The UNHA-3 is supposedly capable of such a distance...
Unconfirmed so far... But as I said to Pax it's what Missile tests are for!!!
Click the different Missiles and see their range, given with estimated range in MK & an orange radius!!!
If it is possible to reach the West Coast of the US I doubt anywhere in Asia is a problem!

I understand that the range for the missiles are possible, but again, they are ICBMs, Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. They would be used to deliver nukes, not take out airplanes from the sky. Plus, if North Korea fired a missile in that direction, the U.S., China, South Korea and Japan would all know it.
North Korea would never do that to their "Big Brother" state, China is the only country that is still on relatively good terms with N.Korea. They have no reason to take out MH370.
North Korea is not a plausible culprit.
Engine performance data may / may not have been sent after the said stoppage of transmissions?
Either there is data or not. I just find the uncertainty of the statements either way odd.
US investigators are “pursuing possible leads” in the search for MH370, White House spokesman Jay Carney said in the briefing in which he confirmed a “new search area” had been opened in the Indian Ocean. Reuters quotes Carney: There are a number of possible scenarios that are being investigated as to what happened to the flight. And we are not in a position at this time to make conclusions about what happened, unfortunately. But we’re actively participating in the search,” Carney told a regular news briefing. “We’re looking at information, pursuing possible leads, working within the investigation being led by the Malaysian government.” Carney did not specify the nature of the “new information.”

What's frustrating is that the longer it takes to find them the less chance if any of survival of crew whether hijacking or crash. ..
Also no one followed up confirming the area the supposedly had life jackets and the man with the life jackets? ?? That clue seemed to stop.
The Wall Street Journal has issued a correction to its report early Thursday that MH370 flew for hours after losing contact with ground control based on signals from systems in the plane’s Roll-Royce engines. The theory that the plane flew for hours is based on a signal coming from a different system inside the plane – a satellite-communication link – and not the Rolls-Royce engines, the Journal now reports.
Here’s the correction: Corrections & Amplifications U.S. investigators suspect Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 flew for hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, based on an analysis of signals sent through the plane’s satellite-communication link designed to automatically transmit the status of some onboard systems, according to people familiar with the matter. An earlier version of this article incorrectly said investigators based their suspicions on signals from monitoring systems embedded in the plane’s Rolls-Royce PLC engines and described that process.
