Just heard on NBC that the 777 has 10 generators and all of them would have had to fail to kill the transponder. I heard earlier that the transponder can be disabled with a circuit breaker.
Makes one wonder about the onboard server.
MH370 search: confusion over theory that Malaysian airliner turned back – live
Interpol: plane’s disappearance probably not terrorist linked
Psychological probe into background of passengers and crew
Photos released of Iranian passengers on stolen passports
18-year-old trying to migrate to Europe, ‘not a terrorist’
Search area extended west on theory the plane turned back
Where and when was the plane last detected?
This is perhaps the most confusing aspect of all. Malaysia Airlines repeatedly said that Subang air traffic control – which covers Kuala Lumpur airport – lost contact with the aircraft at 2.40am, almost two hours after takeoff, but later revised its last known contact to 1.30am.

That appeared to make more sense, since its last recorded position was 120 nautical miles off Kota Bharu on the east coast and online flight data showed it at that spot about 40 minutes into the flight, at roughly 1.20am, heading towards Vietnam across the South China Sea. The pilot of another aeroplane closer to Vietnam said that just after 1.30am he relayed a call to MH370 at the request of Vietnamese air traffic control and heard mumbling at the other end but then lost the connection.
A mid-air explosion: The lack of debris could be explained by it falling into Malaysian jungle
A terrorist attack: Director of CIA has said terrorism could not be ruled out
Power failure: Possibly caused by deliberate cutting of power to communication instruments
Electronic warfare: 20 passengers on board were experts in this technology.
Hijacking: Radar data indicates the plane might have made a U-turn.
A pilot error: There is a chance of them in all air mysteries, claim experts
Structural failure: Possibly involving damage sustained by an accident in 2012
Pilot suicide: There were two large jet crashes in the late 1990s caused by this
Aeronautical black hole: Plane is stranded hundreds of miles from current search area

MARANG: Eight villagers here lodged police reports today claiming that they had heard a loud noise last Saturday coming from the direction of Pulau Kapas and believed it was linked to the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight on that day.
All of them, from Kampung Pantai Seberang Marang, made the reports at the Marang district police headquarters at about 10.30 am.
One of them, Alias Salleh, 36, said he and seven fellow villagers were seated on a bench about 400 metres from the Marang beach at 1.20 am when they heard the noise, which sounded like the fan of a jet engine.
"The loud and frightening noise came from the north-east of Pulau Kapas and we ran in that direction to find out the cause. We looked around the Rhu Muda beach but did not see anything unusual," said the lorry driver.
Replying to a question, Alias said they lodged the police report so that it would be of help to the authorities who were trying to locate the missing MAS aircraft

That's what I have been thinking the whole time. Somebody stole it. Now who?
I hate to be callous, but I guess we'll know that if it hits a target. Sigh....
That video shows a woman holding the printout, but she doesn't look like interpol to me. Here's the video:
And, if this is the obviously photoshopped image you are referring to, it was released by Interpol, only published by Dailymail. Not fair to pick on Dailymail, when they didn't appear to do the photoshopping...
Oddly, once the shopped image was pointed out, Dailymail removed the shopped image, leading people some to believe they were the ones doing the shopping. Why? Were they told by Interpol to remove the image? Makes no sense, as it is widespread by now. So, did Dailymail take one for Interpol? Curiouser and curiouser.

Someone commented about the legs in the Daily Mail. Ha.
For example, foreign cops operating in the

Cannot agree more. And, did anyone see the story now, slamming the pilot as a party guy, that had chicks in the cockpit, smoking, hamming it up in photo's, posting on FB? Looks like an attempt to discredit the guy. Admittedly, in one pic, he looks high as a kite, but, so can blinking mid shot cause that effect.
