so 1st they said the pilot made a call 1 minute before the flight, now they say the co-pilot tried to make a call when they turned ...? previously they stated there were no signs of cell phone calls? so what will come out later about all those other cell phones (passengers) on that plane? I heard this morning that at 30% of cell phones never get turned off on planes ...

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 Passengers Likely Suffocated, Australia Says

They still haven't found it, but they think they know how the passengers died. And the crew too.

I think all the Foo kayakers should look for the plane whenever they kayak, esp if they happen to kayak along the 7th arc in the Southern Ocean.

Unless they find the aircraft, that's a nice theory to go with.

The occupants of the plane were taken into the future to help repopulate the Earth, and the plane flew (and crashed) all by itself.

I think speculating about speculation is some sort of double negative, crossing the streams sort of thing instigated by the aliens who actually took the jet to some passing asteroid.
