Whats iran doing lately?
Maybe secretly jumping up and down for joy because their buddies in Pakistan now have a 777 to play terrorist with? Seriously though .. the last thing I read coming out of Iran was some nutter Imam 12ther saying that when their imaginary 12th Imam shows up, he'll decapitate all the leaders in the West.
Appearing on Fox & Friends last week, retired United States Air Force Gen. Thomas McInerney speculated that the missing Malaysian passenger airliner had been intentionally flown to South Asia where it could be used as a delivery vehicle for conventional or nuclear explosives by terrorist actors. On Tuesday, McInerney repeated that claim and said that the recent actions of the Israeli and American governments lent credence to that theory.
McInerney and Fox host Steve Doocy revealed that some personnel at Boeing agree that the missing plane could have flown to Pakistan. “My course of action that I gave you last Friday that, number one, it was hijacked and, number two, we ought to look at Pakistan and Eastern Iran was a course of action that just wasn’t arbitrary,” McInerney said. “That’s all I can say now.”
Aaaaah! So it flew all the way to Pakistan, skimming the surf no doubt and then the treetops when overland to avoid detection by anyone! Some feat of piloting skills right there!
Next they'll be telling us that the highly organised team of hijackers inched out across the wings and stuffed the engine exhausts with balled up socks stripped from the passengers to muffle the sound too!

Having said that
It's a lot more probable than any number of
possibilitieshair brained theories floating about the interwebs.
I've scratched off Aliens, inter-dimensional shifts, landing on an aircraft carrier and group ascension.
An aircraft carrier? Seriously? Which morons thought that one up?

There is a world of difference between flying at 35k ft and 3500ft, not least the difference in air pressure, which affects things like flight controls and fuel consumption. There is no way on this earth the plane could have made it all the way to Pakistan (at the very edge of its range anyway in normal flight) flying "under the radar".
lost in space
I know we are being directed over and over towards the plane, but wouldn't have been easier to take a smaller plane that didn't have passengers? You don't need a 777 for a dirty bomb.

Actually, if I was going to go to the trouble of stealing a 777, I would be worried about fuel consumption to ensure I could get the aircraft to where I was supposed to...
Would the plane have to had refueled somewhere to make it to Pakistan?
No. It could make it there. Even flying under radar at 5,000 feet.
At least, that's what the talking heads on TV said.
Well in that case, I believe it! ......it's probably pay back for Osama bin laden , ....the radical Muslims have stripped the plane, painted it, created a fake flight manifest. And it is now a ticking bomb....at least that's one of my opinions...or.....an even more evil would be to have the plane reappear, with family members and the threat off a nuke bomb on it. While trying to force an unauthorized landing in the US, would make the airforce jets have to scramble and shoot it down. ....thus killing all the family members on the plane and tormenting millions of people who have been waiting to find it and the people. Only to watch them get shoot down and killed....Just think of the psychological warfare that would do!
