This is kind of like the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

So you would have preferred Malaysia not delayed the flight 4 hours to work the engine? Or continued on to Korea with a major electrical problem. The guys you have to worry about are the ones that blow off delaying flights or swapping aircraft with mechanical issues. Feel free to book your flights on them.

The only thing you have "proven" is that you pull fantasies out of the air and purport them to be fact. Your experience level appears to be limited to reading online threads, watching TV reports and reading the trades. From that, you throw everything at the wall and whatever sticks is what you announce to the world as fact and God forbid and help us if we don't go running off on your wild goose chase.

Hangars and FBO lounges are full of "There I was..." storytellers like you. Sadly also, many graveyards have headstones of people like you who, armed with your bravado, a few hours and no sense...go charging off because like you, they are so cocksure of themselves...and find out too late that they wrote a check that their skills can't cash.

So put up with your facts and go find the crash site or stop trolling...you're out of your league.

This is the same kind of guy who would call the Feds and say you're heavy is unsafe and should be grounded...because he saw the wings flexing inflight...

Don't knock his trolling skills, he is quite seasoned at it! A quick Google search of his username will keep you amused.

Here's one of my favorites. He wrote this in the comments section about the Asiana 777 crash:

Quote:
The likely cause I suggest is erroneous digital signals from an on board electronic device in the cabin, perhaps a cell phone, a lap top or an electronic toy sending false commands to the engines.

The same eastward trend appeared to continue for at least 30 minutes past IGARI, ie 30 minutes away from and 30 minutes flying back.

The laws of physics do not change and yet you just cut and paste a presentation you did not create and tell us it supports a view you did not create, and your view happens to go against every tech source available.

You amuse us, but you can't make sense.

This thread is nearly 1000 posts in and has degraded into the MODS beating up on a private pilot with a powerpoint slide and a conspiracy theory. Aside from the perverse entertainment it provides, why is this thread still open?

Can the MODS just rename the thread; "Fantasy Island" then close it, and we can all move along?

Why? Simple. If they rename the thread, SOMEONE will post a picture of the dude from "Fantasy Island," and Sy will either tell us he has communicated with him in the afterlife and he saw "de plane"...or he will tell us HE was really the guy and want to sue for copyright infringment of his picture...

Did a websearch for Sy...look what I found...
