remember MH370 ?

A Startlingly Simple Theory About the Missing Malaysia Airlines Jet

Image: Pedro Moura Pinheiro/Flickr
Image: Pedro Moura Pinheiro/Flickr
There has been a lot of speculation about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Terrorism, hijacking, meteors. I cannot believe the analysis on CNN; it’s almost disturbing. I tend to look for a simpler explanation, and I find it with the 13,000-foot runway at Pulau Langkawi.
We know the story of MH370: A loaded Boeing 777 departs at midnight from Kuala Lampur, headed to Beijing. A hot night. A heavy aircraft. About an hour out, across the gulf toward Vietnam, the plane goes dark, meaning the transponder and secondary radar tracking go off. Two days later we hear reports that Malaysian military radar (which is a primary radar, meaning the plane is tracked by reflection rather than by transponder interrogation response) has tracked the plane on a southwesterly course back across the Malay Peninsula into the Strait of Malacca.
The left turn is the key here. Zaharie Ahmad Shah1 was a very experienced senior captain with 18,000 hours of flight time. We old pilots were drilled to know what is the closest airport of safe harbor while in cruise. Airports behind us, airports abeam us, and airports ahead of us. They’re always in our head. Always. If something happens, you don’t want to be thinking about what are you going to do–you already know what you are going to do. When I saw that left turn with a direct heading, I instinctively knew he was heading for an airport. He was taking a direct route to Palau Langkawi, a 13,000-foot airstrip with an approach over water and no obstacles. The captain did not turn back to Kuala Lampur because he knew he had 8,000-foot ridges to cross. He knew the terrain was friendlier toward Langkawi, which also was closer.
Take a look at this airport on Google Earth. The pilot did all the right things. He was confronted by some major event onboard that made him make an immediate turn to the closest, safest airport.
The loss of transponders and communications makes perfect sense in a fire.
When I heard this I immediately brought up Google Earth and searched for airports in proximity to the track toward the southwest.
For me, the loss of transponders and communications makes perfect sense in a fire. And there most likely was an electrical fire. In the case of a fire, the first response is to pull the main busses and restore circuits one by one until you have isolated the bad one. If they pulled the busses, the plane would go silent. It probably was a serious event and the flight crew was occupied with controlling the plane and trying to fight the fire. Aviate, navigate, and lastly, communicate is the mantra in such situations.
There are two types of fires. An electrical fire might not be as fast and furious, and there may or may not be incapacitating smoke. However there is the possibility, given the timeline, that there was an overheat on one of the front landing gear tires, it blew on takeoff and started slowly burning. Yes, this happens with underinflated tires. Remember: Heavy plane, hot night, sea level, long-run takeoff. There was a well known accident in Nigeria of a DC8 that had a landing gear fire on takeoff. Once going, a tire fire would produce horrific, incapacitating smoke. Yes, pilots have access to oxygen masks, but this is a no-no with fire. Most have access to a smoke hood with a filter, but this will last only a few minutes depending on the smoke level. (I used to carry one in my flight bag, and I still carry one in my briefcase when I fly.)
What I think happened is the flight crew was overcome by smoke and the plane continued on the heading, probably on George (autopilot), until it ran out of fuel or the fire destroyed the control surfaces and it crashed. You will find it along that route–looking elsewhere is pointless.
Ongoing speculation of a hijacking and/or murder-suicide and that there was a flight engineer on board does not sway me in favor of foul play until I am presented with evidence of foul play.
We know there was a last voice transmission that, from a pilot’s point of view, was entirely normal. “Good night” is customary on a hand-off to a new air traffic control. The “good night” also strongly indicates to me that all was OK on the flight deck. Remember, there are many ways a pilot can communicate distress. A hijack code or even transponder code off by one digit would alert ATC that something was wrong. Every good pilot knows keying an SOS over the mike always is an option. Even three short clicks would raise an alert. So I conclude that at the point of voice transmission all was perceived as well on the flight deck by the pilots.
But things could have been in the process of going wrong, unknown to the pilots.
Evidently the ACARS went inoperative some time before. Disabling the ACARS is not easy, as pointed out. This leads me to believe more in an electrical problem or an electrical fire than a manual shutdown. I suggest the pilots probably were not aware ACARS was not transmitting.
As for the reports of altitude fluctuations, given that this was not transponder-generated data but primary radar at maybe 200 miles, the azimuth readings can be affected by a lot of atmospherics and I would not have high confidence in this being totally reliable. But let’s accept for a minute that the pilot may have ascended to 45,000 feet in a last-ditch effort to quell a fire by seeking the lowest level of oxygen. That is an acceptable scenario. At 45,000 feet, it would be tough to keep this aircraft stable, as the flight envelope is very narrow and loss of control in a stall is entirely possible. The aircraft is at the top of its operational ceiling. The reported rapid rates of descent could have been generated by a stall, followed by a recovery at 25,000 feet. The pilot may even have been diving to extinguish flames.
But going to 45,000 feet in a hijack scenario doesn’t make any good sense to me.
Regarding the additional flying time: On departing Kuala Lampur, Flight 370 would have had fuel for Beijing and an alternate destination, probably Shanghai, plus 45 minutes–say, 8 hours. Maybe more. He burned 20-25 percent in the first hour with takeoff and the climb to cruise. So when the turn was made toward Langkawi, he would have had six hours or more hours worth of fuel. This correlates nicely with the Inmarsat data pings being received until fuel exhaustion.
Fire in an aircraft demands one thing: Get the machine on the ground as soon as possible.
The now known continued flight until time to fuel exhaustion only confirms to me that the crew was incapacitated and the flight continued on deep into the south Indian ocean.
There is no point speculating further until more evidence surfaces, but in the meantime it serves no purpose to malign pilots who well may have been in a struggle to save this aircraft from a fire or other serious mechanical issue. Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a hero struggling with an impossible situation trying to get that plane to Langkawi. There is no doubt in my mind. That’s the reason for the turn and direct route. A hijacking would not have made that deliberate left turn with a direct heading for Langkawi. It probably would have weaved around a bit until the hijackers decided where they were taking it.
Surprisingly, none of the reporters, officials, or other pilots interviewed have looked at this from the pilot’s viewpoint: If something went wrong, where would he go? Thanks to Google Earth I spotted Langkawi in about 30 seconds, zoomed in and saw how long the runway was and I just instinctively knew this pilot knew this airport. He had probably flown there many times.
Fire in an aircraft demands one thing: Get the machine on the ground as soon as possible. There are two well-remembered experiences in my memory. The AirCanada DC9 which landed, I believe, in Columbus, Ohio in the 1980s. That pilot delayed descent and bypassed several airports. He didn’t instinctively know the closest airports. He got it on the ground eventually, but lost 30-odd souls. The 1998 crash of Swissair DC-10 off Nova Scotia was another example of heroic pilots. They were 15 minutes out of Halifax but the fire overcame them and they had to ditch in the ocean. They simply ran out of time. That fire incidentally started when the aircraft was about an hour out of Kennedy. Guess what? The transponders and communications were shut off as they pulled the busses.
Get on Google Earth and type in Pulau Langkawi and then look at it in relation to the radar track heading. Two plus two equals four. For me, that is the simple explanation why it turned and headed in that direction. Smart pilot. He just didn’t have the time.
Chris Goodfellow has 20 years experience as a Canadian Class-1 instrumented-rated pilot for multi-engine planes. His theory on what happened to MH370 first appeared on Google+. We’ve copyedited it with his permission.
1CORRECTION 9:40 a.m. Eastern 03/18/14: An editing error introduced a typo in Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s name.

