A Cat’s Theory on Flight MH370

By Cole

After sitting many hours this week with paws pensively curled, reading and watching news unfold on this “greatest mystery in modern aviation history,” I’ve got some ideas.

Ground sources lost contact with the plane less than an hour after takeoff, yet the plane continued transmitting pings for 4 hours. And military radar may have spotted it 45 minutes after last official contact.

They think it deliberately turned west and continued on a route plotted between established waypoints, which would indicate carefully premeditated effort to further avoid detection.

It seems that mechanical failure should be the most far-fetched scenario now. Maps showing how far the plane could have traveled in 4 hours include a LOT of land.

No wreckage or bodies have surfaced in a week, either near the oil slicks nor anywhere else.

If it was a third-party hijacking or sabotage, why crash the plane where nobody could ever find it, ascertain what happened, or who did it? The act would become totally pointless.

I think all signs indicate the plane landed somewhere, intact, and a group of terrorists are holding 239 hostages, getting more giddy with every hour of the futile search they watch on CNN.

We don’t know how many hundreds of millions of dollars the countries searching will have to squander before the perps think it’s enough to reveal themselves.

Perhaps the world will unwittingly tip the bad guys’ hand by losing interest and giving up. When CNN starts saying “MH370” and “Amelia Earhart” in the same sentence, the terrorists had better speak up before nobody gives a damn.

We just saw Putin flip the world the bird by invading Crimea. I suspect this missing plane could be Al Qaeda’s way of announcing, “We’re back in the game, baby!”

It would have been Step One on board to confiscate all electronic devices so the passengers would have no way of contacting help. If they’re now on an island or in some other remote location, such devices probably wouldn’t work anyway.

I’m hoping I’m right because it means that those innocent people still have a chance of surviving this. Rescuers just need to quit playing in the water and go find them.

    This certainly makes more sense than all the other junk theories I’ve been hearing!

    Welcome, Irene! Thank you for agreeing with me. Now that they seem to know the plane was in the air for about 5 hours total, the explanation of some breakdown seems unlikely.

    It makes much more sense that somebody wanted the plane itself (which is why it hasn’t been found) for some reason. And who else but a terrorist would want a plane that big (except maybe John Travolta)?

    In my mind, the BIGGEST question now is what has become of all the people on board? Are they still alive?

  3. Irene says:

    Not to complicate matters but if ALL these explanations are not correct, shall we think of other never experienced solutions?

    Cole, AOL is now offering a piracy theory; I just saw the headline, but haven’t read it yet — I also read that CNN is being taken to task for its coverage of the whole thing.

    Cole, you make a lot of sense. Of course, as a cat, that goes without saying. Baxter sends his regards.

    Cats could find that plane.Hunched in one spot,not moving a whisker for what seems like hours,staring staring staring……and….POUNCE!

  7. catsworking says:

    ZM, cats COULD find that plane all right. Cats could find that plane AT NIGHT!

    Back at Baxter, Mauigirl! Gee, I had no idea all these comments on my post had come. We are NOT getting notifications from WordPress. Bad WordPress, bad, bad!! ::Hitting WordPress with rolled-up newspaper:: Such behavior could only come from dogs.
