    If you search his name Blaine Gibson online, he he appears to enjoy the pursuit, not the investigation.. The press coverage mentions a formal process to deliver all MH370 debris to Malaysian investigative authorities..

    New evidence suggests that Malaysian Airlines flight 370 may have been shot down

    Investigative journalist Florence de Changy has spent years researching the aircraft’s disappearance, and does not believe the official line around the flight’s vanishing.

    A new investigation by Florence de Changy suggests that flight MH370 could have been shot down.
    On March 8 2014, the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared seemingly without trace enroute to Beijing, vanishing along with the 239 people on board.

    Official accounts decided that the plane undertook a dramatic u-turn less than an hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpar to Beijing, then plummeted into the Indian Ocean.
    However, de Changy does not buy this narrative, instead arguing that the plane instead continued on course for another 80 minutes before disappearing north of Vietnam.
    She suspects that the plane may have been shot down by a “fighter jet, missile or a new laser-guided weapon system being tested in the region at the time”, possibly accidentally or deliberately, though at present she has no definitive proof of this.

    Despite one of the most expensive underwater searches in history, no conclusive evidence has come to light which might tell us more about what caused the flight to disappear so suddenly and so completely.

    Speaking to France24, Ms. De Changy said:

    “I am convinced that the official narrative, the u-turn and everything that follows, was actually a fabrication.
    “A lot of the information that you have in the official report are inconsistent with the official narrative.
    “One very simple example is that when I mentioned the transponder had been turned off, that’s what we were told, actually when you look at the way the plane disappears from the traffic controller screens, it takes forty seconds.
    “So that’s completely inconsistent with transponder being turned off.”

    The new book is based on findings from intelligence reports and questioning dozens of experts to try and piece together what could be causing what de Changy views as numerous inconsistencies in the official narrative.
    Among the many findings that Ms. De Changy puts forward are that she believes the plane did not vanish from radar because of a fault, but because it was deliberately cloaked. She said:

    “When we say it disappeared, it actually was most likely jammed, cloaked.”
    “When it disappeared, it was basically cloaked by a plane, and one hour later at 2.25, it reappears. That’s official as well. When the sat com relogs, and then something catastrophic must have happened at that point.
    “And that’s why my best guess is that the disaster happened on the north east of Vietnam around 2.45 in the morning, which has got nothing to do basically with the official line narrative.”

    There is also the issue of what else the plane was carrying in its cargo hold on the journey, which may not provide answers but certainly creates cause for suspicion about the aircraft’s fate. She explained:
    “A much more problematic cargo is 2.5 tonnes of electronic equipment which has not been x-rayed before being loaded on this plane, and not only that, it has been escorted before being loaded on that plane.

    De Changy goes further, even suggesting that there may have been a cover up, describing the official version of events as a “diversion operation” to distract from this mysterious cargo.
    Other theories about the disappearance have included a lightning strike, a fire on board, or a drop in air pressure causing the crew to fall unconscious.
    Though some pieces of debris have been found, the plane itself has yet to be recovered.

    Whilst final answers may still not be apparent, it certainly gives pause for thought about whether there was indeed more to this plane’s disappearance than meets the eye.

    The Disappearing Act: The Impossible Case Of MH370, by Florence de Changy, is published by HarperCollins.

    It was tracked by Immarsat, there really are only 2 plausible explanations.Hijack or suicide.

    Sorry, Florence, but I think your theory is full of hot air.

    Seems to be quite an obsession with her: I understand this is her second book about MH 370.
    That being said, I have been "googling" her name yesterday, seems that she has a strong reputation as a journalist: serious, thorough, etc...
    But I am a bit tired of people saying (or writing): "things are not what you believe they are, we are not told the whole story, we've been lied to, etc..."

    Laymen do not understand you can only jam receivers, not transmitters. You can fake or overpower a transmitter signal, but not jam it.

    If the plane was shot down north of Vietnam, there wouldn't be debris found in South Africa, and Madagascar, etc. The debris finds correspond to the Inmarsat data, which showed the plane went down in the southern Indian Ocean.
