Certainly more money is the solution. Someone out there just knows what's happening but is not paid enough to come forward.

Have they looked behind the grassy knoll?

Is it too soon to start a Kickstarter campaign to find out what went wrong with their crowd-funded investigation?

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.

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

I just want to say "bravo!" to subby for making me chuckle and feel bad about it.

They're not even crowdfunding a search. From TFA, they're looking to raise $5M to pay off a whistleblower with 'inside information' on what 'really happened'.

$5M? Why yesssssss, I dooooooooo have some very, very important and relevant inside information.

Imagine if this crowdfunding kickstartery malarky had been around in them 9/11 days. Millions would have poured into research on the effects of thermite on chicken wire and stone.

Your next book would be the thing. Picture the little round "sticker" the publisher would print on the cover: "From the only person that had insight enough to understand what happened to MH370."

Well, I guess Global Warming deniers, birthers, fans of Loose Change, and other gullible people needed something to part them with their money again.

It's in the ocean.  Where's my reward?

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.

With the plane. Feel free to go get it.

I think its more likely to have glided in. A direct impact would have created a massive debris feild.

A soft landing could have kept it relatively intact, it could have sunk whole slowly.

Also missing; the reason that I, or anyone except relatives, should care about this airplane.

The cargo of batteries crossed the beam of Dick Cheney's weather/earthquake machine, resulting in an anti-gravity field that dragged the plane into orbit and beyond. Right now it's in an elliptical orbit around the sun that won't intersect with Earth again for 370 years.

My cousin-in-law's buddy's roommate's dentist picked up the info in the bridgework of an ex-Halliburton contractor, and Alan Turing and Elvis helped him decrypt it from their secret headquarters in Area 91.
