    Well it looks like nothing confirmed yet except for the fact they cant find this big plane though Reuters is saying that Spy Satellites found no evidence of any explosion in the air during that time frame. Of course who knows who or what their source is.
    This keeps getting more mysterious as the days move on.

    That's meaningless...The ring sound is not generated at the phone, but by the system. It can be ringing while the system is looking for the phone so that the caller does not simply have dead air while waiting for the system to find the phone.

    Looks, like it took a few days for that story with cellphones...

    Internet isn't that slow in asia - it could be over the net a couple days ago, if it cellphones were still ringing...

    As I said, it's not the phones ringing, it is the cellular system generating a ring tone while it tries to connect to the phone. Try this experiment - I just did - turn off your phone, and remove the SIM card. Then dial your number from another phone and see what happens. When I did, it "rang" four times before going to voice mail. After re-installing the SIM card, and turning the phone on - so the system could find it again - and back off, when I dialed from my home phone, it went right to voice mail. The reports of passengers' cell phones ringing are no indication of their fate, only that the cellular system can't find the phone on the network.

    So much speculation. Media makes it so much worse. Let them find the aircraft of the wreckage and black boxes.

    Media are a bunch of of people who get paid to write stories...Just like a pilot is paid to operate an aircraft....

    I do most likely to believe planefinders people or who are involved with aviation in such cases, but not media speculations....

    Nick, there are no black boxes and wreckage. ;) Tin foil hat on.

    Seriously, either its some really well put together hijacking or its in the water. its simply amazing that with all our tech, we still can lose such large objects.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Yep Dick Cheny has in his garage right next to AA77. Yes the fact we haven't found one single piece is amazing.

    Kinda amazed that this topic is so silent, especially that it's now known the transponder was manually shut off and the plane kept flying for five hours according to radar pings.

    IIRC the transponder only gives altitude? This plane could have been tracked with radar even if the military had to be called. They have no idea where it traveled or where it is. Shame..
