I agree that the plane is probably in the ocean, probably in the South Indian Ocean and probably about where it would run out of fuel. The 777 has proven itself as a workhorse and I have read that there have been 3 accidents on the ground due to pilot errors and ground crew errors but none in the air and none attributable to aircraft design. The 777 was the first twin engine plane that was certified to fly 180 minute routes. That is routes over water where the furthest point from landing was 180 minutes flying . That means that the plane could fly on one engine that far minimum. The plane has been flying for almost 20 years. It is a solid, safe aircraft. I believe that will be the case with flight MH370. Some kind of pilot action or error.

It'* sitting in a hanger in Kazakhstan. Comrade Putin is grinning. He is on his way to talk to the captives. Shirtless riding a bear, of course.

Looks more and more like some kind of pilot suicide as the errant flight plan may have been entered before takeoff. This was my thought on March 15 and this theory looks to be more likely now. And it also looks like the southerly course out into the Indian ocean was the one that the officials have determined was taken. Interesting use of the pinging data from the engine systems to determine rough course bearings. This analysis is new in the past couple of days. We have to hope that debris will be found but it has been so long since the plane disappeared that any floating debris may have drifted hundreds of miles from the crash site. It may be years until anything is found and maybe never but time will tell.

I'm starting to think it was a catastrophic event on the aircraft. Too may items went "perfect" for human evil to be behind this. I am speculating something went catastrophically wrong on this super reliable aircraft. the crew tried to return to Malaysia but were unable to control the aircraft, and it flew until it ran out of fuel in the middle of the Indian ocean. It was a "perfect storm" of events that originated with a catastrophic failure on the aircraft. i can't answer why certain items no longer worked, like the transponder or the radio, but I can tell you all of those items that failed were powered by electricity.

One thing says it was planned was that supposedly the errant flight plan, taking the plane to the south Indian Ocean, was pre-programmed into the autopilot BEFORE takeoff. That would indicate that one of the pilots likely planned this. Also there is significant redundancy on electrical power and also radios as I understand the 777. Whatever it was was likely not a catastrophic accident as the plane seems to have flown itself until it was out of fuel. Just sayin that these bits of evidence point more towards some kind of pilot suicide.

The latest CNN headlines intrique me about the idiots that report at CNN. Unless they are trying to hide something.

Flight 370 debris spotted? See for yourself



WTF is that suppose to mean? And what are these satellite images suppose to show? I can see my backyard better with GOOGLE EARTH than what CNN is showing for these ALLEGED airplane parts floating in the ocean.

What'* even funnier, CNN disabled the comments section...
Satellite images show potential objects
