Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
Catastrophic Cockpit Windshield Failure
There are many similarities - disruption of controls, and at 35000 ft the effect would have been instantaneous and far more lethal, unlikely there could have been time for the pilots to react with oxygen masks or SOS. messages. I think that it is strange this idea has not seen more discussion. Once pressures were equalized, the plane could have continued to fly on autopilot, as in the Payne Stewart incident until it ran out of fuel.
