    Water would be the immediate need. You can go a surprisingly long time without food (longer the more body fat you have), unless you have some medical issue.

    Does the as-is include everything on board? Someone could make a killing selling all those passports and luggage. And (presumably) dead bodies, if they have ties to the black market. Or know anyone with a raging addiction to bath salts.

    Apologies in advance. I sure hope hell doesn't have a cash bar.

    Now digging much deeper into the pilots' backgrounds and the captain is morphing from all round nice guy and family man to political fanatic. I wonder if they knew this all along but are now being forced to reveal it?

    Everything I've read today suggests that officials now believe one or both pilots were behind this. I also think that a lot more is known than is being revealed at this time.

    It occurred to me that the passengers may not have even realized what was going on. I'm not sure how many of them would have been aware enough of the route to detect a change of course. I know that I probably wouldn't notice something like that, especially if the pilots simply diverted the flight but went about business as usual, without letting any of the passengers know what they were doing. And since this happened at night, many of them may have been asleep.

    It was the middle of the night so most pax would have been dozing or asleep or maybe watching a movie. Unless it changed course very sharply they wouldn't have had a clue.

    But wasn't it that the plane was flying so high for a while that all the passengers (most of them already asleep anyway) would have died slowly because there was just not air?

    NBC is saying the pilots were flyimg together by happenstance. They did not request to fly together.

    If the scenario is to be believed, then one guy took out the other and reprogrammed the plane. Or one pilot had a buddy on board who helped him take out the other pilot and pull it off. Or the pilots told each other, "Next time we fly together, bro, we pull this thing off.....". Or, the evil plane took over:

    Dave Bowman: Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?
    HAL: Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
    Dave Bowman: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
    HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
    Dave Bowman: What's the problem?
    HAL: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
    Dave Bowman: What are you talking about, HAL?
    HAL: This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
    Dave Bowman: I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.
    HAL: I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
    Dave Bowman: [feigning ignorance] Where the hell did you get that idea, HAL?
    HAL: Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
    Dave Bowman: Alright, HAL. I'll go in through the emergency airlock.
    HAL: Without your space helmet, Dave? You're going to find that rather difficult.
    Dave Bowman: HAL, I won't argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
    HAL: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

    Or, blaming the pilots is a great way to save face because they aren't here to defend themselves.

    Did Aliens Abduct Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370? - National Report | National Report

    Did Aliens Abduct Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370?



    Since 1947 our Government has been lying to us about aliens. Everyone sees them, UFOs are everywhere, in every nation. They are a threat to our sovereignty as a nation and as a world.

    Now a whole entire airplane has vanished into thin air. Yesterday A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 239 souls lost contact with air traffic control and disappeared. Known as Flight MH370, it is a B777-200 aircraft heading to Beijing, China from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Associated Press reports that the flight lost contact somewhere over Vietnam.

    There were no reports of bad weather and no sign of why the plane would vanished from radar screens almost an hour after it took off. There are reports of two oil slicks off the coast but absolutely no wreckage has yet to be found. Where did the plane go?

    Malaysia UFOThere is only one possible answer. Aliens.

    Aliens have been abducting ships and planes in the Burmuda Triangle for as long as civilized people have been sailing those seas. Could the aliens have decided to abduct yet another plane form a different place?

    “We are not ruling out any possibilities,” Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya told a news conference full of journalists.

    Now it is being reported that at least two of the people on the plane had stolen passports. The passenger manifest issued by the airline included the names of two Europeans, Austrian Christian Kozel and Italian Luigi Maraldi, both of which were not on the plane, according to their foreign ministries. Both men reported their passports stolen in Thailand in 2013. There were no indications of sabotage nor claims of a terrorist attack, but Thailand is known as a hotbed of alien activity.

    So once again, the only possible cause is Aliens.

    So will this finally drive our Government to admit that there really is an alien race here on our soil and in our air? Will Obama finally stop asking the Russians to fly us to space and reinvest in NASA so that we can fight this Alien scourge? Calls to the White House were not returned.

    This is exactly what I've been thinking! Instead of all this speculations, I wish it all would just end one way or another so the loved ones could get some closure but here's hoping for good new. I shall hope. My heart goes out to the loved ones.
