I’ve decided to create a new post that brings together a comprehensive overview of insights gathered from various Reddit discussions on Airliner videos. My goal is to continuously update the post with any new information, findings, or analyses that come to light.
In light of the suggestion to create a new post, I’d like to share the original comment that sparked this idea:
MH370 Flight: A Fact-Based Timeline
March 8, 2014
00:42 MYT: Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 departs from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Malaysia, en route to Beijing Capital International Airport in China, carrying 239 passengers and crew members. (around 6 hours flight)
01:19 MYT: The last voice communication from the cockpit is made, with the words “Good night, Malaysian three-seven-zero.”
01:21 MYT: The position symbol of Flight 370 disappears from KL ACC radar, indicating the aircraft’s transponder is no longer functioning. — [Location]
–The plane changes its course in a west direction–
02:22 MYT: The last primary radar contact is made by the Malaysian military. — [Last confirmed location]
–plane continues to fly for 6 hours— (Plane was scheduled to land at Beijing airport at 06:30 MYT).
08:19 MYT: Last automatic satellite communication between the aircraft and Inmarsat’s satellite communications network.
— Sometime between 08:19 MYT and 09:15 MYT the plane disappears—
09:15 MYT: The aircraft does not respond to an hourly, automated handshake attempt.
Possible trajectories after the plane stopped responding:
Some possible trajectories were estimated after the last known location which was at 02:22 MYT,
These trajectories were calculated based on the Inmarsat pings which occurred until 08:19 MYT, the only information these pings provide is the distance between the plane and the satellite. Meaning that additional data and estimates were used for a possible trajectory of the plane.
The generally accepted flight trajectory is not 100% accurate, since is based on plane-satellite distance and they just did some calculations for possible routes based on the Inmarsat pings:

The Airliner videos:
Video 1 – FLIR Footage:https://youtu.be/bpiFfp-0abI
Video 2 – Satellite Perspective:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS9uL3Omg7o

The clouds actually move, and it is not a simple horizontal / vertical movement some might expect from a 3d rendered scene object. The clouds are moving realistically:https://imgur.com/a/OsysF20
Clouds shows accurate illumination from the flash:
Another proof of this not a static background, is the clouds are affected by the lighting flash:[Cloud Illumination Demonstration]
Matching Plane Identity:
Indisputable Match – Plane depicted corresponds precisely to the Boeing 777-200ER model, akin to the MH370 aircraft:[Plane Identity Comparison]
Satellite video location:
This is the location of the alleged satellite video, based on the GPS coordinates appearing at the bottom of the video:[Location]
The distance between the MH370 flight last known location and the satellite video location is around 340 miles. Around 6-7 hours passed between the two, a theory could be that the plane was flying in circles for 6 hours or was just flying without a defined flight course.
Satellite angle shot:
According to the satellite video data from the bottom of the video, the source of this footage is most likely Satellite NRO L-32, launched in 2010:
Alternative proposed satellites are:
NROL-23 – Used for oceanic surveillance.
Some redditors have asserted that the satellite footage should depict an overhead perspective. However, it’s worth noting that not all satellite imagery provides a directly top-down view. In situations where the satellite’s position isn’t precisely directly above the target, the resulting shots might exhibit a slanted angle. For clarification, consider the following example:
Another examples of satellite video, this time from an overhead angle:
Some people have suggested that the colors presented in the thermal imagery are atypical for military footage. However, it’s important to understand that the thermal coloring represents a configurable parameter for heat vision cameras. This feature is standard and can be adjusted even after the recording has been made.
Round UFOs claim (grain of salt, dubious source):
This news article claims that rounded UFOs were detected in the vicinity of the MH370 flight before disappearing:
The first peculiarity is seen in the lower left of the screen. A round object appears in the vicinity of Flight 370 (and amid several others), which the radar does not automatically “read” as airplane. Suddenly, this round object take the form of a “plane” on the radar screen and accelerates at a rate of speed that must be at least five times the speed of the surrounding planes, heading eastward, over the South China Sea – and just as suddenly the object stops and appears to hover in place.”
3 Unidentified objects detected by chinese military satellites:
Interesting article about unidentified objects near the flight path:
But debris was found:
Interestingly, it should be noted that debris associated with the MH370 flight was discovered. Taking into account numerous abduction narratives, if one were to entertain the notion that the plane was taken by UFOs, it is conceivable that it was subsequently returned to a different location, but maybe just the plane was returned.
And even if the plane was not returned and was indeed abducted and caught on camera by the military, there is a high chance that some fake debris would have been planted.
Some articles with doubts about the veracity of the debris:
An ellaborate hoax:
The aircraft’s disappearance took place on March 8, and the video in question was first posted on May 19. The individuals behind this potential hoax had a span of 72 days to develop these videos. Their process involved:
Crafting two photorealistic videos depicting the same scenario from distinct viewpoints, each incorporating diverse effects and frames per second (FPS). This could be achievable if utilizing a 3D-rendered environment.
Compiling GPS data and classified satellite insights to ensure alignment with the MH370 flight specifics.
Creating lifelike cloud animations within the rendered scenes, a technically challenging task. Unlike common 3D-rendered clouds, these clouds exhibit realistic shape changes influenced by wind.
Capturing the video through filming a screen. If this is a leaked video, this method could be the most plausible means to avoid obtaining the original classified footage, a potentially more intricate endeavor.
Designing software capable of manipulating the mouse pointer to dynamically alter GPS coordinates while panning across the screen, subsequently capturing the changes.
This intricate fabrication process suggests a meticulous endeavor, prompting us to consider its implications with a nuanced perspective.
The disappearing effect is crappy in the thermal video:
The teleport effect in the thermal video doesn’t look very good, and I agree with that view. Considering the amount of work put into making this complicated hoax, you’d think they would have tried harder to make the disappearing part look more believable. I think this actually makes the video a bit more believable. It makes you wonder what this kind of technology really looks like.
Some common questions:
“Why are military drones and satellites observed in the vicinity of the plane?”
The possibility of drones and satellites being in proximity is reasonable due to the aircraft’s extended flight duration of 6 hours after going off radar. This timeframe allows ample opportunity for their deployment. Additionally, a U.S. military base on Diego Garcia Island, approximately 2000 miles from the location depicted in the satellite video, could be relevant.
“Why does the satellite footage show daylight when the plane lost contact at 02:20 AM?”
It’s important to consider that the final Inmarsat ping occurred at 08:19 MYT. This indicates that the aircraft was still in flight at that time, transitioning into the daytime hours. This confirms a duration of approximately 7 hours of flight after the transponder was turned off at 1:21 AM.
After seeing many fake computer-generated images before, one thing that usually stands out is a noticeable oddness that makes you doubt them right away. But this specific case is different. For me, a gut feeling makes me think these videos are real.
You may say this video is “Too crazy to be true”. Folks, we are already into crazy territory. Remember a guy named David Grusch? claiming we have non-human craft and non-human bodies for 90 years? Yeah, nothing sounds so crazy anymore.
