I told them that it couldn't be on the land because the radars and satellites would have already detected it, and there would also likely be a few survivors if it happened there. I added that it thus had to be in the depths of the sea and if so, there would be 0.00 survivors as physically none of them would really be able to unbuckle themselves, break open the cabin door and crawl out of the plane while injured and then, pass the benign schools of sharks and piranhas before swimming their way right up to the surface hoping to be starkly noticed by shippers in their ships - all of which would indeed qualify as extraordinary multi-tasking*.
She agreed, one of them said it could have blown up in mid-air and more noticeably my barber friend who admired my talents and posed the same question to me initially opposed, saying if it were at sea the broken plane parts would have been picked up by the sensors at least. He even cited the example of a bird needing to fold up its wings prior to hitting the waters.
While I was truly overwhelmed by his wildlife and aerospace knowledge but I disagreed anyway and I simply told him that the plane could also partially-fracture before going into the sea entirely thereby completely escaping even the most intensive air surveillance scans.
And if it crash-landed on land and the affair took them so long to remain clueless then it could only mean that either our technology - alien-aided or otherwise - was presently undeniably lousy or the agencies conducting the search were, and if it was especially more to the latter the staff should therefore retire early (no worms for this variety of early birds sadly) and go back to their village to reunite with friends and family, at which he was plainly subdued.
So other than the slight hiccup most were open-minded intellectuals and in agreement with my prediction. And as CCTV revealed this morning, I'm right! Cheers!
PS Even if the probable finding is just probable I will still stick to my conviction.
*multi-tasking is, sad to say, an identified and commonly-known Western disease artifically-created by typically-arrogant capitalists particularly in the US of A to maximise productivity in the workplace for mostly lower-end jobs by minimising human labor for the realisation of optimised profit, that some weak and useless Asian countries allow and follow as the new standard.
China says that one of its satellites has detected three large "floating objects" in a region of the sea where it suspects the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 had an accident.
BEIJING: China said one of its satellites has detected three large floating objects in a suspected crash site near where a missing Malaysian jet lost contact, the latest twist in a hunt which entered its sixth day on Thursday.
China's state science and technology administration said on late Wednesday that a Chinese satellite had seen the objects in a "suspected crash sea area" in the South China Sea on March 9, and that the images were being analysed.
The search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 now encompasses nearly 27,000 nautical miles (over 90,000 square kilometres) -- roughly the size of Portugal -- and involves the navies and air forces of multiple nations.
The hunt originally focused on an area off Vietnam's South China Sea coast where the Boeing 777 last made contact on Saturday during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Malaysian authorities later expanded the search to the Andaman Sea, north of Indonesia, hundreds of miles away.
The suspected objects, the administration said on its website, were detected by the Chinese satellite were found at 105.63 degrees longitude East and 6.7 degrees latitude North.
It added that they were spread across an area with a radius of 20 kilometres (12 miles), in sizes that appeared to be 13 x 18 metres, 14 x 19 metres and 24 x 22 metres. Previous sighting of possible debris have proved not to be from the jet.
It was not clear whether or when the images had been shared with Malaysian officials coordinating the ever-shifting search effort. Officials could not immediately be reached for comment on Thursday morning.
US authorities said on Wednesday that their spy satellites had detected no sign of a mid-air explosion when a Malaysian airliner lost contact with air traffic controllers.
On Wednesday, Malaysia denied that the hunt for the aircraft was mired in confusion after a series of false alarms, rumours and contradictory statements.
Malaysian air force chief General Rodzali Daud attempted to explain why the search zone had been expanded, telling a press conference that military radar detected an unidentified object early Saturday north of the Malacca Strait off Malaysia's west coast.
He said that the reading, taken less than an hour after the plane lost contact over the South China Sea, was still being investigated and they were not able to confirm it was MH370.
The confusion has fuelled perceptions that Malaysian authorities are unable to handle a crisis on this scale, and infuriated relatives.
Analysts said there were burning questions over what information -- if any -- Malaysia has gleaned from both military and civilian radar, and the plane's transponders, and over discounted reports it was later detected near Indonesia.
"There are so many information sources that do not appear to have been used effectively in this case. As a result, the families of the missing passengers and crew are being kept in the dark," said David Learmount, operations and safety editor at industry magazine Flightglobal.
Months before the Malaysia Airlines jet vanished, US regulators had warned of a "cracking and corrosion" problem on Boeing 777s that could lead to a mid-air breakup and drastic drop in cabin pressure.
"We are issuing this AD (Airworthiness Directive) to detect and correct cracking and corrosion in the fuselage skin, which could lead to rapid decompression and loss of structural integrity of the airplane," the Federal Aviation Administration said.
It had circulated a draft of the warning in September, issuing a final directive on March 5, three days before MH370 disappeared.
In Malaysia, frustrations were boiling over with the country's active social media and some press outlets turning from sympathy for the families of relatives to anger over the fruitless search.
"The mood among Malaysians now is moving from patience... to embarrassment and anger over discrepancies about passengers, offloaded baggage and concealed information about its last known position," Malaysian Insider, a leading news portal, said in a commentary.
Twitter users took aim at the web of contradictory information that has fuelled conspiracy theories.
"If the Malaysian military did not see MH370 turn toward the Malacca Strait, then why the search? Who decided to look there and why?" one comment said.
The anger was compounded by a report aired on Australian television of a past cockpit security breach involving the co-pilot of the missing jet.
Malaysia Airlines said it was "shocked" over allegations that First Officer Fariq Abdul Hamid, 27, along with a fellow pilot, violated airline rules in 2011 by allowing two young South African women into their cockpit during a flight.
