Where Is It?

by Maggie Sefton


Okay----this is a blog for mystery readers and featuring seven, sometimes eight,
mystery authors.  So it's a natural response for people like us to be fascinated by the Mystery of the Missing Plane.  Specifically, the Maylasian Airlines 777 jet airliner that disappeared ten days ago. . .without a trace.   This is the first time in my lifetime that there has been no sign of wreckage on land or oil slicks on the ocean's surface that would indicate the plane fell---accidentally or deliberately---into the deepest part of the ocean.  So deep, there has been no trace of wreckage.  No metal parts of a plane, no seat cusions floating, nothing.

Or. . .maybe there was some wreckage that floated---for a day or two then sank beneath the seas.  We're told wreckage will do that.  And it's a BIG ocean.  More than one big ocean, as a matter of fact.  The Indian Ocean meets the Pacific Ocean, and that ocean is HUGE.

Or. . .maybe the plane crashed-----either accidentally or delberately----into a remote jungle where the wreckage wouldn't be noticed upon a flyover, especially if the investigator was flying over a LARGE area of jungle.  So----it would take a more careful observation of those jungle areas.  And that brings me to my overall question.

We have all sorts of technological equipment which can pick up on "pings" and other signals coming from black boxes and other missing equipment.  No doubt, way more sophisticated equipment actually exists that we don't know about, and I have no doubt that is probably being used.   So. . .when will we hear about those results?  Meanwhile-----everyone is speculating.  The media is having a field day speculating.  So, why don't we do it here on Cozy Chicks Blog?    What do YOU think happened to the plane?

Do you think there was an accidental or deliberate crash?   Or. . .are you joining the folks who are beginning to voice opinions of a more supernatural nature?  :)   I have to admit that I'm amused by the similarity of this plane's disapparance and the "set up" for the TV series LOST a few years ago.  A plane was strangely diverted and fell somewhere in the Pacific Ocean near a deserted island.   Fascinating.

If it goes on for another week, I think the searchers should ask screenwriter J.J. Abrams for help.

I don't have a theory. I just hope it ends better than LOST did.

It really does sound like something out of a book/novel!

I think It's beginning to look more like a hijack went terribly wrong >_<

Diane LaBrie Leverson said...

I don't like the idea that they hijacked it and landed someplace so they could fill it with explosives to attack some country. That is really brings a really big problem for us. Since no one likes us anymore. I think he landed it someplace.

I feel like it's out there somewhere and that wherever it landed, people on the ground were waiting for it and in on the plan. But even if that were the case, and it's a stretch, how come someone hasn't been able to contact home, the authorities or get away? I pray this ends well.

I recently saw an episode of Star Trek Voyager, where Amelia Earhardt's plane featured. She was, plane and all, abducted by aliens, and Voyager found her and some other people in stasis. That was fun, and of course, could have happened to this plane. But I have to wonder, people can be tracked by their cellphones on cop shows, so why not now?

Since they were looking in the ocean, I said it was probably on land. It could have landed somewhere were it could be hidden. The question I saw today was, "Didn't anyone use their cell phone that was on the plane? or did someone block calls also.

It's beginning to sound more and more like the plot of Lost.

DogsMom said...

I really believe it was deliberate but was it the pilot or copilot, or both, or was it a result of the myusterious passengers with the stolen passports. That seems too far fetched to have been coincidence. Was there someone special on this flight, and the others the victims of bad timing? There had to be a plan to set the plane down somewhere. Were they successful? Are there any clues in the "All right. Good night." message? Was that a typical exchange?
I am not a fan of how the media has been playing up reports of flotsam and jetsam.
I feel for the families who I hope are not following the daily news and rely on official sources for updates.
Regardless, you know there will be a movie.

Mark and Mary---Sorry for the delayed reply. Tuesday morning I came down with that vicious flu going around, fought the nausea for 2 days then had to go to hospital & have been recuperating ever since. This flu is all over country and it's terrible. Treat it seriously.

Maggie Sefton said...

Ohhh, I hope not.

Maggie Sefton said...

I'm afraid they're all dead. Plane went up to 45,000 ft at one point. At that altitude, without oxygen, everyone would die. Horrible.

Maggie Sefton said...

I think it's at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. So, no signals.

Maggie Sefton said...

That's possible too.

I know. :) I loved LOST.
