Here's a few theories about the loss of contact with air traffic controllers:

1. It lost contact with the air traffic controllers because the equipment at the air controllers facility was old and faulty.

2. The air traffic controllers were busy posting selfies on Facebook

3. The controllers were drunk or stoned.

But the plane is still up there looking for some sober controllers who can land them safely---- in Roswell NM.

As I posted in another thread here I still believe the plane, crew, and passengers were abducted by aliens.

They have said those things they saw floating could not be anything from the plane. Anything that big from a plane would not be buoyant. The only things that would float would be much smaller like seat cushions.

The best theory I have heard so far is that there was a fire in the cockpit. One procedure in that situation is to shut down everything. They turn everything off just so that is why the transponder was turned off. The 90 degree turn was due to the pilots turning towards the closest airstrip they could use for an emergency landing. The fire quickly grew and the pilots passed out or were overcome by the flames and the plane went into the ocean.

This is just one possible theory. I am sure I did not get all the details of it spot on. This theory came from another pilot so I am sure I missed some of the other details, but this very simple theory seemed to make a lot of sense to me. A lot more so than a black hole at least.

My personal view is that the plane is at the bottom of the ocean. I do not think it is terrorists or any other elaborate theory.

I'm afraid the passengers and crew from Malaysia flight MH370 are with the passengers and crew of Northwest flight 2501.

A seemingly plausible explanation on Wired by a pilot.
It's fairly long and I couldn't decide what portion(s) to excerpt.

One person I heard commenting on that said it could be plane parts and other debris tangled together with cabling, etc. The satellite image didn't have a high enough resolution to be able to tell what it was.

That one made sense to me, too, but other pilots are skeptical. This page includes a link to the original theory: http://www.businessinsider.com/did-m...ly-fire-2014-3

Edit: The original theory is the same thing cave just posted.

What they could tell from the imagery though was the size and the prevailing thought (from what I have read) is that something that big would not be able to be kept afloat like that just from being tangles in some debris. it is simply too much mass.
