MH370: Why air crash investigator questions if captain ‘forgot to turn on pressurisation’

MH370 left Kuala Lumpur Airport on March 8, 2014, destined for Beijing, China with 239 passengers on board. However, the jet last communicated with air traffic control at 1.19am, before mysteriously vanishing over the South China Sea. Radar and satellite data shows how the aircraft suddenly changed course and flew back across Malaysia before turning south of Penang and then towards the southern Indian Ocean – a move that many experts have looked into. 

Some have suggested it proves the captain – Zaharie Shah – made a final goodbye gesture to his home town of Penang.

However, leading air crash investigator Christine Negroni has an alternative theory, claiming Mr Shah actually suffered from hypoxia.

This is a condition in which the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply at the tissue level and causes a person to become disorientated, before essentially passing out.

Ms Negroni questions in her book “The Crash Detectives” if this situation occurred after Mr Shah forgot to turn on the jet’s pressurisation switch. 

She wrote in 2016: “An inability to get enough oxygen into the lungs to sustain cogent thought happens when aircrafts lose pressurisation, and that can happen for a variety of reasons. 

“It can be triggered by an electrical problem or some mechanical difficulty. 

“Pilots sometimes fail to turn the pressurisation on at the beginning of the flight, but even when the pressurisation is working as it should, there’s no way to keep a plane pressurised if there is a hole in the fuselage or if leaks at the seals of doorways, windows, or drains from the galley and bathrooms allow the denser air to escape.

“When aircrafts fail to pressurise after takeoff or lose cabin altitude in flight, it is potentially life-threatening. 

“The reason we don’t see tragedies more often is that pilots are taught what to do.”

Ms Negroni revealed how in this situation, a pilot should fly to a lower altitude and switch the pressurisation on.

However, Mr Shah may have been incapacitated.

She added: “There are many cases of pilots discovering that they failed to set cabin altitude upon takeoff.

“If pressurisation was set correctly and is still not working, pilots immediately begin a rapid descent to an altitude where supplemental oxygen is not necessary. 

“When pilots do not follow these steps, the situation spins out of control quickly.

“To be clear, pilots don’t intentionally ignore the procedures, when they do it is usually because their mental processes are already compromised by oxygen starvation.”

However, this idea is just one theory among hundreds of others proposed over the last five years.

Some state the plane was hijacked, either by terrorists on board or through remote cyber hacking.

While more outrageous ideas have claimed the plane was a “flying bomb” due to the cargo of five tonnes of mangosteens and 221kg of lithium-ion batteries.

Over the years there have been all sorts of claims over possible sightings, from Maldive islanders to oil rig workers in Vietnam.

However, we are still no closer to knowing the truth.

Orange Seagull Is Actually Covered In Curry Powder

A seagull was found last week covered in curry powder and … orange you wondering how it happened?

So are the employees at the animal wildlife hospital where the seagull was taken after it was found alongside a highway near Buckinghamshire, U.K., on July 1, according to CBS News.

It seems the brightly colored bird somehow got doused in turmeric and was unable to fly as a result.

The bird was taken to nearby Tigglywinkles wildlife hospital, where veterinary workers gave the seagull a bath and a name: “Vinny,” in honor of vindaloo curry, according to CNN.

Turns out Vinny was healthy despite having an odor that vets described as “pungent.” 

Vinny has since been released back into the wild, according to a post on the hospital’s Facebook page.

This isn’t the first time a bird has been found covered in curry.

In 2016, a seagull in Wales fell into a pot of tikka masala and ended up looking like a sunburned rubber chicken until vets scrubbed the bird clean, according to CBS News.

MH370 shock: Final disturbing moments revealed in flight data analysis, experts claim

The Malaysia Airlines 370 plane went missing in March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. While many still speculate over what happened on board, French investigators believe a murder-suicide is the most plausible explanation for the crash. Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was reportedly depressed at the time.

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was reportedly depressed at the time.

A source from the investigations team told Le Parisian: “Some abnormal turns made by the 777 can only be done manually. So someone was at the helm.

“It is too early to state categorically. But nothing is credited that anyone else could have entered the cockpit.”

Aviation experts have suggested the plane was hijacked, stolen or suffered a systems failure.

After its disappearance, search operations began in the Indian ocean but the Boeing 777 has never been found.

US aviation writer William Langewiesche said Mr Shah was often lonely and sad during the flight.

He wrote in The Atlantic: “There is a strong suspicion among investigators in the aviation and intelligence communities that he was clinically depressed.”

Mr Langewiesche went on to claim Mr Shah reheated the crash in a flight simulator.

While investigating the flight simulator, Dr Victor Iannello revealed that of all the flight simulations the pilot ran, the one closest to MH370 was not a continuous flight.

Every other experiment involved Mr Zaharie taking off with the airplane and landing.

