An Air Asia Air Bus 320 aircraft has disappeared with 162 people on board. Flight 8501 was traveling from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore when it disappeared, the pilot’s final communication was a request to ascend to 38,000 feet to avoid bad weather.

This is the third apparent loss of a Malaysia based large passenger jet this year following the unexplained disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 in March and the Ukrainian military shoot down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 17 in July over Eastern Ukraine.
There is no point pretending I have any idea what has happened to this aircraft, the story that we are being fed makes absolutely no sense. We are told that the flight was traveling well above 30,00 and crashed in the water without the pilot giving a single distress signal.
It takes several minutes for a plane to fall from that height, the pilot cannot have failed to notice the jet had stalled or failed otherwise and was falling into the ocean yet there are no further communications. It also makes no sense that the debris has not yet been conclusively located as these re very busy seas lanes.
One really interesting story that has emerged regards the “Black Hand” warning delivered on a Chinese web forum supposedly on December the 15th. The message warns people not to travel on Air Asia stating that the same people or entities behind the MH 370 and MH 17 incidents were poised to strike again at the Malaysian Airline industry.

Message translation from Reddit user lolrus_bukkit
“Black hand (a metaphor for a shadowy organization that does its work behind the scenes) has hijacked and shot down MH370 and MH17. This has pretty much killed the 6th largest airline: Malaysian airline. Now the black hand are targeting AirAsia to ruin this airline cause it too belong to Malaysia. Given how powerful the black hand are I suggest that all Chinese thinking about traveling to avoid Air Asia, so that you don’t disappear like those on MH370.
He (Landlord) then goes on to add: You could be happily vacationing, working, or studying aboard, but if you go on Malaysian airline or AirAsia you’re dead, be careful.
Tell you’re relative and friend this message (to avoid Malaysian airline and AirAsia)
Somebody then ask how do you know this? and another laughed at him calling him a conspiracy nut.
Landlord came back to say: all you civilians get away (from the airline) You can still hid, all those that see the post can still save themselves Once everything cool down,”

The authenticity of this message is impossible to verify, it is very interesting nonetheless. It is already becoming clear that this is another event where the truth will likely be never revealed.
