published a cargo list to confirm if any hazmat on board? Undeclared or insufficiently packed DG
cargo or in luggage is more likely than terrorism IMO. Not that the cargo needs to be DG
to cause a problem dislodging (National 744 Afghanistan).

lack of communication opportunity/attempt in a hijacking could be explained by crew involvement, sort of like Debt of Honor by Tom Clancy (without that crashing into the Capitol).
Or recent real life events like ET
ending up in GVA
or LAM over Botswana.

Am I only one that thinks that they'll eventually find out the reason for the crash is something not crazy and it's just taking them a while to find it?
I'm not hating on those speculating but some of the ideas being thrown around are absolutely ridiculous. I know a structural failure leading to a crash and them taking unusually long to find it is more 'boring' but still seems a lot more plausible than the crazy crap being discussed.
Just my 2¢... the ocean is a big place, even in a crowded area. It's 2014 but there are still gaps in our technology and maybe this supposed crash will lead to some changes in that area
Agree - so many more likely outcomes. Whatever happened, how ever large or small the pieces, they simply have not been found yet. From the last posts, it seems they could have been looking in the wrong place for whatever reason.
Just wondering about an insecure cargo door - would it be possible for one to blow out and cause a rapid decompression? I believe it has happened before but cant remember any examples.
Does anyone know what SAR equipment Vietnam has? I know they have brand new Viking Twin Otters. Just curious and wondering if they should be asking for help from more ably equipped parties.
