    That's inaccurate. If you read carefully, the article says the plane could have flown further. Not definitely tjat it definitely did.

    My daughter and I had considered this possibility. We worked out a radius of where the plane could have flown to and the area is huge. From India to Indonesia.

    Read the article carefully...

    Wall St Journal has info from Boeing from the routine maintenance and monitoring programs from the two engines that the plane had flown about 4 hours since last contact.

    That's right. So it could have flown in circles as well.

    My theory ... One or both of the pilots turned off transponder and flew back to Indonesia or southern Thailand to use plane/ passengers/ cargo for ransom but encountered HAZE and crashed into ocean. That's why Malaysia so secretive/ evasive

    This incident will likely turn up to be a huge headache or embarrassment for the MAS airline and govt, either showing their incompetency or their lack of transparency... If what WSJ says is true and the transportation minister continue to deny Boeing's latest information.

    This is such a strange one. I can't believe that in this day and age that we don't have the technology to locate the whereabouts of something as big as a commerical plane.

    How did they know that the plane's engine continued to run?

    Many contradictions. Boeing says engines were running for extra four hours, malaysia says cannot be.

    But Malaysia also asks US to check Indian Ocean which is about 3 hours flying time.....

    So if Malaysia doesn't believe engines were running that long, why search the Indian Ocean?

    ^ As I said, MAS is not the best at competency and transparency and coordination...

    Having the bomoh come in says it all.

    Is it a hijack, plane flown to a military base, mobile phone signals blocked and now a stand off?
