Read Someone is Hiding Something: What Happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? by Richard Belzer David Wayne George Noory Online


A year after the disappearance and commencement of the international search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, no sign of the plane has been found--no debris, no bodies, no sign of the much-talked-about black box. Richard Belzer, George Noory, and David Wayne want to know why. Scrutinizing the theories the media and politicians claim are the "most likely" reasons the planeA year after the disappearance and commencement of the international search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, no sign of the plane has been found--no debris, no bodies, no sign of the much-talked-about black box. Richard Belzer, George Noory, and David Wayne want to know why. Scrutinizing the theories the media and politicians claim are the "most likely" reasons the plane crashed, Belzer, Noory, and Wayne argue that if a year after a huge Boeing 777 has gone missing, and there's still no sign of it whatsoever, it's time to think outside the box. The public needs to stop being misled. If a plane and its passengers went "missing" once, what's to stop it from happening again? Some of the theories the authors consider seem implausible on the surface, but the thorough research they've done and the continual failure of politicians, aviation authorities, and military members around the world to give any indication they're wrong makes their arguments as good--if not better--than the more widely shared ones. The title of this thought-provoking volume, Someone is Hiding Something, is a line spoken by former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad--perhaps the only government official to publicly acknowledge the true reason that neither Flight 370 nor the 239 people onboard have been found....

    We did the most comprehensive timeline that has been done for Flight 370 and it reveals how the official version is not even possible.Our meta-analysis of the evidence has uncovered some very important information that you probably were not familiar with:•  A distress call from Flight 370 apparently was made, contrary to the official version that there was not one. •  The flight crews of two commercial airliners flying near Flight 370 were asked to radio-communicate to the plane and did so, receiving only a garbled response. •  Fighter planes were reportedly sent up to identify and escort Flight 370, though official reports deny that.•  There are numerous eyewitness reports of a low-flying, burning jetliner, matching the description of Flight 370, near its known locations.•  Malaysian police admitted that they faked the photographs of the two Iranian passengers traveling with stolen passports.•  Radar information was also incorrect. “Flight 370 did not dramatically climb to 45,000 and then dive below 23,000 feet after completing a U-turn before it disappeared.” •  The number of cell phone pings from a large jetliner “would be a chorus” to the hi-tech listening stations the United States has around the world, said a technology expert, who was amazed that the plane could not be located via those digitized signals.•  Cell phones should have functioned at some of the reported locations and, indeed, the copilot did place a call with his cell phone. •  Another cell phone message was reportedly traced to GPS coordinates near the Diego Garcia military base, via the software embedded in the message.•  Twenty of the passengers on the flight were employees of Freescale Semiconductor, a company that reportedly had developed a new microchip that “might be the most potent next-generation war weaponry.” •  Contrary to mainstream media misinformation, taking control of an aircraft remotely, is a well-documented capability. It quite clearly can be done.•  Contrary to mainstream media misinformation, there is no event in all of aviation history that even comes close to the circumstances of Flight 370. Air France 447, though often compared, was quickly located, and was precisely where they thought it would be.•  Contrary to mainstream media misinfo, commercial jetliners are tracked everywhere, even in remote areas of ocean: “The aircraft’s flight computer, programmed to send automatic position reports by satellite, continues to transmit data.”Concentrate for a moment, on the broader aspects of this whole crazy scenario:In a post-9/11 world, a huge commercial airliner— without advising air traffic control— turns sharply off its northeast flight pattern, heading back south or southwest. It is impossible to believe that some form of radar does not track such an extreme move. As far as answers to the question, “What do they do when they see that?”—nothing is not one of them. To put it as simply as possible: Only a catastrophic event could cause the simultaneous global failure of all safety and emergency systems plus back-up fail-safe emergency systems, on board and in communication and tracking with, a Boeing 777. Many types of catastrophic events can be ruled out. Those that remain possible are: •  Massive Fire (only partly plausible because there still should have been time to declare an emergency)•  Missile Shoot-Down (accidental or intentional, with surreptitious debris retrieval) •  Hijacking/Advanced Technologies (such as a “cloaking technique” of electronic warfare)To their credit, a number of high-placed individuals have now come out and concurred with these points. Tim Clarke, the CEO of Emirates Airlines, said recently: "Our experience tells us that in water incidents, where the aircraft has gone down, there is always something … This is true. As far as I know, there have been no cases where a commercial airliner has crashed into the sea and no parts were recovered, even if the crash occurred in an unknown location far out in the middle of the ocean, as MH370's presumably did.”Sir Tim Clark is President and CEO of Emirates Airlines, the largest airline in the Middle East: “My own view is that probably control was taken of that airplane.” Our Facebook page will have all the video links that are in the book on Malaysia FLT 370 so you can WATCH ALONG AS YOU READ

