A systems fault that lead to hypoxia similar to the Helios Airways Flight 522 incident could explain the disappearance of Flight 370.
The flight crew attempt a change of direction either back to KL or another airport, which would explain the redirection of the flight. Autopilot carries the plane along what ever heading the plane is on until the plane runs out of fuel and drops from the sky.
Given the range of a flight fueled for a trip from KL to Beijing , the jet could be almost anywhere in Southeast Asia or the Indian Ocean.
The pressurization failure may have been part of a larger cascade failure of other systems that would explain other electrical failures in the cockpit.

As mentioned already on this thread, AirFrance447 disappeared over the Atlantic and no floating debris was spotted for a week.

As for phones ringing: I travel internationally often, all over the globe. Often when you call someone internationally, the phone will ring and ring and not be answered even when the phone is not turned on or in range. A very common phenomenon. It is the system that is "ringing", not the phone.
While what I have posted fits the facts we know, it is ONLY speculation on my part. I wish more people would clarify their theories with the fact they are speculating.
I know that is a boring theory, or guess, but I think it is possible.
Well you know my theory so no need to rehash it. However the reason for planting the evidence would be to satisfy all parties concerned so they can move on. It's the original plane of course. It just takes time to implement some way of destroying it and having the results look like a believable failure to the layperson. Oh and getting it from Nanming to that part of the South China Sea while everyone was screwing around in the Malacca Strait takes time too
Bilk22So why the delay? It takes time to plant evidence and make it look real
Thank you for finding the link and re-posting it.
Why would China want to plant evidence? There are recent precedents of it taking several days to find downed aircraft in the ocean.
Do you believe that the Chinese have wreckage, or the intact aircraft?
What are they keeping from us?
(My thoughts on the Chinese is that they are are slow to share information until they fully understand how it will be interpreted, but not that they are creating false evidence. Just my opinion.)edit on 05925Wednesdayk22 by Bilk22 because: (no reason given)
Sorry, I don't know the main points of your theory, but I can gather most of it from this post I think.
Do you think the plane willingly landed Nanming? Or was it escorted there and forced to land?
For 370 to land there I can only think of four possibilities off the top of my head:
1. The pilots willingly landed there as part of a plot.
2. They were escorted there by belligerent fighters.
3. They performed an emergency landing there.
But what of the passengers? In your theory are the passengers and crew alive in Nanming? Or have all or some of them been executed?
Why would the Chinese want to do this? What are they after in that scenario? How do you hide a jumbo jet that the entire world is looking for?
If I have mis-stated your theory, I apologize. Please correct me. Your idea is much more interesting than mine.edit on 12-3-2014 by Leonidas because: I cant count
I doubt it would show up as much on an Earthquake map. That region of the world gets small earthquakes all the time (hundreds per day if you go small enough in magnitude) so it would get lost in the natural earthquake data. Larger Earthquakes of course are more rare, but the impact of even an intact plane wouldn't register that large, however it might register on infrasound detectors used for nuclear missile launch detection, and infrasound records are being investigated. You probably won't have access to them though.
If in fact this plan did crash in China, would it show up on the earthquake map. I have no idea how to read the earthquake maps. I looked but didn't see anything close.
For someone smarter then me.
Oh that would make it much more interesting then, wouldn't it? Sort of a trap set to catch a mouse? Interesting Guess we'll have to keep tuning in to see what happens next.

The CT part of my mind views your theory as quite viable.
What if all of those engineers/technicians from Freescale were •not• on board that flight?
Would your theory totally change?

about damn time. I really hope it is the plane. If not then we're all screwed...
As a “mark of respect” to the missing passengers and crew Malaysia Airlines is retiring the flight codes MH370 and MH371 for the Kuala Lumpur- Beijing and return route.
“Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of our colleagues and passengers of MH 370,” said the airline in a statement.
Even slightly suspicious incidents are adding to the huge uncertainty around the case of this missing plane.
Photos circulating of the two Iranian passengers who were traveling on stolen passports appear to have been doctored, giving the two men the same identical pair of legs.
Malaysia police told AFP “it was not done with malice or to mislead,” and one photo was simply placed over the other when they were photocopied.