However, with the plane profile that matched MH370, the captain continually jumped forward before releasing some fuel until it was all used up.

Dr Iannello believes that the near identical simulation was the captain’s way of replicating his fatal crash.

MH370 spotted? ‘Fireball’ seen in the sky near where Malaysia Airlines plane vanished

Malaysia Airlines flight 370 disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. When it disappeared from air traffic control radar it was flying over the South China Sea near Vietnam. Mike McKay, an oil rig worker from New Zealand, spotted what he thought was MH370 in the area.

According to Channel 5’s documentary ‘Flight MH370’ there was a “flurry of sightings”.

The documentary listed this sighting, saying: “An oil rig worker sees a fireball in the sky near where the plane is thought to have disappeared.”

Mr McKay, 57, had been taking a smoke break when he thought he saw the aircraft.

He tried to contact Malaysian and Vietnamese authorities about his sighting but did not receive a response, so he sent an email to his employers.

He wrote: “I believe I saw the Malaysia Airlines plane come down. The timing is right.

“I am on the oil rig ‘Songa-Mercur’ off Vung Tau. I observed (the plane?) burning at high altitude.”

The email was then leaked to the media, including his name and place of work.

After it was published, the rig operator Idemitsu and the rig owner Songa were overwhelmed with media inquiries that overloaded their means of communication.

Unfortunately, due to this, Mr McKay lost his job and was still out of work in 2016, according to Stuff.

He said it’s because “no one is looking for oil at the moment” but said he is enjoying his time off.

According to the Kiwi, Vietnamese authorities did send a search and rescue flight from Vung Tau but the operation stood down when another lead turned up.

Whilst at the time Mr McKay reported his sighting the plane was believed to have disappeared over the South China Sea, evidence from military radar and data from a satellite later revealed the plane flew south over the Indian Ocean.

In 2016, Mr McKay said: “Of course, I ended up looking like a fool.

“But what happened to me is of no consequence considering those who lost family on the flight.

“I sent an observation in a confidential email hoping it would help find the loved ones of the families.

“This was leaked to the media. I saw something but the distance from the last known position make my observation being the plane unlikely under the generally accepted route the plane took after contact was lost.”

Area 51: More than 600,000 vow to storm ‘alien’ base – but they may get a shock

“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.”

Naruto is a reference to a popular Japanese anime character.

So far, 639,000 people have confirmed their attendance on Facebook – almost exactly the population of .

The idea also attracted significant interest from people posting on the #area51raid hashtag.

Nevertheless, one social media user pointed out a potential flaw, tweeting: “You do realise there are signs all around #area51 that state ‘Use of Deadly Force is AUTHORIZED’.

“‘FYI it’s not a joke or a suggestion. #idiots.’”

Area 51, located roughly 80 miles north-north-west of Las Vegas, is a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, and the correct names for the facility are in fact Homey Airport and Groom Lake, with the popular name coming from a CIA document dating back to the Vietnam War.

Little is know about what its actual purpose is, though historical evidence suggests it is a development site for experimental aircraft and weaponry with the US Government only acknowledging its existence for the first time in 2005 as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request.

The site has been the subject of for decades, particularly among UFO conspiracy theorists, and is a popular tourist destination, with State Route 376 (SR375) now officially designated the Extraterrestrial Superhighway by the State of Arizona.

The website states: “This is a military base approximately 80 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada.

“To the USA government, this is simply the Nevada Test and Training Range.

“For the majority who have been influenced by the theories revealed through Magazines, TV and website reference call it .

“Why is the base restricted to the public? Why do you find on the ground stern signs and armed guards patrolling the fenced perimeters?

“Why do you encounter threatening warnings from air traffic control tower? Maybe the area 51 secrets are too heavy for the public.

“It is believed that Area 51 is that place where scientists reverse-engineered alien technology.

“This is the same technology that was recovered from the crashed saucer in Mexico.

“However, no reports have come out to reveal whether the Pentagon has made use of the advanced technology.”

Alien artefacts found on Mars in NASA images is PROOF of extraterrestrials – shock claim

hunters claim to have found “mechanical devices” on Mars which are “clear indications” that intelligent extraterrestrials live, or lived, there. While browsing NASA images, eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists spotted two strange objects in the dusty terrain. One of the objects looks like a jar which has fallen on its side, but the object also looks as if it has machinery on it. Another of the objects looks similar to a radiator.

Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring wrote on the blog ET Database: “Here are some cool ancient alien artefacts. The objects are clear indications that intelligent beings once thrived on this planet.

“One of the objects has a jar shape, but is fallen over on its side. It not a jar of course, its clear that its more high tech than that with all its pipes and tubes moving down its side.

“It looks very similar to a lot of jars seen recored from old roman digs. The other object has a lot layers and was obviously some kind of mechanical device.”

