I see Craig's List removed the For Sale post regarding the Malaysian 777 as shown in Weezers post #111.

The latest update:

Missing Malaysia flight's path reportedly diverted through computer system | Fox News.

Sounds logical. No distress call = probable Hijack.

I really have to laugh at some of these so-called "Aviation Experts" that are on Fox News giving their opinions - opinions are fine,but when you present them as facts,then that's different.

An example - last night on the Kelly File, she had some experts giving their opinions. When she asked them if the 777 did crash into the sea,would debris still be floating? One of these experts,I won't give his name,but he was a past member of the NTSB, said certainly " The 777 has a fuel tank in its tail and if it's still sealed it would float."

Just to set this straight - the 777 does not have a fuel tank in its tail. Some aircraft such as the MD-11 and some Airbus's do,but not the 777.

Now we are hearing that Malayasia 370 might have flown in the "shadow" of Singapore Airlines Flight 68 and avoided detection.

Here is the simplist explanation

Here is the best explanation I've seen and it survives "Occam's razor."

Certainly possible - but Goodfellow does say in one of his thoughts that a front landing gear tire might have blown on takeoff.

Possible,but wouldn't there be some tire debris left behind?

Yeah - and they're still looking for that 5 gallon bucket of prop wash.

From the information released, it would appear that an experienced jet transport pilot was working the various instrumentation systems. The average hi-jacker wouldn't have the smarts to turn off ACARS - it's quite a complicated system. Most wouldn't even know how to shut down the radios on a 777, as they're all controlled through CRT consoles.

Either the crew are responsible, or some very well-trained hi-jackers are involved.

According to an Internet news source, the Chinese government has said "Maybe the airplane has landed out in our northern boonies. Maybe we should go look."

One of the authorities has announced that 12 of the passengers are transport pilots or "other airplane crew members". Whether that includes the cabin crew hasn't been explained.

The 777 is a complex electronic airplane. I'm familiar with it from my 30 years at Boeing. No way could some terrorist do what has been done in this case. It might never be found.
