Malaysia more risky than India?

09 June 2014 19:05:58 WN.com - World News

From missing airplanes to jail-bound opposition leaders, Malaysia has recently made international headlines for all the wrong reasons. Will the nation’s economy be next? That’s the thrust of a new report from Sarah Fowler of UK-based Oxford Economics, which ranks Malaysia the “riskiest country in Asia of those we consider”, more so than India, Indonesia and even coup-happy Thailand. On the surface, she points out, all’s well: growth is zooming along at 6.2 percent, the external balance is sound and political stability reigns. But...

BEIJING — Malaysian authorities said Wednesday they were encouraged by new satellite images provided by France showing 122 floating objects off the Australian coast that could be debris of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

Rebecca Valli BEIJING — Australian authorities Tuesday suspended the search for MH370 for 24 hours, citing bad weather and rough seas in the southern Indian Ocean. So far, authorities have not found any debris from the plane, despite numerous possible leads.

Malaysia jet mystery obsesses aero industry, just what to do unclear

SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - The global aviation industry is reverberating with shock as well as a range of theories over the fate of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, but most in the business think the unsolved mystery is more of a tragic red herring than a wake-up call for drastic changes. Despite the lack of new information, flight MH370 was at the top of the agenda on the street, at the pubs and in private meetings this week at the International Society of Transport Air Trading in San Diego, the annual gathering of 1,600 airplane makers, buyers and lessors. "The people that I deal with are looking at this with great concern - it appears considerable efforts may have gone into cloaking the...

What if the missing Malaysia plane is never found?

18 March 2014 20:13:45 WN.com - World News

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The plane must be somewhere. But the same can be said for Amelia Earhart's. Ten days after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared with 239 people aboard, an exhaustive international search has produced no sign of the Boeing 777, raising an unsettling question: What if the airplane is never found? Such an outcome, while considered unlikely by many experts, would certainly torment the families of those missing. It would also flummox the airline industry, which will struggle to learn lessons from the incident if it doesn't know what happened. While rare nowadays, history is not short of such mysteries — from the most famous of all, American aviator...

Will missing jet prompt change in aviation system?

16 March 2014 14:03:11 WN.com - World News

NEW YORK — The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has exposed wide gaps in how the world's airlines — and their regulators — operate. But experts warn this isn't likely to be one of those defining moments that lead to fundamental changes. For financial and technological reasons, and because of issues tied to national sovereignty, the status quo is expected to prevail in the way passports are checked, aircraft are tracked at sea and searches are coordinated. In an age of constant connectedness, it's almost inconceivable to lose a 209-foot-long airplane for more than a week, or be in the dark about what happened onboard around the time it went missing.

Not the way the Malaysian government has acted this week, obviously. Confused, confusing, and contradictory statements from officials have drawn fire from relatives of the missing passengers, foreign journalists here, aviation experts, and the Chinese government. “This is the worst disaster in our history; a close second is how it has been handled,” says Jahabar Sadiq, a co-founder of the Malaysian Insider online news portal.

US Sends Ship to Indian Ocean on Indication of Missing Malaysian Jet

14 March 2014 11:19:11 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

The Pentagon has sent the warship USS Kidd to the Indian Ocean, following an indication that missing Malaysian Airlines plane could have crashed on Saturday in the area. According to senior administration officials, the missing Malaysian flight continued to "ping" a satellite after it lost contact with radar, the ABC News reports. The aircraft was equipped with an Airplane Health Management system which pings a satellite every hour. The number of pings would indicate how long the plane stayed aloft. It is not clear, however, whether the satellite pings also indicate the plane's location. The new information has greatly expanded the potential search area into the Indian Ocean. Meanwhile, it became clear that the shutdown of two communication systems happened separately on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 indicating that the plane did not disappear due to a catastrophic failure, the ABC news informs. Investigators told ABC News that the two communication systems were "systematically shut down." meaning that there was manual intervention. Malaysian transport minister rejected the latest reports on the missing plane's possible location, including the Chinese satellite photos, Thursday by saying they had been "released by accident", the Euronews reports. He assured reporters that "Malaysia has nothing to hide" and the search efforts will continue to be focused on the South China Sea. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared with 239 passengers on board while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early Saturday local time. The aircraft went off the radar south of Vietnam. Searches for any wreckage of the aircraft that might have crashed somewhere at sea have entered their seventh day.
