FRIDAY UPDATE: SABOTAGE?
YES, THOUGH U S INTELLIGENCE SAYS IT THINKS JET CRASHED IN INDIAN OCEAN
IT'S LOOKING MORE LIKE A SILENT DELIBERATE ACT OF HIJACKING AND COMMANDEERING---IF EVEN BY ITS OWN ROGUE PILOTS--- INSTEAD OF JUST A CRASH. PERHAPS IT'S BOTH.
It makes for a most intriguing and frightening flight of fancy.
Could the well-seasoned pilots have stayed on course during the first hours of the flight, said goodnight to air traffic controllers, then turned off its data signal and transponder devices---except for intermittent pings---before taking nosedive to a much lower altitude, flying under all radars that could pick it up, and drastically changing course and heading to an unknown destination, even a suicide crash into the deeper Indian ocean? Did pilots have enough fuel and prior flight plan knowledge to get it to another location where it landed? It's wild, but starting to look unimpossible.
What an amazing story. Whoever planned and executed this brilliant heist must have taken years to carry it out, if it's true. They precisely calculated the time of day for takeoff and flight for needing to land before or at dawn. And they must have strategically chosen Malaysia because of its unsophisticated government officials and investigative facilities.
I'm sure family members of the lost passengers on board the plane are praying that their loved ones are alive----even if it's in Pakistan or India. All these people need our prayers. They must be stressed beyond the limit.
Meanwhile, back on the ground in Houston....
