Teams searching for the wide-body jetliner that vanished off Vietnam almost certainly will locate it and figure out what brought it down, according to aviation investigators and case files spanning four decades.
Planes seemingly lost without a trace in waters miles deep have been found by remote-controlled submarines, or investigators gathered enough clues to determine what happened, according to accident reports since 1970.

An act of terrorism lost in history
It was the first bombing of a 747 jumbo jet. The 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie used a similar method, with explosives placed in a radio inside a bag and detonation by timer; no passenger accompanied either bomb. The 1985 explosion and downing of the Air India plane occurred within an hour of the fatal Narita Airport bombing. It was also conducted by Sikh terrorists from Canada. In this case, a bag exploded on the ground before being placed on another Air India flight. Evidence from the explosion pointed to an attempt to blow up two airliners simultaneously.
I’m not saying it’s Cthulhu, but ... it’s Cthulhu.
Certainly appears to be a bomb.
Somebody got to excited about writing a story about mysteries of the deep, that they are making fools of themselves.
The entire seas around Cambodia, Malaysia and Vietnam in the TOTAL sea area where the Malaysian airliner could have gone down is---------------
less than 250 feet deep!
well the whole airplane is a tube filled some people with diesel fuel surrounding them and a lot of electrical stuff in between. flying along at 400 knts. not similar but a propane car is a bomb and many on the road at one time going 60-70 mph is a catastrophe.
My personal opinion is that it did not crash.
I think it accidentally went into orbit.
“not similar but a propane car is a bomb and many on the road at one time going 60-70 mph is a catastrophe.”
Well yes, but jets run on fuel that is more like kerosene, hardly anything like propane. No, I would never have a propane powered car. Fortunately for me, I no longer have or need a car, and have not had one since 2004.
“My personal opinion is that it did not crash.”
Are you implying that it landed somewhere? Possible, but very farfetched.
Yes. Even EgyptAir flight 990 after been dived into the ocean had some, but not a lot of, debris that was found floating at the surface of the ocean.
It was clearly caught in a Tractor Beam, possibly by the Starship Enterprise from some unknown future year and is probably being held for examination.
Of course, though the waters of the primary search area are not miles deep. That straight between Malay and Viet-Nam is not the Abyss. I don't think you will find waters there more than 200 feet deep, and less, on average.
The longer the sea-search comes up with zero, the higher the likelihood this was a very sophisticated hijacking. A fully fueled 777-200 SR could be in Somalia, or due east in the southern Philippines or Banda Aceh.
What is the likelihood that the plane is sitting on the ground in some jerkwater muslim stronghold?
Probably fairly good odds.
I am sure that satellites have already been searching for just this possibility.
That is my gut feeling as well. But the nagging implication of that thought is it needs an 8,000 foot runway.
