Default flight ma 370

Since this is all we are hearing about and everyone has a theory I thought we may as well have a few more.
Then why not mine first.
If a pilot had someone break into the cockpit, what might he do. Is it a stretch to think if he had a minute or two could he reprogram the computer to take the airplane off it's path. Maybe to save people on the ground or attract attention from the ground. If he thought he could regain control he wouldn't crash the plane.

Maybe what makes this news is that faith in technology is being eroded.

I would have thought the autopilot or the computer that flies the plane would have to be checking the location with satellites along the way.

for all of our satellite surveillance technology, we don't know where the plane went?

If the pilot knew he was trying to be overtaken he may well have changed course, but the very first thing he would have done is get on the radio and report the problem and his location and his plan of action to the ground. I haven’t been following every detail of this but I believe none of that was done. They went off the grid and the two possibilities to my way of thinking are as Wuz thinks they crossed over into another dimension of time and are stuck in the past or future really they would only have to shift one second in position relative to us and they would have vanished. I think that might make a good science fiction theory but in reality the other options might be more grim. The longer time passes without confirmation of what happened in today’s high tech world, the more sinister I tend to believe the outcome could be. There is a very good chance if it was sinister the government’s and powers to be do know and are not tipping their hand at this point allowing parties to think they got away with something for now. The other option I hate to think about is that it is on the ground now and hidden and waiting for its next assignment. People don’t take an aircraft that size with hopes to sell it on eBay.
If it is on the ground taken by undesirables. The passengers are most likely still ok. No ransom has been made but they would be used to protect the location from attack. I find it strange our president who finds it necessary to comment on everything hasn’t been saying anything. That’s my clue that we know a lot more than we are saying.

I will have to read up a little more on this story now that you have me thinking about theory. Everyone has a theory about everything and this is mine and just a theory. Theory is about fitting facts you know with things you know and building an incomplete puzzle. You can support many different theories when you have little information and as you get more bits and pieces try fitting them in. if a piece doesn’t fit you discard that theory and find the one they fit in. Theory is not exact science it’s more of an educated guess.

Then there is speculation that would be if the aircraft was taken and is intact what would someone want to use it for?

If someone wanted to crash the plane, there would be no reason to change course. Just blow it up and let the pieces fall where they may.
