I have another possible .......was gonna say explaination but I think its more of a motive.
Nothing to do with hijackers nor dodgy joyriding pilots.
I'm currently piecing things together but hey.
Petronas Twin Towers
Thousands of people were evacuated on 12 September 2001 after a bomb threat was phoned the day after the September 11 attacks destroyed the World Trade Center towers in New York City. Bomb Disposal squads found no bomb in the Petronas towers but they evacuated everyone. Workers and shoppers were allowed to return three hours later, around noon. No one was hurt during the evacuation.
Tower One is fully occupied by Petronas and a number of its subsidiaries and associate companies, while the office spaces in Tower Two are mostly available for lease to other companies. A number of companies have offices in Tower Two, including Huawei Technologies, AVEVA, Al Jazeera English, Carigali Hess, Bloomberg, Boeing, IBM, Khazanah Nasional Berhad, McKinsey & Co, TCS, HCL Technologies, Krawler, Microsoft, The Agency (a modeling company) and Reuters.
But here's another interesting bit.
The Seven Sisters or should I say
The "New Seven Sisters"
The Financial Times has used the label the "New Seven Sisters" to describe a group of what it argues are the most influential national oil and gas companies based in countries outside of the OECD. According to the Financial Times this group comprises:
China National Petroleum Corporation (China)
National Iranian Oil Company (Iran)
Saudi Aramco (Saudi Arabia)
Once the signals from the FDR and CVR stop functioning they will give up the search. They got about 24 hours-36 at most then there is little more they can do.
Why the Bureau got involved I don't understand. One thing they hate is being given an unsolvable case.
I'm working on piece for the paper about parallels to other incidents-after they call off the search I will finish it.
I reckon the plane could have landed at Christmas Island. Emergency landing.... off course ?
I have seen planes land on dust roads here in the outback. They are told via channel the distance that they have to land.
Arkaroola has a small landing strip and planes are in and out of there daily. That airstrip could take an RAAF Hercules Jet easy...
lol yeah.. that is probably where it is... or maybe they pushed it into one of the hangers, or covered it with some kind of camouflage so not to be detected by oigle ...
it is all possible...
