MH370 hijacked by Russians?

According to Jeff Wise, Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was hijacked by three Russian passengers and flown to Kazakhstan. Maybe sponsored by Putin himself?

This is more plausible than the plane flying to the middle of nowhere over the Indian Ocean, which makes no psychological sense. Why would anyone do that?

  1. Could of been the Russians or the Chi-Comms, I know the Cartoon Network [CNN] said it was a black hole

    I am only speculating here and your guess is as good as mine but allow me. A certain Yankie president and his crew was convicted of war crimes by Malaysia

    Means Money Motive – Perhaps they were ‘sending a message’ gangster style

    As a side note

    An oil rig worker who was notoriously fired for saying he believed he saw MH370 “come down” today insisted he thinks the official search for the Malaysian jet is happening in the wrong place.

    In his first detailed interview since he sent out an email to officials relaying what he thought might be the Boeing 777 aircraft, Mike McKay, 57, told MailOnline: “Almost a year has passed, but I stand by what I saw.

    “I’ve thought about it and thought about it, over and over and while I cannot say for certain that the burning object in the sky was definitely MH370, the timing fits in with when the Malaysian plane lost contact. I have been trying to disprove that what I saw was the aeroplane ever since.”

    The Java Sea and the Strait of Malacca. Some of the busiest shipping lanes and air space in the world. Also some of the most heavily surveilled – Radar, Satellite, Military and Civiliain

    Question – Who has the power to disappear a commercial flight and cover it up???

    • If nothing else, your post is correct about the surveillance. Certainly between the US, China, UK, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, etc. All those billions spent on satellites, radars, social media monitoring and who knows what else … they know exactly what happened to this plane. They just don’t want to reveal the extent of their observation, or the nature of it.

  3. Oh man, I am so bored with this story.

    There’s another conspiracy theory that this was Mossad and part of some plot to… whatever, I don’t know. But then, when I go to the store to buy milk somebody on the internet blames the Mossad. And just because they actually ARE behind a lot of stuff, that doesn’t mean they’re behind everything.

    • There weren’t any Israeli passengers on the plane, and the plane couldn’t have made it to an Israeli controlled runway.

  4. That is a stupid theory, and I read the whole article.

    (1) MH370 was full of Chinese and had very few westerners on board. China and Russia are allies, and Russia would not do that to its ally. If Russia needs something from China it only has to ask.

    (2) The Russians had supposedly just started a furniture company. One of them had a lumber company. Actually China is exactly where you’d want to be if you have a bunch of lumber (which Russia has in abundance) and you want to apply value transference principles to become richer and move up the chain. If the company looks like a shell that’s because it kind of was. It was a startup and they probably were just trying to figure out this whole value transference game with China on trips such as this, as had countless Europeans before them. Probably the Russian guy with the lumber company was doing okay but hated that people would take his wood and turn around and sell finished goods for orders of magnitude more. He was traveling first class because he actually was small-time successful in lumber, while the two in the back were probably his lackeys in this hopeful venture to become value-transferers.

    (3) What on Earth does Russia need with a 777? It can buy as many as it wants.

    (4) It is not trivial to get rid of that many people when surely 100% of them have cell phones and probably tons of other gadgets.

    (5) One of pilots of the MH370 was apparently raging mad about his country and suspicious things showed up at his place. I often drive off in my car for a while in a random direction after a fight with my wife and I am not surprised at all that a pilot would do this when he is mad.

    • 6) two of these suspects are not “Russians” – they’re Ukrainians from Odessa. But Ukraine is a part of Russia, right? 🙂

      Wait… they’re from Odessa! That means they’re probably Jews – and you know what this means? The Jooos did it!!!


      February 28, 2015 at 5:29 PM

    • China and Russia are not “allies”. Russia is trying to make China an ally but China doesn’t really need Russia badly enough to consider it an ally. China won’t “give” Russia anything, although they might sell Russia things for the right price. Agreed though that it would be mighty odd for Russia to piss China off in the current environment.

  5. As of Feb. 25th, 2015, 9,300 square miles of seafloor was searched (Wikipedia). The Indian Ocean is 28.4 million square miles.

  6. That was a fun read. Even more fun was his article at this link:

    He should become a fiction writer of international intrigue. He certainly has the ability to tell an exciting story.

    I’m not convinced though.

  7. It probably crashed when it ran out of gas. WRT the article…

    1. “To the best of my knowledge, this airstrip is the only one in the world built specifically for self-landing airplanes”. Actually, there are thousands. Including Fresno and Des Moines, for example.

    2, “Courtney Love, posting on her Facebook time line a picture of the shimmering blue sea, wrote: “I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick”. Agreed, AFAIK Courtney is no expert. But there’s Jeff Baxter, so who knows?

