Seems it has been hijacked. Strange no one has heard from it he hijackers.

What do the EF detectives make of this?

I can only hope that the speculated suicide part by plunging plane into the sea is not true.

I could make a joke but I'll not upset the easily offended at this time on a Sat morning.

Another theory on the disapearance of Flight 370?

I have been thrilled by all the news and theories around the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. Heck! I have even had nightmares about it. Last night I woke up with yet another theory about its disappearance that hasn't been covered so far.

Could it have gotten sucked by a wormhole into another corner of the Universe then redirected back to the Indian Ocean? Imagine you looking through the window and seeing a wormhole with zero G, probably with some minutes of oxygen to enjoy the view even take some pictures until obliteration. Or maybe the wormhole got the plane into a parallel universe that now got two copies of the same plane and people? or maybe sent the plane into the past?

Re: Malaysian Airlines flight missing

It seems that they now believe that the plane is either in the Indian Ocean, or near the frontier between Kirghizistan and China. I am more and more confused.

It may also be at the north pole

Re: Malaysian Airlines flight missing

It would be astonishing if the plane managed to fly through Thai, Indian, Pakistani and Afghani airspace without detection or incident.

The pilot reportedly had quite a flight simulator setup in his home. Hopefully some experts will be able to retrieve data on where he was practicing to fly. May offer additional clues (or not).

It is difficult to see the loved ones now hoping it was a hijacking and landing, as it gives a glimmer of hope their relatives are alive somewhere.

Funny how nobody's paying any attention to the Ukraine any more, isn't it?
For two reasons. A) the crisis in Ukraine is over B) the Crimea is Russian

Maybe it's not the plane itself but what was on the plane.
A speculation of course, but in view of the Lusitania a good speculation

Unlikely but probable! The most sophisticated search has revealed nada so its possible especially given most of the transmission tools in the plane seem to have been turned off deliberately. Add to this the passengers with false passports who simply just boarded.

Until they find it anything is possible including countries allowing it to pass without challenge

The idea is
> that it turned west over Indochina (VN/CB) and only over the Thai territory on the Malayan Peninsula and then over the Northern tip of Sumatra. I also do not believe that the plane crossed Indian territory undetected, but in regard to Pakistan and Afghanistan, everything is possible.

The area in question is now between Kashmir in the NW and Canberra in the SE and between Manchuria in the NE and Madagascar in the SW

It is actually not the first time a plane gets into a wormhole:

Re: Malaysian Airlines flight missing

Well, I suspect he's either a member of the Royal Family or else has very close relations with the Prime Minister. He is clearly being protected by somebody, and nobody seems to be giving much thought to his victims. I propose that the Peelers should undertake a search of the East End and track this villain down, thus solving the mystery once and for all!

Oh hang on... have I been reading the wrong penny dreadful?

My best guess would be MH370 is for the time being tucked away in a hangar in an airbase in maybe Guam or Diego Garcia.

Latest news
So simple : The 777 sits on the airport of Zahedan and is re-painted into Baluchistan Airlines
It will be bought by Russia and be donated to the new Republic of Baluchistan
The passengers will arrive in Karachi and Tehran by bus later
Russian experts will depart to Zahedan to secure a referendum in both Iranian and Pakistani Baluchistan about independence
The two Iranians with the wrong passports will become State President and Prime Minister of the new country
----------------------------------
Baluchistan Airlines will get 30 Sukhoi 100 Superjet

Given all the information and lack thereof to date, let's assume that the plane was hijacked and not crashed or blown out of the sky (assuming that had they wanted to do that, they'd do it somewhere with observers instead of skillfully avoiding ground radar). Without speculating where it may have gone or landed....what would a terrorist do with a 777? With the range on that plane, it certainly could be used to deliver a nuclear device. Is that too crazy a thought? What else would a terrorist want with a plane like that?

A tree house comes to my mind yea it would make a perfect tree house
