Surely there must be laws against driving a 777 and doing your make up

Since when have laws stopped people from doing stupid, irresponsible things?

Doesn't he need the rearview mirror for when he wants to put the machine into reverse?

But seriously, this story just gets more mysterious every day. So far it's mostly rumours and speculations, though. Who knows if they will ever find it?

According to Michael Cassado, flight instructor for Mississauga-based Ufly training school, and Michael Savidge, also of same, both appearing on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, they believe that the reason the search & rescue operation has found nothing thus far is because of radar beacon equipment not being as up to date as most other countries in the West.

The Malaysian government obviously did not spend the extra $ to upgrade all equipment -- airport, airline, etc. -- so that the communications systems and subsequent systems would have been better suited at detection and communication for & in all areas of need.

He used the example of an Iphone.  One may have a 16gb but needs a 64gb and therefore more money needs to be spent, to upgrade, let's say.  If one knows what one needs beforehand, then one should be prepared to spend the necessary cash.

A very clean, logical, conspiracy free theory about what may have happened.

it sounds very comprehensible and, as you said, conspiracy free. But a lot of the other theories sound logical, too, while you read them. Only when they really find the wreckage (or whatever it is) will we know for sure. Up until then we are left speculating or rather judging the speculations of others.

^ well, looks like, maybe, somebody else found it. Or something possibly related. A lot of question marks remain. Just imagine the size of the search area... (and the amount of debris and garbage floating around there).

Three weeks in now and not a trace.  This whole story is just not adding up for me.

Adds up to me if it crashed in the ocean - it's such a massive, massive search area, and they weren't able to immediately search in even the right part of the world because it wasn't originally known how far off course it was.  Add to that the amount of debris already in that area of the Indian Ocean and it becomes difficult to find anything conclusive.

I should have expanded -- it's not necessarily just the inability to locate the plane.  It's quite conceivable it could never be found if it crashed in the vast area where it's assumed to have. 

It's more the Malaysian government.  Some of their pronouncements have been wishy-washy and makes one wonder what the heck is really going on with the investigation.

(Beyond that, I'm still baffled as to how the plane ended up where it supposedly did)

These articles are old but they explain something about a different scenario on just what may have happened to Flight 370.  Suspicion  about the pilot's intentions or perhaps it was more or less a hijacking, (sudden wayward drops in altitude give suspicion to that theory), or, the plane never crashed, it was re-routed (either via hijack or by pilot) elsewhere.
