Thinking the unthinkable about the disappearance Flight MH370

It just may be that the real reason to hijack this airplane was to gain possession of a Boeing 777. This was very clever capture of this airliner. This notion has gained credence over the six days following its disappearance.

There is some speculation that Flight MH370 is to be used in a 9/11 style attack on the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, one of  worlds tallest buildings and the pride of Malaysia. If this were so then the hijacked flight would, with all is transponders turned off, have already hit the Petronas Towers before anyone knew there was a problem with the aircraft. 

There is a real possibility that some group wanted this aircraft so they could attack a target, somewhere in the world, with a weapon of mass destruction, You can pick on your own from a basket of chemical, biological or in the extreme, nuclear possibilities. 

It  looks like this is a far fetched notion. It seems to be in the same group as an extraterrestrial kidnapping. But it is not. Someone went to a great deal of effort to turn off aircraft communication systems. Someone went to a great deal of trouble to hide this aircraft as it changed course and flew to who knows where. 

Several agencies have said "You can't just fly a Triple 7 and not have a radar trace,"  One senior US official, citing information Malaysia has shared with the United States, told CNN that" here is probably a significant likelihood" that the aircraft is on the floor of the Indian Ocean.

Anyone who plans the capture of a Boeing 777 and doesn't crash it where their actions get noticed has other plans for the plane, They would have a place to land this plane already prepared in advance. It is time to stop thinking that this was a crime of opportunity. Someone made this happen. 

It may be entirely likely that whoever hijacked this plane plans to spoof another Boeing 777's flight and become that flight as ascertained by taking over the transponder, UHF and VHF radios, automatic beacons, GPS and computer communications systems of the spoofed plane. The original plane would be destroyed in a dark zone as the former Flight MH370 takes its place, on its way to deliver a deadly cargo somewhere in the world. 

At first glance it seems unlikely that this could happen. At first glance it would have seemed unlikely that the world could lose Flight MH370.
