Flight 370 Passenger Philip Wood Allegedly Sends Message from U.S. Military Base in Indian Ocean

There are rumblings that the passengers of Malaysian Flight 370 may be alive and incarcerated at Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. If this proves to be true, then a likely scenario is that this was a false flag pulled off by the U.S. Government.

Please keep in mind that there are those out there who create conspiracy theories and accompanying evidence as a hobby. With modern technology, it is getting easier and easier to do. This may or may not be one of those times.

The story is that missing Flight 370 passenger Philip Wood, an IBM employee and Texas native, was able to send a picture and message to an internet message board. Below is an excerpt from jimstonefreelance.com:


This image, which appears black was posted as taken in a dark cell by IBM engineer Philip Wood. SAVE IT TO YOUR DESKTOP. RIGHT CLICK IT. SELECT PROPERTIES. CLICK DETAILS, THAT REVEALS THE EXIF. Shills are saying I did not post the Exif. Shills pray for people to be stupid. NOTHING PROVES IT BETTER THAN THE ACTUAL IMAGE. THAT IS WHY I POSTED THE ACTUAL IMAGE. The picture is black because the cell was too dark, but a critical piece of information was embedded in the Exif data, the coordinates to Diego Garcia, where the picture was taken. And it's real; this is NOT a hoax. The coordinates in the picture indicate that the photo was taken within 3 miles of what Google officially gives for Diego Garcia. It is NOT EXACTLY what comes up on Google. It is off a couple miles, so NO ONE GOOGLED THIS, thus helping to confirm its authenticity. I don't know how big the island is, but if it has a runway, that certainly fits.

The picture posted with the following text: "I have been held hostage by unknown military personal after my flight was hijacked (blindfolded). I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack. I have been separated from the rest of the passengers and I am in a cell. My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly."


UPDATE: If Philip Wood´s Linkedin is not embedded below exactly as stated HERE IS THE LINK.

Image Exif data: THE SMOKING GUN

The Exif is intact. Exif data gets embedded in every image by every camera and includes the circumstances under which the photo was taken. It can be viewed by saving the image to your desktop, and then right clicking it and selecting image properties. Hit the details tab. You can see that the image was taken on March 18 with an Iphone 5, with the ISO at 3200 and a shutter of 1/15. The coordinates are included in the exif data because the Iphone knows where it is, and the coordinates are for Diego Garcia. THE FIRST TIME A BLANK PHOTO SAID IT ALL.

Exif can't be rewritten with common software, it can only be added to in fields such as image credits with some advanced applications. It can be erased as well but NOT CHANGED. Photos with the exif intact will hold up in court. If the Exif is hacked and this is not real, the CIA or a really good hacker did this, which I doubt, I'd say it's probably real.

Another smoking gun is that the voice recognition software put the word personal instead of personnel. This is completely consistent with a blind software assisted dial out.

Surrounding this story is the fact that the man who managed to get this information to Farganne (forum member Glitch) was harassed and received many threatening voice mails over it, which is another piece of evidence pointing to this as being real. One thing is certain, once it's posted here on this site the genie is OUT OF THE BOTTLE. I cannot stress how important it is that the GPS coordinates in the photo do not perfectly match what Google says and are not posted anywhere on the web, because it proves that the source of those coordinates did not come from google or Wikipedia, they really did come from the imaging device and it HAD TO be at Diego Garcia when it took the photo.


Could it be possible that our military and/or CIA was involved in a hijacking and false flag cover up?

I think we all know the answer to that.

That does not make this information automatically accurate, but it does make for a very interesting possibility.

I think it should be noted that there is also a Malaysian pilot who is claiming that the Flight 370 story is a cover up. Norman Byrd reports:

An Air Asia pilot has been suspended after posting on Facebook an accusation that the government of Malaysia was "hiding facts" about missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. While many pilots were defending the character of the missing men, a senior pilot demanded that the Malaysian government stop making definitive statements without actually having physical confirmation that the Boeing 777 has crashed.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported March 27 that an Air Asia executive, Tony Fernandes, confirmed through a Twitter post that a senior first officer had been suspended after effectively accusing the Malaysia government of a cover-up.

"The supposed debris…isn't even confirmed to be from the plane yet! Show us the proof and then tell us MH370 has crashed," wrote the pilot on Facebook.

He went on: "Till then stop hiding the facts! It's obvious even to a blind man that there are tons of info the government definitely knows and isn't sharing yet!"

Fernandes noted that the pilot, whose name was not revealed, was suspended pending an investigation.

