    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

    More from 777Searcher

    Part of Flight 370 tail section ?

    A close up of what could be a piece of the vertical stabilizer of Flight 370. Imaged over Gulf of Thailand between Malaysia and Vietnam on 03/15 (just a week after Flight 370 disappeared)

    Note that in the third photo, there are two distinctly darker areas within the outline of the stabilizer. Might either of these be the MAS logo? See logo superimposed in both of these areas, in the first two images.

    Did part of the aircraft, or perhaps another aircraft with which it may have collided, fall into the Gulf of Thailand ?

    I am uncertain whether this aircraft could have flown with a big chunk of its tail torn away. But there are plenty of historical photos of B17s and B24s in WW2 which were able to fly with large chunks of wing and tail sections missing.

    Perhaps after the final turn, the rudder located in the tail section eventually jammed after the tail was damaged? This would render a turn impossible? And could have led the subsequent long one-direction flight ?
