    They're saying possibly 5 hours now....as far a Iran.

    Looking like someone wants this plane for nefarious purposes.

    A new story now says that there was a seismic event detected that may have been the plane crash.

    Not sure if that makes sense tho. 80 miles away from last contact and 90 minutes after last contact.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    The plane is in pieces at the bottom of an ocean. They haven't found it because it's a big ass ocean and they don't know where it was when it went down.
    To me, that's the big point--no group has made any demands or claims or offered pictures. It seems unlikely that it was hijacked. Also that the crew did not get out one word regarding any sort of emergency.

    It is possible that one or both crew members were in on it, as happened in Switzerland last month, but if it had been a successful hijack it seems we would have heard something from the bad guys by now.

    Yeah, it's not like it could fly for a week.

    What a great mystery! All we know for sure is that a huge plane with over 200 people on board disappeared. We don't know where it is or why it disappeared. We actually don't know anything, other than that it is gone.

    Therefore, any speculation is as good as any other speculation.

    I think it flew into the fifth dimension to a parallel universe where the Earth is un populated by human beings. The plane landed safely, but will never take off again. The stranded passengers will now start a new civilization.

    Unless the attempted hijacking was thwarted by heroic passengers, like the ones on Flight 93. And maybe there was no cell phone service for passengers to call-in the emergency from the cabin.

    Next time we see it, it'll have Jensen tri axles and a lift kit.

    My gut is that this was an unsuccessful hijacking. But everything is conjecture.