Below is a video that details the alleged Philip Wood message. How bizarre would it be if America was directly responsible for the hijacking of MH370?

And what would be the purpose?

I am unsure of what to take from this report, other than that I believe it’s possible. My entire opinion on Flight 370 has been that it was never missing. They simply haven’t told us the truth about what happened.

What do you think?


UPDATE: Here is a Google Earth photo of the Diego Garcia Airport with the coordinates from the photo.

    How long do call phone batteries last?

  • Matt

    Conspiracy theorists abound on this site. I agree that the current and the last few past governments weren't great, but hijacking a plane remotely and sending it to a military base in the Indian Ocean? To what end? Was Edward Snowden on this plane? Logically, it just doesn't add up. People will look for clues and try to make connections in these scenarios 100/100 times. The government may be corrupt and inept and capable of countless atrocities, but hijacking a passenger plane just doesn't fit the bill. And for all of you saying Obama is a Marxist, trying to control the internet, etc... get over it. I am a Socialist and he is nothing of the sort. All of you just want to complain and spark irrational fears as if we are going to inevitably go to the war with out own government. He has 2 years left and has been in the White House for 6 already. Don't you think he would have made his move to make this a Marxist country? Universal healthcare is socialist I know many of you will say, Germany has universal healthcare and they are thriving democracy, same with most of the rest of Europe. If you want to live under a true totalitarian regime and take up arms against a true Marxist, go to Russia and dispel Putin and the entire government. Take off the tin foil hats and relax.

  • King Of Bob

    This is completely idiotic. You really think the CIA captured an entire plane full of people, but never bothered to confiscate the passengers cellphones? Pretty sure up his ass would be one of the places they would DEFINITELY search.

  • Sarch7

    You do know the original site that printed this story is a satirical page, right? All these other sites picked it up like it was a real story...how does it go?? A sucker born every minute?

  • Kim Briggs

    "Exif can't be rewritten with common software, it can only be added
    to in fields such as image credits with some advanced applications. It
    can be erased as well but NOT CHANGED." FYI. I don't think this is correct. I've been changing the EXIF data of my photos for 10 years with a perl script. http://kimbriggs.com/computers/computer-software/rename-jpg-timestamp-exif-data.file

  • PabloKOh

    Does this have something to do with Marcos' s gold and the Airforce drill excorting an airliner near Ft. Knox?

  • woodguy11

    What a gypo site. Another Glen Beck

  • woodguy11

    Dean Garrison is a fake. Can't even go to the link he posted. Please stop spreading lies.

  • woodguy11

    This guy is another Glen Beck

    • mudguy1

      You just proved you are a fake with that statement.

  • woodguy11

    this is not a true story.You believe everything you read here? First off ,look who is writting this article.and then he states there was a phone call . Allegedly a phone call. This means there wasn't a call. google Alleged then make your judgement

  • Justin Andrew

    This is laughable. People are so quick to believe an outlandish story. Look, if the CIA or US Government did perpetrate this event, it would take a ton of planning and coordination. So why would any of you think they wouldn't take the necessary precautions to ensure a story like this wouldn't circulate. If you've ever been around Fort Bragg, NC, you have probably been in areas where your cellphone has absolutely no service. This means you're close to a JSOC, specifically Combat Application Group, facility. So even if a guy smuggled his cellphone into his holding area, I guarantee you he would never get cell service to send a transmission. I mean in the basement of the hospital I was Medevac'd to in Texas has no service what so ever. So a holding area on a remote base has service? Come on people.

  • woodguy11

    it this were true it would be all over the news

  • KriticKill

    I hate you so much Disqus, its not even funny. Your stinkier than the turd I shat last week after I finished eating those three bean 'n cheese burritos with that bowl full of chili.
    Anyway, on topic: how does a guy locked in a pitch black cell, in the middle of a secret prison on an island in the middle of nowhere get cellphone access to check in with his bro's? Answer: he doesn't. Also, with these secret and not-so-secret-but-still-official locations they get google maps (and whatever competitors it has I would assume) to block them out.

    • dennodog

      No wonder that picture was all black. It was taken when the phone was up his obama. Wasn't this released around April 1st?

  • jacsen

    If this is a scam or prank, I hope the perpetrator will be severely punished. There are hundreds of family members who are suffering their loss and to give them false hope is about as criminal as it gets. On the other hand, if this results in being accurate...you should be awarded!

    • dennodog

      What I'd like to know is how he got that cell phone up his ass. EEwww. Then again, he did day he was at a US AF base.

