Highway could have parts that are prepared as landing strips for the military. But no place with a highway in China is so remote that a 777 would not be noticed.
As I stated in post 6 I think, there are some very interesting things out in the remote parts of China that easily could handle something this size with no one noticing for a long while.

Just out of curiosity, are you sleeping at all? What timezone are you in? You see to be everywhere in these posts, which I am glad because it makes it easy for me to catch up.

Was there enough fuel on board to have flown to Diego Garcia?
That is still an answer no one has provided, and it shocks me that they haven't. This would answer SO much, or at least point in the right direction. It's a completely different game if say the pilot loaded 50% more fuel.

That's insane! This plane could be practically anywhere, and there's a half-decent chance it's actually intact.
It certainly has only increased my belief instead of decreased that it is intact. I really wish we knew the actual fuel load.

OK, I added a 3000 mile buffer and a 3500 mile buffer for 6 and 7 hours flight time at 500 mph...
Sir, your maps are outstanding. I reserve Respected User list for those who provide significant airplane knowledge over a long period of time. But as someone who works a lot with Google Maps API, if there were a Map Making Respected User List, you would be on it. Thank you for what you have done. It actually help simplify the theories big time.
