It's so good to see the delusional are slithering out of the woodwork.
Do you have any understand ...
FLASH - THE PIVOTAL DEBATE ON THE FATE OF THE KH370 PASSENGERS ON CHINA DAILY FORUM
Not delusional, but simply imaginative, and actually, very realistic, my friend.
First, let us debate the question of whether or not there was a need for the plane to refuel, without debating how it was done.
The plane MH370 was fueled to fly from Kuala Lampur to Beijing, leaving at 12:41 AM and arriving at 5:30 AM, for a flying time of 5 hours 50 minutes. Satellite data confirmed by PM Razak no less, indicated the plane was still flying at 8:11 AM at the least, for a flying time of 7 hours 30 minutes. Practically all planes regardless of their maximum fuel capacity are metered with enough fuel to reach their destination, plus an allowance for a few hundred miles more, which in flying time is not generally more than 45 minutes at the most. The difference between the fuel on board and the fuel needed to fly up to 8:11 AM was 1 hour and 40 minutes, which means, the plane needed an extra hour's of fuel to keep flying to the time of its last ping recorded by the satellite. Unless it was refueled in the air, it would have to refuel on the ground. The clock does not lie. Maps can be tweaked to allow for ocean current drift, but time, flying time is a fixed fact that demands an answer as to how the plane could have flown until 8:11 AM. Answer this, and maybe, I would agree I was delusional after all, but if not, then could it be yourself instead?
Next, we can guess various scenarios of how the plane could have landed and refueled without the general public suspecting it did. The first scenario is if it landed in a secret military base in Australia. Then everything you said is impossible to do in a commercial airport becomes not only possible, but extremely easy to do. While it might be delusional to assume that the KH370 landed in a commercial airport rather than a military airport, it is quite realistic to believe instead that it would preferentially have used an Australian military air base as it first choice.
