MH370: The FIVE Indian Ocean runways ‘programmed into Zaharie Shah’s flight simulator’

On March 8, 2014, flight MH370 left Kuala Lumpur Airport on route to Beijing, China, with 239 people on board. Captain Zaharie Shah was in control of the plane when it last communicated with air traffic control at 1:19am over the South China Sea. However, moments later, the plane vanished from civilian radar screens following a routine handover from Malaysian to Vietnamese channels.

Radar and satellite data shows how the jet suddenly changed course and flew back across Malaysia before turning south of Penang and then towards the southern Indian Ocean. 

Captain Zaharie Shah has come under scrutiny over the years amid claims he went on a suicide mission and took his passengers with him. 

This was fuelled in 2016 when Australian officials confirmed Mr Shah had practiced a route where the plane is said to have vanished using an in-flight simulator he built at home.

However, these practice routes did not end up with the plane at the bottom of the ocean, it has been claimed.

An unnamed source told Malaysian newspaper Berita Harian in 2014: “The simulation programmes are based on runways at the Valana International Airport in the Maldives, an airport owned by the United States (Diego Garcia), and three other runways in India and Sri Lanka, all have runway lengths of 1,000 metres.

“We are not discounting the possibility that the plane landed on a runway that might not be heavily monitored, in addition to the theories that the plane landed on the sea, in the hills, or in an open space.”

However, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), who is leading the search for the plane, did not think the find was significant. 

A spokesman said: “The simulator information shows only the possibility of planning. 

“It does not reveal what happened on the night of its disappearance nor where the aircraft is located.

“For the purposes of defining the underwater search area, the relevant facts and analysis most closely match a scenario in which there was no pilot intervening in the latter stages of the flight.”

It was previously revealed how former pilot Christopher Goodfellow believes the sudden change in direction of MH370 was no mistake.

The aviation expert believes the veteran pilot made himself well aware of all the nearby airports before a trip in case of the worse.

He believes MH70 then suffered a mid-air emergency.

He wrote in a blog post in 2014: “The turn [back across Malaysia] is key here. 

“Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a very experienced senior captain with 18,000 hours of flight time. 

“We old pilots were drilled to know what is the closest airport of safe harbour while in cruise. 

“Airports behind us, airports abeam us, and airports ahead of us – they’re always in our head, always. 

“If something happens, you don’t want to be thinking about what are you going to do, you already know what you are going to do.”

Mr Goodfellow went on to explain why he believed Mr Shah was heading for Langkawi International Airport in Malaysia, following a fire on board.

He added: “When I saw that left turn with a direct heading, I instinctively knew he was heading for that airport. 

“He was taking a direct route to Palau Langkawi, a 13,000-foot airstrip with an approach over water and no obstacles. 

“The captain did not turn back to Kuala Lumpur because he knew he had 8,000-foot ridges to cross. 

“He knew the terrain was friendlier toward Langkawi, which also was closer.”

Mars CONSPIRACY? Blue sky found on Mars – ‘Photos make NASA look like FOOLS’

Outlandish claims about the reality of life on the Red Planet were first made on the Mundo Desconocido YouTube channel. The alien life conspiracy theorists used unearthed photos taken by the NASA Mars Global Surveyor space probe in the late 1990s. And intriguing shapes found on the Martian surface were then colourised, appearing to bring to life lakes and forests on Mars.

The unnamed narrator is heard questioning whether respected US space agency NASA has been covering-up evidence of alien life on Mars.

He said: “Mars appears to be be just as beautiful as our own planet Earth.

“But if this is true, why has has this been kept secret for so long?

“This is not the first time possible plant life and water have been seen in a Mars photo, but never before at this scale.”

And another photo taken in 2008 is produced purportedly showing plant life found by ancient alien theorists.

The narrator adds: “These alleged plants were found among ancient martian sand dunes.

“Officially no life has been announced to be living on Mars yet these objects appear to be just that.

“According to scientists plants cannot survive on the Red Planet, yet many believe this is what we are seeing here.

“But after seeing this images, can there now be any doubt?

“If they are planets, or remnants of plant life why would NASA have such a hard time admitting it?”

