    That article was written shortly after the accident and didn't account for what we know now: That the ACARS was off but the satellite link was somehow on doing periodic "handshakes" with the satellite, that radar tracked the plane crossing that airport and the turning tight up the strait of Malacca, that the information recovered from satellite handshakes (burst time offset and burst frequency offset, not accounted for in the article) has the plane then turning left and flying flying towards the Southern Indian Ocean, where it finally crashed (basically the handshakes lasted for as long as the fuel would last).

    Basically, the article is factually and totally wrong and the scenario proposed there just didn't happen. The article says "What I think happened is the flight crew was overcome by smoke and the plane continued on the heading [from the first turning point to the Palau Langkawi airport], probably on George (autopilot), until it ran out of fuel or the fire destroyed the control surfaces and it crashed. You will find it along that route–looking elsewhere is pointless." We still don't know exactly where the plane crashed, but we do know a lot of places where it exactly didn't crash because it is incompatible with the factual information. An on that extended heading from the Palau Langkawi airport it did not crash.

    I posted this about a week after the aircraft went missing on Chris Goodfellows blog. Want to find the wreckage? Go look here: Diamantina Deep in Diamantina Trench, at 8,047 m (26,401 ft) deep; Sunda Trench has a depth of 7,258–7,725 m (23,812–25,344 ft).

    Good luck, The Captain planned this very well.
