Sounds feasible, I'm no expert so can't really argue against what he says. I would like to hear the opinion of somebody "in the know" who disagrees.

The FBI are the latest to be roped in:
The FBI is aiding the Malaysian government's search for a Malaysia Airlines jet missing for more than a week.

The US investigators are believed to be helping the Malaysians examine a home flight simulator belonging to one of the pilots of flight MH370 for clues.

The pilot is said to have deleted some files from the computer simulator.

But the official stressed there was no guarantee the FBI analysis would yield further clues.

Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu said some data was deleted on 3 February from the simulator found at Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah's home and that investigators were trying to recover the deleted files.

The acting transport minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, stressed the captain should be considered innocent until proven guilty and that members of his family were co-operating with the investigation. Deleting files would not necessarily be suspicious, particularly if it were done to free up memory space.

I still reckon its had some sort of failure or fire that's led to damage to electrical systems and rapid depressurisation. Crew have had just enough time to start trying to divert back to nearest airport before losing consciousness. Plane flies off course till it runs out of fuel and hits the water.

Always wondered what use seat belts in planes were anygood for other then to make people feel secure. The lap belt is not used in cars due to the fact it's dangerous so in a plane which goes much quicker is does not make any sense. Don't see pilots without safety harnesses if I'm right. Certainly fighter pilots. If your plane goes down if you survive then it's pure luck rather than the belt. It's a shame if the plane has gone down and like the air France plane they are all in the seat belts as even one body on the surface could give a better idea on finding the poor souls.

They stop people bouncing loose around the cabin, causing injury to others.

They help keep walkways clear of dead and injured for speedier evacuation of survivors.

They make identifying bodies easier in instances where seating has been allocated, as they can check the seat numbers against the names that were booked.

Oh, c'mon. They're seatbelts, they're not for all the sweetness and light bits of flying, they're for when you're going down screaming.

Well, they're probably not going to save your life in the event of a crash, but they might make the difference for a rough landing.

As for wearing them in-flight, sudden turbulence can strike at any time and in the, albeit unlikely, event of cabin de-pressurization you won't get sucked out of the window.

Well, it's still missing. Will it ever be found? Will it become another Shergar/Lord Lucan? How depressing for the family and friends. Imagine your wife/husband/child/parent getting a flight and just never seeing them again.