Self-proclaimed UFO expert Scott Waring described the trove of Mars photos as “100 percent proof that Mars is more than we were told by NASA”.

He said: “Areas that appear to be shallow ponds with bushes surrounding it are evident in photos.

“Tall tree-like plants grow from cracks in the ground that probably contain water for them to thrive upon.

“A blue sky has been found in many Mars photos, making NASA look like fools.

“Sometime in our lifetime humans will get to Mars and the truth will get out.

“Until then, we only know what the public has dug-up within thin NASA archives.”

MH370 BOMBSHELL: Air traffic controllers ‘TRICKED’ by computers showing aircraft symbol

MH370 vanished on March 8, 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. According to 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’, the air traffic controllers’ computers continued to display the aircraft symbol even though the plane’s ADS-B signal had “winked out” and it had disappeared from radar. MH370 had been flying towards IGARI, a waypoint that is far enough out over the ocean that it is sometimes out of range – a kind of “blind spot”.

The automatic tracking system often temporarily loses planes around IGARI for a few minutes, before they are picked up again by radar and radio.

Author and aviation expert Jeff Wise said: “You might think that all this would set off red flags for the air traffic controllers, but in fact this kind of winking out is normal.

“Air traffic controllers continued to see the plane symbol on their screens as the system assumed the plane remained on course.”

MH370 was supposed to be travelling over the boundary of Malaysian-controlled airspace to Vietnamese-controlled airspace.

When airliners do this they contact air traffic controllers on the ground informing them they are leaving the airspace, then a few minutes later radio in to the controllers in their new airspace.

MH370 contacted Kuala Lumpur and radioed out with the words: “Goodnight. Malaysian 370.”

Air traffic controllers in Hanoi saw the plane’s symbol continue as normal and waited for them to radio in.

However, they never received the expected communication from MH370.

Mr Wise added: “Not until 15 minutes had passed did air traffic controllers in Hanoi begin to wonder why MH370 hadn’t radioed in to establish contact.”

This is when they raised the alarm and began to phone round other air traffic control stations in the region trying to work out where the plane had gone.

Over the next few hours, air traffic controllers phoned each other and the airline but to no avail.

When dawn broke, MH370 was declared missing.

It was in those first crucial minutes that the system, designed to compensate for normal signal failures around waypoint IGARI, actually worked against them.

Had the plane disappeared from their screens, they may have known something was wrong sooner.

Pyramid seen in NASA images of Moon -conspiracists CONVINCED it means aliens came to Egypt

Alien hunters have gone into a frenzy after spotting the pyramid shape in a huge crater on the Moon. The structure appears to have three sides and does look as if it could be man-made. YouTuber Pacitto Dominique spotted the pyramid in NASA satellite images of the Moon and quickly uploaded it to his channel.

Since then, it has attracted the interest of conspiracy theorists who are convinced the Moon structure holds connections to the Egyptian pyramids.

Prominent UFO enthusiast Scott C Waring described it as “convincing evidence of the existence of intelligent life on our moon.”

Mr Waring wrote on the ET Database: “A pyramid that sat in the centre of a giant crater. It was a three sided pyramid with a single dark window going along one side.

“So the question remains, is this definitive proof that the pyramids in Egypt were built by aliens from our moon? It seems so.”

This is not the first time a Moon-like structure has been found on the lunar surface.

Some conspiracy theorists claims the Moon could be occupied by aliens and that is the reason NASA has not returned since the Apollo missions ended in the Seventies.

They suspect findings such as this pyramid and other anomalies could be monuments built by an ancient alien civilisation similar to the pyramids and other structures on Earth.

However, sceptics and NASA say the pyramid 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.

UFOs seen visiting HUGE volcano which is an ALIEN BASE – shock claim

Eagle eyed viewers spotted two objects hovering near Popocatepetl, near Mexico City, and some are even claiming they were dropping off ‘passengers’. The objects appear to be bright lights, one much larger than each other, and seem to be dancing around one another. As a result, alien enthusiasts believe the two crafts are working in tandem to supply the alleged alien base which is apparently up to six miles beneath the surface.

