Personally, there are too many variables to this.
It could have been a "repo" job....but then if this was a 'repo' job, the company seeking the return of the airliner would have no need to keep
the plane 'hidden' for as long as it has been.
The plane was "tricked out" to be a fuel tanker....which would be the reason for the possible 'terrorist' thoughts and concerns.
The plane may have crashed....and because of the terrain, etc. of/in Africa, locating it has been nearly impossible.
The plane has been "changed" to hide its identity and is "hidden" so as to not allow it to be seen or identified from satillite detection or quick
visual inspections. In this case, the aircraft could be in a remote hanger, etc.
The plane was stolen and torn down for parts.
It could be that the plane is part of an insurance scam, planned by the owner. The plane is then torn down for parts and the owner makes out like a
bandit in this case.
Point in case is: The plane is missing and the case is far from being closed. There is NO feasible conclusion as to its disappearance thus
"anything" is possible in connection to this case. Loads of questions....unanswered....and remains to be an episode in the upcoming "In Search
