Diego Garcia is an American military base, just why would a Malasian aircraft want to land there? Barring them flying nearby and wanting an emergency landing.
As for the fear of anyone recovering the aircraft, let me tell you if it's not in 100 feet of water it is very deep and that takes very specialist equipment and a very expensive operation costs so it aint gonna be Joe Smoe with his scuba tanks.

And you think that if a government wanted to hide something they don't have the resources to bring in a deep salvage operation?

Now the question for you, Which government and what have they got to hide? Because as far as I know (beside speculation of unfounded passengers) it was a normal passenger flight.

That's the problem, no one knows if they do or not. Which is why I said if a government had something to hide. If they shot it down say, and wanted to try to keep that from getting out. Since no one knows what happened to it, there's no way to know if any government does have something to hide or not.

I've long harbored a theory that the US military shot down MH370 because it was heading towards Diego Garcia, and they were afraid another 9/11-style attack was in the works. (Whether it really was terrorists, or everyone was dead and it was a "ghost plane" is beside the point.) If something like this happened, the US government would never want to admit it, and would definitely try to make sure the plane was never found. Sending the search parties off on a wild goose chase to the wrong part of the ocean would be an ideal solution.

I'm still leaning towards a cockpit fire burning through the fuselage. The Navy would have had to have a ship in the right place, at the right time to have shot it down. The odds of that aren't great. But without wreckage, or better a recorder of some kind, there's no way to know for sure. All we have right now are theories.

It could also have been jets scrambled from Diego Garcia. The thing is, I wouldn't blame the military even if this is what happened. They would have been dealing with a civilian plane, far off course and possibly hijacked, heading into a restricted military zone and ignoring all attempts at communication. Shooting it down would have been entirely justified. But the optics of it would be so bad that the decision to cover up the shoot-down would be made immediately.

Do we keep small aircraft there? I was under the impression it was only long range aircraft.

Fighters don't operate out of Diego. It's only a fuel stop for bombers and cargo flights usually, although they do sometimes base bombers there for short times. It's too far away for fighters to operate anywhere useful from, and too small to tie up the ramp space with them.

In the main there are no fighters deployed, but on rare occasions fighters do operate. The Australians deployed F/A-18 Hornets back in 2002 for air defence duties during Operation Enduring Freedom.

They wouldn't need to turn the transponder off. That ship carries eight submersible autonomous ROV's. Each has it's own search pattern and internal hard disk drive storage for captured data. Something around 60 hours of data. These are recovered and the data integrated together onboard the ship. So they can cover hundreds of square miles each day. All while the ship is going across the ocean.

Even if the crew had their own GPS receivers, they wouldn't know where the finds were. Anyone could interpolate the navigation path from the two last known coordinates on the early and latest navigation paths.

Thanks for the info. I've never been able to shake that theory, because the last known radar track of MH370 had it heading in the general direction of Diego Garcia.

In 2001. Once they had things in hand deployments by fighters stopped.

Zapod, youse guys are still being snookered. Look at it this way. Every crew member, and passenger, on MH -370 has been vetted to the Nth degree. The Malaysians will have the numbers of who did this crime, as well as how they arrived in Kualu Lumpur, how long they stayed, and their boarding MH-370. A handful of idiots didn't just come together and decide to hijack an Airliner.

My Aussie friend and I determined that this airliner "BELATEDLY", flew towards Pakistan along the Northern route, not the Southern one. But with the hijackers own pocket GPS sets, they had to go back to the Straits of Malacca in order to reclaim their earlier way points. Using a string stretched over a Globe, puts this into perspective, something which a Mercator Projection Map, won't do.

And while Malaysian Air never paid to have their ACARS's data recorded, in the U.K., this system still recorded the "handshakes", between the RR engines and RR's home base in England. Because the light bill wasn't being paid, the English home base, refused the ACAR's queries. But the ACARS on the airliner would have happily communicated everything.

