What is hostile about suggesting a better source? It was intended to be a friendly suggestion, not hostile.

I don't know if Drudge is credible or not. I simply made a statement based on what I read there. No need to get hostile.
The oil slick is now reported to be NOT from the MAS flight.
The plane parts found are reported to be NOT from the MAS flight.
The MAS flight is reported to have been tracked by the military, flying for 350 MILES or 1.5 HOURS AFTER IT DISAPPEARED.
There aren't any details of GPS / tracker from phones and such devices that would be detectable, being released to MSM, yet, which is suspicious.
The confusion and lack of clarity and details is also rather suspicious as is the confusion over who did and didn't board the plane using fake passports and which nationality / ethnicity they were /are.
I have a feeling that things might progress more rapidly with regards to information being known and importantly released to those with relatives etc on board and the public.
Live: Search for missing Malaysia Airlines moves to west of peninsula as records show it flew another 350 miles after disappearing
This image shows how busy the Malacca Strait is.
The search and rescue operation extended to cover the area earlier today.
The Malaysian military today said it believed the missing flight MH370 may have headed that way after going missing to the east of the peninsula.
A military official said: "It changed course after Kota Baru and took a lower altitude. It made it to the Malacca Strait"
Zaphod, if they lost avionics could they still fly the plane?
Yes, avionics being out do not render the aircraft non flyable. (answering for him)
Rock, do they have an analog compass in the cockpit?
Our 757 and 767 did. Not sure about 777. I would think so.
Considering how far off course they were can you speculate as to my theory posted above and addressed to Zaphod?
The fact that the Military tracked MH370 after it disappeared leads me to believe the military in turn shot it down.

They may have tracked it because it was unidentified.
Malaysia Airlines live: military says last tracked plane hundreds of miles off course
Malaysia's military believes it tracked a missing jetliner by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control
So they won't just say whether the western track is or is not verified. What a CYA world we live in.
i'm sticking with the spacetime vortex. at this point it's not only as valid as any other speculation, it's more likely given the strangeness of this incident.

Thanks for that Jesper. Digging back in my memory to when I got my Private license (1966) I recall that all aircraft are required to have a "whiskey" compass. Correct?
