There's a lot of rubbish being talked about the missing Malaysian airliner. The theories grow increasingly bizarre with every hour passing, and for every voice of reason pointing out that North Korea's missile tests are closely observed by multiple nations and are conducted a very long way from Malaysia, there are several convinced they have found the reason.  Or aliens, or camera batteries or cellphones not in flight mode.

the circumstantial evidence is compelling, at least to me. The latest information released by Inmarsat and reposted (link below) gives a rough course of the missing airliner and their calculations. There is also news of a final transmission from the aircraft, a "partial ping" eight minutes after the routine "handshake ping".  So far unconfirmed, it is said to provide information that: 1. Both engines had "flamed out". 2. The emergency generator had been deployed. 3. Satellite comms restartin

Here's the latest on the missing Malaysian Airlines flight. We have a timeline of events - without speculation, just the facts known. And we have some speculation from a professional pilot.  The hard part about speculation is making the theory fit the facts. It's one thing to come up with something really colourful and exciting, such as a meteor strike or a hijacking, another to avoid some inconvenient fact that destroys a crucial part of the theory.

Yes and yes. I've been reading an intriguing article (link below), complete with maps and diagrams, about how it could have been done, by someone who seems to have all their technical ducks in a row. Certainly it hasn't yet been debunked on PPRuNe, which usually occurs within about five minutes of any half-baked theory being put forward.  What this all means is another question, one so far unanswered, but I'm sure the answer won't be good. Nothing about this whole affair is good.

Still thinking about this missing airliner. It may well be that one of the superpowers knows where it is. Over the past week we've seen a lot of coy talk about military radars and stuff. Very likely some governments know a lot more than they are letting on, but don't want to say too much because it would give away their ability to find out other things.

A friend of mine wonders why, if they can read car numberplates from orbit, they can't find this missing airliner.  It's one thing to look at cars on a road. It's another when you don't even know where the road is.

The Denied Boarding Regulation covers those flying with either an EU-based airline or from an EU airport.

I'm listening to the latest Malaysian media conference on the disappearance of flight MH370 a week ago.  I'm not hearing much new, but then again, a lot of it is not in English, and what is, is delivered with accents.   Couple this with my keen reading of the "Professional Pilots Rumour Network", and I'm getting a feel for what's going on.

The searchers in the most likely areas have come up with nothing - and those conducting the searches are understandably annoyed at what now seems like a massive bungle - and all we have are rumours.  Well, here's another one. I'm listening to an interview given by Andy Pasztor, aviation reporter from the Wall Street Journal. One of the few mainstream media journalists holding much credibility with the sort of professional pilots I've been watching.
