I’ve blogged earlier about the possibilities that Malaysian MH370 is safely on the ground somewhere in central Asia. What is Central Asia? What do we know about it? Precious little I suspect. here’s a map:

This is the original silk route and the religion is predominently Islam. All of these countries were formerly in the USSR.
The countries within MH370 range are:
China (Tibet and Xinjiang provinces), Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
It’s speculation, I know, but I believe that MH370 is here somewhere. Searchers need to identify all airfields that have runways of 1500m or more because a B777 needs that distance to land. Now, it might be easy to suggest getting a satellite to take a look from space, searching for the aircraft on the ground but this would be too easy. Wherever the aircraft is, it will be in a hangar. Therefore we need to limit the search to airfields that have large hangars to house the aircraft.
I still wonder what the motive is. Any ideas?