The footage was uploaded to YouTube channel UFO Mania and quickly went viral with conspiracy theorists offering opinions.

Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring wrote on ET Database: “The large UFO and the small UFO appear to actual fly into each other on purpose, as if they both were dropping off passengers and cargo with one another.

“Why? Because its been long believed by researchers like me that there is an alien base about 4-6 miles below the surface of this volcano.”

Other people have other ideas, saying aliens could be monitoring the volcano, colloquially known as El Popo, for activity.

One person commented on the original YouTube video: “The volcano starts activity/erupting and a ufo turns up. Could it be a probe sent to gather current data or is it a device sent to heighten or decrease the activity. Are we being helped or hindered?”

However, others have a more logical explanation, believing the ‘alien spaceship’ could be very much of a terrestrial nature.

One commenter wrote: “Could be a chopper investigating inside of the volcano, and or news crews?”

At 5,426 metres tall Popocatepetl, which is 70 kilometres away from the capital Mexico City, is the second largest volcano in North America, but experts say that it does not pose a huge threat to locals due to its usually dormant nature.

In 2017, Popocatepetl erupted for the first time since 2000 when ash was propelled a staggering three kilometres into the sky. Since then, there have been several eruptions.

ALIEN BOMBSHELL: UFO base ‘found on Moon’ and NASA KNOWS it’s there – BIZARRE claim

Despite there being no scientific evidence to support the notion that aliens live on the Moon, some alien-hunters are still convinced by the idea. And the latest image which supposedly shows a base on the surface of the Moon will do nothing to dampen enthusiasm of proponents of the alien-Moon theory. Extraterrestrials are living on the Moon, where they are developing mysterious technology, according to alien hunters.

NASA therefore is determined to return to the Moon so they can gather “alien intel” and to copy ET’s technology.

Leading alien enthusiast Scott C Waring made the bizarre claims after spotting several oddities in the Tsiolkovskiy crater – located near to the south of the Moon.

Mr Waring wrote on ET Database: “There are so many alien structures and disks in this photo its just unbelievable.

“Now we know why NASA kept going back again and again – it was to gather alien intel on the cities on the Moon and make a possible alien tech retrieval mission.”

This is not the first time a mysterious structure has been found on the lunar surface.

Some conspiracy theorists claims the Moon could be occupied by aliens and that is the reason NASA has not returned since the Apollo missions ended in the 1970s.

They suspect findings such as this pyramid and other anomalies could be monuments built by an ancient alien civilisation similar to the pyramids and other structures on Earth.

However, sceptics and NASA say the pyramid 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.

UFO proof? Pentagon FINALLY admits previous alien spacecraft investigations

The US Department of Defence has made a dramatic u-turn about UFO sightings. The Pentagon has finally admitted it has investigated UFOs as part of secretive initiative, after an official used the phrase “unidentified aerial phenomena”. And the significant shift in policy comes after the US Navy also changed its official guidelines on reporting UFOs.

A representative confirmed the US government investigated the occurrence unexplained aircraft as a part of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, made public in 2017.

And former British defence official Nick Pope revealed the specific choice of words marks a major step in the way that the government discusses UFO.

He said: “It also shows the British influence, because UAP was the term we used in the Ministry of Defence to get away from the pop culture baggage that came with the term ‘UFO’.”

The shift in language drives only weeks after the US Navy unveiled new guidelines on collecting information about UFO sightings.

The guidelines are designed to make it easier for sailors to report UFO sightings amid fears that “mysterious unidentified flying objects could actually be ‘extremely advanced Russian aircraft.”

The Navy has since reported a spike in the number of “highly advanced aircraft” encroaching on its air space.

A Navy spokesman said last month: “There have been a number of reports of unauthorised and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years.”

The US Government is shown an increasing willingness to acknowledge its investigation and interest of UFO’s.

In 2017, former Pentagon official Luis Elizondo shocked the world after discussing the existence of the UFO-focused Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – a $22million government UFO study.

The secretive program sought to identify UFO sightings through US surveillance and eyewitness reports and then “ascertain and determine if that information is a potential threat to national security.”

Among the sightings were reports from pilots of two US Navy Super Hornet fighters who spotted a UFO on a training mission.

