Single Status Update
as a person who studies mechanical engineering and jetengiens for a living, how one of the safest planes in modern history vanishes, without crew intervention is beyond me

I know lad its crazy
Transponder shut off, and flying bellow radar I presume. Latest update is the plane flew west.
yea and with a 777 redundancy that can only be done by someone on the plane, i've been waiting for the release of ACARS data for last few days to see what that indicates the engines were doing after that time, however lots of people misunderstand civilian radar, it dosn't pick up radar signals like a military search and track, it is dependant on transponder data, if the transponder what shutoff, it drops of civilian ATC radar screens however it for all well and purposes could still be flying, wait and see what ACARS says
