    well like....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimli_Glider


    Apparently most glide ratio is somewhere around 15 nautical miles.

    Maybe I'm an idiot, but lets say hypothetically, it started gliding from 45000ft, at the same lower ratio as the Gimli Glider there, it should be able to cover somewhere in the neighborhood of 171Kms?

    I know that's not profoundly far, but it would totally #$%# the search areas a bit more.



    That said, it's pretty obvious that there is information that Investigators aren't releasing yet and there's probably a pretty clear idea of what happened already internally.
     
  2. Why did the US spend so much money developing the B-2 when they could have just used 777's ??
     
  3. lol

    Ja

    That's more like 20 mins
     
  5. okay. point taken. didn't really consider that 170ish kms is like, dick all in an airplane.




    there worst part about this kind of "attack" is not really how many people they kill.



    it's obviously the inspiration it gives to other bad people.



    all they really have to show is the "possibility" of anything like this.

    For a modern airliner at cruise, if you were to shut off the engines instantaneously, the aircraft would have a glide ratio of about 20. However, it would be seriously hamstrung if the pilot was not also familiar with gliding techniques. An airliner flown like an airliner probably would see its gliding efficiency plummet.
     
  7. We admitted to it, and even paid compensation for it. We just never apologized for it. Presumably for some silly political reason.
     
  8. +1
     
  9. Likely that;

    1) Plane crashed into ocean due to sucky pilots 98% probability
    2) Terrorist Activity, hostage situation, and Tier 1 making sure no media is made aware of the problem to try to contain it from spreading 1% probability
    3) Ancient Aliens 1% probability

    Either way, zero effect on my life
     
  10. be careful guys, dont put your phones in airplane mode
     
  11. you might never be able to find it again <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>
     
  12. F*Ck you corks.
     
  13. You were being a shithead and I bit.

    But...obviously depending on outcome it clearly will affect your life a bit.
     
  14. Walper has always been, and will continue to be a shithead.

  16. KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA—Following a host of conflicting reports in the wake of the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 last Saturday, representatives from the Kuala Lumpur–based carrier acknowledged they had widened their investigation into the vanished Boeing 777 aircraft today to encompass not only the possibilities of mechanical failure, pilot error, terrorist activity, or a botched hijacking, but also the overarching scope of space, time, and humankind’s place in the universe.

    The airline, now in its fifth day of searching for the passenger jet carrying 239 passengers and crew, has come under fire for its perceived mishandling of the investigation, whose confusing and contradictory reports have failed to provide definitive answers on everything from how long the missing plane remained aloft after losing contact with air traffic controllers, to whether the flight made a radical alteration in its heading, to the very dimensions of space-time and the nature of reality, and what exactly it is that brought us into existence and imbued us with this thing we call life.

    Additionally, the airline confirmed it had expanded its active search area to include a several-hundred-square-mile zone in the Indian Ocean as well as each of the seven or 22 additional spatial dimensions posited by string theory.

    “We continue to do everything in our power and explore every possible lead—both Cartesian and phenomenological—to locate the aircraft as quickly as possible,” said Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, who went on to say that authorities were still actively seeking tips from anyone claiming knowledge related either to the flight, or to the mechanisms by which consciousness arises, or to the question of why anything physical and finite exists instead of nothing at all. “At this stage, we can’t rule anything out: not crew interference with the transponders, not a catastrophic electrical failure, not the emergence of a complex topological feature of space-time such as an Einstein-Rosen bridge that could have deposited the flight at any location in the universe or a different time period altogether, nothing.”

    “Could a parallel universe have immediately swelled up from random cosmological fluctuation according to the multiverse theory and swallowed the flight into its folds, or could ice have built up on an airspeed sensor? Those are both options we are currently considering,” Rahman added. “Everything’s on the table. That is, insofar as anything exists at all, which we’re also looking into.”

    Rahman assured the press and families of passengers that officials would not rest until they locate the plane, provided that sensory experience can be verified beyond the existence of one’s own mind. Malaysian authorities also cautioned that they were dealing with an unprecedented aviation mystery and that it could take months to ascertain the airliner’s exact fate as well as, for that matter, the fate of mankind itself, assuming a linear theory of space-time in which the future is unknowable and objects travel in a forward trajectory which, authorities hasten to add, is not necessarily the case.

    In addition, airline sources attempted to assuage an uneasy public by noting they had brought in top crash investigators from the Malaysian, Vietnamese, and Chinese governments, as well as U.S. Navy personnel, Boeing technicians, leading quantum physicists, theoretical cosmologists, metaphysicians, epistemologists, and determinist philosophers to help scour all conceivable and as yet inconceivable locations in which the plane might be located.

    “The bottom line is that we have a sophisticated aircraft fresh off a safety inspection with no prior incident of malfunction, flying in good weather at a cruising altitude,” Rahman continued. “Why didn’t the pilot send a distress signal? Why aren’t we finding a debris path? What are we to make of the contradictory radar information? Where did the universe begin and can it be said to have a limit or an edge? What is mankind’s role in it? Is there a God? If so, what is God’s nature?”

    “It’s too early to answer these questions right now, but I can assure you that Malaysia Airlines will get to the bottom of it,” Rahman added. “Our top people are on it right now
     
  17. cliff notes your noob
     
  18. Donnie Darko shit? Full retard right there...
     
  19. Haha, that's awesome.
     
  20. " as well as U.S. Navy personnel, Boeing technicians, leading quantum physicists, theoretical cosmologists, metaphysicians, epistemologists, and determinist philosophers to help scour all conceivable and as yet inconceivable locations in which the plane might be located."
    Best quote of thread
     
  21. Sounds like either they're grasping at straws or they're making up dumb shit as distractions.
     
  22. Why hasn't the Kaiju cause been hightligted ? Its the most plausible IMO
     
  23. Objects found off of australia.

  25. We know have Australian drones, powered by the undying soul of the Hon. Tony Abbott, which will uncover thy wreckage at thy bidding.
