Did the USA Accidentally Shoot Down MH370 off Diego Garcia?

The final fate of flight MH370 is still a mystery. So far, we have not been able to locate either the wreckage or landing site of that Malaysia airlines Boeing 777 airliner. Since my previous post on this topic, two interesting facts have come to light.

1. Somebody in the cockpit of that airplane altered the flight path program after the aircraft took off from Kuala Lumpur.

2. Some residents on Kuda Huvadhoo island in the Dhaalu atoll group of the Maldives reported seeing a large low flying jet at around 6:15 am on March 8.

Both new pieces of information got me thinking about an unfortunate, but likely, explanation for the final fate of flight MH370 which can also explain some of the peculiar circumstances surrounding that its disappearance. As many of you know, my previous post had postulated that MH370 flew through the outlying islands of the Maldive island chain.

A route from the last known radar contact of that airplane to the outlying islands of the Maldives would keep the aircraft out of the airspace of nations such as India and Sri Lanka. It helps that most of airspace over the Maldivian island chain is free of radars- civilian or military. The time when that large low flying airliner appeared over the Dhaalu atoll group in the Maldives also matches the expected ETA of a low and slow flying 777 airliner.

But what was the final destination of those in control of that airplane?

According to link # 2- “Eyewitnesses from the Kuda Huvadhoo concurred that the aeroplane was travelling North to South-East, towards the Southern tip of the Maldives”. Where could a pilot travelling South-East of that island land, especially given that he has less than 2 hours of fuel on board at that time? Well.. he could have always turned north and landed in Male or on any of the major airstrips in the Maldives- but it is rather clear from his flight path that he was not interested in doing that.

We are now left with only a few possibilities such as the american base on Diego Garcia, Mauritius, Reunion, Seychelles or some airstrip in Madagascar. But why would someone who hates attention want to land on tourist heavy compact islands like Mauritius, Reunion or Seychelles. While parts of Madagascar are remote, what would motivate somebody to land on that impoverished island?

And this brings us to the possibility that the person flying that airplane might have attempted to land on one of the long airstrips at the secretive US navy facility on Diego Garcia. Remember- “attempted” not “succeeded”. But why do I believe that MH370 did not succeed landing on that island?

Let me put it this way- we would have heard about it a week ago. Since Malaysia is a friendly (or at least non-adversarial) country, the US navy would have almost certainly let a damaged or otherwise stricken airliner land on that island. Nor was that aircraft carrying anything valuable or secretive enough to merit keeping its landing secret.

So why did that aircraft not land on Diego Garcia?

Here is my theory. The people on Diego Garcia were spooked by a large, low flying, unidentified (and likely) hijacked aircraft approaching the island. They might have tried to contact it a few times and either failed or become more fearful with each response. Perhaps they thought that they were in the midst of a mini-9/11. At some moment in time, somebody made a decision to launch SAMs at that aircraft to bring it down. You can guess what happened next..

But why would the USA try to cover up such an incident?

Well.. there are two reasons. Firstly- that base is remote enough to allow the USA to cover up an airliner shootdown over water for some time. Secondly- they probably realized within a few hours that most passengers on that airplane were Chinese nationals. It does not take much imagination to realize the very real diplomatic consequences of shooting down a plane full of Chinese nationals, especially if the circumstances surrounding that shooting are nebulous.

Here is a similar incident from over two decades ago – Iran Air Flight 655

What do you think? Comments?

    Sounds perfect ending of the curiosity of MH370 flight.

    Wow, this is nearly the exact theory I threw out with a few friends last night. The satellite data that said the plane was on one of two trajectories came from the US and would keep searchers far away from Diego Garcia giving the navy plenty of time to clean up their mess. Maybe the US said the southern route was most likely because they plan to distribute wreckage in that area later. Now the gov’t of the Maldives are saying that the sightings were false – after the US put pressure on them. Yes I’ve gone full on conspiracy theory here. :-) All the contradictions in this story are crazy. Sure hope we get some solid evidence soon.

