    Question MH370 'accidentally shot down' 1st Book

    bumfluff piste announces

    Published: 18 May 2014 at 11.18 | Viewed: 5,703 | Comments: 1Online news: Writer: epa
    SYDNEY - The first book about missing flight MH370 suggests it may have been shot down during a military exercise and the accident is being covered up, it was reported on Sunday.

    Flight MH370 - the Mystery, written by Anglo-American author Nigel Cawthorne, cites anonymous sources to suggest that misinformation was released so the search would concentrate on the wrong area, The Sun-Herald newspaper reported.

    The book published by Sydney group New South cites a claim by New Zealander Mike McKay that he saw a burning plane from the oil rig he was working on in the Gulf of Thailand on March 8, the day the plane went missing.

    Cawthorne links the supposed sighting to joint Unietd States military exercises in the region at the time.

    Cawthorne writes if MH370 was accidentally shot down during live fire exercises "those involved would have every reason to keep quiet about it."

    He even suggests that if a flight black box is found it could be a fake planted by those involved in the coverup. But, he added, "I'm not saying that's what happened." The book goes on sale Monday.

    Meanwhile, the Australian navy ship Ocean Shield is waiting for repairs to be done to the submersible sonar Bluefin 21 before it can resume the search in the southern Indian Ocean.

    The Joint Agency Coordination Centre running the Indian Ocean search had no comment about the new book.

    It's certainly not impossible given the Thai capacity for inefficiency and carelessness.

    Well knowing how Ents warped mind works I recon he will be front of the line and buy up all the copies.

    Next will come a new thread on TD for us all to pull the piss out of him.

    The Americans have shot down more civilian aircraft than the Thais have.

    Sure Rainfall may have the data on Baron Manfredn but Eastern front German pilot Hartmann downe more than a Nana swalloer and probably the entire history of Thai air force.

    In WW1 hard to count hits as the flying circus meant many slow moving aircraft were in close proximity.

    I'd guess on their superior ethics if we add in drones Uncle Sam leads the field, This avoids traumatizing the pilots.

    while xanax may have a reason to be upset ,going down on the plaa ra eaters can leave a bad taste.
