To recap, the plane took off with 227 passengers and 12 crew members from 15 nations, departing Kuala Lumpur for Beijing at 12:41AM (hate these night flights) on 8 March 2014. At 1:19 AM the co-pilot said to air traffic control in Malaysia, "All right, good night." Three minutes later the transponder and automatic dependent surveillance link went off, and at 6:30AM the flight failed to arrive in Beijing. MH370 had vanished.
- Forty minutes into flight, something happened:
- we might never find out if it was terrorism, a malafunction or what, but there was a sudden southwest turn, with dramatic altitude adjustments
- as the pilot could not communicate, he nevertheless headed for the closest airport, which was Langkawi,
- or terrorists ordered the plane to head in that direction
- at some point, the pilots and everyone else on board lost consciousness, and the automatic pilot took over, continuing the flight in this new, now, more southerly direction (called the Zombie or Ghost Plane, which is what happened to golfer Payne Stewart)
- when the fuel ran out 7.5 hours after take-off, the plane crashed into the ocean around 1500 miles southwest of Perth, Australia
- The plane was kidnapped by terrestrials and everyone is still alive at some airport on Planet Earth, probably Pyongyang or somewhere in Crimea, so Putin can be blamed, or maybe even on a beach waiting for Lost 2 to be filmed (less than 1%, way less)
- The primary culprit was the Gulf of Thailand version of the Bermuda Triangle (1 chance in 100,000), which caused the problem and might well be where the plane will ultimately be found
- Meteor (1 in a million)
- Somehow Edward Snowden is involved (1 in a billion)
- The Illuminati did it (1 in a trillion)
- Kidnapped by aliens and someday everyone will be returned (1 in 9 quadrillion)
- Sucked up by a black hole, something for which CNN is still trying to overcome (1 in a Googel)
While this fierce storm is heading straight for that site, reports indicate that Gillian will weaken and turn west before reaching the X-spot where all ships are headed.
