RUSH: Now, the Malaysian airline. I’ve got a theory. Let me try this theory on you. Of all the search teams, which do you think is the best, has the highest available tech? Well, you got a ChiCom search team; you got the Malaysian airline search team; you got a US search team. Which team do you think probably — (interruption) It is us. If you want to find out where the plane is, my theory is look at where the US is searching.
How about this? How about this theory? How about the jet is flying along and you have a total electronic failure but the engines keep working? We’ve been told that the engines, the airplane kept sending data somehow, pinging a satellite even after it was lost from radar. There have been so many confusing reports about whether or not the data that was pinging was coming from the engines or not. I mean, it’s just impossible to keep up with this.
But what happened if — and my guess is as good as any. You’ve got an airplane flying along, you have a total electronics failure, but it continues to be air-worthy, the engines are working. I don’t know if this is possible, given electronic ignition and all that, but let’s say it is. So then the crew says, “We got to get back home. We got to get back to Kuala Lumpur. We can’t fly with no electronics.”
It’s dark, nighttime. They fly over a bunch of unfriendly countries, and they can’t identify themselves, and they’re not identified, there are no lights on. There’s been a total electronic failure. What if some hostile country flew up there and shot it down and then discovered their mistake and nobody wants to admit what happened? Have you heard that theory from anybody? Okay. Is my theory as good as anybody else’s that you’re hearing out there? Yeah. I think my theory holds up, and it works well.
