Just imagine if the Chinese master the technology behind the command and control system - all American drones will become useless. So the Chinese sent 8 top defense scientists to check the system and agreed to pay millions for it.
Sometime in early Mar 2014, the 8 scientists and the 6 crates made their way to Malaysia, thinking that it was the best way to avoid detection. The cargo was then kept in the Embassy under diplomatic protection. Meanwhile the Americans engaged the assistance of Israeli intelligence and together they were determined to intercept and recapture the cargo.
The Chinese decided that it will be safest to transport it via civilian aircraft so as to avoid suspicion.
The amount of effort put up by China, in terms of the number of search aircraft, ships and satellites, searching first the South China Sea, then the Malacca Straits and the Indian Ocean is unprecedented. This showed that China is very concerned, not so much because of the many Chinese civilian passengers, but mainly the high value cargo and its 8 top defense scientists.
Don't believe the story? Let's wait and see how the episode unveils itself. Or perhaps it will never be known until the next Snowden emerges

May I bring to mind that itobin53 in one of her reports at Allvoices concerning the missing airliner mentioned about 20 high-tech engineers as she said, “Some reports claim there were about 20 high-tech engineers on board who specialized in cyber-military research. Abducting them adds to notions that official misinformation is intentional.”(www.allvoices.com...)
The Artex B406-4 transmits on all 3 emergency frequencies (121.5/243.0 and 406 MHz). The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz. Every 50 seconds for 520 milliseconds (long message protocol), the 406 MHz transmitter turns on and transmits an encoded digital message to the Cospas/Sarsat satellite system. The ELT can be programmed with the aircraft's 24-bit address as well as latitude/longitude information from the aircraft navigation system when used with the Artex ELT/NAV Interface -B (P/N 453-6501). The B406-4 is designed to interface with Boeing's Master Caution System in conjunction with the DZUS mounted cockpit remote panel. The mounting hardware for the B406-4 is compatible with all previous versions of Artex 406 MHz ELTs. - See more at: www.acrartex.com...
1. Distressed mariner/outdoor adventurer/pilot activates beacon (EPIRB, PLB, ELT).
2. Beacon transmits a 406 MHz emergency message containing your Unique Identifier Number (UIN) to the LEOSAR (polar orbiting) and GEOSAR* (geostationary) satellite systems.
3. The satellites relay the 406 MHz emergency message to a ground station called the Local User Terminal (LUT). The LUT calculates the location of the signal by measuring the Doppler shift caused by the relative movement between the satellite and the beacon and forwards the location to the Mission Control Center (MCC).
4. The MCC continues to receive information from additional satellite passes and further refines the beacon position (2.3 nm search radius). An alert message is generated that is combined with the registration information from the database and is forwarded to the appropriate Rescue Coordination Center (RCC).
5. The RCC makes contact with the persons listed in the database to verify the existence of an emergency and gathers additional information about the beacon users. The RCC will dispatch the closest, capable Search and Rescue (SAR) forces.
6. Local SAR forces launch a rescue mission and use the 121.5 MHz homing signal to pinpoint the beacon.
* On average, worldwide, this notification (steps 2 through 5) take up to one hour for non-GPS beacons. For self-locating beacons that provide GPS position data in their first transmissions, the search radius is reduced to .05 nm (100 m) and the notification can take as little as three minutes. (Data provided by Cospas-Sarsat.)

The C406-1 has been tested to meet the rigorous requirements of TSO C126 including 500 G shock, 1000 pound crush as well as flame and vibration tests. The C406-1 is available for use with Artex's low cost whip antennas, rod antenna or a blade antenna. The C406-1 may be interfaced with the optional Artex ELT/NAV Interface enabling latitude and longitude data to be transmitted as part of the 406 MHz message. The C406-1 uses a single coax cable to accommodate all three frequencies. The C406-1 ELT is available for fixed wing with a single-directional G-Switch and helicopter (HM) applications with a multi-axis G-Switch. - See more at: www.acrartex.com...
I couldn't say. I'll start to hear knocking on my door. I'm not that stupid.
However, as I said "It's a theory, It's a view" ? But thank you for your reply, I see it has sparked your imagination.
As I stated earlier.......................It's possible.
While the USA is withdrawing from Afghanistan one of their command and control system (used for controlling the pilot-less drones) was hijacked by the Taliban while the American transport convoy was moving down from one of the hill top bases. The Taliban ambushed the convoy and killed 2 American Seal personnel, seized the equipment, including the command and control system which weighed about 20 tons and packed into 6 crates. This happened a little over a month ago in Feb 2014.
