From the mouth of the Chinese government, via a commentary, 3 unidentified sources reported that the craft headed westbound. They base this on military satellite data which indicates the plane was flying the normal corridors to the Middle East/Europe.
The commentary also mentions how "silent" the West is on the whole issue compared to their normal reactions, i.e., Lockerbie.
Actually, quite an interesting read, especially with their references to "deep throat", but consider the source:
So, does China really care or are they trying to deflect?

Thanks for the info...
It would be interesting to know if the O2 generators are one overall system flowing from a main stem, or if each mask is connected to it's own separate O2 generator.
Simply cutting a main stem would be much easier than hundreds of connections.

The higher the altitude, the less useful time of consciousness. Altitude
Times of Useful Consciousness
10,000 ft. Hours
20,000 ft. 5 to 12 minutes
30,000 ft. 45 to 75 seconds
40,000 ft. 3 to 30 seconds
45,000 ft and above 12 to 15 seconds or less Smokers have shorter useful consciousness time—an altitude of 5000’ the symptoms and effects for a smoker are equivalent to those experience by a non-smoker at 10000’.

...and the Inmarsat Ping detection did tell them distance from satellite, providing the data for the arch that was presented several pages back. Or was that just conjecture on the BBC's part as well and they never released the actual distance?