  • Rich2741

    Fake. On so many levels it's ridiculous. Please pass this on to all in doubt that this is a hoax; a bad hoax.

    EXIF tag information -

    Without even using a computer, there are several ways to spoof (falsify) the EXIF (Exchangeable Image File Format) data on a photo sent out from a smart phone. In this case, put the phone in a big foil bag (acts as a Faraday Cage: no signals in or out), reach in and take a photo with the phone's camera (black because there is no light). You now have a 'blank' EXIF photo (no data attached) that is ready for data spoofing. This is just one app of those available for the iPhone 5 -


    The scenario portrayed is you pull your cell phone out of your rectal cavity (never mind the circuits have been half dissolved by the caustic bile juices, it's been smeared in feces, and is slick with blood) without making a sound (the flowing blood gushing out lubricates things well) and you decide to send an image to some site instead of sending it to your family, a friend, employer, or some other phone number in the phone's 216 phone number contacts file. The picture is utter garbage, in fact it is black, but lookie lookie here... the EXIF data shows exactly where you are! How convenient!

    Communicating on Diego Garcia -

    The commercial/private phone system is operated by Cable & Wireless, the local British phone company. Phone cards must be purchased to call off the island. Stateside phone cards will not work. Phone cards come in increments of $10, $20, $50 and $100 and may be purchased at Cable & Wireless. When your card gets low you can have it updated at the C&W office. Phone calls range from 40 to 60 cents a minute depending on time of day. If you have a computer, bring it along. Another way to keep in touch with the folks back home is e-mail, Instant Messenger, or webcam. Private Internet access is available through C&W for a one-time $20 fee and at a cost of 2 cents a minute from 0001-0449 and 4 cents per minute from 0600-2400 for a dial-up connection. A private DSL internet connection is available for $95.00/month. There are also Internet Café computers free of charge at several locations for personal use. Do you want to send a card or letter home by mail? Diego Garcia is home to the only U.S. Post Office in the Indian Ocean. The average time for mail to and from the States is about 8-10 days. Regular letters up to 13 ounces can be mailed for free.

    Cable & Wireless is STILL expensive. [In the late 80s, it cost $4 a minute to call to the States on C&W, and nobody could call in. In 1992, the Navy began allowing incoming calls, and in 1995, put phones in all the Q rooms. In 1996 the cost of an outgoing call was $3.30. Today, outgoing calls on C&W are $1 a minute, and inbound calls from the States - using ATT, Sprint, etc. - are between $1.50 and $3.00 a minute. At least C&W is competitive, local, and you get reliable, personalized service].

    "sure", a Batelco Group subsidiary, has services include international telephone, broadband internet and WiFi, GSM mobile, paging services and TV rebroadcast services. They also provide telephone and internet services to maritime customers as well as an extensive portfolio of services to business and Government customer.

    Nobody is gaining access to these systems without an account or a password to someone that has an account. There is no free 'public' WiFi on DG, it is a military controlled island. You are 1,062 miles from the first point of genuine land mass in Sri Lanka.

    Physical requirements of landing a large commercial plane on DG -

    Can the only runway (military) on the island support the weight of a Boeing 777-200ER?
    Absolutely. B-52's (lovingly called BUFF's [Big Ugly Fat F**ker]) regularly come and go. Many BUFF's can be seen lining the runway on Google Earth at DG.

    Is the runway long enough for landing and take-off of a Boeing 777-200ER?
    Absolutely. This plane requires an absolute minimum runway length of 1.515 miles long, at Sea Level, if it ever wants to take off again if nearly empty. The 'average' commercial runway length used by this aircraft is 2.43 miles (12,830') long. The runway on DG is 2.26 miles (11,951 feet) long, which is just fine. Any heavy-duty runway of 2 miles long would work.

    Can you hide a Boeing 777-200ER on DG?
    Absolutely NOT. There are no aircraft hangers on DG that are large enough to hide this plane (which has a wingspan of 199' - 11" and a overall length of 209' - 1"). In fact, there are no hangers even large enough to hold any of the B-52's (which has a wingspan of 185' and a overall length of 159' - 4"). The 4 large hangers on DG have an absolute wing opening of 200' and a body accommodation length of 120'. Those 4 hangers are used for the B-2 stealth bombers (wingspan of 172' and overall length of 69'). Spy satellites (other countries have them too) would pick it up on DG in short order.

