The latest leads in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner suggest that the plane turned west and then flew for at least four hours after its last confirmed location between Malaysia and Vietnam.

Based on military radar data, this evidence makes it seem increasingly likely that the jet was commandeered along with its 239 passengers, whether by terrorists or crew members. Now people are discussing the possibility that the plane landed somewhere and is part of a larger plan.

There are many places that Flight 370 could have reached in four hours — its fuel could have taken it approximately 2,530 miles in any direction — even if it is thought to have flown west.

Some have speculated that the jet might have been flying to Pakistan or India, both of which are in the general direction the plane appears to have been headed. The Andaman Islands, where Indian authorities are currently searching, are another possible destination. However, the islands are largely uninhabited jungle and there is only one airport in that area.

One Business Insider reader speculates that the missing Boeing 777 might have been headed for a small and irregularly used airport in the politically unstable northern tip of Sri Lanka, territory associated with the supposedly defunct Tamil Tiger terrorist group.

Here’s a look at the airport from Google Earth:

Jaffna runway
This screenshot from Google Earth shows an aerial view of Jaffna airport.
This particular area of Sri Lanka has been rife with conflict. In 2009, Sri Lanka’s army defeated the Tamil Tiger rebels, also known as the LTTE, suppressing a separatist movement for the large Tamil population in the north. In 2009, TIME described the LTTE as “one of the most organised, effective, and brutal terrorist groups in the world.” After the Tamil defeat, Sri Lanka’s army began moving in to retake the territory, according to BBC.

Even if the plane was commandeered, of course, the intention might have been to crash it into something or crash it in place where it would never be found. Or the plane might have crashed prior to reaching its intended destination.

But it also seems conceivable that the plane was intentionally flown to an airport somewhere in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, or anywhere else within its range. The airport above, obviously, is only one of hundreds of possible destinations. (If you have compelling ideas or theories, we would be eager to hear them…)

Nice theory, tamil terrorists hijack the plane and try to land in Jaffna to demand for the Navi Billa resolution to pass?

Has somebody sent our scavenger to clean the cockpit ?

I think he chased the pilots away and took the plane to a very high altitude.

This is a possible as no flights are willing to land in that airport, including the Sri Lankans, so they hijchaed and forcibly landed it there.

Missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370: Did jetliner fly into area controlled by Taliban?

At least 25 countries are now assisting in the search for the plane, intensifying challenges of co-ordinating ground, sea and aerial efforts.
The missing Malaysian airlines flight MH370 may have been deliberately flown under the radar to Taliban-controlled bases on the border of Afghanistan, it has emerged, as authorities said that the final message sent from the cockpit came after one of the jet's communications systems had already been switched off.

Eight days after the Boeing 777 vanished, the Independent has learnt that Malaysian authorities are seeking diplomatic permission to investigate a theory that the plane was flown to one of a number of Taliban strongholds on the Afghan border in North West Pakistan.

The latest revelation came as it was revealed that the final message sent to air traffic controllers from the jet's cockpit - " All right, good night" - was spoken after someone on board had already disabled the plane's ACARS reporting system.

Around 14 minutes later someone also switched off the plane's transponder, which identifies it to commercial radar systems. Malaysian Air force Major General Affendi Buang told reporters that the two separate actions, along with the calm message in between, "will tell you something" about whether the diversion was deliberate or not.

At least 25 countries are now assisting in the search for the plane, intensifying challenges of co-ordinating ground, sea and aerial efforts. Countries known to be involved include Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Burma, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia, with special assistance regarding satellite data requested from the US, China and France.

On Sunday Malaysian officials examined a sophisticated flight simulator belonging to the chief pilot of the missing jet, after experts said only a trained person could have turned off the plane's communication equipment and flown it off course without being detected.

Working on the theory that the plane was intentionally flown off course, police have delved into the backgrounds of captain Zaharie Ahmed Shah, 53, and 27-year-old co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid. Their homes were searched on Saturday, and on Sunday, experts examined the simulator Mr Shah kept in his home which he had built himself.

There have been no reported sightings or concrete leads on the whereabouts of the jet, which vanished from radar screens shortly after it took off in Kuala Lumpur at 00.40am on the morning of 8 March, destination Beijing.

The final confirmed location for MH370 on civilian radar was at 1.21am, but it was spotted less than an hour later on military radar, far to the west of that position. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak revealed that "ping" signals from the plane was last received at 8.11am.

Based on data collated by the British company Inmarsat's satellite network, at that point the plane was on one of two possible arcs - one stretching north from Thailand to Kazakhstan and crossing more than 10 countries, and one to the south over Indonesia and out across the southern Indian ocean. Experts have said the aircraft could have been on the ground when it sent its satellite signals.

Boeing 777s need a runway of at least 5,000ft long, limiting the number of possible sites within the 2,200 nautical mile-radius it is believed the plane could have flown from its last known position.

Last night sources in Kuala Lumpur assisting with the investigation told The Independent that full diplomatic permissions were being sought in order to rule out the theory that the plane could have flown to areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan that are not under government control.

Large areas of the southern half of Afghanistan are ruled by the Afghan Taliban, while some areas of north-west Pakistan, adjacent to or near to the Afghan border, are controlled by the Pakistani Taliban.

A spokesman for Malaysian Airlines said: "These are matters for the jurisdiction of those regions and Malaysia's armed forces and department of civil aviation. In regard to Pakistan and Afghanistan, we cannot explore those theories without permission. We hope to have that soon."

For a commercial plane to pass undetected through these regions, which are highly militarised with robust air defence networks, many run by the US military, would require a combination of extremely sophisticated navigation, brazen audacity and security failure by those monitoring international airspace. However, with so little known about the fate of the plane, and the investigation growing in scale every day, it is yet another line of enquiry that remains impossible to rule out. On Sunday Pakistani civil aviation officials said they had checked their radar recordings and found no sign of the missing jet.

Malaysian officials said they had requested help from a dozen Asian countries and had asked them to provide radar data. They have also asked for assistance from Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and France, which administers a handful of islands deep in the southern Indian Ocean.

"The search area has been significantly expanded, and the search area has changed. We are now looking at large tracts of land, crossing 11 countries as well as deep and remote oceans," said Malaysia's Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein.

Khalid Abu Bakar, Malaysia's police chief, said investigators researching the backgrounds of the people who boarded Flight MH370 had found no passengers with aviation expertise. He said a number of foreign intelligence agencies had been working with the Malaysians, though he said information was still pending from some countries with nationals on the flight.

Police are looking at the personal, political and religious backgrounds of all crew members. A number of ground support staff who might have worked on the plane are also being investigated.

Officials urged reporters not to jump to conclusions on the pilot and co-pilot, who they said had not asked to work together that day, and had not requested additional fuel for the aircraft.

Reuters reported police had said their inquiries had found no links between Captain Shah and any militant group.
