The missing 777 Malaysian plane

When when it ever be found? Or not.

Here's a bit of news from today (Mar 20)

"two large objects bobbing in a remote part of the Indian Ocean were part of a possible debris field of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight.
One of the objects spotted by satellite imagery had a dimension of 25 meters (82 feet) and the other one was smaller."


Could those be parts of the wings, which might float? And if they can, for how long?

But this statement struck me as funny:

"while cautioning that the objects could also be seaborne debris along a key shipping route where containers periodically fall off cargo vessels."

Good thread there cave.

There are several theories floating around out there depending on whom you listen to.

I look forward to other theories from members here. Maybe that will redeem our collective brain power even if we can't figure out what that pesky tool is for that Step asked about?

Can you identify this tool??

How about this? That tool unlocks the transponder on the Triple 7?

Okay I will bite.

Terrorists hijacked the plane. They took control of the plane, decompressed the cabin and killed all the passengers, while they were relatively safe in the pilot bay.
Or they took the plane to 45,000' and allowed all to go to sleep (except them) forever.

They then took the plane to a terrorist country, hid it in a airplane hanger and at this very moment are retrofitting it with many pounds of explosives for a big show.

I am surprised someone hasn't blamed the President yet.

Oh, they'll get around to that, I'm sure! After all, what's the fun of having a President if you can't blame him or her for all the woes in your life!

Oh, and your idea sounds almost as good as others floating around! Or better. Or the right one.

I actually heard this from the internet. So who knows. A mystery for sure.
Do you have a theory?

Not yet---- I'm trying to keep an open mind and it's hard to if I have a theory! But I love dissecting and discussing theories.

Adds a whole new dimension to the saying "It fell off the back of a lorry"

The plane crashed and the crew and passengers escaped and found themselves in a lost Tibetan valley, cut off from the world and from time. (With apologies to James Hilton.)

Or perhaps 777 was abducted by Martian spheres. (Ok, I'm listening to a re-run of a 1950s BBC radio serial called "Journey Into Space")

They went through a wormhole. I saw that one.
