Assessing the theories about Flight 370′s disappearance

‘‘It suggests something else horrific is being planned, because no one is claiming credit or saying ’Ha ha, you have to deal with us.’ There have been no demands for the 200-something hostages on the aircraft,’’ Hamlin said. Although this line of thinking has spawned a great deal of speculation, there is no hard evidence for it. Investigators have not indicated that anyone on the plane has any affiliation with a terrorist organisation or showed signs of a murderous mind-set. Richard Aboulafia, an aviation analyst, said he doubts Hamlin’s scenario of the Boeing 777 being used to deliver a bomb. ‘‘Jeez Louise, why mess around with a triple-7? Go and rent yourself a Cessna,’’ Aboulafia said.
