AugieDoggyDaddy: BrimStonez: I am starting to believe this was a hijacking.  These two Iranians were trying to travel to Europe for asylum.  They could not get the European flight they wanted so they took a Beijing flight.

After they were airborne it is possible they took control of the aircraft and forced the pilots to change course to the west, switch off the transponders and radios, and reduced altitude.  If you look at the military radar reports this looks like what they saw.  Once the aircraft was below the radar threshold they could not be tracked anymore.

I believe the aircraft ran out of fuel and crashed in the Indian Ocean.  We may never know for sure.

Except that they had tickets to Amsterdam and Copenhagen.


One of them was going to Germany, where his mother was waiting at the airport for him
