What Really Happened to Malaysia’s Missing AirplaneFive years ago, the flight vanished into the Indian Ocean. Officials on land know more about why than they dare to say. Squawk poster note (frank1711) I know there have been many articles & posts about MH370 but this Atlantic article covers it all & covers the problems with the Malaysian government.

The Guy took off and went Dark... It is proven he had a flight simulator setup with the exact scenario.... In my opinion, it could not have been anything else.
I agree. He obviously did a good job of leaving little evidence.
Similar to Egypt air, late 1990's
An excellent article.
That article seems to be a fair recounting of what is known and a measured commentary on the Malaysian government. However, much of it is rather speculative. The air defense radar tracks certainly suggest a deliberate departure from the flight plan, once the plane was on a course over the Indian Ocean everything except the satellite data is pure speculation. Clearly someone diverted the flight but intent of that person is just a guess. It is entirely possible, for example, that the plane was hijacked but that everyone on the flight deck perished in an altercation and plane continued on auto pilot until it ran out of fuel. I am very dubious of the claim that satellite Doppler indicated acceleration beyond what would be the result of fuel exhaustion at altitude.