    All the chatter in the media about lost passports, the crew members, hijacking etc., in addition to being incoherent and besides the point, serves to keep the focus off the most suspicious circumstance of all: Why are the authorities so reluctant to provide full disclosure?
    There’s no point about being super careful about not reporting reliable information because there’s very little to go on and very little to confirm. All the facts that have gradually been disclosed have been known (or at least settled) since day one — there’s no accumulation of facts nor new facts.
    When the transponder stopped signaling there was obviously a major emergency, and lacking all evidence for distress or crash, all attention should have been focussed on figuring out what the hell is going on, not searching the southern gigantic swathes of the southern ocean.
    Since the plane was deliberately and skillfully diverted and still flying hours later, all speculation about depressurization and mechanical failures is superfluous chatter. As a career pilot you don’t just turn off a transponder as a lark. Suicide can be done a lot more easily with some nitrogen or whatever, hyperventilation, and a sealed plastic bag over your head, etc. These guys did not seem out to kill 239 other people: Besides, crashing into the Petronas towers would have made more of a splash [sic] than diving into the Indian ocean.
    Since they were skilled and everything was deliberate, it makes no sense to assume they flew south into empty ocean until the engine spluttered for lack of fuel, or that there was any type of subsequent distress (statistically too unlikely to consider).
    If they were trying to achieve something delibarate by flying across the southern ocean, it seems obvious that whatever the purpose or the point was, it was not achieved. The (co-)pilot was not trying to defect from Malaysia (too easy with some money to find a different way to move to another country).
    Figuring out what they had in mind can be very difficult in view of the dearth of concrete information. However, figuring out why the authorities are being so reluctant certainly is an issue that must be addressed. This is already being discussed somewhat: Defense analysts said on Saturday that the jet’s disappearance raised awkward questions about the strength of regional or even global air defences. If the jet did stray into those areas, sensitivities over whether and how such sensitive data could be shared could be further complicated by potential embarrassment over how such a large unidentified aircraft could have continued unchallenged.

    It remains extremely suspicious that the Americans with all their intelligence assets (tracking sub-marine ICBM launches, thermal imaging, etc etc) have nothing to say. The Malay athorities have been misleading everybody from the start. Their interests seem to be at odds with soliciting all the help they can get to track down the truth. I vote for nefarious over mysterious. It is the authorities that are the chief protaganist in this story, no airplanes, technology, pilots, or whatever.

      In conclusion then we only actually have one plane missing that is mysterious in having never been found. Amelia Earhart…Thanks for your comment

    It definitely landed there, but I think you need to put a little bit more logic into your conclusion. First of all, he didn’t “accidentally” turn off his transponders, take a hard left turn, and decide to take a 6-hour joy ride over the Pacific Ocean, just happening to cruise past The Maldives & Diego Garcia – it was planned with military precision. Keyword being “military”. From turning off equipment in a perfect Tower black spot, to flying at high & low altitudes to avoid commercial radar detection, to flying through various “waypoints”, nothing was accidental about his chosen route or flying method. Whether he was controlling the plane himself, or someone else was controlling it for him. He didn’t “accidentally” end up at Diego Garcia, or attempt to land there due to a fuel shortage either – lets just make that clear. It’s in the middle of nowhere, and there’s nowhere else he really could’ve been headed with a runway big enough to accommodate. It was a planned destination, and the people there were expecting him. Therefore, they didn’t shoot it down by mistake. His low flying altitude over The Maldives is also indicative of plane preparing to land – Diego is only 1000km’s south of The Maldives, and very close in flying time.

    I won’t get into the reasons why – that’s a whole other story. What I will say though, that there was no crash or accidental shooting. It was an inside job involving the U.S. Military, and it landed safely at Diego.

    Another thing to note, is that Diego Garcia airport cancelled all flights for 72 hours beginning on the morning it dissapeared. The perfect window of time to land and hide a Boeing 777 with minimal witnesses:

    Whoever was flying that plane intended to land at Diego Garcia. The real question is:

    Did he succeed?

    I think not, because the airplane or its passengers do not have much value to the USA, especially because of the very public nature of its disappearance. At most, they would have delayed news of its capture by a couple of days.

    Accidentally shooting down an airliner does however carry a far bigger penalty, especially since most of the passengers were Chinese nationals. It makes far more to hide that you have shot it down than let it land. That is why I think the disappearance of MH370 was due to the actions of one or a few individuals than some large organized conspiracy.

    If it was “shotdown” or blew up, the emergency beacons would have started as soon as the plane hit water. No the passengers were taken off & interogated– Black Ops prison & terrorist handling facilities on DG Island.
    The plane was probably remotely flown (minus passengers of interest) to an undisclosed “accident” site , soon to be found in remote part of Indian Ocean. They needed time to accomplish this, hence media stories, being so varied, & allowing time with wrong search areas.
    US military has not been forthwright with radar info. No mention of Diego Garcia in MSM,even though this base has the proximity, radar & sat tech,& resources(planes & ships) to help in search. Only ONE US Poseidon plane is helping, & thats from Perth. Perth?
    This is the first act of war in Obama’s “ASIAN PIVOT”. The pivot away from the middle-east,now that Oil is controlled,& pipeline through Afghanistan, & towards surrounding CHINA with countries aligned to US agenda.
    For the intelligence gathering of a few Chinese computer systems engineers, a whole plane of passengers has had to perish.
    When found, the loss will be blamed on complete electrical failure & pilot error.
    Remember though:: Plane did a reverse course over sea, then flew back “OVER” land in Malaysia before heading out into Indian Ocean. Its course was towards Maldives & DG Is, not north to India/Thailand/Burma or south to Western Australia!!!

