Wow !!

I wonder what the possibility is of the aircraft being hijacked and landed at some remote field ?
Anybody know how long a runway the 777 needs for a landing ?

Or a Bermuda Triangle thingy ?

One possibility that is now being floated is the aircraft was hijacked. If the hijackers turned off the IFF the aircraft would have disappeared off the radar tracking systems just like they did on 9/11. If this is the case the plane could be on one of a number of abandoned or semi-abandoned airfields in the region.

Given the fuel and range of the aircraft in this case it could be sitting on Tinian or in some remote part of China or Mongolia along with any number of other island and remote airfields.

As an American, I must say we dont need to see pictures of Al Qaeda being glorified. Look in any event, I really dont give a dam what you think based on your recent post(are you ok with Al Qaeda avatars?), but I will say, if you think its ok to have a avatar which glorifies Al Qaeda, then I really have nothing to say to you.

My Lord, I must say this is amazing, talk about letting the terrorists win, people like Bin laden, Anders Brevik, mass school shooters, they win when idiots give in to utter stupidity. That stop Islamazation of Europe is complete filth, utter hatred which is rejected by practically anyone with a mind. Those pictures of Muslims holding signs saying this and that, give me a break, I can find pictures of "radical Jews" and "radical Christians" and radical anythings, I mean wow, just wow, the floodgates are open. LoL


By putting up a absurd fringe picture in your avatar, VinceW, your only giving extremists of all natures a win. Your probably a good person in RL, why the need for the picture man?

The maniacal anti Islamophobes like Robert Spencer of SIOA and groups like Stop islamazaiton of Europe, they win when people give into these theatrics, there is no issue with Muslims invading Europe of the USA. This is America We have been around for 225+ years and fought off the nazis, give me a break with this "we need to worry about the Muslims" no we dont Wake up! Common criminals in/outside the USA are the threat, not Muslims or Jews or w/e

Meanwhile over in Pakistan a 14 year old Muslim sacrifices himself and throws himself at a would be sucide bomber, and yet VinceW you have that avatar, a mega insult to a religion. Oh thats wonderful, really its hilarious because the truth is, now I can put up a avatar which insults Jews, Buddhists or who ever I want. You have opened up the floodgates Vince W thanks dude

So what, theres Christians who believe Jews should turn to Jesus, theres Christians in Nigeria in who eat Muslims for dinner. So really, whats the point of your avatar considering the fact that for example, in Israel, Muslims and Jews co exist just fine, we see Muslims and Jews working together in business, law, medicine etc, and in Israel.

http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forum...d.php?t=145738


And then we have your avatar, how do you think these Jews and Muslims who work together in Israel and many other places in the world, would react to your avatar?

Geez, who cares? And unless that hardworking team of Jewish Muslims was on the airliner why are you even discussing it here? Go open a thread about avatars and whatnots if you feel so stongly about it.

No, it is common to find a fairly large debris field. The Air France flight the tail section was afloat along with a lot of other wreckage. Flight 800 was that way. That is normal.

The Air France flight recovery of the recorders was difficult because of the ocean depth and area of search. That took two years. Even then they had considerable other data from recorders that took flight information ashore even as the aircraft wasn't on radar.

Here you should have the same thing: Other communications systems on the aircraft would continue to work even if the IFF was turned off. The persistence of cell phones taking calls would be an indication that they are not on the bottom of the ocean. If flight data transmissions ceased with radar contact or the IFF being lost then it is more likely those systems were deliberately turned off than not.
