If there was a fire why did they switch the transponders off and if you say the fire destroyed the transponders why not the rest of the plane, as it
flew on for several hours after?
There are any number of reasons why the transponders would have failed, and this was outlined by experts in the field more than once. It's not
unusual for a plane to suffer various technical and mechanical faults due to fire, it's perfectly reasonable that a fire could have damaged all kinds
of equipment on the plane without destroying the entire plane.
Fire needs oxygen. If a fire broke out damaging equipment then it's completely plausible that when the oxygen supply was damaged by that fire it
would have burned out and could have continued on its cruising path until fuel ran out.
The most LIKELY scenario I have seen is that there was a fire on board damaging equipment, the pilots changed course to locate the nearest airfield,
but were overcome by smoke and fumes. The oxygen was limited and once that oxygen had been used the fire was unable to sustain itself and the plane
continued until it ran out of fuel.
There is no other scenario that makes any sense, none. Given all the available evidence we should go with the most plausible scenario, and this is the
What are the alternatives?
The plane blew up? No evidence of that at all. Why divert over the ocean?
The plane was hijacked? No evidence. Why divert, why no radio contact?
The plane landed somewhere? No evidence. Someone would have noticed an airliner landing and it would have been found.
Alien abduction? No evidence.
While any scenario is horrific to think about, we can at least be thankful that those innocent people might not have known much about what was
happening. If it was a fire (which most in the industry seem to believe it was) then the people on that plane would have lost consciousness very
quickly, they would have likely passed away within ten minutes.