    It’s an inside job of Israel and United states.
    The secret society is the mastermind behind this tragedy. But for sure this truth will not be exposed as the entire government is under the control of secret society.

    There is a difference between covering screwups and careful scheming.

    The worshippers of Anti christ has a brilliant plan to execute and control this world for welcoming the anti christ dajjal. The 9/11 and the Middle East revolutions. Now they have come up with new plan that’s the 777 Boeing.

    The media is under the control of secret society. The government is under the control of secret society. The banking system is under the control of secret society.

    And the execution of 777 Boeing is also under the control of secret society.

    Never mistake incompetence and the subsequent cover-ups for a well thought out plan.

    Diego Garcia ?

    Maybe : maybe not.

    But this is interesting.

    http://postimg.org/image/ij385akxf/

    These are islands – coral reefs a bit north of Diego Garcia.

    They are in a direct line between the base and Abu City Atoll which is the most southerly point of the Maldives..

    So how come three areas have been edited / blocked out by Google Maps ?

    Censorship : accidental omission or something else ?

    There is no doubt that this plane was destined to be used as another 9/11 on the secret US military base on Diego Garcia. Housing at least 1,700 personel. It seems only right to me that if such a plane as the 777 aproached this secret base and failed to respond to radio contact, planes would have been launched to disable or destry such an aircraft. As at that time it was no internationally know that F370 had gone missing. Once the facts became known fill the torpedo tubes of a Sumarine with assorted debris and exel them some distance from the crash site to put the search off the scent.

  11. March 31, 2014 at 4:47 am

    My European friend said that their newspapers reported “Jet Fighters” shot the plane down! I did not find the newspaper reports but the US Navy does control the Island.

    The plane would then be miniscule and China would be more upset with us than they already are. Remember on Sept 16, 1985 the US became a debtor nation

    China could call in our debt and stand with Russia but it all depends on how much money foreign countries make from the US….It’s all about plotting and money

    In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. President Franklin D. Roosevelt

    From the discussion among a few people I know we’re that, the plane was carrying some sort of equipment on board.
    The story goes as followed, the Taliban had intercepted some American equipment, which was going to be sold to Russia, but instead somehow the Chinese bought this. This equipment was on board FLIGHT mh370. The Americans wanted this equipment back as it was a great importance to them. They had someone on board to take control of the plane and unfortunatley all the passengers on board got gased.
    As much as don’t want to believe this, sometimes it’s hard not to as the Americans have such great knowledge when it comes these situations and even for them not know we’re this flight is, it’s even harder to believe

    well i simply think that the pilot and the iranians guys wanted to crash the plane on DG island

    just as a 9/11 event.

    Imagine if such event took place, it would have shown the vulnerability of the american military ability.

    therefore there are 2 options:

    *the plane didnt made it to DG, it crached all by itself before reaching it’s aim

    or

    *the army shot it down as mH370 was not responding………

    ALB : Take a look at this image.

    It is a satellite view of the island / atolls just above Diego Garcia.

    Why are some of these island / atolls blocked out ?

    Maybe someone should be asking Google what is going on ?

    The US Government certainly knows a lot more about this matter than they are caring (or daring) to admit.

    I also think that far more probing questions should be asked of ‘Inmarsat’ : the so called ‘satellite’ company that claimed it was able to establish the potential location of the aircraft based on ‘engine pings’.

    Inmarsat is a in actuality a satellite telephone company.

    As such, it come to light that it installed all the onboard satellite phones for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. All the passengers in First class and Business class had access to Inmarsat’s satellite phones. These were connected to their individual seats.

    Odd that the press never picked up on that.

    Odd also, that Inmarsat has very deep links to the US government / defense departments.

    Inmarsat actually boasts of its capacity to track satellite phones and to collect data.

    https://www.inmarsatgov.com/

    So with all that capacity : one has to ask : how is it that Inmarsat hasn’t been asked for more information ?
