Is it possible to hijack a plane, deactivate the tracking and save it for later terror use?
Current news reports from the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 now note that two passengers listed on the flight had stolen passports (original owners are safe elsewhere with one passport stolen a year earlier) which makes you wonder why you use two people under stolen passports to get a plane?
And the plane disappears from radar at 35,000 feet, a safe cruising height - an arc trajectory, and its fuel supply would allow it, undetected, to reach many locations, if the plane was no invisible to tracking.
There was no call for help from the experienced pilot and the aircraft, a 777, has a great safety record (aside from pilot error in the crashed landing at SFO.) Busy flight corridor, clear skies, should have ben an ordinary flight and yet no black box pings. No radar, no voice communications. Nothing at all! Except two stolen passports!
If it exploded at 35,000 feet debris would be over a huge area - not oil slicks, someone would have found something floating with all the ships out there.
If it nose dived to the sea, caused by a terrorist, then possibly that could be true, but why wouldn’t a terrorist wait until the aircraft was over land a mere 150 miles ahead, and terrorize more people by crashing it into a city?
But what if they planned to steal the plane for use elsewhere at a later date?
Large commercial jet with long range flight capability!
Land it at a set location, refuel it and /or hide it! Arc the trajectory and you cover anywhere from Pakistan through the Middle East.
If no debris is found, perhaps this theory should be examined, if it has not been already!
