Could it be because the Indonesian PM beat Obozo at the 9th hole?

Here's another missing aircraft:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_Boeing_727-223_disappearance

Wiki:

"Shortly before sunset on 25 May, two men are believed to have boarded the plane, one of them being American pilot and flight engineer Ben Charles Padilla.[5] The other was a hired mechanic from the Republic of the Congo. Neither man was certified to fly the Boeing 727, which normally requires three aircrew. Both men had been working with Angolan mechanics to get the plane flight-ready. Padilla is believed by U.S. authorities to have been at the controls.[6]

The aircraft began taxiing without communicating with the control tower. It maneuvered erratically and entered a runway without clearance. The tower tried to make contact, but there was no response, and the trackingtransponder was turned off. With its lights off, the aircraft took off, heading southwest over the Atlantic Ocean. Neither the plane nor the two men have been seen since.[7]"

Sounds like a mass Alien abduction.  

Are we at the point of history, where the USSA declares  that we are under attack from Greys, and we must unite under One Obama to fight of the threat?

Rafter, How is it possible Ive never heard of that? amazing

Interesting part about it is that if somebody wants to find you, they can do it even if you've been locked away in Grandma's old unplugged Maytag freezer in her basement with no air for 7 years, but a missing aireoplane?  Not a fucking clue, idea, chance, golly gee wiz, it's a goner.
Anybody but me think that something here.... oh neverthefuckmind

The areas in which this and the Malay plane disappeared are some of the most highly electronically scrutinized on the globe and yet....

Fuck this.

There are gay baths or clubs in Malaysia... and that is not so far if conservative Indonesian serfs don't put out... or if the clubs & baths suck.

Would some so called military type please tell the NWO to knock it off already with the planes? Yes we get it--they have all kinds of weird toys to dazzle the radars and make the planes "disappear" to one of their swamps, and they have their media pole dancers to sell their fairy tales to the rest of us. We get it. They got our attention with the other two. Please stop it.

Yes, that must be it.

 

The Indonesians have had a pretty good run for a few years.   Although they did have to smoke a few on consecutive months in 2007 to get there.   Apparently 7 years is the industry memory span:

Indonesia

 

But, on a positive note, the safety fault ban on Indonesian airlines flying to the EU has been partially lifted:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_airlines_of_Indonesia

"The safety-related ban on Indonesian airlines fly to European Union countries has been partially lifted since 2009 with Garuda Indonesia, Airfast Indonesia, Mandala Airlines, Express Transportasi Antarbenua, Indonesia AirAsia and Batavia Air being taken off the list. On April 21, 2011 the EU lifted the ban of Cardig Air, Republic Express, Asia Link and Air Maleo - all being cargo carriers. The ban had been imposed after a string of accidents[6]"

News for nutbars like you heywood2...

 

There is modern technology speeding around the Earth, in orbit, at roughly 18,500 mph. Many of these Aluminium Framed technological marvels are filled with sensors which detect electromagnetic radiation emanting from global locations. They have been known to be able to detect ICBM launches and track warhead trajectories...even in inclement weather.

 

They have the capability of tracking much slower aircraft. They read radiological signals emanating from those aircraft in the form of Microwaves and even the longer Radio Waves.

 

These devices have been placed into the orbits, by Governments, at the cost of roughly TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS PER POUND. There are hundreds of them in Low Earth Orbit currently.

 

You may have heard or read about them. They are called Satellites?

 

AIRPLANES RARELY GET LOST IN TODAY'S WORLD.

 

Only total WHACKOS...note the spelling...are living in a World without understanding the technological development brought about by the World's Space Exploration Programs. We have been orbiting satellites for the past 57 YEARS. That is two years longer than I have been alive.

Heywood2 is a card-carrying zionist war-mongering savage so the fact that he jumps into this thread with his usual chant of wackoism reveals that his tribe is most likely, as usual involved in the disappearance. They must have something extremely sinister up their collective sleeve by collecting all of these missing planes, probably doing a quick organ harvest from the passengers first.

Indonesian national search and rescue radars haven’t detected signals from the emergency location transmitter, says Sutrisno, the head of Basarnas, the national agency in Jakarta, as cited by Detik.com. The transmitter becomes operational once a plane is struck from outside or falls into the water. Either the plane managed to land smoothly or the transmitter was defective, the official says.

Was the transmitter manufactured by Takata?

heywood2,

Understand something. They are not saying the plane crashed. They are saying it disappeared. Nothing disappears, not a plane, not a mosquito. Something bad happened to it and the creeps who run this country know exactly were it is and in what condition. Every man made means of transportation in the air, on land, and underwater can be tracked. Your car and cell phone can be tracked. Everything is tracked. The NWO is in panic mode and doing things that they always kept carefully hidden thus giving us a glimpse at the depth of their depravity.

Russia Shoots Down Santa’s Sleigh Near North Pole

According to local reports, the sleigh was beginning its annual Christmas Eve journey around the world when it was struck by a surface-to-air missile fired from the Russian island of Novaya Zemlya, just a few hundred miles from the North Pole. Santa and nearly all of his reindeer were killed instantly. 

Norwegian fisherman soon located the debris field in the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean. Images of the debris aired on CNN and other international news networks show broken limbs, teddy bears, and gift wrapping strewn throughout the sea.

Although Russia has officially denied involvement in the incident, U.S. intelligence forces say they have proof the missile was fired from a Russian military installation on the island. Several ultra-nationalist politicians in Moscow have praised the downing, which targeted a popular Western celebrity.

isn't all this missing plane stuff getting kinda old?  I don't think I can muster the attention span for another one.

kowalli said:  "Let's blame Russia for this like we always do/s"

Yup.  "This Week with George Stephanopolous" yearly "Game Changers" segment this morning showed the wreckage of the passenger flight over Ukraine with this narrative:  "The plane was shot down by Ukrainian Separatists using a Russian anti-aircraft missile."

Funny, I haven't heard the black box or air traffic control tapes yet.

Russian satellite images of a fighter jet firing an air-to-air missile, and testimony from a Ukrainian ground crew member that a pilot said he fired a missile and commented "they were in the wrong place at the wrong time" are completely ignored.

The U.S. has a fine propaganda agency in the guise of journalists in the M.S.M.
