Malaysia Airlines flight pinged satellite for 4 hours after radar lost

The search for the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing almost a week ago has now turned to land. India has launched the first land search for the Malaysia Airlines flight with the new evidence that the plane flew for four hours more after it dropped off the radar, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Friday morning March 14.

According to the Globe and Mail on Friday, March 14, one U.S. official reports that the Malaysia Airlines plane sent signals for another four hours after it dropped out of sight on the radar. This blips, or signals were recorded by a satellite.

A new theory seems to have taken on much promise as the remote islands off the coast of India are being searched for an area big enough to land the Boeing 777. The theory that the plane was hijacked and taken for a future terrorist event has gained some steam today.

Aviation experts say that although the Boeing 777 would need a long runway, under the right circumstances the jet could land on a smaller size runway. They would need a very experienced pilot and the plane would need to have most of the fuel gone to attempt a landing on a runway not made for a jet the size of the Boeing 777.

This working theory, which suggests the disappearance of the jet was a deliberate act, offers a remote chance that the 239 passengers and crew on board may be alive. The jet’s two transponders were turned off just minutes apart from each other. One transponder was turned off at 1:07 a.m. and the other at 1:21 a.m., which indicates to the experts that the transponders going off was not due to a catastrophic event. If that were the case they would have gone off at the same time. After the transponders were shut down the plane continued on for another four hours.

As Steve Doocy on “Fox and Friends” reports on Friday morning, that jet was “pinging” for another four hours after the transponders were turned off.

What would they want this jet for?

Some theorize that the people who took the jet will use it for an attack, such as what was seen on 9/11. If the jet is in the hands of terrorists they could load it up with explosives and create a deadly attack vessel by flying it into some targeted location. It would stand to reason that if terrorists decided to hijack a jet, they would go to this airline, as it appears to have some lax in security.

Again this is all speculation, but with the search now expanded to the land looking for runways long enough to accept the Boeing 777, it sounds like some believe this is a possible scenario. As Elisabeth Hasslebeck asked on “Fox and Friends:” Was this jet taken to a “secret location” with plans to use it elsewhere?

With this new scenario looking more and more like a feasible possibility, could the passengers still be alive today? It would stand to reason if this was the case the hijackers wouldn’t release them until they were done with whatever plans they have for this jet.

Then again, this jet could be sitting somewhere on the ocean floor where no one has looked yet. What do you think?