    3. “If perpetrators got in there, a long shot”. Not a long shot if hijackers had control of the cabin.

    4. “It’s not possible to spoof the BFO data on just any plane”. You steal one from another aircraft of the same type, or more likely from a parts supply, just like when you steal aircraft radios.

    5. “There aren’t a lot of places to land a plane as big as the 777″. If you’re not concerned with getting back in the air, you can land on a 4000′ runway. Or a road, though that would probably do a lot of damage (to the road). 6000′ if you want to get back in the air after getting rid of pax/baggage/cargo.

    6. ” It is a maneuver that only a sophisticated operator would know how to execute”. Or any A&P qualified to work on 777 avionics; not exactly a rare commodity.

    7. “Remember the satcom system disconnected and then rebooted three minutes after the plane left military radar behind”. Spoofing it with one transmitting from the ground or another airplane would be a good way to leave the impression 370 was still in the air.

    I’m reasonably certain 370 crashed, but I don’t think hijacking would be anywhere near as difficult or sophisticated as people think. The question is why.

  8. The part of this theory that makes no sense is why they wouldn’t claim credit for such an act. Terrorism only works if the people you are trying to terrorize know you exist and fear you. By making a plane seemingly vanish does nothing to further their cause.


    February 28, 2015 at 4:17 PM

    • Exactly my point about it making no psychological sense to fly a plane to the middle of the ocean. If someone wanted to commit suicide, he could have just committed suicide by shooting himself. Terrorists want people to know about their act of terrorism. Hijackers want to take the plane somewhere and not into the middle of the ocean, which is why I think that the plane must have flown north. The reason no one spotted it on radar is because third-world countries have crappy radar.

      • But terrorists also want the victim to know why they did the action. By keeping it secret of what really happened, you defeat that purpose. So what have they gained by taking the plane and hiding it in bumblefuck Russia?


        March 1, 2015 at 1:54 AM

      • For Lion – 370 didn’t need to evade RADAR, only make those operating it believe they were somebody else.

        For Sol – The fact we don’t know what happened doesn’t mean it’s been kept secret from a victim/target.

  9. [A Russian hijacking] is more plausible than the plane flying to the middle of nowhere over the Indian Ocean…

    Not really.

  10. This is more plausible than the plane flying to the middle of nowhere over the Indian Ocean, which makes no psychological sense. Why would anyone do that?

    Your relentless trolling of your readership can’t be praised enough. However, exceptional a skill though it is, trolling can’t change the fact MH370 crashed, or, less likely, landed somewhere near the Indian Ocean after the pilots had a ‘Come to Allah’ moment.

    • There was no indication that either pilot was a jihadist type, and if they wanted to commit suicide why not just crash the plane instead of flying it for 7 hours until it ran out of fuel?

    • There was no indication that either pilot was a jihadist type,

      One of them was angry about his nation’s politics.

      why not just crash the plane instead of flying it for 7 hours until it ran out of fuel?

      Their maneuvers such as flying below radar and disabling emergency signals were designed to hide their path and location. There’s also no indication of a fight for control of the cockpit between the pilots and hijackers.

      Why evade radar instead of just nose diving right away? Presumably because they wanted to prevent investigators from finding the wreckage, or tried to land somewhere.

    • While I do think “the Lion” does some trolling on this blog, I think his more cynical readers would be surprised at how much of what they assume to be trolling was written in earnest.


      February 28, 2015 at 11:15 PM

      • That would be a much more interesting discussion than this nonsense.

        We’ll rarely know for sure. Lion usually doesn’t reveal when he’s serious.

        That would be a much more interesting discussion than this nonsense.

        This nonsense is designed to lead to that discussion. Subterfuge like this is what’s vaulted Lion to the heights of Wall Street power.

  11. The motive for highjacking the plane would the high value people who were targets on it. The main difficulty would have been disposing of all the other passengers. A ruthless enough intelligence agency would just kill them, a less ruthless one would disappear them into some gulag.

    Either the United States (via Diego Garcia), Russia, or China had the means and motive to highjack the plane. I suspect China, but it could be any of the three.


    February 28, 2015 at 7:32 PM

    • It’s not so far fetched. ISIS is using black market organ trafficking to fund its endeavors. A harvestable human body would yield 100k+ on the black market. Putting the value of the 239 passengers in the 25million range.

      • Didn’t the plane ascend to high enough elevation to kill the passengers by starving them of oxygen before it was lost? Long periods of limited or no oxygen are bad for transplantable organs.

  12. Even Ukrainian propaganda has not stooped to such idiocy.

  13. I’m reminded of the adage that if you hear hoofbeats you should presume it’s a horse even though it theoretically could be a zebra. Just because an unlikely sounding theory could be true doesn’t mean it is.
