It's getting to the point where just a crash in the bottom of the ocean feels the most far fetched to me. Crazy!

Various pilot forums are suggesting that this is would actually be doable on paper, but in practice... even a pilot as experienced as the captain of this plane would find it difficult, plus the organisation and timing would have to be so perfect it really throws it into the realm of pretty much impossible.

Still, most likely is still that it's in the ocean somewhere, and if that's the Indian Ocean, pretty likely it will never be found. Or at least, will be a mystery for a very, very long time.

It will be interesting to see how it's publicly handled over the next few days. If misc. governments and authorities suddenly start to be leaning very heavily towards the 'Southern' arc or back to a water crash in general, without giving any reasoning for why they are so sure, it might actually suggest that they do really think it successfully went north somewhere, they have a decent idea of where/who is responsible, and they're just deliberately trying to shine the spotlight elsewhere and give the impression to 'others' that they've gotten it wrong.

It's okay, everyone, stop what you're doing. Mystery has been solved.

Personally, I don't believe that's the wreckage. I think that's the work of one Charles Widmore.

You know a situation is really, really bizarre and unprecedented when this explanation actually seems plausible and fits the current public knowledge as well as or better than most other theories.

I think that theory is the most creative and intriguing but I find it hard to believe only because it would require that the pilot be a complete mastermind (according to other pilots this is much easier said than done). So unless he's like the BBC version of Sherlock, I don't know...

My prevailing theory is still that the plane went off course (don't know about motivations of pilot) and was subsequently accidentally shot down by any of a number of countries who aren't exactly prone to public disclosure.

Forgive my stupidity, but you mean to say your friends suggest that kind of fire would have destroyed the plane well before then?

Well, perhaps the fire was put out through the efforts described in the article, but incapacitation set in for some reason and the plane just continued to fly off into the Indian Ocean. There was also an oil rig worker in the South China Sea who claimed that they saw a plane on fire in the sky.

Yes. In under an hour. A fire so strong that it incapacitated the pilots would have destroyed the plane. And in other plane fires the pilots always radioed for help -- example being the Swissair crash from 1998.

The Associated Press ‏@AP 5m BREAKING: Malaysia says files were recently deleted from flight simulator of pilot aboard missing jet.


Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Some data deleted from flight simulator - CNN.com

Quote:
(CNN) -- [Breaking news update 5:48 a.m. ET, March 19]
Some information has been deleted from the flight simulator found at the home of the pilot, Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said. Forensics is trying to recover it, he said.
At the news conference, he also said:
-- Malaysian authorities have received background information from all countries with passengers on board the plane except Russia and Ukraine. So far, no information of significance has been found, he said.
-- Malaysia has received some radar data, but "we are not at liberty to release information from other countries."
-- Reports that the plane was sighted by people in the Maldives are "not true."
"I can confirm that the Malaysian Chief of the Defence Force has contacted his counterpart in the Maldives, who has confirmed that these reports are not true," Hishammuddin said.

Hishammuddin keeps using the word "confirm." I do not think it means what he thinks it means.

I can't help but feel absolutely terrible about the families of all the passengers. The idea that they may never get closure on what happened is just heartbreaking.
