Investigators examining the March 8 disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane with 239 people aboard believe it most likely that the plane flew into the southern Indian Ocean, a source close to the investigation said on Wednesday.

Bet they’ll find it in the next 24 hours
This is exactly what happened. No conspiracy. Pilot made a rash decision for revenge, then got cold feet and died of hypoxia. Plane flew on until it ran out of fuel.
Somalia might be a likely destination if they want to steal the airplane.
“Just so we’re clear: the plane flew into the Indian ocean or over the Indian ocean?”...
What’s a misplaced or misquoted word here and there.....Man, this is “journalism, ya gotta be open minded about these things.
That probably depends on how much fuel it had. It might have flown over the Indian Ocean and into the Antarctic Ocean.
It had enough fuel to reach Beijing. They don't load more than needed to reach an alternate airfield that doesn't have the same weather conditions as the primary destination in case they have a weather diversion. So just enough to reach Beijing and a little bit more. Not much more though.
From somewhere a long time ago, I had it in my mind that they carried an additional hour's worth of fuel.
Consider the source.
Refuel in Maldives and then on to a temp. (portable) airstrip in Somalia?
That plane didn’t crash into water, or it would of been found by now.
I’m not sure what you’re saying otherwise, it didn’t make a lot of sense.
How do we know it wasn’t fully loaded with fuel?
I keep coming back to the supposed comment of the co-pilot’s father to a family friend, about his suddenly devout, mosque-going son.
“My son is lost now....”
If this plane landed in 12 000 feet of water, why do you say “it would have been found by now”?
“If this plane landed in 12 000 feet of water, why do you say it would have been found by now?
Not the OP, but I’ll take a guess. With the planes ELT system, it sends out pings when it hits ground or water. I’m guessing multiple Nations have subs in the Indian Ocean that would have heard the pings by now. UNLESS there is a conspiracy for the plane not to be found.
After the army, I was airforce for 3 years, fixing helos, F-18s, and the such.
One thing I learned in the school portion was the devices these aircraft have to assist in finding them.
Upon impact, there would of been signals sent out, and it wouldn’t be too hard to hone in on them after a little bit of time. You can’t shut that off either.
This plane landed somewhere, and if you asked me where I thought it was, I’d say Iran. Iran reported recently that someone was messing with reactor sites as well, to me that says the coverup is already beginning.
Too many things about this story stink to the high heavens.
General McInerney on FOX said yesterday he believes the plane flew north into one of those “stan” countries. Who to believe a Malasian source or a retired US General.
Oh the Irony!
> That probably depends on how much fuel it had.
The fuel status of the plane would be easy enough to check. The last airport that fueled it would have records.
I speculate flight MH370 went non-stop to Pakistan. Pakistan has between 100 and 120 nuclear weapons and one of them could easily fit inside a Being 777.
