaking on a visit to Sri Lanka, the atoll nation's new President Abdulla Yameen said he did not want to proceed with the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) that would have given the US a foothold in his archipelago located across the main east-west sea route.
{endquote}

Nevertheless, the discussions mean that there was close contact between Diego Garcia and the Maldives military.

That liason came in handy in the wake of sightings of MH370. The Maldives National Defence Force dismissed those sightings:

Missing Malaysia Airlines plane: Maldives discounted as possible location for MH370

Sydney Morning Herald, March 19, 2014

Eyewitness reports of a possible sighting of missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 flying near the Maldives have been officially discounted in a statement issued by the Maldives National Defence Force.
{endquote}

If MH370 landed at Male as suggested here, the commander at Diego Garcia would have phoned the Maldives military & got the ok for a job in the night, without having to give any details.

The runway at Male runs north-south. MH370 would have landed from the south, and stayed at the northern end of the runway, instead of taxiing to the terminal near the southern end. It would have been refuelled, and cargo & passengers of interest been transferred to another plane, or a boat, or both. Those other craft would then have gone to Diego Garcia, where they would not have aroused suspicion. Then MH370, flying as a drone, would have headed towards Diego Garcia, but, I believe, not have landed there, because it would have been daylight, and thus too risky. Instead, it would have been dumped between Diego Garcia and Mauritius.

To familiarise yourself with Male airport (Velana InternationalAirport), study the Google Map: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Velana+International+Airport/@4.1887827,73.5285805,14z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x15aa005ed9e5a5a2!8m2!3d4.1887827!4d73.5285805

Here is a youtube of a High Power Take off of an Emirates 777-300er from Male International Airport: hhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0Vu58MTl60

The Emirates Boeing 777 first taxis from the Terminal to the South end of the island; then reverses around, at which point you can see the city of Male on the Left; it's on another island.

Then it takes off towards the North. As the plane lifts off the ground, you see the Terminal on the left (ie West).

Blaine Gibson has published the Arrivals & Departures Boards for Male International Airport on March 8, 2014: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B35tmLZHg1FES0l4ZlFnYWd1bE0/view

I uploaded them as follows:

The Arrivals board at Male (Velana International Airport) for March 8, 2014; supplied by Blaine Gibson: Male-AR-140308.JPG

The Departures board at Male (Velana International Airport) for March 8, 2014; supplied by Blaine Gibson: Male-DP-140308.JPG

There were no scheduled Departures from Male airport between 2.50am and 6am. There were no scheduled Arrivals between 11.05pm and 6.50am. MH370 could have landed about 3.20am Maldives time, and taken off by 5.45am.

That whole time was dark. The moon was at First Quarter. Sunrise was at 6.14am (see https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/maldives/male); first light about 5.35am. At Male, residential areas are a long way from the northern end of the runway.

If the witness sightings at Kuda Huvadhoo are correct, I believe that MH370 would not have landed at Diego Garcia, because it would have been seen (being daylight). Despite "Shut Up or Die" orders, I think that, given the worldwide interest, someone would have blurbed.

Instead of landing there, MH370 would have been flown past Diego Garcia as a drone, and been dumped in the Indian Ocean between Diego Garcia and Mauritius. The closest debris find, on Rodrigues Island, fits that. This area is outside the circle of 634 runways that MH370 could reach without refueling, so no-one would have been looking there. Also, it's very remote.

But there is a credible alternative scenario to the above. Both scenarios need to be seriously considered, until the case is finally solved.

(Feb 11, 2017) Yesterday, I did a Skype video call with Field McConnell, a former US airforce pilot (flew F4s & F16s) and former airline captain (747-400) with Delta Airlines & Northwest airlines. He flew for 31 years, then resigned because he refused an order to shut up over plane hijackings by governments.

He says that the planes were electronically hijacked by intelligence agencies, using technology called "Uninterruptible AutoPilot".

There's a Boeing brand Uninterruptible AutoPilot, and a Thales one.

All modern planes have one; they can be flown remotely as a drone.

