    Or that the phone was stolen prior to the flight... there are many explanations and it's just one phone so I guess not...

      "Previously on LOST..."

      Joking aside, it's an extremely sad situation. What I don't understand is how a plane can just vanish - ocean or no ocean. The world is too sophisticated now for something like this to happen, surely .

      I don't believe there's any terrorism involved. There's too much uncertainty, no gain and no one has come forward. I've wondered if the plane was taken for some reason and landed somewhere, but even then, how do you hide a plane?

        Has something like this ever happened before? It's been gone for more than three days now. So, so sad. :(

          its just matter of time they find the plane , it must be basically pulverized.

            The Malaysian military believes the missing plane flew for more than an hour after vanishing from air traffic control screens, changing course and travelling west over the Strait of Malacca. If this be true they have been looking in the wrong place.

              So what could be the reason causing a plane to disappear from the radars while still on air for a full hour? And wouldn't an unidentified plane flying close to the Malacca straits (which are terribly important for worldwide trade) cause all kinds of alarm to Indonesian, Malaysian, Singapore and American authorities alike?

                Not sure Jio but If the reports from the military are verified, it would mean the plane was able to maintain a cruising altitude and flew for about 500 km (350 miles) with its transponder and other tracking systems apparently switched off. :-?

                  I was thinking that the transponders are located in the black box and cannot be turned off no matter what. At least that's what they were saying when the Cypriot plane crashed in Athens a few years back. Anybody knows if this is the case for all planes or is it possible for the pilot or another person to actually turn the tracking systems off?

                      It certainly is a mystery, I hope they find the black boxes. I read somewhere that the battery on the tracking signal for the black boxes lasts for 30 days if there still intact.

                        The conspiracy theories are not bad in this case. The plane went missing in the perfect time for Russia ( Crimea invasion).

                          I don't get the connection... anyway if they don't find it by tomorrow it will become the longest-missing plane in history. So far the record still goes to that French plane which fell in the Atlantic and was found after 5 days

                              RIP to the lost people.

                              This is all too strange and creepy, there has never been a plane disappearing in the blink of an eye like this if I'm not mistaken. Very sad news.

                                  Reading about weird plane stories, there was a Korean plane (I just read it) which was shot down by the Soviet Union when it accidentally entered Soviet territory during a commercial flight. They found the wreckage and all in the sea but the weird part is... they never recovered all the bodies although they did recover clothes and shoes... even shoes that the people in the flight were reportedly wearing while on the flight. The Soviet Union returned over 100 pairs of shoes but only body parts from about 15 people... Which is absolutely strange...

                                      There's certainly something very unnerving about this. Something isn't sitting right about the whole thing.. Fake passports, phone ringing through, nobody coming forward. :-?

                                        Fake passports and phone ringing through (as well as that some passengers checked in but didn't travel) are not as big deals as they sound, it happens in all flights. Just nobody pays attention until some accident happens. The phone could very well be lost or stolen, the fake passports are much more common across the world than we may think and anybody who has worked in the field of immigration knows that and the passengers who didn't travel once again it is very common, in fact most airlines overbook their flights just to cover that and in the rare case that all passengers appear for the flight they actually pay you to travel with another flight. None of those have any real significance by themselves. What is really mysterious to me about this is how they can claim that the plane turned back and flew for over an hour without any civilian radar picking it up and without the pilots sending some sort of distress signal. That's what really doesn't make sense.

                                          Here is another theory on what might have gone wrong.

                                          The US airline safety regulator warned last year of cracking in the fuselage skin underneath a Boeing 777’s satellite antenna, issuing a worldwide alert for the flaw to be fixed as it could lead to decompression that would leave occupants unconscious.
                                          The problem identified by the US Federal Aviation Administration provides a possible explanation as to why a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 plane mysteriously went missing en route to Beijing on Saturday.


                                          B777 antenna locations: the cracks were reported under the stacom antenna on top of the aircraft.





                                          A structural failure related to the flaw could not only have led to a slow decompression that left the 239 passengers and crew on the missing flight unconscious, it would also have disabled satellite communications, including the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), which transmits data of the plane’s location automatically.

                                          It would also have rendered the plane invisible to all but 'primary radar', which has a range of only 100 nautical miles.

                                              That would explain everything besides... how and why the plane turned back... because surely a structural failure wouldn't turn the plane back by itself... Also it wouldn't explain why the Malaysian military waited a full 2 days before revealing that it had tracked the plane down the Malacca straits despite its own government looking for it in the completely wrong place and why the presence of a plane by their own national airline so far off its route didn't ring any alarms
