    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

    Could Malaysia MH370 have Landed at Great Coco Island?

     
    Like most of the world, I am really curious about what happened to Malaysia MH370. When reviewing what is being reported about the aircraft's whereabouts, I thought it could be conceivable that the aircraft would be able to land at the Great Coco Island. There's roughly 1,000 direct miles between the point where the transponder stopped operating, the point where Malaysia says they may have lost primary radar and the runway at Great Coco Island. Factor in a navigational route that uses way points to line the aircraft in the direction of the runway, you could conceivably have a 4-5 hour flight beyond the point of lost contact. Depending on the military presence on that particular outpost, the aircraft could be relatively unnoticed if there is not a large population (if any) on the island. Also, even if the plane didn't LAND there, should authorities be searching that area for wreckage? It seems that there is a great deal of lost time to make up for in the search.

    Images and research I conducted on Google Earth and information is property of Google.