The pilot of American 77, which supposedly hit the Pentagon, was a friend of his.

In fact, a missile hit the Pentagon; AA77 was switched and, he says, detonated over the Atlantic Ocean.

This sort of "decoy plane" was first advocated in Operation Northwoods, in 1961. At that time, the Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on it. They wanted to stage a False Flag attack, to be blamed on Cuba, as an excuse to invade it.

But President Kennedy, and Attorney General Robert Kennedy, vetoed it, and sacked the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

(Feb 12, 2017) Field McConnell believes MH370 was hijacked by the CIA and flown to Diego Garcia; he told me that someone in Australia, connected to Boeing, rang him and told him that MH370 landed in Diego Garcia and that the engines were turned off at 6.51am Malaysia time (which is 3.51am Maldives time, 4.51am Diego Garcia time, 10.51pm UTC time). The travel time is feasible if it flew direct, not via the Maldives; it's not compatible with sightings in the Maldives. The plane would have landed in the dark. I believe that in this scenario, it would have taken off before sunrise, after cargo and passengers of interest were unloaded. That way, workers on Diego Garcia would not have seen it.

Diego Garcia is about the same longitude as Male. But whereas the Maldives is UTC+5, Diego Garcia is UTC+6.

On March 8, Sunrise was at 6.14am at Male (see https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/maldives/male), and 7.15am at Diego Garcia (see https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/biot/diego-garcia). First Light is about 40 minutes earlier. The moon was at First Quarter on March 8, 2014.

If Field McConnell's source is correct, CIA & military operatives would have had from 4.51am to 6.35am Diego Garcia time, to refuel the plane and remove passengers and cargo of interest, before it took off by First Light at 6.35am. I believe that it would then have been flown towards Mauritius and been dumped, outside the circle of 634 runways, and far from where anyone was looking. It would have been refuelled, because they wanted to dump it at a place of their choice, not just where it ran out of fuel.

Field McConnell said it's quite possible that the plane tracked off Western Australia was a second plane, a decoy plane. The same happened with 9/11.

He resigned from his airline rather than shut up.

Here is a youtube of Field McConnell (who I Skyped with) addressing a meeting about MH370 and 9/11: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0K-i3Zxb3Q

(Feb 16, 2019) Shortly before the start of the Korean War, Stalin, at Kim Il-Sung's request, gave 100 T-34 tanks to North Korea; these formed the spearhead of its attack. But the Soviet T-34 tank, mass-produced in the Soviet Union, was a Soviet development of a Christie tank sold to the Soviet Union by the United States.

Antony C. Sutton wrote in his book National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union:

"The Soviet T-54 tank is in Vietnam. ... According to the tank handbooks the T-54 has a Christie type suspension. Christie was an American inventor. Where did the Soviets get a Christie suspension? Did they steal it? No, sir! They bought it. They bought it from the U.S. Wheel Track Layer Corporation." (pp. 258-9) sutton.html.

Sutton wrote in Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development 1930 to 1945:

"Walter Christie ... developed the Christie tank - the basis of World War II American tanks. ... Two chassis of the Christie M 1931 model medium tank (MB) were purchased by the Soviet Union in 1932 from the U.S. Wheel Track Layer Corporation. After further development work this became not only the Soviet T-32 (the basic Soviet tank of World War II) but also several other development models in the U.S.S.R. ... The Soviet T-34 and the American M3, both based on the Christie, had the same 12-cylinder aero engine: a V-type Liberty of 338 horsepower ..." (p. 241) sutton.html.

Might similar technology-transfer have happened in the cargo of MH370? China could have STOLEN some hi-tech equipement; or BOUGHT it legally e.g. from Freescale. If legal, it might have contravened laws against dual-purpose technology transfer, but this might not have been enforcable in Malsian courts. Then the CIA found about it, and had to find a way to prevent delivery.

If MH370 was carrying cargo with military use or dual-purpose use (civilian & military), even if labelled differently, was it then a modern-day Lusitania?

