Day 2 to 7 have been filled with conflicting statements from DCA chief and Group CEO of MAS. There were more questions than answers during these agonising 5 days.

Today YAB PM Datuk Seri Najib had a press conference at about 2:25 pm today.  He said in no uncertain terms that someone in the plane has deliberately switched off the communication system of the aircraft (presumably the transponder) after MH370 entered into the airspace of Vietnam. The PM stopped short of stating that the flight MH 370 was hijacked.

The PM has also said that Malaysian government has stopped its its search and rescue (SAR) operation in the South China Sea and moved its assets to the northern and southern corridors (i.e. from Kazakhstan down to Northern Thailand  and Indonesia to South Indian Ocean).

He also said that there are 14 countries, 43 ships and 58 aircraft are involved in the SAR. “I wish to thank all the governments for their help at such a crucial time” said PM.

It has been reported that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, the Captain of flight MH 370, has a flight simulator at home. The Group CEO of MAS, En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, has said that a pilot is entitled to have a simulator at home, HERE.

It was reported in by the newspapers that soon after PM’s press conference this afternoon the police has gone to the house of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, the pilot of MH370. There was no release of the detail of the visit by the police.

    Hi Mr wee choo keong,in your opinion,why did the government make so many inconsistent testimonies? What’s the reason of lying? Do they ever concern about government credit?

      Dear Scarlett Yan

      Thank you for your comments.

      I do not think that the government was trying to lie with the inconsistencies of the DCA chief and MAS Chief CEO. I believe that the DCA Chief and MAS group CEO did not verify their facts when they spoke.

      I am sure that the government is concerned with its credibility on all matters. After a few press conferences, you no longer see the DCA chief and MAS Group CEO speaking. They were there by virtue of their position or making up the numbers.

      Have a pleasant weekend.

      Thank you

    It really mind blowing when goment only awared that 777-200er has crossed peninsular 7 days after it happened. Why they took 7 days before confirmed on this. While the main concern is to find the aircraft, the SAR should be done wisely and not just shoot in the dark……all pray and hope for crew and passenger of mh 370 and hope they will return to their love one safety…..

    Mr Wee,

    Yes indeed.

    Many possibilities on MH370.

    When the scientific processes cannot get answers…

    Massive UFO Fleet Caught By International Space Station Live Cam, Video –
    Saturday, March 15, 2014 17:04

    “Watch as a colorful fleet of UFOs is seen from the space station live cam this week. The UFOs actually change colors as they move. This fleet is following two lone UFOs far out ahead of them all. It looks like the fleet was caught leaving the dark side of the Earth just as the ISS came into view. This is one rare and amazingly beautiful event,” says Scott Warning, author of UFO Sightings Daily

    Mar 13, 2014
    Incredible fleet of unknown objects caught by the ISS on March10th, 2014. Objects seem to appear out of thin air, possibly a portal or wormhole of some kind. This footage cannot be denied or easily debunked, whatever these objects are they are heading for Earth, is disclosure imminent?

    Interesting Info – Something about abduction… Galactic Federation, etc…

    Turn your volume up & Listen starting at 14:45 onwards & 24:11 onwards…

    Hello, all Beloved Earth Dwellers, it is I, Ashtar. I have very good news to tell you about our successful Double Trouble display over the Ukraine.

    You will appreciate the irony embedded in the Truth which is now being revealed around the world.
    We are whooping and hollering on the ships, as you might say. Many of you have seen the video of the “cigar shaped UFO” over the Crimea

    – the territory where Putin gathered his ships and ground troops to try to “keep peace” by applying military force. The video was seen all over Russia as well as the rest of the world, and was claimed by the Russian press to be a UFO.

    You may have noticed it was then that Putin pulled the Russian troops back “to barracks.”
    He decided that the sight of a 3,000 foot long UFO flying surveillance over the trouble spot was not something he wanted to challenge…”

    Thank God that we don’t have to put up with the DCA chief for information or AJ of MAS. Of course, it was still in the confusing state. Now it would appear that MH370 has been hijacked. If it is then there is still hope for the 293 passengers and crews. Let us all pray hard for them.

  5. Lee

    Let us all pray for the crews, passengers and their families. It must be very painful for families to go through the past 11 days.

    Don’t make any speculation. Please help us to find the plane, for God’s sake if sincerely enough. Together we can do it!
