" Many real experts believe it was taken to Pakistan to a Arab terrorist base of some sort "

Err... can you define "real experts"? You are not referring to posters on conspiracy websites, are you?

They're wasting way too much money on this. Just give it up and call it an unsolved mystery. Use the millions of dollars on something worthwhile.

Yes, that theory has been doing the rounds, CGS. All theories still hold almost equal water until we get to touch a piece of that plane. Conspiracy theorists' heaven.

The Chinese are convinced otherwise, however, as, despite this article's quote: " 'It will likely take another two months before any new equipment is in the water', Truss said", they believe in the 'pings' and have a ship approaching with new equipment and a deeper submersible all ready to go, outside of the coordinated international effort there.

In the meantime I have put my brain on a back burner... if the best of us cannot figure this one out. Open mind time! :8)

Many real experts believe it was taken to Pakistan to a Arab terrorist base of some sort and will be used as a flying bomb. I have no idea why there is no reporting on this.

Lack of credibility springs to mind.

So where is it wipeout? It would of been easy to land it at an underused airport.

I agree, feel sorry for the families but time to move on.

How long did it take to find the Titanic.

They may be looking too far south.

Just a thought - early in the investigation, a Vietnamese plane identified and photographed what appeared to be an aircraft door, which was not seen again the next day when ships went to the area.

Hear me out on this...suppose it was in fact a door from the aircraft which sunk before the ship arrived or was just missed by the ship. It would have implied that the door had been opened/separated from the aircraft (whether intentionally or not). That would have led to immediate decompression and possibly some persons being sucked out of the plane, while the remaining passengers still strapped into their seats would likely have died from lack of oxygen/cold.

While the plane's route may have been reprogrammed, the wrong waypoints could have been entered by accident during the confusion, and the pilot may have subsequently lost consciousness.

Even though Inmarsat data points to a southern turn, the distance travelled would not have been as great because the poor aerodynamics caused by the loss of the door would have reduced the effective range of the aircraft.

Any thoughts?

Yes, anything's easy to conspiracy fantasists.

As to where it is, probably in fragments at the bottom of the sea, after crashing or running out of fuel. I'll go with the opinion of the people who are spending so much time and effort searching a remote region of the Indian Ocean, on the assumption that they are working with the best information they have.

If that turns out not to be the case, the idea that it disintegrated or blew up somewhere on or near its original route doesn't seem too crazy; just unlikely, now that radar information has indicated otherwise.

Whatever happened to the discovery in the Bay of Bengal? Last I heard of that, it seemed credible.

From what I have read, it had to do with the Flight Termination System that allows AWACS airplanes to remotely control the plane. The question is, when did the AWACS airplane take off from Kadena, into Singapore, and what was its intended destination, (most likely Diego Garcia). Allegedly the plane was seen flying low over the Maldives. Most logical conclusion, it landed at Diego Garcia and it is being used refurbish a second plane in Israel for the so called attack. I suppose another lie like 9/11.

Or maybe it crashed in the ocean. Toss up.

Many real experts believe it was taken to Pakistan to a Arab terrorist base of some sort and will be used as a flying bomb. I have no idea why there is no reporting on this, a US General has repeatedly asserted he believes we will see the plane again. Sadly it is doubtful if that is true that they kept the passengers alive

There is no way this could happen, first not enough fuel, also if this plane was taken to Pakistan to a Arab terrorist base of some sort. China would have blown the place to hell!! No if and whats or butts!!!

@ChrisGersan From your former posts I already noted that you are not the brightest candle on the Birthday cake. But you surely know "opinions are like a..holes, every has one but no need to show it around."
