    Also...I'm confused why some (including the US) are thinking the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean since there has been no beacon from the black box indicating contact with salt water. ??

    Hoping this latest news means the plane landed on an island.

However this theory makes little sense without a clear motive. But all these actions seem to reflect those of an aviation expert
    ok have just got back on:

    1st read that chinese recorded a seismic event and went yep that's it, it crashed into the ocean where they originally lost it on radar and they all died.

    Then read that about the Adamanan (?) Islands.....so now am back to hijacked on a deserted island and all alive!!!!!!!!!!

    like I said before, this is going to make a good book and even better movie in the future!!!!!

    and re the aviation expert: I am back the Uigher professor who is an electronics professor and has had flight training in Europe...I just cant seem to shake the coincidence of this.

    all I can at this moment is...whoa this truly has been mind boggling, I really hope these guys are alive!

    I was baffled by this too earlier this arv (Australian time) and someone posted an excellent link they found that explained that it doesn't go off in deep water... only on the surface

    and thanks re the earthquake....would say that is what the chinese recorded...

    Eerie to me to find that the Andaman Islands were prominently featured in a Sherlock Holmes story? Eerie because earlier today I was thinking to myself that the only way to crack this mystery would be to badger Sherlock into using his Mind Palace

    A map showing how these waypoints connect to each other would be quite revealing, because it would show us whether or not this plane was traveling in a straight line.

    Yes, I think I remember reading that upthread (gitana1?) ... But I guess I'm still confused as it seems it would still go off when first entering the water (before ending up in the depths).

    Obviously, there are nuances to this I don't understand.

    CNN once against summarily dismissing the Reuters report, unnecessarily emphasizing that the report cites "unnamed" sources. I think CNN is desperate to quash any scoop that isn't their own.

    This is why:

    The Coco Islands belong to Myanmar. However, over the last several years, there have been reports of the Chinese creating military infrastructure there. There have also been reports that the islands, which are too close to the Andamans for India's comfort, have been leased out to China by Myanmar.

    That wiki article on the Coco Islands states that it's a territory of Australia. Whereas it has previously been reported that it is owned by Myanmar. Did you post the wrong Coco Island or is that the same one?

    Why would someone who has bad intententions, fly via waypoints?

    They are in the navigation computers and easy to program a flight path rather than having to actually navigate while flying at night.

    Old school navigation techniques are not likely to be a proficiency of someone with bad intentions.

    There is a "Great Coco Island" and "Little Coco Island" pair off the northern tip of the largest island in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