In this scenario, Malaysian authorities would be partly liable, for lax supervision, and would not be rushing to release the Cargo Manifest; if they had nothing to fear, they would do so. Chinese authorities would be culpable, if they had stolen or cajoled the technology, repackaged it and labelled it incorrectly.

Culpability would extend to the US Government (Deep State), which hijacked the plane; then to other Governments eg the Australian Government, for their complicity in the cover-up. This would help to explain why Governments are hindering the investigation, keeping it looking in the wrong place, i.e. anywhere but the Maldives and Diego Garcia.

One of the greatest crimes of the century is left to amateur investigators, and to scientists who are not part of the official investigation, to solve. Despite the best efforts of some journalists and editors in the media, the intelligence agencies are likely to have a spook in every newsroom, to stop them from disclosing the government role in the hijacking.

(April 19, 2019): Acoustic Data cf Maldives siightings & Field McConnell's claim

-by Peter Myers, April 19, 2019

Consult the acoustic map at MH370-Acoustic-source.jpg.

The acoustic data detected at station HA08 on Diego Garcia are in two sets: one at 247º (bearing from Diego Garcia) at 23.57, i.e. 11.57pm UTC (5.57am DG time) another at 241º at 1.58am UTC (7.58am DG time).

Diego Garcia is about the same longitude as Male and Kudahuvadhoo; but whereas the Maldives is UTC+5, Diego Garcia is UTC+6.

Is the acoustic data compatible with the Kudahuvadhoo sightings at 6.15am Maldives time?

The site https://www.travelmath.com/ gives the flight time from Kudahuvadhoo to Diego Garcia as 1h 52 m., including 30m for takeoff & landing. If MH370 did not land at DG, but merely flew over, it would have arrived at 7.37am Maldives time, 8.37 DG time, 2.37am UTC. This is too late to match either acoustic signal.

Field McConnell, a former US airforce pilot (F4 & F16) and airline captain (747-400), flew for 31 years, but resigned in protest over - he says - government hijackings of planes.

He says that during 9/11 the planes were remotely hijacked by intelligence agencies, using Uninterruptible AutoPilot. There's a Boeing brand, and a Thales one. The pilot of American 77, which supposedly hit the Pentagon, was a friend of his.

On Feb 10, 2017, I did a Skype video call with him. He told me that MH370 was hijacked by the CIA and flown to Diego Garcia; and that someone in Australia, connected to Boeing, rang him and told him that MH370 landed in Diego Garcia and that the engines were turned off at 6.51am Malaysia time. This is 3.51am Maldives time, 4.51am DG time, 10.51pm UTC.

Since there is no hangar on Diego Garcia big enough for a Boeing 777, because the tail is too high, MH370 would have taken off again before daylight, after passengers & cargo were offloaded. I believe it would then have been remotely flown towards Mauritius/Reunion and dumped.

On March 8, 2014, Sunrise was 6.14am at Male, and 7.15am at Diego Garcia.

Let's see if McConnell's claim fits with the acoustic data.

Flight time from DG to Mauritius is 3h 10m, incl 30 min for takeoff & landing. Obviously MH370 did not land, so this is reduced to 2h 55m. Northern parts of Madagascar are about the same distance as Mauritius.

The 247º path acoustic zone stretches from about 20m flying time from DG, to 1h. from DG, the centre being 40m (plus 15m for takeoff). The acoustic time, 11.57pm UTC (5.57 DG time) is feasible but tight. Taking the centre as our mark, MH370 would have had to leave about 5.17am DG time (11.17 UTC), allowing 11 minutes to offload cargo & passengers. Unlikely, but cannot be ruled out.

The 241º path heads towards the middle of Madagascar. The acoustic zone stretches from about 1h 40m flying time from DG, to 2h 40m from DG, the centre being 2h 10m (plus 15m for takeoff). Taking the centre as our mark, the acoustic time, 1.58am UTC (7.58 DG time) is compatible with McConnell's claim, if MH370 left about 5.33am DG time. This would have allowed 42 minutes to offload cargo & passengers.

