Flight MH370: Theories
In case you haven't heard, a Boeing 777, touted as the world's safest commercial jet has disappeared somewhere far away from where I'm sitting. Like over Vietnam or something. Here are my leading theories of what happened/is happening/maybe is still yet to come.
If you dare.
1. The plane never existed
Why can't this be true? Stupider things have been brought to the table (not that that is a great arguing piece I suppose), and maybe there is some sort of hidden agenda from some government that needed a search party in the South China Sea to find something. Or maybe the attention of the media is being diverted from something else? Who knows. Not me. I'm not an unscrupulous world leader (yet?).
But consider, governments (and the assumably horribly corrupt officials that are at the helm) always have an agenda to push. Would creating a fake flight be out of reach of a massive political machine like the U.S. or China? I have not the slightest idea what a fake plane crash is the answer to, but who knows. Crazier things have happened.
2. The plane was hijacked and flown somewhere else
Radar is a funny thing. Or so I say. In reality I have no idea how it works, but what I do know is that there is a thing called "ground clutter" (or something) and there is a figure of speech "flying under the radar" (I know that for sure). Would it have been possible to hijack a plane, disable communications, and then put it into a dive to then fly it 200ft above the surface of the ocean thus making it impossible to track with radar? Especially if you weren't looking for it? At that point, the hijackers could have flown it to anywhere they wanted to without anyone knowing.
Why would hijackers do this? Why wouldn't hijackers do it? Becoming an international criminal hunted by every authority on earth is a small price to pay for the story they can tell at parties about that one time the stole a plane MID-FLIGHT!
3. The plane was shot down
In the realm of still exciting but slightly more plausible while at the same time being far-fetched, the Malaysian Airlines flight may have been shot down by a military. Maybe North Korea wanted to test their missiles on a moving target. Or maybe it was simply mistaken for an intrusive attack from a neighboring hostile by some trigger-happy far flung eastern nation. Regardless of who the culprit is, the lack of as actual plane wreckage may be the result of surface to air missile battery or even an F-16 piloted by a someone that took orders regardless of the situation.
Even if he knew it was a civilian airliner, worse things have happened. Like those guys dropping nukes in Japan or something. So exploding the crap out of a jumbo-jet is barely a blip on the radar (haha radar joke) compared to history.
4. It's in the bottom of a trench because the pilot went cray cray
This theory is pretty high on the list of many of the newsies lately. I'm pretty sure I actually heard the words "cray cray" being used. The reason being, that if there was a crash, an emergency transmitter should be blaring away panic signals all over the place. But, if the plane, for whatever reason (like a crazy pilot), took a sudden nose dive straight into the freaking ocean and made it all the way to the bottom of the deep end, radio waves may have a hard time getting thru all that water. If that's the case, there's a good chance it may never be found.
5. Some kind of sci-fi portal opened up and the plane will land at it's destination in 2037
I think I like this one the best. Everybody fell asleep on the plane and has no idea what happened, except for it's the future now. It would explain the lack of any evidence of the plane still being here, because it's no longer in 2014!
These are my ideas. What about you? I like to think that plane is intact and everyone is okay and it's a giant mystery.
