As everyone knows by now, an AirAsia QZ8501 Airbus A320 plane with 162 passengers on board lost contact with flight control on Sunday Dec. 28 at 6:17 a.m. Indonesian time, and has not been heard from since. No wreckage has been found and the extensive search continues.
AirAsia QZ8501 has a real feeling of déjà vu, particularly in light of this information.
Incident with AirAsia flight forecast nearly two weeks prior to disappearance
What is truly amazing is that this incident was reportedly forecast on a Chinese blog site nearly two weeks before it unfolded. The following is a full translation from a Chinese ‘Epoch Times’ article posted on Dec. 28.
Tianya Community blog posted a forecast of the AirAsia flight accident on Dec. 15 and warned people to keep away from Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia. (captioned post from Internet)
An Air Asia QZ8501 airbus with 162 passengers and crew on board lost contact on Dec 28. News broke out on Sina Weibo that the Tianya Community forecast the accident on Dec. 15 and warned people to keep away from AirAsia and not become another sacrifice like MH370 earlier in the year. The post became a hot topic after the accident.
In the early morning of Dec. 28, AirAsia flight QZ8501 took off from Surabaya to Singapore and soon lost contact with air traffic control at 7:17 a.m. Beijing time. 162 people, including 7 crew members were on board. No Chinese passengers were among them.
Blogger Han Lu posted on Weibo a captured post with the comment: “This friend forecast the Air Asia flight accident back on Dec. 15.”
The original post was sent to Tianya Community with the caption “Malaysia Airlines went broke, the invisible hand is reaching out to AirAsia”. Its content goes: “An international black hand [this is usually used as a metaphor for a shadowy organization that does things behind the scenes] worked on the hijack of MH370 and the shooting down of MH17. As the sixth biggest airline company in the world, Malaysia Airlines has gone broke with the present state of affairs. Now the hand is targeting AirAsia. Like what it has done to Malaysia Airlines, it will bring AirAsia down because both airlines belong to Malaysia. As the hand is too lethal and overpowering, Chinese passengers are advised to keep away from AirAsia and not become another sacrifice like MH370.”
The blogger sent another post later that night to explain: “It should be a happy thing to travel, study, or do business abroad. But making the wrong choice of Malaysia Airlines or AirAsia can cause loss of life. Please be careful and spread the news to friends and families.”
One more post was sent out at 11:12 p.m.: “This piece of news can be life-saving. Don’t take Malaysia Airlines or AirAsia for trips. Take heed of the advice. It will be too late to regret when you re-read this post after an accident happens.”
On Dec 16 and Dec 17, the blogger still reminded people: “This concerns life. Everybody has to take it seriously.” He stressed: “Keep away from Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia. Treasure life.”
The blogger sent 39 related/repeated posts in those few days.
Other bloggers were amazed after QZ8501 lost contact, and many conspiracy theories have been circulated.
CEO Tony Fernandez sells 944,800 shares a week before AirAsia flight disappears
Additional breaking news has surfaced that Tune Group Sdn Bhd, a leisure and entertainment corporation founded by Tony Fernandez, AirAsia group CEO, and Malaysian entrepreneur Kamarudin Meranun, sold 850,000 shares in Tune Insurance Holdings Bhd on Dec 22 and an additional 94, 800 shares on Dec. 23, according to a filing with Bursa Malaysia. Is this simply a coincidence if it is true?
Like Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, everyone is still in the dark as to what happened. What do you think after reading this?
