Yes, true. Of course, the servicemen watching the scene wouldn't have known the motives; they reported being puzzled about it,
A couple of different, but related, motives have been offered. They didn't want the public to know that Earhart was deliberately far off-course and in enemy territory (cameras had been added to the exterior of her plane before she left the US), and they didn't want the public to know, after the war was won and the enemy bombed into submission, that they'd captured, jailed, then executed America's heroine of the air. They didn't want a huge public lashing-out at Japan; they just wanted to put everything behind them at the end of the war, and move forward to normalizing relations with Japan over time.

Come to think of it, there's another big potential reason; if she was on a spy mission for the US, it would mean that the US gov't could be responsible for her death; asking her to accept those cameras on her plane and to diverge from her original flight path to fly over enemy territory on her trip across the Pacific. Could have caused some scandal. And the gov't wouldn't have wanted to admit to spying. Overall a potential hot-potato issue for the US gov't.

One of the people who investigated the Kwajalein/Saipan story, interviewing many locals and some Navy personnel, has been planning to make a documentary film of his investigation (this, within the last year or two). I hope he pulls it off; it would be pretty interesting.

Well, we know that they didn't want the plane wreckage found by looking where it wasn't or merely pretended to look for it knowing that it wasn't in the water. If it was ditched at sea, it was down near Diego Garcia where eye witnesses in the Maldives said they saw it flying overhead at a low altitude. Or it was flown into Pakistan or a former Soviet Republic in a scenario where it piggy backed another plane's transponder signal. I'd go with the eye witnesses who saw it flying south into the Indian Ocean toward Diego Garcia.
The pilot and accomplices killed the rest of the flight crew and then murdered every passenger by draining the plane of oxygen at an extreme altitude. Then it was flown and ditched into the water. Or possibly destroyed by a surface to air missile to tie up any loose ends. Probably the hijackers parachuted out ala D. B. Cooper. So what or who was on board that they wanted or wanted out of the picture? And why did Aviation Authorities go along with the hijacking operation? Add this to the Flight 800 cover up.

The hijacker theory was ruled out, though. They've confessed that it was a suicidal pilot all along. And what would be the motive for hijacking a plane full of dead passengers, anyway? Though I'll grant you that the sighting over the Maldives is the one puzzle piece that doesn't fit; that flight path doesn't follow the ping trajectory that not only radar picked up, but the pilot's home flight simulator shows, we're told.

My theory is that this flight crashed due to the crew and passengers being incapacitated due to a mechanical issue with the plane. The problem with that theory is that supposedly plane pieces have in fact been recovered which means that the plan did in fact break up though I can't imagine this plane hitting the water at such a speed that would cause it to completely fall apart not to mention with the technology we have today you would think we could have found it the exact same day it went missing but since the search appears to be ending completely we may never know what truly happened to MH-370

There was so much confusion when it was reported missing, that they didn't know where to look. At first they thought it had gone northwest, over India along the Himalayas to Central Asia/Kazakhstan or Xinjiang. Precious time was lost figuring out which way it had gone, and how far.

Looking at all the false and just plain wrong information we received after the initial disappearance, it is unlikely we will ever know the details.

There were various people possessing detailed technological information aboard the flight which the authorities did not want reaching their destination which I feel might have been the reason for the strange disappearance. There was also a deliberate attempt to keep the cargo list details secret which makes me think there was something being transported which 'they' did not want to be brought to light. For example special cargo is often sent by normal passenger plane and no-one flying in the plane knows anything about it.

It could have been simply that the cargo of lithium batteries were not as safe as they should have been and the airline did not want to admit their fault. Insurance companies do not pay out if the terms of their policy are not strictly kept. Basically, it could be many things which caused flight MH370 to disappear but I bet with the satellite surveillance these days, there is not even an insect which moves and the USA, China, Russia, Israel etc does not know about it, so I do not think the authorities have any doubt about where this plane is.

One thing we have got out of this total chaotic mess is a search of the sea in and around one of the deepest areas of the ocean off Australia. Down there there are high mountains reaching up from the sea bed thousands of feet and we were told the sonar-carrying ships would search that area for debris of MH370. Do you really think the sonar being pulled along by a surface ship could navigate all the valleys and peaks of that area? No, our technology is not good enough to map the terrain of that area of sea bed and there are probably all kinds of things which are in those mountains and which we will never find out about.

The alphabet agencies are masters of confusion and there is a reason why we will never find this plane, because they dont want it found.

The following two humungous sized threads have an amazing amount of detail in them if you want to investigate further.

I'm surprised MH-370 wasn't found immediately before the election.

They suck. They had eyewitnesses report seeing that jet flying low over the Maldives islands yet they never thought to search there. And Diego Garcia is very close to the area with planes and radar. Hmmmm.... Then a piece of the plane washes up on Madagascar which is close to where it was last seen but they still insisted it came from a long way away where they pissed away time and money looking for it.

If this was the work of alien abduction, do you really think the media would ever cover it?
