MOSCOW, December 30 (Sputnik), Ekaterina Blinova – A Mysterious Chinese blogger seemingly predicted the AirAsia QZ8501 catastrophe, providing warnings to potential travelers some two weeks before the tragic incident actually happened.

He explained that the people that brought down MH370 is going to target another Malaysian airline to destroy Malaysia’s Air travel industry or something like that and it all has something to do with the US (my Chinese is a bit rusty),” a Reddit member wrote, referring to the mysterious Chinese blogger.   Continue reading “A Mysterious Chinese blogger apparently predicted the fate of AirAsia flight QZ8501 two weeks before the tragic incident occurred.”
