Jacobin: I'd start doing some research beach combing some remote Pacific islands looking for debris for a reasonable retainer sufficient to fund first class airfare and acceptable accommodations
spawn73: If you knew what happened, be aware that newspapers might pay more.Also, I'd suggest writing a book, which will sell out once you reveal that its contents are actually correct.
Tr0mBoNe: Certainly more money is the solution. Someone out there just knows what's happening but is not paid enough to come forward.
CruJones: It's in the ocean. Where's my reward?
olddinosaur: Tr0mBoNe: Certainly more money is the solution. Someone out there just knows what's happening but is not paid enough to come forward.The truth seems simple enough.An unknown person, maybe the pilot or possibly a passenger, took control of the plane, diverted her to a course between 210 and 240, which aims it to the emptiest part of the ocean, then shut off the radios and transponders, took it up to 45,000 feet and depressurized, killing everyone on board.That leaves the plane on autopilot, and if it was flying a little nose--heavy, at 500 mph it would not take much aileron to keep her level. But once she ran out of fuel, she would lose speed; the nose would dip down and she would head straight down to the water, probably at 500 mph.Both wings would shear on impact, and the force of hitting the water would certainly bash in the front windows and crack the fuselage as well. She would have sunk very quickly.Unfortunately, you have 4000 square miles of ocean to search, and water is 10,000 feet deep on average I believe.Fat chance. That plane will never be found.
