The twilight zone. Or the Triangle. It’s in an alternative world.
“The fact that we are unable to find any debris so far appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet,”
I disagree....A midair breakup would leave a debris field measured in miles, ( think of throwing a bag of popcorn from a auto going 60 MPH), however a nosedive into the ocean could compress the metal into a ball taking most everything to the bottom.. Air France 447 left very little floating debris ......IMHO
