What Happened to FLT 370?

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a Boeing 777-200 took off from Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, at 12:41 a.m. Saturday (Friday afternoon ET). It was scheduled to arrive in Beijing at 6:30 a.m. the same day, after a 2,300-mile (3,700-kilometer) journey. But around 1:30 a.m., air traffic controllers in Subang, outside Kuala Lumpur, lost contact with the plane as it was flying over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam.

Crawling out of the Woodwork

From Wikipedia: The aircraft was a Boeing 777-2H6ER, serial number 28420, registration 9M-MRO. The 404th Boeing 777 produced, it first flew on 14 May 2002, and was delivered new to Malaysia Airlines on 31 May 2002.

An HTTP 404 error means "not found", and this is the 404th Boeing 777 produced.
Theories abound... from Terrorism and Catastrophic Systems Failure to Space Aliens and the Chinese version of the Bermuda Triangle.

Have at it

What are your theories on the disappearance of FLT 370
