Why would terrorists hijack an airliner knowing the World would search all over for it when they could grab a cargo plane and not have to deal with the risks of one of 230+ people outsmarting them? This thing is either in the water somewhere or down in a desert or jungle somewhere.

Unless..... it had been cloaked or some other form of disappearing as was the expertise of those 20 passengers on board that specialized in this very thing

And no... I really don't believe it.
Crazier things have happened.... one of the speculations by some of the CNN experts was that this could have been about theft ( something expensive in the hold), theft or kidnapping of someone or murder of someone on board.

In the end, you're 7 hours away from where you were thought to be, ( and in opposite direction) it needed to be a graveyard ( night time) flight for this to work, but 7 hrs later, it's now daylight, allowing you to drop down to altitude just above sea level and parachute out.

Nuts!!!

Could it be that the pilot or pilots just wanted to commit suicide and go out with a bang? Just as people do extravagant things when they commit suicide. If it is so then he surely is getting the attention he wanted.

How wide is the horizontal stabilizer on a 777? One of those pictures looks like a tail section.

Object reported to be 24 meters wide.

Tail section of a 777-300

That debris was giant boulders of silver in the ocean. Sell now before price bottoms.
