    I'm not going to entertain fantastic tales of a jet the size of a 777 dreamliner as being landed at the county airpark, and rolled into a secret hanger, but there is this:

    "The two men travelling on stolen passports on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that mysteriously disappeared on Saturday have been identified as Iranian nationals."

    They believe one of them was trying to Migrate to Germany with his mother (who is already there).

    It's easier than getting an Iranian passport.
    Don't work out, work in.

    I just heard a report that one of the two Iranians was seeking asylum in Germany, and the other was traveling with him.

    Im not sure what the stats are but hasnt every type of plane thats flown has had at least one catastrophic failure at one time? The Boeing 777 hasnt had one yet so the law of average seems to have taken effect here.

    An explosion would have left a debris trail. This plane went down mostly intact. Its at the bottom of the ocean.
