OK, if there weren’t enough conspiracy theories already regarding the sad loss of MH370, this one takes some beating. My comments are at the end:
“When the American were withdrawing from Afghanistan, one of their command and control systems (used for controlling the pilotless drones) was hijacked by the Talebans when the American transport convoy was moving down from one of the hill top bases. The Talebans ambushed the convoy and killed 2 American Seal personnel, seized the equipment/weapons, including the command and control system which weighed about 20 tons packed into 6 crates.
This happened about a month ago in Feb 2014.
What the Talebans want is money. They want to sell the system to the Russian or the Chinese. The Russian are busy in Ukraine. The Chinese are hungry for the system’s technology. Just imagine if the Chinese master the technology behind the command and control system, all the American drones will become useless. So the Chinese sent 8 top defense scientists to check the system and agreed to pay millions for it.
Sometime in early Mar 2014, the 8 scientists and the 6 crates made their way to Malaysia, thinking that it was the best covert way to avoid detection. The cargo was then kept in the Embassy under diplomatic protection. Meanwhile the American has engaged the assistance of Israeli intelligence, and together they are determined to intercept and recapture the cargo.
The Chinese calculated that it would be safe to transport it via civilian aircraft so as to avoid suspicion. After all the direct flight from KL to Beijing takes only 4 and half hours, and the American will not hijack or harm the civilian. So MH370 is the perfect carrier.
There might have been 5 American and Israeli agents onboard who are familiar with Boeing operation. The 2 “Iranians” with stolen passports could be among them.
When MH370 was about to leave the Malaysian air space and reporting to Vietnamese air control, one American AWAC jammed their signal, disabled the pilot control system and switched over to remote control mode. That was when the plane suddenly lost altitude momentarily.
How can the AWAC do this ?
Remember 911 incident ? After the 911 incident, all Boeing aircraft (and possibly all Airbus) were installed with remote control system to counter terrorist hijacking. Since then all the Boeing can be remotely controlled by ground control. The same remote control system used to control the pilotless spy aircraft and drones.
The 5 American/Israeli agents soon took over the plane, switched off the transponder and other communication system, changed course and flew westwards. They dare not fly east to Philippines or Guam because the whole South China Sea air space was covered by Chinese surveillance radar and satellite.
The Malaysian, Thai and Indian military radars actually detected the unidentified aircraft but did not react professionally.
The plane flew over North Sumatra, Anambas, South India and then landed at Maldives (some villagers saw the aircraft landing), refuelled and continued its flight to Garcia Deigo, the American Air Base in the middle of Indian Ocean. The cargo and the black box were removed. The passengers were silenced via natural means, lack of oxygen. They believe only dead person will not talk. The MH370 with dead passengers were air borne again via remote control and crashed into South Indian Ocean, make it to believe that the plane eventually ran out of fuel and crashed the blame would then be on the captain and copilot.
America. first diverted all the attention and search effort in the South China Sea while the plane made its way across the Indian Ocean. Then they came out with some conflicting statement and evidence to confuse the world. The Australian government is participating in this .
The amount of effort put up by China, in terms of the number of search aircraft, ships and satellites, searching first the South China Sea, then the Malacca Straits and the Indian Ocean is unprecedented. This showed that the China is very concerned, not so much because of the many Chinese civilian passengers, but mainly because of the strategic value of the cargo and its 8 top defense scientists. ”
As far as I am aware, the US drones are controlled from US soil, not in the conflict zone, therefore the command & control system cannot have been captured. UK drones are controlled in the UK, wherever they are operating. However, if I’m wrong, the scenario of the theft is credible except that it would be too well defended…by other drones, operating from the US.
It would not be possible to remotely take control of another aircraft’s control system without a major design impact but it could be possible to trigger a Trojan Horse via ACARS as its data is two-way street. However, the software designers must be involved in the scam and I cannot see anyone risking it being found out in a software audit. The Trojan Horse idea is directly from my novel Flight Into Darkness, of course (http://getBook.at/FlightIntoDarkness).
We safety regulators (retired, in my case) hate the idea of a catastrophic failure in a transport category aircraft because we’ve worked our lives to make them a thing of the past. Generally speaking, an aircraft crashes because three or four very unlikely things occurring at the same time, and one of those is that the human/machine interface (the pilot, in common parlance) does something unpredictable and…well…yes…stupid. See AF447.
In any case, if this is even partially true, we could expect another Mr Smowdon to reveal all sometime soon on Wikileaks. The US/Israel could not risk that.
So, the jury’s still out but expect more crackpot theories on MH370. I’ve also see one on extra-terrestrial involvement. These people should get out more.