fear is a beast

fear of fear is more fear than fear we fear. it is the apprehension which is more unbearable than the real tragedy. so face it . it is not as bad as u thought. and it will never be as grotesque as u imagine. becoz we have a peculiar magnification formula at work. fear gets magnified  as it approaches u .  the one just in front  appears the biggest. luckily once the distance turns zero or negative it shrinks . and that is how we beat it. and survive.  so face the problem and it will recede. or shrink to the size u can handle.  remember every problem is a beast. it will chase the one who runs away . and bow a little on eye contact . happy new year

universe expanding or collapsing ?

talking about the paradox of whether the universe is expanding or contracting, i too think it is  both. like the rings on a ring rotating on their circular axis. if u look from the top it will look like  infinite outward motion. if u look from the bottom u will see only the never ending collapse or churning inwards. if u r lucky to be at the center of the main ring u can see both motions. but only  if all the rings on the ring are in synchronous motion . moving out or in at the same time which is almost an impossibility. as a result what u see even if u stand at the center is the most chaotic scene of some parts of the universe moving out and many others moving in. given the constraint that we can only see or feel or be in only  a miniscule portion of the universe we will feel the universe expanding  at some time and contracting at some other time . time here means the allotment and  the  permission  to be present in , feel or observe or interact with in any manner, a small specified portion of the universe . god knows by whom.

if time isn't real why does it appear to exist ?

1. nothing is real but they all seem to exist. so does time.

2. growth in both positive and negative directions is one phenomenon which cannot be disassociated with time real or virtual. probably our perception is hard wired to see it that way.

3. time is probably a hierarchy with god at  the top. look at an amoeba and see how we feel superior on account of the much higher time allocated to us.

4. our concept of time  probably developed from our inability to comprehend anything absolute.  or is it the other way ? we can take in only comparisons or relative observations. we have no way to detect motion except relative to another body.

5. probably the time to worry about time has not come.  and if it ever comes and if we have time at that time ....

atheism .. again

1. science is not  the last word. science told us many wrong things and later said sorry. to very many questions science is still looking at the sky and beyond with open mouths.   science is that urge to search and search but with no chance of ever finding the truth the whole truth i mean. the feeling that we are getting  nearer to the destination is a self sustaining survival technique.  it helps. even mirage has its use.

