mh370 mystery continues

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...ml?wpsrc=nymag

So the part that is supposed to be from MH 370 has discrepancies in maintenance details and spent several month several meters under water .. Added to that its missing the ID it should have.

The plane landed at a remote airfield in the desolate most eastern part of Iran. And the passengers are being held captive in caverns under the desert.

Sounds good anyway.

The truth about airplane parts. They are swapped quite often. If a part is damaged, it's not uncommon to cannibalize an airplane that maybe out of service for a lengthy routine maintenance, in order to get another airplane back in service.

Cruise missiles are expensive, but jacking and repurposing MH370 would have been relatively cheap. Either way, I feel for the families as the passengers would be CD (too expensive to sustain for a future ransom and an early one would tip their hand) Dark and twisted thoughts, but we all know it's the real world.

All well and good but parts also have inventory numbers so they know where the parts went. Part of running an airline requires meticulous record keeping. Borrowed parts have a paper trail. They are airplanes not Land Rovers.

We're talking about Malaysia airlines here. From a country in a part of the world that operates airplanes of questionable reliability.

I've flown Malaysia. While most of my experiences have been great, I do recall flying on a 737 that had a serious vibration in engine one. Landed in Langkawi. They turned the airplane right back out.

So yes, parts are tracked with US air carriers and EU carriers. Anything in Africa, ME, SA, Russia, or Asia are questionable at times.

Each part (and assembly) has a part number and a serial number. If the part isn't a time-change item (critical and/or high wear/failure item) in most cases it will not be serially controlled (and tracked).

French investigators say the parts that washed ashore ARE from the Malaysia Airlines aircraft based on the serial numbers on the parts.

Are they also stating where Elvis is at the moment? Has he left the building?

They did say that Elvis was last seen running out of a Wheeling Il Walmart with a canned ham under one arm and a case of Colt 45 Malt Liquor under the other arm.

You know how easy it is to just throw a piece from an airplane into the ocean and spark a rumor its from MH370? They make you believe it crashed into the ocean!!!

Where's my hat!? Jason, make sure it has a brim, I need it to be somewhat fashionable.

Elvis was spotted in the mountain town of Timberon NM
