I have no real experience with full scale commercial airplanes except talking the flight attendants into another rum and coke.

Pakistan getting ready to load the nukes.

Right, because they could not think of any other way or any easier means to get ahold of an airliner. None of the several hundred already local would not do??

Calm down, It was supposed to be a joke. I guess the humor did not fallow through that it was a far stretch of possibilities. I know as a liberal you don't want to believe terrorism is real anymore.

How about giving the liberal thing a rest?? I lost 2 close friends on 9-11, so you bet your ass I have first hand knowledge that terrorism exists. Honestly, I will admit that I just don't get where there is much room for joking about this tragedy. 239 people are more than likely laying dead at the bottom of the Indian Ocean, so I guess the humor of that situation escapes me. Sorry. Must be a liberal thing I guess.

Simple, It's on the botton of the ocean. People just just don't know how teeny tiny a plane is when it comes to the size of the ocean. They will find it sooner or later.

Bill, Come on man. Really?

Some how you manage to turn everything into a debate. I'll end it now for you. Your totally correct and I am totally wrong. Hope your happy with this. Please let it go.

Lots of possibilities exist, none of them with a happy ending. Everyone probably has one theory that they are most comfortable with, based on the facts that best support their position.

I'd like to think that the pilot(s) tried to divert to an alternative landing site based on a cockpit emergency, then became incapacitated, with the plane flying on that course until it ran out of fuel. That would explain many details, but it also brings up several other questions... like why has no floating debris been spotted... anywhere.

The media is leading us to believe that the pilot(s) had less than stellar intentions, and that the airplane COULD have landed and been placed in a hangar pending some future use. I tend to follow this theory also, admitting that it also brings up several unanswered questions.... If the plane did come in for a controlled landing, why didn't cellphones reconnect to local towers? Surely the governments involved have searched the cellphone records of the passengers. How did it possibly evade every tracking capability between where the transponder was shut off and where it eventually landed? Any airport large enough to accept this plane would also have a tower, manned 24/7. If a group of terrorists was in control of the plane, certainly not supported by the government wherever it landed... why would that government not notify someone the minute it landed? To Judge's point, if a government WAS involved, surely they could have taken control of a plane without having to hijack one full of passengers thousands of miles away.

Hopefully the next few days or even minutes will uncover details that lead to the passengers. Their families deserve all the efforts of all the countries involved in the search.

Plane took off. Plane climbed to cruise altitude. Plane failed to arrive at destination. Something bad probably happened to the plane and the 239 souls on board. As far as I can tell that is what we actually know. Everything else seems to be speculation, some of it probably valid, and a lot of it simply nonsense.

Satellite images have spotted something of interest, planes and boats are in route to investigate further... At this point, they've said that it is a situation "of interest".
