Debris Found Off Vietnam Coast from Missing Malaysian Plane?

HO CHI MINH, Vietnam – Vietnamese authorities have reportedly found two pieces of objects off Vietnam coast which may have been part of the debris from the missing Malaysian plane flight MH370.

A senior Vietnamese official from the National Committee for Search and Rescue revealed the objects, although not yet confirmed officially, looks like parts of an aircraft and has yet to be fished out from the sea.

“We received information from a Vietnamese plane saying that they found two broken objects, which seem like those of an aircraft, located about 50 miles to the southwest of Tho Chu Island,” said the official who requested anonymity.

“As it is night, they cannot fish them out for proper identification. They have located the position of the areas and flown back to the land,” he added.

The official also said boat patrols and search teams will be sent Monday to the area to scout and make further investigation.

If positively identified as part of the missing plane wreck, it will be the first indication of discovering traces of MH370 that mysteriously disappeared in mid-air without a distress call on Saturday morning hours after taking off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing.

The 11-year old Boeing 777-200, who was still climbing to an altitude of 35,000 when it suddenly  vanished from radar tracking records , reportedly carries 227 passengers and 12 crews.

The hunt for the missing plane continuous more than 48 hours since its disappearance with collective efforts from neighboring Asian countries – Singapore, the Philippines, China, Vietnam – and the United States.

Plane could have disintegrated in mid-air

Meanwhile, an unidentified source who is involved in the Malaysian investigation put forward the possibility that MH370 could have disintegrated in the sky while cruising.

“The fact that we are unable to find any debris so far appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet,” said the source who asked not to be named.

According to the source, if the aircraft plunged in one piece from its cruising altitude, and broke up only after impact with water, search would have already found a fairly concentrated pattern of debris.

As to the possibility of a bomb explosion, he said there is no evidence yet to suggest such a scenario and the plane could have disintegrated only due to mechanical failure.

Several theories were being considered by the investigating team and the Interpol, such as a possible link to terrorism after two passengers on-board the missing plane were reported to have used stolen passports of two Europeans – Austrian Christian Kozel and Italian Luigi Maraldi.

Both men, whose name appeared on the flight’s passenger manifest but were found somewhere else, have claimed to have their passports stolen in Thailand more than a year ago.

“Whilst it is too soon to speculate about any connection between these stolen passports and the missing plane, it is clearly of great concern that any passenger was able to board an international flight using a stolen passport listed in Interpol’s databases,” Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said in a statement.

Besides Kozel and Maraldi, Malaysian authorities has revealed identifications of two more passengers are also being investigated.

They maintained, however, terrorism is just one of the many possibilities being looked into.

“We are looking at all possibilities,” Malaysian Transport Minister Hishamuddin Hussein said. “We cannot jump the gun. Our focus now is to find the plane.”

    It’s possible for a Hi Jacked by some people with narrow minds and will use again for another terrorism acts. All those passengers might dead or somewhat but “disappearance” of a huge plane is really impossible because we are on the Age of computers and every Airport tower could detect those planes and even the Satellite in the orbit could record it. Australia and US cannot disclose it’s drone over the said place as it will start again another issues for widespread collection of data and calls.

    my personal point of view.

      It is Possible. If you read the article the plane might have disintegrated, once a plane is disintegrated its like looking for a certain piece of sand in a sand box.

      Here’s an example. you have a piece of paper. it is easy to detect that paper if it is still whole, if the paper is burned and turned to ashes, and scattered across, no piece of hi advance satellite or martian technology could detect that a paper was once their.
      even if a satellite pointed out the exact location of the plane after the incident, if a search team was to be sent and still no traces could be found, even parts of a plane, still it would tell that the satellite did no good. just the thought ofthe plane passing by that region.

        I’m afraid this plane will soon come out and full of C4 targeting another countries tower and will start for another act of war.

        The latest news, authorities said there’s 2 stolen passports or
        switch passport of the passenger which give them a thought for another
        terrorism act. They do not disclosed yet to whom those passports they
        recovered, however, I am certain on my first impression of Hi Jack. I
        cannot argued with disappearing of huge airplane in just like that and
        “no debris” which a big question mark for all of us. Even you bomb the
        entire International Airplane you still see something from it and not
        going to vanished the entirety of the plane.

        It seems that there’s a lapses on the Airport or a conspiracy like the 9/11. The airport guys work for over 2 years and they can IN and OUT whoever they want without using the scanner because of their badge pass. Then they Hi Jacked the Plane and bomb the Twin Tower of USA which the World Trade Center.

        It’s just my theory and fore thoughts about the incident. Looks same old same strategy on how they took an airplane and makes invisible in an instant.

          wow… so many arm chair theories and thoughts.

          • SUPER_P1NOY

            Of course, some sort of ideas as for me… Only David Copperfield makes the huge Statue of Liberty gone on the eyes of the people… LOL!

            I am saying is, you cannot hide that big airplane without using the cloak device that you need to plant inside of the plane and voila, everything will be gone at all type of electronics devices even the satellite video cannot seen the cloaking device.

            Anyhow, cloaking device main ingredients are diamond or brilliants to make some stuff gone in your eyes.

            But if its hi jacked..the pilot still have time to call or make signal..but its nothing?

        • shots_fired

          Yup possible it could be, i’m just making my own theory here.

      • _Intel_

        shouldnt the blackbox give any signal on its coordinates?

    • hoyako

      if this is a hijacked pilot has a plenty of time to signal, the only thing I can think of is the cockpit might have been blown up? its just really weird because there’s no distress call from the pilot. they just vanished.
