Missing Airliner MH370: 2018-2019 Updates

For Updates 9 March 2019+, see click for Index 2020 Vision2020

2020 is both a Year and a Vision

Holding Pattern. There were no notes for 2018, as far as I know. The world nearly forgot the enigma of MH370, which I believe most likely lies at the bottom of the Indian Ocean thousands of miles from where authorities were searching in vain, spending countless monies and work hours for nothing. Read my Lemma 3 analysis, which tells you the missing leg of the discovery process. Because nobody else has done so, I make the case that most likely (over 50% probability) the aircraft lies on the ocean bed not far south of the Arabian Peninsula, with its nose pointed toward the Horn of Africa. Per Lemma 3, it was hijacked, refueled, and flown toward Africa to be weaponized and then dropped on a target in Europe, or Israel, or perhaps the Straits of Hormuz. The catastrophic effect, whatever the target of opportunity and messaging, would have rivaled or exceeded 9-11. Judging from Maldives sightings (dismissed by corrupt governments with agendas in the region), the mission of state-sponsored terrorism failed, and the plane went down at sea. Drift results during the ensuing two years ambiguously support either my lemma totally or that of the now dismissable official position (that the plane went down off the western coast of Australia).

Holding Pattern. The case of MH370 has slipped into a global holding pattern as authorities appear to be totally baffled and to have officially given up the search. Of course, a colossal event or mystery like the MH370 enigma will always remain an open case for interested observers (government, corporate, academic, or private) around the world. Guaranteed: there are those who know what happened (what I now believe most likely state-sponsored and anti-Western, within my Lemma 3). I have copied the Main (index) page of this website to this page you're looking at, capturing the last updates from 2017 and 2018. Starting 2019, there will not be annual folders, so there will be no 2019 or later year pages. Rather, I will end this project with a final page (folder), which I ironically name 2020. That refers not so much to a year, as to a vision. Perfect 20-20 vision on many global concerns is sorely lacking as we fly blindly through 2019 Blade Runner Year.

Flying Blind through Blade Runner Year 2019

Ironic Aside. This paragraph is just for fun, in a dismal year for world affairs in general. My favorite SF (1980s Blade Runner) movie has nothing to do with the MH370 case except that I find a certain ironic amusement in the fact that we've arrived at the actual year in which director/auteur Ridley Scott placed his masterpiece of DarkSF (my term for the best of poetic, atmospheric, and imaginative fiction; I call it the Dark Chocolate of Speculative Fiction). I'm old enough to remember the sense of dread anticipating the arrival of 1984, which was a switch of digits from 1948 to 1984 as George Orwell's masterpiece went to press a year before I was born. And then, in my youth during the 1960s, I vividly recall the launch of another anticipatory vigil, that being the year 2001 as captured in Stanley Kubrick's (1928-1999) classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
