    It is very odd. All possible theories seem to have a viable counter argument.

    As time goes by the worm hole and UFO abduction theories start to sound less ridiculous.

    Can we not make "funny" comments about this? It's not exactly appropriate.

    OMFG the penny has just dropped. It's not India or Iran its only actually god dam N.A.R.N.I.A.Quick someone alert the authorities.

    I'm very surprised you have missed the obvious flaw in your 'hypothesis'....the airliner depicted in the 'jungle image' is not a Boeing-777!......A 777 has two wing mounted engines, whereas the aircra

    I find it strange that their widening the search to The Malacca Straight.

    The Straight is a bastion of thieves and pirates with an Islamic Fundamentalist element.

    Could the pilots be in on something?

    What's a worm hole?

    A shortcut through space time. You go in one end and pop out somewhere else at a different location and time.

    I find it strange that their widening the search to The Malacca Straight. The Straight is a bastion of thieves and pirates with an Islamic Fundamentalist element. Could the pilots be in on something?

    You would think that if the pilots were all in on a hijacking it would make it much easier to disappear without detection. The problem is that there are so many ways of detecting a plane's location that the pilots alone couldn't prevent. If it is an "inside job" there would have to be so many people in on it.

    It seems an absolute mystery - with the search area widening I wonder if the transponder was switched off or malfunctioned - clearly the searchers appear to have little idea of its location which I would have thought to have been the case if it were to have been tracked by radar, or does this cut off at a certain point?

    It's bloody odd.They found the wreckage of the Air France, a day after it disappeared and this was the Atlantic and its deep waters. My understanding is that the waters in this region is not as deep.Anyone remember the film Airport 1977? That was a plane that managed to land on the surface of the water but it sank. Could that have happened? If it did, where was the distress signal?Could it have been hijacked and landed undetected somewhere? But how do you land a large plane undetected in this day and age? Why is there no ransom?What's the longest period of time that a large plane has remained missing in the last 10 years?

     

    I would think the Adam Air flight 574 crash would be the longest search time in recent events - same theatre of operations too but flight was through a storm.

    Maybe it really has been landed somewhere else? Surely they would have spotted some debris by now. They found bits of the AF flight in the vast expanse of the Atlantic - this is a pond in comparison. As tragic as it is, it's also intriguing as to what's bloody happened.

    I have heard lots of theories / woo woo nut job comments, not sure where I would file this one:

     

    Sophisticated terrorist plot, inside job. Pilot, crew & passenger involved. Turn all comms off, steal plane, fly under radar. Use plane for an attack days/weeks later.

     

    Cuckoo.

    Plausible?

    SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 

    certain The Boeing Company Model 777 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of cracking in the fuselage skin underneath the satellite communication (SATCOM) antenna adapter. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the visible fuselage skin and doubler if installed, for cracking, corrosion, and any indication of contact of a certain fastener to a bonding jumper, and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking and corrosion in the fuselage skin, which could lead to rapid decompression and loss of structural integrity of the airplane.

    That seems fairly plausible, it would explain why no wreckage has been found in the place they are searching, although you would think wreckage would be seen by now in the proposed crash area - I'd imagine that the east China sea and sea of Japan have quite a lot a shipping traffic and busy airspace above them. With that being said, a plane is infinitely miniscule in size compared to the sea.

     

    If the autopilot did continue on its set route is there anywhere remote enough in eastern China for a plane to crash without anyone noticing?

    There would almost certainly be some floating debris such as lifejackets and luggage from going down in the sea.If they somehow went into densely forested land, and there was no fire or explosion it might be quite difficult to spot even from the air unless directly overhead.A 'smart' hijack where they somehow switched off all tracking takes some believing but can't be ruled out.

    Apparently 20 people on board were computer whizzes, working for a company that specialises in military concealment technology. I read it somewhere online, so the source of it must be taken with a huge pinch of salt.

    I thought this - I also don't know what would happen... The Auto Pilot can't land a plane right? So what does it do when it reaches it's destination of nobody touches the controls? Will it fly in circles until it runs out of fuel then just drop?

     

    It's hard to imagine nobody saw anything.

    It's actually true, I saw the announcement from the company regarding the loss of life and they are sad etc - It wasn't a company specialising in military concealment though, but it was all about electronics, and micro boards, and all things communication wise...

     

    Smart radar jammer?

    As ridiculous as it sounds, we probably can't rule something like that out. But like every other long-shot theory, why?

     

    That's the big question... If this is terror related, usually someone has come out by now and said why etc.... Unless there is more planned?

     

    Radar Jam - Steal Plane - Load with bombs - Fly into something...

     

    Or even sell the god damn thing ! Paint job etc - They are £350 million a piece. Or £250, can't remember.

     

    Sounds sooo far fetched, but after 9/11 we are reminded anything can happen.

     

    Who was the Co-Pilot? I wouldn't think for a second if it was Terror related it would be the main Pilot, not with his service history since 1981. You can't open the doors from the outside, so would have to open from the inside...

     

    Do do do do do do do do.

    True... But how much can someone pay for you to die?

     

    Bit about the Pilot & Co - not much...

     

    Zaharie has flown Fokker F50s, Boeing 737s and the Airbus A300 in over three decades with Malaysia Airlines.

    He had over 18,000 hours of flying experience. His 27-year-old co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid had clocked 2,763 hours - having joined Malaysia Airlines in 2007.

     

    Not much else.

    Previous posts mentioned that some mobile phones from the passengers were still ringing. Isn't it possible to track individual mobile phone signals by triangulation?

     

    Anyone know if this has been attempted?

     

    Just gets weirder and weirder this.

    Not for just ringing I believe, but out of the 239 people on board, it's hard to fathom, that nobody has a AppleiPhone with the "Find my phone" app turned on, and thats IF (Big if) the phones are working. I think a representative said from Apple it was against Privacy to go snooping or something. Oh the irony !

    This is strange....

     

    "The last time the plane was detected was near Pulau Perak, in the Straits of Malacca, at 2.40am," Berita Harian quotes Rodzali as saying.This contradicts with earlier reports that the aircraft had disappeared from radar screens 120 nautical miles off Kota Bharu and over the South China Sea, at 1.30am on March 8.The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) had previously said the search for the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, which is missing for the fourth day, had previously been focused around the waters between East Malaysia and Vietnam.Berita Harian also said that military radar noted that the plane was flying about 1,000 metres lower than its original altitude of 10,000 metres after the about turn."

     

    http://my.news.yahoo.com/mh370-detected-above-malacca-straits-2-40am-062617741.html

     

    Did they lose contact at 1:30 or 2:40... Which is it ?

     

    Just seen the latest press confrence too, where they are now saying the "Five" passengers who didn't board the Plane, actually did get on...

     

    Are these people incompetent or what ?

     

     

    Malaysian military now reveals it tracked MH370 to Malacca straitsIn a strange twist, Malaysia's military believes it tracked the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control over the Gulf of Thailand.A military source confirmed with Ruts that the Boeing 777-200ER with 239 on board changed course and made it to the other side of the Malay peninsula."It changed course after Kota Baru and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the military official, who has been briefed on investigations, told Ruts.

     

    So why the silence for 5 days until now ? Make's zero sense. Everyone wasting there time on the wrong side of Malaysia when the Military say they tracked it?

     

    What the?

    You'd think the Malaysian military would speak up straight away to avoid the huge cost of a multi-national search in the wrong place. Unless they have something to hide...

     

    Very fishy.
