An AirAsia flight travelling from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control, the company has said.
Indonesian media say 162 people were on board.
“AirAsia Indonesia regrets to confirm that flight QZ8501 from Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control at 07:24hrs this morning.
At the present time we unfortunately have no further information regarding the status of the passengers and crew members on board, but we will keep all parties informed as more information becomes available.” The company stated.
The aircraft was an Airbus A320-200 with the registration number PK-AXC.
Already, “search and rescue operations are in progress”.
Recall that on 8th of March 2014, Malaysian flight MH370 went missing with 239 people on board and was never found. Then three months later, precisely on 17th July 2014, MH17, another Malaysian flight was shot down killing all 283 passengers.
The missing of the AirAsia flight is another wound in the heart of Asian aviation. Malaysia is about 895.15 Miles away from Indonesia. If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) between Indonesia to Malaysia,
It takes 1.6 hours to arrive. The whole of Asia mourns again.

Sarah Bajc, girlfriend of Malaysia 370 passenger Philip Wood, joins CNN and shares with the world witness confirmation from another family member that MH370 was seen accompanied by two military jets prior to its’ ‘disappearance’
Bajc also shares with the world that she and other passengers family members are confident that the plane is not only still intact, but that the passengers have also survived. Sharing that governments of the world are still lying about this, she also shares that military and security experts she’s spoken to believe that this entire mystery is a military operation.
SHOCKING REVELATIONS ABOUT THE MISSING MALAYSIAN FLIGHT MH370..7 WEIRD CONSPIRACY THEORIES ON THE FLIGHT
1: The plane could be in Taliban-controlled regions
Investigators looked at a possibility of the plane being flown to Taliban-controlled bases.
Malaysian authorities sought diplomatic permission to scrutinize Taliban-controlled bases on the borders of Afghanistan and North West Pakistan, the Independent reports.
According to the report, experts said that the plane’s transponders were deliberately disabled by someone of expertise on board, as the plane continued to give out ‘pings’ or satellite signals despite getting off radar.
Meanwhile, the satellite data pointed that the plane was on one of two possible arcs, one stretching north from Thailand to Kazakhstan and crossing more than 10 countries, and one to the south over Indonesia and out across the southern Indian Ocean.
Large areas of the southern half of Afghanistan are ruled by the Afghan Taliban, while some areas of north-west Pakistan, adjacent to or near to the Afghan border, are controlled by the Pakistani Taliban, the report said.
Malaysian officials said that the search area has been significantly expanded and changed, as they were now looking at large tracts of land, crossing 11 countries as well as deep and remote oceans and have also requested help from a dozen Asian countries and asked them to provide radar data.
Pakistani civil aviation officials said they had checked their radar recordings and found no sign of the missing jet.
2. Chinese satellites spotted the wreckage
Another “red herring” for the investigators was the satellite imagery released by China, which showed “three suspected floating objects” of varying sizes in a 20-kilometre radius, the largest about 24-by-22 metres off the southern tip of Vietnam.
The images, taken a day after the MH370 went off radar by China’s State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence, gave coordinates of 105.63 east longitude, 6.7 north latitude, which would put it in waters northeast of where the aircraft took off in Kuala Lumpur, south of Vietnam and close to where the plane lost contact with air traffic control.
Malaysian authorities have, however, rejected the claim. “There is nothing. We went there, there is nothing,” Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.
New Zealander Mike McKay, who works on the oil rig Songa Mercur off Vung Tau on the south east coast of Vietnam, claimed he saw the ill-fated flight on fire.
In fact, McKay was so sure about what he saw that he mailed his employers, urging them to pass the information onto authorities.
In his email to his employers on March 12, he claims he saw flames in the sky which quickly extinguished.
“From when I first saw the burning (plane) until the flames went out (still at high altitude) was 10-15 seconds. There was no lateral movement, so it was either coming toward our location, stationary, or going away from our location,” he wrote.
“The general position of the observation was perpendicular/south west of the normal flight paths. The surface location of the observation is Lat 08 22’ 30.20” N Lat 108 42.22.26” E.”
Vietnamese officials sent a plane to the area to investigate the man’s claims, but the search was fruitless.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that US investigators suspect a missing Malaysian jetliner flew on for four hours once it lost contact with air traffic controllers.
The report said, “Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co. BA -0.99% 777’s engines as part of a routine maintenance and monitoring programme.”
“That raises a host of new questions and possibilities about what happened aboard the wide body jet carrying 239 people, which vanished from civilian air-traffic control radar over the weekend, about one hour into a flight to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.”
The report adds that while Malaysian authorities have refused to comment on the new data, that “the huge uncertainty about where the plane was headed, and why it apparently continued flying so long without working transponders, has raised theories among investigators that the aircraft may have been commandeered for a reason that appears unclear to US authorities”
The theory involving terrorists gained momentum after two passengers on board MH370 were found to be travelling on stolen passports.
However, Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said investigators had determined that one was a 19-year-old Iranian, Pouria Nourmohammadi Mehrdad who was planning to migrate to Germany.
Interpol identified the second man as a 29-year-old Iranian and released an image of the two boarding a plane at the same time. Interpol Secretary General Ronald K Noble said the two men travelled to Malaysia on their Iranian passports, then apparently switched to their stolen Austrian and Italian documents.
But terror angle has still not been ruled out.
Pilot David Learmount, who is operations and safety editor of Flight Global magazine, said: “Something happened and the pilots did not tell anyone. Why? It’s a good question. It’s extraordinary the pilots failed to call because they had plenty of time to. Unless there was a bomb on board but there has been no evidence of that.”
Other groups, however, have claimed responsibility over the last few days, including an unknown Chinese group. An email was sent to various journalists in China, saying: “You kill one of our clan, we will kill 100 of you as payback.”
But officials in Malaysia have said they believe the group’s claim could be a hoax.
6. Passengers’ phones are still ringing
Panic alarms went off when distraught family members heard a dial tone while trying to call their relatives onboard MH370.
Numerous media reports cited instances when phones taken on board the flight were still ringing four days after the plane’s disappearance.
Reports suggest as many as 19 families managed to call phones of their missing loved ones, while the airline itself has got through to some of the missing crew’s handsets.
And even more bizarrely, some social media sites have shown missing passengers as still being ‘online’
But experts are blaming phone networks and carriers for the panic.
“That does not mean the phone you are calling is ringing yet,” wireless analyst Jeff Kagan told NBC News, adding, “”The network is searching for the phone. First based on where it last was, then it expands. Then if the network can’t find the phone, the call terminates.”
7. The invisible aircraft
Conspiracy theorists say terrorists could have cut the transponders, dropped below the radar and flown the plane to an isolated airport somewhere in Vietnam — left over from the Vietnam War.
The plane had at least seven hours worth of fuel on board and this theory is supported by the lack of wreckage.
The theory goes further with the possibility the plane could have been ‘cloaked’, technology that uses a hexagonal array of glasslike panels to bend light around an object.
There are suggestions this theory could be linked to the 20 passengers on board who worked for Texas company Freescale.
Citizen news site, Beforeitsnews.com said: “It is conceivable that the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 plane is “cloaked,” hiding with hi-tech electronic warfare weaponry that exists and is used. In fact, this type of technology is precisely the expertise of Freescale, which has 20 employees on board the missing flight”.
However, Thomas Way, associate professor of computing science at Villanova University, told FoxNews.com: “Invisible to what? We already have stealth aircraft that are invisible to radar (usually), but there is absolutely no way given our current understanding of physics that something could be made invisible to the naked eye… If that’s what they are claiming, it’s a hoax.”
It has become clear to the world that there is something the government of Malaysia is not telling the world. Conspiracy theorists working with Africa Thisday are already brainstorming on the possible background of Flight MH370; the identity and personality of every member of the crew of MH370; their call logs and possible connection to any terrorist group; the GPS location of the phone numbers of the passengers of MH370.
The “official” story of what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is now a blatant cover-up. After an endless stream of wild incompetence from the Malaysian military and government concerning the radar signature of the missing flight, we are now told by the Malaysian government that the flight “went down over the southern Indian Ocean” and that all lives are lost.
This explanation smacks of an obvious cover-up for several crucial reasons, all of which are now being utterly ignored by the conventional press:
#1) If the plane went down in the ocean, it would have broken up on impact and debris would be easily spotted
A Boeing 777 does not — and cannot — survive impact with the ocean and remain intact. It simply does not have the structural integrity to survive such an impact, which is a lot like hitting a cement wall at terminal velocity.
If Flight 370 hit the ocean, it would have been broken into tens of thousands of pieces, many of which obviously float on water (such as the seat cushions) and would be witnessed washing up on regional shores or easily spotted by search teams.
The lack of such debris is strong support that Flight 370 did not crash into the Indian Ocean as we are now being told.
#2) The plane continued broadcasting data to Boeing for 4 – 7 hours
Remember the fact that the airplane was broadcasting data for at least 4 hours after the transponder was turned off? This fact is now suddenly being dumped from history and from our memories as if it never happened.
We already know Flight 370 flew for 4 – 7 hours after diverging from its planned flight course. We already know this could have taken the plane to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran or even North Korea. The fact that the plane broadcast this data for hours is not in dispute!
Wall Street Journal: “U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786. Flight 370 stayed in the air for up to four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky.”
The Guardian: “MH370: Missing plane could have kept flying four hours after disappearing, US investigators say… Engine data shows plane could have kept flying for four hours after disappearing”
Washington Post: ” the plane may have flown for at least four hours after it dropped from civilian radar, U.S. officials said Thursday. A senior U.S. official said the information came from data sent via a satellite communications system by Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. That data has convinced U.S. officials that the plane’s engines continued to run for at least four hours after all other communication was lost.”
