    This is when I long to hear from conspiracy theorists, UFOlogists, nutcases, and other "experts" to shed light (or otherwise) on the possible whereabouts of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.

    I have closely followed the news development on cnn and on PH tv channels.

    one thing that I tend to agree with is the interview of a cnn personnel with a retired u.s. commercial airline pilot who said that based on real evidence gathered, it is likely that one of the pilots may have commandeered the plane or some passengers may have gained access to the cockpit and took control of the plane.

    one thing that clouds my mind is if it's a hijacking, where is the plane now and what are the demands of the hijackers?

    if this is a pilot error, why the loss of communications between the plane and air traffic controllers or to whoever has access to long distance communications?

    if this is an air accident, where are the debris?

    if this is an alien abduction, nah... I wouldn't want to go there.
  3. I think it was a hijacking, the hijackers cut off the communications then somehow the plane crashed because there were some resistance in the cockpit..

    or maybe, the government itself do not reveal all the information to the public..

    Too many possibilities, only thing you can do is be open minded....just like everything else in this world that has yet to be explained/figured out.

    What could be more nutcase than CNN as it is now? CNN used to be a true news network, it is now only after "ratings," and its motto should now be "The most untrusted name in news."

    Interesting idea, though, getting the eyes of the crowd to search through these photos.
