The Malaysia Airlines pilot who spoke the now infamous words, “Alright good night,” did so after a signaling system, ACARS, was disabled on the missing Airliner sparking a fury of speculation.
The pilot, speaking to Malaysian air traffic controllers, did not hint at any trouble.
Commercial passenger planes use radio or satellite signals to send data through ACARS — the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System — which can monitor engines and other equipment for problems that may need attention when a plane lands. Although officials have said ACARS was disabled on the missing plane, it had previously been unclear whether the system stopped functioning before or after the captain of the plane radioed his last, brief words to Kuala Lumpur, in which he did not indicate anything wrong with the signals system or the plane as a whole.

The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is the kind of mystery that is bound to start a conspiracy or two, especially when you consider the plane remains gone without a trace.
The Information Age is the age of surveillance, of interconnectedness, of cloud computing, of GPS satellites, of intelligence agencies that can monitor terrorists from space or call in a drone strike from a control console on the other side of the world.

A lot of folks are wondering why a “mystery passenger” was listed on the manifest of missing flight Malaysia Airlines MH370.
The passenger manifest, that has been circulating on the web, shows a mystery passenger’s name blurred out. #84.
A reddit user uncovered the news:
“Apparently on Chinese social media (i.e. netizens), there is a photo of a passengers list which includes all passenger names and information. On this picture, the name of passenger 84 is blurred out. Apparently the rumour among the netizens is that Passenger 84 is Uyghur, an ethnic group in China.”
Authorities are somewhat aggressively investigating several reports of fisherman claiming to have seen the lights of a low-flying aircraft in an area off the Malaysian coast, just below the Malay-Thai border at around the same time of the disappearance.
The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 just went from a mystery to conspiracy as family members of missing passengers have reported cell phones ringing, picking up, and then hanging up.. This happening after the plane had disappeared off radar.
19 families have already signed a joint statement claiming that passengers’ cell phones connected after the flight had been reported missing. In each case, the phone would ring, but the call would be hung up.
The sister of one of the Chinese passengers among the 239 people on board the missing flight rang his phone live on TV twice at 11:40 on Sunday morning and heard it ringing. She called again later that afternoon and heard it ring once more. Continue reading
