Hijacked? You don't say! I think that was clear from the start.
to get away with this I think a higher organization is involved.

Quote from: Malaysian Prime Minister
From this point onwards, the Royal Malaysian Air Force primary radar showed that an aircraft which was believed—but not confirmed—to be MH370 did indeed turn back. It then flew in a westerly direction back over peninsular Malaysia before turning northwest. Up until the point at which it left military primary radar coverage, these movements are consistent with deliberate action by someone on the plane.
Quote from: Slate
A chart released by the Malaysia government showed the aircraft’s range of possible positions based on the distance traveled by an electromagnetic ping detected by a satellite over the Indian Ocean at 8:11 a.m., at which point, apparently, the plane was still airborne but nearly out of fuel. It consists of two arcs (shown here in red), the northernmost of which goes from the northern border of Vietnam through western China to the eastern portion of Kyrgyzstan and includes the Chinese province of Xinjiang, heartland of the Uyghur ethnic minority.

A violent Uyghur separatist movement is active in that area. Two weeks ago, eight knife-wielding Uyghur separatists attacked passengers at a train station in Xinjiang, killing 29 people. According to its manifest, 153 of the 227 passengers aboard MH370 are Chinese.

Sounds like the Chinese have more reason to worry than we do. 

I literally just read a spy thriller where almost this exact sequence of events took place, in the same part of the world, and the same suspects.  Crazy deja vu right now.

Its crazy stuff.  How do you hijack a plane that size and land it and hangar it, all with no one noticing.

Even if it crashed into the ocean, there would be SOME debris. There are quite a few items on a jetliner that are buoyant.

And 600,000 pounds of aluminum doesn't just disappear.

It will be intertesting to see how it turns out, if they can ever figure it out, that is.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

All signs point to a expert at the helm, so most likely one of the pilots.  English tabloids are reporting that the senior pilot was a political activist of sorts, having attended a trial of a jailed opposition candidate he supported just before the flight.

here's the counter view though:

Awhile back, the US had a observation drone flying over Iran.  And the Iranian's took full control of it electronically.  And landed it safely and intact at one their airports.

Something along those lines is one possible theory out there.

Yeah but you figure it went into the drink in the south Indian Ocean and no one was looking there for 6 days so a lot of what floats will have sunk by then and the rest will be scattered widely so you wont get a nice big debris field to spot from a distance.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Landed somewhere remote, then customized somewhere to match a different plane, including resetting the transponder. When the plane it matches is over a remote area, it's brought down. The refigured plane takes its place, and can fly a nuclear weapon directly into in city in the world.
