Based on INMARSAT pings, at the last ping, the plane was somewhere along these two arcs:
theaviationist.com
Last night on the NBC evening news, someone apparently told the graphics guy to go make up a map showing a couple of arcs around Australia and Indonesia. And this was the result:
i60.tinypic.com
Which clearly means that Sir Mix-A-Lot is behind the whole thing.

Not if you stay in his baffles, Sea-man Beaumont, not if you stay in his baffles.  Come up right behind his propeller engines and he'll be as deaf as a post.

For the duration of the flight they were disassembling the plane piece by piece and dropping the parts to awaiting boats that transported them to be reassembled in an Iranian megafortress.
Got a little tricky there near the end but they managed somehow.

The jet is caught in a time warp. It took a jump to the left, then a step to the right.

calbert: that's definitely the dumbest headline for the linked-to story.

story makes no such claims as to "putting a jet inside another jet"

I'm not even going to continue correcting subby... I guess I just expected more out of the admins to you know, maybe actually read and comprehend the submitted articles without just doling out charity greens because an unfunny and over-played headline meme was used.

C18H27NO3: Your plane is over 700 feet long.


Actually, that scale is probably only good for sea level.  Since this is clearly submerged that would mean leon is even larger.

What if the other plane was a bizjet flown by someone you knew - he flies a flight plan you go dark you join in formation over the ocean and fly across India to one of the 'stan countries.

Or hey I am betting you can reconfigure the transponder with a tail number say from a G5 in south america or one that is being painted or in for maint.  You file a flight plan inflight as BillyBob's G5 leaving the Andaman islands across India to one of the 'stans. If the tail number can't be changed from the transponder interface, you buy one like Boeing is using.  Config the transponder with the new tail number and swap the bogus transponder at the proper time.  I believe that most avionics are serviceable from the front side so a swap should not take long.  There you go now you are BillyBobs G5 - it is night - you are only a blip and a voice.  Certainly there is an abandoned strip - it would only have to be 5000' or so long. There are all kinds of sources for used avionics, Trade-A-Plan even Ebay and Amazon (free shippin)

Then it could be aliens.

Sounds like someone is 0 for 922 on links submitted.  No wonder you are bitter.  I had 5 links accepted, back in the day before sponsored content.  Back when it was safe to not lock your doors at night, and neighbors knew each others names.

nekom: It's not the dumbest theory I've heard.


For a short time, yeah... After all, if sandpeople can ride in single file to hide their numbers, surely planes can, too...

... until your flight path is no longer directly in line with the radar station, that is. Then, unless the following plane is right on the ass of the leading plane, there will be separation in the returns. And even if it is, you get a return that will be too long.

It depends on the resolution of the radar, of course, but this theory would also require that the radar over a major flight corridor, normally filled with planes following other planes, is low resolution enough that it can't detect separation between two planes of a few hundred meters? And this in a country that is constantly worried about attacks from its neighbor?
