I’ve been avoiding this story because CNN already has your pointless conjecture needs more than covered, and at this point there’s not much else to do. At least, that’s what I thought until I read this from The Aviationist’s David Cenciotti:
In a previous post which listed all the “active scenarios”, we mentioned the (unlikely but not impossible) theory that MH370 could have been shot down.
Since then, we’ve received several emails and comments, and talked with a few other journalists who believe that, there are still some chances that the Malaysian Boeing 777 was shot down some time during its 7 hour flight.
Even if it’s at least far fetched, if we are ready to accept that an hijacked plane shadowed another wide body to escape detection by radars, something that would be difficult to execute and thus unlikely, we can’t but explore the scenario of the hijacked plane shot down by an air-to-air or surface-to-air missile.
Especially because several details would perfectly fit this theory.
Read the whole thing.
We have yet to see the Perfect Theory filling in all the unknowns without contradicting or neglecting any of the known-knowns. And there’s a good chance we may never fully know.
What do you think?
