One smallest of facts , removes the greatest of suppositions .
To abscond with a Plane of that size , a pilot would think to take it either above or below
Choices are sometimes a real beotch .
if the Pilot is culpable ,,, they would not want to deal with over 200 opposing people
Ergo this : Above oxygen level .
Take it up .
and hope the Oxygen mask run out before the planes fuel does
200 starved for air people are now subdued .
Where to now Johnny Boy ?
Yes , just where would you go ?
that's the question , isn't it .
Answer : D.B. Cooper
Pilot sets the Auto Pilot
grabs the goodies from the passengers
( he may have been tipped to some interesting goodies,,,,
a passenger was in possession of )
let's say he was to receive some bonus if he could grab some secret formula like goodies
such as plans .
Now he drops the plane over a pick-up ship stationed at a predetermined locale .
and from 1000 feet
he , his stolen goods , and a couple nice chutes ,,,
take an exit Visa for the Water below , to be picked up by the ship .
he has set the plane below radar ,, and eventually it will run out of fuel miles away
from his pick up ship .
Aboard the pick up ship
is a chopper to take him ( again , under the radar ) to a landing site on solid ground .
There he turns over the goods to the buyer
takes his forged or stolen passport ,, rents a small airplane ,, hops over a few Islands .
Takes a nice room at a tourist resort ,,,
and spends the rest of his life enjoying watching re-runs of Mission Impossible
T.V. Shows .
Ok , I just thought it all up .
Given that my scenario is as good a theory as any ,,, I may even begin to believe
I figured it out , and try for any reward offered .
