I just read the same article. It seems to contradict all the previous rumors re: "pilot suicide", etc.

Still shocked in this day and age with satellites and GPS they can't figure out what happened. There is more data about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.

You would think that if it had hit the water fast and hard, that more floating debris would most likely have been spotted or washed ashore somewhere compared to the minimal findings as of now.

Odd...

The flap not being deployed means very little. When you run out of fuel in a Boeing 777 you CANNOT deploy the flaps anyway. So if it flew until it ran out of fuel, you can still do a controlled ditching but you cannot use flap. I find it incredible that professional investigators are using this flap's position as evidence for one scenario when it fits both scenarios basically equally.

The satellite data would also suggest a steep decent, so i'm not saying their conclusion is wrong, who knows, but the flap position is almost totally irrelevant as it would have been retracted for both scenarios unless a ditching was made BEFORE fuel was exhausted.

I still think pilot suicide is highly likely, the possibility that it may not have had human control during the last few minutes is irrelevant, it needed human control to get into that position in the first place, the aircraft made several seemingly deliberate turns around airspace in the hour after it went missing. Eventually ending up cruising south. I find it highly improbable that a fire or depressurization would have done that, seeing as the turns were so far apart, it had to be some sort of human input.

The onboard fire theory does not seem to carry any weight either flying for another 7 hours,the Swissair MD11 did not fly for long after fire broke out.