That ship's deck officer off the west Coast of India, and the dwellers in the Maldives, were just normal folks, who saw and heard something, and then said something.

This whole stinking mess, reeks of "Plausible Deniability". And I don't know of anyone wanting to blow up a Pak shrine, except maybe a Hindu fanatic.

Except the ACARS system was off. The pings were keep alives on the Inmarsat sat network not at RR.

Certainly not out of the realm of possibilities. Its the only place it could have landed if it went on the southern arc. Im not entirely convinced it didn't go North based on sightings in the Maldives etc. The Northern arc takes it pretty close to the Baikonur Cosmodrome if i remember correctly. I remember reading around the time of the disappearance that there seemed to be a flurry of activity at the cosmodrome in the days around the disappearance.

Also another tidbit was the supposed double of that jet purchased legitimately and sitting in a hangar in Tel Aviv. Now im unsure the exact veracity of that information but i have seen it presented from multiple sources, but read for yourself.

Then there's the whole Freescale Semi-conductor stuff. Its such a tangled web. I dont think we'll ever really know what happened. Even if we find the plane.

Can you back that up with contemporary news? I listened to the "Red Dog" search, and they stated that the ACARS kept pinging for about 2 hrs. after that plane had to have run out of fuel. The MSM likes to crop out discordant news, since the original maps showed the Geo-synchronous satellite covering a large circular area of S.E. Asia, on the Globe. They interpolated that the plane could have been at the Northern Extremity or the Southern one. But people plotting courses on flat Earth maps, decided that the plane was flown South, from the Straits of Malacca.

My own map dowsing showed that the bad guys had to get back to an original incoming flight path, in order for their pocket GPS sets to recover the way points. They then flew back over the lorans, because the plane, or planes, they flew in on, coming into Kualu Lumpur, originally did use them to navigate with. This checks out nicely on a Globe, using a tightly stretched string, between Kualu Lumpur, and Lahore, Pakistan. Google Earth may have shown the mean distance from their takeover points to Lahore, but when they had to fly back to the original flight path, they lost part of the fuel needed to make that nonstop flight.

My Aussie friend got the Map Coords. for the sunken airliner, but it's way out in the middle of nowhere. I credit him for finding this second leg of their flight. I thought that the airliner had made a forced landing in some snow drifts in the Himalayas. But still, salt water, can, and would have, shorted everything out, immediately, if they had ditched at sea.

FWIW, IMO, a Boeing 777 ER can fly way too far. I went round trip from Atlanta to Jo'berg, RSA, in May of 2012. We stayed pressurized, but that's still 16 hrs. in the sky. Add to this, if they flew up to 45K feet, and blew out some cabin windows, killing the passengers through apoxia, then that first leg , also had to go, low and slow, after the hijacking.

And that cuts their aircraft's range down even more. But do you really think that our Gov't hasn't used R.V.'rs, or Map Dowsers to ferret out these same coordinates. But this isn't evidence presentable in Courts. I just followed the human sightings, and or hearing, to verify my takes. MH-370 disappeared through a two leg flight, leading it to, gliding down to a watery grave.

I pretty much agree with everything you've said. I feel the same about the whole fiasco. I also think its a strong possibility that the plane went North for the same reasons you do. I'm almost surprised we haven't seen it used a false flag yet. Seems like at about 4 years that would have happened already if it was going to.

Of course it was a double, it belonged to the same airline. Tel Aviv is one of many storage areas that store and part out aircraft. You'll find a couple hundred aircraft parked there. There are four or five areas just like it in the US.

The registration number meets ICAO specifications. It doesn't require that it be a certain color, only that it be a certain size in a specific location. As for them being from Florida, and putting it in Israel, that's irrelevant. They put the aircraft where the storage areas are until they decide what to do with them. Aftermarket parts is a multi billion dollar industry, and has gotten to the point that aircraft that have a lot of life left are being scrapped for parts, because they're more valuable as parts than as entire aircraft.
