So you probably heard about the jet that has been missing for more than a week. Latest reports suggest that it flew towards the Indian ocean.
Anyway, there is a website that crowd-sources satellite footage analysis. I doubt that it will do much good because the potential search area is monstrously huge by now and the resolution of those pictures is rather low, but I like the idea of crowd sourcing problems.
Here is some interesting stuff I found (probably fishing boats or something similar, they do look different from other boats I have found so far though):

Now they are suggesting it was "stolen." Still begs the question though, where is it and where are the passengers? Whole thing is crazy.
The communications systems of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 were deliberately disabled, Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak has said.
According to satellite and radar evidence, he said, the plane then changed course and could have continued flying for a further seven hours.
He said the "movements are consistent with the deliberate action of someone on the plane".

Red Menace;5731429Now they are suggesting it was "stolen." Still begs the question though, where is it and where are the passengers? Whole thing is crazy.
It is all very strange. Malaysian military radar supposedly tracked it heading to the north-west after crossing back over the Malaysian peninsula. Then some satellite pinged the plane 7 hours later and got a range estimate. By filtering out potential locations outside of the plane's range they got those corridors stretching into western China and into the southern Indian ocean.
Now the weird part is - if the plane took the north-western route China or India should have picked it up on their military radar. If it took the southern route then why did the Malaysian radar track it heading north-west?
What makes most sense to me at this point is a failed terror attack on either India or China. Maybe the passengers crashed the plane or maybe one of those countries shot it down.

I wonder whether a country that wanted to know how it worked stole it, flew it to some out of the way airbase and executed everyone.

Optimistic... Wondering mostly if this was a manmade phenomena or a Bermuda Triangle-esque experience. There's always aliens, too!

I think that the most plausible explinations are: Somebody (possibly one of the pilots, but "evincence" such as one of them having a private flight sim says nothing, somebody else with pilot skills) hijacked or stole the plane and flew off to some destination. Perhaps they arrived there, landed the plane in one piece and either inprisoned or simply executed all passengers, perhaps it crashed into something as planned or they crashed or got shot down on route to whatever their destination was. For a simply "pilot suicide" it seems far too complex (assuming the pilot wouldn't want anyone to ever find out it was a suicide for reasons such as a life insurance)
