I could see it happening in other countries as well, not everywhere is as crazy about airport and airplane security as the US. In the statements about the girls being let into the cockpit, it doesn't state that it was illegal or against flight regs to do so, only that it was against company policy.

Another possible scenario is that China, using their newest biological weapon, the Beijing Smog, inadvertently sent some of its weaponized smog to south of Thailand, where, during night time, the plane was traveling on auto pilot.

The auto pilot, as it is American made, realized the dangers and military might of the Chinese when it encountered the smog, it suddenly turned tail and turned off its radio as to remain stealthy and not be seen by Chinese communist communications, unfortunately it was already tagged by a chinese frigate who were dumping dead chinese bodies off the coast of thailand (which someday will become part of China as well because chinese heritage was dumped here). When the Russian made chinese radar realized the American plane has turned tail and was leaving its missile range, the chinese frigate fired Russian made Ship to Airplane Missiles and took down the clearly inferior made American plane. The pilot was talking actively to the co-pilot about the co-pilot's wife, and how he teared her on the weekend to notice the RWR blinking, signalling it's time to release the chinese made Chaff and activate the CIWS.

Meanwhile, Malaysia, noticing that their human trafficking scheme of stealing passports and giving it to other people is in peril, erased some data about the flight so it might give them some time to re align their schemes.

I really find this hard to believe. The doors to cockpits on commercial flights within North America are closed, locked, and alarmed. Private flights, sure, all bets are off, but I have been on 46 flights in the last two years, most of which were up front and with a good view of the cockpit door, and I have NEVER so much as even seen the door opened for a split second while in flight.

There was one flight which was an international flight on a 747-400 and what they did was when the pilot had to come out to use the bathroom, they had a locking metal gate that closed off the hallway to the rest of the plane which allowed the pilot to get from the opened cockpit door to the bathroom without anybody else having access to that area, if that makes sense.

domestic flights don't always have their doors shut. Ive been on a few domestic flights where the pilots had the doors open the whole flight and I could see all their lights blinking and such

Hmm, I only fly on AC and only on the big wide body planes, is it possible that this is Westjet or another carrier? I am kinda curious now as I'd love to see that but I've never seen it in real life...

Wait, was the plane in the air, or still on the ground? I see the doors open before takeoff and after landing, but this is on little planes, not big jets. I'm guessing the rules for a Dash 8 and a 747 are gonna be different? Since I doubt the smaller planes have that gate should the pilot need the bathroom.

Don't know if this has been posted or not. But an oil rig worker sent the following email...

Quote:
TORONTO – An oil rig worker claimed he saw the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 crash while working off the south coast of Vietnam, according to a report.

Bob Woodruff, an ABC News correspondent, obtained a copy of an email the man said he sent to his employer stating he witnessed the crash.

I've seen a flight attendant use the trolley cart to block the entrance of the galley when they let the pilot out to use the bathroom. She would also stand behind the trolley to enforce it as a precautionary measure.

On 100+ flights in my life I have NEVER seen that happen. Not even on the shitty little prop planes that Air Canada uses for short hop flights.

You will not find any major carrier with an open cockpit door in Canada. If your flying on a Beech 1900, on Central Mountain Air, or Georgian into Cranbrook or Red Deer. You might be right. because there is no door. The only time the door is open is when they have to use the can, they are getting fed or just need to chat up the F/A's.

Any 705 (Airline - 19 seats and up if I remember the regs correctly) operator, whether a Dash 8 or an A380 must have the door closed and locked from the second the main cabin door is closed, and technically until it is opened (Although many times it gets opened when parked, and the cabin door is still closed).

The only time I could see this happening, is if the pilots own kid is on the flight, or a really close friends child. Completely illegal, but I could see it happening if the pilot wanted to put his job on the line to make a kid smile. Idiot. lol

But how often would you have looked up there? Most of the time I just sit there watching the screens in the seats or doing my own thing.

Flying from YVR to cabo with sunwing I was sitting first row isle seat

There was at least two times the cockpit door opened where if I had just jumped up and took three steps I could have been in the cockpit with little resistance

I found it somewhat disconcerning lol

For starters he sent it from a hotmail account to a gmail account (good job blurring out his info, stupid media), how many companies running oil rigs use gmail? He goes into all kinds of detail but then doesn't disclose an exact time, he just says "the timing is right". As much as it would be helpful if this is true, it wouldn't surprise me if this is fake.