I'm not suggesting that we should dump the Maldives sightings and go with the acoustic data. Rather, we should pursue both lines until the case is resolved.

(April 20, 2019): MH370: Acoustic Data cf Maldives sightings & 25 minute shutdown

The report on the acoustic data "MH370 may have crashed near Madagascar, underwater microphones suggest"

at https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-31/mh370-underwater-microphones-suggest-alternate-crash-site/10767550

states, regarding the shutdown:

"Inexplicably, 25 minutes of data from the Diego Garcia station Ñ where the US has a secretive military base Ñ is missing.

"Dr Kadri said the signals his team analysed indicated a 25-minute shutdown that cannot be explained by a technical failure or maintenance, given the three hydrophones operate independently of each other.

"He said the CTBTO has failed to give any reason why the data is missing, though either military action or Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 may have caused the system shutdown."

I have now learned that the 25-minute shutdown began at 3:07 UTC.

Let us now consider the possibility that MH370 crashed during that shutdown; say at the mid-point, 3.20 UTC. (9.20am Diego Garcia time); and that the shutdown may have been staged to conceal that event.

If MH370 had landed at Diego Garcia at 4.51am DG time as Field McConnell says, then unloaded passengers and cargo, then taken off again heading for Mauritius/Reunion, the crash location could be anwhere up to about 3 hours after departing DG. But we require that it have left before sunrise at 7.15am DG time (1.15 UTC). A crash at 3:20 UTC would be quite feasible, thus Field McConnell's scenario is possible.

What of the Maldives sightings (6.15am at Kudahuvadhoo) - are they compatible with this scenario?

MH370 was detected half-way between Banda Aceh at the tip of Sumatra, and Phuket on the Thailand coast, at 2.22am Malaysia time.

From that waypoint to the Maldives is about 4 hours' flying time, which means that if MH370 went west, it would have arrived there about 6.20am Malaysia Time (UTC+8), which is 3.20am Maldives time (UTC+5).

Yet the sightings at Kuda Huvadoo atoll were about 6.15am Maldives time. This would require that MH370 have landed somewhere. And if it landed, it would have refuelled.

The witnesses at Kudahuvadhoo said it came from the north-west, and headed south towards Diego Garcia. But Malaysia is to the east. Why was the plane coming from the wrong direction?

Kuda Huvadhoo is in the southern Maldives - south of Male, but north of Gan.

Blaine Gibson's sketch of the path of the plane sighted at Kuda Huvadhoo is at: Kudahuvadhoo-turn.png

MH370 could have landed at Male or Maamigili in the Maldives, about 3.20am Maldives time, and taken off around 5.45am. The site https://www.travelmath.com gives the flight time from Male to to Kudahuvadhoo as 13 minutes plus 15 minutes for takeoff.

Both Male and Maamigili are international airports, with runways long enough for a Boeing 777.

Male International Airport is also called Velana International Airport; it has a 3000m runway, and routinely takes Boeing 777s. There were no scheduled arrivals or departures at those early hours on March 8, 2014.

MH370 could have touched down at the southern end of the runway, pulled up at the northern end, which is remote from houses and buildings, and unloaded cargo and passengers. They would have been transferred to Diego Garcia by either a small plane, or a boat (the water is close to the runway).

The site https://www.travelmath.com/ gives the flight time from Kudahuvadhoo to Diego Garcia as 1h 52 m., including 30m for takeoff & landing.

But MH370 did not take off from Kudahuvadhoo, and it would not have landed at Diego Garcia because it would have arrived after sunrise. Thus the flight time would be 1h 22m.

If MH370 flew over (or near) DG, it would then have arrived at 7.37am Maldives time, 8.37 DG time, 2.37am UTC. Sunrise being 7.15am DG time.

If it then continued towards Mauritius/Reunion, a crash at 3:20 UTC is quite feasible. This would mean about 43 minutes flight time from Diego Garcia. ==

(April 25, 2019):

Thus a crash during the 25-minute shutdown of the three hydrophones at Diego Garcia is compatible with both scenarios offered here.
