I put forward a theory early yesterday night in the DIEGO GARCIA THREAD, that someone has "borrowed" . Hate that, you write something and an hour later, someone makes a post re-wording what you say...
Anything out in the Indian Ocean the US has an "eyeball" on. Why am I not surprised to see these pictures so soon?
The wreckage of MAS370 will be found in the next 24 hours. I can almost guarantee it.
After that...the questions will REALLY begin!!!

Are you all idiots, 2 words. Iron Man. Think of the plot of the first movie. But seriously, this plane took a dive into the ocean, an eye witness on a rig saw a plane at high altitude on fire for 10-15sec, and then china found debris where the currents are heading, from the point where the plane vanished. So what happened to the plane? Who knows, but it happened very fast, it shattered into the ocean, and is now drifting all over, and some if not most of it has sunk. Sorry to say, but last I knew, metal doesn't float by itself without buoyancy. I'm sorry that all these people lost there lives most likely, and I hope somehow they survived, but wake up, it's real world, they are not coming back. They were all in a tin can a mile in the air and it came crashing down within a minute. Your worst fear while flying, came true for them. Peace. (PS: I hope I am wrong, but these things happen, and I am sick of reading all these nut job conspiracies, it was just a plane crash and a needle in the haystack search and rescue.)

while the hijack does seem like a plausible explanation, where's the plane at this point? what are the hijacker's demands? Who is behind the hijack?
Too many unanswered questions.
The whole world is looking for the plane and, if hijacked, it has to have landed somewhere. The country that accepted it would have to be nuts to take it and even crazier to not say "we have the plane, it's here and the hijackers are demanding..."
Ready for a potentially crazy theory?
What if our government knows damn well the plane crashed, but did everything they could to delay its recovery (so that we can never find it.... Or so the remaining pieces can be scavenged and disposed of), while we're expected to believe it was potentially highjacked, just so they can use a plane they made to look like it years later in a false flag operation or coup d'etat against its own ppl (cough*911*cough)?
Then they'll say "look it was highjacked by Iran and now they used it against us! TERRORISM!
Then they invade, take what they want, put a westernized puppet into power, then leave. Or stay for years. Or trigger WWIII. Or initiate NWO movement. You get the drift...
We are now entering the seventh day of the search for MH370. There are currently 57 ships and 48 aircraft in the search. Thirteen countries are now involved. Our priority remains finding the plane. We are following all leads, and we continue to work closely with our international partners. We are grateful for the support of our friends and neighbours, who continue to assist us by sharing their data and their resources as we search for MH370. I speak for the Malaysian people when I say that our hearts are with the families and the friends of those on board the plane.
The aircraft is still missing, and the search area is expanding. Two days ago, the search area was widened to include the Andaman Sea. Together with our international partners, we are now pushing further east into the South China Sea, and further into the Indian Ocean.

I am a commercial pilot and there are far easier ways to secure an airplane. I know this is all about conspiracies but logic dictates that there are easier and smarter way to accomplish the goal of getting a plane.
In fact I know a place in SoCal (and another in Nor-Cal) where I could nab two to three people and make them fly me where ever I wanted to go. All while looking legal, running transponders and talking to ATC.

but, what if shortly after take off or 'when' the hijackers decided to take over, they took everyones mobile phones off of them?
Today Malaysia said it's giving outside investigators data not normally handed over for national security reasons to help solve #MH370
reply to post by Skyfloating
it has to be a Terrorist group.
Re-rout the destination... ?
mobile phones were still ringing after the plane went missing...
no answer though so that means they must be under some kind of control.
This might seem far-fetched. In fact, it is far-fetched. But as our world increasingly relies on Internet-connected devices, the number of attack vectors has increased accordingly – and if there's one thing our regular readers will know, it's that the crackpot theories of today too often become the imminent threats of tomorrow. Let's put our tinfoil hats on and take a look at all the possibilities.
Back in April, a German security consultant and ex commercial pilot Hugo Teso had aviation agencies on his trail after developing an Android app that he claimed could remotely attack and take full control of an aircraft. The presentation called 'Aircraft Hacking: Practical Aero Series' by Hugo Teso became the highlight of the Hack In The Box security conference in Amsterdam, terrifying most of those who had presumably flown in to attend the event. Teso claimed he had developed the terrifying ability to make aircraft "dance to his tune." The problem was, it wasn't true. Teso was basing his findings on the training software use by trainee air traffic controllers, and not the actual operational software.
The possibility is again pretty remote – but many of the guidance and control systems created for modern aircraft were designed before the possibility of hacking over the network was totally appreciated. While it may not have happened this time, we hope that aircraft manufacturers and aviation authorities are taking the threat as seriously as they can.
