    Something to do with contract disagreements with the aliens and the inability to find intelligent life on Earth.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    Not really. Malayasia may know a bit more, but it seems they were slow to respond. I think bottom line is the pilot wanted to crash the plane and did. Why, we may never know. I think this was the act of one deranged individual, not some sort of great conspiracy. He killed or incapitated the co pilot, took the plane to altitude, depressurized, knocking out all onboard, then disabled the transponders and flew off into nowhere. My chain of events may be out of order but that is what I believed happened.

    What's this new info? I haven't seen anything.

    Malaysia scrambled aircraft when they knew the plane was missing but did not tell until three days later. Also, they knew it went down low to avoid radar detection.

    Malaysian air force search aircraft were scrambled about 8 a.m. March 8 to the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca, soon after Malaysia Airlines reported that its plane was missing, Malaysian sources told CNN. The aircraft took off before authorities corroborated data indicating that the plane turned back westward, a senior Malaysian government official told CNN.

    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared from military radar for about 120 nautical miles after it crossed back over the Malaysian Peninsula, sources say. Based on available data, this means the plane must have dipped in altitude to between 4,000 and 5,000 feet, a senior Malaysian government official and a source involved in the investigation tell CNN.

    I am beginning to wonder how long until some bodies wash up somewhere, or parts from the plane. I do not know at this point that the plane will be found and if it is found, if we can learn anything.

    They won't find anything because the Antarctica Nazis remote-controlled it to their base in Antarctica so they can use it for an invasion of New Zealand.

    So are the Antarctica Nazis a branch of the Dark Side of the Moon Nazis, or are they two totally different groups?

    Well, the Moon Nazis are related because they came from the Antarctica Nazis. These are both completely different from the Illinois Nazis.
