    The 2 stolen passport holders apparently bought their tickets at the same time.

    Doesn't explain why radar and ADS-B contact was lost

    Its a push of a button and your gone.

    Primary radar has no range and thats why SSR is used, Primary in SA only covers 50Nm radius from ORTIA. Worst of all flying in SA not everywhere is even covered by SSR.

    They weren't flying in or out of SA...

    Are you suggesting it's flying around still with the pilots negotiating which brand of Chinese tea they should be drinking with hijackers? They had 7.5 hours fuel from point of disappearance. Someone will have picked it up if it didn't crash in the sea somewhere.

    No, simply that unless you can cover the world by primary radar, sticking a radar dome up every 50km you can push a button and you will vanish off every radar/ADB-S screen instantly.

    Air France 447 took 5 days to discover the first wreckage and 2 years to find black box. Most theorists said terrorism and hijacking. They were wrong

    But I guess if you are a conspiracy fanboy, be my guest. I'll stick to the simplest explanation for now

    So they're still circling out of primary radar contact are they?

    Nobody uses it as it is completely useless. If No-one has it and you turn your transponder off they would have been able to fly a min of 4167Km from last radar contact before running out of fuel. Now get a divider and draw a circle 4167Km from last contact and see how many unused airfields you can find. Being a 772 you can eliminate all fields shorter than 2300m. Im pretty sure you will still find 50 to 100 suitable runways

    You are missing my point...

    But nonetheless. What is the point of hijacking an aeroplane and being ultra secretive about it? Kind of defeats the object. Doesn't it? Unless you're the CIA In which case anything goes. But I digress. Let the conspiracy theorists go wild.
