Quoting Starlionblue (Reply 185):
A failure of the main instrumentation would not affect the backups.
So in this case there would still be some method of communicating to head office they had tech problems and were returning to KUL
, right? Im pretty sure that would have happened.
Quoting laxboeingman (Reply 193):
That is my problem with a fire theory as well. I would think that we would have seen burned debris by now
And not continued flying for 7 hours.
Quoting Tapir (Reply 196):
Is it normal to carry that many fruits in a passenger jet?
Yes. One of the top air cargoes - perishables (fruit / veg / meat / flowers).
Quoting KIAS (Reply 205):
some Tintin plot
You bring up another scenario, maybe it hit a thundering typhoon or the plane was invaded by great snakes
Quoting Tapir (Reply 219):
One more theory - exploding mangosteen?
And again continued to fly for 7 hours yet totally unable to communicate? Anyway, I think its been clarified you are thinking of durians.
Quoting capri (Reply 222):
instead of pilot suicide, how about pax(s) suicide, i.e deportees to China?
And they would be qualified to fly a 777 and go right into the FMS and turn of ACARS transmissions and everything else we suppose happened?
Quoting capri (Reply 222):
no one and no talks about a Russian and 2 Ukrainians onboard, no reports on them or families or if passports stolen or anything else, especially with Crimea coincidence
For what? How is crashing or stealing a 777 going to help the Crimeans gain independence or otherwise? Dozens of retired IL
not to mention military aircraft laying around the former CIS states for someone to use if they wanted a makeshift bomber if that is your thought. Seems pretty easy to walk into an airport and do what you want with no shots being fired......
Quoting Tapir (Reply 226):
Anyway, new theory from dailymail pointing to hidden explosive device in the mangosteen
We always get shown theses pictures in our air cargo security training of explosives hidden in every day products. Never ever heard of it happening though (drugs quite likely) - and again, how come it then flew for 7 hours unable to communicate.
Quoting Tapir (Reply 245):
Could MH370 have flown on autopilot after pilots passed out?
Yes. But the question is how did that happen. Seems too strange a coincidence after the flight plan was knowingly changed and comms disabled.
The most plausible theory I have seen and I think it is worth repeating is a pilot suicide, whereby one or the other took out his companion (or he left the cockpit - a replacement F/A probably would not know what he was doing until it was too late), programmed the way points, took the plane up high, depressurized the cabin killing everyone, set the plane back on AP
on the south arc route towards the IO then, took of his own mask thereby committing suicide and let the plane fly on until the fuel exhausted, when it then crashed into the ocean, probably off the coast of Western Australia where he knew it would be super hard to ever find them and nature takes it course to disperse the wreckage.