    Someone Is Hiding Something is a little on the "tinfoil hat nutcase" side, but it does offer up some intriguing and strangely plausible theories to the tragic Malaysia Airlines case. When I first heard of the case, I was in Puerto Rico and it was popping up on every news station, so it was interesting to see a book out that explores the possible causes to the disaster.

    Very informative book that is well written. Belzer paints us a picture with the facts and also asks intelligent questions that have yet to be officially answered. Was the plane an act of cyber-terrorism? or Theft? or just really bad luck all around? I had many questions before I started. Even more when I finished. The Big question is still, "Where is the plane now?"

    Conspiracy theory can be fun, and there were interesting details about the crash investigation in "Someone is Hiding Something." absolutely learned some things. The problem is that the writing is pretty terrible. Constant screeds about the "mainstream media" and holier-than-thou direct address (in the style of "listen up, boys and girls") adds no useful information and is extremely distracting.I was hoping to come away from this book with a reasonable understanding of the various plausible theories of what may have happened to 370 and what was known and not known, mostly because aviation circles discuss 370 quite a bit. Mission sort of accomplished, but it was a struggle. 40 minutes on Wikipedia will provide all of the content in this book.

    Yes, undoubtedly, someone is hiding something. . . . My guess is that the plane and the passengers, if still alive, are on Diego Garcia. Maybe someone should just come out with the truth of why MH370 was abducted.

    I wanted to be convinced of something by this book, or at least to be given something to think about seriously. 200+ pages later I still leaned towards the official explanation more than anything suggested here. This is mostly due to the immature, sarcastic tone in tackling a grave subject, the fact that the alternative theories contain contradictions at the same time as the authors criticise contradictions elsewhere, and attempts to ram home their points by underline or italicising text, as if that makes it more believable.On the plus side, I did learn some new things about aviation technology, but a lot of the more entry-level science is obviously flawed even to the layman. The chapter on aliens says literally nothing about MH370 and instead is an incongruous segue into Area 51 speculation, and the concluding chapter - SPOILER ALERT - despite being titled "Conclusions", does not actually arrive at any conclusions. You'll finish the book none the wiser than before you started it, unless 200+ pages of "the government and mass media are bad" sounds original to you.

    This is a decent book on an airline mystery that really has no answer. What happened to flight 370 has still not been answered, including the possibly tragic fate of all on board. I agree that no plane just dissapears especially in this day and age with all of the fancy electronics available. What the authors do is posit several scenarios, however in an almost painful fashion.Most of the book puts forward a theory or possibilty and than back this with reference to some video or news article they are basing the supposition upon. This could lead the reader on a very entertaining computer chase for a lot of interesting facts. However if one just wants to relax with a good book away from the electronic distractions you may wish to seek elsewhere.Overall not bad just some poor construction issues when one thinks of a relaxing read, such as perhaps before a nice nap before a long evening at work.

    This book was an interesting read. It Is good to ask questions when the evidence doesn't add up.

    Very well written.Follows all lines of enquiry, not matter how odd, and eliminates as it goes.Brilliant! Hard to put down!

