Great question!
(The reasonable answer is because no pilot in their right mind would want to turn the transponder off.)

Why have it located/placed where it can be turned off? Especially when taking into account hijackings and the like. There must be a reason other than cost or leaving an open door to additional tragedy (like not being able to find a missing plane).

Everything can be disconnected, even the FDR and CVR. (The black boxes). It is repeated over and over again on huge airline forum that in the case if a fire, or electrical problem, everything needs to be able to be disconnected. And you can fly the plane safely w/o a transponder, but not fly it safely with a transponder that has short circuited.
(Anyhow, this is the reason I keep reading, I'm not defending it)

:doh:

So back to the beginning?

We have a missing plane in the Gulf of Thailand
No distress signal or any communication
No debris found where it last signaled.

What else is out there..

:saber:
:ufo:

Some REAL Concrete answers would be great

Don't forget the stolen passports. ;)

If nothing is found by the weekend, i'm going to go into max :scared: mode.

Even though the Atlantic is deeper, Air France flight AF447 was not located until 5 days post crash.
