Fox News thinks Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 landed in Pakistan

Fox News thinks that MH370 landed in Pakistan. Somebody needs to tell Fox News to hire a brain.
Yesterday there were reports in the media (later refuted by MAS) that engine data received from flight MH370 meant that it had continued to fly on for almost 4 hours after contact was lost with ground control. This meant that the plane could have flown to any location within the circle in the picture above. For some at Fox News however, it meant that flight MH370 was taken hostage and taken to Pakistan. Of course Fox News thinks that's the only logical outcome since Pakistan is a word associated with very negative connotations in the Fox News thesaurus.

The truth is Fox News, MH370 did not land in Pakistan. I mean, the idiocy and sheer lunacy of your proposition defies conventional logic. But of course in order to be Fox News I believe you have to transverse the boundaries of common sense and logic that set humans apart from, I don't know, baboons. Or buffoons if you're into that kind of thing.

Grow up Fox News. It's about fucking time.

Update 1:

Source: The Wall Street Journal
So this is the map that Fox News (and other news outlets) used to "predict" that flight MH370 might have reached Pakistan. As you can clearly see, it doesn't "reach" Pakistan. At all. Another map on The Guardian's website also shows that flight MH370 could only have reached somewhere in India at the maximum.

Once again then, grow up Fox News.

Update 2:

The Malaysian Prime Minister went on TV and said the plane continued flying for 7 hours after the last communication with ground control.

Let's assume the plane had enough fuel to go anywhere it wanted. In order to get to Pakistan, it would have to cross India. That is extremely sensitive and restricted airspace.

Even will all electronic equipment shut down, if the plane had entered Indian/Pakistani airspace, both countries' military/federal aviation radars would have picked it up. This is a plane. A big one. Not a penny with wings.

And then you would have to land the plane. Does everyone seriously believe that anyone could land that plane in Pakistan without anyone knowing? Without anyone seeing? You've got American military with all their fancy gadgetry right next door in Afghanistan. You've got the Indians on the other side. Does anyone honestly believe that a commercial airliner duped everyone and just landed itself in Pakistan without anyone knowing?

The Pakistani government for its part has denied that the plane is inside the country's borders.

Faith said...

Hahahaha... Lol! You made my day! I can't stop laughing. This was awesome!
You should start praising BBC and CNN next lol.

@asefwaheed said...

Yes... May be MalaysianAirlines landed in Pakistan. Pakistan only have work to hijack the plane... Give me a break yar... Be Serious... Pray for MH370

jim jim said...

Your theory works only if they had only enough fuel to travel to Beijing and not a mile more. Wouldn't one assume that there would be a bit more fuel in case of weather or flight plan changes?

zubairw said...

I dont think its impossible that it came to Pakistan, but very unlikely. Like kind of that "Niel Armstrong was infact a Pakistani who underwent surgery to go to the moon to hide evidence of Taliban training camps and missle silo's' unlikely. And to @asefwaheed, you are correct that planes do carry extra fuel but consider the fact that to get to Pakistan you need to go across a good chunk of India and cross a very sensitive airspace. So, highly unlikely.

And this is why you don't report the news. CNN was still drawing squares only 100 miles from the planes starting point on Friday. I give the hijackers more credit than to think they just flew around in circles for 5 hours and then crashed it. Pakistan is a very real possibility and even further since the last ping from the plane was heard over 7 hours after takeoff. The circle was just to show the distance to Beijing. They assume you are intelligent to understand the plane held more fuel than to run dry just as it arrived.

springtime said...

also don't' forget that if that fly slower and higher they are more efficient and can fly for a lot longer. Hence, they could have made Pakistan. Also interesting is that last ping has them very high in altitude (from reports) which would add to the idea they were trying to cover a far distance. Don't forget it was following normal commercial aviation way points and any military radar would have assumed it was a routine flight for commercial purposes. Most commercial jets fly over Pakistan from Europe to South East Asia. Sounds crazy, but I would not rule out Pakistan or somewhere else in the region.

It's not unlikely ..read this: high probability of tailgating technique used by hijackers. Potential destination to be Pakistan http://www.reddit.com/r/news/comments/20dopw/comprehensive_timeline_malaysia_airlines_flight/cg2uht6

if you would have any idea of India and Pakistan then u would not say this. Their military radars have complete information about all the commercial flights entering the airspace. Any flight entering their airspace specially for landing with its transponder not responding will only see fighter planes next to it within minutes.

Irfan Ahmed said...

Yes someone from Pakistan would have caught the plan and gave it to his children to play. Pathetic media reports at Fox news

jexter said...

yes it landed in pakistan i saw it my own eyes

pak_love said...

We dont know if it landed in Pakistan but definetly it is linked to terrorism and when it is terrorism it is definetly Pakistan.

AJ said...

Lol this guy that wrote the article is pretty naive. Not saying it did or didn't attempt to fly to Pakistan. But it is obviously a real possibility. Probably why he is working for a no name internet site instead of an intelligence Agency.

naveed said...

any aircraft needs to flyover Pakistan need the permission before departure. Its work all over the world. No aircraft can fly over on any country without prior permission.

Dr. said...

This is a conspiracy against Pakistan. Agreeing with the fact that Pakistanis and ISI, in general, have a soft corner for the Talibans; however, Pakistan is one of the most close allies of China. Pakistani military industrial complex buys a lot of arms and weapons from China. They would not want to strain their strong ties with China as the flight MH 370 en route to Beijing had a majority of Chinese nationals on-board.

umbra said...

You don't have to fly over India to get to Pakistan. Look at a map sometime.

Umbra said...

You are correct. ICAO (international civil aviation authority) IFR reserve rules require an airline to carry enough fuel to reach the original destination, then continue to an alternate destination, then fly for 45 minutes at normal cruise. That's a lot of gas! They could have made it to Pakistan easily. They didn't fly over India, they flew around it over the ocean until they reached the Pakistan coastline.

Umbra said...

You wouldn't have to fly over India to reach Pakistan! You can fly around it until you reach the Pakistan coastline!

Umbra said...

MH370 landed in Pakistan because the ISI allowed it to happen! The ISI does what it wants, when it wants!
