As a novelist I sometimes play what if
With all the news about the missing 777 I was wondering if anyone out there had considered that the cargo hold was the real reason: something there was valuable enough to divert the plane, perhaps parachute the thing out and then ditch the plane.
Pilots at MRI speak up on this--can you reach an altitude for parachuting and then open a cargo door without turbulence being an issue. Can you subdue the pasengers by oxygen deprivation combined with depressurization?
Lastly am I as usual crazy?