    Two stars because "it was ok." I love a good conspiracy theory, I'm a big fan of George Noory, and I was mesmerized by this story last year, so it was a no-brainer to buy the book as soon as I heard about it. There wasn't much new (to me) in the book (compared to the vast internet reading I did on it last year), but it was still interesting and worth reading. I wish they had explored the MH17 connection a little more (because isn't it an odd coincidence?). I could have done without the cheeky tone throughout. Had I been a guest editor, I would have eliminated that, and there were even some weird things related to the disappearance I read about last year that were excluded in this book... such as: they could have gone more in depth on the pilot's political affiliation, Sarah Bajc's emerging media role/leadership (she was only briefly mentioned), many of the other false leads such as the oil slick spotted shortly after the disappearance then quickly ruled out (i.e. would that be related to a possible cover up if it really was a missile shoot down?). I could probably list more that I would have added to this book. And it could have used a good index/more thorough table of contents. One thing I hadn't heard was that there was a "listening device" that's used globally that detected no crash impact, not in land or in water, around the right time frame (that was new to me). All in all, interesting read. Let me put my tin cap back on.

    Bertepatan dengan tajuk, penulis hanya memberi fakta-fakta kemungkinan apa yang terjadi kepada nasib pesawat MH370. Penulis membangkitkan bagaimana media perdana cuba untuk menutup kes ini. Adalah tidak logik sebuah pesawat boleh hilang tanpa dikesan dengan kemudahan teknologi kini. Penulis membandingkan trajedi MH17, Amerika khususnya dengan teknologi satelit mereka dapat mengesan anti pesawat dari sempadan Rusia/Ukraine mengapa tiba-tiba setelit seluruh dunia tidak dapat mengesan MH370.Ke semua sudut dilihat sama ada pesawat ini dirampas, akibat cuaca, tindakan pengganas, cubaan bunuh diri, masalah mekanikal, ditembak, sabotaj, teknologi terkini sehinggalah kemungkinan mendarat di lapangan terbang tentera US di Diego Garcia, Lautan Hindi. Penulis juga mengaitkan teknologi yang dimiliki Boeing iaitu Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible Autopilot yang boleh mengawal sesebuah pesawat secara autopilot oleh pihak ketiga.Banyak rujukan yang dibuat dan boleh disahkan kembali dengan link yang diberi. Secara peribadi saya setuju dengan Tun Mahadir. Tun Mahadir sahaja yang berani menuduh CIA dan Boeing terlibat di dalam trajedi ini.

    The plight of Flight 370 continues to baffle the world, largely because nothing quite like the disappearance has ever happened in aviation history. The authors present several different theories, leaving no stone unturned. They raise questions such as: why has no debris been located especially since after the tsunami in Japan, "pieces of debris as large as refrigerators and motorcycles washed ashore at beaches thousands of miles away." Or why no passengers used their cell phones, such as those documented calls from passengers on the doomed 9/11 planes.The authors present scenarios ranging from: cyber hijacking, fire, weather, terrorism, and a link between the aircraft and Diego Garcia, an island south of India. Questions raise more questions.The one certainty after reading this book is that you will be dissatisfied with the recent official ruling that the flight's fate was due to "accidental circumstances."

    I love Richard Belzer so much! You can practically hear him narrating this excellent book. Don't expect a definitive answer to the tragic "disappearance" of Malaysia 370. The title says it all. Do expect a thorough coverage of many theories, along with links to do some research yourself.

    Wow"There is nothing new under the son" (King Solomon)Men have always done dirty deeds for gain. Seems like someone has plans for those poor passengers that didn't include going home. ANOTHER 9/11?Good reading.

    It does give a good timeline of events and available evidence, but the writing style makes it utterly painful to read. Also, if you're in a rush, just skip to the last chapter- the entire book is repeated in a slightly condensed version.

    Fascinating presentation of the facts. this is one of the most complex mysteries of our time. Hopefully one day soon there will be a resolution for the families and the entire world

    Hey Belz. It's clear you haven't read the Warren Commission or Reclaiming History(by Bugliosi. Probably the best book ever written.)((Seriously!!)).
