    The KEY is that the plane's ELTs (Emergency Locator Transmitters) did not go off. I understand there were 4 – 6 ELTs on that plane. They can not be easily be turned off. If the plane had crashed on land or sea they would have gone off sending a beacon signal to satalites over head. I believe the plane has landed somewhere.

    How long can you milk continuing "analysis" of speculation in the absence of any real information? There's more stuff going on in the world. I'm more interested in the explosive event in Ukraine and the potential actions and reactions of NATO, Britain and the EU.

    Cool it on 370 with the total coverage until you have real news. You're supposed to be a news channel. How about some news.

    CNN, please stop the 24/7 coverage of the missing Malaysian aircraft. You have turned five minutes of facts into an endless stream of speculation and opinion. Report the news, don't invent it. Resist the urge to chase ratings.( although I find it difficult to believe anyone can watch one more second of your "BREAKING NEWS" about nothing new.) CNN's credibility is in jeopardy. Leave yellow journalism to the pundits. I'm sure your anchor's scream uncontrollably during commercials. You have me longing for another disaster so you might report on something else.

    Can the acor system be reprogrammed?? Possibly making the plane appear somewhere its not?? Maybe taken off and put on another plane? Reprogrammed to be flight whatever?? The plane clearly was taken somewhere, amd I'm sure the plan was not to ditch it..I pray all is alive and god bless the family members...
