Debris from Doomed Malaysia Airlines Plane Found

Vietnamese search and rescue teams found what may be part of a door from the doomed Malaysian Airlines plane that vanished early Saturday. The door and a piece of the plane’s tail were seen floating in the ocean about 50 miles south-southwest of Tho Chu island.

Officials released a photo of the door on Sunday. Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members vanished from the radar about an hour after departing Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Investigators believe the plane “disintegrated” in mid air. That theory could explain the lack of a debris field in the sea.

Flight MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur then climbed to a cruising altitude of 35,000 before turning back, investigators say. The plane descended 600 feet before vanishing.

Malaysia’s aviation regulator told the media there were no signals or beacons sent from the plane before it vanished.

The lack of a debris field could indicate a terrorist act, according to an aviation expert.

“If it was a catastrophic event at cruise altitude, the debris field would be hard to detect. In theory, there would be no large sections of the airplane left intact,” said Jonathan Galaviz, an aviation consultant.

“Never have I seen an aircraft losing control and losing all communication,” said Mark Martin of aviation consultancy Martin Consulting.

Two passengers listed on the flight manifest purchased tickets at the same time using passports that were reported stolen in 2012 and 2013. The passport owners -— an Austrian and an Italian — were located and cleared by police.

“It’s pretty easy to pick up a stolen or a counterfeit passport,” a security expert said. But that did not sit well with Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who criticized border officials for letting the two passengers through.

“I am still perturbed. Can’t these immigration officials think? Italian and Austrian but with Asian faces,” he said on Sunday.

The 227 passengers included 20 employees of a global communications firm; 2 American children; an infant, and the niece of Kuching police chief.

A flotilla of ships from numerous countries searched the crash site for signs of wreckage from the doomed Malyasia Airlines plane on Sunday.

Mourners created a detailed sand sculpture in honor of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 victims.

    I can’t believe after all that’s happened in the world, you can still get on a plane with a passport that was reported stolen! Don’t the people at the gate scan them or something!? Nothing pops up on the screen!? I mean, damn.

    @Nakeya

    From what I’ve heard, even from the HR office at my job, it is very easy to duplicate or forge a passport. I’m not sure why because when I look at my own I see an official seal, a bar code for scanning, etc. But I’m guessing there is some pretty advanced technology that is making it harder to detect immediately. I would think whatever they are using AFTER the fact to find this out should be used BEFORE folks get on the plane! But that makes too much sense…smh… :coffee:

    Good Morning oohlalalun,missyJ,southernPrincess,Matchstixs,AfYah, KEKE, WastiNgtime, Ashland and Sandra Rose’

    This morning ON GMA, they have rescinded the statement that this or any objects as of right now;Are not apart of the jetliNer..

    I read Yesterday, it’s common in several countries and probably even Our Own to not match up passports from the stolen/lost passport databases.
    I guess it isnt in the budget to take an extra 7mins to check :shrug:

    Also they said the two passengers could just be illegal’s trying to enter another country. It happens often.

    this story is TRAGIC! I seen the two boys of the Texas Man on tv this morning :no: they broke my heart.

    Sad story, freakish even :no:

    Its not far fetched with the stolen passports, how do you think illegals from other countries (besides Mexico and Central America) get into the good ole USA :tea:

    A lot of these countries (Malaysia being one of them) do not have the technology we may have to detect a fraudulent passport. They sometimes do it by naked eye in some places! Sad but man o man talk about crazy.

    I hope bodies at least pop up to give the public some kind of closure. It would suck not having that kind of end to this story.

    Morning luvn! I seen that this morning too. I also saw the tweets of the man who missed the flight because he had to cover for a co worker. I can’t even imagine what these people are going through. The coming days will be grim because at this point I don’t think that they will be able to identify the bodies. Also how would they identify those with the fake passports? Hopefully they had someone waiting at the gate who knew who they really were.

    On Sunday, the 28th of July, 2013, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a prophetic message concerning an Asian nation – warning them of an incident, involving a large aircraft, carrying over 200 people, developing a fault soon after take off. He subsequently prayed for the nation.

    Good Morning Sandra Rose – According the news sources. There were a couple of passengers with stolen passports, this would make me believe that it was hijacked. Remember 9/11 the people had stolen identities. They were able to get DLs and passports this way. This is very sad sad time we are living in.

    Whats ur theory.. they’re still alive Out there?

  26. 26
    Sandra Rose says:

    The last known position of the plane was when it turned back toward Kuala Lumpur. It disappeared from the radar probably because it was flying below the radar. There was no mayday signal. That means the pilot turned the plane around or the hijackers did. They’re looking at sea when they should be looking on land.

    The plane could have landed in Vietnam with plenty of fuel to spare. They can’t track it on radar if it is flying below radar, or if the transponder was turned off.

    Wasting time says:

    I think they should move the search to land. They have flooded the ocean with subs, ships, boats and equipment and have found nothing. Even the oil slick has proved not to be from the plane. I hope that they landed the plane at their intended destination and left the people to fend for themselves. It is becoming more and more clear that the plane is not where they are looking.
