Like with most clusterflubs there's been an ongoing coverup since that airliner was still airborne. Now, an Aussie dowser and myself dowsed this
problem as soon as I could download the photo files of the pilot, co=pilot, and the plane itself.
I got the first leg, O.K. Those hijackers had flown into Kualu Lumpur with recording GPS's on. So when they took over and blacked out the coms, they
had to dodge back to the Straits of Malacca, to pick up their waypoints. Once there, they simply flew the reciprocal flight path towards Lahore,
Pack. But with all the jumping and jiving, they ran low on fuel, and diverted to a mountain AF base in Northernmost India, and landed safely. But no
one knew about the ACARS pinging the satellite, for a bit. It kept pinging beyond the time in the air, governed by the fuel load. But someone on the
ground, finally killed it. Then near first light, after a midnight refueling, they took off, still blacked out, and flew down the west coast of
India, before swinging out over the Maldives, and then went on a South Easternly track to a watery grave.
Besides the ACARS, a ship's officer saw that plane off of the Coast of India, and people living in the Maldives heard a large jet plane, flying low
and slow, over their heads. The plane on the coast had Malaysian Air markings and paint schemes. But no one wants to accuse India of being part of
this hijacking. In fact, we believe that the Indian A.F. panicked when a plane full of dead Chinese passengers touched down, unannounced that first
night. If windows had blown out, there was no high altitudes left, so it was a long slog, at low altitudes, and slow speeds. Maybe they took the
passengers out and buried them at or near that airfield, but I'm thinking that they just left them alone in their seats.
This makes a lot more sense if you plot these courses on a spherical Globe, with a length of string. Since the incoming flight to Kualu Lumpur was
using Nav. aids, the reciprocal, blacked out one, using only GPS waypoints tried to follow that flight path precisely. But head winds aloft, at the
lower altitudes, may also have shortened their time aloft, to where their plans to hit something important in or near Lahore, fell through.
