Sheee-it, the Chinese probably knew where it had gone down within 10 minutes of when it happened.

Well the malaysian govt should know where its gone into, but they are very misleading and secretive about the information, wasting money and effort doing unnecessary to those who had offered to help (and yes my hard earned tax money). Like the time when the flight gone missing, first they say its at 1 pm before changing it into 2 pm. Typical unprofessional of how government handled a situation leading to many stupid conclusion and theories of conspiracy.

This thread is pretty funny, there's a guy who claimed to be an "inside source": http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...04224&page=198

I'm starting to think it was more than an accident. First it disappears from the radar, then it probably changed course...unless the nav system failed...of course I have no clue, I'm not an expert...

The Malays are showing themselves incapable of coordinating anything sophisticated like this. I was thinking of taking a trip through Asia next fall, but now I wonder if I should just skip Malaysia completely. These people are completely incompetent.

Lots of Chinese are frustrated with the Malay authorities, as well they should.

This is a one-off situation. You're going to skip Malaysia over fear of another accident, or that you just think all Malaysian are incompetent on the basis that this airline seems to be? Either way, that is quite extreme.

The plane was hijacked. We know that because the area the transponder stopped has been thoroughly searched and not so much as a fuel slick or floating cushion found, so it travelled further ...... but no one got a cell phone call out, as if guns were being held on them.

I doubt it was hijacked. Hijackers usually have political motives and want to draw as much attention as possible to what they've done. They aren't going to go through the trouble of hijacking a plane just to make it disappear. It could be possible that the plane went down during a struggle in the cockpit, but that scenario wouldn't make sense given what evidence is at hand.