    And of course all the US military forces on the tiny, flat atoll are all in on the hijacking and murder of 239 people on board this civilian airliner. There is simply no way to instantly infuse an additional 239 people into housing, feeding, bathing, restraint... besides the fact the biggest plane they ever had there has huge Malaysia Airline marking on the fuselage. If they were all murdered en-route (such as sudden and complete decompression at 45,000' for 90 seconds), there would be one hellava clean up to contend with when it landed. That is a lot of grave space on such a tiny island... unless the military liquefied them as fish bait. Oh, and did you know the British own the island, and the US military is just renting it? The British are extremely strict on the conduct of all there (they even confiscate pornographic material from the servicemen, and will take any media (DVD's, BD's, Flash drives, etc.) to examine it first prior to returning it.) Yeah, sure, OK... you'd have to be retarded to believe the plane is on DG.

    Can the average Caucasian male hide a iPhone 5 in their rectum?

    Absolutely NOT. The iPhone 5 is a flat, relatively sharp-edged, rectangular cell phone. Its dimensions are 4.87" long, by 2.31" wide, by 0.30" thick. The anal sphincter would rip if this were to be inserted. Are there exceptions? Yes. If you were given drugs (such as the homosexually used drug Amyl Nitrate [aka 'poppers', a slang term used by homosexuals to infer they are about to 'pop' your anal 'cherry'], or other specific muscle relaxant) to relax the anal sphincter, and if you had a doctor lubricate and carefully insert it, it would be possible... but one could not do this to themselves. Additionally, if you attempted to walk after the insertion, the odds are extremely great the phone's edges along with the thinness of the unit would start to cut the wall tissue of the colon, thus causing bleeding and opening yourself to the great possibility of serious infection. If the phone were inside the colon, the caustic bile juices would start to eroded the circuitry and disable the phone fairly quickly. Then of course there is the retrieval of the phone... riiiiiight.

    What about the source of the information?

    This guy (Jim Stone) is a moron, a conspiracy theory nut, and should actually face criminal prosecution if this has caused distress to the family of Philip Wood. This story's writer is a moron, stating all sorts of things that are incorrect, such as "I cannot stress how important it is that the GPS coordinates in the photo do not perfectly match what Google says and are not posted anywhere on the web, because it proves that the source of those coordinates did not come from google or Wikipedia, they really did come from the imaging device and it HAD TO be at Diego Garcia when it took the photo.". Whenever someone is -imploring- you to believe them that is a HUGE red flag. On top of that look at all the capitalized letters in place as he pleads, pleads, and pleads some more. Classic. The EXIF data is always exactly where the picture was taken... not miles away. Not posted anywhere on the web? Give me a break... just pull up Google Earth, roll over to Diego Garcia and LOOK at the coordinates on the screen.

    BTW... did you notice it hit the attention of 'the world' on April 1st? (April Fool's Day)


    So, is this enough? Or do I need to continue?

    • John Patriot

      I didn't read all that because I am smartphone illiterate, but I think you are right, especially by the fact that it was published on April first.

  • markinla

    What would the US or anybody gain by this? If this was a top secret aircraft then I could understand, it is not.

  • AFS1970

    Any posting to any website that contains the phrase "This is not a hoax" most likely is.

  • abbeyconway

    The more I read Freedom Outpost the loonier it gets.

  • Sabrina Surovec

    You do realize that exif data can be quite easily faked, right?

    It's also interesting that this poster did not include all of the exif, such as the origin and modified dates. In fact, if you open the blank photo in Photoshop you can easily see that the origin data and modified data are from two separate times. It has indeed been modified.

    I am a professional photographer who works various concert and night events. Even if I fire off test shots that look completely black, there will be visible pixelation when I open it in Photoshop and adjust the brightness, contrast, or other filter settings. There is nothing here at all. It is simply a black rectangle that has been filled. Even if the supposed cell in which this was allegedly taken were pitch black, the iPhone itself would have given off enough light to have detected something. (And also the original poster of the photo claims to have uploaded it completely unaltered, yet the size is a mere 13.2kb. No iPhone takes a pic that small, even in a dark room. I've just done it myself. You're welcome to try. Even if you choose the smallest setting it will be larger than that. If the OP lied about that, then what else could the OP have lied about?

  • CM

    I have two problems with this, even though I do believe something major is being covered up and that plane was landed somewhere: first, I find it hard to believe that someone could put an IPhone up their anus, especially in what would have been seconds he would have had to do so. Second, why would he send a message to a message board? That is harder to do and get into than a normal texting service. Surely he would have tried to contact family first? Why would he randomly send a formal message like that to someone other than family???? Sorry, not buying it.
