MH370 – Searching The Bay of Bengal was NOT a mistake.
I wanted to post this as a reply to my previous Blog Post: MH370 – What I Think Happened After I Saw It (Do check the replies here, this is where I am adding in links which support my sighting, as I come across them). I can’t attach images in a reply though, and I do want to show you this one:
It’s from an article in the Wall Street Journal back in March, just a few weeks after the aircraft disappeared: Critical Data Was Delayed in Search for Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight
Now, I never really thought about why they were searching the Bay of Bengal – I just assumed it was just a random miscommunication, which so often seems to happen in Asia. But back then, as far as we knew, the aircraft hooked around Bandeh Aceh then headed South, and this fitted perfectly with Flight Engineer Stewart Stoddart’s report suggesting the plane was suffering an engine fire, and went down further North up that arc than the ‘experts’ thought, but still on that same arc, which is all they know about where the plane ended it’s flight.
But a few months ago, the Inmarsat data was recalculated, and gave new positions for the arcs which the aircraft supposedly crossed. And that threw his careful research out. His simulated flights, which had matched ALL the data perfectly, were redundant. But he kept going and made a new flight profile. It had changed the profile so drastically that he could only fit the timings of those arcs if he threw in an approach to Car Nicobar (and remember, my sighting is consistent with an abandoned approach to Bandeh Aceh).
I saw it, accepted it, and moved on. But having seen this article in The WSJ today, it makes me wonder if they DID have good reason for searching up there. They somehow tracked MH370 up that airway, N571 (commonly used for passages to Tehran, coincidentally), before they lost it, and THAT’S why they were searching up there.
This wasn’t a random miscommunication. This was an informed search based on their last known data, before they started to hide things and introduce red herrings to distract us all from the truth.