The pilots reportedly spotted a mysterious 40ft long, oval-shaped hovering UFO.

The craft “had no plumes, wings or rotors”, but traveled at a mile per second.

But when pilots approached the object, it reportedly easily outran the military jets.

Mr Elizondo resigned from his post in 2017 in protest over what he has termed excessive secrecy and internal opposition to the project.

Although the Pentagon officially stopped funding the project in 2012, reports from the New York Times suggest the program is still operating.

Austrian Official Warns Against ‘Cow Kissing’ Challenge For Charity

An Austrian government official is having a cow over a bizarre Swiss app challenge urging followers to kiss bovines to raise money for charity.

The “KuhKussChallenge,” launched earlier this week on the Castl app, urges users in Switzerland, Austria and other German-speaking countries to kiss cows – “with or without tongue” – to raise charity funds, reported Agence France Presse.

Elisabeth Köstinger, Austria’s minister for sustainability and tourism, called the challenge “dangerous mischief.” She warned that pastures are “are not petting zoos” and that trying to kiss cows could have “serious consequences.”

Köstinger said that cows could become aggressive, particularly when defending their calves.

“Negligent handling of Austrian pastures has led to serious accidents in the past,” said Köstinger, according to a translation of a tweet. “I don’t understand a challenge of this kind!”

It wasn’t immediately clear exactly how the stunt — or the Castl app — raises money for charity.

Castl touts itself on Google Play as a tool of the “first true challenge community.” Its app promotion urges: “Let yourself be challenged and challenge others. We do crazy things for a good cause.”

Every challenge “winner” donates half of his or her take to a “charitable project” of their choice. Users “win stars” — which can be exchanged for “rewards” — for “posts, photos and challenge appearances,” according to the app.

Support the “best NGOs and projects with millions of stars from your clan and make sure that the things that are important to you in the future are actually true.” It adds: “Castl users always know where the next party is going.”

As for kissing cows, don’t try this at home — obviously.

Cows trampled a female German tourist to death while hiking with her dog in the Alps in western Austria in 2014. A court ordered the farmer who owned the animals to pay the woman’s husband $550,000. The farmer — with the support of Austria’s farmers’ federation — is appealing. 

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misstated the year cows trampled a female German tourist to death. It was 2014.

Earthquake TODAY: Major tremor forecasted as planets align – SHOCK claim

A self-proclaimed mystic has warned the population of Earth to be on high alert as he believes a major tremor is on its way. The reason behind this quake is apparently because the Earth, Mercury and the Sun have all aligned themselves within the solar system. As a result, the gravitational pull of Mercury and the Sun will tug on our planet, causing tension to build beneath the surface.

Stress will mount within the tectonic plates, which will eventually be released in the form of an earthquake.

This is at least according to ‘new age earthquake researcher’ Frank Hoogerbeets.

Mr Hoogerbeets wrote on his website Ditrianum: “The Earth-Sun-Mercury alignment today may trigger seismic activity over magnitude 6 in the next two days.”

The Dutch researcher does not saw when or where the earthquake will strike, but a magnitude six quake has the potential to cause serious damage.

READ MORE:

According to Michigan Tech, a magnitude six tremor has the ability to “cause a lot of damage in very populated areas.”

Mr Hoogerbeets reached his conclusion using his Solar System Geometry Index (SSGI) which “is the computation of a dataset for a specific time-frame of values given to specific geometric positions of the planets, the Moon and the Sun”.

He said: “After three years of observations, it became clear that some planetary geometry in the Solar System clearly tends to cause a seismic increase, while other geometry does not.”

But experts have previously dismissed Mr Hoogerbeets’ claims, saying that there is no way earthquakes can be predicted.

READ MORE:

John Bellini, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey (USGS) has said: “We can’t predict or forecast earthquakes.

“Sometimes before a large earthquake you’ll have a foreshock or two, but we don’t know they’re foreshocks until the big one happens.”

The USGS completely denies that earthquakes can be forecasted, writing on its website: “Neither the USGS nor any other scientists have ever predicted a major earthquake.

“We do not know how, and we do not expect to know how any time in the foreseeable future.”
