Another witness says she saw the burning plane while sailing and also two other planes along with it. I'm still leaning to my theory that it was shot down (either by an accident due to high level of escalation between countries in the area or on purpose but it was taken over by a terrorist/suicide-pilot.) But, then again, she says she thought she was losing her mind and was having marital problems and waited so long to come out and say this?

This is the original account. It's worthwhile reading the comments from other sailors too. Especially the one who did the GPS tracking analysis of the yacht.

Does your agenda extend any further beyond wasting our time and your own perverse satisfaction?

Can new technology prevent aircraft like Flight MH370 from disappearing without a trace? Airing October 8 at 9 pm on PBS Please be advised The Boeing Company is a funder of the NOVA series. Please note, however, that no funds from Boeing were applied to this specific episode.

It's been a year now, and I do not think that they're ever going to find Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

BEIJING — The locator beacon battery on the data recording black box had expired before Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 ever vanished shortly after leaving Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing, an interim report issued on the first anniversary of the tragedy revealed.

The Malaysian report, which shed little light on the Boeing 777's disappearance, was released Sunday as at least 30 relatives of the Chinese passengers on board gathered at a Beijing temple to mark the anniversary.

The interim report did not identify any significant areas for concern relating to either the plane or the crew. One newly identified issue, that may have hampered the subsequent search, was the December 2012 expiration of the battery of the locator beacon for the data recorder, more than a year before the flight. The battery in the cockpit voice recorder's locator beacon was working, the report said.

"Today, we stand united in remembering and honoring the 239 people, including 50 Malaysians, on-board MH370," Prime Minister Najib Razak said in a statement. "Our prayers are with them and their loved ones left behind – whose sorrow we share."

The interim report was required by international aviation authorities within one year of an incident. "The sole objective of the investigation is the prevention of future accidents or incidents, and not for the purpose to apportion blame or liability," the report said.

The most expensive search in aviation history has yet to find any debris from flight MH370, which satellite analysis suggests crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

MH370 report: Air traffic control supervisor asleep on duty after plane disappeared

http://www.smh.com.au/world/mh370-report-air-traffic-control-supervisor-asleep-on-duty-after-plane-disappeared-20150309-13yzdb.html

 For hours, officials struggled to comprehend how the plane suddenly dropped off radar scopes and ended all radio communication. At one point Malaysia Airlines insisted the plane was flying over Cambodia when in fact it was, according to available data, flying thousands of kilometres away on auto-pilot into the vast expanse of the southern Indian Ocean.

 Transcripts show a slow response from Malaysia's emergency services that would have been calamitous for any survivors had the plane ditched into the South China Sea as first thought.

 A distress phase was triggered by Malaysia's emergency services five hours and 13 minutes after the last communication from the plane.

 The first search aircraft took off at 11.30am Malaysian time – 10 hours after the plane disappeared.

 Transcripts show Vietnamese air traffic controllers never responded to at least one emergency message and appeared to have trouble understanding what was being asked of them by Malaysian officials. International rules introduced in 2010 require all pilots and air traffic controllers to pass a test in English.

 Mr Ross said a stand-out issue is why there was no co-ordination between Malaysia's military and the air traffic controllers as they tracked an unidentified aircraft.

"How did they not know it was not a threat to Malaysian security?"

 Mr Ross said if the military and civilian air traffic controllers had talked with each other an interceptor aircraft could have been dispatched to follow MH370 to establish what was going on.

 Mr Ross said a full audit is needed of Malaysia Airlines' maintenance control after the investigation team found that one of the batteries on the plane's flight-data recorders had expired in December 2012 and no record was available to show it had been replaced.

 He said there should be an immediate review of the relationship between air traffic control systems and the Malaysian military, an introduction of regular search and rescue exercises and a review of the competency in English language of air traffic controllers.

 "From the top down there should be an immediate review of the safety culture of Malaysia Airlines," said Mr Ross, who has worked as a security consultant at Kuala Lumpur airport.

MH370 search: Malaysian Airlines flight was flown off course deliberately


http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/flight-mh370-report-reveals-how-airline-incompetence-delayed-search-for-missing-jet-10094224.html

 Whoever was at the controls of MH370 when it disappeared a year ago wanted to evade detection. The interim report into the loss of the Boeing 777 and its 239 occupants shows the culprit was inadvertently helped by mistakes in the airline’s duty office.

 The Malaysia transport ministry released the report on the anniversary of the disappearance of the scheduled flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

 A damning transcript of conversations in the hours after the plane vanished shows that, long after contact was lost, Malaysia Airlines insisted that the aircraft was flying over Cambodia - a story that was later changed to suggest it was east of Vietnam’s coast.

I've read a few articles like this, ranging from rational and well researched to conspiratorial, tinfoil hat lunacy.  What I don't get is why so many people have difficulty accepting sometimes aircraft and ships are lost without a trace.  Ships orders of magnitude larger than an Airbus have disappeared without wreckage ever being found.  Even with all the advances in technology, the "big ocean" theory still remains viable. I don't buy the premise the a/c could not have gone where we looked because we didn't find it.
