I don't see that happening unless it was an attempt to fly into Petronas Towers.
Just because 9/11 happened doesn't mean all of a sudden pilots all over the world feel an urge to crash planes into buildings.
Don't get me wrong, there is (IMHO) no indication about bad/evil intent whatsoever.... they try to paint the pilot(s) as suicide terrorists and other stuff because this is the screwed up world we live in where SUCH seems more likely than a fire on board? Give me a break. In reality the pilot likely faced a HORRIBLE situation with a fire outbreak literally in the middle of nowhere and no way to land "any time soon"...and he is likely a hero having tried whatever he could to save the plane. Everything else is tabloid media nonsense, even the SPECULATION that someone manually shut of pingers, comms etc. It is my understanding that a fire in the electronics compartment, in the right location, can trigger those devices going offline...it's a very unfortunate chain of events but it is possible.

And how did they plan on the exchange and escape .....
Sounds like more hogwash to me ...

I'm sure we'll never get to the truth of what ever happened.

It will take an crisis of considerably greater magnitude to get us out of this chapter.
As I said above, "It's going to take a crisis of considerably greater magnitude to get us out of this chapter".
Such as another Malaysia airliner being shot down.
