MEDIA MADNESS

With the tragedy of flight MH 370 the Media has had flights of fancy indeed at times madness led by CNN which has nonstop 24/7 coverage.  There are a few experienced pilots who try to give accurate information.  This is almost immediately overridden by some bimbo reporter determined not to be educated by the professionals.  So the most incredible speculation has taken place since there is nothing else available.

To this is added the incompetence of the Malaysian Government which does not normally have either press conferences or a public relations department as usually the Malaysian Media uses only the government press handouts since all media is government controlled.

This Ad from Malaysian Airlines introducing the Boeing 777 two years ago landed on my desk this morning and it is to say the least unfortunate.  It is an example of carefully wording an advert so as not to find oneself in this awkward position at a later date.  However a further e-mail from a resident in France informed NAUTICAL LOG that the aircraft illustrated is in fact an Airbus A 380 - so the poster it appears is contrived unless Malaysia Airlines got it wrong which would not surprise NAUTICAL LOG.

Of course NAUTICAL LOG hopes that one day the world will know where flight MH 370 went and in spite of the local incompetence and politics the families will find some peace of mind.

Good Watch.