2. atheism essentially is counter theism. if theism is +6 on a scale of 10 atheism is  -6. to sustain the  fight atheism  needs to use the  same weapons  the enemy use.  and it does. like  selective use and denial of reasoning , (  i heard an atheist friend say it has to be proved to believe but lack of proof is enough to disbelieve ) commitment bordering on fascism...

3. let us try zero faith for a change . leaving a lot of space on both sides  positive and negative . try it for sustainability. do u believe ? no. disbelieve ? no . this zero space is big enough to accommodate any. not only in faith but in life

is atheism any better than theism ?

@ hugh . atheism as i understand is not the absence of belief in god. it is the belief that god doesn't exist and that believing that god exists is wrong. atheism is a negative belief. that is why i say atheism  like theism demands blind devotion.
if atheism is zero belief in god i have no quarrel . in fact i am with you.  but the fact is that it is a strong negative belief.  and that is why like theism atheism too is unsustainable.

reasoning as you  know is the process of setting a relation between cause and effect. from  theory to incident. or vice  versa.  that is , for every incident we are trying to find and fit a theory , an explanation. now the problem is that we have a finite set of explanations which we are trying to fit into an infinite set of incidents. the biggest problem however is that the set of explanations which we are boasting off is limited in quality too.  it is derived  basically from our wisdom or accumulated knowledge. to cut it short , reasoning is not a scale with which we can measure every thing. 

logic is a simple tool which we use for linking simple things . no one has ever claimed universal reach for  logic.

now for examples. how do we explain the origin of the universe ? neither theists nor atheists can help. is the universe running on weak force and strong force or some other force ? when a tiger kills a deer who is right and who is wrong ?

crux of the matter is that our ability to understand things is limited . by design. could even be divine intervention . who knows ? we are no different from the house fly which can not comprehend the existence of a window glass or the frog in the well who thinks the world is a ten feet wide circle filled with water. this is design deficiency.

so positive belief is ok . zero belief is ok . but  negative belief may  be too silly to be sustainable.

hunger in the schools

   hunger in the class room

hunger is not just a six letter word.

it is the scar deep inside.
it is the ache that goes on and on.
it is the void which never gets filled.
it is the scorn that never stops hurting.
it is the growl that any one can hear.
it is the curse that i bear on your behalf.

in the exam hall i blink and go blank
in the class room i doze off lest i faint.
in the playground i crouch to crush the cramps.
when i open the book it is to cover the tear drops.

if you want to feed my brain and not my stomach
if you want to give me books and not beans
if you want to teach me etiquette but not survival
if you want me to run and win on an empty stomach

i don't know when i will fall pulling you down

i don't know how long you can stand and stare

god is a gamer ... review

  blogadda   book review

      GOD  IS  A  GAMER

   by    Ravi  Subramanian

the best part is the climax. the fbi and the cbi
sit together and tie the knots in the long
rope to hang tanya, with professional handouts
from her lover varun. the team  replays the full
story with cuts and pastes and highlights
on the corner incidents. when the audience ,
accepting the moral inevitability of tanya
paying for her sins  gets up to move out,
the screen lights up again.

and that is a beauty. the epilogue tells us how we
have all been taken for the ride by varun the real
villain. all the characters are called back and
re examined. their contracts with varun are re read.
when they march out taking their wages in bitcoins to
play the video game mafia don we are back in the dark
in the real world where varuns roam  scotfree and tanyas
go to the gallows to appease the authorities. it is a
logical entailment that if a crime is committed then
someone should be punished.

the one reason for this book probably getting into the
best seller list is the ingenuity of varun. i have a
feeling that it is varun who thought up the whole story
and forced the author to write this book.

coming to the other highlights of the book, it is malavika's
murder that stands out as the best sub plot. with lower  limbs
turning rigid due to the effects of hemlock seeds which kill
by progressively paralysing body parts starting from the limbs
as it did to socrates 2500 years ago malavika stumbles over
the low parapet and falls to her death. even forensics
confirm suicide as hemlock poison does not turn up in such
examinations unless it is specifically tested for.

in contrast senator gillian's death is a tardy plot. and the
atm heist which takes up a large portion of the book is rather
overblown. computers all over the world blowing up due to
excess heat generated by continuous bitcoin mining which they
are bugged over the internet to do is also an example of
imagination gone wild and out of context.

as the title suggests gaming is the soul of the book. the details
are vivid and the lure is difficult to ignore. yet i did not turn
a gamer becoz though god is a gamer, he probably plays dice more
often. and in the latest throw he has probably assigned bitcoins
to me. i have already opened a vallet with .
if any of you feel like transferring a few bits ( it is one
millionth of a bitcoin current value of which is around 24,000
indian rupees ) to my wallet to help me continue this madness,
here is the address

before signing off, a few bad words to ward off the curse of
the soothsayer. the language though english is typically indian
which many natives may mistake for greek if not spanish. and a
good word to smooth the itch. sex scenes are sober and a welcome

the final word.  an enchanting thriller for the new generation.
may be this book will take you out of the  video game addiction.
not by disgracing the game. but by offering better entertainment.
much better and less addictive for sure.