So how does the Malaysian government now explain this? They don’t. They simply gloss over this fact and hope we all forget it. They claim the plane went down in the Indian Ocean without flying very far at all. This makes no sense whatsoever and cannot be reconciled with the flight broadcast data received by Boeing.
#3) There is ZERO evidence the flight crashed into the Indian Ocean
What is the Malaysian government’s evidence that Flight 370 ended in the Indian Ocean and “all lives are lost?”
They have no evidence. They have no bodies. They have no debris, no flight recorders, no sightings and no radar signatures that would put the aircraft in the Indian Ocean.
They have zero evidence. So they are now floating a cover-up to try to put this issue to rest in order to distract from their own incompetence and their bizarre failure to track the radar signature of an aircraft flying well within the range of their radar.
In fact, the only debris floating around right now is made of all the fragments of the Malaysian government’s inept cover-up attempts that smack of a true “rookie attempt” to roll out a cover-up that’s full of holes.
This utter lack of evidence did not prevent the Malaysian government from announcing, “we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived.” (USA Today)
#4) Another crucial fact: It’s clear that the transponder was manually turned off in order to hide the plane’s new flight path
If the pilot of Flight 370 was suicidal and wanted to fly the plane into the ocean, there would be no need to switch off the transponder before doing so.
In fact, there would be no need to make all the complex, intentional flight maneuvers which Flight 370 clearly took as has been widely reported.
The fact that the transponder was manually disconnected followed by the plane making deliberate maneuvers that put it on a new flight path is near-absolute proof that the persons controlling the aircraft had no intention of flying the plane into the ocean. It’s also strong evidence that they did not want governments to track their new flight direction and destination.
Without question, they intended to take the plane somewhere else and land it somewhere else, which is exactly why the aircraft continued broadcasting flight performance data to Boeing for 4-7 hours.
The Malaysian government is now hoping you forget all these facts in believing their bizarre cover-up explanation.
Malaysia’s 9/11 official story
Flight 370 is now Malaysia’s 9/11, complete with nonsense “official” stories and attempts to memory hole all the facts that originally came out in the mainstream media.
We are soon going to be told outrageous lies like “Oh, Boeing never received any flight data broadcasts from the aircraft, didn’t you know?”
Anyone who now cites all the facts which have already been reported in support of the theory that Flight 370 continued on to another destination will be called “conspiracy theorists” and kooks.
The mainstream media will start scrubbing stories and retroactively altering its reporting to match the “official” government story. We’ve seen this before. It’s how governments and media outlets sweep 239 lives under the rug and try to discredit anyone who asks skeptical, scientifically-sound questions based on the actual evidence.
In truth, the Malaysian government’s bizarre new claim that Flight 370 “ended in the Indian Ocean” is the biggest conspiracy theory of all. It’s sheer lunacy to reach such a conclusion without compelling evidence to support it, especially in light of all the other evidence that Flight 370 continued on for hours after the transponder was intentionally disabled.
Most likely explanation at this point: The aircraft is being turned into a weapon
Based on the Malaysian government’s obvious cover-up attempt (which is incredibly transparent and childish as far as cover-ups go), it now seems increasingly likely that the Flight 370 aircraft has, indeed, been delivered to a rogue nation where it is being transformed into a weapon.
Malaysia has already proven that it is so incompetent that it cannot track huge aircraft flying across its airspace. This means a weaponized Boeing 777 is essentially a “stealth aircraft” to the Malaysian military — a shocking revelation about military incompetence and lack of national security readiness in that nation.
Apparently, this same Boeing 777 can also fly undetected across the airspace of other nations — most likely by “shadowing” existing flights while turning off its own transponder.
Whoever took control of Flight 370 now has a massive stealth weapon which an incredibly long flight range. This aircraft can now be outfitted with nuclear weapons and dispatched to almost any desirable target anywhere in the world, including cities like New York and Washington D.C., unfortunately.
I was the first journalist in the world to suggest that Flight 370 had been captured and turned into a weapon. That same story was also the very first story to suggest Flight 370 passengers may still be alive.
I still believe Flight 370 passengers may have survived the flight and the landing at the new destination, but now that world governments are rolling out their “official” stories, there is no question in my mind that they will do anything to support those official stories, even if it means discarding the lives of all the passengers. Sadly, I am now forced to recalculate the odds of Flight 370 passengers being found alive at no better than 1 in 5. (It was previously as high as 1 in 2.) But it is not zero! There is a realistic chance the passengers are being kept alive as some sort of international bargaining chip.
You can now expect the governments and media outlets of the world to start scrubbing their archived stories and statements, altering the “news history” to fit this new Malaysian government cover-up.
I wouldn’t even put it past these people to now secretly sink some aircraft debris in the Indian Ocean so they can “find it” and thereby complete the cover-up.
