It been almost 10 days since the Malaysian Airlines flight, a Boeing 777, from KL to Beijing went missing just hours after take off and the only thing that is clear is things are unclear. With the number of countries in the search & rescue effort now totalling 26 things are only getting complicated. Typically, with the passage of time, a search of this nature becomes more focused, whereas in this case its the opposite. The corridor of search is now from the Caspian Sea in Central Asia to the Indian Ocean. Only thing which is getting established is that the flight was hijacked since the communications systems of the plane were apparently systematically switched off.
We all so love conspiracy theories. Following is the list of some of the theories doing the rounds;
– Flight hijacked, took a U turn headed towards India in a 9/11 style attack: No less than former US Deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbott pointed to the possibility of it being used as a projectile attacking an Indian city. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/rest-of-world/Was-Flight-370-hijacked-for-9/11-type-attack-in-India/articleshow/32106334.cms
– Flight hijacked and flown to the Afghan – Pak border: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/missing-malaysian-airlines-mh370-plane-3251347
– Flight hijacked with the help of onboard passengers which had among them a group from a semi – conductor company that is engaged in building of advanced and embedded processors capable of stealth technology.
Its really shocking that something as big as an airplane can go undetected on civilian and even military radars as also the almost crowd of satellites orbiting earth.