Another recent finding was that of a large black rock which was supposedly such strong evidence of alien life that NASA was accused of misleading the public.

Mr Waring wrote on his blog: “While looking at the front page of the Mars Science Laboratory website, I noticed that they placed a photo with a huge black fossil right on the freaking front page!

“How could anyone who has any experience at ancient fossils and artefacts have even possibly have missed that?”

However, sceptics and NASA would say the object and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.

This would mean that the Martian ‘artefacts’ are likely just misshapen rocks

Alien life on Mars PROOF? ‘Ancient alien technology found’ in NASA Mars Curiosity photo

NASA’s Curiosity Rover has been exploring Mars since it landed inside the Red Planet’s Gale Crater in August 2012. The NASA Mars rover has since then covered 12.99 miles (20.91km) for its primary objective to identify biosignatures of basic molecular life. But an intelligent alien life conspiracy theorist now believes Curiosity has uncovered conclusive photographic proof that technologically advanced alien life once existed on Mars.

Whatsupinthesky27 Youtube channel’s presenter Will claims to have discovered an object resembling part of a statue amongst the desolate Martian landscape.

He said: “What makes this really interesting is you have a connecting block resembling a Rubik’s Cube to its top left.”

He goes on to speculate his latest “find” is yet more evidence of ancient, possibly now extinct, alien activity on Mars.

He said: “Mars got destroyed by something. Some people say it was an interplanetary war, others say it was an asteroid. But something jacked it-up.

“This was definitely an area which had water.

“Obviously we know something was on Mars and the Moon.”

Well-known UFO conspiracy theorist Scott Waring hosted the video on his popular site.

And Mr Waring shares Whatsupinthesky27’s outlandish interpretation for the rock-shaped anomaly.

He wrote: “The object is a clear indication intelligent beings once thrived on this planet.

“One of the objects has a jar shape that has fallen on its side.

“It not a jar of course, its clear that its more high tech than that with all its pipes and tubes moving down its side.

“It has a lot layers and was obviously some kind of mechanical device.”

Along with pointing out the oddly-shaped anomaly among the Red Planet’s rubble, Whatsupinthesky27 also critiques the apparent blurring of areas in this image and others on Mars.

The YouTube presenter said: “They don’t seem to be here for any reason at all, other than either NASA put them there or Curiosity’s camera just can’t deal with them.

“I have always said, any time you get these straight blur lines, the images appear to have been doctored.

“Every time we see these blur marks, it upsets me, because who knows what was there?

“Squaring off the blocks just doesn’t make any sense to me, unless it occurs automatically.”

Area 51: Has a UFO been spotted in top secret military base?

One Youtuber discovered what looks like a strange circle in the middle of a Nevada desert, leading to theories that it is a UFO located inside the top secret military base. – a high security US military post – has long been associated with alien activity, and this discovery will not do anything to dampen that conspiracy theory. In the video, uploaded by channel TheLifeBeyondEarth, the narrator gives the coordinates as 37°18’20.41”N 116°28’21.13”W.

Those coordinates when placed on Google Earth take one to a spot in a desert in Nevada where a white circle can be seen.

Popular conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring believes the location is inside top-secret military base Area 51.

Mr Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “Using Google Ruler we see that the is 31.36 feet across or 9.5 meters. Its shadow is 8.15 meters across or 27.8 feet across.

“The UFO is 36.17 miles (58.22 km) from Area 51.

“The area where this UFO is hovering at is all part of Area 51 which covers hundreds of square miles. I checked out the UFOs on Google earth and they are there.”

However, many people commented saying that they were not buying into Mr Waring’s theory.

Youtuber VWman100 said: “If you look at the images on Google Earth, and scroll through times and years, they’re still there, so it’s obviously fake or some kind of structure.”

Man Goes Under Knife To Turn Himself Into Real-Life ‘Parrotman’

Ted Richards loves parrots.

In fact, the resident of Bristol, U.K., is so batty for the birds that he has gone through extensive and extreme body modification surgery to look like them.

First, the self-described “Parrotman” had his face tattooed to look like he has feathers in the five colors of his parrots.

Then he risked going blind by having his eyes colored with tattoo ink.

After that, he had his ears cut off ― a process that helped him better resemble the birds but impaired his hearing, according to an episode of “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!” that aired on Sunday night on the Travel Channel.

“Parrots only got little holes anyways, so I had them cut off,” he said in the preview clip above. “You know, it’s your body at the end of the day. You should be able to do whatever you want with it.”

Richards, who professionally goes by the name “Ted Parrotman,” admits he didn’t let the risks stop him from altering his body.

“I didn’t think about the complications, you know? I just never thought about that. Because if you looked at negative all the time, you’d never do anything,” he said.

You can see how extreme Richards’ love for birds goes in the clip above.
